If you are a Christian, or rather the authentic type, you would know that the power of the blood of Jesus is supreme. The whole validation of our faith hangs on the power of his blood to redeem sinful humanity. But a homosexual minstrel act who failed at overcoming his sexual sins, blames his failure on the blood of Jesus.
"After becoming a born-again Christian, I still felt dirty; the blood of Jesus did not wipe away the shame from the abuse I suffered. I then discovered Exodus and Life Ministries' "ex-gay" program in NYC.", says Peter Toscano.
Wait a minute! After you became a "born again Christian"?? Not only did this guy flunk out of two exgay schools, he completely mangles basic, non-seminary, Christian teaching. Contrary to his claims,sexual abuse didn't make him exgay, rebellion and ignorance made him gay.
Stranger than fiction
Toscano is a Quaker which may explain his inability to grasp fundamental Biblical truths. What's more, his statement about the blood of Jesus seems to violate even general Quaker beliefs. And like countless homosexual men who struggle with sexual identity and behavior, Toscano was "sexually abused". Realizing this admission would substantiate the abuse leads to homosexuality argument, he quickly adds a disclaimer stating that he was "already gay" before the abuse. At the ripe old age of seven, he knew he was gay. Strange, considering most seven year olds, unless they are some sort of prodigy are barely emotionally mature, let alone sexually aware. Even child prodigies are emotionally the same as other children.
Lest anyone would believe the lost lad, let me make corrections to such offensive error.
1. It is impossible to become a Christian without the blood of Jesus cleansing your sins, first. Hebrews 9:22
2.The blood of Jesus is uniquely effective because it was perfect, without blemish. It was the perfect sacrifice God required in order for mankind to be redeemed. In order to overcome any human default, it must come through the blood. Rev 12:11
3. Toscano's statement is blasphemous because it attributes a sinful trait to the holiness of Christ. Without acknowledging and accepting his sacrifice, there can be no salvation.
4. Not only does Christ's blood heal physical wounds, but equally heals emotional and spiritual wounding. Further the reason Toscano could not overcome his sinful sexual desires is because he did not confess those deeds to CHRIST, whose very blood would have set him free. 1 John 1:7-9.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. Toscano took a side road, looking to men to do what only the blood of Jesus could accomplish. No wonder he ended up with the short end of the stick.
