Principle 1: Do not use God's grace as a License to do Evil. (Jude 1:3-4). Updated 5/29/2021

Updated: May 29, 2021

Only 6% of Americans have a 'biblical worldview.' --Barna Group.

In today's culture, we need to preach the true gospel of Reconciliation. We need to train children, Youth, and Young Adults to hold fast to their Christian Faith, not deconstruct their Christian faith. More and more "Evangelical" actors and artists are deconstructing the Bible and moving away from the true gospel of Reconciliation. They believe in the Universal Christ and that is not Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is one who died for you and me on the cross and rose again on the Third Day (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). God's grace is not a license for evil. It is eternal license to follow God and not follow the culturally standards.

We need to get back to the true meaning of what a Church is. A Church is not suppose to follow the culture. However, Andy Stanley church is going strong with the Gospel message. He is not going with the culture.

Andy Stanley has been subjected to numerous objections that are simply ungrounded. First, Andy Stanley does not discredit the Old Testament. This argument is laid to rest in his doctrinal statement. Second, Andy Stanley elects believers in Christ to serve in the local church. (https://northpoint.org/church-overview).


A Church is supposed to help people draw closer to God and set their trajectory towards Christlikeness.

It is so sad to see many of the artist that I knew and love drop their Christian faith and embrace the culture. They are essentially making their own religion. We need to get back to the DNA of what a church is supposed to do. The churches that are embracing the culture is missing a key verse--Romans 12:1-2.

Romans 12:1-2 states, "I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do Not Be Conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect."

First, by practicing Homosexuality and changing your gender, you are not presenting yourself as a living sacrifice to God. Homosexuality is wrong and against God's standard. I know that I will face opposition by saying this. But it is the truth that comes from God. Romans 1:26- 27 states, "For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature. and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women, and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error." This verse indicates that God finds this lustful attraction to men dishonorable. Paul continues on, "And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty (prideful), boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God's righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them." (Romans 1:28-32). Just note the last phrase, "Though they know God's righteous decree." The people knew God's righteous decree. yet they close their spiritual eyes and do it anyways. I am firm believer in the inspiration of Bible. I believe Paul's book of Romans was divinely inspired by God. So, God does not condone Homosexuality or any sin for that matter. 1 Corinthians 6:18-20 also attacks sexual immorality. 1 Corinthians 6:18-20 states, "Fee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body." By practicing sexual sins, such as homosexuality, transgenderism, transventialism, you are not only sinning against yourself, you are sinning against God and not glorifying God in your body. We should treat our bodies with respect and dignity. Also there are earthly consequences for practicing homosexuality, this is HIV. You can get diseases by practicing homosexuality and transgenderism.

This is my view. I am for Traditional Marriage. If you are irritated with my view, I am sorry, but it is the Truth set before us in the Bible.

This is my view. I am for Traditional Marriage. If you are irritated with my view, I am sorry, but it is the Truth set before us in the Bible.

For a list of verses, please see this list: 1 Tim. 1:10, Col. 3:5, 1 Thess. 4:5, Lev. 18:22, 20:13. The Bible clearly does not endorse homosexuality. We should not use God's grace as a license to take part in sinful actions such as pride, selfishness, gossip, slander, bitterness, anger, same-sex attraction.

Jude 1:3-4 (ESV) states, "Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation. I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ."

Jude was writing to say to the saints who believed in Jesus Christ to still contend for your faith. Do not let them turn the Gospel of Jesus Christ into a license for Evil. We should stand up for the True message of Reconciliation because on Jesus Christ, our church will stand (Matthew 16:18).

The Bible again does not endorse nor accepts the practice of homosexuality. This is my stance.
