Rush Limbaugh recently hired open homosexual singer Elton John to perform at his (fourth) wedding. Limbaugh scorns the Word of God through his friendly association with an unrepentant homosexual who is hostile to the Lord Jesus (e.g., Elton John has stated that Jesus was a homosexual).
Oh, I know, Jesus often associated with sinners. That’s true. However, he only showed compassion on those who recognized their behavior as sinful. That’s not the case here.
Elton John isn’t merely a talented musician who happens to engage in same-sex sodomy. He is an anti-Christian zealot who publicly flaunts rebellion toward God. In fact, he publicly declared he would ban all religion in an article published by The Observer Music Monthly, saying:
“I think religion has always tried to turn hatred towards gay people. Religion promotes the hatred and spite against gays. But there are so many Christian people I know who are gay and love their religion . . . From my point of view I would ban religion completely, even though there are some wonderful things about it. I love the idea of the teachings of Jesus Christ and the beautiful stories about it, which I loved in Sunday school and I collected all the little stickers and put them in my book. But the reality is that organised religion doesn’t seem to work. It turns people into hateful lemmings and it’s not really compassionate.”
God’s Word isn’t just scorned by Limbaugh’s friendship with unrepentant homosexuals, but by his public support for homosexual “civil unions,” designed to create a legal status for sin Scripture condemns. Yet, many Christians idolize Limbaugh, despite the fact that Scripture warns us to be careful of our associations:
“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful…(Psalm 1:1)”
In whose counsel are you walking? In whose path are you standing? In whose seat are you sitting?
With whose wisdom do you fill your mind, Christian? Hopefully, you are filling your mind with things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy (Philippians 4:8), and listening to those who promote and practice them.
