Should Homosexuals Be Executed?
“What one generation tolerates, the next generation will embrace!” —John Wesley
By David J. Stewart | March 2015 | Updated January 2016
Leviticus 20:13-16, “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness: they shall be burnt with fire, both he and they; that there be no wickedness among you. And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast. And if a woman approach unto any beast, and lie down thereto, thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”
In the news this week, Bob Jones III (chancellor of Bob Jones University) flip-flopped on his Biblical stand in 1980 that homosexuals should be executed. I've been preaching against BJU's allowance of female students wearing pant's since I found out about it a couple years ago. I've also been preaching against Bob Jones III endorsing Mormon sex-pervert leader Mitt Romney for U.S. President in 2012. And worst of all, I've been preaching against BJU's support of the modern corrupt satanic Bible versions. God only wrote One Book, not 125!
BJU is changing for the worse! Now their chancellor is backing off his Biblical position that homosexuality ought to be a punishable crime by government. ...
Jones issued the apology on Saturday but that doesn’t mean he has fully changed his mind about gays, still referring to them as sinners, according to the statement posted by local CBS affiliate WSPA:
I take personal ownership of this inflammatory rhetoric. This reckless statement was made in the heat of a political controversy 35 years ago. It is antithetical to my theology and my 50 years of preaching a redeeming Christ Who came into the world not to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. Upon now reading these long-forgotten words, they seem to me as words belonging to a total stranger—were my name not attached. I cannot erase them, but wish I could, because they do not represent the belief of my heart or the content of my preaching. Neither before, nor since, that event in 1980 have I ever advocated the stoning of sinners.

Respectfully, Bob Jones III is catering to gays. The Bible teaches in 2nd Timothy 3:12 that any Christian who will “live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.” It appears that Christians are backing away from controversial issues, going along to get along, selling out. Increasingly, we are witnessing Bible colleges backing down from taking any controversial stands against anything for God. Instead, they just want to be a run-of-the-mill Bible college making money (a religious business).
Dr. Bob Jones III misapplies the Scriptures, saying that Jesus didn't come to condemn sinners, but this is misrepresenting the Word of God, confusing the issues...
John 3:17, “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”
Jesus didn't have to condemn sinners, because we were already condemned in our sins.
Bob Jones III further stated this week . . .
“The Bible I love, preach, and try to practice, does not present today the stoning of sinners as God’s way.”

When the Holy Bible speaks of “stoning” criminals in the Old Testament, God is teaching capital punishment. If Dr. Jones is correct, then neither should murderers be executed. The Bible places the sin of homosexuality on the same level as murder, adultery, bestiality, witchcraft, idolatry and other horrible crimes. Wicked people look for the worst thing they can find to condemn godly Christians, and then run with it. If they cannot find something awful, then they'll make something up. Bob Jones III only apologized under pressure from a homosexual activist group named BJUnity, which I'll get to more in a moment. Do you think that BJUnity (or other LGBT groups like them) will rest now and go away? Ha, not a chance! It's just the foot in the door!
Again, Jesus didn't have to condemn sinners, because we were already condemned in our sins. When Adam wilfully chose to sin against God, he opened the floodgate of sin into the human race. Thus, we are all sinners by nature and by choice. Romans 5:18, “Therefore as by the offence of one [Adam] judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one [Jesus Christ] the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.” Notice that beautiful phrase, “the free gift.” Eternal life is a free gift! Amen! We were condemned under sin the day we were born into this world. That's why Jesus didn't come to condemn anyone. We're already condemned (which John 3:18 plainly teaches).
But praise be to God, we can escape condemnation through faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ crucified on the cross, buried and risen. Romans 8:1, “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” This Bible verse doesn't mean that to be saved you must walk in the Holy Spirit; but rather, we are saved by believing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and then we walk in the Spirit because we are saved. As you just read, eternal life is a free gift. If a person had to abstain from walking in the sins of the flesh to be saved, that would be salvation by partial faith in Christ plus human effort (works).
Jesus was a preacher of righteousness. Jesus ripped off the faces of the self-righteousness religious leaders. Was that a lack of compassion? Wouldn't it have been better for Jesus to be nice to them and refrain from such harsh statements? Certainly the Lord's offensive words deterred them from ever getting saved, right? That's how many foolish churchgoers think today. It's amazing to me how unsaved wicked people will misquote the Holy Bible to Christians, trying to silence us concerning the awfulness of public and prevalent sin. Please understand that Jesus wasn't condemning the Pharisees by preaching against their sins. When asked by the religious hypocrites if the woman caught in the act of adultery should be stoned as Moses commanded, our Lord lovingly said, John 8:7, “So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.” Thus, we learn that it is never Biblical to condemn anyone for their sins, because we are just as guilty of sin in the sight of a holy God (Romans 2:1).
