Making Love is Making God: Gays and the NEW New Testament of Jesus


 Making Love Is Making God




A brief look at the three (3 only) passages in the New Testament in which something similar to same sex relations is mentioned, contrasting the King James Version with the New New Testament. Information on this sublime new recasting of the New Testament can be found in the previous posting. The book can be purchased as a paper back here:

Romans 1:26-27:

 KJV

[26] For this reason God gave them over to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged the natural sexual relations for unnatural ones, [27] and likewise the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed in their passions for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

NNT:

God has such deep compassion for those who have not yet made this love-connection with him, because they have not yet seen and experienced the truth of the immense love he has for them. He longs for the day when they will see this truth. Through the awe of a starry night to the warmth of the rising sun, his power and love have been manifested since the beginning of time. But many have failed to open their minds and hearts to this glory. Their fear had hid this truth from them. So instead of seeing the Glory of God, they settled for the dust of this world. God waited patiently for them to mature through their acts of dishonor to him and themselves.
(end of Chapter 1)


1 Corinthians: 5 & 1 Corinthians 6: 9-10
KJV:


But now I have written to you  not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard....

No, you yourelves do wrong and cheat, and you do these things to your brethren!
Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites....

NNT:

1 Corinthians 5
My prayer now is that we return sexuality to its rightful place next to spirituality. I now see that sexuality is the marvelous expression of spirituality on the physical level. As matter is to energy, so sexuality is to spirituality. Sexuality is the Divine Gift to augment our Spirituality. Its primary purpose is spiritual growth, not human birth. Human birth happens only very rarely, whereas spiritual growth is needed constantly!

1 Corinthians 6
Be aware that your bodies are members of Jesus. They too are made in the image of God. Be aware also that your bodies are Temples of the Spirit, the Risen Jesus, given to you by Dad to help you live as the Spirit, as the Risen Jesus. Making love is making God, since God is Love. Move your sexuality totally into your Temple and act out from that sacred place. Move your Sexual energy, your creative energy, into the world and shower it with Love...

As I have said (sometimes wrongly) in my previous writings: Don't let anyone convince you otherwise.
Enter the heart of Dad's love and you will feel this Truth. 




1 Timothy 1:8-11

 KJV
Knowing this: That the law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers.
For fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers.

NNT:

For the law is for unbelievers. If we truly believe in Love, in God, there is no need of law, other than those which bring order to our external world. But we have the Good News of our beloved God to guide us, and which I have been entrusted to share.




Women obey your husbands: A brief sample.

Eph. 5:22-24 – “Wives, be subject to your husbands, as to the Lord.  For the husband is the head of his wife, as Christ is the head of the church, His Body, and is himself its savior. As the church is subject to Christ, so let wives also be subject in everything to their husbands.”

NNT:

Honor one another just as you would honor Jesus. This is especially important for husbands and wives. Husbands, love your wives as you love Jesus. Wives love your husbands as you love Jesus. There has never been a greater example of the Love we are called to than that of Jesus.

One who loves his wife loves himself. One who loves her husband loves herself.This is simply the reality of our Oneness. As Jesus treats his Communities, we are to treat one another, for we are members of his Body. Husbands and wives should have as deep a unity with each other as Jesus has with his communities, and with each one of us.

Only hearts totally open to Spirit can understand the depth of our call to Love. Only hearts totally open to Jesus can live it.
