The following article has appeared in today’s Belfast Telegraph. It is by ‘perversion advocate’, Gareth Hanna.
It is to be noted that it is a rehash of what appeared this time last year in the Belfast Telegraph.
It is to the shame of that newspaper that it is prepared to promote such devilish drivel.
Dear Christian, please understand that God’s Word is being fulfilled before your eyes! I quote a portion of God’s Word that I have often quoted before.
“This know also, that in the last days perilous (fierce – of the devil, Matthew 8:28) times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away,” 2 Timothy 3:1-5.
Gareth Hanna and his ilk are described by many of the terms used, by divine inspiration, by Paul in this portion of his epistle. Hanna is one of those whose ways and views are bringing in the ‘perilous times’ here spoken of by Paul.
I answered the article on July 29th last year and I am repeating that answer here.
Sincerely in Christ’s name,
My answer to the above as it was published back on 29th July 2022.
It would appear that the writer (Gareth Hanna) would have us believe that he has some form of connection with ‘Christianity’, but in truth his writings and arguments in the article indicate plainly that he is as ignorant of God’s Word as a ‘sow going to hoke’!
I do not intend to delve into the nonsense put forth by this clown for in truth there is more intelligent order of presentation in a ‘dog’s dinner’.
His theological and Biblical knowledge is about as equivalent to what you would find on these two solemn subjects expounded in a telephone directory!
Of course it has to be said that it is utterly impossible to present a lie and an utter folly in such a fashion as to make it appear sensible! The enemies of Christ were frequently shown to be bereft of common gumption by the Saviour. Here is one example.
“And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath. And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself. And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity. And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.
And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because that Jesus had healed on the sabbath day, and said unto the people, There are six days in which men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the sabbath day. The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite, doth not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead him away to watering? And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day? And when he had said these things, all his adversaries were ashamed: and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by him,” Luke 13:10-17.
The case for the perversion espoused by the likes of ‘Gareth Hanna’ is so utterly stupid and contrary to all natural law, that one is left dumbfounded and dazed at the effrontery to logic at their demands.
Though purporting to speak from a ‘Christian’ viewpoint, this jackass comes across as an utterly juvenile, nay, infantile exponent of the degeneracy of his cause.
The true heart of this writer is exposed in many places within the article. None better than in this brief statement.
“I was once asked to give a talk to a Christian youth group on ‘the LGBT issue’. I could say whatever I wanted, I was assured… as long as I “got to the point”, or something to that effect. It was obvious what that meant. While that church wasn’t heartless enough to preach the word ‘abomination . . . .’”
Consider what he says here when he employs the word ‘heartless’ to refer to the use of the word ‘abomination’. The Lord employs this term in Leviticus 18:22, when he forbids that which this man Hanna so verbosely advocates.
“Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”
Hanna says that to preach this verse and to use this term ‘abomination’, is a heartless thing to do.
What does this assertion by him make of the Lord Who employed this term in order to define the wickedness of the lifestyle Hanna defends?
He clearly is asserting that the Lord is ‘heartless’. That is a wholly abominable thing to say!
Here is what a true Christian believes about the ‘heart’ of the Lord. The kindliness of the heart of the Saviour is set forth in Mark 1:40-41.
“And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean.”
Few would be willing to touch the diseased body of a leper but not so the merciful Saviour.
The Psalmist was well acquainted with the tender heart of the lord. “Hear me, O LORD; for thy lovingkindness is good: turn unto me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies,” Psalm 69:16.
“Great are thy tender mercies, O LORD,” Psalm 119:156.
Hanna, in his rebelliousness, repudiates the term the Lord uses of the wickedness of sodomy and its associated perversions. The outcome of the dispute he thus conducts with the Lord and His Word will be settled on that “day, in the which he (God) will judge the world in righteousness by that man (Christ) whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead,” Acts 17:31.
It will be seen on that day that “whoremongers and adulterers God will judge,” Hebrews 13:4.
Hanna and his ilk have chosen to fly in the face of God and His truth, the testimony of generations of godly Bible-believers and the clear laws of nature. What he and his like promote is so obviously unnatural and is but evidence that there has taken place in their lives that terrible curse set forth by the apostle Paul: “God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient,” Romans 1:28.
Such as Hanna are to be pitied and their exhortations absolutely rejected and opposed.
Sadly, as he has been given a platform in the ‘Belfast Telegraph’ so, like-advocates, have also been given a hearing in the apostate churches and amongst their members. The very fact that Hanna was invited to a young people’s meeting to speak on this subject, illustrates the darkness in the pulpit and the pew regarding God’s Word and its condemnation of this latter-day abomination. It further shows that there is a willingness within many churches to have young people indoctrinated by his like.
Dear Christian, only God’s judgment can follow this vile plague spreading in our land.
Sincerely in Christ’s name,
