lips are an abomination to the LORD; but those who deal truthfully are His delight. (Prov. 12:22 NKJV).
Paul said, “Do not lie one to another..”
(Col. 3:9). True Christians don’t lie but speak the truth. Every believer needs to be “rightly
dividing the word of truth” (2 Tim. 2:15 NKJV). A basic understanding of the holy languages
is essential so that Christians can preach the truth. This is because the English Bible has thousands of renderings that are
different than the Hebrew and Aramaic Bible. On the study about homosexuality, there is some deliberate forgery of God’s
word. This has caused many Christians to be deceived and to preach deceit. Consequently, this pamphlet is designed to end
the ignorances’ of lovers of truth from deceivers on whether a person can be gay and Christian.
There are a lot of Christians that know you can be gay and Christian but they conceal the truth because they
are afraid to go against created social norms or their denomination. They are afraid of what the ignorant may say or do. This
is similar to the hypocrisy of Peter and Barnabas that Paul had to rebuke (Gal. 2:11-14).
Some Christians are miserable and want to make someone else’s life miserable so they use oppressive
and blasphemous interpretations of Scripture. These Christians have undergone some evil, and so they recompense evil with
their interpretations of Scripture, falsely attributing their hatred with God. These fake Christians are not exercising self-control.
Paul said in the surrounding verses for them to: put off…anger, wrath..blasphemy, foul communication…And
put on the new life which is renewed in knowledge after the pattern in which it was originally created.” (Col. 3:8,10
Other people assume the Christian name but aren’t
really believers. These deceitful workers (2 Cor. 11:13) want to oppress, control and pervert the Gospel
of Christ. They have their own beliefs that they obtained from their upbringing, society, false religion or other source (2
Peter 2:1). It is a good thing that the LORD will not let these false brethren go unpunished.
Religion has been used to exclude others because of that person’s ignorance, hatred
or attitude of superiority. In Bible times, those that were hated and oppressed were orphans, widows, women and foreigners
to name a few. Now it is the homosexual peoples turn to be outcasts.
The following verses will show some of the lies
that scholars have put into a particular Bible translation or Lexicon. They have no right to add words, delete words, translate
the text biasly to establish a teaching, amplify hate or eliminate meanings of foreign words.
Presently, most New Testaments are translated from the Greek Text. Hate filled scholars have put their prejudice
in our Bible. In the Today’s English Version (TEV), the translators translated the words ma-la-koi and
ar-se-no-koi-tai as "homosexual perverts.”
Even if these scholars believe these words refer to homosexuals, they deliberately add the word perverts, because of
their own prejudice. In Jude 7 it says: “As Sodom and Gomorrah...having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh...,”:
actual Greek says that the people went after other flesh, which is referring to the foreigners. Some translators translate
the underlined portion as the people committing perversion (TEV) and practiced unnatural vice (New American
Bible [Catholic]). Remember, people pick and choose verses out of the Bible to justify their own prejudices. In the (NIV),
the translators deliberately add the word “sinful” in their translation of Romans 1:24: “Therefore
God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with
one another.” The word sinful is not in the Greek text, nor in any other English Bible. In the Living
Bible, it states: “Homosexuality is absolutely forbidden, for it is an enormous sin.” (Leviticus
18:22 THE LIVING BIBLE TYNDALE first printing 1987). The Hebrew word to-e-vah is
translated enormous sin (Living) and abomination (KJV), but has the primary meaning of “something despised”
or “an abhorrence.” Also, for the New Living Translation, it translates Leviticus 18:22 as: “Do
not practice homosexuality; it is a detestable sin.”
When one consults the Greek-English Lexicons on what are the definitions of some Greek words, one also finds some deception
here. Scholars are deleting definitions for the Greek words. For the word ma-la-kos, Strong
has this word meaning only “soft,” and “effeminate.” But Liddell and Scott have this word meaning
someone that is morally weak, lacking in self-control, and indulgent.” Vine has the word ma-la-kos denoting homosexuality and also “someone that is addicted to sins of the flesh, voluptuous.”
I believe Strong deliberately left out the definition for ma-la-kos as an indulgent person for his own advantage; to make people not question if the word ma-la-kos carries the definition of a homosexual. For Strong’s definition for the word to-e-vah, he adds a definition to this word as: Prop. something disgusting (mor); knowing full well that this
word doesn’t mean this, nor can he find this word to carry that definition anywhere in the Bible in context.
There are many more examples I could give, but this should suffice you to see that their is some deliberate forgery
of what the Hebrew and Greek actually says.- There is a lot of ignorance on the subject of homosexuality, but a lot of scholars
know you can be gay and Christian, but they want to oppress. They use the Bible for power and try to use religion to control
society according to their beliefs. Also, there are some hate filled and oppressive verses in the Bible about women, which
is not what the Hebrew, Aramaic or Greek says.
22. FINAL NOTE:
I have finished
the whole Aramaic New Testament plus I finished twenty books of the Aramaic Old Testament. This written work is
not to be assumed that this is all to be known about homosexuality in the Bible or gay people in the Bible. This is just
all I have discovered thus far, being a Westerner. This is just the beginning of the long task ahead. Presently, I'm starting
school, so I will have to put a temporary hold on finishing the rest of the Aramaic Old Testament.
