Jimmy Carter Denies Scripture Is Inspired And Denies Jesus Taught Against Homosexuality

Isa 5:20  Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! 21  Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes And clever in their own sight! 

Jimmy Carter has come out with his own bible.


The NIV Lessons from Life Bible: Personal Reflections with Jimmy Carter contains the full text of the New International Version of the Bible and the former president’s prayers, reflections, and asides.
During his book tour to promote a study of the Scriptures, Carter mentioned he supports same-sex “marriage.”

President Carter told Paul Brandeis Raushenbush, senior religion editor of The Huffington Post:
Homosexuality was well known in the ancient world, well before Christ was born and Jesus never said a word about homosexuality. In all of his teachings about multiple things – he never said that gay people should be condemned. I personally think it is very fine for gay people to be married in civil ceremonies. (emphasis from the article)

When Raushenbush pressed him about whether he believed the Bible is God’s word, Carter answered, “the basic principles of the Bible are taught by God, but written down by human beings deprived of modern day knowledge. So there is some fallibility in the writings of the Bible. But the basic principles are applicable to my life and I don’t find any conflict among them.”

“There are many verses in the Bible that you could interpret very rigidly,” Carter said, “and that makes you ultimately into a fundamentalist.”

End quote.

I consider Carter to be a reprobate. Repeatedly over the years he dares question God's Word and rebels against the Truth. For example, he was so upset with the SBC years ago for its biblical stand on wives submitting to their husbands as Scripture clearly commands, he left it.

First of all, his mere notes and opinions put into the Bible is ridiculous. Its the height of arrogance. What he thinks, what he has prayed, etc. has no bearing on Scripture nor gives proper interpretation to it. Of course, this is the very Bible he scorns and repudiates. Why bother with a Bible when you mock Its Author and correct Him?

Secondly Carter is ignorant of Scripture.

Here is the pre-incarnate Christ speaking:

Gen 18:20  And the LORD said, "The outcry of Sodom and Gomorrah is indeed great, and their sin is exceedingly grave.

He then destroys forever Sodom, Gomorrah and the surrounding cities for such great sin.

Jesus, Who personally saw the exceedingly great and grave sin of Sodom and then destroyed them for it, confirms their rightful punishment:

Mat 11:24  But I tell you that it will be more tolerable on the day of judgment for the land of Sodom than for you."  

Perhaps reading it in red will cause Carter to see Jesus confirming their eternal damnation. 

More passages on the sin of homosexuality:

1Ti 1:10  the sexually immoral, men who practice homosexuality, enslavers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine,

1Co 6:9  Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, 1Co 6:10  nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.

Jud 1:7  just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.
Rom 1:23  and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.24  Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves,25  because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.26  For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature;27  and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another,men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.28  And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 
Carter seems to reject the fact that Jesus is ETERNALLY GOD and was the One who saw AND punished with fire and brimstone, the homosexuals in Sodom and Gomorrah. God revealed Himself prior to the destruction of the cities and afterward that He is the God Who Sees and Hears, and is all powerful. I'm sure that's missing in his poor attempt to re-write Scripture.

Carter therefore denies that Jesus is the Author of all of Scripture. Jesus quoted from the Old Testament all the time: "Is it not written" was an often used phrase of His. All of Scripture is the inspired Word of God (2Tim. 3:16-17).  He is what is called a Red Letter "Christian"--like what Tony Campolo, another pro-sodomite liberal, is. This is damnable heresy because it utterly rejects Scripture and calls God a liar.

Joh 8:31  So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, "If you continue in My
word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; 32  and you will know the truth, and the
truth will make you free."

2Jo 1:9  Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son.10  If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house or give him any greeting, 11  for whoever greets him takes part in his wicked works.
