Gay Christians? No Such Thing!

By Dr. Ken Matto

(Gen 13:13 KJV) But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.

One of the newest monikers created by the homosexual movement is that of “Gay Christian.” The term “gay” has been transferred from the noun to the adjective describing a certain type of Christian. It is the belief that a gay man or woman can also be a Christian while maintaining that lifestyle. This appellation was created with the agenda of infiltrating churches and getting Christians to accept sodomy as a normal lifestyle. Unfortunately because of the biblical ignorance of the majority of Christians and the clergy who live in fear of the sodomites and the IRS are beginning to accept this ungodly belief. They may accept it but nowhere in the Bible do we find that sodomy and Christianity are compatible. Christians are to see sodomites as a mission field and not brethren. The word “gay” means “happily excited, merry, bright or lively.” By 1955 the word “gay” had been completely confiscated by the sodomites as a description of their lifestyle. The word “gay” has been around since the fourteenth century. Just like the Roman Catholics have confiscated the word “catholic” and the Jews confiscated the word “holocaust.”

The reason these other groups were able to confiscate those words is because of programming. With the continual use of these words to describe only one thing or event, it quickly becomes planted in people’s minds and then becomes associated with the event in their minds almost immediately. That is how the word “gay” became associated with homosexuality in the minds of everyone that hears that word. What the sodomites are doing now is to try and conquer the church and close it down by means of forcing churches to perform same sex marriages and if the church refuses, then they will be brought to court and fined heavily or have their tax exempt status removed or both and in some cases it could spell the end of a local assembly. (Hey churches, we warned you what would happen if you incorporated and became a vassal corporation of the state but you would not listen!)

So now the attack from the outside is by the anti-Christ courts, the sodomites, and the state, you will now have a destructive element working from within and that is the infiltration by the “gay Christian.” They are now using that term for the purpose of programming the Christian. If the term is used consistently, it will break down their defense against that sin and soon it will become an accepted term with all its deviant lifestyle practices. There was an actual time during the reign of King Josiah when the sodomites had attempted to infiltrate the temple practices with their evilness.

(2 Ki 23:7 KJV) And he brake down the houses of the sodomites, that were by the house of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the grove.

King Josiah had ascended the throne and saw that the sodomites had literally infiltrated the temple with their worship of Asherah. So what he did was to raze the houses of these sodomites and get them away from the temple. The women were making hangings for the grove and was to be used for the worship of Asherah. Asherah was a Phoenician goddess and associated with temple sexual religion such as prostitution. King Josiah got rid of them because corruption of the Jewish temple was already taking place.

This is what the modern sodomite is doing. They are entering the churches and beginning to bring them from worshipping the real God to worshipping false gods, that is, of accepting their nefarious lifestyle. What churches have to do is reject them when they come calling to dialogue or want to speak to the congregation about their lifestyle. They should have absolutely no voice in any church. They need to be removed as King Josiah removed them from the temple.

The problem is that too many churches are fashioning themselves after Lot. (Gen 13:12 KJV) Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom. The churches don’t want to be thought of as old fashioned or unfriendly so instead of rejecting what God rejects in many places in Scripture, they pitch their tent toward Sodom. Eventually Lot wound up as a ruler in Sodom so he did not stick to raising cattle but allowed himself to be carried away by the draw of the city and it cost him the life of his wife and his two son in laws. Not only that, when God finally destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, He also destroyed two other cities with them, Admah and Zeboim. (Deu 29:23 KJV) And that the whole land thereof is brimstone, and salt, and burning, that it is not sown, nor beareth, nor any grass groweth therein, like the overthrow of Sodom, and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim, which the LORD overthrew in his anger, and in his wrath: Four cities were destroyed in a matter of minutes and four is the number of universality. With the rise in the acceptance of sodomy all over this world, it gives us a hint that as the world accepts sodomy, simultaneously God is readying it for destruction.

The main focus of this article is to see if sodomy and Christianity are compatible and to see if the term “gay Christian” is actually applicable to those who claim to be. The first thing which we must look at are definitions.

What is a Christian?
The meaning of the term “Christian” has been widened beyond its true biblical meaning. Today it can mean one who is a member of a church, one who is born in a Christian nation, one who is not of Jewish lineage, or one who is born of Christian parents. These are all basic dictionary meanings. That is like taking the term “meat” which can describe “steak, hot dogs, hamburgers, or venison along with other definitions. It is a generic term. The term “Christian” has also been made into a generic term as we saw but that is not the view we take. The name “Christian” has a specific meaning to it applied to a certain group of people. The meaning is that which is found in the Bible and not the dictionary.

The Greek word is “christianos” and it means ”Christian,” and “a follower of Christ.” It is used three times in the New Testament and all as nouns.

(Acts 11:26 KJV) And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

Antioch was the center of early Christianity having as much as 100,000 Christians in that city alone. It is believed that the dating of the name “Christian” goes back to 44 A.D. It is believed that the name was coined by the early Christians to denote that they were “servants of Christ.” The Bishop of the Syrian church at Antioch, Euodius, had coined the name first.

(Acts 26:28 KJV) Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian.

During Paul’s trial before King Agrippa, Paul made such a powerful case for Christianity that the King was so moved that he almost became a Christian.

(1 Pet 4:16 KJV) Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.

