Some years ago I wrote a letter to the Editor of the Daily Herald in Utah. Someone had written a letter to the editor about his anger that Christians don't accept homosexuality. He said that he felt the Bible should be changed to accept homosexuality. In my response, I said, "Go ahead, change the Bible. But don't call it the Bible. Once you change it, it isn't the Bible anymore. The same goes for marriage." I still feel very strongly about this point today. The Bible has endured many centuries. While it has gone through different translations, it has not, up to now. gone through a change of doctrine. Some of the wording might be slightly different than it was two thousand years ago, and some doctrine might have been lost through edits or translations, but the basic commandments have remained unchanged.
Today I read an article that made me wonder if the writer of that letter to the editor took me up on my suggestion. Not only have the gays decided to come up with their own Bible, but they have even given it a new name. An article from a UK newspaper reports that the gays have made their own version of the Bible that will soon go on the market. They did us the favor of changing the name from "The Holy Bible" to, "The Princess Diana Bible". As you might expect, they didn't only change the name, they also changed most of the doctrine and events. The Holy Bible teaches about the creation of Adam and Eve. The gay bible teaches about the creation of Aida and Eve. The Holy Bible teaches about the creation of animals and then people. The gay bible teaches of the creation of apes who evolved. The Holy Bible records the destruction of Soddom and Gomorrha, wherein homosexuality was practiced. The gay bible teaches that homosexuality is superior.
This reminds me of the children of Israel who, while Moses was up speaking with God on Mount Sinai, began to make idols. I always wondered how they could take some gold or other metal, and fashion an idol, then actually believe that it was a god. If the idol had descended from heaven in a cloud of glory, then I could understand their mistaking it for a god. But when they made it with their own hands, it is akin to my sewing a teddy bear, then believing it was god. So too, the gays have fashioned a work of their own hands. It was not created by God, and goes contrary to God's teachings. Do they really believe it represents God's will?
At the end of the article that I reference above, the man being interviewed asks, " There are 116 versions of the Bible, why is any of them better than ours?" My reply to him would be, "Any version that was inspired of God, and not written by men, and any version that contains the will of God, and not perversions of men, is better than your version."