Yet, it is still Biblical that all sin brings death (Romans 6:23), and certain sins are listed as crimes in the Holy Bible, which are deserving of capital punishment, which a godly government would enforce. Such crimes include murder, bestiality, adultery, homosexuality, witchcraft, idolatry and incest. When the United States of America was founded, homosexuality was thought worthy of capital punishment. Thus, it is not being unChristlike to uphold the Biblical truth that homosexuals should be executed as criminals, just as murders and adulterers. Jesus was not in a position of government authority as a judge, and so as a citizen He showed compassion for His fellow mankind. If Jesus were physically alive on earth today, He would never accept the position of a judge in America, because He would have to enforce ungodly laws that permit murder by abortion, permit same-sex perversion, permit wicked divorces and hordes of other evils.
America's Founding Fathers Imposed Death Penalty On Homosexuals
I have nothing personal against Dr. Bob Jones III or Bob Jones University (BJU), but he is wrong to say that “stoning of sinners” is not God's way. It is actually a poor choice of words, because God never called for stoning sinners; but rather, criminals. Homosexuality was a crime in the United States IN EVERY STATE up until 1962 . . .
In 1779, Thomas Jefferson wrote a law in Virginia which contained a punishment of castration for men who engage in sodomy, however, what was intended by Jefferson as a liberalization of the sodomy laws in Virginia at that time was rejected by the Virginia Legislature, which continued to prescribe death as the maximum penalty for the crime of sodomy in that state.
Prior to 1962, sodomy was a felony in every state, punished by a lengthy term of imprisonment and/or hard labor.
SOURCE: Sodomy laws in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
When Bob Jones University was founded in 1927, they didn't have a problem with punishing homosexuals as vile criminals. The average dumbed-down, television-junkie, American today is woefully ignorant of their Bill of Rights, the U.S. Constitution and the information I just shared with you. In view of all the liberal propaganda supporting LGBT rights nowadays, who would have thought that prior to 1962 all 50 states criminalized homosexuals and punished them as such. Bob Jones III apparently is catering to this weak-kneed generation of compromisers, spineless weasels and sellouts. I think it is a crying shame!
Also, don't forget that it was in 1963 (just a year later) that God and His Word were permanently banned from America's classrooms. It is certainly more than a coincidence that homosexuality was against the law in every state up until the Bible and prayer were removed and banned from our children's daily lives at school. Since the Bible has been removed, homosexuality has flourished since 1963 in our society, to our own demise as a functional nation. Everything's falling apart today!
So I just wanted to point out that according to Bob Jones III's statements this week, our government shouldn't have punished homosexuals in all the states, as they did prior to 1962. And as you just read, founding father Thomas Jefferson wrote a law to have homosexuals castrated (their testicles chopped off!!!), but the higher court insisted on keeping the DEATH PENALTY. Were our nation's founding father's wrong? I'm so sick of hearing Bible colleges praise the wisdom of our founding fathers, but then hypocritically abandon and disassociate themselves from them concerning the crime of homosexuality. Our founding fathers had it right!!! Our country's founding fathers enacted the death penalty for homosexuals!!!
For 184 years of American history, homosexuality was a horrible crime, either punishable by death or decades in prison doing hard labor!!! Our founding fathers established it so. Only in 1962-1963, at the very same time that the Holy Bible and Prayer were being attacked in the U.S. Supreme Court, and would be forever banned from America's classrooms in 1963, did everything change. Since that insane, deathly and awful injustice by the U.S. Supreme Court (all Masonic owned) has the homosexual agenda become a reality in these ungodly times. I seriously doubt if Dr. Bob Jones Sr. never would have agreed with all this apostasy today at BJU.
The Law of God Condemns All Men as Guilty Sinners
The reason why Jesus wasn't sent to condemn sinners is because everyone is already condemned by God's holy law. John 3:18 says that the person who does not believe (trust) upon Jesus Christ is already condemned. John 3:18, “He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” Jesus came to save men, not to condemn them, because they were already condemned.
The reason why Jesus wasn't sent to condemn sinners is because they are already condemned by God's holy law. Romans 3:19, “Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.” The purpose of God's law is to be used as a measuring stick, by which when compared men fall utterly short, thus showing a person their utter guilty condition as a sinner and need for the dear Savior, Jesus Christ (Galatians 3:24-26).
Although I preach against Evangelist Ray Comfort's false teaching of Lordship Salvation, I agree 100% with Ray Comfort on the need for using the law of God to lead a person to the Lord. No one ever got saved who didn't know that he was a sinner! No one! You've got to know that you're a sinner to be saved. You must understand that homosexual activists aren't just seeking acceptance in our churches; but rather, they seek vindication and acceptance as being normal, natural and respectable people. Gays want to be trusted to be adoptee parents. They want to attend churches without hearing that homosexuality is a vile, filthy, wicked, sin! You need to understand the issue. We are in a spiritual war as Christians, and our weapons according to Ephesians 6:12-17 include seven items: truth, the Gospel, faith, salvation, prayer, righteousness and the sword of the Word of God. Homosexuality is unrighteousness, and that is the truth according to God's holy Word!
Not Condemning Sinners Doesn't Mean Not Preaching the Bible's Truth
The fact that Jesus didn't come into the world to condemn sinners doesn't mean that Christians ought to remain silent and not preach the truth of God's Word. If God wanted Isaiah to preach hard and spare not against the sins of God's people, then certainly the Gentiles are not beyond critique for public wickedness. Isaiah 58:1, “Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.” Homosexuals are adopting children in America. THIS IS ALARMING!!! Why are the churches silent? The false notion that preaching against sin will drive people farther away from the Gospel is destroying our churches. To be saved, a man must realize that he is a sinner. By avoiding preaching against sin, churches are drawing people into religion without truth. As the churches become more worldly, so also is the world becoming more churchy!
