Roberts, a breast cancer survivor, was also diagnosed in 2012 with myelodysplastic syndrome, a blood disorder caused by chemotherapy for her cancer. She credited her “girlfriend” for getting her through this on her Facebook Page.
This “coming out” received national media coverage and has been applauded by the world system as somehow being demonstrative of courage.
That is not what the Word of God says.
“Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman. It is a detestable sin.” This same standard applied to women having sex with another woman as with a man.
The Word goes on, in Romans, to describe those who practice homosexuality and lesbianism as:
“unclean’, saying they “dishonored their bodies among themselves” and are now “worshiping the creature” (Satan).
The Word also makes it clear that they are “in error” and have ‘debased minds”.
It is clear that the Word of God doesn’t paint a glorified portrait of those who are “coming out” or of the very activities for which they boast and are applauded for.
When they are “coming out”, it is spiritual rebellion against God inspired by the god of this world which blinds their mind from the light of Jesus Christ.
“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”- II Corinthians 4:4
So what does it mean when homosexuals and lesbians “come out”?
It means that person is now without moral restraint and are unashamed of mocking God in the eyes of the very world God created.
It means that person has been completely given over to a reprobate mind and has no hope aside from the blood of Jesus Christ.
It means that this person no longer has any knowledge of God and is “filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, and evil-mindedness.”
Finally, homosexuals and lesbians “coming out” means that they have decided to declare to the world their hatred of God.
I don’t see that as something to celebrate or applause. I also don’t see it as a badge of courage or honor.
It is a confirmation of one walking in damnation before our very eyes.
It is a reason for us to pray for such a person and for a nation which would exalt them for choosing against God and against their own best interests.
As for Ms. Roberts’ glorifying her same sex lover for her role in helping her to overcome cancer, God’s Word speaks to this as well:
“Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
and he saved them from their distress.
He sent out his word and healed them;
he rescued them from the grave.
Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love
and his wonderful deeds for mankind.”- Psalm 107:19-21
The Lord God had mercy upon Robin Roberts and showed her acts of kindness, in spite of her blatant rejection of Him.
I have got to believe the Lord did this to demonstrate to her that Christ died for all of us and, thus, His grace is freely available to any of us.
It is tragic that Ms. Roberts and all who are “coming out” as homosexuals and lesbians, have decided that God’s grace is not sufficient for them.
May the Lord have mercy on them and on a nation that has given hatred towards God an audience to applaud it.
