Homosexuals are of the devil – Apostle Duncan

ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – “A person engaging in homosexuality is a person that sins and continues to sin, they are of the devil.” This is according to Apostle James Duncan of the USA, who was among a group of church leaders on the Morning Ride Show on ZROD FM radio today, September 12, 2013.

“Man having to sleep with another man is a sin,” Apostle Duncan further lamented as he blamed the devil (Satan) for being responsible for perverting mankind. “That is why God created Adam and Eve, he didn’t create Adam and Steve or Eve and Evelyn.”

The team appeared on the show at the invitation of its host Paul ‘Gadiethz’ Peart, who raised the the burning topic of homosexuality during the discussions.

Apostle Duncan emphasized that it is the act of homosexuality that is wrong and insisted that mankind was created for the main purpose of procreation. “No two men can produce children… because in God’s heart and mind he made opposites, one male and one female.”

Challenged by the host ‘Gadiethz’ that the bible referred to homosexuality as an abomination and not a sin, the pastor reasoned that an abomination is a degree more than sin.

Grilled about his approach to welcoming persons professed to be gays, Apostle Duncan said, “I work with people, I travel with people who were gays. When Jesus Christ came he came and paid the price for every sinner, a person who is gay is a sinner…,” Apostle Duncan said.

The preacher also referred to the Bible in Romans Chapter 1 where it speaks about homosexuality. “God is not against the homosexual but homosexuality is a sin.” According to the man of God, it is the act of homosexuality that God is against and not the person committing the act.

In the Christian realm, according to Apostle Duncan, homosexual are mis-guided. He was supported by Pastor Glen England out of St. Kitts who said he has been dealing with the very topic on a wide scale. Pastor England said the churches are facing the issues of protecting marriages against same-sex marriage.

“This is the issue that we have to really protect because we talking about generations and if this is continued, if we embrace it, we can cause destruction to the generations, a lot of delusion, a lot of confusion,” Pastor England emphasised.

On the notion that gays hold on to the claim that they were born that way, having sexual affection for a person of the same sex, Pastor England dismissed it as a delusion. “It is not that you were born so, it was an iniquity maybe in their generation where their father or mother had committed a sin… so it continues going from generation to generation.”

Apostle Glen further stated that persons who claim to be homosexuals cannot claim that they believe in God and be bent on going against what the word of God says. “What’s happening is that the church must be able to bring help and bring deliverance because what happened to the individual is that a demon is controlling his or her mindset.

It was agreed among the host of the show and its panelists that let to continue and escalate, homosexuality is a treat that can result in the detriment of humanity. This is, according to them, on the grounds that with same sex unions procreation cannot occur.

“Our existence is at risk,” Paul ‘Gadiethz’ Peart remarked.

    I agree this gay thing is about wanting us here to accept a deviant lifestyle. All of a sudden the buggery laws and ban on gay marriage is a big problem when it has been on the books for generations. Why bother opposing it now? It serves a purpose. We also want to protect our youth from abuse by any rich visitor, who thinks he can come here and do as he pleases with our young men. We cannot follow the crowd. We have to show our independence

      God is just and righteous and that means he will love you and accept you if you repent and cease your wrong doing but he is not going to condone your wrong doing and accept you while you are deliberately sinning. He made Adam and Eve and united them, should he of wanted or condoned homosexuality then he would have married a male with a male/ female with female. Read the Bible and you'll see 1 Cor. 6:9-11 "9. What! Do ​YOU​ not know that unrighteous persons will not inherit God’s kingdom? Do not be misled. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men kept for unnatural purposes, nor men who lie with men, 10. nor thieves, nor greedy persons, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit God’s kingdom. 11. And yet that is what some of ​YOU​ were. But ​YOU​ have been washed clean, but ​YOU​ have been sanctified, but ​YOU​ have been declared righteous in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and with the spirit of our God."

