Strange emails - some clowns are NOT in the circus.

From time to time we receive crazy arrogant goofy sometimes ignorant (and often just plain silly) emails from professing christians, most of whom are too lazy to study the Bible in context.

As time allows, we will post these emails as Comments on this thread. Here's a sample received on January 14, 2011. You're welcome to add your Comments if you care to.

"Depart from me you that practice lawlessness I never knew you. Those who love me keep my commandments (The law)" - Jesus

Paul is stating Christians are not under the curse of the law. That does not mean you do not have to keep his commandments. You must be insane to think Christians can keep sinning continually. That is called a hypocrite Pharisee!

Homosexuals and Lesbians are rebrobates! - Romans 1:26 - You better wake up!

Is this site and it's members a disgrace to Christianity, or an insult to Jesus and God?
by: Allegedly honest Abe

What is... They are both. :) No amount of word twisting can prove that the Bible is not against homosexuality.

That's like saying the Bible isn't against stealing, killing and lying. I know this won't get posted, but at least someone on this site will see it ;)

My sister is gay but she does not claim to be Christian. You cannot have both, that is contradictory?????????

Be Sure
by: John

I am always amazed at thinking like what I see here. Liberals and the Gay Christian Community have determined to "Make God in their own image". I suggest you be 100% sure of your belief system, otherwise you are leading vulnerable people down a very dangerous and slippery spiritual slope.

I demonstrate my ignorance and laziness by refusing to study
by: Brookss aka Disciple of Jesus

Answer how these verses of law do not condemn homosexuality?

Leviticus 18:22
Leviticus 20:13
1 Corinthians 6:9

Revelation 21:8 (abominable - cross-reference back to Leviticus 18:22. What is an abomination? A man lying with another man, just as with a woman is an abomination. And what will have their part in the lake of fire? The abominable!)

Please, how can you ever say you are a Christian and be gay, and say that homosexuality is not a sin! I rebuke you.

* * * * * * * * *

If you say being gay is not a choice, that does not nullify your sin anymore than it does if you can choose.

What can the clay say to the potter?

Romans 1:26-27 - What else could it be talking about!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!? You people are insane if you cannot realize that it is talking about woman having relations with woman, and man having relations with man! You people are insane, and I rebuke everything on this site.

This is one of the sickest website...
by: D

This is one of the sickest website I've ever seen. The Bible is crystal clear on what God thinks of homosexual acts and it's abominable. You will never be able to justify it and you make me want to throw up.

Any sin is wrong in God's eyes and just because you may be bent towards being gay, doesn't mean you act on it or try and say it's all ok in God's sight. I hope this website crumbles and falls and I'm praying that happens so you don't lead people astray.

I'm appalled and am saddened. I won't even quote Scripture on the matter because you are blind and lost and it would be casting my pearls before swine.

I weep for these individuals
by: Stephen

My name is Stephen. I am 31 years old. When I was 12 years old I was sexually molested by a leader from my church. When I told the pastor he told me that I needed to get the devil out of me and stop trying to destroy godly men. Oh by the way I already knew I was gay and my father, an exBaptist minister had accepted me. He raised me in the Bible and he knew I loved the lord.

While I was being molested and feeling lower then snail slime, I thought this man was abusing me because I'm gay. I started dating a young man while I was in high school. I never told him about the abuse I had suffered. After a year the young man I was dating developed a heart condition that he died from.

Long story short, I was forcibly incarcerated in a change camp where I was treated lesser then human. I had to lie and they forced me to sleep with a female, as in, they were outside the door listening.

I still love God after all I've been through but I just find it hard to believe that people filled with so much hate for their brother or sister could truly be following God. I'm not judging any ones walk. Lord knows that there's enough of that going around these days.

My heart grieves the lives that will be destroyed and I pray daily for understanding and for the scales to fall from the eyes of those who speak with serpents tongues from honeyed lips.

bible versus
by: Anonymous

Leviticus 20:10-16

?If a man commits adultery with the wife of his neighbor, both the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death. If a man lies with his father's wife, he has uncovered his father's nakedness; both of them shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them. If a man lies with his daughter-in-law, both of them shall surely be put to death; they have committed perversion; their blood is upon them. If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them. If a man takes a woman and her mother also, it is depravity; he and they shall be burned with fire, that there may be no depravity among you. ...

No one is perfect, He who is free from sin, can cast the first stone, therefore I cannot judge you nor do I want to, but there are many versus in the Bible that clearly state that homosexuality is abomination to God (a sin) The wages of sin is death.

Your explanation is a bunch of BS
by: Francesca

Matthew 19:3-12 does not translate that way nor do Christians believe that eunuchs born that way were homosexual.

Just like homosexuals to try and twist the word of God for your own benefit. Eunuchs that were born that way were born without a sexual organ or parts missing. Jesus never said they were homosexuals. i don't know what Bible you are reading but God does not accept gays/lesbians.

Yes He loves them but according to the Word of God you will not enter the Kingdom of God along with all unrepentant sinners. Gays were not born that way nor did God create them that way. It is of the devil and totally demonic. It is s demonic spirit that has been passed down from generation to generation because of sin and disobedience.

The devil would like you to believe you were born that way so that you remain in deception and join him in hell. But God is more powerful than the devil and the demonic spirit of homosexuality and can set all of you free.

You just have to surrender EVERY area to Him, repent and sin no more. God loves you but hates the sin and will not allow sin before Him.

Fake question from ex-gay ministry guy, James Kjellin
by: James Kjellin

From time to time, I get emails from ex-gay ministry leaders who act like they're trying to reconcile being gay with what the Bible says. When I respond with a Bible-based answer, they jump me and let me know I'm going to burn in the lake of fire. Here is an example of that from James Kjellin of Reconciliation Ministries.

"How can you say that homosexuality is not sin when in 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 The apostle Paul states that certain people that practice these types of sins will not inherit the kingdom of God. He lumps Homosexuality with thievery of those who will not go to Heaven. It plainly states that homosexual practice and lumps it with thievery, drunkeness which are sins. It's either all correct or it's not. I want you to give biblical proof, not david and jonathan or genesis. that text says those who practice these sins will not go to heaven. it's plain in the sight. How can I reconcile that?"

My answer to James Kjellin
by: Rick Brentlinger

Hi James- Thanks for writing to us. I'll do my best to provide a brief but helpful answer. When Paul wrote 1 Corinthians, there was no Greek word which was the semantic equivalent of our English word, homosexual. The word homosexual first came into use in the German language in 1869. Homosexual became an English word a few years later and was in some English dictionaries by the 1890s.

The Greek word, arsenokoitai, which is translated homosexual in the NIV, is never used in the Bible to mean homosexual. The NIV simply got it wrong. Arsenokoitai in the first century referred a shrine prostitute or a rapist; sometimes it referred to interspecies sex but never homosexuality.

Arsenokoitai is a rare Greek word. It only occurs 77 times in extant Greek literature from the first time Paul used it in 1 Cor 6:9 through 1450 A.D. I list the first 56 uses in Greek literature on my website. Arsenokoitai was never used in the Greek language back then to mean homosexual. Here are some Links which go into much greater detail.

Hope this is helpful in answering your question. If you have more questions, please let me know. Your brother in Christ, Rick Brentlinger

You're headed for the lake of fire
by: James Kjellin

That's not the Gospel. I will pray for you and the people on your site. You are really deceived, God can change your heart and wash your sins away. The sin of Homosexuality is the same as thievery, drunkeness and can be cleansed. Romans Chapter 1 clearly says that men with other men and women with other women are sinful and perverse. 1 Timothy 1:8-10 clearly says that the Law is used for kidnappers, murderers, homosexuals etc.

If you continue to live a lifestyle of sin of homosexuality, which the bible says is sexually immoral along with fornicators, adulterers the bible says their part is in the Lake of Fire. Please fast and pray and repent of this wickedness and perversion. Even worse, you are leading others astray by your teaching. Thank you, James Kjellin

Jun 20, 2011
I respond in grace to Kjellin's ungraceful comments
by: Rick Brentlinger

Hi James- You didn't ask me about the gospel. You asked about 1 Cor 6:9-11. I provided an in depth answer (and links) which are true to the gospel, true to the Bible rightly divided and true to the Greek text and the English text of the Bible.

Just for the record, I am saved, born again, washed in the blood of the Lamb and I have eternal security. I don't live a sinful homosexual lifestyle as you allege. My life honors God, is Biblical and is focused on serving God by witnessing and leading gays and non-gays to saving faith in Jesus Christ. I've had three people get saved this year, two gay men and one heterosexual man. You may read the testimony of the two gay men at these links.

May God bless as you walk the path of His purpose for your life. May the peace of God which passes all understanding fill your heart and mind. Your brother in Christ, Rick Brentlinger

James tells me I'm deceived
by: James Kjellin

Sorry Rick, but you can't be a homosexual and be a Christian. It's like a fornicator or adultress saying I really love the person and I don't live a sinful lifestyle. Eternal security is guaranteed only if you endure to the end. I know I truly asked Jesus Christ into my heart as Lord and Savior to wash my sins in His cleansing blood and to save me. But I know this, there are a lot of people who say they are saved but live in adultery and don't see this as wrong or sinful. The bible declares Homosexuality as sinful because Romans 1 says it's wrong, 1 Timothy 1:8-10 says the Law is used for sinners and then goes on to name the sins which homosexuality is in there.

