1 2 Timothy 2: From articles by Kevin Pendergrass & David Fanning, The Gospel of Christ Newsletter, Articles & 13.03

2 » Not to love the world, worldly things or worldly ways ˃ 1 Jn. 2:15-17; Jn. 15:19; 17:24 » Some press for tolerance of specific sins ˃Isa 5:20; 1 Jn. 3:4 » Tolerance of the sin of homosexuality is being forced on Christians by liberals! ˃Gen. 19:5; 2 Pet. 2:4-10; Jud. 19:22-24; Lev. 18:22; 20:13-14 ˃Rom. 1:18-32; Jude 7; 1 Cor. 6:9-11 » Some “Christians” are yielding to the force to be politically correct » Homosexual supporters are re-writing the Bible to support their views 2

3 » “15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. » 16 But shun profane and idle babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness. » 17 And their message will spread like cancer. Hymenaeus and Philetus are of this sort, » 18 who have strayed concerning the truth, saying that the resurrection is already past; and they overthrow the faith of some.” NKJV 3

4 » Homosexuals have created a “new Bible” ˃“The Queen James Bible” +They have completely rewritten what God has revealed on the sin of homosexuality +Even omitted various important words in Divine scripture » These homosexual supporters have… ˃Added to it – Gal. 1:6-10 ˃Taken from it - 1 Tim. 1:3; Acts 20:27 ˃Twisted it - 2 Pet. 3:16 ˃Wrongfully divided it - 2 Tim. 2:15 +Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 4

5 » “ 18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: » 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” - Rev. 22:

6 » “Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.” ˃Duet. 4:2 » “What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.” ˃Duet. 12:33 » “Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.” ˃Prov. 30:6 6

7 » “ 9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. » 10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: » 11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” – 2 Jn

8 » “15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. » 16 But shun profane and idle babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness. » 17 And their message will spread like cancer. Hymenaeus and Philetus are of this sort, » 18 who have strayed concerning the truth, saying that the resurrection is already past; and they overthrow the faith of some.” NKJV 8

9 » “Rightly dividing” is from orthotomeo, from temno, ‘to cut’ and orthos, ‘straight’” » Moulton and Milligan suggest that it might be a metaphor derived from the stone mason’s art of cutting stones fair and straight to fit into there place in a building » Alford says, it is “to manage rightly, to treat truthfully without falsification” » One must “tell it like it is,” and “let the chips fall where they may.” » ASV – “Handling aright the word of truth.” ˃Marshal Patton, Truth Commentaries - The Book of 2 Timothy, p.194 9

10 » Apostle Paul commanded to hold fast to the pattern of sound words - 2 Tim. 1:13 » Man must follow God’s pattern – Matt. 7:21-23 » God created woman for man because it was not good for man to be alone – Gen. 2:18 » Created a woman for Adam – Gen. 2:21-24 » God’s divine plan from the beginning was one woman for one man for life – Gen. 2:24 » Man is told how to avoid fornication – 1 Cor. 7:1-2. ˃A man to have his own wife and the woman to have her own husband » Wife must be submissive – husband to love his wife ˃Eph. 5:22-31; 1 Pet. 3:1-6 10

11 » The front page of the “Queen James Bible” website states: ˃“The Queen James Bible seeks to resolve interpretive ambiguity in the Bible as it pertains to homosexuality: We edited those eight verses in a way that makes homophobic interpretations impossible” +www.queenjamesbible.comwww.queenjamesbible.com » We will compare the King James Version with the “homosexual perversion version” – the “QJV” A Gay Bible 11

12 Eight Perversions of the of the “Queen James Version” “Queen James Version” 12

13 » Men contrive failed attempts to defeat the Bible, to their own destruction » They do not want the truth – Jer. 36:23; 2 Pet. 3:16 ˃Jehovah’s Witnesses – “New World Translation” ˃Mormon’s – “Book of Mormon” ˃Baptists – “Baptist Manual” ˃LGBT – “The Queen James Bible” » The QJV is a purported revision of the 1769 KJV, intended to remove references to the sin of homosexuality » The QJV editors claim, “The Bible says nothing about homosexuality.…We edited the Bible to prevent homophobic interpretations. We made changes to eight verses” – ˃Question: If the Bible says nothing about homosexuality, why the need to edit it? ˃Answer: They know the Bible condemns homosexuality and will not honestly admit it! 13

14 “And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, ‘Where are the men which came into thee this night? Bring them out unto us, that we may rape and humiliate them.’” p And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.

