Elton John's Real Problem Is
Elton John says: “Religion promotes the hatred and spite against gays.”
By David J. Stewart
Romans 1:27, “Who changed the truth of God into a lie ... And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness ... haters of God.”
In November of 2006, Elton John was interviewed by Jake Shears of The Scissor Sister's, which was published in the The Guardian. In the conversation Elton John said: “Religion promotes the hatred and spite against gays.” His attack on Christians quickly echoed around the world ...Elton John: Religion Encourages Hatred Elton John says religion encourages hatred of gays, turns people into 'hateful lemmings'
(AP) Organized religion fuels anti-gay discrimination and other forms of bias, pop star Elton John said in an interview published Saturday.
"I think religion has always tried to turn hatred toward gay people," John said in the Observer newspaper's Music Monthly Magazine. "Religion promotes the hatred and spite against gays."
"But there are so many people I know who are gay and love their religion," he said. "From my point of view, I would ban religion completely. Organized religion doesn't seem to work. It turns people into really hateful lemmings and it's not really compassionate."
John also criticized religious leaders for failing to do anything about conflicts around the world.
"Why aren't they having a conclave? Why aren't they coming together?"
John said those in his own field have been similarly lax.
"It's like the peace movement in the '60s. Musicians got through to people by getting out there and doing peace concerts, but we don't seem to do them any more," he said. "If John Lennon were alive today, he'd be leading it with a vengeance." —SOURCE
Homosexuality Brings the Judgment of God!
Increasingly, society in general is becoming hostile towards Christianity, the Bible, and all who uphold either. In the eyes of the homosexual community, Biblical Christianity MUST go!
As Elton John, and other God-hating entertainers, have slithered their way into people's hearts over the past 30 years, apostasy has increased. Satan's greatest deception nowadays is to REDEFINE God and the truth, in order to deceive the masses. Romans 1:25 warns us that God-hating homosexuals would do this, “Who changed the truth of God into a lie...”
Of course, most homosexuals would deny the allegation against them that they hate God; however, they DO hate the God of the Bible. The false god that homosexuals claim to worship is an amoral god (i.e. , a god without moral standards or principles). The very word “holy” in the Bible means “moral perfection.” In sharp contrast, sinful homosexuals such as Elton John would lead us to believe that a loving God has no problem with homosexual sex. The Word of God plainly condemns all forms of homosexual sex. Romans chapter one give a detailed explanation of the road which leads to homosexuality, and of the eminent judgment of God upon them. Don't be fooled--homosexual sex brings the judgment of God (Romans 1:32; Jude 1:7).
Don't think for a moment that the homosexual community isn't networking together in their fight against God and His Word. Recently, Rosie O'Donnell openly criticized Christianity. On ABC's show THE VIEW, at the University of Virginia, September 12th, 2006, Rosie O'Donnell stated:
“Radical Christianity is just as threatening to America as Radical Islam.”
You see... homosexuals don't mind a dead, amoral, gutless, apostate, pseudo-Christianity (which is not Christian at all). In sharp contrast, “the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12). The Bible OFFENDS the wicked, and is intended to do so!
We need not make any apologies to the heathen world for God. The unsaved world is continually looking for excuses in an attempt to justify their unbelief and sin. Let the heathen rage, God is still on His throne! If the wicked want to make excuses, then they'll be the losers tragically burning in Hell one day (but by their own choice). “In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ" (2nd Thessalonians 1:8).
The Word of God Condemns Homosexuals!
I frequently receive letters from people who say I could reach more people for Christ if my website wasn't so offensive. They are very wrong... compromise always leads to apostasy! Churches have been silent far too long about the evils of homosexuality, fornication, abortion, rock-n-roll, and booze—and America is 100 times morally worse today than 30 years ago! The USA has become mentally-ill.
Silent Christians don't draw more people to Christ; rather, they allow the Devil free reign to kill, steal, and destroy society (John 10:10). Born-again Christians are Biblically obligated to stand against wickedness (Psalm 94:16, 97:10; Ephesians 5:11). It's the Word of God that condemns homosexuals (Romans 1:32). Christians are just preaching the Word of God, as we are told to do (2nd Timothy 4:2).