You are being decieved if you think you can be a homosexual and still a Christian. You cannot, same thing with thieves, adulterers, fornicators etc. You can't be both. It's yourself or Christ. james

My final remarks to James Kjellin
by: Rick Brentlinger

Hi James- I get so many emails like yours, absolutely certain you are right, accusing me of being deceived, yet you are completely incapable of discussing what the Bible says, in context.

Referring me to Joe Dallas is kind of funny. I was reading Joe Dallas back in the 1980s and even then, his ability to deal with facts and context were wanting. Joe impresses me as more of a bisexual than a gay man who experienced orientation change.

Joe answers some of the pro-gay arguments made by liberals who reject the final authority of scripture. He does not answer the arguments on my website and in my book.

Unlike you, I have studied the issues. I have read Joe Dallas, Robert Gagnon, Focus on the Family, Exodus materials and a lot more. For one who believes the Bible, their writings are not convincing. Only a man who refuses to study would find their words convincing.

I pray the Holy Spirit will open your eyes to the immense harm you are doing to your gay brothers and lesbian sisters. Your brother in Christ, Rick Brentlinger

Calling yourself a Christian doesn't make you one
by: Neal

Sorry, calling yourself a Christian doesn't make you one. Homosexuals, according to Romans 1, are so because of their rejection of true God. I have God's word on this.

Oh, I'm sure you have a God, but not the God of the Bible. God says men laying with men is an abomination. So, the terms "Christian" and "abomination" are mutually exclusive. No more argument to be made. -Neal

Jul 05, 2011
by: James Kjellin

first of all, your comments about me being a clown are uncalled for, however that be it may. the bible is very clear in this area about homosexuality. Not only that but it is unnatural
The same as sex with an animal is unnatural! These are not my opinions, these are in the Bible.

God calls you from this lifestyle of sin. It's sin, just like thievery, drunkeness, scammers. Don't be deceived into thinking this is okay.
This is the warning given in God?s Word for all who sin. Including those who continue in the sin of homosexuality.

Read the Bible on these issues and trust the bible not a man who runs a website. Examine yourself to see if you are in the faith.

No one takes you seriously anymore
by: Rick Brentlinger

Like so many of your fellows, you are incapable of discussing what the Bible says in context. So you keep repeating your falsehoods, hoping someone somewhere will believe you.

You don't like being called a clown but it's okay to accuse me of living a lifestyle of sin? Your anti-gay schtick is tiresome. Perhaps it's time to find a new hobbyhorse.

Your church is an abomination
by: Andy & Dianne van den Berg

This gem arrived on July 17, 2011 and a number of other rather strange emails from Andy and Dianne arrived over the last few weeks. I'll not post the other emails but this gives a hint of the flavor of their angst. Thank God I don't have to try to make up stuff like this.

First Name: Andy & Dianne

We have been sent to declare unto you that God has seen your works and it is an abomination to declare your church to be the house of God, while it is a place of darkness and wickedness and the Synagogue of Satan (Rev. 2:9).

At His appointed time he will bring His righteous judgment upon your house and when the time comes you will know that we were sent with a message of truth.

In His Service.

All the queers will go to Hell, God hates sin, and clearly states such. Quit picking and choosing what YOU want to believe. You will burn for all eternity. Queers are just filthy.

I hope you do get AIDS,as Satan will keep you for his own, and rightly so. You even look queer.

Narrow is the path, broad is the way, and you won't make it unless you repent!

Hey Anonymous - are you struggling with gay feelings?
by: Rick Brentlinger

Are you struggling with gay feelings yourself? Is that why you keep visiting a gay Christian website?

I hope you will keep visiting and reading and searching for God's truth. I hope you will continue to read and study and keep your heart open to what God has to show you.

You are greatly loved by God, Romans 5:1, so please do not allow folks to condemn you for things for which God does not condemn you.

Okay sweetie, you've had your fun so we won't be posting any more comments from you. I do hope you will work on your anger issues. If this website makes you angry, you should stop visiting this website.

I'll have to get fellow brothers to explain to you
by: T. Burkitt

First Name: TB

Country: United States

Your Comments*: God does not support homosexuality, and you being stupid and trying to get attention drawn to yourself by this and to FALSLY make people think they're going to Heaven, when they bought a one way ticket to Hell... Do you want that on YOUR hands...

read these verses because I am deeply concerned with what you have said. Matthew 7:21-23, Luke 13:24, 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 These are only a few things to point out, and please feel free to email me, I do want to help you...

but I'm trying to do it scriptually and that is to confront you privately, next I'll have to get fellow brothers to explain to you, and then I have to make it a public problem to the churches that teach correctly.

Sorry if this is rude
by: Anonymous

I only have one thing to say to those who support homosexuality. God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve... If a person wants to believe they are saved and go to Hell because they were led astray by what Rick has to say, even though he'll say that i'm listening to man, which I'm not this is what I HAVE READ AND FIRMLY BELIEVE. If you want to risk your soul, that's fine, but I will still pray for you all, and please don't say you're my brother or sister unlsess you have been baptized for the forgiveness of your sins and repented (or trying to not sin HINT HINT) and confessed you believe that Jesus is the son of God.

Please do not believe everything you think
by: Rick Brentlinger

Jesus was full of grace and truth, John 1:14, yet never truthless in His grace nor graceless in His truth. Are we like Jesus in this respect?

On a personal note, I find it weird that the anti-gay crowd is so offended by God's truth and this website.

If you want to make a gay person angry, tell him a lie.

If you want to make an anti-gay christian angry, tell him the truth.

To anti-gay christians: you need to study more.

Get the facts first. Replace fear of the unknown with curiosity and a heart receptive to truth.

Do you just ignore this command by God?
by: Jerry

First Name: Jerry

Country: United States

Your Comments*: Gen 1:27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Gen 1:28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth."

Gen 2:24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

It seems to me God's plan has from the beginning been for man and woman. How can a man and man or woman and woman multiply and fill the earth? Or do you just ignore this command by God?

Think Jerry, Think!
by: Rick Brentlinger

When God said Genesis 1:28 to Adam and Eve, there were only two people on earth. When God said Genesis 9:1 to Noah and his family, there were only eight people on earth. Today there are 7 billion people on earth.

Do you really believe that God's command to be fruitful and multiply has not been obeyed?

If you see that as a personal command to everyone on earth, how many children have you had? How many children must someone have to be able to say s(he) has met God's requirement? Are sterile men and women free to disobey God's command? Are celibate people free to disobey God's command?

Using Genesis 1:28 and 9:1 to prove that God is against gays and lesbians makes no sense, given that there are right now, more than 7 billion people on earth. It seems more like you're just trying to find a reason, any reason, to say something negative against gays and lesbians. Oh, by the way, many gays and lesbians do have children, both biological and adopted.

God bless you Jerry. I wish you a wonderful life and a deep inner knowledge that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

Thankfully ignorance isn't contagious
by: Anonymous Bozo

I am so taken aback by this website and saddened at the same time. How can you say that homosexuality is okay with GOD? Many scriptures contradict what you are twisting to scratch your itchy little ears.It's nothing but trickery of Satan. He has come to steal, kill and destroy, and he would love to see each and every one of us in hell with him come the end times.

GOD created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve, and had he meant for the world to be that way, the world would definitely not be in existence now.
If you say you love GOD so much and are a Christian and going to Heaven, why do you not GO to GOD and ask him to cleanse you of this unforgivable sin then?

Repenting means to turn away from, you can't ask forgiveness and give yourself to GOD and then continue on in that sin and think you are going to get to Heaven. That is so false and GOD knows the heart of each and every one of us, he loves all of us, but he hates the sins.

And regardless of how you want to twist it, that bible plainly states what sins will send you straight to hell. GOD doesn't send people there, they send themselves, and you can quote scriptures all you want, but think you are just deceiving yourself. NO, I am not judging you, I am merely telling you what that Bible says.

I do it out of love, because it really hurts to know that people refuse to change their ways, even for GOD, the almighty! The bible says that it's hard for the righteous to reach heaven, what of the sinner? I don't feel I have to list scriptures as you and so many others feel you know the Bible and we obviously have it all wrong.

I don't add to, take away or twist the words of the Bible either. I do not know one Pastor, Preacher, Minister, Rabbi,etc. who preaches that homosexuality is okay with God, unless it happens to be a gay Pastor. Bottom line is, it's NOT okay with God. He destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for man lying with man and woman straying from her natural relationship.

If being gay is okay, then this means that every sinner will go to heaven, right? So, let's all party and do what we want while here, and then we can go to Heaven, right? NOT! That is not the way it works at all, and if it were this simple, we'd all be able to do exactly as we please, live the life that pleases us and go to Heaven!

