LEXINGTON, Ky. (ChurchMilitant.com) - A deacon in the diocese of Lexington, Kentucky is claiming that Jesus "knew that safe sex and education ... are the actual way to reduce abortions."
In a YouTube video posted on Nov. 3, Deacon Steve Hester of St. Paul Catholic Church in Lexington made multiple statements implying that Jesus Christ was either supportive or indifferent to abortion or homosexuality, claiming that he "didn't preach against abortion at all" and "didn't preach against same-sex marriage or homosexuality either."
Deacon Hester says: Now Jesus didn't preach against abortion at all. Now I don't know why He didn't. I don't believe He thought killing babies was OK. And rest assured there was abortion back then. People have been figuring out how to end pregnancy early since they figured out what pregnancy was. So it's not as if He was unaware. But maybe He didn't preach against abortion because He knew that safe sex and education rather than legislation are the actual way to reduce abortions. But He also knew that we wouldn't end up believing in safe sex or education. So, it was a moot point. You'll have to ask Him when you get there.Nabi says….Really? The deacon needs to go back to school and learn the Bible. While it is true that we have no evidence of Jesus using the word “abortion”, however, if the deacon would turn to Mark 10:19 he would read:
Jesus said, “You know the commandments: ‘You shall not kill”Is abortion not the KILLING of a defenseless human life?
Deacon Hester goes on to say:
“And He didn't preach against same-sex marriage or homosexuality either, even though there were LGBT persons back then too. And maybe He didn't preach against homosexuality because He was here to teach us how to love, not who to love. And when He did preach about marriage, it was to stress its permanence, its insolubility. He taught us how to love our partners for life, He didn't teach us who those partners should be.”Nabi says….Once again, the deacon needs to learn what’s in the Bible. Jesus was quite clear about the definition of marriage:
Matthew 19: 4 He said in reply, “Have you not read that from the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female’ 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? 6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has joined together, no human being must separate.”And let’s not overlook what the Apostles had to say about behaviors which run contrary to the sacredness of Christian marriage....
Romans 1: 25-27
25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie and revered and WORSHIPPED THE CREATURE rather than the creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26 Therefore, God handed them over to degrading passions. Their females exchanged natural relations for unnatural, 27 and the males likewise gave up natural relations with females and burned with lust for one another. Males did shameful things with males and thus received in their own persons the due penalty for their perversity.
Nabi Sayeth: WORSHIPPING THE CREATURE appears to be at the root of everything LGBTQ….
1 Corinthians 6:9-10
9 Do you not know that the unjust will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators nor idolaters nor adulterers nor boy prostitutes nor sodomites…
10 ...will inherit the kingdom of God.
1 Timothy 1:8-10
8 We know that the law is good, provided that one uses it as law,9 with the understanding that law is meant not for a righteous person but for the lawless and unruly, the godless and sinful, the unholy and profane, those who kill their fathers or mothers, murderers, 10 the unchaste, sodomites.Nabi Sayeth: Once again the deacon proves himself to be both ignorant and confused about the teaching of Jesus AND His apostles. It was the apostles filled with the Holy Spirit who through their teaching, their preaching and their glorious martyrdom put the desires of the Lord into concrete form. No Christian has the right to forgo, cast aside, reject or disregard the precious words of Our Lord and His apostles….
Jude 1:77 Likewise, Sodom, Gomorrah, and the surrounding towns, which, in the same manner as they, indulged in sexual promiscuity and practiced unnatural vice,* serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.
There was a report in Catholic Culture.org 11/20/18:
The Catholic Church in England and Wales tweeted, “Today is Transgender Day of Remembrance and we pray for all people who are ill at ease with their gender, seek to change it, suffer for it and have been persecuted, and also killed. All people are loved by God and valued in their inherent God-given dignity. #TDOR”Nabi Sayeth: To be sure, no one should suffer or be killed because of their misinformed and erroneous belief about human sexuality. But where was the Catholic Church’s abundant teaching on human sexuality tweeted by the administration of the Catholic Churches of England and Wales? Where was Truth presented? If the leadership of the Church in England and Wales is going to “celebrate” a lifestyle that runs contrary to Church teaching, should the Church’s teaching on such a lifestyle not receive, at least, equal time?
