9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous ones will not inherit God’s Kingdom? Be not deceived; neither fornicators nor idolators nor adulterers nor effeminate nor homosexuals 10 nor thieves nor greedy ones nor drunkards nor revilers nor swindlers will inherit the Kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you, but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ n the Spirit of of our God. (1 Corinthians 6:9-11 Translated from the NA28 Greek text)
We heard a very good sermon this morning at church. The Gospel was presented fully and that meant we heard Law and Gospel and that meant that there was no soft-sell on how one comes to Christ. We heard a great deal about repentance being a necessary part of the Christian walk. Even through the evangelist never came to the passage above, it kept running through my head the entire time. after our Small Group prayer time tonight I knew I had to post this.
Several years ago I heard a presentation from a friend about a “sermon” made by Matthew Vines who is a homosexual activist. He actually preached a sermon based on 1 Corinthians 6-9-11, however, what he said was that the Greek had been mistranslated in v11 and it should actually say, “And such ARE some of you.” not long after this I had a homosexual person contact me and he tried to convince me that Matthew Vines was right. I told him that I could read and translate Greek and I knew that our translations such as the KJV, the NASB, NIV, etc. were correct and Vines was a deceiver.