I am a sinner, everyone is a sinner and Jesus died for our sins, however, that doesn't make it okay, to go out, have fun and do what you want to do, then ask God to forgive you and turn right back around and repeat the same sin over and over again because in reality, you aren't really repenting from that sin, or you'd never do it again. Gonna have a lot of blood on your hands when the end times come.

No dear, it's not the same
by: Rick Brentlinger

There is an enormous difference between someone with an innate homosexual orientation, which they were born with according to Jesus, Matthew 19:11-12, and being a pedophile.

It may be helpful for you to read my page answering people who compare gay and lesbian relationships to having sex with animals. My answers to their vacuous mean-spirited moronic arguments also help to answer your unfounded belief.

Incomprehensible gibberish from a professing Catholic

There is no Salvation outside the Church visit the Divine Vengeance is around about awaiting thee, and in your Visitation; there shall be no running away, but shall be consumed and thine entrails thereof and inner sanctums and parts to exceeding magnitude - beyond angled space. EJ is recieving a fire into his bowels as we speak right now; and it shall be forever. This is an infinite fire exceeding the comprehension of the minds of men.

He infinitely thirsts, suffocates, hungers and the contents of his inner parts are spewing forth with great regularity, for he is consumed in soul consuming insanity, forever howing and dancing to incomprehensible tunes. He is situated below in the deep caverns of the earth, at its center, burning for his sins. He promoted his extreme views and now is richly paying for it.

Sodomites are possessed by the Demon of Lust
through the punishment of God, for having committed filthy sin. The Demon of lust drove this wretch to suicide, thats what demons do; there ultimate objective is to kill its host victim. Stop working for this filthy disgusting
sodomite organization. You are going to Hell. to escape, heed my message.

by: Matthew

Rick's comment: Matthew, I've responded to your first email online because you didn't give a real email address and my answer bounced back as undeliverable.

Concerning your remarks here, I marvel at your lack of Biblical knowledge. I encourage you to obey 2 Tim 2:15.

After stumbling upon this site, while searching for missionary stories, a deep sadness came over me. I know this is not to your liking, but it must be said. Do you not realize that pain you are causing Jesus by leading people astray? Please, look at the Bible in CONTEXT, as you yourself mentioned.

The penalty for sin is too great to be risked on self-deceit. I don't wish to say that your sin is worse than, say, a heterosexual couple fornicating. All sin is despicable. No one can be saved but by the grace of God. And what worries me is that you are telling yourself, and misleading others to believe, that a life of unrepentant sin is OK.

Rick's comment: The arrogance of your false accusation is mind-boggling. Didn't you ever memorize Ephesians 4:25? Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.

This is not meant to be hateful. Quite the contrary. It would be hateful for me to not attempt to point you in the direction of the Truth. Please, even if you choose to remain in your lifestyle, please oh please stop taking others with you. The price is too great; your eternal soul.

Haha God owns the copyright to your page.
by: Barry Parrish

And on the issue, You are covering hurt. The problem is you're heart is hard. You won't forgive
or acknowledge and forgive your offender. In a subtile way you're milking the offense to enjoy pleasure for a season. Hell is hot and God is no respect of persons. Your deeds is what he goes by.

You're living in sin under a delusion. The core is hurt and bitterness. So. Appreciate the great love God has given in giving his son in spite of our degredation, say Father I WAS WRONG. and get on with the battle, the best is yet to come. If I find subtility yet in you though you
haven't replied then, I cannot reply.

Rick's comment: I have no idea what Barry is talking about. From time to time people send me incomprehensible emails and some of them end up here. Pray for Barry.

Country: United States

Your Comments*: Hi,

I hope you're having a great day!

I am from Living Waters, the ministry of Ray Comfort. You have posted our "Good Person Test" and a video of Ray witnessing under your "How to Witness" page. While I am grateful for anyone wanting to spread the gospel and love their neighbor as themselves, we cannot endorse the sin of homosexuality, as your website does. I request you remove any mention of Living Waters and/or any videos, tracts, or articles relating to Ray Comfort, Kirk Cameron, or our ministry.

I have no doubt you have the most wonderful of motives behind this website, and that I do sincerely applaud, but Scripture is very clear about homosexuality being a sin and we do not want to be associated with anything that contradicts Scripture.

I would heartily encourage you to visit Exodus International’s website at to get more scriptural conclusions to the questions and studies in your menu bar. I write this sincerely as a friend and as someone who cares about you. I wish you the very best and sincerely hope you further study out the Scriptures on this critical issue.

Ray Comfort gave permission to post his tract
by: Rick Brentlinger

Hi Allen-

Thanks for writing to me. Before posting the Good Person tract on my website several years ago, I wrote to Ray and requested permission. Ray gave me permission to post the tract on my website, via Julie, his executive assistant, who answered my email request and relayed Ray's permission.

At the bottom of the page on which the tract appears, is a note that it is posted with kind permission of and pointing out that we do not agree on everything but that we agree that soul-winning is wise. In the several years the Good Person tract has been on my website, I've had about a dozen people write to let me know they got saved.

I should also point out that in my request for permission to post the tract on my website, I included a link to my website so that it was clear from the beginning that my website takes a different view on gays than Living Waters. The point is that I did not post the tract on my own, simply disregarding Living Waters' rights.

I requested and received permission from Ray to post it on my website. Julie relayed Ray's okay, granting permission and also pointing out that her brother is gay, that she and Ray and others from Living Waters have witnessed to him and asking me to pray for his salvation.

You may not be aware of it but there are a number of gay and lesbian Christians who have taken the Evangelism course, who use Living Waters and similar tracts and who witness and win souls on a regular basis.

If your email to me is because Ray has personally told you he changed his mind and has instructed you to relay his request that we remove the tract from the website, of course I will remove it. If you have simply assumed, wrongly, that I posted the tract without receiving permission and you are asking me to remove it without consulting Ray, I do think the honorable thing to do on your part is to check with Ray first to see if he has indeed changed his mind so that I will know the request to remove it comes directly from him.

Your brother in Christ,

Rick Brentlinger

I very sincerely care about you as a person
by: Allen Atzbi of Living Waters

Hi Rick,

I’m sorry for not writing back sooner! I really appreciate your kindly toned response and you taking the time to explain everything out.

I oversee all the permission requests for TV, radio, internet, print, etc. here at the ministry. At the time you wrote us no doubt we were smaller and many people wore multiple hats and in the rush to try and do much for God’s kingdom occasionally things fell through the cracks or didn’t get the attention they deserved. In zeal to get the gospel to as many as possible, I fear we rushed in too quickly with our original permission request.

You are free to keep our resources posted under the condition that you include the following disclaimer:

“These resources have been posted with permission from Living Waters, upon clearly stating that their organization completely agrees with the Bible’s teaching that homosexuality is a sin, and that homosexuals will not inherit the Kingdom of God. Living Waters unmistakably believes that it is a contradiction for someone who claims to be a homosexual, or who practices homosexuality, to also claim that they are a Christian. All homosexuals must repent and place their faith in Christ in order to receive forgiveness and everlasting life.”

I apologize that when permission was originally granted a clearer disclaimer, as above, was not included. If you are not willing to include the above disclaimer, we would ask that you remove all reference to our ministry from your website.

On a side-note, apart from the permission request: I very sincerely care about you as a person, and love gay people as much as I would love any person caught up in any kind of sin and hope you can see the Bible’s clear message on the subject. I pastored for several years before coming aboard Living Waters, and met many people who had struggled with same-sex attraction. I realize that desire is not something you or the people who frequent your website chose. Few would choose a desire that would ostracize them or make them feel different. I realize it is a natural desire, however, not every natural desire is right.

I have been asked, “Was I born gay?” And the quick answer is in a sense, yes… we were all born with a sinful nature that naturally inclines people toward sin. Some incline toward stealing more than others, some anger and rage, some adultery or fornication, some have great struggles with lying, and some with homosexuality.

The strong temptation never means that’s how God designed you to be or that you were meant to act on it. An objective view of Scripture teaches that God calls homosexuality sin, and God longs to break us free from sin not bring us into bondage to it. If you have any questions or if I can be of any help or if you just want to talk about it, please don’t hesitate to write back. I sincerely wish you the very best. I am praying for you.

You did not answer the specific question I asked
by: Rick Brentlinger

Hi Allen-

Thanks for getting back to me. Your reply does not answer the specific question I asked, which follows.

If your email to me is because Ray has personally told you he changed his mind and has instructed you to relay his request that we remove the tract from the website, of course I will remove it.

If you have simply assumed, wrongly, that I posted the tract without receiving permission and you are asking me to remove it without consulting Ray, I do think the honorable thing to do on your part is to check with Ray first to see if he has indeed changed his mind so that I will know the request to remove it comes directly from him.

In plainer words, have you personally checked with Ray on this particular issue or are you taking it upon yourself to make the removal request, without checking with Ray?

Your brother in Christ,

Rick Brentlinger

No, I haven't spoken with Ray Comfort
by: Allen Atzbi of Living Waters

Hi Rick,

No, I haven’t spoken with Ray, and for practical ministry reasons I cannot make plans to. This has nothing to do with you, but rather with guarding Ray’s focus. Ray gets a very large volume of requests and emails on a daily basis, if he attempted to answer them each personally we couldn’t move forward as a ministry. Such requests and assistance and follow-ups are part of the reason why we have added additional staff.