The Bible is the most offensive Book ever written, and that's the way God intended it! God's Word gives us THE TRUTH! Listen to the startling Words of Jesus in John 8:45, “And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.” Jesus didn't compromise His message to appease the crowds; rather, He spoke the TRUTH, and many hated Him for it. Likewise, the Apostle Paul said in Galatians 4:16, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?”
The unsaved world tries to turn God into an amoral wimp, into a god who's love allows for sin and compromise. Nothing could be further from the truth! It is dangerous to recreate God in man's sinful, finite, and morally flawed image. God is a Holy God, who's holiness demands justice, “...Be ye holy; for I am holy” (1st Peter 1:16). God created mankind upright; but man sinned... “God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions” (Ecclesiastes 7:29). God is not to blame for man's sin and suffering. God's love NEVER supersedes His holy demand for justice.
To say otherwise is blasphemy. Yes, God loves sinners, so much that He sent His only begotten Son into the world to pay for our sins (John 3:16; Romans 5:8); BUT, that same God HATES sin. The fact that God needed to redeem mankind with His own blood (1st Peter 1:18,19) is proof of the severity of sin. So many people nowadays take sin lightly, and think that God feels the same.
Don't be fooled friend--Jesus stated that we will give account for every idle word spoken on judgment day (Matthew 12:36, “But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment”). How much more will God judge those sinners who parade their sin publicly, criticize Bible-believing Christians, and pervert the Word of God into a lie?
Jesus Hated Homosexuality!
Elton John is demented if He thinks Jesus would have been tolerant of homosexuality. What do you think Jesus would have thought about NAMBLA (the North American Man-Boy Love Association)? There is a definite connection between homosexuality and pedophilia.
I'm not saying that all homosexuals are pederasts; but MANY are (which is evidenced by all the child-molesting homosexual priests within the Catholic religion). I triple-dog dare you to show me any homosexuals who criticize NAMBLA. NAMBLA is sickening!
Although Jesus was loving towards sinners, He was NEVER acceptant of their sins. Jesus NEVER partook of their evil. Hebrews 1:9 plainly states that Jesus “HATED INIQUITY.” Jesus does love sinners, which is why He died for our sins (John 3:16); but Jesus equally hates men's sin.
In Revelation 19:13, Jesus is called "The Word of God.” John 1:1 reveals Jesus as Almighty God, the Living Word of God. It is ridiculous for homosexuals to try to separate the teachings of Jesus from the remainder of the Bible. Jesus Christ is the Divine Author of the Bible.
In Romans 8:9, the Holy Spirit is referred to as “the Spirit of Christ.” Thus, one's attitude towards Jesus Christ and the Word of God are inseparable.
Elton John tries to separate the teachings of Christ from the rest of the Bible...
According to the singer-songwriter, 59, his solution would be to “ban religion completely, even though there are some wonderful things about it.”
He added: “I love the idea of the teachings of Jesus Christ and the beautiful stories about it, which I loved in Sunday school and I collected all the little stickers and put them in my book.”
“But the reality is that organised religion doesn't seem to work. It turns people into hateful lemmings and it's not really compassionate.” —SOURCE
Sigourney Weaver stars in the pro-homosexual 2009 Hollywood movie, PRAYERS FOR BOBBY, which attempts to recruit America's churches to jump-on-the-bandwagon to support “gay rights.”
Satan Perverts the Truth to Deceive the Ignorant!
Elton John wants a god without morals, a religion without moral standards, churchianity without Christianity; BUT, the Word of God takes an uncompromising stand AGAINST homosexuality, adultery, and fornication. You can't redefine God to fit your own moral standards. I've received letters from Wiccan witches who tell me that Jesus taught love, and that I am not like Jesus. How hypocritical, that witches who reject Jesus as Savior, would dare speak of Christ's love, in an attempt to justify their wickedness. Am I not being loving because I tell you the truth?
When you love someone you tell them the truth. I am telling you the truth. Feminists are trying to justify their rebellion with the Bible. Homosexuals now even have their own Bible. Culture & Family Institute writer Al Dobras notes, “The New Annotated Oxford Bible—edited in part by pro-'gay' and feminist scholars—adopts 'gay' revisionist interpretations of Holy Scripture such as that God allegedly destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for the sin of inhospitality-not homosexual sin.” Romans 1:25 warns us that God-haters would do this, “Who changed the truth of God into a lie...”