Bob Jones III calls his former statement “reckless,” but what is reckless about echoing the Biblical teaching that homosexuals ought to be executed? Is it wrong to teach the Bible? Wicked sinners who reject the holy Bible as God's Word will never understand, because they don't want Christ. They are hellbound in their sins and won't come to Christ. When the Bible speaks of having compassion of some to make a difference, it doesn't mean to tolerate their defiant rebellion against God, embrace their homosexual agenda and cater to their anger against God's Word. Jude 1:22, “And of some have compassion, making a difference.” It means that despite our Biblical stand against the awfulness of sin, we show kindness, unconditional love and patience with sinners.
With Dr. Bob Jones III's errant logic, no one should say that pedophiles, murderers and rapists should be executed either. So it comes down to a matter of whether you believe in capital punishment or not, and who qualifies for it. If murderers deserve the death penalty, then so do homosexuals ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE. Don't get mad at me because I believe THE HOLY BIBLE.
The dishonest media news outlet, USA TODAY, slander Pastor Steven Anderson, accusing him of calling for the killing of gays. That is NOT what Brother Anderson said, and I've listened to the sermon in question numerous times. Pastor Anderson simply upholds the Biblical teaching that God calls for the killing of adulterers, witches, murderers and homosexuals. Like it or not, that is what the King James Bible teaches. The deceiving newsmedia deliberately leave GOD out of their accusations. By blaming Pastor Anderson, they attempt to blame him personally, avoiding bringing God into the issue.
My friend, I am truthfully telling you... GOD CALLS FOR THE EXECUTION OF SODOMITES! I am not saying that. God says that. Get mad at God. I have a right to believe the Bible, and I do, completely. I love people, including homosexuals, and I would never encourage anyone to hurt anyone. It is the government's duty to uphold righteousness. Since America's government are the biggest criminals in our hemisphere, they will not do right. Instead, our government protects evildoers. Woe unto America! Woe unto the American people! Woe unto the United States! We have sinned against Heaven!!!
God commands Christians to rebuke false prophets, and that include those false prophets who teach that homosexuality is acceptable, not sinful and should be legalized and normalized in society...
Titus 1:10-13, “For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake. One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith.”
The Lord preached the Gospel to everyone, but he did not hand out pizza at Gay Parades to reach them as some do today. Jesus loved sinners as people, but He never sanctioned sin. Jesus told the woman taken in the act of adultery in John 8:1-11 to “GO, AND SIN NO MORE!” (verse 11). John 7:7, “The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.” If Jesus were here today, He would not condemn homosexuals, but He would preach against sin. John 7:7 says that the world hated Jesus because He testified that their works were evil. The world today still hates Jesus, and Christlike Christians (John 15:19). If you're a Christian, the whole world is waiting for you to fall.
BJUnity is of the Devil
It is sad that Bob Jones III has given-in to BJUnity, whose stated goal is to effectively homosexualize Bob Jones University . . .

Homosexuals are applauding Bob Jones III, because clearly they have made big headway, getting a giant foot in the door. As John Wesley wisely said, “What one generation tolerates, the next generation will embrace!” BJU is tolerating evil counterfeit Bible versions! BJU is tolerating sinful immodest clothing for women! BJU is catering to homosexuals by distancing themselves from the uncompromising Word of God. Satan is behind the modern Bible corrupting movement, who have completely removed the word “sodomite” (which associates the sin of homosexuality with the cursed city of Sodom which God destroyed). Jude 1:7 plainly teaches that God destroyed Sodom with fire and brimstone as an EXAMPLE of what He would do to the wicked in the Lake of Fire!!!
God's Forgiveness Is Available To All Homosexuals If They'll Get Saved
Homosexuality is not a “lifestyle”; but rather, a DEATHSTYLE . . .
“While the average woman lives to be 80 years old, the median age for lesbians is 44 years old.”

Oh, how we need preaching preachers instead of soft-soapin', compromising', back-scratchin' pussy-footin', pink-tea-and-lemonade, wimps in the pulpit. I wouldn't give you a dime for any preacher who doesn't preach against the sin of homosexuality, as well as balance such truth with the unconditional love of God which sent Christ to the cross to pay for the sins of all men. Preaching hatred of sin without the love of God breeds contempt, and preaching love for the sinner without hatred of sin breeds sinful compromise. A balance must be maintained in the pulpit. Yes, lesbianism is a vile, filthy, disgusting, unhealthy, Luciferian agenda and a gross sin in God's holy eyes; yet, there is hope of salvation for anyone, regardless of how deep into the depths of darkness you may have gone.
Certainly, we are ALL woeful sinners. Daniel 9:5, “We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments.” Even the best of Christians sometimes backslide. Proverbs 14:14, “The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways: and a good man shall be satisfied from himself.”
