A recent wave of writings and audios has come with a force from folks who claim to be both at the same time homosexuals and Christians. Or, to use their vernacular, "Gay-Christians." They claim to be celibate gay-Christians, in that they don't act out on their sinful desires. Writings also come from those who may be tolerant of such perspectives.

Can this really be the case? Can one really be a 'Gay-Christian'?  We have worked hard to compile a series of podcasts on this topic to equip believers with the Truth of God's authoritative Word.

[We quickly realize that homosexuality, SSA, and the like is not the only or the ultimate or the unforgivable sin. The Word of God places the sin of homosexuality alongside of many other sins that condemn sinners. We are all guilty. This isn't a matter of pointing fingers at *those* people caught up in this. Rather, the point is to speak Truth to believers and to equip them with God's Word so that they can respond biblically, accurately, and compellingly to those who make such professions regarding this particular issue.]

B/c of Their Unholiness

3. Pastors and professors who condone [legitimize] LGBT+ are deceived  PODCAST
Summary:
In this podcast, Pastor Geoff  shows that pastors and academic professors who condone the LGBT+ movement are deceived.

We must stand courageously and speak biblically as we stand upon the sufficient, clear, and authoritative Word of God (=the Bible):

Men in the pulpits must teach TRUTH to God’s people.
Professors in the instructions must teach SCRIPTURE to Believers.
Christians in the pews must understand the NATURE of sin.
Christians in the pews must believe the POWER of regeneration.
Christians in the pews must warn with urgency of homosexuality (SSA)
Christians in the pews must speak with courage in these times.
Christians in the pews must expect the hatred of the world.

4. Why we must preach the truth regarding the eternal danger of homosexuality and those who profess to be 'gay-Christians'  |  PODCAST
Summary:
Here is why we must preach what God says regarding those who engage in ongoing sin. We must preach the eternal danger of the sins that men refuse to repent of -- including the sins of homosexuality, same-sex attraction, and those who profess to be 'gay-Christians':

We must preach the truth for the following reasons...

Because GOD HAS SPOKEN
Because HELL IS HOT
Because SALVATION IS AVAILABLE
Because REGENERATION IS SUPERNATURAL
Because SINNERS NEED TRUTH
Because HOLINESS IS NECESSARY
Because DECEPTION IS RAMPANT
Because PLEASING GOD IS PRIORITY


5.  Elders and pastors are disqualified from pastoral ministry if they affirm homosexuality and being a so-called 'Gay-Christian'  |  PODCAST
Summary:
This podcast looks at Titus 1.8 — elders are qualified if they are “loving what is good”

What is good?  GOD is the highest good
What is good? TRUTH is the revelation of good
What is good? CHRIST is the quintessential good
What is good? the LOVE OF CHRIST and the GOSPEL OF CHRIST is good
What is good?  TO HATE EVIL and PURSUE RIGHTEOUSNESS IS GOOD.


6. What would God say to a 'gay-Christian'?  PODCAST

Summary:
What Would God Say to a Person Who Thinks He’s a “Gay-Christian” — One Who Can Profess the Name of Christ and Continue Living as a Celibate Homosexual?  From God's Word, we can find at least 5 exhortations God would give to one who professes to be a Gay-Christian (that we can glean from God's Word):

REPENT NOW!
UNDERSTAND SCRIPTURE!
STOP DECEIVING (yourself & the world w/ your double life)
BE HOLY!
UNDERSTAND REGENERATION!
