Come out of the closet

Dave come out! Come out!
But Mum I was praying in the closet.
Yes praying.
Ok that is ok.
I was not trying to hide anything.
Are you sure?
Yes Mum I am sure.
I tell you and Dad everything.
That’s good we do not as a family want to hide any secrets away from each other.

Sit everyone. Did anyone do their homework last night?
Good most of the class. Henry why did you not do the set homework?
Sir my father as you all know is a Pastor and he told me not to do the homework set for last night.
Oh and why did your father not approve of that homework?
Dad says that homosexuality is a sin.
And do you agree Henry?
I don’t know sir I don’t understand it. But Dad’s the boss.
Do you think your Dad understands homosexuality?
Dad knows everything and he’s a Pastor.

Class we all know about slaves and slavery. In days in the past slavery was rife. The white people treated black people as an inferior race. Slavery was justified because interpretation of the Christian Bible warranted it so. Take the kings of the holy land Israel in the Old Testament times these kings had many slaves as did the Israelites themselves. Slavery in those times was condoned on a wide scale. Now later on we have the America’s and their rampant slavery. And we should not forget the slavery in Great Britain this tolerated here until parliament outlawed it with the help of a Good Samaritan a Member of Parliament William Wilberforce (1759-1833). With Wilberforce’s intervention slavery was abolished in the British Empire; the Slavery Abolition Act 1833. Slavery attests to the old adage “Everyone is created equal but some are more equal than others”.
The American civil war (1861-1865) cost the lives of approximately 620,000 men. This civil war was about slavery. The southern states of the USA were called the Confederates and they fought the northern states called the Unionists. The southern states had a lot of plantations and many slaves worked on these plantations. The unionists abolished slavery. The confederates broke away from the union so there was a war. Abraham Lincoln won the presidency in 1860. In September 1862, Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation made ending slavery in the South a war goal.
Emancipation is about freeing people from the fixed ideas of others. This is about liberation from the control of others. The civil war in America was about emancipation of the dark skin people. We must remember that alot of owners of slaves were church going people.
Sir what is slavery to do with our homework last night?
Henry do you not see a correlation?
No sir.
You say your father is a Pastor of a church.
Yes he is sir.
And the Bible speaks much about slavery been tolerated and accepted. It is up to the church to be responsible for the truth in the world. The wisdom of God is Jesus Christ and this wisdom (maybe 7 pillars of wisdom) is the pillars that hold up the church. The church condoned slavery and as such gave liberty to people to own slaves. Slavery was justified because the church justified it.
But sir what is this to do with homosexuality?
Don’t you see Henry your father you say knows everything? Humans don’t know everything we want to know everything because we are told that knowledge is power. We can control people with knowledge. This is where emancipation comes in; people control others through supposedly knowledge that is not proven as truth. Young Pastors want to control their flock; why? Because these Pastors in their youthfulness are not in complete control of them selves. We are supposed to lead by example not by controlling. Cults are born from out of controlling leaders. Jesus while on this earth led by example.

Jesus Christ was before Pilate.
Pilate asked Jesus “What is truth?
Jesus did not reply.
Why not reply? Why reply to a silly question silly in Jesus eyes. When truth is looking you in the face you do not ask what truth is.
Truth was looking Pilate in the face and he was blind to it. You do not ask truth what is truth.

When we look at a human being we see truth. We see God we see revelation of God the creator. But in looking at a human being we also see sin. We see the error ways of the person. We see good and bad about a person.

When we look at a human being and we have insight we see past the colour of the skin.

Sir are a lot of people lacking in insight.
Yes, yes, yes. We see but we do not see we hear but we do not hear. A lot of people are dull in their minds.
Why are people dull?
Dull because of sin.
Sir is homosexuality a sin?
I do not know the answer to that one but I do know that it is not wise to judge people. Slavery is treated as a sin now by the church but in the past it was widely accepted.
Sir homosexuals are they treated like the slaves of the past?
Yes there is a great correlation.
What can we do to help?
Homosexuals have to arise and help themselves; they need to be honest with themselves and with God and with everyone else. Homosexuals need to come out of the closet in mass; not hide anymore; have courage and not be cowards; this will set a good trend for future generations of homosexuals. Suffering is part of life and coming out will not be easy a lot of homosexuals will suffer but in this suffering there hopefully will be understanding. Where there is no pain there is no gain.
Sir are you a homosexual?
No, I am straight. I am a straight thinker and a straight talker. But I love “Understanding”. I want the truth. I hate been lied to. I hate deceit. Homosexuals should be truthful about themselves; not live a lie to themselves or to anyone else.
The Bible says clearly that we are not to judge other people God is the only judge. We are not to judge homosexuals. Homosexuals are human beings in the image of God we see them in the light of God we see sin as well as good just as others see us good and bad.
But sir is homosexuality a sin?
I can tell you honestly that I did not choose my sexuality. I never in my whole life chose my sexual orientation. I in my young youth did not even know of homosexuality. To my knowledge I was always attracted to females. I did not make a choice about been attracted to males or females. I have never been attracted to males. My sexual orientation was made for me to my knowledge at my creation in my mother’s womb; I believe it is the same for homosexuality you are homosexual at birth. The same for the colour of a persons skin you are born white skinned or dark skinned it is not a choice a person makes.
Time everyone. Class finished.
Thank you sir.

Kind regards; Lester John Murray.
