@DEADn Dear brother, it is not God's lack of using His power to deliver homosexuals from their sin, it is either the lack of their willingness to turn from it or the church's lack of proper evangelism. Here is proof: David Upton, a homosexual for 27 years, was completely delivered from homosexuality once he was saved. Here is his testimonial video by illbehonest: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqdQ6_MAH2A It is an amazing example of the power of God. He is ready to completely deliver homosexuals if they are willing to repent.
"However, I don't see where legislation will make any difference. The only thing legislation will do is drive sin underground. If we could simply legislate morality then there would have been no need of a savior. We could all just try real hard."I agree 100% hoohoou, sorry for being unclear. Gods only plan is through the preaching of His Gospel
Folks its not through politics and everyone who is running around telling me that we are going to organize and legislate holiness you dont know your bibles! God raises up anointed fearless prophets and preachers of His word to bring a nation or generation to its knees, or to harden their hearts before judgement comes. David Wilkerson
"I used to think that the church would suffer for the sins of america but I've turned that around and now I say that america will suffer for the sins of the church". -Leonard Ravenhill
@DEADn I can see why you are struggling with this issue, but you must remember God is just and has have the power to totally transform lives. You are right that not everyone who calls out for deliverance will be delivered, but do you not think God will deliver those who truly hate their sin and desire communion with God? And notice I said "truly." It is easy for people to have false motives, whether known or unknown. We sometimes see or hear people suffering because they were rejected from their homes, churches, or friends because they were homosexual and feel pity for them. Is what happened to them wrong? Often times it certainly is wrong. But when they complain or accuse God because He is not delivering them, I believe it may reveal an unrepentant heart. I am not saying they are not willing to repent of homosexuality. They could very well be unrepentant because of another sin.The point I am trying to make is that there is no injustice with God regarding their condition. People have many problems, and God honestly does not owe us anything, but He is very merciful and gracious. The testimonials, the true testimonials, should not be rejected because they are few in number or for any other reason. They testify to a great truth about a great God. Our job as Christians is to point these people to our great God and never doubt His power to save. He Who delivered us from our sins and gave us power to overcome them is perfectly able to do the same for anyone else.
