  1. This is poison.

    • Rob Barkman says:

      It is not John Piper’s thoughts, it is not my thoughts, nor is it any other man’s thoughts. It is the thoughts of God as revealed in His Word, and therefore it is not poison, but simply the truth…

      21) Because that, when they knew God, they glorified [him] not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
      22) Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
      23) And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
      24) Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
      25) Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
      26) For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
      27) And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
      28) And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
      29) Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
      30) Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
      31) Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
      32) Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
      (Romans 1:21-32)

      We all have failed the Lord and committed many heinous sins. Because of this sinful condition of all men, all men must die physically and all face eternal spiritual death. We all need to forsake these sins and turn to Christ, trusting in His work on the cross as the payment necessary to deliver us from the debt of sin that we all owe.

      It is this basic principle that applies to us all, heterosexual and homosexual alike.

      May the Lord open our eyes and allow us to come to an understanding of these truths and the grace to come to Him for salvation.

      • Any God who condemns his creation for being how he made them (genetically) is not an objective source of truth and knowledge, he is a divine dictator, if such as God existed it would be wrong to accept his vulgar commandments as truth.

  2. Steven Paul, a Christ follower... says:

    Thank you for taking on a “hot button” topic! No, it is not the reason nor message of any MAN regarding same sex unions, it is and always has been the word of GOD ALMIGHTY!

    If anyone is willing to admit that we are “God’s creation,” then they should also be willing to accept His will for how His creation should live!

    The world often exemplifies that old adage: “We want a Savior and His love, but not a Master and His laws…”

    It is only our job to share the truth that saves; a faith in Jesus which leads to the gift of grace! It is God who judges all people and all things by HIS good and perfect will…

    Steven

    • Rob Barkman says:

      I agree fully… Thanks for sharing your thoughts Steven. Lord bless you.

      • Steven Paul, a Christ follower... says:

        We who are of like faith must support the message of God even when it isn’t “popular” with the world. It’s our job to spread the seeds…

        Have a great one, Rob.

        Steven

    Thank you for this post and I’m glad John Piper speaks up on an issue that is unpopular today. May we be driven by Scripture
