A sign of the times according to the Apostle Paul, will be an abandonment of truth for the sake of personal fulfillment: “In the last days perilous times shall come. For men will be lovers of their own selves.” (2 Timothy 3:1-2)
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears and they shall turn away their ears from the truth.” (2 Timothy 4:3-4)
Self over truth and men over God; can a Christian be so easily deceived? Evidently so, because Paul referred to the Galatian church as having been “bewitched” (Galatians 3:1) and Jesus warned that a prominent sign of the days before His coming would be an increase in deception (Matthew 24:4). Therefore, to confront pro-gay theology, is to confront a deceptive element of our time.
Argument: Jesus said, “Come unto me, all ye that are weary and heavy laden,” not just “Come unto me, all ye that are heterosexual.” The gospel is for everyone, including gays.
Response: True, Christ’s invitation is to everyone. Most Christians who believe homosexuality is unnatural do not believe that homosexuals cannot be saved – only that they, like all of us are called to repent of all aspects of life that are contrary to God’s standards. We are all called to repent just as surely as we are all called to salvation. To say that no change in behavior or heart is necessary after conversion is to deny the very need for conversion in the first place.
