Hallmark Channel Loses Its Hallmark

It’s been interesting to see how the Hallmark Channel has vacillated with the backlash of their pulling the ads containing lesbian couples. But what’s been even more interesting, for me, anyway, is the statements made in defense of the lesbian lifestyle, example:

On Twitter, one Emily A. posted:

“A war on love is an actual war on Christmas, and everything Christ stood for. No more Hallmark in my house unless this bigoted policy is reversed.”

The problem with Ms A’s thinking, & thus statement, is that it is not Biblical. Christ did not take a stand for physical love, especially when it violates the very words he taught.

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 NASBS

[9] Or do you not know that the unrighteous will NOT inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals,

[10] nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will [not] inherit the kingdom of God.

1 Timothy 1:9-11 NASBS

[9] realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious }those who do not obey God’s teachings{, for the ungodly and sinners }the status of those who do not obey God{, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers

[10] and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching,

[11] according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God…

Romans 1:24,26-27 NASBS

[24] Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them.

> the desire for someone of the same sex is “impurity”, and to act on it “dishonors the body”

[26] For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural,

[27] and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

> the desire for & acting on same-sex physical attraction is a “degrading passion”, it is “unnatural”, it is an “indecent act”, and engaging in it is disobedience of God’s ways & results in the participating individuals being barred from God AND from Heaven so long as they continue in the disobedience.

Ms. A is only one of many who speak without actually knowing & understanding the words of God through Christ. If anyone wishes to know God, to be saved, to be a citizen of God’s kingdom, they must align their life with God’s word – we cannot change things to suit ourselves and still expect to claim that we’re righteous by His standard.
