Will the Antichrist be a homosexual ... ?

... clearly not our words, but most definitely those of Ron Hamman, pastor of the Independent Baptist Church of Wasilla. You may remember Wasilla as the hometown of former vice-presidential candidate and now outgoing governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin.

Marvel in the theological vitriol of Rev Hamman as he posits the idea that as homosexuality is "the greatest of sins" it follows that the Antichrist would be he who sins the most. Ergo, the Antichrist would/will be gay:

"While the word “homosexual” is not in the Bible, the behavior of those who practice homosexuality, and God’s estimation of them, very definitely is. When the word came into existence I cannot tell you, but what we can say for sure is that when Noah Webster published his first dictionary in 1828, it was not included. This means that homosexuality is a modern word invented to replace the word Noah Webster did include, sodomy, defined as a crime against nature"

Would it be too churlish to point out that the word 'Antichrist' isn't in the Bible either ... ?

The reason why christian's think the devil/antichrist will be gay is because of what is written concerning the antichrist in the book of Daniel - as it is written

Daniel 11:37, "Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all." ..........

as for homosexuality not being in the bible??? maybe you not reading it it is written

“You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination” (Leviticus 18:22; see also Leviticus 20:13)......................


6:9 Do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexual offenders,
6:10 Nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor slanderers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
6:11 And such were some of you: but you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

“For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another…” (Romans 1:26-27).

“Now before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both old and young, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house. And they called to Lot and said to him, Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may have sex with them” (Genesis 19:4-5).

AS for the Antichrist........well here it is John 1 2-18 "Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour."

John 2 chap1 7Many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist.

I love religious nutbags..

They remind me why we must all practise our aim....

Rufus, you shame yourself. It's typical of liberals and other non-believers to name-call rather than debate on merits. The point Freewoman made is that the Bible is clear on homosexuality and you counter by calling people of faith 'nutbags'. We have a much easier case to call you a 'nutbag' based on what you take on faith.

Rufus you must be an atheist nut bag.

The bible says what it says. GOD said to Moses - I AM THAT I AM.
GOD 'S word says homosexuality is wrong in both the Old an New Testaments. That's good enough for me. Christians will not stone to death the gay, but we can clearly say homosexuality is a sin. We are all sinners, but all sin can be forgiven through faith in JESUS GHRIST.
