(Once again we welcome the writings and insights of Bruce Wells, one of most relevant and powerful preachers of the Word of God today. Italicized inserts and commentary are mine. May God help us protect our children by preaching the truth of God’s Word, otherwise Satan is sure to pervert them.)
“For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.” Romans 1:26-27 (Vile passions means filthy, dirty desires.)

Pop Music star Sir Elton John and his boyfriend David Furnish were married on December 21, 1914 after 12 years of a civil relationship.
(CNN reported – Sir Elton John and David Furnish are now husband and husband. The two married Sunday in Britain, where same-sex marriage became legal earlier in the year. They announced last month the birth of the couple’s first child. Of course, there can be no husband unless there is or has been a wife. And there can be no wife unless there is or has been a husband. There is no such thing as a husband and a husband, even as there is no such thing as a wife and a wife. In either case, it is an immoral freak show. )
(THE GUARDIAN.COM reported – Sir Elton John and David Furnish have become fathers after using a surrogate mother in the U.S. The boy, Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John, was born in California on Christmas Day, the 63-year-old singer’s publicist confirmed today. Zachary, who weighed 7lb 15oz, is John’s first child with Furnish, with whom he formalized a civil partnership in 2005. In a joint statement, the couple told USMagazine.com that “Zachary is healthy and doing well” and declared themselves “overwhelmed with happiness and joy at this very special moment.” The identity of their son’s surrogate mother is being protected by the parents. It is not known whose sperm was used. The US is one of the most popular destinations for UK citizens hoping to enter into surrogate arrangements. In California, unlike in Britain, surrogates can legally be paid a fee for their services. Sums of £25,000 or more per baby are common.)
I. THE NATURAL-UNNATURAL DISTINCTION ERASED
Of course, the couple did not produce the child since that is physically impossible. In debating radical homosexual advocates over the years, I have always pointed out that their CHOICE of sexual activity is not only called by God a sin, it is unnatural. God never intended people of the same sex to engage in sexual activity, and there is absolutely ZERO way two people of the same sex can procreate.
(Not only does the Word of God warn us about those who CALL GOOD EVIL AND EVIL GOOD – Isaiah 5:2 – but a corollary to that is CALLING THE UNNATURAL NATURAL AND THE NATURAL UNNATURAL – Romans 1:26-27. This the Bible calls the REPROBATE MIND. REPROBATE MIND means DIVINELY DISAPPROVED OR UNAPPROVED THINKING. )
(John and Furnish represent the last days generation in which the Biblical distinctions between natural and unnatural, proper and improper, approved and disapproved, moral and immoral have not only been ERASED, but they actually have been REVERSED. In OTHER words, it has gone so far, that the gay community flaunts homosexuality as NORMAL (the RULE), and heterosexuality as ABNORMAL (the EXCEPTION). Nonetheless, the above picture of TWO HUSBANDS AND A BABY cries out ABNORMALITY and UNNATURALITY JUST AS SURELY AS TEETS ON A BULL.)
That is why it is so disturbing to watch the radical gay agenda advanced in this nation, which now of course includes homosexuals and lesbians bringing children into their perverted and sinful world. Listen, if these “couples” want to engage in deviant sexual activity, that is a choice they are making. However, for two men or two women, living in this unhealthy, unnatural, lifestyle to bring children into their perverted relationship, is selfish and reprehensible!
(Fact is that though these perverts adopt a non-perverted child, in a short time they will make him or her perverts like themselves. “Train up a child in the way that he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it” – Proverbs 22:6 – is a double-edged sword. For then the opposite is just as true, “Train up a child in the way that he should not go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” They take a child and dump him or her into their IMMORAL DEAD SEA where they too shall drown in the foul water of perversion and shame, only someday to be dried off in the fires of Hell. In other words, those who practice gay marriage and bring children into that environment, it is a DOUBLING OF HELL. You talk about the PERFECT STORM OF ETERNAL DESTRUCTION.)
II. JESUS THE SUPER-INTELLIGENT GAY MAN
Last February, Mr. John blasphemed the Name of Christ when he claimed that Jesus was “a superintelligent gay man,” in an interview with Parade Magazine. In a 2006 interview with the BBC, John said, “I would ban religion completely.” He went on to say, “I think religion has always tried to turn hatred toward gay people. Religion promotes the hatred and spite against gays.”
