We are seeing over the last several years, our culture being dominated by radical individualism and radical subjectivity.... what's true for me is true for me. (quote)
- "Our culture is dominated by radical individualism and a radical subjectivity; what's true for me is true for me," Tonkowich observes
- The ECLA and other denominations often rely on this kind of "subjective truth" and moral relativism when setting guidelines, the Institute spokesman asserts. "Rather than submitting to the authority of the scriptures and the authority of the church, it's every man for himself and every woman for herself," he says. "We're in a position not unlike what was in the [Bible's] Book of Judges, where the refrain is 'and everyone did what was right in his own eyes.'
- Tim Hardaway, was a NBA Miami Heat player, and a very good one, who spoke out about John Amaechi (another NBA roll player) who came out about his homosexual life style. Amaechi didn’t come out until he was out of the NBA.
What is interesting, NO ONE has ever said they were homosexual publically while playing in the NBA. If the NBA were ok with this lifestyle, you would think those who were "gay" would be free to say it. Now that it’s out, the press asks the questions. Those who are positive about the lifestyle are treated well, but when Tim Hardaway stated his position he is murdered by the media.
Amaechi "Believes homophobia is rampant in and out of sports." He should know. He played in the NBA.
Amaechi went on to say
"People in America and England would like to think racism is over, sexism is over, and homophobia is over, but it’s not." "It’s hard to get straight guys to step up,"
"Anti-gay rant" is the phrase the media uses when people speak out against homosexuality.
SEXUAL BEHAVIOR IS A CHOICE OF LIFE STYLE
SEXUAL ORIENTATION: DIRECTION
While sexual behavior of all choices have been since the creation of mankind, God has set forth His choice of sexual behavior for mankind. From the start of mankind, man has refused to obey most of God commands. We should not be too surprised at man’s reactions
What God has set forth for mankind’s behavior is well stated in His Word the Bible. We have God’s Word on the subject and then we have man’s word on the subject.
As a Biblical believing Christian and minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I am personally bound to what the Word of God says in it’s entirety. I should not be subjective in my own thinking about any issue without first understanding God’s position. I should not embellish, diminish, or insert my own preference into what the Word of God is saying. With that said, I must with all my thinking, believe and recognize the truth of God’s Word on the subject of sexual behavior, be it sex outside of marriage of any kind. The Word I believe directs us to believe that any sex outside of marriage is SIN, that is, that which we do against the will of God.
I do not apologize for my belief that has been formed by my understanding of the Word of God.