As Ray oversees a large ministry, I have a responsibility before God to protect his time and allow him to focus on the things only he can do. I oversee the department you would need to receive permission from; if you called or emailed today, it would not go to Ray or his assistant, it would come directly and only to me.

Since you mentioned this did originally involve Ray (at a time in our ministry when the President/CEO/Leader was personally handing requests — while managing a multitude of other tasks, unable to give the quality time and reflection needed for a lengthy disclaimer), I did go the extra mile to speak with our Executive Vice President specifically about this situation.

He read our email correspondence before we spoke. We both agreed on the disclaimer previously sent. That is the final stance our ministry has on the issue. I would heartily hope you respect our ministry’s decision and with integrity honor it.

This situation makes me very sad
by: Rick Brentlinger

Hi Allen-

As I understand it, Ray is the founder of Living Waters. He gave me permission to use the tract and to my knowledge and according to what you have written to me, Ray has not changed his mind or rescinded his permission.

In spite of those facts, you, and now EZ (Ray's son in law, if memory serves), have taken it upon yourselves to rescind Ray's permission without consulting Ray, without bringing him into the discussion.

Having rescinded Ray's permission without bothering to ask him if that is what he wants, you now frame it as an issue of integrity, that I must go along with you in rescinding Ray's permission and removing the Good Person tract, without telling Ray or I can agree to an onerous and factually incorrect anti-gay statement on my website.

"That is the final stance our ministry has on the issue. I would heartily hope you respect our ministry’s decision and with integrity honor it."

This situation makes me very sad. As I see it, I have a third choice which you did not mention: to accept the faithfulness of Ray's word and stick with Ray's permission until he notifies me that he has changed his mind (or I can allow you to countermand Ray's decision without telling him).

For me, integrity requires that I trust Ray's word that it's okay to use the Good Person tract on my website.

Your brother in Christ,

Rick Brentlinger

This is now coming directly from Ray Comfort
by: Allen Atzbi of Living Waters

Hi Rick,

I’m sorry for taking a while to reply. We’ve been extremely busy around the ministry.

To follow up with you, Emeal Zwayne (EZ), our Executive Vice President, spoke directly with Ray about this matter and read him the statement that must be posted if you are to keep the tract on your site. Ray wholeheartedly supports our decision and this has now become his own official request. This is now coming directly from Ray.

However, Ray has requested that 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 be added to the end of the statement. So here is how it now must read:

“These resources have been posted with permission from Living Waters, upon clearly stating that their organization completely agrees with the Bible’s teaching that homosexuality is a sin, and that homosexuals will not inherit the Kingdom of God. Living Waters unmistakably believes that it is a contradiction for someone who claims to be a homosexual, or who practices homosexuality, to also claim that they are a Christian. All homosexuals must repent and place their faith in Christ in order to receive forgiveness and everlasting life. –1 Corinthians 6:9-10”

If you do not wish to post this along with our resources (at every place they are posted), we ask you to remove all resources or references to our ministry resources from your site.

Thank you.

I have removed the Good Person tract from our website
by: Rick Brentlinger

Hi Allen-

Thanks for getting back to me. This is a most disappointing situation. What you, EZ and Ray Comfort are doing, in effect, is making a decision to intentionally withhold the glorious gospel of Christ from the gay community.

Our website is the largest conservative gay Christian website on earth. We reach more than 45,000 people in 180 countries each month with the life-saving gospel of Christ.

Having the Good Person tract on our website, (with Ray's permission until now), resulted in about 12 people getting saved, who took the time to let us know they got saved. The real results are undoubtedly much greater because many people who get saved through a website witness never bother to write.

From the disclaimer you guys wrote, it is clear that none of you has bothered to study 1 Cor 6:9 in context. It is odd that from a position of relative ignorance, you seem so sure you are right and we are wrong.

Nevertheless, at Ray Comfort's request (as relayed by you), I have removed the Good Person tract from our website. I have not removed the YouTube videos since those are freely available for anyone to display.

Your unkind attitude and the unkind attitude of Living Waters saddens me but it has also been instructive. The lack of spiritual discernment you've shown, the lack of Christian grace and the incredible animosity of Living Waters and Way of the Master toward the gay community is discouraging. My prayer for you, EZ and Ray Comfort is:

Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.

you are the one that is lost

You can explain it away all you want sodomy is wrong and perverted. You need to repent now or pay for it when your burning.

You are going straight to HELL!!!!!!!!
by: Nathanael

First Name: Nathanael

Country: United States

Your Comments: I am very sad that you are this confused. Just reading your website makes me want to vomit as does God. In the Bible where GOD destroys Sodom and Gomorrah,it states exactly that the men of sodom,also know as sodomites,wanted to know the two male angels carnally.

If you don't know what carnally means,it means sex. In this case homosexual sex. Ok lets say sodomites are not homosexuals,it clearly states in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10,that sodomites are on the same level as homosexuals.

Neither are going to heaven. Sorry buddy but unless you turn from your wiked ways,you are going straight to HELL!!!!!!!

Rick's comment: Ignorance is not a fruit of the Spirit, Nathanael. As you grow in the Lord, I believe you will be less strident and more scriptural in your approach to God's truth.

Would you review my book?
by: Mark Green

First Name: Mark
Country: United States

Your Comments: Rick, Blessings to you for what you are doing for the Kingdom. I would appreciate your consideration in reviewing my book: "Here am I. Don't Send Me! A Personal Revolution"— endorsed by Pastor David L. Thomas, lead pastor of one of the largest AG churches in the country.

The text from the back cover of the book may help you determine if this is a book you'd be willing to take a look at. I appreciate your time!

Evangelism? Witnessing? Never! No way!

Those were author Mark Green's sentiments as a follower of Christ. For 20 years, he remained convinced that personal evangelism was for others and would not—could not—ever be for him! But a personal revolution took place, thrusting him into a year-long commitment to share the Gospel every day.

In this book, Mark takes you on his personal journey from an introverted, silent Christian to daily witness.

He provides practical instruction for sharing the Gospel with anyone and candidly shares his own fears, struggles, and failures as a witness for Christ. Packed with dozens of real-life conversations and down-to-earth commentary from his experiences speaking with thousands of people, his insights will help you overcome the excuses and hesitations many have about Jesus' final instructions to believers, while exposing what is missing from many churches—a passion for the lost.

Discover for yourself just how "ripe" the harvest still is, and experience the exhilaration of seeing someone's eyes opened to the Good News.

Will anyone come into the Kingdom because they ran across you?

Homosexuality is sin
by: Mark Green

First Name: Mark
Country: United States

Your Comments: My comments to you were misdirected (and I mean no malice). I spoke WAY too soon before seeing what you were about. I honestly thought the title of your website was supposed to be an eye-grabber of some sort. The landing page I came across was about evangelism and street ministry and specifically what caught my eye was your Way of the Master clips and use of the 10 commandments. (that's me...all the way).

I believe the Bible teaches (and this is what I teach as well as WOTM) that homosexuality is sin, not the appetite perhaps, but the living out of it. Just like my appetite for women is not wrong (even though its strong). I WANT to look etc. But the moment I lust; the moment I have relations outside the bounds of a God sanctioned, biblical marriage between a man and a woman, I have sinned.

I'm not here to debate with you, mostly just to say (with egg on my face) that I jumped the gun in thanking you for what you are doing for the kingdom. IF you are teaching that living in homosexual relationships is ok by the word of God, I couldn't disagree with you more.

I'm asking that you kindly honor my request not to post either of my comments on your website. Thank you. I wish you THE BEST that God has for you.

Rick's comment: I published your comments because I believe it is dishonest to hold the anti-gay views you hold and to make comments like you make and then try to keep your views secret.

I don't mean this in a snarky way
by: Mark Green

Rick, (I don't mean this in a snarky way) I'm not a Biblical scholar, but I feel its very very safe siding with multiple centuries of consistent scholarly interpretation of the Bible on this issue—from every denomination and Christian bent. You just simply don't have anyone of noteworthiness standing with you on your side. (again, sounds snarky if you read it that way, but that's absolutely not my intention).

The Spirit bears witness in me (and in you as well). The law of God is written on every man's heart. Our conscience tells us what's right and what's wrong. The obvious physical design of man and woman and what happens when the two become one flesh tells us what's right and proper. Romans 1 says that you are "suppressing the truth in unrighteousness".

Just as it can be really wrong to go along with the crowd (Mat. 7:13-14). I pray you give this some thought. It's also really unwise to be standing (virtually) all by yourself, taking the stance, "We're right and everybody else is wrong". The (scholarly) burden of proof is on you. I sincerely pray that the Truth will set you free. Blessings, Mark Green

Rick's comment: My thoughtful fact-based answer to Mark Green.

I can tell you are closed on this issue
by: Mark Green

Sorry but this will prove to be unsuccessful on your part. And by your lengthy reply, I can tell that you are also closed on the issue.

