Mainline Christians often blame the evangelicals for worshiping the bible. But the truth is that the liberals do not have faith that Jesus is God, and is risen from the dead and is the messiah, and so rather than admitting their unbelief would claim that the bible is fallible and that evangelicals are worshiping the bible. The real sin of the evangelicals is worshiping the bible translators and being deceived by the mother church and by Jesuit theologians. A case for example is 1 Cor 6:9, which is translated in NIV as “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….”, or in NKJV as “9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites”
The root words which is interpreted as homosexuality by the bible translators is malakos and arsenokoites. The very foundation of the law was forgotten. Thou shall have no other gods! which is the context in view of the very sexual and male focus pagan worship. They were not homosexuals but heterosexuals having sex to join themselves to pagan gods and temple prostitutes. These will not inherit the kingdom of God because they belong to the kingdom of satan and not because they were gay. When we misinterpret and mis-translate the bible at fundamental points, we weaken the sanctity, the power, and message of the bible.
Why would Paul even refer to or talk about about gays when he has 95% of straight to preach the Gospel to. The Gospel was written to people of faith, the majority whom are in deeply sexualised pagan worship. Paul’s message was clear! Choose your allegience and the Kingdom! It was never about same sex relationships.
The meaning of the clobber verses of 1 Cor 6:9 becomes clear as we go to the original Greek source and how the words are used in ancient literature. A totally different interpretation arises that is consistent with the general theme of the passage:-
This is the Greek word that is incorrectly translated as “Male Prostitutes” and “Effeminate” persons. In Greek, the term refers to “soft” and “softies” or “weaklings”. Aristotle used malakos to denote unrestrained indulgence in bodily pleasures, or licentiousness. Hence it is far more likely to be a general reference to people who are weak willed and cannot resist sin and have no self control in general. A general translation such as “licentious” or “wanton” would better preserve the sense of the original
Some translators assume that malakos is paired with the word, arsenokoités, and is interpreted as referring to the passive partner in a homosexual relationship, rendered as ‘male homosexual offenders, perverts’ (NIV) and ‘sodomites’ (NRSV ). There is no evidence for such usage elsewhere in ancient Greek literature. To argue that together, the two words, malakos and arsenokoités refer to passive and active partners in homosexual intercourse, belies the historical and lexicographical evidence and perpetuates a homophobic prejudice or a deliberate act of mistranslation has injected a bias into the text.
Surely, the passive partner is not in a gay relationship but the temple priests availing himself to have sex with the worshipers as the bottom or the passive partner! This has nothing to do with same sex relationships.
This is a uncommon word in the Greek culture and may be a slang term used by Paul. It is a combination of two Greek words. “Koites” generally denotes licentious sexual activities, and corresponds to the active person in intercourse. The prefix “Arsen”, simply means “male”. It could mean a male that has sex with lots of women. This may refers to temple prostitution by heterosexuals or men who sleeps around with other women or wicked sexual abusers understanding the culture then demean the loosing army by raping them.
Isn’t this the picture of male pagan worshipers having sex orgies with the temple prostitutes as if to join themselves of the spirit of the pagan gods! They are not gays but straight people.
When Paul mentions sexual immorality, his examples clearly indicates that he is referring to heterosexual immorality. In 1 Cor 5:1, Paul lamented that “It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that does not occur even among pagans: A man has his father’s wife.”. The news and extent of their heterosexual immorality reaches Paul and not any homosexual orgies.
So many times, the greatest anti-gay crusades have the greatest hidden sins. The bible doesn’t focus on gays or even mention about same sex orientation because gay people are a very small minority then and today for any special mention. Why singling them out for not entering the Kingdom of God when Paul was actually referring to the ancient pagan worship with their sexual cults which were ever so present in the streets of Rome! Any competent religious scholar would have known the religious practices of Rome during the visit of Paul! why the deception to avoid the truth!
Why is the Roman Church and later the translators for the church of England so adamant to blame gays in 1 Cor 6:9, because it is the church herself who is the fornicator and in bed with the evil one. Why did the straight men have sex with the temple priests? to join themselves with the demonic principalities, to receive power and wealth. Why do they worship Baal? so that the harvest would prosper! Jesus warned of Satan’s temptation in the desert of power, wealth and harvest if we bow down to satan.
Many anti gay zealots have profoundly deep hidden secrets. Often they are living in deep sin. The church is no different. Ever wondered how did the church maintained power for 2,000 years? and what is the secret to the power of the church? the joining of the womb of the church – in the ancient wheel of life, with the obelisk at the center representing the male organ of the Sun God. Therefore, the joining of the church with the spirit of satan, of the anti-christ in the very centre of the church hierarchical at St. Peter’s Square. The wheel of life represents the womb of the church, the reproduction center of the church. The Obelisk represents the erect sexual organ of the Sun God. Therefore, whilst the church comes against gays as immoral, at the very centre of the church is a deep unholy alliance.
Therefore, those who follow the interpretation of 1 Cor 6:9 as referring to gays should look themselves in the mirror of the straight community where tens of thousands of babies are aborted each year, and where adultery is so common, and ultimately the adultery of the church in its very core.
The church and her bible translators are so anti-gay because it is the church and straight people who are the greatest sinners. We like to focus on the prostitute and say go and sin no more, but have forgotten that the pharisees or people of faith were no more there at the scene because Jesus had judged and condemned each of them by the law by writing on the ground their sins just as He wrote the Mosaic law unto tablets.
For the bible based Pharisees, Jesus’ finger wrote judgement on the ground, but for the prostitute, He touched her. If 1 Cor 6:9 was referring to gays, they would have bought two gays to be stoned! but they brought the woman prostitute with the man not being found! When evangelicals use 1 Cor 6:9 against gays when the Greek words used is unclear at best, are we not only destroying the bible by misinterpreting it! and blaming the innocent ones thus hiding the church herself from sexual sins.
When the evangelical churches uses clobber verses such as 1 Cor 6:9 to come against gays, it undermines the truth of the bible and the Gospel and the devil knows it. For the truth is undermined because people can see that being gay is innate just as straight people are thus. Therefore, by insisting that certain verses are anti gay, it undermines the Gospel truth in the bible by implying that the bible is wrong.
The devil wants to deceive the evangelical charismatic churches because causing great harm through wrong bible translation will undermine the bible and the Gospel message. Once the bible is proven to be wrong and the actions of Christians hypocritical at best, the good testimony and name is lost and the world will know us for our hatred of gays rather than God’s grace through Jesus Christ, our lord and saviour. This would be a tragedy. It is time Christians rise up to read the bible in the original version, understand the satanic religious worship in the days of Paul and judge for ourselves lest we let the theologians and holy father be God. For satan can also read the bible but christians need to affirm its glory and power declaring Jesus Christ the risen Saviour.
