Frequently Asked Questions

Why does RA focus so much attention on homosexuality?

We focus on homosexuality for two reasons; First, because the Bible focuses on homosexuality. God has put clear prohibitions against this behavior in both Old (Gen. 18, 19, Lev.18:22) and New Testament (Rom.1:26-27, I Cor. 6:9-11). Secondly, RA gives special emphasis to homosexuality because our society gives special emphasis to homosexuality. It is a lifestyle associated with a massive political lobby and propaganda campaign.

We believe it to be our duty to respond with love and truth to those areas where the devil is most diligently attacking. Perhaps the following quote by Martin Luther best sums up why we preach in the stated manner: "If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at that moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christ. Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved; and to be steady on all the battlefield besides, is mere flight and disgrace if he flinches at that point."

In addition, the attempts to normalize homosexuality, as well as efforts to suppress any dissenting voice, are fronts where the devil is certainly attacking with much fury and might. This is cause for Christians to be concerned and to be involved.

Shouldn’t Christians be tolerant and accepting?

Christians should be kind, patient, willing to forgive and gracious. This does not mean wholesale acceptance and toleration of any behavior. No one tolerates unconditionally, God especially. Even homosexuals themselves show intolerance when they say we shouldn’t be doing what we do. Our society is intolerant of rapists, murders, thieves, as well as many other behaviors, and this is a good thing. We all have a moral system that discriminates against behaviors that we believe to be immoral, unjust, and wrong.

The real question is, is homosexuality right or is it wrong? However one answers this, they must appeal to a moral standard to make a judgment one way or the other (saying homosexuality is ok is making a judgment). Our ultimate standard is God the Creator and what we believe to be His written revelation to mankind, the Bible. If one rejects this standard then what standard can they appeal to? Most have nothing but there own subjective opinion. If this is all we have to appeal to then truth is ultimately subjective and we can not make any absolute moral claim about homosexuality. But nor can we make a moral claim about gay-bashing, raping and murdering; all moral judgments would be reduced to arbitrary opinion, none being more right or more wrong than any other. The rapist’s opinion is just as valid as the victimized woman and there is no way to arbitrate between the two (an appeal to majority is a fallacy, just consider the days of segregation as an example of the error in such logic). Thus all moral reasoning, something most of us take for granted in society, would be reduced to nonsense. Since no one lives consistently with this nor would accept the results of such, we can say this is invalid as an ultimate standard. There must be something which transcends man’s subjective opinions as well as his subjective governments and laws. Thankfully there is, it is the Law of God. You know it as much as we do and every time you make a moral judgment you affirm God’s Law, written in your heart (Rom. 1 & 2). The question is, are we surrendered to His will, or are we in rebellion to Him, trying to devise our own moral system that justifies our pet sins? Please consider these words carefully.

Does RA hate homosexuals?

No. We are commanded in Scripture to “Love our neighbor as ourselves”, to even “love our enemies”. We preach boldly and diligently because we care about homosexuals and want to see them set free from sin and to love and serve God.

What about someone who is born 'gay'?

What if someone is born a thief? A liar? A rapist? Certainly having those desires “naturally” does not justify fulfilling those desires. A part of being a mature individual is self-control. Controlling and subduing desires that we may have which we know to be wrong. The Bible says that we are born fallen creatures, separated from God with many propensities for sin. This is why Jesus said a man must be born again, with a new nature, which is created in righteousness and true holiness. If we will humble ourselves and ask the Lord Jesus to cleanse us of our sin, putting our life in His hands, this will become a reality in our life.


"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." II Chronicles 7:14 KJV
