Are we surprised when we discover a published gay Bible? Editors justify modifying the “King” James version because the king was, according to them, gay. There is, however, no credible evidence in existence to confirm his sexual experience.
Editors claim the KJV has translation problems. Writing about interpretive ambiguity for the word “abomination” [Leviticus 22:18 – Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” KJV] they say, “Since abominable offenses aren’t all punishable by death like this one, leads us to believe there was translative error at some point.” To me, that contradicts Revelation 22:18-19:
“I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll. And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll.”
Adding And Subtracting
Their goal with this bible, in my opinion, is to justify their lifestyle, to make homosexuality sound like normal Biblical acceptable behavior. Since their movement came out of the closet decades ago, they have mounted Herculean efforts to become accepted in society. In some areas they have succeeded: business, human rights, politics, the arts, the entertainment industry and more. Now they have manipulated God’s Word to make homosexuality sound acceptable. In a promotion for the bible one editor wrote, “You can’t choose your sexuality, but you can choose Jesus. Now you can choose a Bible, too.”
You can’t abide in Jesus if you choose to practice (which suggests continuing to live in) sin. God’s REAL word says you can not live a sinful lifestyle and live in the righteousness of God. Now the gay bible attempts to remove the stigma of God’s truth and His ultimate judgment from sin God Himself calls abominable.
God loves every creature He creates. He loves gays. He loves Muslims. He loves me. But He hates sin. Gays don’t believe homosexuality is sinful. I guess we’ll all find out the truth soon.
