Veteran Scripture Scholar Debunks Effort to Twist the Bible Into Supporting LGBT Political Agenda

 

Dr. Brown writes in OneNewsNow:

Ross Murray's article on CNN's Religion Blog, entitled "My Take: Why Christians are embracing their LGBT neighbors," is the most recent in a steady stream of editorials and articles on liberal news outlets devoted to promoting a common theme: The Bible really doesn't speak against homosexual practice and enlightened Christians are recognizing this in ever increasing numbers.

Although Murray repeats much of the standard rhetoric, he does distinguish himself by offering one of the more egregious applications of a scriptural passage I have seen in nearly 40 years of studying and teaching the Scriptures.

... And what is it that drives the views of the "vocal anti-gay activists" who by implication are not "good Christians"? It is "fear" and "lies," since, in the logic of GLAAD, only fear and lies could cause a Bible-believing Christian to think that God is not giddy about homosexual practice. In contrast, LGBT Christians "build up love and break down fear."

As for the "good [straight] Christians," they are embracing LGBT people and their practices because they realize that "if God made them, then [they are] called to love and support them."

But didn't God make everyone? Didn't he make the "vocal anti-gay activists" too? Then why does Murray disparage them? Why doesn't he feel "called to love and support them"? And aren't there others whom "God made" whose lifestyles or convictions Murray rejects?
