In a speech to the Presbyterian Church (USA) on June 30, Gene Robinson, the first openly homosexual bishop of the Episcopal Church, spoke the praises of LGBT people in the PCUSA for their fight to make their sexual sins acceptable. He complimented them for stirring up “enormous confusion” and “holy chaos” in the denomination over sexuality and their push in favor of the acceptance of sodomitic practices.
Robinson then proceeded to make claims such as, “Let’s take the Bible back from those who have taken it hostage,” and “The sin we are fighting in this movement is the notion that it is better to be heterosexual than it is to be homosexual.” He also quoted several scriptures and twisted them to mean God has no problem with sexual sins like sodomy.
Basically, Robinson in his speech revealed who he is really rooting for in the church–Satan. The very first person to ever cause confusion and stir up chaos was Lucifer in his rebellion against God and God’s holy angels in heaven. Satan then moved on to cause confusion in the minds of Adam and Eve that led them to be divided from God. God is not the author of confusion [1 Corinthians 14:33], and confusion only appears when there is a lack of faith in God and in what God says. Since God makes it clear he is against sexual sin like homosexuality, people like Robinson who call for chaos and confusion in the church have shown who their true spiritual father is.
God commanded via Paul, “Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience,” [Ephesians 5:6]. That’s exactly what Robinson and those like him do. They use vain words to deceive. The things that bring the wrath of God that Paul was talking about are mentioned in the previous verses. Among them is whoremongering, a term used for men who play the whore with other men.
In the previous chapter of Ephesians, Paul points out that when we understand only the Lord Jesus is head of the church and he works in every member of the church to supply everything the church needs so it can increase and be edified in godly things [Ephesians 4:15-16], then we will not be like other Gentiles, who do the following:
- They walk in the vanity of their mind. [Eph. 4:17]
- They have their understanding darkened. [Eph. 4:18]
- They are alienated from the life of God by their ignorance and blindness of their heart. [v. 18]
- They give themselves over to lasciviousness (lust without boundaries), all types of uncleanness and greed. [v. 19]
Robinson and those like him are guilty of such things. His idea that it’s a sin to think heterosexuality is better than homosexuality proves he is of the devil since God is the one who created the notion that humans should be heterosexual, not homosexual in Genesis 2. Those in the church promoting such ungodly ideas are like the Jezebel of the church at Thyatira who taught people to fornicate.
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: [Romans 1]
9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate [male prostitute], nor abusers of themselves with mankind [a man who lies with other men], 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. [1 Corinthians 6]
