Question: You Seem To Be Harboring Bitterness In Your Heart For Homosexuals Because As You Said They Falsely Accused You.But The Bible Says You Must Forgive.Why Is It So Hard For You To Forgive?
Donald Bohanon:I’ve had two people very close to me murdered by gun violence several years ago and I’ve forgiven the perpetrators for their crimes.Because God commanded me to do so.But it was very difficult for me to do.
They weren’t on the best of terms with me because Satan had essentially turned them against me in many respects by using certain corrupt and evil individuals (which was prophesied to happen to God’s servants in the end time in some cases Matthew 10:36) but I still loved them.And understood they were just misguided and deceived. But what God has promised me is I will be reunited with them again(when they’re resurrected) if I continue in his way.And if not I wont.
I also pray daily he will have mercy on them when he judges them.So the fact he’s promised me I will be reunited with them is one thing that keeps me strong and focused.For you to suggest I haven’t forgiven the homosexuals who falsely accused me is ridiculous.The truth of the matter is you don’t know what’s in my heart,and you really don’t know who I have or haven’t forgiven.I have forgiven many for their past transgressions against me.
But that doesn’t mean I’m to keep silent in the face of this growing evil.God commands his servants to expose the evil as vigilantly as others seek to promote it. Ephesians 5:10-13.But not only are we commanded to expose evil,we are also commanded by God to hate the evil as well.Particularly abominable evil which is higher form of evil.
Not support,promote and practice abominable evil.Or call evil good and good evil .Isaiah 5:20-25,Proverbs 17:15, Psalms 97:10…Romans 12:9..Did you miss that part of the memo? The truth of the matter is if allowed to proliferate this evil will continue to grow and grow to the physical and spiritual destruction of millions of physical and spiritual lives.
The same injustice that I suffered at the hands of these deranged individuals who don’t know me at all,is the same injustice those same individuals will do, and are doing to numerous others as well.And that is the least of it and is only scratching the surface.
The level of evil and debauchery they will ultimately be engaging in will be like something out of a Stephen King movie if not exposed and corrected.We are actually heading in that direction right now with their fight to legalize pedophilia.And after that happens(and it will) it will only get much much worse if the catalyst for it all (which is the legalization of homosexual marriage)is not corrected.
The abominable evil behavior this perversion produces is clearly laid out in God’s word but many are completely ignorant to it because they have no knowledge of God’s word,and have no spiritual discernment,or just simply choose to disregard God’s word.
And that applies to many of God’s own ministers and false ministers alike.They are completely clueless and ignorant as to where this is heading.And they have no spiritual discernment or spiritual foresight in terms of where it’s going and how spiritually and physically destructive it will be.
Slanders are the least of my concerns…but the millions of physical and spiritual lives that will be destroyed are.By allowing this behavior to become more widespread and prevalent in society.And I don’t agree with the unbiblical teachings of Churches who falsely claim all of mankind will be saved.
Or those who teach a simple verbal acceptance of Jesus Christ alone,without any real change in behavior,frees you from the coming physical and spiritual destruction,and gives you the green light to freely sin in abominable ways against God.Which many of these false ministers and churches teach.
Those teachings are insane and completely unbiblical and are a result of unlearned individuals taking verses in scripture completely out of context.I know what’s at stake and I know what I’m called to do.And the fact that I’m commanded to forgive those who transgress against me,doesn’t free me from the equally important responsibility of exposing and hating the evil.I am actually obligated to do all of it.
And if you knew God’s word you would understand that yourself.I will ask you a question.You seem to be really concerned about the forgiving part,but are you applying the same tenacity and vigilance to the exposing and hating evil part that’s clearly commanded by God in scripture?
Or do you sit back and twiddle your thumbs using a fake cloak of love as an excuse to shirk your responsibility to expose,hate and judge evil,for fear of offending men… and in so doing greatly offend God?
What you’re obviously misinterpreting as bitterness and a hate for people,is in reality exposing evil and a hate for evil.Something which I am commanded to do by God ..Ephesians 5:10-13..Psalms 97:10..Romans 12:9.
Don’t misconstrue the two.I have forgiven those who murdered some of my loved ones,to suggest I am incapable of,or haven’t forgiven those who lied on me is ridiculous.And amounts to speculation based on ignorance on your part.I have forgiven them but that doesn’t mean I will be associating with them in any way shape or form.Don’t get those two things twisted.Forgiveness doesn’t mean we are to associate with evil.
And for you or anyone to hide under the fake banner of love as way to shirk your responsibility to condemn,hate and expose evil as God commands you to do,is equally as offensive as not forgiving those who have wronged you.
If you are really following God’s word,and really doing what he instructs you to do,then you should understand you probably have a lot of work to do yourself…Ephesians 5:10-13..Psalms 97:10.Romans 12:9.
It’s been my experience those who promote only the love doctrine while disregarding all the rest of the Bible,all the rest of God’s instruction,are normally living in hypocrisy and in many instances are practicing the behavior they refuse to condemn.
And or raking in tons of money and therefore don’t want to offend anyone by speaking the truth for fear their cash flow will be disrupted.That kind of person is despicable in God’s eyes.
I just hope,for your sake,that doesn’t apply to you.I’m fully aware God requires I forgive those who wrong me.But I’m also fully aware I’m required to follow all of God’s instruction,not just the one aspect that commands me to forgive.
Preaching love while standing idly by and allowing unholy evil to grow and proliferate without uttering a peep and exposing it,and even supporting and promoting it.This is considered abominable in God’s eyes and in reality is a hate for both God and mankind alike.And these offenses are punishable by death in the Lake Of Fire.Make no mistake about it homosexuality is unholy evil standing all by itself…but what it’s going to give birth to(strike that, what it’s given and is giving birth to) is demonic and satanic evil on a a whole different level.
King James Version (KJV)
10 And repayeth them that hate him to their face, to destroy them: he will not be slack to him that hateth him, he will repay him to his face.
King James Version (KJV)
8 Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee.
9 Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thine anger: the Lord shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them.
King James Version (KJV)
20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
25 Therefore is the anger of the Lord kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
Proverbs 17:15 King James Version (KJV)
15 He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the Lord.
Psalm 97:10 King James Version (KJV)
10 Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.
Matthew 25:31-46 King James Version (KJV)
31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
Romans 12:9 King James Version (KJV)
9 Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
King James Version (KJV)
10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
King James Version (KJV)
7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
