I read your post about my good friend Bernie Lutchman. You have no right to call out someone by name as you have done. Who gives you the authority to condemn Is it not Christ who Justifies? Is it not He to whom we must all give account? Bernie has done nothing but clearly exegete the Scripture in a loving Godly manner. Sin is sin and it must be exposed and called out as such. No one who saw a person playing with a stick of dynamite would turn away to let them die from its blast. Bernie is simply warning that those who continually practice such sin, as well as others, can say conclusively they have a part in the Kingdom of God. Godly sorrow produces repentance. You have yet to agree with God on the matter. Therefore there is no sorrow in your heart for the wickedness you pursue. Your lack of love is manifested by your post of hate.
You thrive on lies and twisting the Scripture. To even suggest that Bernie was saying the things he wrote about concerning a sin you practice is from hate is so wrong. I know that Bernie is a man of God who walks in love with a humble and pure heart. If a Homosexual stood to say they needed help he would be the first one there to their side. It is not he who twists the Scripture but it is you. In your darkened heart you live to try and justify your sin so you must come out of the closet where your dark evil sin is practiced in the most sickest of ways. You invited this rebuke by ferociously and publically attacking my friend and brother in Christ. You owe him the most sincerest of apologies.
Your exegesis of the Scripture is not exegesis but eisegesis. Please read the following to gain the correct understanding of Scripture on the matters of Genesis and Adam who God created. All of the living on earth are descendants of Adam and his wife Eve. She is called the mother of all the living. Before the fall of man and before the curse mankind was perfect including his/her genes. They had many children. As the Bible declares. Your blasphemy in saying Eve slept with her sons are words you will be accountable for unless you repent. http://www.answersingenesis.
Now to Nero. Yes he was sick as were many in the Roman empire. His actions were indicative of a very depraved heart. The beloved Paul calls the act of Homosexuality a sin worthy of death as is all sin unless repented of before God. The fact that he condemns the Roman empires practice of it by definition binds all who practice the despicable as sinners. By your own words you condemn your own sin for you agree it was sinful for Nero. Romans is not the only place Paul calls the sin out. Try 1 Cor. 6:9 and 1 Tim.1:10.
2Tim. 4:3-4 sums up those who seek to justify their sin in these last day, 3 For a time will be when they will not endure sound doctrine, but they will heap up teachers to themselves according to their own lusts, tickling the ear. 4 And they will turn away [their] ears from the truth and will be turned to myths.
I exhort you to lay on your face before God and cry out to Him for deliverance from the wickedness that so controls you. You are bringing many down with you and on judgment day you will be accountable for not only yourself but for all those you have led astray. God will hear a sincere heart. He knows if you truly desire to get right with Him. If you persist in waving your fist in His face the ceiling will be as iron and He will not listen. For your sake and the sake of those you are leading astray, confess your weakness to Him. Jesus said that those who live in darkness will not come to the light lest their deeds be exposed. It is easy to say I am right and my partner is right because you do not have to have faith. But to say I have sinned and I must separate from this wickedness demands that you agree with God as LORD and that you exhibit faith in him. Yes, He is a God of love, but pure love demands justice. And it is His ability to be purely Just that condemns all that is unholy before Him
I will pray for your salvation.
