Tammy Faye Bakker's Unscriptural View On The Sin Of Homosexuality

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.”

What is it that gays love about Tammy Faye Bakker-Messner? Is it her camp value? Her perky, love-gushing way with words? Is it her unbridled love for all creatures great and small, gay and straight, good and evil?

Or is it simply her mascara? Gobs and gobs of mascara. ...

MW: There are many Christians who say gay is evil, that it's an abomination.

TAMMY FAYE: I think being gay is just being a person who has a different thought on life. They're just people. I don't think that God categorizes people. I went to Disneyland one time, and it rained -- it's so awful when it rains at Disneyland -- and everyone disappeared inside. And when the rain stopped and everybody came out, every single person had yellow raincoats on. You couldn't tell the fat from the thin, the rich from the poor. You couldn't tell anyone from anyone else. And that day I looked up and I said, "God, I think this is how you see us, all in yellow raincoats, and only you have the permission to look under those yellow raincoats."

Is that what the Bible says? No, not at all.

I'm not trying to be unkind or mean, but the Bible does not teach for believers to turn a blind eye to public wickedness (Ephesians 5:11). Notice that Tammy Faye doesn't provide any Scriptural support for her position on homosexuality. Homosexuality is a horrible sin; just like abortion, adultery, bowing to statues of saints, stealing, taking God's name in vain, dishonoring your parents, et cetera. Homosexuals claim that they want churches to embrace them with God's love, speaking of unity and love for all people; yet homosexuals also want pastors, Christian leaders and pastors to remain silent about the sin of homosexuality. This is the problem!!!

Ephesians 5:1-8 Plainly Teaches Believers Not to Support Homosexual Agenda

Ephesians 5:1-8 plainly, irrefutably, without argument, evidences Scripturally that Tammy Faye Bakker is WRONG...

Ephesians 5:1, “Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children.”

Ephesians 5:2, “And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.”

The following Scriptures forbid all sorts of sexual immorality...

Ephesians 5:3, “But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints.”

Ephesians 5:4, “Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.”

The following Scriptures use even stronger language, condemning homosexuals, whoremongers and sexually unclean people; saying that they have no inheritance in God's kingdom, and God's wrath is upon them...

Ephesians 5:5, “For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.”

Ephesians 5:6, “Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.”

The following Scriptures put Tammy Faye Bakker to shame, because she united with them and supported their wicked lifestyle and agenda...

Ephesians 5:7, “Be not ye therefore partakers with them.”

Ephesians 5:8, “For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light.”

The homosexual community exploited Tammy Faye, as they do others who are religious phonies. 2nd Timothy 3:1-5 warns about religious fakes who would commit all sorts of wickedness while masquerading as true believers; but 2nd Timothy 3:5 says they deny the power thereof. Romans 1:16 tells us that the power of God unto salvation is the Gospel.

Satan is a professional liar (John 8:44) and thief (John 10:10). Satan knows that the best way to corrupt society is to destroy the morals and faith in God of its youth (i.e., tomorrows adults). To do this, Satan must go after the churches, to corrupt them. So he starts by removing the word “sodomite” from the Bible completely (such as the New International Version [NIV]). By the way, homosexuals are excited about the NIV2011, just as they were about the original NIV because it removed the word sodomite (and had at least 2 professed Sodomites on the translating committee).

A true man of God will preach against all sin, including homosexuality. Every Christian believer is commanded to hate evil (Psalm 97:10). Romans 3:18 speaks of those who have no fear of God. Romans 3:18, “There is no fear of God before their eyes.” Those who fear God know that homosexuality is a sin that brings the judgment of God (Romans 1:32). Tammy Faye catered to the homosexual community; being a high-profile figure, she helped their agenda, which is why she was greatly praised in 2007 by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force after she passed away.

Although it is certainly true that we ought not condemn one another (James 4:11-12; Romans 14:10); we ought to teach that the Bible condemns sin (Romans 3:19). God's Law condemns all mankind as dirty, guilty, hell-deserving sinners (Romans 3:10). There are many deceivers in the world today.

