A Christian Examination Of The LGBT Flag

      Most people are familiar with God's covenantal promise to never again send waters to cover the entire land, a promise made to Noah after the Genesis flood. This flood was used as a means of executing judgment on man for his continually godless thoughts. Afterwards, He used a rainbow as a covenant symbol to make the promise to never cast judgement on the human race in the same manner again (Genesis 6:5-8; 8:20-22; 9:11, 12:9-17). Sadly, however, the LGBT community has developed a new method for mocking God's wonderful promise to us through the innovation of a flag that displays only six of the seven colors of the rainbow.

        Having its origin in the State of California by artist Gilbert Baker, this flag was designed by lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transsexuals to represent their own diverse values through the Gay Pride Movement, which has now been popularized throughout the world. What is striking about this flag is that its colors mock that of God's covenantal promise, the rainbow, to man to never again judge man by means of a flood. While God's rainbow has seven different colors, the LGBT flag only has six colors of the rainbow. It is missing the color indigo. Not only does the symbolism of the flag contain six out the seven different colors of the rainbow, but it is also important to recognize that the number six is the spiritual number for fallen man and that seven is God's spiritual number. This can readily be seen as mockery of the Divine Creator.

        The entire foundation of the Gay Pride Movement has been built on pride and self-promotion. This has manifested itself through wild parades, festivals, clownish apparel, and imagery on public business signs or logos. Furthermore, the most radical members of the LGBT community have literally fought to silence all forms of disagreement, regardless of whether objections are established on scientific or philosophical grounds. The LGBT community is readily getting the attention that it wants because so many people are too afraid to be called haters and bigots. This movement would stop if enough people had the courage to refused to cater to the demands of these people. This constitutes a most brazen violation of freedom of speech and freedom of religion. The very reason such ideas were built into the fabric of our civilization by our Founding Fathers was to help maintain a peaceful order.

       Gay pride is contrary to everything that the Bible states regarding humility and sexuality. He opposes the proud and gives grace to the humble (Psalm 138:6; Proverbs 3:34; James 4:5). The people who exalt themselves will be humbled (Matthew 23:12). We need to humble ourselves before God and repent (James 4:7-8). He absolutely detests pride (Proverbs 8:13). Scripture emphatically condemns homosexuality. While it is true that God promised to never again cast judgment on the people of this world by means of a flood, He never stated He would not judge us again. In fact, we have been told that we shall have to render an account for all of our past deeds to Him (Romans 14:12). God's rainbow was meant to serve as a symbol of remembrance, not as a means of pride. He will not tolerate mockery. He will not tolerate the celebration of sin. Thus, all faithful Christians have been called to speak out against the LGBT flag.

  1. Well done, Jesse!

    I like what you said here: "God's rainbow was meant to serve as a symbol of remembrance, not as a means of pride."

    No one can rightfully (or safely) hijack this symbol of God's promise in order to promote debauchery. It is truly a perversion. I wish they would honor this symbol in the way that God intended. But if that were the case, they couldn't be homosexuals!
