Matthew 25 has always been understood to be Jesus’ instruction regarding who will and who will not make it to heaven. In the chapter Jesus instructs that entry to heaven depends on the individual’s support of God’s people “His brethren” who will be found suffering persecution prior to His coming.
Yet Tony Campolo, one of the most major Evangelical pastors in America, who pastored former U.S. president Bill Clinton, in his latest declaration says that the verses apply to Christians who show love to the LGBT.
Instead of applying the verses to the greatest time of need during the persecution of Israel and the Church, that the verses are regarding the key to recognize true Christians who aid in the plight of their persecuted brethren, a key to show who may or may not enter the Kingdom, Campolo places his highest priority to Matthew 25 to accepting homosexual marriages. Christianity Today reported:
Just 18 months ago Campolo said: “My position has been, over the last several years, that the government should not legitimate gay marriage, and it should not legitimate heterosexual marriage.” But now, in a post on his own website, he has reversed this position and is urging full acceptance … he says that “on Judgment Day the defining question will be how each of us responded to those he calls “the least of these” (Matthew 25:40).
It has taken countless hours of prayer, study, conversation and emotional turmoil to bring me to the place where I am finally ready to call for the full acceptance of Christian gay couples into the Church.
All this gets to show that so many, including individuals who claim to be scholars of the Bible ignore that God does not heed to man’s whimsical approach to His commandments. Supporting the gay agenda is but a glimpse in history’s time which means nothing to God. Fads come and go. They are but a spec of dust when it comes to millenniums where it has always been known that God never changed His mind since God’s Word remains forever. In Matthew 25:31-46, the Son of Man will judge the nations, not for whether one is accepting or rejecting the LGBT, but for doing nothing about the persecution of God’s people which we see ample evidence today where persecution of Christians and Israel is at its height.
Campolo insults, slanders and blasphemes Christ making Him not just an advocate for “Sodom and Gomorrah”, but that He Himself is a liar, like Campolo, and an enabler of the sodomite agenda. There is nothing in Matthew 25 that pertains to aiding Sodom when it was clear that He in fact destroyed it.
In Genesis Abraham is visited by three figures, one of whom he refers to as “My Lord” (Genesis 18:3), and who Scripture calls “the LORD” (Genesis 18:17). This person was then God in the flesh, and thus Jesus Christ.
After much feasting, Christ and the other two men leave Abraham to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah:
And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous; I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know. (Genesis 18:21-22)
The sin of Sodom and Gomorra was homosexual deviancy (19:4-10). Christ therefore, destroys a city for gay behavior. Christ believed in the Law which Moses, being divinely inspired, wrote against homosexuality:
If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood [shall be] upon them. (Leviticus 20:13)
He would also have subscribed to the Mosaic law which forbade men from wearing women’s clothing and vice versa:
The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so [are] abomination unto the LORD thy God. (Deuteronomy 22:5)
So would Christ allow sodomites or their enablers in the Kingdom? No.
Matthew 25 says nothing about aiding sodomites but everything about aiding the plight of true Christians:
“When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy[c] angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’
“Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did unto one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’
“Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’
“Then they also will answer Him,[d] saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”(Matthew 25:31-46)
American Christians need to start thinking seriously, that a divide is clear between Sodom and Jerusalem, between Christ and Antichrist. No matter how fanciful the arguments are, Christ is simple, there is no room for Sodom in the Church. In one recording, Campolo tries to make a sound argument that Uganda’s anti-gay law is but an attempt by evangelical missionaries to promote “homophobia” and that they are “like Muslim groups who want to enforce Sharia law …”
The trick with these advocates of evil is to always pass a label. Campolo calls Christians who want to pass laws to stop the advancement of the sodomite agenda as “Christian re-constructionists” and says that “ultimately, Evangelicals are responsible for the anti-gay attitudes across Africa”.
The key to recognizing truth from falsehood is simpler than most think. A Christian can easily determine how to divide between the slick, smooth talkers, sophists and the true Christians. Jesus made it very simple: “You shall know them by their fruits”.
Is your pastor a simple man who is aiding in the rescue of fellow believers from suffering severe persecution, or is he busy in advancing a mega church, a fad and a politically correct social agenda?
How hard is that? There is no need then for hours upon hours of theological debates and nasty back and forth backbiting arguments since God will never advance the agenda of Sodom and Gomorrah and neither will He allow such reprobates in the fold of the sheep. Gay activity is not sex or marriage, but a disgusting masturbatory friction and there is no way either medically, scripturally or morally can anyone justify such use and call it normal. God will never reverse his laws or His order.
If one must get into the game of finding the error and the contradiction, it is simple. Christianity Today says of Campolo:
He admits that for some Christians, the sole purpose of marriage is procreation, which obviously negates the legitimacy of same-sex unions.
“Others of us, however, recognise a more spiritual dimension of marriage, which is of supreme importance. We believe that God intends married partners to help actualise in each other the ‘fruits of the spirit’, which are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control, often citing the Apostle Paul’s comparison of marriage to Christ’s sanctifying relationship with the Church.”
This doesn’t mean that unmarried people cannot achieve the highest levels of spiritual actualisation – Jesus himself was single, after all – but only that the institution of marriage should always be primarily about spiritual growth, Campolo argues.
Through his wife Peggy he says he has come to know many gay Christian couples whose relationships work in much the same way as their own marriage.
The contradiction is obvious, marriage, Campolo argues is between a man and a woman and sex is pro-creation. How can we then have “gay Christian couples” be considered “marriage” or that being a sodomite is Christian? God therefore, never “gave birth to queers”.
So why do so many waste their time and energy arguing useless evil causes? There are plenty of persecution of Christians to pay attention to besides the ugly habit of this disgusting masturbatory friction the world is trying to promote? True Christians can be found in every corner, nook and cranny singing Kadisha “Holiness”. They use all languages to praise and suffer for the name of Christ and they call upon you to answer their plight.
While it angers us to see such falling away, the right attitude is to rejoice, for the coming King is soon. But the sooner His coming is, the more that Christians will suffer persecution. This includes Christian bakeries who suffer the onslaught of the sodomite agenda. How can we then aid the very ones who cause us suffering and say that this is the key to the Kingdom of Heaven?
Christians who are persecuted resemble Christ’s body “For I was hungry and you gave Me food …” So please consider the serious issue on Christian persecution, which will increase as we see the falling away unfolds before our very eyes. We are (Rescue Christians) who simply do what the label says “rescue Christians”.