(To justify their shameful and perverted lusts, not only does a homosexual like Elton John boldly blaspheme the Lord Jesus Christ by characterizing Him as a gay man, but John implies that perversion is a sign of brilliance – JESUS THE SUPER-INTELLIGENT GAY MAN. If you will, homosexuality is not only RIGHT AND DIVINELY ENDORSED AND PRACTICED, but it is SUPER-SMART.)
(According to Webster’s New World Dictionary, blasphemy is the act of reviling, ridiculing, or being disrespectful or irreverent of, by words or conduct, God, religion, a religious doctrine, a religious icon, or anything considered sacred. A crime under the common law if the blasphemy was directed towards Christianity or Christian doctrine and icons and is still a statutory crime, although rarely enforced, in many states! Hear me, no blasphemy offends and infuriates the heart of God like the WORMING OF THE APPLE OF HIS EYE – HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON JESUS CHRIST.)
(Don’t be discouraged! Let the perverts blaspheme, mock, insult, and despise all that they want, but they will never be able to trample the PEARL OF GREAT PRICE into a CLOD OF DIRT, or make the SACRED CONTEMPTIBLE FOREVER. One day soon, the King of Righteousness shall vindicate His righteousness in the blasphemer’s face forever and ever.)
(Christianity is not a religion but rather it is a dynamic relationship with the Living Christ. However, for the sake of dialogue, we understand why Elton and his gay cohorts want RELIGION BANNED! This is happening more and more in America and around the world. It is that damnable religion that surrounds the sinner with ten points of flashing lights that pierce his darkness. He tries in his sin to be a saint before men even though he is a devil before God. Those lights constantly flashing in his face annoy him no end. So what he works for is the banning of the TEN COMMANDMENTS, PRAYER, and the VERY NAME OF GOD AND HIS SON JESUS CHRIST from society. Or as Jesus said in John 3:19 that they love the darkness rather than light for their works are evil.)
Sadly, these are the misguided thoughts and views of someone who has chosen to live his life in complete rebellion to God and the Truth of His Word, so they are not alarming. When you allow sin to control you, of course you want to ban anything that reminds you of your sin. Those like Elton John want to silence those who take a stand for righteousness and declare that it is God, and not man, who calls their CHOICE of sex a sin. They label anyone who agrees with God and refuses to accept their deviant choice of sex as “hateful.” This tactic has proven to be very successful in causing the majority of those in society, especially those who have rejected God and His Truth, to take a bold stand against anyone who has the audacity to preach that God calls this choice a sin and an abomination.
(Here is the rub! The gay community denies that it is a choice, but rather that they were born that way. For you see, so they contend:
“NOTHING CAN BE CONSIDERED A FAULT OR SIN THAT IS NOT
NATURALLY WITHIN MAN’S POWER TO PREVENT.”
The gay premise is this,
“THAT WHERE THERE IS NO CHOICE, THERE CAN BE NO BLAME.”
But the truth is this:
“WHILE PHYSICALITY IS NOT A CHOICE, WHAT YOU AND I DO WITH OUR
PLUMBING IS A CHOICE. YOU CAN SANCTIFY IT ACCORDING TO
GOD’S DESIGN, OR YOU CAN PERVERT IT ACCORDING TO
SATAN’S DESIGN. THE CHOICE IS OURS.”)
III. THE MEDIA AND PERVERSION
My prayer would be that everyone who considers themselves to be a member of the Body of Christ realize that none of this is happening by chance. The over-emphasis on homosexual sex in the media is an attempt to dramatically shift the moral compass of society so that perversion becomes the norm…and it is working.
Television shows with LGBT couples (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) include: Glee, Modern Family, Nurse Jackie, The Office, Shameless, Pretty Little Liars, Outlaw, Rubicon, Trueblood, Mad Men, 90210, Gossip Girl, Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys, The Real L Word, Rupaul’s Drag Race, Grey’s Anatomy, Brothers & Sisters, Bones, House, The Good Wife, and animated shows Archer, Family Guy, American Dad, and The Simpsons.
The overall increase in gay characters “not only reflects the shift in American culture towards greater awareness and understanding of our community, but also a new industry standard that a growing number of creators and networks are adopting,” Jarrett Barrios said in a statement. Barrios is President of the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation or GLAD.
He pointed to such programs as ABC’s “Modern Family” and Fox’s “Glee” as indicators that “mainstream audiences embrace gay characters and want to see well-crafted stories about our lives.”