15 » They changed the accurately-translated word “know” referring to “sexual intercourse” (Gen. 4:1, 17, 25; 19:8; 24:16; 38:26) to “rape and humiliate” ˃QKV editors attempt to lead the reader to believe that the sin in question was “brutality to strangers” and not a sexual act. +Is RAPE a sinful sexual act? YES! - cf. 2 Sam. 13:12-22 » They further explain, it was a “power-dominating act” much like what goes on in male prisons today ˃The context indicates that the “men of the city” of Sodom wanted Lot to bring out “the men” who came to Lot’s house so that they could engage in unscriptural, sexual intercourse (Gen. 19:1-11) ˃cf. similar story-context of Judges 19:22-25 » The Bible clearly condemns the LGBT agenda here! 15

16 “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind in the temple of Molech: it is an abomination” p “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”

17 “If a man also lie with mankind in the temple of Molech, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. P “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

18 » By adding “in the temple of Molech” the editors hope the reader will conclude that the abomination in question was not a male having sexual intercourse with another male, but the male was guilty of participating in pagan idolatry. » If these passages were strictly condemning sexual pagan idolatrous practices, why are heterosexual relationships not also condemned? » The context of both passages clearly shows that the list of wicked and abominable acts (“wickedness” and “abomination”) are used interchangeably: ˃Lev. 18:17, 22, 26-30; 20:13-14 ˃Primarily refers to unlawful sexual intercourse – especially homosexual behavior +Homosexual acts are singled out as punishable by death in Lev. 20:13. 18

19 “Their women did change their natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, left of the natural use of the woman, burned in ritual lust, one toward another” p “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

20 “ Men with men working that which is pagan and unseemly. For this cause God gave the idolators up unto vile affections, receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet” p “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.:

21 » Editors did not like the way the Holy Spirit conveyed inspired words ˃QJV editors wrote: “Romans is our most major editing, but also one of our most powerfully free of interpretive ambiguity; it has been made very clear, yet retains all of the content of the original.” » Rearranged the words in these verses and added “ritual”, “pagan” and “idolators” » Attempt to give the reader the impression that vile, lustful and shameful behavior in question was more about idolatrous practices rather than the unnatural sexual intercourse occurring between male with male and female with female » Romans 1:26-27 is a very graphic description of the sin of homosexuality and lesbianism » Such behavior is not only contrary to Jesus and His word, but it is even against “the natural use” of the way God designed males and females 21

22 “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor morally weak, nor promiscuous, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God” p “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God”

23 » In verse 9 the editors take away the stronger words “effeminate” and “abusers of themselves with mankind” and add the softer words “morally weak” and “promiscuous” » According to Thayer’s Dictionary, the Greek word translated “effeminate” refers metaphorically to “a catamite, a male who submits his body to unnatural lewdness” ˃The Greek word translated “abusers of themselves with mankind” refers to “one who lies with a male as with a female, a sodomite” » 1 Cor. 6:9-10 teaches that not only will idolaters, thieves, etc. (separate acts) miss out on God’s inheritance, but also those who engage in sinful sexual behaviors: Especially those who submit to sexual activity with homosexuals (catamites) and those who are sodomites (homosexuals) » It is obvious why the effeminate editors of the QJV are “soft” on these words 23

24 “For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves ____ ________, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine” p For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine”

25 » The editors do not choose the same English word “promiscuous” in this passage as they did in 1 Cor. 6:9. » The statement, “them that defile themselves” is the same Greek word as “sodomite” in 1 Cor. 6:9 » Such sin is described by the Holy Spirit as “contrary to sound doctrine.” 25

26 “Even as Sodom and Gomorrha and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after non-human flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire” p “Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

27 » The editors gave the following reason why they changed “strange flesh” to “non-human flesh” in this passage: “we chose to highlight the fact that the male mob in Sodom raped angels, which is ‘strange’ in that it is nonhuman.” ˃“Strange flesh” - “another i.e. one not of the same nature, form, class, kind; different” – Thayer ˃They lusted for same-sex flesh = “strange flesh” » Only the scriptural marriage bed between male & female is what is honorable among all and undefiled – Matt. 19:4-6; Heb. 13:4 27

28 » QJV Editors write; “We didn’t change anything else to create this edition of the Queen James Bible. The Queen James Bible resolves any homophobic interpretations of the Bible, but the Bible is still filled with inequality and even contradiction that we have not addressed. No Bible is perfect, including this one. We wanted to make a book filled with the word of God that nobody could use to incorrectly condemn God’s LGBT children, and we succeeded.” ˃www.queenjamesbible.comwww.queenjamesbible.com 28

29 » The account of Sodom and Gomorrah is repeatedly mentioned by inspired writers to warn against the punishment of homosexual behavior for those who lived under the Old Testament as well as all of us who will be judged by the New Testament: ˃Gen. 13:13; 18:16-19:29 ˃Deut. 29:23; 32:32 ˃Isa. 1:9-10; 13:19; Jer. 23:14; 49:18; 50:40 ˃Amos 4:11; Zeph. 2:9; Matt. 10:15; Mark 6:11; Rom. 9:29; 2 Pet. 2:6; Jude 7 » Perverting the Word of God is condemned! ˃Duet. 4:2; 12:33; Prov. 30:6; 2 John 9-11; Gal. 1:

30 » “ 18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: » 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” - Rev. 22:

31 The “Queen James Version” is a perversion! 31
