It’s mind-boggling how deceitful man can be. Take this female rabbi, for instance, who insists that God never said homosexuality was “an abomination” - but rather, the Hebrew word for “abomination” was mistranslated.
How convenient! But, hey – isn’t that what ALL “religious” folks are doing? Traditional Jews employ the “it don’t really mean that” and the “you’re in error unless you are able to read the Hebrew Bible in HEBREW and have accepted Talmud as your guide” cards to debunk “Jesus” and the whole New Testament. Christians twist the entire Torah into being irrelevant because it was “just for the Jews” (never mind that all 12 tribes AND the pagan gentiles who had accompanied Moses out of Egypt and had accepted the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, stood at Mt. Sinai to receive the Ten Commandments – which HANG ON TORAH (Matthew 22:40)). And Messianic/Hebrew Roots types will twist words and concepts to force them to fit into their myriad respective theologies.
And now we have Rabbi Debra Kolodny, Executive Director of Nehirim, the national LGBTQI group, trying to “queer the text.”
Well, why not, right? Everyone else is doing it!
The thing is, we WILL stand before our Maker on Judgment Day (Revelation 20:11-15) to come face-to-face with Him, trembling as we begin to explain our behavior on earth. At that point myriads will surely rue the fact that they refused to “come before the Lord as children” (Mark 10:15) who have put aside their limited, human mindsets and simply looked at Scripture with “pure” eyes, so they could see the “whole picture” clearly….
No matter how one attempts to twist the words, the CONTEXT reveals that homosexual acts and any other SIN is NOT acceptable:
Leviticus 18: 22 "You are not to go to bed with a man as with a woman; it is an abomination.
Leviticus 20: 13 If a man goes to bed with a man as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they must be put to death; their blood is on them.
Leviticus 18: 22 - You are not to go to bed with a man as with a woman; it is an abomination.
Deuteronomy 22: 5 "A woman is not to wear men's clothing, and a man is not to put on women's clothing, for whoever does these things is detestable to ADONAI your God.
Ecclesiates 12: 14 For God will bring every act to judgment, everything which is hidden, whether it is good or evil.
Revelation 22: 14 How blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they have the right to eat from the Tree of Life and go through the gates into the city! 15 Outside are the homosexuals, those who misuse drugs in connection with the occult, the sexually immoral, murderers, idol-worshippers, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
Regardless as to how one tries to color it, sin is sin and - according to the above - homosexual acts are SIN!
My prayer is that ALL Believers would begin to humble themselves enough to realize that our human thoughts and deeds are totally irrelevant in the grand scheme of things, and that EVERYTHING hinges on YHWH and His Word - and our obedience to Him. He gave us the choice to accept or reject Him.
This level of "scripture twisting" is mind-boggling! This woman, " Rabbi Debra Kolodny" is a certified nut! She cites Leviticus: "A man should not lie with a man", then goes on to say "How are we to be in relationships with these texts that are difficult?" DIFFICULT????? How difficult is this???? Then to add insult to injury, she goes on to argue that the Hebrew word "toevah" does not mean "abomination", but it means "a ritual practice prohibited to a people" - but then fails to see that she defined "abomination"!!!! What a loon!ReplyDelete
This is truly sad to hear. How can a person try to change the Word of Yahweh to fit what they want it to say?????? You are right we will ALL stand before Him and give an account for what we have done on this earth. The Blind lead the Blind and they both fall into the ditch. My thing is don't believe what someone teaches unless it lines up with the Word Of Yahweh. We are told to work out our salvation with fear & trembling!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks for this posting.ReplyDelete
YHWH/Yeshua: The Great One.
We all stand before His Last Judgment.
Sin is sin. No exit of Eternal Death. Ashes.
Who is the Great One?
Rabbi Yeshua is the Divine Torah (Teacher). The word "master" רב rav literally means "great one".
YHWH Abba gave His Anointed One Yeshua (Son) authority to execute judgment one day.
Yeshua is the King.
John 5:22-30 CJB
22 The Father does not judge anyone but has entrusted all judgment to the Son,
23 so that all may honor the Son as they honor the Father. Whoever fails to honor the Son is not honoring the Father who sent him.
24 Yes, indeed! I tell you that whoever hears what I am saying and trusts the One who sent me has eternal life -- that is, he will not come up for judgment but has already crossed over from death to life!
25 Yes, indeed! I tell you that there is coming a time -- in fact, it's already here -- when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who listen will come to life.
26 For just as the Father has life in himself, so he has given the Son life to have in himself.
27 Also he has given him authority to execute judgment, because he is the Son of Man.
28 Don't be surprised at this; because the time is coming when all who are in the grave will hear his voice
29 and come out -- those who have done good to a resurrection of life, and those who have done evil to a resurrection of judgment.
30 I can't do a thing on my own. As I hear, I judge; and my judgment is right; because I don't seek my own desire, but the desire of the one who sent me.
For your information: I will not call her "rabbi". Sorry!
This is her way, not the Way of YHWH! Torah do not belong her. She learns and teachs err from made-man torah. Lack of discernment. No morals. Also, She cannot have "two masters same time". Choose one: YHWH or idol
What is idol? General.
Flee from "sexual immorality" [i.e.: homosexuality, adultery, fornication, live together, ........]
They all will not inherit the Kingdom of God in 1 Corinthians 6 Chapter & Romans 1 Chapter.
YHWH is not mocked (Gal. 6:7) more deep warning: Isaiah 44 Chapter about false prophet/teacher/shepherd: "deceived heart can lead to astray....one day ashes!"
Ashes: Eternal death. No exit!
I pray she repents before YHWH suddenly comes back!
Oh Tamra, you are sooooo correct in everything you wrote! Halleluyah and bless you! I agree: I pray that lady repents before Y'shua returns, too!Delete
It seems like "Rabbi" Debra have her own perceptions when it comes to the meaning of homosexuality. If she is truly a rabbi she must know the truth more than what she knows about homosexuality. Is she trying to "twist" homosexuality alone? How about the rest of the "Thou shall not......." commandments, that i know she knows, is she trying to twist them as well? Sin is sin, we will face them all when the Y'shua returns.ReplyDelete
It is sad to hear when a Pastor or Rabbi's try to water down the words of Elohim, i'm with you in prayers.
Thank you for your prayers! It's stuff like this that proves we are IN the end times as outlined in the Books of Daniel and Revelation. There's nothing we can do about it now, because that "snowball is rolling downhill fast." The ONLY thing we can really do is get ourselves "right" with God and stand fast on HIS Word and proclaim it until the end.Delete
Thx for bringing attention to this. I've seen lots of Christians turning to Lev and denying what it says. But I thought they we just after that segment and their money you know tithes! But a rabbi also denying the Word? That's a first.ReplyDelete
Actually, it's not a first. Some rabbis are just as bad at Scripture twisting as anyone else who wishes to force God to do their will. We wrote this article several years ago that reveals how lost many are: http://therefinersfire.org/rabbinical_assembly.htmDelete
