If We’re All Created In God’s Image, Why Must Gays Change? (Part 2)

DSCF0641

 

Believers love to say, “We walk by faith and not by sight,” but in all honesty, we dislike walking by faith. We would rather view everything as black or white choices, as in drop a ball ten times off the table and watch it hit the floor ten times. Do it a hundred or a thousand times and the results will always be the same. The ball hits the floor. This is called empirical science because we easily observe it with our eyes.

Now, let’s check Jesus’ scientific methods for His healing miracles:

Jesus healed the blind by just speaking to a blind person, by touching a blind person’s eyes with His hands, by spitting on the eyes, and by putting a spit and mud mixture on a blind person’s eyes and then telling him to wash himself in a certain pool almost a mile away.

Jesus healed the deaf, mute, and one with a speaking impediment by sticking His fingers in a man’s ears and spitting on the tongue, and then commanding the man to be healed and by casting a demon out of a young boy.

Jesus said that we believers would do His works and greater ones, but to date, what’s our success rate? Not so good, right?

You would think by now we would have learned that pouring olive oil on a sick person’s forehead and praying a prayer of faith doesn’t always work. But yet, we keep doing it over and over and over again with very few – if any – successful results. Why?

We would rather fasten ourselves to a scriptural practice – sort of a scientific method – of praying for the sick, rather than learning how to walk in the Spirit by faith and doing the works of Jesus.

Guilty! Yes, we’re all guilty of doing this.

And then we wonder why gays mock us, huh?

  1. Amen – we so desire a formula – give us rules and principals – not wisdom through communication.

  2. Ben,

    Yep. Sadly, I’m part of that group, but I can choose to change…if I want to.

  3. Thank you, Mr. Larry . .I do this too! I love what Ben said, that we desire formulas and not wisdom through communication. God bless you as He guides you and us through this series!

  4. I don’t wonder why gays mock us. I do it sometimes as well. We can be really funny, really stupid and really amazing. Believers are not known for thinking things through. Nor do most of us really know the Word. We just do our little out of context quotes that make us feel good or make others feel bad.
    Doesn’t really matter if it actually can be backed up by the rest of scripture. Doesn’t really matter if there may be other things to consider. Like saying homosexuals will go to hell if they do not stop while forgetting the list also includes us or our friends that continually gossip.
    We generally prefer throwing stones to dying to self. I do anyway. :/

  5. Debbie,

    Thanks. We serve a formal wrecking God, or at least, this is true in my life. God bless you and your family.

  6. Ephraiyim,

    Yep, I hear you. I carry a pocketful of stones around with me at all times, just in case I need them.
