Shifting the goal posts

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron... (I Timothy 4:1-2 [KJV])

A person with a guilty conscience has a chance to repent, but the person with a seared conscience cannot repent, they have justified their sin. They read “Thou shalt not” as “Thou shalt do”.

Regarding Gays, if they still have any sense of guilt or shame then there is hope for them. The many Gays who have been truly born again dealt with their guilt by true repentance and cleansing of the conscience by the shed Blood of Christ. They faced their guilt and experienced the cleansing power of being justified by Jesus Blood.

But the many “Christian” Gays, who don’t believe homosexuality is sin, dealt with their guilt another way, by changing the rules or moving the goal posts of God’s moral absolutes. That’s the other way to remove guilt, by making sin to be no longer sin, so the conscience is no longer in a state of conflict. Change the law so that you no longer break the law. THIS is a seared conscience: like nerves which have been seared by a hot iron so that they lose their feeling. The seared conscience no longer FEELS concerning sin. No bad feelings. No nagging conscience anymore, and, due to the pride of man, what was formerly sin is transformed into a virtue. So, the “Christians” who encourage Gays in their sin are also revealed as ones with a seared conscience, speaking lies in hypocrisy. If you give them what Scripture says about the issue then the response is “lies in hypocrisy” : black becomes white and white becomes black. No chance of an intelligent discussion with them.