[Editor's Comment: Gender dysphoria is a painful and serious mental problem. The bishops' tweet adds to the confusion and the likelihood that vulnerable individuals will make decisions that hurt them -- including increasing their risk for suicide. Read more at LifeSiteNews, especially what Christine Mead writes in an article for teens: "If you are having a transgender experience right now, that doesn’t mean it’s permanent. God has given us the gift of science and the wisdom of doctors to help us heal where we need healing. Doing harm to your healthy body and hormones is not the answer. Your healthy body doesn’t need healing. There are other options to help you manage. There are other steps you can take to help your mind not be at war with your body."]
TOLERANCE is the mantra or buzzword used by those who call for the acceptance of the LGBTQ lifestyle which runs totally contrary to the way of Jesus and His Church. And while as Christians we are called to love all people, even those who choose a lifestyle contrary to the way of Jesus, we are finding that OUR LIFESTYLE, THE CHRISTIAN LIFESTYLE is not being equally treated with TOLERANCE:
LONDON, England, November 21, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A Christian parent confronted the governors of her child’s primary school about treatment she and her son received after she objected to the school’s mandatory homosexual “Pride Day” celebrations.
That treatment included being barred from entering her five-year-old’s school to discuss the kindergartener being given four hours of detention after his mother’s objections to the LGBT event were made known.
Izoduwa Adhedo was one of a group of parents who complained that their children, pupils at Heavers Farm Primary School in South East London, were compelled to take part in the June 29, 2018 “Proud to be Me” event. According to a statement released by the UK’s Christian Legal Centre (CLC), some of these parents, including Mrs. Adhedo, say that they were treated “dismissively” and “victimised” after their objections.
CLC’s Robert Kiska told LifeSiteNews that when Adhedo met with Susan Papas, the principal, or “headteacher,” on September 19 to discuss her concerns, she was confronted by a teacher – the principal’s daughter – wearing an aggressively pro-LGBT T-shirt.
The t-shirt asked, “‘Why be racist, sexist, homophobic or transphobic, when you can just be quiet?’”
On October 8, the school sent Adhedo a letter “which basically dismisses her complaint,” Kiska said, arguing that since corporate Pride events are deemed acceptable, they are acceptable in schools.
On the same day, Adhedo’s five-year-old son was “for the first time in his life” given a detention – for three hours. The next day he was put in detention for one hour.
On October 12, Adhedo came to the school to discuss her son’s treatment, but she was barred from the building. “They [staff] deemed her to be uncooperative and hostile,” Kiska said.
Adhedo and her husband Shane then removed their child from the school.
[Editor's Comment: Smart parents! The alphabet community is after your kids. They claim they aren't, but they target vulnerable children with perverted story hours in public libraries and books and films that normalize and glamorize perversion. Parents who love their children don't take them to "Pride Parades" and other evil events or allow their minds and hearts to be stolen by "teachers" with an agenda.]Nabi Sayeth: It is so easy to:
-look the other wayBut if we deny the Truth of Jesus, where does that leave us????
-go along just to get along
-to confuse TOLERANCE with ACCEPTANCE and in so doing to deny the Truth presented by Jesus Christ…..
Nabi Sayeth: Perhaps a look back to the first believers would help:
John 6:63-68…..63 Jesus said: “It is the spirit that gives life, while the flesh* is of no avail. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and life. 64 But there are some of you who do not believe.” Jesus knew from the beginning the ones who would not believe and the one who would betray him.65 And he said, “For this reason I have told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted him by my Father.” 66 As a result of this, many [of] his disciples returned to their former way of life and no longer accompanied him. 67 Jesus then said to the Twelve, “Do you also want to leave?” 68 Simon Peter answered him, “Master, to whom shall we go? ONLY YOU have the words of eternal life.”My Friends: Choose well and with great care...Your eternal salvation depends on it….