Sincerely, Mark Green

Rick's comment: You refuse to discuss it but I'm the one who is closed on this issue? No problem, I understand Mark. Sadly, I understand.

To Felipe - Ignorance is not a fruit of the Spirit
by: PICO

I cannot believe this website. haha. Its actually a bit funny that homosexual folks can twist the word of God around so much. Didn't the book of Revelation speak of false prophets in the end times? I think this website is the epitome of that!

But, you still have time to repent brother.
I would do so and try to overcome this strange obsession with homosexuality. It's just not normal whatsoever.

I'm a bit sick and tired of people saying they were born a gay. Because NO YOU WERE NOT! It seems most men that are homosexuals have issues with thier father, or don't know thier father. Or have been molested in youth.

Rick's comment: It comforts me to know that you have more information than Jesus on this issue, since He taught in Matthew 19:10-12 that gays are born that way.

It is the same with loose women. Father issues. It normally seems to stem from neglect of love at a young age. And then for attention, you become a homosexual, being super flamboyant, or an undercover homosexual. Whatever it may be it stems from something. And that something is not of GOD. I just don't see how a man can not be attracted to a female? But then again, I haven't been molested, and I grew up with a great father and mother and in Church.

You homosexuals need to dig deep and find the source of your logic. Why are you attracted to the same sex? Because I can almost be sure it was your childhood that your upset about. Your not a homosexual naturally. Dig deep, and you will see what God truly made you for.

Dominus Vobiscum, Felipe

Rick's comment: Dominus vobiscum, a Latin phrase meaning "The Lord be with you," is a blessing traditionally used by Roman Catholic priests.

I encourage you to learn about justification by faith according to the Bible instead of according to Roman Catholicism. Your eternal soul depends on it.

This website is poison
by: Wayne Cloete from South Africa

First Name: Wayne

Country: South Africa

Email - deleted so as not to embarrass Wayne

This website is poison. It's actually a laughing stock. You are fooling yourself if you believe the things that are on this site. I am totally flabber gasted! the saddest part is that you are stealing true faith from people that are seeking God.

Away from me goats is what the bible says about this stuff you believe. Homosexuality is immoral evil and perverted. You are one twisted puppy my friend. May God forgive you and open your eyes.

Shame on you with your rainbow rings and all that rubbish! Go read your bible properly! Sad! Thank the lord for places like exodus international and for the people who have the holy spirit dwelling in them and who know how to interpret Gods word properly.

Rick's comment: Great idea about rainbow rings Wayne. Thanks for suggesting that. I believe rainbow rings would be a good fund raiser for us.

by: Douglas B

If you profess Jesus Christ as your savior and
are still a practicing homosexual there is a
perverse thing being acted out. Pray it will be taken from you. Anything is possible through Christ who strengthens you.There is nowhere in the Word of GOD does it say it is ok or acceptable to live out any form of homosexuality. It is clear God hates that abomination.

Rick's comment: Hi Douglas B - May I suggest that you need to read and study your Bible instead of blindly accepting everything your pastor tells you? No really, I'm serious. YOU need to read and study your Bible, 2 Timothy 2:15.

I believe in you, Rick!!! :)
by: Floricello Braithwaite

Hi Rick! I am writing to you to express how I feel regarding you and your precious web site. Everything is so amazing inside you, and I know that… I’m 21 years old and a gay person, and I believe we are not condemned. The bible doesn't and never Jesus Christ. Instead, Jesus loves you, me, us! Let me share to you these precious verses from Romans 8:1

“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus”.

Romans 8:31 “What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” and

Romans 8:34-35 “Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died —more than that, who was raised to life —is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us; who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?”

It makes me so sad because people of today didn’t even realize that they are using the Holy Bible to condemn us! They actually are condemning us on their own words, and they use the name of Jesus Christ to destroy and degrade their fellow Christians.

I think it would be better not to answer or give even a reply to those people who makes you down, as long as we know that God is on our side.

Just always remember, Rick, that I’m here to support you and your web site! I’m here to give you strength and tell them that we are also humans just like them, that we also have hearts that are loving and caring, and they don’t have the right to judge other people! I hope for your reply, and I hope I motivated you a lot!

Rick's comment: Thanks Floricello, for your love and enthusiasm and encouragement! I hope we can meet someday. Please take advantage of my FREE Bible studies on the FREE Downloads page.

Gay Christians must learn basic Bible doctrines and what the Bible says in context so that we CAN give an answer to everyone who ask us about the hope that is in us. "Christ in you the hope of glory."

Praying for people like you...
by: A Christian

so that you would shed your ignorance, whether willful or otherwise, of God's Word.

It is true that God LOVES sinners due to His mercy, but it is also true that He HATES sin.

And it's so easy to see, from a discerning Christian's viewpoint, from the Holy Bible that homosexuality is a sin and like all sin - abhorred by God.

Because homosexuality is sin and I can easily prove this from the Holy Bible, i.e, if you are interested to know what the Word of God says. Otherwise, we just pray for you, with patience and love.

my email is, if you want to genuinely understand what Sola Scriptura says about this evil of homosexuality.

Rick's comment: You display astonishing ignorance and incredible arrogance. Having never studied the verses which you believe condemn gays, having no idea which Hebrew and Greek words are used, having never read ancient commentaries on the verses, having never read ancient history to discover the cultural historical and religious context, you assume from your ignorance that we are wrong and you are right.

Your assignment for this week is to memorize 2 Timothy 2:15 and discover what it means. God holds you responsible for not only knowing this verse but obeying it. Here's a hint: Paul was instructing Timothy to always interpret scripture in context.

God bless you my young friend. Ignorance is curable and while we disagree on the gay issue, I believe our precious Lord will lead you into truth if you study and respond to what the Holy Spirit shows you.

Why not try to understand us?
by: Floricello Braithwaite

It’s so sad that a lot of people of these days still insist that homosexuality is a sin… I’m so sad that a lot of people today are products of religious bigotry. I’m writing to this site for those people who are always against homosexuality. Why don’t you try to understand our feelings and our emotions? All we need is love, strength, understanding and acceptance. That’s all!

Why do you use the bible to persecute us? That’s a religious harm! Bible teaches us about love, NOT CONDEMNATION! Jesus Christ doesn’t instruct us to use the bible to condemn other people, BUT TO INSPIRE US! Actually, JESUS VIRTUALLY SPEAKS NOTHING ABOUT HOMOSEXUALITY! Such clobber passages are used to condemn homosexuals for centuries! Clobber passages in the bible are products of mistakes in translation.

There are only two, but only two commandments given to us by God. (1) Love God with all your heart, with all your mind and with all your soul, and (2) Love your neighbor as yourself. I believe God is love; He doesn’t think anything else but LOVE.


Don’t you even realize that homosexuality is part of the entire human history? Whether Asians, Europeans, Americans, Africans, or any other races of the world, homosexuals exist! Didn’t even you realize that homosexuals are also part of God’s creation? We, as LGBT people are also creations of God.


Don’t you know that there are scientific evidences already existing that homosexuality is part of God’s plan and creation? To Rick: Keep up the good work! GOD IS ON OUR SIDE!
From: “your biggest fan”

Rick's comment: Hi Floricello - Thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll read our Gay Christian FAQ and go through our FREE Bible studies on the FREE Downloads page. I removed the off-topic links - I'm very picky about what I link to here and do not allow people to post links in most cases.

Gay Christians believe the Bible from cover to cover if they are disciples of Jesus. A real disciple of Jesus believes what Jesus believed.

Anti-gay theology is a cult
by: Ismaila Singley

I am so tired of anti-gay theology. It is a cult. You haters do not have the moral right to judge gays. You guys will feel so stupid when Judgment Day comes and God receives saved gays into Heaven.

Nov 30, 2012
I agree with Ismaila Singley
by: Floricello Braithwaite

Anti-gay Christians always made LGBT people as outcasts, while Jesus Christ always embraces the outcasts.

They just can't accept that homosexuality and bisexuality are normal and a natural human trait just like heterosexuality.

I mourned because church became a place where prejudice was born, nurtured and has been promoted!

I appreciate people who are not religious. They truly understand gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders, unlike religious people who do nothing but judge, curse, condemn and dictate whatever they think to be the right thing but they never understand the feelings of others.

I believe that gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders are children of God if they trust Jesus Christ as their Savior like anyone else. But because of church's teachings that God hates them, many gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders chose to end their lives. Religious people never knew they actually committed murder!

For me, calling themselves "Christians" while they made other people as outcasts doesn't make any sense.

