CLARITY – 5-22-18 Confusing Questions


A Biblical Response to Current Events – 5-22-18


Confusing Questions


What’s Happening:  “The Pope’s recent reported remarks may give the homosexual community great encouragement, but it flies in the face of tradition. Juan Carlos Cruz, himself an alleged object of much child sex abuse in the recent brouhaha that resulted in the mass and unanimous resignation of every Bishop in Chile, said Pope Francis told him, ‘God made you like that and loves you like that’ ( The LGBTQ community rejoiced.”


Knee-Jerk Response:  “I’m familiar with LGBT (Lesbians, Bi-sexuals, Gays and Transgenders), but what is this ‘Q’?”


Biblical Response:  “‘Q’ stands for ‘Questioning’. It has been added to the list of initials because those in the homosexual community believe many go through a period when they ‘question’ their sexual identity. Of course, mandatory sex education that depicts to grade-schoolers in California (recently passed controversial legislation) LGBT’s as normative behavior might be the source of ‘Q’s. That the Pope made such remarks, though neither confirmed nor denied by the Vatican, is not the direction of Catholic catechism. ”


“Christians? I’m not saying there aren’t real Christians in the Catholic faith, but the Pope’s alleged remarks, if true, do not bear out the testimony of Scripture (as the following will indicate: Lev. 18:22; Lev. 20:13; 1 Cor. 6:9; 1 Tim. 1:10…to name a few that condemn this lifestyle). Still, similar to the difference between ‘love’ and ‘like’, (there are many things my children do that I don’t like, but I still love them), I am to hate the sin and love the sinner (‘The good hate the badness of the wicked. The wicked hate the goodness of the good.’ Prov. 29:27 LB).”


”Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to demonstrate that homosexuality is like all sin…in need of redemption; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”   © Alan E.Sargent