Ah, but there is forgiveness and cleansing of sin through the blood of Jesus Christ. In fact, it is ONLY through the precious name of Jesus that anyone's sins can be forgiven and cleansed away (Acts 4:10-12; John 14:6; John 10:1, 9; 1st John 1:7; Revelation 1:5; 7:14).
The following passage of Scripture applies only to born-again believers, because you don't get saved by being willing and obedient to live right. You don't get born-again by making yourself clean. First God has to make you clean from within, by faith alone in the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. We read in Genesis 15:6 that Abram (later renamed by God to Abraham) “believed in the LORD; and he [God] counted it to him [Abram] for righteousness. This speaks of the imputed righteousness of God (Romans 4:5-6; Philippians 3:9; 2nd Corinthians 5:21; Romans 10:3-4). A man will never be able to make himself clean from without, until God's Holy Spirit first makes him clean from within.
So here, in the following beautiful passage of Scripture from Isaiah 1:16-20, God is pleading with His own to return unto Him . . .
Isaiah 1:16-20, “Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.”
Whereas Jerusalem had once been a city filled with righteous people, like the United States once was; it deteriorated over time into spiritual ruin. Isaiah chapter one eerily resembles America today, before sudden destruction came upon them . . .
Isaiah 1:21 and 26, “How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers. ... And I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellers as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city.”
All of the heathen world's remedies to man's problems center attempt to change a man from without first, trying to change his body and soul (mind, heart and will); but only Biblical Christianity addresses the need for the innermost spirit of man to be made well again. Hebrews 4:12 makes very clear about “the dividing asunder of soul and spirit,” which only the Word of God can pierce and discern. Hebrews 4:12, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Without the Word of God, man is doomed! Without being born-again, man is totally incapable of getting his act together!
The Sin of Catering to Homosexual Activists
Our churches and Bible colleges are selling out to political pressure from wicked LGBT groups, such as “BJUnity,” an activist group attacking BJU for their Biblical stand (or should I say, former Biblical stand). BJUnity's website contains statements from former gay BJU students. The website's stated purpose is:
BJUnity provides a safe harbor—a network of people and resources—for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex and straight affirming people affected by fundamentalist Christianity.
BJUnity affirms and empowers lgbt+ people from Bob Jones University and other Independent Fundamental Baptist organizations.
BJUnity confronts homophobia in compassion, dignity and love, with the objective to promote dialogue and change.
SOURCE: ABOUT | BJUnity
So BJUnity thinks they're going to straighten Bob Jones University out. Right! I don't understand Dr. Bob Jones III's unbiblical compromise, except that he evidently felt pressured to succumb to BJUnity's 2,000 signature LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered) petition against BJU. In the preceding quote, BJUnity plainly state that their goal is to “confront homophobia in compassion, dignity and love.” That's funny, because that is exactly what we are doing as Christians to reach gays, that is, confronting the evil homosexual agenda in compassion, dignity and love. Everyone is lovingly, kindly and compassionately trying to straighten each other out.
LGBT activist groups want to cure us fundamental, Bible-believing, God-fearing, Christians of so-called “homophobia,” but there is nothing to be cured. Homophobia is a slanderous term, a myth, fabricated by homosexuals to stereotype and disparage faithful Christian believers who speak out against the evils and threat of homosexuality. The term “homophobia” implies that there is no legitimate reason to fear the gay agenda which aim to homosexualize children, churches and society. There is a very real threat concerning gays adopting children. THIS IS ALARMING!!! Friend, I'm not homophobic, I fear God!!! Let BJUnity promote all the dialogue and change they want, there's nothing to talk about and there will be no changes to God's Word. Homosexuality is a deplorable lifestyle that offends God. Homosexuality is a sin, and was a crime under Mosaic law, and should still be a crime today. The threat of homosexuality is real. Along with the gay lifestyle coexists every form of sexual immorality imaginable.
What is happening is that homosexuals are BULLYING God-fearing, Bible-believing, Christians to SHUT-UP! and tolerate the homosexual agenda. It was the godly preacher John Wesley who wisely said, “What one generation tolerates, the next generation will embrace!” If the Lord tarries, the future of America's churches and Bible colleges is bleak! Did you know that the pro-homosexual 'University Of Chicago' today was started by a Baptist preacher in 1890? Yes, it is sadly true! My how things change for the worse over time! Everything in the universe tends toward chaos, and that includes human societies.
Shame on any Christian organization that knowing enrolls a known sexual deviate into their school. I'm sure that BJU didn't realize at the time that these enrolling students were unrepentant homosexuals. You know, a lot of pastors and Christians have been getting angry at me and my website ministry for telling the truth about BJU and apostate churches, but little-by-little my preaching is being vindicated, as news like this comes out about America's once fundamental Christian leaders who are dipping-their-sails and selling out. If we as Christians refuse to firmly and uncompromisingly stand for God, then certainly no one else will.
The Devil's crowd, which certainly includes LGBT groups, is not going to back off and stop their attack against Christian fundamentalists (those who preach the Bible as literal), until we completely shut-up and embrace the homosexual agenda. Over my dead body! I'll die before I'll sell-out! Homosexuality is a sin, just like any other sin. I don't mean to be unkind, but right is right and wrong is wrong. I'm a sinner, just like anybody else, and I'm not boastful of that fact, but I'm not going to justify my sins nor anyone else's. God is always right! Everything that God does is right! Everything that the Holy Bible teaches is right!
