OPEN LETTER TO HOMOPHOBES - THE TRUTH


Open Letter to Homophobes.

Far too many people play God and dehumanize Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Trans, and Intersex people throughout the world, in every culture, race, background etc.

The discrimination is so bad that it leaves many LGBTI people wondering and asking questions. This letter to Homophobes is being reproduced to answer many questions people have asked me.

Both heterosexuals and homosexual people, People of all faith have claimed that homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22 and cannot be condoned under any circumstance.

The following is an open letter to all Homophobes...(I also pray and hope that gay people will learn that they are children of the living God.)

Dear Homophobes,

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal from your bigoted rhetoric, and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, they are clobbered with Leviticus 18:22 which clearly state it to be an abomination...End of debate.

I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other elements of God's Laws and how to follow them.

1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighbouring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?

2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness - Lev.15: 19-24. The problem is how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

4. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odour for the Lord - Lev.1:9. The problems are my neighbours. They claim the odour is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

5. I have a neighbour who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2. Clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?

6. A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination - Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this? Are there 'degrees' of abomination?

7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle-room here?

8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?

9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

10. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev.19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? Lev.24:10-16. Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)

I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy considerable expertise in such matters, so I am confident you can help.

Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.

The Other Child of the living God.

Hello Mr. Jide Macaulay,
Greetings in the Exalted Name of Jesus, the Christ of God! I am living and writing from Alberta –Canada. On my way to an appointment early this morning, your interview session came up as I tuned into BBC just to keep abreast with events in our world. With my short time on earth being so precious to the Lord, I usually don’t give audience to certain topics of discussion in public media. But I did today. Indeed space would not permit a highlight and comments on every point in your interview. I would therefore offer a brief insight, as God the Creator would permit me!

a)Make no mistake; God loves you and indeed all mankind with a love that surpasses human knowledge (Eph. 3:19). This is the latent player in the episode of His incarnation more than 2000 years ago for the sake of our salvation from all sins.

b)God created no man gay nor any woman lesbian. Would one ever imagine the embarrassment as well as the barrage of legal standoff between an automaker and their customers if it were discovered that a Toyota Land Cruiser that was purchased had, in fact, a Ford Engine? Isn’t it a high time that the world knew that to accuse God (the human maker) of a fraud of this unfathomable proportion (hiding a woman’s value system in a man and vice versa) is a disservice and an insult that would eventually require an account and judgment? Or can we accuse Him of inconsistency and/or oversight? His nature and attribute will NOT allow this Grand fountain of wisdom to contradict Himself! Another force other than God’s must be at work. Therefore “Seek ye the Lord while he may be found. Call ye upon Him while He is near … for my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither my ways your ways!” (Isaiah 55:6 - 9).

c)In your interview you claimed that the Bible condemned only “the bad type of homosexuality” but “a loving type” is acceptable to God. Well, the source of such a claim was not really mentioned in your interview. But the eternal Word of God is unequivocal in Rom. 1: 25 –28 concerning God’s position on homosexuality. If anyone does otherwise it is a case of wilful disobedience as opposed to that of textual misunderstanding. By the way, in that same Chapter of Romans just the next verse to the above (i.e. 29), God equally condemns fornication, murder, wickedness …etc, how acceptable to God would a “good fornication” be? How about the public’s view on a “good murder”? Or why don’t we try to convince the public or a court of law that God made us “good wicked people” if we are prosecuted for arson? Can we see that hypocrisy and eternal regret will haunt anyone who eill try to negate any part of God’s Word?

Mr. Macaulay, I’m speaking from a heart with God’s love and grace; the homosexual urge that you’re feeling within you only goes to validate the claim of God’s word that all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God; that we all need a Saviour! Jesus Christ is His name. “This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. (1 Timothy 1: 15). Jesus can and is willing to save to the uttermost even the chief of sinners. But if we refuse His offer till the end of life, it will be too late. Eternal torment and regret will be the lots of all fornicators, adulterers, thieves, liars, homosexuals, murderers …etc. God is no respecter of persons or Church organizations. God’s Word says, “The soul that sinneth it shall die”. Call on Christ today and He will rescue, deliver and save you eternally! Don't wait any longer. This is the voice of the Spirit of God to you and others of your like belief today!
Thank you,
Godwin.

You guys are liars, and blasphemers, and would definitely be punished by God, except you repent. Jesus talked of eunuchs, and not gays...
