As is the practice of A Crooked Path all misuses of words have been removed and the actual word put in their place, as is also done when using mere letters of a numbing and accepted worldly fashion in defining and describing acts of sexual immorality, perversion, and deviancy that goes against God, nature and the Word of God. This practice is even done in quotes. It’s long overdue that if people of God actually believe these acts are a sin and an abomination against God, nature, and the Word of God they do not appease the worldview, do not take a percentage of worldview mixed with some Christian worldview to placate, be accepted and appease. It’s time to speak and write exactly what these things are and no longer succumbs to the word usages and abbreviations used by the world. It takes about a second and a half to say what they really are and only a couple of seconds time to actually write what these acts are, as opposed to succumbing to worldly definitions and usages. And in bowing to the worldview? Using their errant meanings, definitions, and abbreviations? No one is “winning them over” they are only appeasing them and the forces of evil chuckle at how easy it is to get people of professed faith to become weak and fearful desiring to appease them rather than pleasing the Lord our God.
Let us take a moment to consider the word “gay” used universally and widely to define and describe a person who lives a homosexual lifestyle and commits immoral, abnormal, deviant and perverted sex acts, but that alone is not the whole of the homosexual lifestyle. They live to corrupt and pervert, or remove Christianity and the truth contained in the Word of God as well. Yet, almost to a person — and I address this to those professing to be Christians now, whether speaking or writing they use the word “gay” to mean a homosexual person. Do you realize why that word was chosen by the fascist militant homosexual movement to become the word used to define them? Because it is 180 degrees opposed to their real life. How they live. They took a word meaning light, fun, cheerful, frivolous, happy, and corrupted it to come to define the abomination of how they live and what they believe.
And yet professed Christians bow to this and they use the word “gay” rather than speaking or writing the truth, the facts. Why? Afraid to stand out? Might have to declare your faith? Support the Word of God? Like appeasing and pleasing the people of the world rather than pleasing God?
You think Jesus, the apostles, God, the Holy Spirit, any of the prophets would have substituted the actual practices, meanings, and clear speech to acquiance to homosexuals and the world because they demanded that word be used?
Why do people of supposed faith in Jesus, in God, saying they believe the Bible then become unrecognizable to that Word and cannot be separated from anyone pagan, any unbeliever in the world?
Why use the wrong words? Because everyone else does it?
Think on this. Pray on this. You might not like to read this but I do not turn from the truth of the Scriptures and the true meanings of words, and concern myself more with being liked and accepted by people rather than speaking and writing the truth according to God’s Word and His ways and instruction to us.
There is NOTHING gay about any homosexual or their lifestyle. Do not be deceived. Do not make yourself like the world, no different from the world.
You fear having to explain yourself to someone for using the right words rather than “gay” to describe the sin and abomination of homosexuality?
You might be better to go off somewhere quiet and deeply ponder having to explain yourself to Jesus when each of us will be before Him in judgment.
Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed.
John 3:20 — New International Version
You love evil more than good, and lying more than speaking what is right. Selah
Psalm 52:3 — English Standard Version
The fear of the LORD is hatred of evil. Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate.
Proverbs 8:13 — English Standard Version
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Isaiah 5:20 — King James Version
I’m more fearful of displeasing the Lord than I am in making people of the world happy. Or liking me. Or feeling I must resort to their corrupting of words and definitions in order to fit in. When will we who profess with our lips to be true disciples of Jesus, not be ashamed of the gospel? Because we sure act as if we are by speaking and writing as the world does! Rather than speaking and writing and living as the Word of God instructs us. When will we finally stand tall, stand firmly with the Word, in the Word, putting on the full armour of God ( http://Ephesians 6 ) and living the Word rather than living with a worldview, language, and ways while thinking we’re living God’s ways?

Franklin Graham attacked by council over biblical views on sexuality
26 June 2020
Reprinted from: The Christian Institute
Franklin Graham has been attacked by Newcastle council over his biblical views on sexuality.
City council leader Nick Forbes said the Council would “not tolerate” the U.S. evangelist’s beliefs.
Earlier this year, a series of conference venues, including Newcastle’s Utilita Arena, cancelled bookings for Franklin Graham’s gospel events after caving in to pressure from lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, and transgender activists.
Franklin Graham was due to preach at eight venues across Britain this summer, but all cancelled the events because of his biblical beliefs on marriage and sexuality.
Forbes’ comments came after The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association commenced legal action against his council for breach of contract.
He said the legal move showed Graham “didn’t get the message”.
Claiming to speak for Newcastle’s approximately 300,000 residents, Forbes said: “We do not tolerate or accept his peddling of controversial, repulsive views about the lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, and transgender community and his disgusting, outdated comments on sexuality.”
But in an interview with Premier Christian Radio, Graham said: “I’m not against homosexual people, that’s one of the things that’s just not true. I’m for all people, and I care about homosexual people.”
He added: “I think there’s a real misunderstanding. We’re not here to preach against anyone.
“But we’re here to tell everyone how they can have their sins forgiven, and how they can have a relationship with God through faith in his son Jesus Christ.”
The U.K. Government has previously said that ‘no-platforming’ Franklin Graham is an example of a “particularly disagreeable modern trend”.
