Breaking: JESUS WAS GAY!

Home - by - December 17, 2012 - 19:30 America/New_York - 34 Comments

This is from that same stupid “church” that gave us this ad:

St. Matthews in the City Church Posts Offensive Jesus Billboard | Gay

Now they have this:

Was Jesus Gay? Church Billboard Says It’s Time for Baby Jesus to ‘Come Out’

Read here

I’m not buying it. Here’s why:

- Jesus was a carpenter, not a choreographer

- He turned water into wine, not whine

- He would have enjoyed all those piercings

- His miracles would have been called true blue spectacles

- The apostles would have been called “his girlfriends”

- Mount Peter would mean something else entirely

- He would have caught crabs, not fish

-  He walked on plain ole water, not sparkling water

    That’s nothing less than blasphemy. Those Sodomites trying to defame Jesus are goint to burn. But us Christians won’t go ballistic in the street like the muzzies; we know of divine, natural violence.

    Doesn’t matter to me what any man or woman on earth says one way or the other about Jesus.

    Humans are sinners. Humans tell lies. Jesus IS the Truth. He cannot be tarnished.

    Someone needs to ask Westboro why they’re not on the way to New Zealand to protest.

    I mean, if they were in it for principle, and not just money made by provoking people and suing them, they’d surely have an issue with this wouldn’t they? Especially being Baptists and all.

    I read the rest of the linked article and it doesn’t say that the makers of the ads are gay or advocating homosexuality, but they are creating purposely provocative ads to make people think about these and other questions. However. It also seems they are enjoying the “hits” on their church website and Facebook page.

    There are just too many instructions in the Bible, a Holy-inspired book to Christians, about the command for reverence that I cannot understand how anyone who thinks they are part of The Church could believe for a minute that this junk is obedient.

    You are seeing here that Satan is quite clever. No Christian of true and abiding faith would agree this absurd ad campaign is worthy of Him. Whatever this church is, it has lost its way, if it ever was on the right path.

    We will be seeing and experiencing an ever increasing array of clever Satanic deceptions coming at the world in a fast and furious manner. Hold tight to God. Hold tight o Jesus. That’s the only way to see us through the coming troubles.

    Jesus was not gay. He was married and had children. He was required to be married because Hebrew law requires all rabbis to be married. And Jesus’ followers referred to him as rabbi. It’s in the Gospels. You do not call someone rabbi in passing. So, he was married.

    He had children. The name Barabbas is a form of Bar-Rabbi, that is, son of the rabbi. His name, given in the Gospels, was Jesus Barabbas. So the name means Jesus, son of the rabbi. Joseph was not a rabbi, but Jesus was. It’s simple. He gave his son his own name and the Bar-Rabbi followed. Similar to John Johnson or Ivan Ivanovich.

    I see nothing wrong with this. I do not understand why a supreme being, God if you will, would send his only son down to Earth to pay for the sins of all mankind, but to deny him the very thing that makes humans, human. Sexuality and paternity. Having to die while his wife and son live would be the ultimate sacrifice.

    Errr no. There were the rabbis indeed, but then were also the PROPHETS. Those guys were not subject to the law of men. They were part of the messianic community.

    I don’t believe Jesus was married and had children. He knew what his mission was. Why bring a wife and dependent children along for that turbulent and monumental event?

    Besides, it is a waste of time speculating whether Jesus was or was not married. It is all about His message. His ministry. His mission on earth. What He did for humanity. What He does for humanity still and forever more. Amen.

    In my humble opinion, I think at least one of the Gospels would have referred to Jesus’ wife and explained the relationship. I don’t think it would have created a problem for the story of redemption and salvation if he had been married and lack of evidence either way doesn’t mean he was or wasn’t. But it would have created quite a lot of controversy if he had children, I think, because he was divinely conceived and he was the Son of God incarnate. That’s a unique situation and I’m guessing that God didn’t intend to leave His own DNA on earth.

    @Dagny and @Karin — Jesus was a rabbi. Read the Gospels. His followers called him rabbi, more than once. Jews don’t call each other rabbi for the fun of it. And since he was a rabbi, he was married. It is Hebrew law. All rabbis MUST be married. No amount of belief can change the fact that Jesus was a rabbi and was married.

    The reason he had children was because he was Jewish. It was the responsibility of all Jewish men to have children, if possible. And as I stated before, sexuality and paternity are two of the most emotional parts of the human experience. I can’t believe that God would command him to experience humanity and die for our sins, but deny him the very things that make us human.

