A god in their own image..

Desmond Tutu says, “I would refuse to go to a homophobic heaven. No, I would say sorry, I mean I would much rather go to the other place.”

He added, “I would not worship a God who is homophobic and that is how deeply I feel about this.”

  1. God’s word does hate that life style. He hates all sin. Loves the sinner enough to make away at the cross from them to be saved from the things he hates.

    • I might add this from Barnes commentary on Gal. 5:21, in regards to that statement.

      Galatians 5:21

      Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

      [Shall not inherit the kingdom of God] Cannot possibly be saved; see the notes at 1 Cor 6:9-11. In regard to this passage, we may remark:
      (2) This passage is full of fearful admonition to those who indulge in any or all of these vices. Paul, inspired of God, has solemnly declared, that such cannot be saved. They cannot enter into the kingdom of heaven as they are. Nor is it desirable that they should. What would heaven be if filled up with adulterers, and fornicators, and idolaters, with the proud and envious, and with murderers, and drunkards? To call such a place heaven, would be an abuse of the word. No one could wish to dwell there; and such people cannot enter into heaven.
      (4) We should rejoice that such people cannot, with their present characters, be admitted to heaven. We should rejoice that there is one world where these vices are unknown, a world of perfect and eternal purity. When we look at the earth; when we see how these vices prevail; when we reflect that every land is polluted, and that we cannot traverse a continent or an island, visit a nook or corner of the earth, dwell in any city or town, where these vices do not exist, O how refreshing and invigorating is it to look forward to a pure heaven! How cheering the thought that there is one world where these vices are unknown; one world, all whose ample plains may be traversed, and the note of blasphemy shall never fall on the ear; one world, where virtue shall be safe from the arts of the seducer; one world where we may forever dwell, and not one reeling and staggering drunkard shall ever be seen; where there shall be not one family in want and tears from the vice of its unfaithful head! With what joy should we look forward to that world! With what ardor should we pant that it may be our own!