Tammy Faye Bakker was 100% Correct on Forgiveness

Despite the bad things everyone says about Tammy Faye Bakker (1940-2007), and the shame she brought upon the name of Christ; there is a silver lining and something we can all learn from her about forgiving those who hurt us...

...Despite the bad things everyone says about Tammy Faye, and the shame she brought upon the name of Christ; there is a silver lining and something we can all learn from her about forgiving those who hurt us...

MW: How does one come to a state of forgiveness?

TAMMY FAYE: It's a choice. You ask God to help you and then you just make the choice. It's not worth living in unforgiveness. I have a saying that forgiveness is the greatest gift you can give yourself. And I gave myself that gift of forgiveness with the help of God. I forgave everyone that hurt me. Jerry Falwell, Jimmy Swaggart, I forgave all those people.

MW: But can gays people forgive a man like Falwell who has persecuted us so vehemently?

TAMMY FAYE: It's a choice, that's all it is. Forgiveness is a choice. And it's a choice you ask God to help you keep. It doesn't happen overnight. Forgiveness is an ongoing battle. And sometimes when I see Jerry Falwell my heart hurts. But then I say to God, "God I forgave him, I gave Jerry Falwell to you, you take care of him," and then I'm okay again. So he's in God's hands, he's not in Tammy Faye's hands.

MW: Clearly forgiveness is an important component of your life.

TAMMY FAYE: Yes. It's the only way you can have true happiness because unforgiveness eats you up inside. It's like an acid and it will truly make you sick. I think unforgiveness has been more people's problem than anything in the world. Because when you see somebody you are angry at, your tummy tenses up, your blood pressure goes up, your fists clench, you go into a different mode. And that's not good for the body. So people should forgive just to save themselves.

MW: Is there anyone you don't love?

TAMMY FAYE: No, not really. I love humanity. I have a heart for humanity. Ever since I was a little girl, I always wanted to help people.

MW: What about Osama bin Laden, you can't possibly love him.

TAMMY FAYE: Well, God says I have to. I don't like what he's doing at all, but God says that if we're going to serve Him, we love them through the lord. In our own selves, it's not possible to love bin Laden. That's not possible. I hate -- I detest -- what he is doing. But knowing that Jesus would have loved him, then I need to ask God to help me love him, too. ...

Sad, so sad!

The infamous Tammy Faye Bakker of the now defunct P.T.L. (praise the Lord) Club. She divorced her husband while he was in prison for misappropriating funds from P.T.L. contributors, to pay off a woman whom he had an affair with; and then Tammy became a spokeswoman for the lesbian Movement. The whore, Jessica Hahn, who had an affair with Jim Bakker went and sold her story and body to Playboy magazine for over a million dollars. Welcome to America!

Divorce Is Never Biblical

       Tammy Fake Bakker of The PTL CLUB (praise the Lord club) said she forgave her husband of adultery when she divorced him. That is so evil on her part. Although I am not in the position to judge her sincerity, I can say confidently that she sinned horribly against her husband by divorcing him. Tammy condemned her husband and decided to punish him by divorcing him. God forbids taking matters into our own hands (James 4:12, 5:9). Jim Bakker was sentenced to 45-years in prison and his wife divorced him while he was rotting in prison. I can't think of anything more evil for a woman to do.

Later Jim Bakker was paroled from prison after 5-years, but Tammy had abandoned him. Although society condemned Bakker as the scum-of-the-earth for misappropriating ministry money, adultery, and lying to contributors (they wanted him to burn in Hell); Tammy walked away like she was the victim. It was her dog too residing in an air-conditioned dog house in their backyard. Tammy squandered ministry funds just like her husband did. My point is that she had no Biblical right to walk out on her husband and divorce him, but because the public demonized him, so did his wife. I think she was a big hypocrite. The homosexual community reached out to Tammy during the ordeal, so she became a public spokeswomen for the homosexual agenda.