Please understand that I would never harm a homosexual, nor encourage anyone to harm a homosexual, but every born-again Christian ought to stand-up and proclaim the Biblical truth that homosexuality is a crime in God's eyes punishable by death. No Christian should ever seek to harm anyone, and that includes abortionists and homosexuals. Albeit, our government, which locks people in prison for 200 years for download lewd pictures of children. It is a horrible sin and crime and should be punished; however, what an utter hypocrisy it is to allow sexually deviate homosexuals to adopt children into their possession, while locking a man with no criminal record away for life for merely being a dirty-minded pervert. Which is worse?
Kindly, homosexuals are sexual deviates, because God says that homosexuality is a sin, and they are wilfully indulging in sexual immorality. Do you think that such ungodly homosexuals have enough morality to abstain from sexually molesting the little children legally forced into their care? At a minimum, that child is going to be robbed of a mother or father. Same-sex parenting is unhealthy for a child's proper gender identity. It is insane in fact! A boy without a fatherly image and mentor is going to grow up to be an effeminate sissy, not knowing how to fight, hunt and stand for what is right. A girl growing up without a motherly image and mentor is not going to know how to be a mother and wife. It is an abomination in God's eyes!!!
Entrusting a child to two homosexuals is like trusting a pack of hungry dogs with your chicken dinner. Get mad at me if you want, but many studies have been done evidencing what I am warning people about. Case in point, President Vladimir Putin, highest leader of Russia, has done everything possible to ban homosexuals from adopting children. Communist Russia is Now Safer for Children Than America; President Putin Bans Queer Adoptions. That speaks volumes! Like the insane feminists who justify murdering human beings in the womb, so also do wicked and unreasonable LGBT advocates promote gays adopting and raising children.
I heard Joel Osteen chicken-out on Oprah Winfrey's show, saying that he doesn't preach against homosexuality any more than other sins, saying that homosexuality is no worse than other sins. Yeah, but homosexuals are pushing for laws to be passed to legalize same-sex unions and the right to adopt and raise children (turning them into homosexuals too). Since homosexuality is a popular sin being promoted in society today, we as Christians need to counter that evil by preaching against it and taking a stand. Everywhere we go nowadays homosexual rights are being shoved in our faces. God is not buying into the evil propaganda, and neither am I, and neither should you.
The Threat Of The Homosexual Agenda To Your Freedoms
Many Gays Don't Respect Christians, But They Want Respect
Please understand that if I met you in public and you told me that you were a homosexual, I would not be unkind to you. I would tell you immediately that I am a Christian and I believe the Bible, but I don't condemn anyone, because I am a sinner too. I met a homosexual last year, a younger man. I was playing my guitar in the park after sunset. I'd never seen him before. When he told me he was seeking someone, male or female to have sex with, it creeped me out, but I didn't rebuke him or say anything mean. I told him that I was a Christian and I handed him a Gospel of John (which is the Holy Spirit's Gospel tract). I shared the Gospel with him but he didn't seem interested.
He left and then came back about five minutes later and said, “Hey handsome.” I wasn't sure what to say at first, because I was thinking how to handle the situation, but then quickly realized that I needed to confront him about it, lest he think I was interested, and also because he had blatantly disrespected me, since I had just told him I'm not gay and am a Christian. I also had told him that I don't agree with homosexuality on a Biblical basis. I didn't say, “Get away from me you filthy animal!” I would never treat even the worst sinner like that. We are all sinners in need of the Lord's help.
So I kindly said, “Please don't call me handsome, it offends me.” He immediately became defensive and got upset, claiming that I had misunderstood him. I told him that “men don't call men 'handsome'” (and he had just stated that he was seeking sex with a male or female in the park). Needless to say, I've never been back to that park after sunset, when the LGBT crowd comes out of the sewer to do their evil works. This is the world that we live in today. It is after dark that the neon lights start flashing, the whore houses open, and the transvestites and gays come out to play. It is at nighttime that the most evil is committed.
I firmly told the young man, “Homosexuals have a habit of disrespecting Christians.” I frankly said, “If you want respect, you have to give it. I was nice to you. I did not judge you. I didn't condemn you. Yet you disrespect me.” He was upset and left, but there was no other outcome. If I hadn't rebuked him, he would have continued flirting with me. That is so sick! Sometimes you have to stand as a Christian, because there is no other choice in the matter. I then left before he may have decided to come back. Homosexuals are addicted to sex! That's the truth! Even when you're nice to them, they can't help themselves.
Christians have as much right to speak out against homosexuals as homosexuals do to speak out against Christians! The LGBT crowd want to legally silence Christians, outlawing Bible-preaching as being “hate speech” (and it will eventually happen). There is a spiritual war going on today in America, and the Devil is winning! The Lord ultimately will have the final say, and the battle will be won by the Lord Jesus Christ. Homosexual's days are numbered!!! I say that with Christ's love.
Should Homosexuals Be Killed?