My love for gays is fake
by: Anonymous Bozo

Rick's comment: It is impossible to make up the weird disjointed comments people send us. Here is another one.

hi look its good your teaching and yes god is love but you dont understand the repentence part . when you beleive on the lord you repent what dose repneting mean it means to stop or sins to stop what we were doing before we beleived ,you cant carry on in sin other wise whats the piont of jesus dying for us when he dosent mind us still sinning, come onnnnn your teaching this piont wrong to people, when you repent and get forgiving you will receive the holy spirit and the holy spirit will guid you on the rest of your life to not sin again dident you read when jesus said when he returns he is going to gather his holy people from the four corners of the earth, do you think a gay person living in that sin is holy, i dont think so as you know what god did to sodam and gommarah for the sexual acts, god said no homosexuals, murderes, liars, drunkards, idolworshippers, theifs and so on will enter his kingdom , did you read that nothing that sins can enter gods kingdom as god is holy thats why he told us be holy as he is holy, please please dont teach people that they can carry on sinning that god will raise you up on last day, other wise we should all sin live a great sinful life because were saved no matter what god loves us, false when you repent thats it you pray out to god for forgivness of all your dirty rotten sins, and he will forgive you because yes he dose love us but then after repenting you must carry on the walk of righteousness , the holy spirit builds you up in a holy way you must walk gods path not the devils anymore as you are not a slave to sin anymore but a slave to righteousness other wise whats the piont of repenting, please teach the truth god is holy and turns his face from sin dident all the deciples do the same as they were sinners but onced saved they walked in rightousness from there on when a gay person belive and repents he must stop this filty act and change, he has to really want god and love god to change as god made adam and eve not adam and steve and yes we are all sinners but thats why god died for us that when he calls us he calls us to repentence just like he told protitutes not to sin no moreeeeeeeee amen

David was not gay
by: Anonymous

I am distressed for thee my brother Jonathan: very pleasant hast thou been unto me: thy love to me was wonderful, passing the love of women.

This is not proof that David was gay.
passing the love of women may be talking about friendship which is a kind of love which is above sexual love. If David was gay what about this:

2 One evening David got up from his bed and walked around on the roof of the palace. From the roof he saw a woman bathing. The woman was very beautiful, 3 and David sent someone to find out about her. The man said, “She is Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam and the wife of Uriah the Hittite.” 4 Then David sent messengers to get her. She came to him, and he slept with her. (Now she was purifying herself from her monthly uncleanness.) Then she went back home. 5 The woman conceived and sent word to David, saying, “I am pregnant...”

26 When Uriah’s wife heard that her husband was dead, she mourned for him. 27 After the time of mourning was over, David had her brought to his house, and she became his wife and bore him a son. But the thing David had done displeased the Lord...

7 Then Nathan said to David, “You are the man! This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: 'I anointed you king over Israel, and I delivered you from the hand of Saul. 8 I gave your master’s house to you, and your master’s wives into your arms. I gave you all Israel and Judah. And if all this had been too little, I would have given you even more. 9 Why did you despise the word of the Lord by doing what is evil in his eyes? You struck down Uriah the Hittite with the sword and took his wife to be your own. You killed him with the sword of the Ammonites. 10 Now, therefore, the sword will never depart from your house, because you despised me and took the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your own.’

It doesn't seem that David was gay at all.

Rick's comment: David may have been bisexual or gay. I believe it makes more sense to believe he was bisexual.

Show the Love that Christ Showed Us
by: Anonymous

I think that you believe what you are doing is right. I think that you truly want to help others. But there are people commenting that genuinely care about you, and you make fun of them and tell them that they are arrogant, ignorant, and unintelligent. Whether the people who tell you to repent are right or wrong, they mean well, and you lash out at them. Christians are supposed to show love, and you respond with hatred.

Gay people should be treated just the same as heterosexuals. While I do not believe that a homosexual lifestyle is Godly, I think that we should try to treat everyone with love. These people are not commenting because they are discriminating against you, they are commenting because they believe that they are saving you from hell. If someone presents an intelligent, respectful argument, it should be responded to in the same manner. I understand that it must hurt to be told that your lifestyle is sinful, but please try to understand that these people would not say something so hurtful if they didn't think that it could potentially save you from hell.

Right or wrong, we are trying to help, and I ask that you treat us with respect.

Rick's comment: It IS loving to tell the truth. I speak the truth because I love Jesus and I love His truth. I have never answered anyone who comments on this website with hatred. That you believe I have indicates you are unable to discern between truth and hatred.

I get thousands of emails and comments. Many of them are angry, belligerent, intentionally obtuse, willfully ignorant. You assert that they are only trying to witness to us. Since I am a saved, born-again, consistent soul-winner who passes out tracts and witnesses for Jesus every week, I am well-qualified to know when someone is trying to witness vs. venting their spleen at a group they despise.

I am not one who suffers fools gladly, Proverbs 26:3-4. I respond to truth, to what the Bible says in context. People who have never studied the gay issue yet who are sure they know more than I do on this topic, need a bit of correction. That is what they get here.

When Harry Truman was President, people used to yell, Giv'em hell Harry! He often responded:

I'm not giving them hell. I'm telling the truth and they think it's hell!

That is what often happens here. People who refuse to study and read the Bible in context, do not like the truth I present here so they think I'm giving them hell.

Time to grow up people! If you're saved, when you hit the judgment seat of Christ, Romans 14:10-12, 1 Cor 3:11ff, you will face the great Judge of the universe. He doesn't care two cents what your opinion is about anything. Our Lord Jesus Christ cares about truth. Do you?

You Have Missed My Point
by: Anonymous

I did not say you were wrong. I believe you are, but that is not my complaint. My complaint is that you mock, ridicule, and insult loving people who are trying to help. The truth is a good thing, but you can still treat people with different opinions with respect. You say ignorance is not a fruit of the spirit, but love is. Why don't you act like the Christian you claim to be, and show it? I disagree with what you believe in, yet I was able to write an intelligent comment, explaining what I think. I was not rude, I did not feel the need to show disgust with you. And you try to excuse yourself bu telling me that the truth hurts? Maybe it does, but the truth can also be phrased in a loving Christian way. Calling us clowns is not a good representation of the love that Christ shows us, whether it is an accurate description or not.

Rick's comment: No really, I did NOT miss your point. Honesty and truth are not hateful. I would address you by name but like so many of your fellows, your lack the courage to use your name with your comments.

I view most Anonymous commenters as clowns. They want to diss and denigrate gays but they do it Anonymously because they lack courage. It's easier for them to take potshots at us under cover of Anonymity.

My Apologies
by: Anonymous

I was short on time in reading your first response, and it appears that I skipped your first paragraph. From what I can see, you actually did get my point from my first comment.

However, you also said that you have never responded with hatred, but only with the truth. I disagree. If you look at the comment titled

"I can do all things through Christ who strenghtens me
by: Tracy",

under the article titled "Why are you Leading God's People Astray?", you responded with,

"Your lack of understanding is clearly presented here. Thanks for stopping by."

This seemed unreasonably harsh to me.

Rick's comment: Oh please! You originally called it hatred. Now you've modified it to unreasonably harsh? Grow up and get a life and stop being silly. If Tracy wants truth, there are 800+ pages of FREE info on this website which refutes what she wrote. She didn't read it because she isn't much interested in truth.

I think that Tracy presented one of the most intelligent posts from someone trying to convert you from what they believe to be a sinful lifestyle. You have responded with counterarguments to people who were much ruder and much less reasoning behind their stance.

Maybe I am wrong, but your rude response indicated to me that you had no good response to her arguments. If this is not the case, please explain to me why you felt it necessary to insult her rather that correct her.

I have a hard time believing that this was a response made out of Christlike love for her, and wanting her to recognize the truth.

I would also like to know what viewpoints she made up and attributed to you, as you said she did in her second post.

Rick's comment: This is foolish and petty. Read the website if you want information but I'm not wasting any more time on nitpicking from Anonymous commenters.

by: Anonymous

I chose not give my name because society stabs at those who are considered intolerant. I simply said that I thought Tracy made a valid point. I changed my response from "hatred" to "unreasonably harsh" because I wanted to believe you when you said that you do not respond with hatred. Unlike most people, I am willing to concede another person's point if I find it to be legitimate. You say that you are open for discussion, but I do not really believe it. It seems that anyone who does not believe what you have to say immediately is arrogant, ignorant, and not worthy of your time.

I am willing to give you the benefit of the doubt, and I asked for an explanation. I am not mocking you; I am simply just looking to understand your motives. If you would answer these responses rather than attack them, I would be more likely to believe what you have to say. If you do not want to waste your time with me, that is fine, but I have not done anything intentionally to provoke you. I ask these questions so I can understand why you did this, rather than assume the worst of you. I personally do not have time to read 800 pages of a website that I am not sure that I agree with, and I believe that a one on one conversation with someone is much more meaningful and efficient.

Also, I would like to point out that the reason I mentioned Tracy was that you denied responding to comments without love. I was giving an example of what I considered to be counter-evidence to that. Maybe it is not, but I gave you the opportunity to say otherwise, and you refused. Instead you chose to label me as a coward because I did not give my name. (Personally, I think that it should be enough for you that I have read your articles and considered them from an unbiased standpoint. Is that not more than most of the world will do? Must I announce what I am doing to the whole world of the Internet?)

You said that you are qualified to determine whether someone is witnessing to you or acting out of hatred for a certain group. I would like to know which of these categories I fall under. Is everyone who refuses to support the gay movement acting out of hatred? From the way you respond to us, I have a feeling that that is what you believe to be true. I pity you if that is the case.

