Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
John 15:18 “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.”
Homosexuals are up to five times as likely to attempt suicide as their heterosexual peers. ‘ Transgender’ teens have even higher rates of suicide. It is, for all intents and purposes, an epidemic among the LGBTQPXYZ. The California Legislature says that’s the fault of religious people.
A resolution called ACR-99 chastises the religious community for the plague of suicides.
The bill reads…
WHEREAS, The stigma associated with being LGBT often created by groups in society, including therapists and religious groups, has caused disproportionately high rates of suicide, attempted suicide, depression, rejection, and isolation amongst LGBT and questioning individuals…
California legislators blame two groups who’ve tried to steer LGBTQPXYZ people away from high-risk behavior that places them in greater jeopardy for suicide, with their suicide. It’s pretty crazy when you think about it.
The problem with the legislature’s conclusions – that religious people cause LGBTQPXYZ suicides – is that homosexuality and transgenderism has never been more acceptable in the history of mankind. One would expect, then, for suicides caused by religious bigotry to be in decline. However, LGBTQPXYZ suicide-rates have actually increased along with the acceptance of homosexuality in the culture.
Simply put, there’s no demographical or statistical information which can substantiate the claim that the LGBT commit suicide because religious people (or therapists) don’t approve of them. In fact, all statistics seem to indicate that LGBTQPXYZ suicides are caused by LGBTQPXYZ behavior.
The resolution then instructs religious people to embrace the LGBTQPXYZ.
1st Corinthians 16:22 “If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.”Anathema - a person or thing accursed or consigned to damnation or destruction.
Maranatha - the Lord is coming” or “come, O Lord.
Resolved, That in addressing the stigma often associated with persons who identify as LGBT, LGBTQ, we call on the people of California–especially its counselors, pastors, religious workers, educators, and legislators–and the institutions of California with great moral influence–especially its churches, universities, colleges, and other schools, counseling centers, activist groups, and religious centers–to model equitable treatment of all people of the state; and be it further
Christians are NOT at Fault for the perverts committing Suicide. That is like the crazy thinking that a Gun is responsible for killing someone. NO, it is the fault of the Depraved and Reprobate person who has chosen to reject God and His Word, and to embrace perversion.
Romans 1:26-32 “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; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 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.”
These people are demon possessed and that is what drives them to suicide!
John 10:10 “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
Take for instance Judas Iscariot, the disciple who betrayed the Lord Jesus. Satan possessed him.
Luke 22:2-3 “And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill him; for they feared the people. 3Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.”
When Satan was finished with him, he committed suicide.
Matthew 27:3-5 “Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, 4 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that. 5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.”