To answer the question of whether homosexuals (improperly called gays) should be executed is not my opinion to give. I have no opinion in the matter, except that I completely believe the Bible, and God in His Holy Word says all sinners are condemned since Adam sinned in the Garden of Eden (Romans 5:12). We were born condemned under the curse of sin. Of course, little children automatically go to Heaven, because they have not yet reached the age of enlightenment. Our text passage of Holy Scripture plainly requires the death penalty for the sins of bestiality, adultery and homosexuality. That is not my opinion, it is God's Word! Don't anyone quote me as saying that I think gays should die, because that is not accurate. You can quote me as saying that, “Brother Stewart agrees with the Holy Bible, which says that God wants homosexuals, murderers and adulterers to be executed by the government!” This is for the good of the land.
The United States banned God and His holy Word from America's classrooms in 1963, and the consequences have been devastating to our nation. Crime is rampant! Drug abuse, alcoholism and addiction are everywhere! Sex-perversion is everywhere, epidemic! Lewdness and immodesty are now typical everywhere in America! We are a wicked country against the Lord God of the Holy Bible! If America's legislatures and courts reject the Holy Bible and choose instead to murder humans in the womb, allow murderers to live, and allow homosexuals to marry and adopt children, then that is on them! Judgment day for all mankind is coming in eternity (Hebrews 9:27).
I am speaking out as a concerned born-again Christian believer!!! The Bible is the most exploited, abused and misinterpreted book in history. Literally, you can justify anything if you're willing to butcher the Bible to do so. God has not changed! Malachi 3:6 declares that God never changes! Hebrews 13:8 teaches that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever, changing not!!! The same God Who pronounced the death penalty in the Old Testament against sexual immorality still feels the same today. And the same God in John 3:16 Who gave His only begotten Son for the world's sins still feels the same. God loves people! God wants everyone to repent of their unbelief and be saved (2nd Peter 3:9). Yet, God hates sin. Hebrews 1:9 says that Jesus hated iniquity, which means that He still does. Psalms 97:10 commands Christian who love the Lord to also hate evil. I hate evil, do you? I am just as much a sinner as the vilest murderer, homosexual or rapist (and so are you my friend). We all need Jesus!
Some people attempt to diminish the awfulness of homosexuality by bringing to attention God's pronouncement of death for Hebrews eating lobster. It is important to understand that the prohibition to eat shellfish was a temporary ceremonial law in the Old Testament, laws which were nailed to the cross (Colossians 2:14-16). Jews can eat shellfish today. It is ok, and not a sin. However, the Bible's prohibition to commit sexual immorality is a permanent moral law, which is still in effect today. Romans 1:24-32 plainly condemns the gross and abnormal sin of homosexuality, as well as other horrible sins. All sin is horrible! Gossip is just as evil as homosexuality. Cursing in the Lord's name is just as wicked as murder! James 2:10 says that to break even one law makes a person guilty of breaking all. That is, committing even one sin is enough to send a person to Hell forever and ever. Certainly, God loves homosexuals, but He hates homosexuality. That is, He loves the sinner, but He hates the sin. That is not to say that God is fond (conditional love - Greek: phileo) of sinners; but rather, He loves (unconditional love - Greek: agape) them.
Please understand that I would never condemn anyone for their personal sins, but I will speak up when wicked people in society are promoting homosexuality to children. It's an entirely different matter. If America were a godly nation, homosexuality would be against the law, and it used to be illegal in all 50 states until 1962. Dr. Bob III said he originally took his stand during a heated national debate over the homosexual agenda in 1980. What has changed? Homosexuality is still a sin. God has not changed. What has changed is America's Bible colleges and churches. Fewer Christians are willing to stand up against the evildoers as Psalms 94:16 commands. Dr. Bob III has backed down from a Biblical position that homosexuality is an offense worthy of capital punishment.
Should sinners be stoned? If that were true, we'd all be stoned to death! Bob Jones III originally upheld the Biblical teaching that homosexuality is a sin so bad in God's eyes that it is punishable by death. The same is true of adultery, murder, bestiality and other sins that ought to be crimes. There are countries still today where drunk drivers are shot on the spot. Homosexuality is still illegal in 78 countries! In many of these countries, homosexuality is still considered a crime punishable by death. There are still decent countries where people are held accountable for their reckless behavior. Americans are reckless. American women and girls walk around naked, dressed like prostitutes, behaving promiscuously, and then demand stricter laws when sexual crimes are committed. You cannot legislate morality, all you can do is create a police state for everyone. Homosexuality is destructive to society, ruining the family unit. The very idea of two romantically involved fathers trying as a married couple to raise a child is insane! That is not just a sin, it is counterproductive and dangerous to children.
The truth is that we are all sinners and we all deserve the death penalty, which is why we all die. Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” The purpose of God's strictness in the Old Testament was to show mankind that He does not tolerate sin. Yet, we see our Lord in John 8:1-11 showing forgiveness and mercy upon the woman taken in the act of adultery. Why didn't those hypocritical Pharisees also bring the man, who was also caught in the act? They condemned her! God has a balance of hatred for sin and love for the sinner. When men stray away from God, they either hate the sinner without mercy, or they love sinners without any hatred for sin. Both extremes are wrong and sinful.
