Pastor Geoff works through 1 Corinthians 6 and provides a 3-point outline to this very important text that clearly and specifically addresses the topic of homosexuality and, so called, gay-christians.
The Sobering Plea to Not Be Deceived By Charlatans (9a)
The Sinful Patterns That Keep You Out Of Heaven (9-10)
The Sure Promises of Christ’s Blood & the Power of the Spirit’s Regeneration (11)
"Biblical Truth About Gender & Marriage Matters, Part 1: Introduction"
In this audio-blog, Pastor Geoff Kirkland teaches an introduction to the upcoming 7-part audio-blog series on: THE BIBLICAL TRUTH ABOUT GENDER & MARRIAGE.
This introductory message lays the foundation and presuppositions for the upcoming podcasts.
June is not LGBT Pride month. June is God's month. And Pastor Geoff explains how God is the authority and has every right, as God, to define and set the boundaries for gender, identity, roles, and marriage.
Listen to this audio-blog -- part 1 of the upcoming series on marriage & gender matters.
In this podcast we study this statement: ELDERS ARE DISQUALIFIED IF THEY LEGITIMIZE ‘GAY-CHRISTIANS’ AND HOMOSEXUALITY
Titus 1.8 — elders are qualified if they are “loving what is good”
What does that mean?
What is good? GOD is the highest good
What is good? TRUTH is the revelation of good
What is good? CHRIST is the quintessential good
What is good? the LOVE OF CHRIST and the GOSPEL OF CHRIST is good
what is good? TO HATE EVIL and PURSUE RIGHTEOUSNESS IS GOOD.
Pastor Geoff shows how homosexuality rejects the glory of Christ and it goes against the radiant purity of Christ's righteousness. This message exposes the perverted nature of homosexuality, it presents the glorious character of Jesus Christ, and it calls homosexuals and those who struggle with such deviant immorality to turn to this glorious Savior and be changed!
Pastor Geoff provides biblical truths from the New Testament that all show homosexual behavior as deviant from God's righteous Law and how it will incur God's just wrath unless sinners flee from sin & turn to Christ!
Now is the acceptable time! Flee to Christ & be delivered!
Pastor Geoff speaks of pertinent verses from the Old Testament that specifically address the topic of homosexuality.
Listen to these Scriptures which speak of the wickedness of this deviation from God's original design. Those caught in this lifestyle must turn from sin, seek the Lord, and follow after Him to be saved!
"Homosexuals Cannot See Jesus In Your Good Behavior!"
Homosexuals Can’t See Jesus In Your Good Behavior
2 Chronicles 33:15-16 - true change
They’re Dead in Sin
You Must Preach the Gospel
Remember God’s Sovereign Regeneration
Glory in Supernatural Transformation
We must open our mouths and courageously and lovingly plead with sinners (whether heterosexual or homosexual) to flee from their sinful ways and turn to Jesus Christ alone in repentance & faith to be saved from the coming wrath of God.
"How Should I Engage With & Interact With My Homosexual Friends?"
In this message, Pastor Geoff teaches from the Bible as to how we as Bible-believing Christians must engage with and interact with our homosexual friends, loved ones, neighbors, co-workers.
The Word of God makes clear that we must interact with our unbelieving friends by speaking the Truth with Love.
This message gives clarity so that we can stand courageously on the Word of God and engage with the lost world and shine as lights in the midst of it.

"How We Must Relate to Homosexuals & Transgender People & the LGBT Community"
Pastor Geoff preaches on Luke 5 and answers the question: How must evangelical Christians relate to homosexuals? How must we speak with those who claim to be transgender? How do we engage with the LGBT community? What are we to say? How are we to talk to them? How do we speak the truth in love?
This sermon answers the question under 5 headings.
"Introduction to the Homosexuality Series: The Need for Biblical Clarity on this Topic"
Pastor Geoff Kirkland (of Christ Fellowship Bible Church) provides a brief-message on the issue of 'homosexuality' and he shows from the Bible, the perfect Word of God, that all homosexual activity (including Same-Sex attraction, SSA) is sinful and those who find themselves engulfed in this lifestyle must repent or they will perish in hell.