A Christian is never to feel shame if they suffer just for being a Christian. If we suffer as an evildoer, then we deserve what we get but if we suffer for naming the name of Christ, there is no shame in it. In fact receiving persecution at the hand of the unsaved world for being a Christian is a badge of honor for the true Christian. This is because if the world has a case against you, then you must be representing the Kingdom of God well. The world will never oppose a Christian who sits in a bar or never witnesses because they are holding hands with the world. If you are witnessing for Christ without compromise, then the world will come at you with everything it has. If you are going opposite of the world, then you will bring Glory to God because the world system is opposed to God’s system.

It is also important to note that the Greek word “christanos” comes from the word “Christos” which is the actual name of Christ. The name “Christian” is not just a glib name but it represents a group of people who follow Christ and according to Peter, can suffer for Him.

The Greek term for “sodomite” or “homosexual” is the word “arsenokoites.” It comes from two words “arsen” which means “male” and “koite” which means “marriage bed or sexual relations.” The word is used twice in the New Testament.

(1 Cor 6:9 KJV) Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

(1 Tim 1:10 KJV) For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;

In 1 Corinthians 6:9, there is another word of interest and that is “effeminate.” That word “effeminate” comes from the Greek word “malakos.” It refers to a person that is soft and here in 1 Corinthians 6:9 it takes on the meaning of “a passive partner of a homosexual relationship.” When both words, “arsenokoites” and “malakos” are used in the same sentence it is highlighting both the active and passive homosexual partners.

The Reality
When we look at 1 Corinthians 6:9 and 1 Timothy 1:10, we read that homosexuals are among the list of the unrighteous along with other sins. (1 Tim 1:9-10 KJV) Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, {10} For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; It is called being contrary to sound doctrine.

As we continue to look at 1 Corinthians 6, another interesting word shows up in verse 11 and that is “were.” (1 Cor 6:11 KJV) And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. The apostle Paul is stating that some of the Corinthian Christians were partakers of the sins which he just listed and one of those sins was “homosexuality.” It is interesting to note that many homosexuals who claim to be Christians state that they are not active in the lifestyle. Well the word “effeminate” covers that portion of the relationship. With Paul introducing the word “were” he is also declaring a salvation separation between the old lifestyle of homosexuality and the new lifestyle which is Christian. There was a washing that took place which caused them to go from rank sinners to justified believers in Christ. What was that washing? (Titus 3:5 KJV) Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; It was salvation in the Lord Jesus Christ. Their souls were washed clean and it is as if they had never sinned because the sacrifice of Christ gave a complete cleansing along with the removal of all the sin, not just a covering. (Psa 103:12 KJV) As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

Gay Christians?
The question that surfaces demands an answer. If a person can be homosexual and Christian simultaneously, then how can a person be saved and unsaved at the same time? (James 3:11-12 KJV) Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? {12} Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh. James asks some questions along the same line of thought. Can a water fountain send forth both sweet and bitter water? Does the fig tree bear olives? The answer to the two questions are no. No fountain can bring forth salt and fresh water at the same time. You are either a fountain which brings salt water or fresh water. You are either a fig tree or an olive tree. In assessing Christian things and people, the little word “or” is a very important word. It is a conjunction which indicates an alternative between two phrases or two sentences. A man commits perjury or is telling the truth in court. He cannot be telling the truth and perjuring at the same time. A man worships an idol or he worships the true God. He cannot worship an idol and the true God at the same time.

We have previously defined both “Christian” and “homosexual.” A Christian is one who is a follower or adherent of the Lord Jesus Christ by regeneration. A homosexual is one who has an unnatural attraction to the same sex. (Rom 1:26-27 KJV) 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 recompense of their error which was meet.

In 1 Corinthians 6 we saw that homosexuality falls into the category of the unrighteous and twice in two verses we read that they shall not inherit the kingdom of God (vss 9 & 10). A Christian is one who has been washed by regeneration and has already inherited the Kingdom of God. (1 Pet 1:4 KJV) To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, The practicing or non-practicing homosexual is still under the list of unrighteous acts and cannot inherit the Kingdom of God, which means they are unsaved, and one cannot be unsaved and be a truly regenerated Christian.

The Scriptures are to be the authority of the Christian and not the political correctness police who like to redefine terms. The Bible has shown us that an unregenerate homosexual cannot be a Christian because of what is involved in being a Christian. A true Christian must be true follower of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Luke 9:23 KJV) And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. How many homosexuals have taken up the cross of Christ and followed Him? I do not know of any except those who have become truly saved.

Just because the homosexuals have formed churches like the Metropolitan Community Church does not make them Christians or just because they are an accepted member of a main line false church like Episcopal, United Methodist, United Presbyterian Church et al also do not make them Christians. A true Christian is one who has been born again through Christ. If someone claims to have become a Christian and still continues and advocates their sinful lifestyle, then that simply means they have never become saved. (Rom 1:32 KJV) 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. To become saved is to become a Christian. There is no true Christian who has not been regenerated and true regeneration propels a person onward and not backward into the old lifestyle. Christ did not go to the cross to make us sinners but Saints. The next time someone tells you they are a gay Christian, beware because they are nothing but a manipulative liar and Revelation 21:8 gives their future. (Rev 21:8 KJV) But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