Was John the Baptist wrong for preaching against Herod's and Herodias' adultery? I think not. It cost John his life. The idea that Christians should shut up about the abortion industry, the homosexual agenda, shady advertising, blatant government crimes, Hollywood, worldly Rock and Country music, and the epidemic of immodesty in American society today is a false notion. If Christians don't stand up for what is right, then who will? Respectfully, Bob Jones III is wrong! To preach and uphold the Biblical truth that murderers should be executed, and homosexuals, and idolaters and witches, and adulterers, and other evildoers is the right thing to do. To preach the truth is not condemning sinners. The Bible already condemns all of us. The Gospel is the only solution, the only escape!
My friend, even telling a little white lie (as some people erroneously call it) is enough to send a person to the Lake of Fire forever. God is holy (morally perfect) and cannot allow sinners into Heaven. When a person believes the Gospel, God's righteousness is transferred to them. They are no longer viewed as a sinner concerning eternal life. Instead, God sees Christ's righteousness. This is called imputed righteousness (Romans 4:5-6 - King James Bible). Since we have no righteousness of our own to offer God, we need God's righteousness through faith in Jesus Christ (Romans 10:3-4).
Once a man believes the Gospel, he is clothed in the righteousness of God, despite whatever sins may still be active in his life. You don't have to forsake sinful behavior to be saved. Eternal life is a free gift, which you simply take to have. It's the same as giving a gift to your child. If you require your child to behave for the next year in order to receive a bicycle as a gift, then it is a reward and not a gift. A genuine gift means that you are giving a bicycle to your child, regardless of how they behave, score on school exams or treat you. A gift is a gift. Eternal life is a gift, which you can have simply by receiving it through faith in Christ Jesus.
Yes, the Bible teaches that homosexuals should be executed by the government, but that is also true of many crimes, such as murder and adultery. If it was right for government to execute evildoers in Old Testament times, then it is also right today. God never changes (Malachi 3:6). Again, I am not saying that we should go around telling homosexuals that they should be killed. That is hatred of people. I would never do that, God forbid. Albeit, this website is my pulpit, and I am a preacher as a born-again Christian, who fears God, and I want to help you. If you think I am being unkind or extreme by upholding the Word of God, please know that God is going to pour out His wrath against all Christ-rejecters (who die in their sins) forever and ever in the Lake of Fire (2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9). The Bible says that God, in flaming fire, will take vengeance upon all them that obey not the Gospel.
Americans want to do right, but they want to decide what is right. Abortion is wrong. Homosexuality is wrong. Public nudity is wrong. Drunkenness is wrong. Murder is wrong. Sin is wrong. To be a sinner is human, but to parade and promote sin is demonic! It is illegal in America to commit murder. Likewise, it should be illegal to commit sexual immorality. Many people laugh at what I just said, which is why 55,000,000 human beings are dead from abortion. Who are we humans to murder children that God gives life to in the womb? Life is short. Americans are some of the most irresponsible, selfish and reckless people in history. I'm so sick of hearing about America's pride. We are a wicked, perverted and untoward nation!!! I rejoice to be a born-again Christian. I am on God's side. There is no controversy if you believe the Bible! The Holy Bible sums up the matter in Proverb 29:27, “An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.”
The Wicked Won't Come to Jesus to Receive the Gift of Eternal Life
The reason why 1st Corinthians 6:9-13 teaches that drunkards, fornicators and homosexuals (the effeminate) will not enter into Heaven is explained in John 3:20, that is, because love of sin hinders people from coming to Christ to be saved. John 3:20, “For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.” Jesus said in John 5:40, “And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.” Jesus didn't say that ye cannot come. No, He said, ye will not come! No one who dies in their sins can go to Heaven (John 8:24). You must be born-again (John 3:3).
As Revelation 14:13 teaches, you must die in the Lord. That is, you must be saved by believing the Gospel. People who gossip are just as wicked as those who commit homosexuality. God hates all sin, even prayerlessness, which is akin to atheism. It's important not to portray homosexuals as being worse than other sinners who gossip, play church, hate others and support counterfeit Bible versions. Evangelical pastors who knowingly use corrupt Bible versions are just as wicked as the homosexual community.
The question of who is going to Heaven is not one of turning away from the homosexual lifestyle. Eternal life is a free gift, which you can have just by taking. Anyone who realizes that they are a guilty sinner in the eyes of a holy God for breaking His commandments, and believes that Jesus is the Christ Who died on the cross for their sins, was buried and bodily resurrected three days later is saved. The way to Heaven is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, because of what He did to pay for your sins on the cross, and His resurrection from the dead (1st Corinthians 15:1-4).
If you are a homosexual, you may have the gift of eternal life for free, and it has absolutely nothing to do with whether you choose to turn from your sinful lifestyle. That's why God calls eternal life a “gift” in the Bible (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-10). Whatever changes God would like to make in your life is after the fact, and you can be assured that God will tend to that once you are His child (Hebrews 12:6-8). God loves you friend, and so do I with Christ's love!