If you choose not to respond, that is understandable. All I asked is that you try to avoid using such a sharp tongue when talking about God's followers. The word "sarcasm" originally meant to tear flesh, and such speech is not glorifying to the Lord. If you want to be a good witness, I suggest that you find a way to speak your truth in a way that does not cut down others. You can tell someone they are wrong without making them feel inferior.

Finally, I ask that you pray for me. It will take much prayer before I can determine my stance on this controversial topic. Pray that God will show me the truth.

You are so deceived
by: Carlos Anderson

you are so deceived. and if you don't repent, you will be lost!! and you will spend AT LEAST 999,999,999,999,999,999 YEARS in the lake of fire!! AND ETERNITY IS LONGER THAN THAT.

the issue is that when performing homosexual acts, you are committing fornication. that's plain and simple. your body was made for GOD and the Holy Spirit. it does not belong to you. have you read that? did GOD give you permission to have sex outside of marriage? and if you are in a same-sex relationship (suppose to be married), did GOD permit that marriage. you are living a lie that the devil (Satan) has devised for you to live in.

I hope that the Holy Ghost will make you real uncomfortable in you lifestyle. I beseech you to repent before it's too late. Don't be fooled! GOD HATES SIN. AND THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH. AND HOMOSEXUALITY IS ONE OF MANY SINS. IT'S AN ABOMINATION. SODOMY IS A SIN!!

Free Range Gay Sexual Pleasure
by: Born Again

Rick's comment: I'm not sure if some commenters are on early release from the asylum but here's another one.

If the Holy Bible is saying that Gay's can not go into heaven.The the word of GOD is truth.

I don't have to read more about the Bible or do more study because the truth is in me already.

The Holy Bible is saying that Homosexual can not get into heaven.It doesn't matter if you read NKJV,KJV,NIV,NLT.or any other Holy Bible.

The Bible doesn't say that you or her as being gay person will not go into heaven.It is saying NO Active Gays can go to heaven.

There are a lot of former gays out there.Two men or two females have Gay sex with or with Jesus can not enter heaven.You must give up your Homosexual ways that feed the Devil.The Devil wants you to have Free Range Gay sexual pleasure.

It's your life live it your way.If you want to be in a Gay relationship then Heaven is out of reach.

GODS word is JUST that.But if you give up your Gay life style for the Blood of Jesus and turn away from the Devils work and will.Heaven will be.

There are many sinner out there.No one person on this earth is perfect and all fall short of the glory of GOD......But you see this is where Jesus comes in.Asking Jesus Christ into your Heart and turning away from your sinful sexual ways.Is the way into righteousness that leads to being saved.If your save why would you keep have that kind of sexual pleasure?

If God is saying that.It's true.Ask yourself this question Rick.Why were you born?...To sever God!.
To sever him is not to have same sex sexual pleasure.If you believe it is alright to do it because it's your life.Then simply say -Your doing the devils work.

So the question above is Does the Bible say Homosexual will go to hell?

The answer Dumb Rick is YES.Asking Jesus into your life and still walking down old wide path pleasure doesn't cut it.There is simply no way in hell you really understand the word of the Holy Bible without having the Holy Spirit......If you want to keep on doing it.Your dead....It's the fire for you.

I no it is hard for you to see the light.but when every that day may come you will understand the question Mr.Devil.

Yes the Bible say Homosexuals will go to hell
by: Another Crazy Ranter

Rick's comment: Even when there is not a full moon, these emails keep coming.

Okay, I haved read every comment. and I have to say, why do you think you dont like hearing the truth... Its satan telling you "No... you will not go to hell...those people don't know what their talking about.." ITS IN THE BIBLE. GAYS DO GO TO HELL. WHY DID GOD DESTROY Sodom and Gomorrah! huh?! huh?!

***Leviticus 18:22 - "Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman. It is a detestable sin."****

OBVIOUSLY, YOU TWIST BIBLE VERSES AROUND BECAUSE YOU CANNOT ACCEPT THAT YOU MIGHT GO TO HELL FOR BEING GAY. I Will pray for you. I have'd been christian my whole life. I know what Im talking about..

Look, If you don't wanna accept about Gay's going to hell... You're not living through the Holy Spirit. Hopely that evil spirit of homosexuality will get away and disappear from your life, and many people's lifes that call them self's Gay

In Genesis, Eve was created to be a companion for Adam from those verses.. marriage is a union between A MAN AND A WOMAN.

As you once said in a comment.
"You have no idea what you're talking about. You're as blind as a bat backing in backwards when it comes to gays and the Bible or marriage and the Bible."

You should honestly go talk to your pastor..
Maybe he will but some SENSE INTO YOU.

Im gonna reply your little deluded comment :

"You believe that you, a man, are part of the bride of Christ and will marry the man, Christ Jesus. Why is it okay for you, a man, to marry a man in heaven but it's not okay for me to marry a man down here on earth?"



Oh and Being not ok with all the gay marrige does not mean Im Phomophobic.


Remember You can always change through God. That's why its called being born again. Clearly, Your not even close through that step yet.

A Christian.

Being gay is the most awful sin I'm just gonna be str8 forward. You are going to Hell if your gay. You are a pervert in the worst way. It is so gross for me to see gay guys prancing around with woman clothes and woman dressing like men. Yukkkkkky! God want us to be fruitful not have you ever known a man get another man preggers or a woman get another woman preggers????? Duhhhhhh because its Not right.

Rick's comment: Two important things for you kiddo.

1. Make absolutely sure you are saved by the precious blood of Christ.

2. Speaking of people getting preggers, remember the sinfully sordid lives of your sex-crazed heterosexual christian friends. You folks have a lot of work to do in your own lives before you focus on the GLBT community.

Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand
by: Evangelist Barbara

Rick Brentlinger don't you ever read the bible the word of God to know that no idolaters, boy prostitutes, gays, lesbians, etc will inherit the Kingdom. You need to come to Jesus now and repent before it's too late.

once u die there's no chances to come back and repent, hellfire will be your eternal destination. it is a place filled with worms, demons will stab you.

But Christ has already paid the price for your salvation with his blood just repent and come to Jesus. Accept the salvation he's offering right now, don't wait, tomorrow or later might be too late. As you read this message get a bible and open it, start with the old testament and confess your sins.

Jesus is there, he loves you and he's waiting for you. Do it now please before it's too late.

Rick's comment: Hi Barbara - I am saved, born again, washed in the blood of the Lamb - John 1:29 - and sealed by the Holy Ghost till the day of redemption - Ephesians 1:13-14.

I am right now, as we speak, seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus - Ephesians 2:6. I encourage everyone to get saved by grace alone through faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ alone - no works are needed.

Jesus NEVER abolished any of the laws that God gave the prophets. This includes HOMOSEXUALITY. Matthew 5:17 "Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. God isn't going to change or bend HIS laws for anyone!

Rick's comment: LOL - I've received a flood of emails like this in recent weeks. What a strange March this has been.

I've noticed an interesting correlation which indicates that the more vitriolic the comment, the less the commenter knows about the Bible.

Greek Word defined
by: James Kjellin

So I went to Romans Chapter 1:18-32

18 But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who SUPPRESS the truth by their wickedness.[i] 19 They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. 20 For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.

21 Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. 22 Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools. 23 And instead of worshiping the glorious, ever-living God, they worshiped idols made to look like mere people and birds and animals and reptiles.

24 So God abandoned them to do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies. 25 They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen. 26 That is why God ABANDONED THEM TO THEIR SHAMEFUL DESIRES. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. 27 And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men DID SHAMEFUL THINGS with other men, and as a result OF THIS SIN, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved.

28 Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done. 29 Their lives became full of every kind of wickedness, sin, greed, hate, envy, murder, quarreling, deception, malicious behavior, and gossip. 30 They are backstabbers, haters of God, insolent, proud, and boastful. They invent new ways of sinning, and they disobey their parents. 31 They refuse to understand, break their promises, are heartless, and have no mercy. 32 They know God’s justice requires that those who do these things deserve to die, yet they do them anyway. Worse yet, they encourage others to do them, too.

NOTE: The scriptures state that it is sin. men having sex with other men is SIN. It is shameful. In fact, if you go to the original Greek you will see the same thing. Men having sex with each other is shameful and sinful. You can't have it your way. It is sinful, it doesn't change with the times. you might be able to weasel your way out of 1 Corinthians 6 and the other scriptures, but its in plain English and in the Greek it states "men with men having sex is shameful and sinful" Verse

verse 26-27 "26 That is why God ABANDONED THEM TO THEIR SHAMEFUL DESIRES. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. 27 And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men DID SHAMEFUL THINGS with other men, and as a result OF THIS SIN, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved.

you can argue all you want. You can call me a clown like last time, but you cannot argue with Romans 1:26-27 especially because the original Greek points out the same thing. I researched it, just double checked it now and it is plain as day. You are now in rebellion with God, your lifestyle is. Repent of this wicked, shameful and sinful lifestyle.
surrender your gay and lesbian lifestyle today and encourage others to do so as well using romans 1:18-32.

