Really? Really? (REALLY!)

by

**Finally got the video from the source. Thank you for bearing with me.**

Thanks to Wretched Radio for tipping me off to this dandy little Youtube vid.  In it you see… well… blasphemy of Biblical proportions, Scripture twisting that would make Word Faith preachers proud, and celebs further encouraging Christians NOT to give thier money to Hollywood. this as Biblically as possible.

“Prop 8 – The Musical” starring Jack Black, John C. Reilly, and many more… by Jack Black

0:33 — How is hate defined? Well, I looked at the definition of “hate” and can honestly say that’s not what I (nor 100% of true Christians) feel toward the LGBTQ community. (Though I would like a vowel in the acronym to make it pronouncable.) Let me put it this way: Suppose my friend went to take an asprin for a headache and I saw that what he was about to swallow was really arsenic. Enough to kil him. Before I can say anything he has it in his mouth and is ready to swallow. I shout, “DON”T SWALLOW THAT!” With his mouth filled with water, pill starting to disolve he manages to say, “Why?”  I say, “That’s enough poison to kill you!” He brushes it off and prepares to swallow. I punch him in the gut hard enough to make him spew out the pill. Is that hate? For him, no. For the poison, you betcha! What us Christians are trying to do is the same thing. Homosexual behavior puts one at a statistically higher risk for AIDS. Last I checked, that’s a fatal disease. I don’t want ANYONE to have to die of AIDS. If not wanting someone to engage in risky behavior is hate, I’d like to know what love means.

0:45 — Uh… First off I don’t think sex should be taught in schools. It seems the human race procreated just fine without it. Teach anatomy. Teach what does what. Don’t teach what goes where.

0:59 — Make our clothes and fix our hair? Oh please…. Again. Define “love.”  The English language is quite vague on the term “love.” I love my friends, I love chocolate, I love puppies, I love God, and if I were married I’d love my wife. All the same word, all different meanings, sometimes, drastically so. If I loved my wife the same way I love puppies I would rightly be put in jail! If I love my friends the same way I love chocolate I wouldn’t have very good relationships (“Nah… don’t feel like your friendship right now. Too heavy a meal.”) And yes, some kinds of love ARE sinfull. The love that causes someone to have… uh… unnatrual relations… with an animal is a sin! Define that love term for me and we’ll talk.

1:05 — Thanks for the blasphemy!

1:15-1:34 — Okay… no. As if the persistent ad hominem and now blasphemy weren’t enough there has to be Scripture twisting. Here’s the answer to that little granny knot: You find that prohibition in the book of Leviticus (you got that part right, I’ll give credit where it is due.) But WHY? Simple, to separate Israel as a holy nation. That provision for “clean” and “unclean” animals is abolished in Acts 10:9-28 as the wall between Jew and Gentile is no longer applicable in defining who God’s people are.

1:35-1:38 — Stone your wife, sell your daughter into slavery…  Deuteronomy 22:13-30 and Exodus 21:7-11respectively. For the first one, you can clearly see that these are all instances of fornication or adultery. God set up what marriage is supposed to be as a reflection of what Christ and His people are. He takes it VERY seriously. That is why you see Christians so “up tight” about this marriage thing. Stop with this silliness, sit down, and listen to us, perhaps that will be clear. Secondly, we in the modern West have the Amistad idea of slavery.  Slavery had very strict rules in the Old Testament. Go read them. Understand the times and the culture. John MacArthur says in his commentary, “The law of the slave guaranteedfreedom after a specified period of six years unless the slave himself elected permanent servitude, but this would be service in a context not of abuse but of love (21:5). Any permanent, involuntary servitude for a Hebrew slave to a Hebrew master was obviously undesirable for Israelite society and was unknown in Israel (cf. Lev. 25:39-55). Provision was also made to ensure the proper treatment of female slaves, who could not deliberately be left destitute by wrongful action on the part of their master.” (MacArthur Bible Commentary, pg 116.) ESV Study Bible has this in the notes, “If a poor famiy could not afford the vosts of a normal wedding, the father might ‘sell’ his daughter to a rich man as his ‘slave,’ i.e., as a secondary wife like Zilpah and Bilhah (Gen. 29:24,29). AS wives from poor families, they could face exploitation–which these laws aim to prevent.” (ESV Study Bible study notes, pg. 178)

1:43 — Kinda playing “Pick and Choose” yourself aren’t ya. What about Romans 1:16-32? Not gonna mention that one. Or Revelation 21:5-8? (Note that liars are in there too. Have you ever told a lie?)

1:46 — Again, define love and hate! If the Bible, the inspired, inerrant, infallable word of God, says that all liars, sexually immoral, idolaters, etc. will go to Hell forever and Christians sit back and do nothing then how is THAT loving? We are telling you bad news first, you deserve hell. Good news second…. Do you want to hear it?

1:52 — Not getting into tbat. I want to keep this BIBLICAL not POLITICAL.

2:15 — Really? Really? You think a Christian cares that much about profit from someone’s sin?

2:39 — Fools? Fools? Psalm 14:1 tells us what a fool is. So does Psalm 53:1! Psalm 107:17, Proverbs 10:8, 10:18,  and 10:23Proverbs 18:2 would fit for this video for sure!

2:55 — Actually, living within our means and not using credit cards as magical buying devices will save the economy. And, frankly, I don’t care so much about the economy being saved as I do about YOU being saved my LGBTQ friend.

3:06 — “At the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:10

Will your knee bend willingly or will it have to be broken? If I still have your attention…

If you have told a lie, you deserve hell.
If you have ever stolen something, regardless of value, you deserve hell.
If you have ever talked back to your parents, you deserve hell.
If you have ever hated someone (the Bible says hatred is murder of the heart,), you deserve hell.

Doing any of those things, even once and you deserve hell. It is a sin against an infinite, uncreated, amazingly holy God.

Justice demands we go to hell forever. But God is also merciful. God sent Jesus Christ to die on a cross and thereby suffer the wrath and punishment that belongs to those who would sin against Him. Before He died, Jesus said that salvaiton is to repent (turn from sins, and hate them) and to have faith in the saving work of Christ (trust it like you trust a parachute as you jump out of a plane).

I know you know this verse: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” That’s John 3:16. But read on to verses 17 and 18, my friend, “For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.”

Please repent and have faith. Spit out that poison pill of sin. Please!
