It’s official, I’m not “homophobic”
43 – Your score rates you as “non-homophobic.”
It has never been about hating people, it has always been about hating sin.
People that choose to succumb to temptations and participate in homosexual acts are sinners in need of a savior the same as myself and everyone else.
What is most important is that we do not call, for any reason, something acceptable that God has declared in His Word to be an abomination.
No I do not hate or fear anyone, instead love insists that I do anything and everything I can to share the Good News that everyone can be delivered from the bondage to sinful behaviors through belief and trust in Jesus.
Psychology does not make right
The Frontline article referenced in the link above states that “For much of this century, homosexuality was defined by the medical and scientific community as a psychiatric disorder.”
This is true. The APA changed its position not based on scientific research or data, it changed its position in 1973 due to political pressures and infiltration of its leadership positions by homosexual activists.
Homosexuality continues to become accepted more and more as “normal” and it is religion that is seen as the “mental illness”.
Researchers treating religious, moral obsessions
The recongized “father” of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud, believed that people who follow their “natural” desires (read “sin nature”) that are truly sane. Dr. Benjamin Wiker in the book “10 Books That Screwed Up theWorld: And 5 Others That Didn’t Help” explains:
He [Freud] claimed that psychological disorders were the result of the unnatural repression of our naturally unholy and anti-social desires, and that some people just couldn’t handle the repression… Therefore, neurotics are the only sane people because they react to unnatural frustration by training to reclaim their original, natural, asocial and amoral state. The result: the anti-social psychopath who kills without conscience is the most natural of all. The interesting effect of Freud’s proclamation that evil is natural was the seemingly unintended consequence of making psychopathic insanity natural.
Since psychology/psychiatry is limited to man’s “wisdom” and man’s determination of what is right and wrong, psychology can be used to redefine anything in service to a purpose.
There is ample evidence that Psychiatry has been used for political purposes by communist countries. Basically, political and/or religious dissenters are labeled as “mentally ill” and imprisoned in maximum-security psychiatric hospitals.
Political Abuse of Psychiatry in the Soviet Union and in China
We are already seeing this happen in the U.S., and can expect it to wax worse.
Those of us who look to God’s revelation as to what He considers to be right and wrong are being labeled, marginalized, and more and more demonized. This is in fulfillment of prophecy as the world comes together under one universal religion that leaves no room for God.
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
3 John 1:11
Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good. He who does good is of God, but he who does evil has not seen God.
Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good.