    @AbigailAdams — You would think the Gospels would have mentioned his wife. They did, but only in passing. The Gospels were written in the 4th century and there’s no telling what was removed or added. I know that no one wants to hear this but Mary Magdalene was his wife. She was not a prostitute. According to the Gospels, she had 7 demons cast from her. Many of the religious sects at that time had ritual initiations, one of which was to go through a 7 day ritual. Mary Magdalene was merely one of his early followers. Many of his disciples resented her because she was the first to go through this. It is easy to tell that she was his wife because when Lazarus died, she went out to meet Jesus before he got to the tomb. The disciples “rebuked her.” Why? Because she was sitting shiva for her dead brother Lazarus. She was not allowed to leave the house, but according to law, her husband can allow her to leave. When the disciples rebuked her because she left the house, Jesus told them it was okay. Remember, only her HUSBAND can allow that.

    Also remember that Jesus was not considered divine until the Council of Nicea in 325 AD. In 318, Emperor Constantine won the Battle of Milivan Bridge. It consolidated his empire. Knowing he would be under attack, he allowed all of his subjects to believe in their religions as long as they took up arms when he said so and obeyed the law concerning the official religion; Constantine was a believer in Sol Invictus — The Invincible Sun. The yearly feast day was the winter solstice and all business and public offices were closed on “the venerable day of the Sun” — Sunday. At the Council of Nicea, the Church made some changes. Jesus’ birth was moved from early January to December 25th, the winter solstice. The Sabbath was moved from Saturday to SUNday. All of this moved the Church away from its Hebrew roots and put it more in line with the religion of the empire. And at Nicea, the council voted to make Jesus divine.

    These are facts that cannot be disputed. They are part of history. I accept them. My faith is not disrupted in any way by the truth. I do not fear the truth. I believe in God. I believe that Jesus was a prophet, not divine, but perhaps divinely inspired. He was married and had children. Why all of this was not recorded, I do not know. The political machinations from the 1st to the 5th century probably had much to do with what we know. Even today, with computers and electronic record keeping, we have a man in the white house that has never proved he is constitutionally qualified to hold the office of president. Now imagine the record keeping of 2000 years ago.

    I do my best to merge my religious beliefs with historical facts. I’m good with it.

    @Stranded
    Jesus may have been married. We will not know in this earthly time frame. I am aware he was very close to Mary of Magdalen. I am aware she was never a prostitute. The story of Jesus at a wedding where he turned water to wine made me wonder if it was his own wedding when I first read that story as a youngster.

    But again, I assert, it doesn’t matter to me if Jesus was or was not married. Jesus is to me the messages he spoke to the masses and to his disciples and the reason he was sent here to earth by God. The fulfillment of that task has blessed those who believe in Him everlasting life.

    Once upon a time I believed solely in God and thought of Jesus in the same way you do. Life experiences shifted my way of thinking. He is my Lord and Savior. I feel Him in my life in a great way every day. Although I do not go to church. I do not have much patience with hypocrites and poseurs who are found in abundance within churches. I don’t know if I will get demerits for that.

    @Kairn — Good for you! I mean that with the utmost respect. That is what real religion is for. To show us the way, to help us along, and to let us know there is something more than us.

    At my wedding, I read from the Gospel and read The Wedding at Cana. I did that because I knew it was Jesus’ wedding and I was doing so out of respect. We were being married, just as Jesus and Mary Magdalene were, and for many of the same reasons.

    Don’t worry about the demerits. I believe Heaven has a pretty simple grading system — pass or fail.

    @Stranded — I have to respectfully disagree with your interpretation of the Bible concerning the deity of Christ.

    On of my favorite ministers and scholars of the Bible is Alistair Begg, the head minister at Parkside Church in Cleveland. I listen to him on our local station and his sermons are available online, either live or as downloads. (for Sonos owners, you can find archives under the show, “Truth For Life”) I mention Begg because I’ve been listening to him for years and he satisfies my need for Biblical scholarship; his references in substantiation of his assertions are water tight and I bring him up in case you or anyone else here would like an additional resource for Bible study.

    Besides the opening paragraphs of Genesis which describe Jesus Christ, one of the most compelling arguments brought for the divinity of Christ is the famous passage from Lewis’s “Mere Christianity.” It has become my go-to for anyone who believes that the Son of God incarnate was only a prophet or “merely a great spiritual teacher.”

    “I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing people often say about Him. ‘I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept His claim to be God.’ That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sorts of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic–on a level with the man who says he is a poached egg–or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronising nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.” — CSL

    I realize that the religions of Islam and Judaism do believe that The Christ was just a prophet.
