Yet this nonsense is easily proven wrong by the Bible. First of all, did you notice that Todd Friel did not quote a single scripture to support his position? That is because none of the scriptures that deal with homosexuality support his view. He teaches that we should love, hang out with, and be buddy-buddy with sodomite relatives. But what does the Bible say?
Romans 1:Then after giving a role call of the attributes of these Sodomite reprobates, he says in verse 32:
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.So, in verse 32 the Bible clearly tells us that it is a sin for us to take pleasure in those who commit such things. Wouldn't being their friend, going to barbecues with them, and "loving them to death" fall under the category of "taking pleasure in them"?
Not only that, but the Bible says in 2 Peter 2:
6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;So was Lot right to stay and hang out in Sodom? Was he right to pitch his tent toward Sodom? NO. He vexed his righteous soul by doing so, and as a result, both of his daughters grew up to be filthy perverts themselves. A similar result will happen to those who follow the wicked advice in this video.
7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)
In the Romans 1 role call of Sodomite attributes, notice that one of the things on the list is "haters of God:"
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,Now compare that with Psalm 139:
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
21 Do not I hate them, O Lord, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?Isn't Psalm 139 one of the psalms we are commanded to sing in Ephesians 5 and Colossians 3? Did David love homosexuals in light of the fact that the Bible says that homosexuals are "haters of God" in Romans 1? 2 Chronicles 19:2 teaches the same thing:
22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.
2 And Jehu the son of Hanani the seer went out to meet him, and said to king Jehoshaphat, Shouldest thou help the ungodly, and love them that hate the Lord? therefore is wrath upon thee from before the Lord.Here are more biblical examples of how men of God dealt with sodomites:
1 Kings 15:12 And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.
1 Kings 22:46 And the remnant of the sodomites, which remained in the days of his father Asa, he took out of the land.
Which of these godly men invited the sodomites to a barbecue, Todd Friel? Which of these righteous kings "loved them to death"? Put to death? Yes. Loved to death? No.2 Kings 23:7 And he brake down the houses of the sodomites, that were by the house of the Lord, where the women wove hangings for the grove.
Leviticus 20:13 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.
Sorry, Todd, although your view sounds really good to the unlearned, it is totally unbiblical. All sin is not equal as you imply in this video. The Bible speaks of the "greater sins" and "greater damnation" for a reason.
Please do not be deceived by this video or other similar teachings on homosexuality. KEEP YOUR KIDS AWAY FROM HOMOSEXUALS, no matter what fools like Todd Friel tell you. They are dangerous perverts and pedophiles that the Bible warns us in Genesis 19, Judges 19, and Romans 1 are violent.
