Does God hate figs or fags?

Does God hate figs or fags?

Rick Brentlinger Answers -

Sounds like you've been hanging around Fred Phelps and his strange family. No, the Bible never says that God hates fags, gays, lesbians, queers, homos, dykes and fairies.

According to the Bible, God loves us and wants to save everyone who will trust Jesus alone (instead of their good works).
"But God demonstrates his love for us by the fact that the Messiah died for us while we were still sinners."
-Romans 5:8, International Standard Version
Based on what the Bible says about figs, one could argue with much more scriptural authority and more in context (than the anti-gay crowd trying to make a Biblical case against homosexuals), that God hates figs.

The Bible on Figs

"18 - In the morning, as he (Jesus) was returning to the city, he became hungry.

19 - And seeing a fig tree by the wayside, he went to it and found nothing on it but only leaves. And he said to it, "May no fruit ever come from you again!" And the fig tree withered at once.

20 - When the disciples saw it, they marveled, saying, "How did the fig tree wither at once?"
-Matthew 21:18-20, English Standard Version

"12 - On the following day, when they came from Bethany, he (Jesus) was hungry.

13 - And seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to see if he could find anything on it. When he came to it, he found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs.

14 - And he said to it, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again." And his disciples heard it."
-Mark 11:12-14, English Standard Version

"I will surely consume them, saith the LORD: there shall be no grapes on the vine, nor figs on the fig tree, and the leaf shall fade; and the things that I have given them shall pass away from them." -Jeremiah 8:13, King James Bible

""But thus says the Lord: Like the bad figs that are so bad they cannot be eaten, so will I treat Zedekiah the king of Judah, his officials, the remnant of Jerusalem who remain in this land, and those who dwell in the land of Egypt." -Jeremiah 24:8, English Standard Version

"17 - 'Thus says the LORD of hosts, behold, I am sending them sword, famine, and pestilence, and I will make them like vile figs that are so rotten they cannot be eaten." -Jeremiah 29:17, English Standard Version

The point is that "fag haters" need to stop taking verses out of context. Trying to prove something that isn't so, by taking verses out of context, is so yesterday.

eDisciples are serious about real Bible study.

How can I find a gay-affirming church in my area?

What did Jesus say about homosexual eunuchs or gay people?

If your gay and claim to be of faith, that makes you an oxy moran!

Rick's comment: LOL - Your comment is hilarious, for reasons you probably don't understand.

P.S. - We know that you also wrote the Kill All Faggots comment. You should get psychiatric counseling.

Love One Another
by: Mike L

I'm not a brainiac or a rocket scientist. I'm not even a college graduate for that matter. I am queer though and i have been since i was five or six years old. I am a christian and i can say with complete confidence that i love God with all my heart.

Why i am gay I do not know but I am and for all that I have prayed God has not delivered me from that sin. I am not a slut nor do I lust uncontrollably for other men. I belive in being true to my partner and do not desire every other man out there. I'm honest and kind and my love for my man is true and a wonderful experience of life.

All of you heterosexual bible believing fanatics will never understand who or what I am, I don't expect you ever will. I don't believe I ever completely will either. What I do understand is that it is important to love and be loved, to know what love is. It is most important to relinquish the authority of the flesh and follow after Jesus Christ being true to ourselves. God bless you all. Remember to lift one another up and not to tear down, love one another as Christ loved us and died for us all.

Kings of judgment
by: Youngsheperd

The Lord is king and we are not. Its not your call to judge what or who people love. I'm not gay nor am I close to being perfect. But I strive to improve myself daily by practicing understanding and Patience. "The Lords name is God because he is the only one".

I'm Late to the party
by: Mom

So we are all sinners and all fallen short of the glory of God, to get that out of the way. I don't attend church because I was born into one that is anti-LGBTQ+ but I was pleasantly surprised to be dragged into church a couple years ago for a literal translation seminar.

The verses that the pearl clutchers rest their laurels on is not what is in translation. Gay rape is not good. That's it. IMHO all rape is bad because it's not consensual but I digress.

Rick's comment: Hi Mom- Thanks for your comment. I have more than 1000 pages of FREE Bible studies on this website, which I encourage you to print out and use.

They're on our FREE DOWNLOADS page. They'll help you grow in your knowledge of Jesus and the Bible and help you grow as a Christian.

I also have an excellent Study Guide to Genesis 19 - the chapter about Sodom and Gomorrah. The Sodom 101 Seminar is on the Home Page of this website.

You’re misguided
by: Joel

You cannot claim to be Christian and also homosexual, it is like the other person said an oxymoron.. which is true.

You’ve taken all of these verses out of the bible because it (in your mind) justifies the Godless action you are committing by choosing to life the gay lifestyle.

Yet you skipped over the most important one: Leviticus 18:22 —

It states that: Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is ABOMINATION (this is a clear verse which many people turn a blind eye to, but it's in the bible)

Rick's comment: Hi Joel- Thanks for your comment.

I have more than 2000 pages of FREE Bible studies on this website.

I didn't skip Leviticus 18:22 and I didn't turn a blind eye to it. I explain Leviticus 18:22 in great detail.

Leviticus 18:22 and shrine prostitutes.

Joel, have you taken the Sodom Seminar?

Have you made SURE you are saved?

You can live in you fairytale world where you can be both, but you wont go to heaven (also in the bible) many so called "Christians" will get to the gates of heaven only to hear our lord and savior Jesus Christ tell them: "Away from me you evil do’ers, i do not know you!"

Rick's comment: Really Joel? If I disagree with you on the gay issue, I must be going to hell - for disagreeing with you on the gay issue?

Isn't that a proud and childish thing to believe?