Rick's comment: Hi James - this is about the fourth or fifth comment you've made yet you have not proven your case. I go into great depth on this website about the meaning of Romans 1:27-27.

The Scriptures themselves as from the original Greek prove you wrong. No more arguing. Even Ray comfort and his ministry stated you were in sin. They would not agree with you. Men having sex with men, same with women and women are evil. You are in denial and only God can change you. You have a seared conscience I just hope and pray that you repent and turn from this wickedness before you die.

Marriage is bet a man and a woman
by: JC

Rick's comment: This incoherent gem arrived Sunday afternoon, August 3, 2014

As God made the man first, he found man was alone, and went ahead and a created a woman or wife to him.In the natural God did create a man for another man, or a woman for another woman to have sex with each other. As the devil saw fit, he used God LOVE to cover up, the man's abomination. Making The man and woman believe that God love is so great that forgive their abomination.

God himself destroyed with fire a town that believed in sodomism, the complete town full of Gays and Lesbians,were burnt because they were an abomination to Him. Because Of God love, it does not mean you can claim, of God loves me, and my my gay family..No, you can not use God love to do something that is an abomination to your creator. You can try to make it legal on earth, but GOD do not approve of abomination. THE DEVIL DOES.

Country: United States

Your Comments*: Think you know the Bible? Better read it again. You missed MORE than a couple of references in your attempt to suggest the Bible says nothing about homosexual behavior being wrong. In fact, it's QUITE clear in these two examples- Romans 1:26-27 & Leviticus 20:13 (in which Hebrew men who commit such acts are to be put to death, according to ancient Hebrew law). You conveniently leave those out in your defense of a sinful way of life.

Rick's comment: Haha - Hi Phil - Thanks for writing to me. I have an extensive section on my website about Romans 1:26-27, beginning on this page.

Hi Shirley!!!!

You people are Sick, you really think your leading people to God but the fact is your telling them its okay for them to sin. it is not okay to be gay, lesbian transgender. It Clearly States that its an Abomination. The Fact is You People are perverting the Word of God.

I can Guarantee that you will burn in the Lake of Fire for all Eternity. You know doubt have the Spirit of the Antichrist. You and this ministry can Burn, just like the Homosexuals that lived in Sodom and Gomorrah.

David and johnathan
by: I need help

Rick I love your work!,but I have some basically I was searching the Internet about how people felt about king David and Jonathan relationship,and some guy did a review on your page about them on here saying that you "twisted" the story (they are so arrogant when they respond to gay christians)..he said the word twain was not "by two" but meaning sauls "second daughter" basically he's refuting that David was already sauls son-in-law because Saul offered David a opportunity by his daughter. So in his mindset he saying you are wishful thinking (I don't believe that about you). He basically said "why would Saul offer his daughter if David was already his son in law?" Please Rick I'm scared that my belief in David and Jonathan is wrong and I really just find it hard to believe that after all this info,they were just "friends"...I don't understand why homophobes find it so hard to believe God could approve of a same sex relationship.

Rick's comment: Thank you for your kind words and support. The best way to learn about David and Jonathan is to read the Bible - 1 Samuel 17 to 2 Samuel 1.

Online commentaries on 1 Samuel has the best collection of online commentaries on 1 Samuel. Bible commentaries on David and Jonathan sometimes provide a bit of the spiritual flavor of their relationship.

The next best way is to Google David and Jonathan and read everything you can find, both pro and con. Ask the Lord for insight about the D-J relationship.

It also helps to use Bible study sites like Blue Letter Bible to look up Hebrew words and their meanings.

I have a number of pages on my website about David and Jonathan. You can use my Search at the top left of each page, to find pages about David and Jonathan. Hope this is helpful.

Rick's comment: This gem of an email arrived on January 25th, 2016. He used a fake email addy and probably a fake name. What causes a man to make such insulting statements while lacking courage to put his name with his vitriol? Sodomites in the Bible are never gays or lesbians.

Abandon your sin and then perhaps you can be saved. But to choose your sodomy fetish over God? How could you ever be called a Christian? You deluded fools.

How can i accept my self
by: chris

I have kinda accepted my self but i am having trouble convicing myself that it is ok to be gay. i thought i was done with my depresion a year ago when i ws happy and now it is back and i cant seem to find a way to convince myself that it is ok.

Rick's comment: Hi Chris - God's truth is the primary basis on which you should convince yourself that it's okay to be gay. I've never understood why gays who agonize over this will spend thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours seeing counselors and psychologists and psychiatrists yet they refuse to read and study the Bible in context.

This website provides hundreds of pages of FREE information online to help you understand the clobber passages and why they do NOT condemn gays and lesbians. This website also provides hundreds of pages of FREE Bible studys which you can print and work your way through with an open Bible.

If you are saved, Ephesians 2:8-9, then God has a plan for your life, Ephesians 2:10. May I kindly encourage you to read the New Testament from Matthew to Revelation, preferably in the old King James Bible. Read the NT at least four times while also working your way through the FREE Bible studies on my FREE Downloads page.

That will make a radical difference in your life and you will get saved or, if you're already saved, you will start growing spiritually as you obey the leading of the Holy Spirit and the written word of God.

May God bless you Chris - Please keep in touch and let me know what God is doing in your life.

What must I DO to be saved?

You do realize that you are the blind leading the blind don't you, of course not you are blind.

I won't get on here and quote scriptures to you, you can read for yourself what scriptures say about homosexuals, these scriptures have no hidden messages behind them. These scriptures are to the point and also give the consequence. WAKE UP

Rick's comment: Hi Jason - I love comments like yours because they show how little you know about the Bible. When a man says, "I'm not going to quote scripture to you..." I know he is making it up as he goes, without any scripture in context which supports his opinion.

One Truth
by: Janelle

It is curious as to how you demean and put down all who disagree with you... just like you say they do to you. That doesn't match up with the God of the Bible. I could call you a clown.. a fairy.. but what good would that do? I will tell you that God loves you.

Rick's comment: Hi Janelle - I encourage you to memorize Proverbs 18:13 and take it to heart.

"He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him."

An honest reading of my responses to comments contradicts your description.

But you can not change His word to make yourself comfortable or to give you a license to keep on sinning. God detests homosexuality. That is why He detested the acts done in Sodom and Gomorrah so much that He destroyed those places.

Rick's comment: This website answers your misinterpretation of scripture. For example, The Sodom story in Genesis 19 has never been about gays or homosexuality.

That is why He detested the anal sex done as sacrifices to the false gods such as Molech, Ashtoreth and others that He ran it's practice out of the land. See, these people came up with a reason to feel comfortable doing what God detests as well. God created man and woman to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth. You and your male partner will NEVER do that without some man made assistance.

Rick's comment: Like so many who comment here, you have no idea what the Bible says in context. For example, Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13 describes ancient shrine prostitutes, not gays and lesbians.

The God of the Bible, the ONLY TRUE GOD says in 2nd Timothy 4: 4 -5 that people will twist His word to say what their itching ears want to hear and they will gather around them preachers willing to preach it instead of preaching God so they can do what they want to do (feel ok about sinning) instead of doing what pleases God!

Rick's comment: Since you are the one taking verses out of context and then basing your false teaching about gays on verses you've taken out of context, you are the one heaping to yourself teachers, having itching ears...

And Romans 1: 24-28 clearly explains that homosexuality does not please God!

Rick's comment: I have about 28 pages explaining Romans 1 on this website plus another 188 pages of verse by verse commentary on Romans chapters 1, 2 and 3. If you are interested in truth, I hope you will take time to read that information.

There is no excuse for you continuing to believe false teaching about Romans 1 when God's truth is available to you.

Truth about Romans 1

I urge you, if you really have accepted Christ, to read and interpret the word by the Holy Spirit in you so that you will stop interpreting it with your own reasoning, in order to make it convenient for you to continue to do what you want to do, calling good evil and evil good, calling truth a lie and a lie, truth. You are causing others to fall into sin.

Rick's comment: Why do you assert that since I disagree with you on the gay issue, I am probably not saved?

It is weird to have people who don't study the Bible in context present anti-gay false teaching based on verses they've taken out of context and then piously encourage me to study the Bible so that I will agree with their false teaching.

That being said, even though I am heterosexual only, there is no sin that God condones so, anything I do that doesn't line up is sin as well. Be it lying, gossiping, cheating, whatever. So we should all strive to put off every sin that hinders and distracts while grace is still being offered to us. We should continue to let God sanctify us so that we can be vessels of honor. Light. Salt. So that maybe someone may hear the real truth and repent and be saved and let God sanctify them as well.

I will never pray that God allows you to keep sinning, so I won't say I'm praying for you in that sense. But I will pray, right now, that you break free, that you come into the knowledge of the truth and that we hear you publicly admit that what God says is true and there is no way to twist it!

And if you disagree with me, so be it... but show more integrity, MORE CHRIST LIKENESS than to call me names for disagreeing with you! We can disagree and continue to live in the same world, in a civil manner. BY THE WAY, I only stumbled onto your sight while reading and researching the false god Molech of Moab.... I READ MY BIBLE DAILY!!