        The dividing lines are often unpredictable. There are black churches that welcome openly gay couples, and white churches that do not.

    Apostle Duncan,

    Please don't forget to add the other sex sins, which include adultery, where people have sex with other people's wives and husbands. Also, fornication, where babies are being born out of wedlock.

    All these combine together with homosexuality are SEX SINS. Every sin spells SIN.

    We can't cap one SEX SIN, WHILE DISREGARDING THE OTHERS! Anyone of them will keep us from getting closer to God and into Heaven. None is more blatant than the other. God speed!

    Also, hate to say it but there are two swans in Boston garden who have been together since 2005. Swans mate for life... so happens they are both female to the surprise of the keepers. There are also gay swans Dorset, UK and gay penguins. We are only now learning about the biology of species which leads to the discussion of science VS the bible. If you read the book, you can find any passage you want, even if it is contradictory, to prove what ever you want to prove. So basically you have the judgmental bigots Vs those who live and let live.

    I find it so amazing that church folks are so vocal about homosexuality but not "out of wedlock babies" as result of fornication..or adultery.. or woman engaging with other women with men... which is homosexuality as well. Sin is SIN and we ALL sin including Pastor Duncan. The TRUE AND LIVING GOD doesn't hold one sin over another and there's not scripture anywhere noted as such; other than God giving up those to a reprobate mind. In fact the new covenant was made to revise the covenant under Moses; Pastor Duncan or other bible scholars knows this if the believe in the teachings of the TRUE and LIVING GOD.

    Grace and forgiveness is the new covenant revised from the covenant made with Moses by GOD. I'm not condoning any sin of any sort, but Y'husa( our lord Jesus) stated, "he that is without sin? CAST THE FIRST STONE."

    Neither one of us have a Heaven or Hell to send anyone too including Pastor Duncan. If we as believers demonstrates the fruits of the spirit, then the unbelievers will know GOD by the fruits we as believers show them. However the minute we start throwing STONES living in a glass house..will not bring sinners/unbelievers to our true and LIVING GOD, Yewah and Yewah's begotten son Y'eshua(Jesus).

    We need to preach LOVE and forgiveness and not throw stones living a glass house. Jesus never condemned ANYONE other than the Priests for not teaching the TRUTH.

    What is most alarming is that the same scriptures that speaks about homosexuality also speaks about a few other things that these so called Christians forget to mention:

    What about wearing clothes of mixed fabrics - that is a sin!
    What about eating pork - that is a sin!
    What about lusting - that is a sin!

    These preachers and apostles need to read the following scriptures!

    Leviticus 25:37
    Leviticus 19:19
    Leviticus 19:23
    Leviticus 19:27
    Matthew 25:35
    Ezekiel 16:49-50

    These are just a few!

    When casting judgement these hypocrites need to cast judgement on all and not just the convenient few.

    And Paul Peart better learn to keep his mouth shut before he get exposed for going up Huntums Ghut!

    I am happy to know that we are speaking about this topic openly. However the scriptures are very straight forward about this topic that homosexuality is a sin. God loves everyone and desires that none should perish but if there is no standard of right and wrong then how can a person repent (change their thinking and direction). To agree with same sex is to disagree with the Bible and that's not an option

    I would say that if you are a homosexual today and want out of that lifestyle then there is hope and God can deliver you if you seek after Him with all your heart. Is homosexuality a sin? Yes. Is it the greatest and only sin? No, but this is the topic of discussion.

    The Apostles on the show never said that God hates homosexuals they said that God hates the act or the sin. In fact the Apostles on the show have built their ministry on deliverance and freedom from all sins including homosexuality. Every sin that a man commits is derived from satan and the Apostles (Duncan and England) passion is to see individuals set free from demonic control.

From the discussions I've had with married and single women about the same it sounds like it is a common fondness amongst Caribbean men. Perhaps this is why so much hatred against gays; because the ones doing the complaining are frightened to accept what they are!
