In Part 6 of Michael & The Devil, Michael addresses how to handle the hard button issue of homosexuality. Providing personal stories and the importance of showing love and grace to people, but not contradicting scripture.
In this video, author Michael Furlonger shares that, as Christians, we have to stand on biblical truths. In this video, he shares his response to a friend on Facebook on the topic of homosexuality. Furthermore, he shares on the importance of holding God’s Word as sovereign.
Part 6 is the last video on the “Michael And The Devil” series. In the next series, Michael will be raising scripture against scripture.
Matthew 19:4-6, 11-12 reads, “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
“Not everyone can accept this word, but only those to whom it has been given. For there are eunuchs who were born that way, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by others—and there are those who choose to live like eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. The one who can accept this should accept it.” (Matt. 19:4-6, 11-12)
Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error. (Romans 1:26-27)
We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine… (1 Tim. 1:9-10)
Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men. (1 Cor. 6:9)
In the video, Michael shares on the importance of showing love without compromising the Word of God. He shared an example of a young boy coming up to him concerned of his salvation and God’s love because of his sexual desire. This is a perfect example of being loving and gentle, but holding to the Truth.Try Audible and Get Two Free Audiobooks