Elton John's problem is NOT with organized religion; but rather, with God and His Word. There's no organized religion involved with preaching THE TRUTH.
I am a born-again Christian. I follow Jesus Christ alone, not men. As a God-fearing, Bible-believing, Christ-honoring, sin-hating, sinner-loving, soulwinning ,Christian—I am expected by God to contend for the faith, stand for righteousness, and fight a good fight as a soldier of Jesus Christ. I am not a “hateful lemming” (as Elton John calls Christians like me) because of organized religion...
“But the reality is that organised religion doesn't seem to work. It turns people into hateful lemmings and it's not really compassionate.”

A “lemming” is a slang term which means: “A member of a large group of people who blindly follow one another on a course of action that will lead to destruction for all of them.” Elton John thinks that Bible-believing Christians are brainwashed in the worst sense. According to Elton John's sinful philosophy, no preacher should ever preach the truth about the sin of homosexuality. To do so is to turn “people into hateful lemmings” Mr. John says.
May I say, the truth of God's Word condemns the vile sin of homosexuality, not organized religion. Any faithful preacher who rightfully teaches his congregation the evils of homosexuality is now said to incite hate against homosexuals. Nothing could be further from the truth. Preaching against sin is love. We are supposed to hate the sin; but not the sinner. I do not approve of condemning others for their sins. That is hate. I do not condemn Elton John for his homosexual marriage and lifestyle. That is not my place. The Bible, God's Law, condemns ALL OF US as guilty, hell-deserving sinners (Ecclesiastes 7:20; Romans 3:10,19-23; James 2:10). Albeit, God commands us as Christian believers to speak out against the wicked who publicly parade their sins, and attempt to homosexualize our children (Psalm 94:16; Ephesians 5:11).
I'd rather be a led lemming for God, than an intellectual idiot for Satan. Both Sigourney Weaver and Elton John blame “organized religion.” That's a key word used by homosexuals today to hide their hatred for God's Word. Instead of homosexuals admitting their hatred for the truth of God's Word, they instead use the term “organized religion” in an attempt to separate liberal apostate pro-homosexual religious groups from God-fearing, sin-hating, Bible-believing, soul-winning, Christ-honoring, churches. Satan is so subtle!
Romans 1:25 foretold that wicked homosexuals would change God's Word into a lie. Don't be deceived... gay rights has nothing to do with God's love (as PRAYERS FOR BOBBY sinfully tries to establish). Likewise, Elton John blames organized religion for turning people into lemmings. It was God's unconditional love that sent Jesus Christ into the world to pay for humanity's sins. All men are sinners (Ecclesiastes 7:20; Romans 3:10,19-23).
Elton John doesn't mind a watered-down, weak, amoral, false god; BUT he loathes the God of the Bible who hates the sin of homosexuality and has promised to judge homosexuals with fire and brimstone, just as He did Sodom (Jude 1:7; Romans 1:32). Hatred against the sin of homosexuality doesn't come from religion Sir John; but from the Creator of the Universe. “The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way...” (Proverb 8:13). Please listen to The Christian's Hate Life by Pastor Jack Hyles (please give the mp3 sermon a moment to load). Also, the Sin of Homosexuality by Pastor Jeff Owens (Windows Media sermon). God expects Christians to HATE sin and evil. In contrast, Elton John says...
“I'm going to fight for them [gay rights], whether I do it silently behind the scenes or so vocally that I get locked up.” -SOURCE (BBC NEWS, November 12th, 2006)
Elton John is the enemy of God, who's committed to fighting against God and His Word (James 4:4). It's a shame that a Godless homosexual like Elton John is willing to get locked up for a sinful cause; yet professed Christians all across America cower in fear, complacency, and could care less. Would to God that more Christians were willing to be locked up for exposing evil, preaching against sin, and soulwinning.
The Word of God makes the plainest statement concerning this whole issue in Proverb 29:27, “An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.” There will NEVER be any fellowship between genuine Christians and the wicked.
“For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ.” —Philippians 3:18