God doesn't want to see anyone put to death. The purpose of capital punishment is to preserve the integrity of a land. Ecclesiastes 8:11, “Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.” This is why the United States is a cesspool of iniquity today, an immoral hellhole, and it's only going to get much worse! A nation cannot indulge in sexual immorality, recklessly throw away their babies by abortion, flaunt their wickedness against the God of Heaven, and expect good things to happen. The person who rejects God's Word is headed for a bridge that is out! The insanity will continue. The wickedness with increase exponentially. Sodom and Gomorrah will seem like nice places to live compared to what's coming to America if the Lord Jesus Christ tarries His return.
America, Beautiful No More!
America is sick today, in so many ways. We've banned God and His Holy Word from our nation's classrooms since 1963. The evil women's liberation, drug-crazed hippie movement and ungodly Playboy philosophy of the 1960's led consequently to the abortion industry of the 1970's and beyond. This gross sexual immorality consequently led to the homosexual movement, which is quickly overtaking America decades later. Pedophilia is now being promoted everywhere. 12-Year-Old Maddie From 'Dance Moms' stars with Shia LaBeouf In Pedophile Video Made by Lesbian. The moral landmark is continually being moved by the Devil in Hollywood, preparing the world to receive “the man of sin,” the Antichrist (2nd Thessalonians 2:3).
Hebrews 3:13, “But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.” This Scripture means that the more sin is tolerated, the less awful it becomes, and so the sin spreads and gets much worse. Hollywood and the hellivision have been desensitizing Americans for the past 75 years. In 1946, only 6,000 American households owned televisions, but by 1952 that numbered skyrocketed to 22,000,000 TV sets!!! What brutal Communism failed to achieve, the Devil has accomplished subtly through use of the television to deceive, control and conquer the masses.
The popular 5-year Star Trek series of the late 1960's and early 1970's was one of the most ungodly programs ever made. William Shatner, who starred as Captain Kirk, locked lips with over 100 different women, portrayed by Hollywood as a real ladies man. Hundreds of whores were hired as actors in the Star Trek series, all wearing miniskirts up to their bellybutton. The show promoted the immodest, adulterous, feminist, Godless, Playboy philosophy of the 1960's that has totally ruined America's families. Sadly, Gene Roddenberry, the shows creator, went to Hell, openly blaspheming the God of the Bible. Also, Leonard Nimoy, who recently died at age 83 from lung disease contracted decades earlier from cigarette smoking, died and went to Hell in his sins, having trusted in the female goddess Shekhina instead of the Lord Jesus Christ Who died on the cross for his sins. It breaks my heart.
God Loves You So Much, And So Do I
Are you a born-again Christian my friend? I try to live right because I AM saved, not to BE saved. My salvation is based solely upon God's righteousness, through faith in Christ's sacrifice on the cross as the Lamb of God for my sins. I am just as much a sinner as any homosexual, and so are you whoever you may be. We are all horrible hell-deserving sinners in need of salvation. That salvation is found in Jesus Christ. I am TRUSTING to be saved, not TRYING to be saved. Amen! Philippians 3:9, “And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith.” There is hope for homosexuals. Jesus will never turn anyone away who comes to Him for salvation, regardless of the condition you are in. You may come to Jesus, “JUST AS I AM,” as the famous hymn goes.
My friend, please don't go to Hell. You can have eternal life for free. It's a gift from God. You don't have to become religious. You don't have to go to church. You don't have to forsake the sin of homosexuality. But you say, “Wait a minute Buster, you mean a person can continue committing homosexuality and still be saved?” Yes, that is absolutely correct. You don't get saved by doing good works nor stopping bad works. These are all DEAD WORKS (Hebrews 6:1 - King James Bible). The truth is that even the best born-again Christians still commit sin regularly, in deed and in thought. Even failing to pray as we ought for others is a sin (1st Samuel 12:23). We are all wicked sinners. We don't have God's permission to sin, but we still choose to sin sometimes, because we are sinners by nature and by choice. Certainly, God's Holy Spirit that comes to indwell the body of the new believer will convict them over existing sins and expect some changes, but this has absolutely nothing to do with receiving the free gift of eternal life through faith in Christ Jesus. SONSHIP comes first, and then DISCIPLESHIP.
The question is, do you have GOD'S RIGHTEOUSNESS? That is the truth that nearly every religious and non-religious person alike fail to grasp. We don't go to Heaven because of our own goodness, human effort or self-righteousness; but rather, because of what Jesus Christ did on the cross to pay our debt of sin. Jesus died for our sins, He was buried, and He miraculously raised-up bodily after three days. This is the Gospel (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). Believe oh sinner and you are saved!
I love you all in the Lord Jesus Christ, whoever you may be, and I would never want to see a hair on your head harmed. I am not attempting to express hatred toward gays or any sinners in this article. I simply wanted to uphold the Biblical truth that homosexuality is such a horrible sin that God mandated the death penalty in the Old Testament, to establish a precedent for all time how He feels about the matter.
love God who doesn't love sinners!”
(a quote by Dr. Jack Hyles classic MP3 sermon, “The Happiest Man” (happiest is the man who will not impute sin to others!)

“God never taught anybody how to quit!”

Oh how America needs preaching and praying preachers! Preaching without prayer is dead, and prayer without preaching is shallow Christianity!!!
Acts 5:42, “And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.”
If you believe what the Bible teaches, attend a church that teaches the Bible!