The entire story is a train-wreck. I'm not taking sides, nor am I condemning anyone. My point is that marriage is a commitment that is never to be broken, period. For any women to divorce her husband when his life is falling apart is evil, selfish, and of the Devil. I don't expect feminists, lesbians, and foolish women to understand anything I say, for the Bible teaches that a fool will not heed wisdom. Humans tend to categorize sins, but God says that all men are wicked sinners (James 2:10). Society demonizes people for committing certain sins, like adultery and homicide; while totally ignoring the sins of idolatry, murder by abortion, casino gambling, pornography, nudity, et cetera.

There Can Be No Harmony Between the Righteous and the Wicked!

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.”

The Bible is brutally honest, even though homosexuals aren't. Homosexuals want to unite by error; but God says to divide over truth and righteousness. Homosexuals want Bible-believing Christians who take a stand against sin to go away. The bottom line is that homosexuals who are living a wicked lifestyle against God, CANNOT live in harmony with God-fearing Christians who hate sin. Homosexuals love sin, it is their very lifestyle; whereas born-again believers who have the Spirit of God hate iniquity and detest it.

Jesus hated iniquity (Hebrews 1:9). The Bible never calls Jesus “a friend of sinner”; that's what the religious Pharisees called Him. Jesus reached out to lost sinners with the Gospel; but He did not partake of their wickedness. Jesus did NOT have a passive and relaxed attitude toward sin. Christ hated sin. It was our sins that nailed Jesus to a cross. Do you think Jesus has a relaxed attitude, that He is indifferent toward evil, and that He is complacent concerning wickedness.

The Bible commands believers to rise up against the evildoers and to stand up against the workers of iniquity (Psalm 94:16). The Homosexual Agenda is evil in every way. Tammy Faye Bakker was discredited publicly after the shame of The P.T.L. (praise the Lord) Club mess. It is a shame that she then became a supporter of the Homosexual Agenda. Witches, abortionists, homosexuals, and all other groups of rebels against God stick together. Christians are sinners, just like anyone else; but the difference is that we have chosen to live righteously with God's help, because we are saved and want to please God. Christians are not saved by doing good (Ephesians 2:8-9); we do good because we are saved (Ephesians 5:8).

God tells us to rebuke sharply (i.e., with authority) those who teach corrupt doctrines (Titus 1:13). Romans 16:17 teaches believers to identify false prophets and avoid them. The teaching that homosexuality is acceptable to God is a sin. Proverb 21:2 tells us that every way of a man is right in his OWN EYES; but the Lord pondereth the hearts. Proverb 14:14 says that the backslider in heart shall be filled with his OWN WAYS.

Every Man Did Right in His Own Eyes

Judges 21:25, “In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” Notice that every man DID RIGHT (but in his own eyes). They wanted to do right, but they wanted to choose what was right. The Bible says God must choose what is right (Proverb 3:5-7). Eve wanted to do what was right; but she wanted to decide for herself what was right or wrong. The serpent convinced Eve that she was doing right; but she disobeyed God and did wrong.

Homosexuality is wrong. Romans 1:25 teaches that the wicked change the Word of God into a lie. The wicked can say that homosexuality is good. They can promote corrupt judges to legalize homosexual marriages. They can hire homosexuals and ordain homosexual ministers. They can homo this, and homo that; but God will punish the world for their wickedness in eternity (Isaiah 13:11; Matthew 12:36; Revelation 20:11-15). 

Homosexuals are, and always will be, in any God-fearing place; a group of social outcasts (Romans 1:24-32).

The Gift of Eternal Life is Offered Freely to Homosexuals

We are saved by trusting Christ's work of redemption, i.e., through faith in His blood, to save us. Romans 3:25, “Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation THROUGH FAITH IN HIS BLOOD, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God.”

It is not our place to condemn anyone, i.e., to view someone as being a bigger sinner than we are. We are as sinful as the most vile homosexual or abortionist. James 2:10 teaches that committing even ONE SIN makes a person guilty of all, meaning that we all need to be redeemed by the Lamb of God, because we have all sinned. Whether one sin or a thousand sins, no one can enter Heaven without having their sins washed away (1st Corinthians 6:9-10); only Jesus can do that, for only Jesus has the nail-scared hands and feet. Amen!

Homosexuality Is A Filthy Sin!