You also have a major cable news network anchor, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, an openly radical lesbian, who is allowed to use an hour of prime time to promote the radical gay agenda in this nation and try to destroy anyone who opposes it. The fact is, on EVERY major broadcast and cable station, you will never hear anyone denounce this sin, but openly promote, support, and glorify it.
(Bernie Goldberg points out how the media repeatedly misinforms America. In the early 90s, the media tried very hard to paint the picture of AIDS as a disease that anybody could contract from the person next door. In reality, AIDS is pretty much transmitted only by sharing needles and unprotected sex involving a male. MEN GET AIDS FROM MEN AND WOMEN GET AIDS FROM MEN. Practically no one contracts AIDS from women. So why did the media paint such a false picture of the spread of AIDS? Liberal, leftist journalists did not want AIDS to be stereotyped as a homosexual or bisexual disease of the gay male community. They lied to America!)
(THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT THE AMERICAN MEDIA IS CONTROLLED BY HELL. THE BLIND ARE LEADING THE BLIND 7/24. The fact is that today there is a Satanic snare in almost every word we hear, and in every action we see in the modern media. And at the same time, the church is silent. Righteousness should sharpen every preacher’s tongue, and every ruler’s scepter. It would seem that while the audio-visual is being used by the heathen to communicate their degenerate mind and falsehood, the pulpit is concealing the mind of Christ.)
The lie concerning homosexuality as being “normal” has been told long enough and loud enough that enough people have believed it to be the truth. Those who possess the real Truth of God’s Word have said nothing or very little while the lie has been told over and over, year after year, now generation after generation, until it has been ingrained in our culture as a perfectly acceptable choice.
That is why you now have nine states in this country that actually have legalized men marrying men and women marrying women, as well as same-sex couples adopting children. That is why in over 3,000 PUBLIC SCHOOLS you have “gay clubs” that promote the sin of homosexuality to our children. That is why you have a 24-hour Gay cable television network, tons of pro-gay magazines and newspapers, an entire subculture that actually caters specifically to people who choose to sin against God in this way.
It is very disturbing to hear a 14-year-old boy, a 15-year-old girl claiming to be gay, lesbian, or bisexual. The fact is, a 14-year-old boy or a 15-year-old girl are no more gay, lesbian, or bisexual than I am a giraffe! Just because I call myself a giraffe doesn’t make me one. They have simply bought into the “gay lie” that is being promoted by the pro-homosexual community and told loud enough, often enough in our society that these children have this warped idea they are something other than how God created them. GOD DID NOT CREATE MEN TO HAVE SEX WITH MEN, OR WOMEN TO HAVE SEX WITH WOMEN! Those who do are committing unnatural acts in complete rebellion to God.
Pray for Elton John and the man he is involved with. Pray especially for the innocent children they have brought into their sinful world. I have always enjoyed the wonderful gift God has given to Elton John to create music that has been enjoyed by millions worldwide over the past 40 years. That is why it is so sad when I hear one of his great songs, to immediately realize that here is a man God has given such a great gift to, however due to his choice to live in rebellion to that same God, unless he repents and accepts Jesus as His Savior he will die and spend eternity in hell. He won’t go to hell for his choice of deviant sex, but for rejecting Jesus Christ.
Pray for all those who are in this bondage, that they will open their hearts to Christ’s love for them and that they will turn from their sinful lifestyle and find freedom in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
God doesn’t stop loving a person just because they commit the sin of homosexuality. He simply wants them to turn from their sin and follow Him. As those who know the Lord, we also have a responsibility to pray for those who are in this bondage. Only God can change hearts, and for those who are in bondage to the sin of homosexuality we must pray for them to open their hearts and turn from their sin. Until Jesus returns, we will always have those who choose a perverted form of sex with those of their own gender, just like we will always have those who choose to pervert sex by having it outside of the bonds of marriage. While we can never accept their choice since it is clearly against God’s Word, we must pray for them and love them enough to tell them the Truth.
For those reading this who are currently struggling with homosexuality, let me tell you that God has never stopped loving you, and is simply waiting for you to turn from your sin and come back to Him. We serve a God of deliverance from sin, a God of forgiveness, and a God of restoration. Millions have turned from the sin of homosexuality and found complete restoration and fulfillment in living a life according to God’s plan. What He did for someone else, He can do for you! I pray that you hear these words and choose to find freedom from your sin today. It is the TRUTH that will set you free!!! Amen!
