I am not homophobic for I don't fear man no matter what condition he finds himself. In fact, that argument is even to stupid to address. Just because I do not condone the ungodly sinful lifestyles of the sexual impure, the world would try to redefine me with their definitions and labels.
However, I am Theos-phobic, because I do fear God. This means that I position myself in a Biblical awe of the One and True God, who is the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Israel.
THEOS-Greek for God
PHOBIA-Greek for fear
Matthew 10:28 KJV And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
God directs us NOT to be alarmed at the prospect of temporal death by those who can kill us physically. Instead, we are to fear God, who can destroy both soul and body forever in hell. This passage proves that the bodies of the wicked will be raised up to be punished forever.
So why do I hate sin which includes the current flood of sexual immorality? I believe in the Word of God over the changing morally of an immoral society. I fear God and what He says more than I fear the name calling of man and the pressure to compromise and to be tolerant.
My prayer is that the fear of God would once again come back to the house of God and believers would no longer bend the knee and bow to the ways of the world.
Oh God, we cry for mercy.