The grace of God remains available for all to hear the gospel, repent of sin (turn!) and to flee to Jesus Christ so that they can be forgiven of their sin and escape the coming wrath of God!
Pastor Geoff continues the audio-blog series showing why same-sex attraction is in fact sinful.
Part 3, here, deals with the reason why it is sinful, namely, because the sin does not begin with the outward 'act' of homosexual behavior. Rather, the sin began long ago with unmortified, internal sins of the heart.
In this audio-blog, Pastor Geoff concludes the 5-part series asking & answering the question: Is Same-Sex Attraction Sinful?
The Bible answers this question quite clearly and in this audio-blog, Pastor Geoff shows that same-sex attraction is sinful because Romans 1:27 and 2 Peter 2:8 shows that the desire for homosexual activity is in fact sinful.
Pastor Geoff now discusses with the CFBC family Jesus' view of homosexuality. Many may (wrongly) claim that since Jesus never directly addressed homosexuality, then he didn't really care about it. He didn't probit it.
But what do the gospels teach? Is there clarity here?
Yes! Pastor Geoff provides a handful of headings to equip us about the clear and unambiguous teaching of Jesus in upholding and affirming marriage a covenant between one man and one woman (Matt 19).
In this podcast, Pastor Geoff Kirkland shows that pastors and academic professors who condone the LGBT+ movement are deceived.
We must stand courageously and speak biblically as we stand upon the sufficient, clear, and authoritative Word of God (=the Bible):
Men in the pulpits must teach TRUTH to God’s people.
Professors in the instructions must teach SCRIPTURE to Believers.
Christians in the pews must understand the NATURE of sin.
Christians in the pews must believe the POWER of regeneration.
Christians in the pews must warn with urgency of homosexuality (SSA)
Christians in the pews must speak with courage in these times.
Christians in the pews must expect the hatred of the world.
"Same-Sex Attraction (Homosexual Desires) Without Acting Out"
In this final conclusion to the audio-blog series on "Why homosexuality is sinful", this final session proclaims the full gospel and calls on all people to turn from sin and to flee to Jesus Christ!
The only hope that the homosexuals have is found only at Calvary -- where Jesus Christ died for His people.
The offer is extended to all people listening to repent (turn from) of sin and to turn to the Lord Jesus Christ alone in saving faith.
God is willing to receive sinners! The day of mercy is now available! Come to Christ & live!
In this "Shepherd's Moment of Equipping," Pastor Geoff equips the CFBC flock on what the Bible says about homosexuality -- behavior and desires -- from the Old Testament. This teaching provides clear exposition, word studies, and hope found in Jesus Christ alone.
1. the beautiful PLAN OF GOD (=marriage)
2. the blasphemous PERVERSION AGAINST GOD (=homosexuality)
3. the beautiful PICTURE OF MARRIAGE (=a pointer to the union between Jesus Christ and His Bride, the Church)
Pastor Geoff teaches this audio-blog/podcast on the important & relevant topic of homosexuality -- or, 'same-sex marriage.'
Pastor Geoff shows what God says about marriage and how the Bible explicitly and undeniably calls homosexuality sin. Those who persist in such lifestyles will not go to heaven; but they will perish forevermore under God's just wrath.
But God extends grace and mercy to those who repent (turn from/forsake/abandon) their sinful ways and trust (believe, follow, obey) in the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
Homosexuality is a sin that can be forgiven (just as other sins) because God's grace is such that it extends even to the worst of sinners and it is so sufficient that it can cover even the most vile and heinous of sins.
This audio blog speaks to the sinfulness of homosexuality and why it is sinful. Believers today must stand courageously on God's truth and not shy away from declaring God's Word regarding such issues in our society.
Come to Christ! Trust in Him! Flee from your wicked ways!
