Would Jesus have designed a wedding cake for a same-sex couple? AKA the “gospel” according to Joy Behar!

We’ve all heard the recent news regarding the Supreme Court upholding Christian baker, Jack Phillip’s right not to design and create a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.

The other day, I was looking through some YouTube videos and saw the one below, which featured Phillips as a guest on ABC’s morning show, “The View.” This episode was broadcast in 2017 before the case went to the Supreme Court.

For eleven minutes, he and his lawyer were grilled by the mostly-unfriendly, five-member panel. At the 4:53 mark, Paula Faris asks Jack, “What do you think Jesus would have done in that situation (i.e., asked to create a wedding cake for a same-sex couple)?” Jack’s answer, that he doesn’t believe Jesus would have made a cake, is met with incredulous disdain. The panel (and audience) largely agrees with Joy Behar (photo above) when she declares, “Jesus is gonna make the cake!”

Blood-bought, born-again followers of Jesus Christ know that the Lord Jesus Christ would never condone sinful behavior by creating a wedding cake for a male couple, decorated with two male figurines on the top, etc., etc. It would not happen. Believers who read their Bibles know this.

The panel presumes to speak for Jesus, although they are not born-again in Christ and do not read His Word. They have their opinion about what Jesus would do in Phillips’ circumstance, but it’s opinion without any Biblical basis. One of the panelists, Sara Haines, takes disparaging pot shots at the Bible for its teachings about homosexuality, and celebrates that “faith has evolved” since the “thousands of years ago” when God’s Word was written. We also hear from the same panelist, who professes to have been “raised in the church” (what church?), that the Bible isn’t to be trusted because it was “translated 60-some times,” whatever that means. The Bible is a closed book to unbelievers.

The Supreme Court ruling is not the end of this. We can anticipate the Bible’s teaching on homosexuality to became an increasingly rancorous point of contention between Bible Christians and unbelievers (religious and secular).

Please watch the video below if you can spare eleven minutes. It’s an education. Jack actually does fine given the unfriendly panel and his lack of experience on television.

 

“For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 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.” – Romans 1:26-27

    1. Thank you, Elizabeth! Yes, it’s frustrating to hear Behar claim to speak for Jesus when she has no clue. Initially, I wondered why Phillips and his lawyer even bothered to appear on this show. But they made some excellent points and weren’t made to look like bigoted extremists. Maybe some in the audience were actually motivated to pick up a New Testament and read it for themselves.

  1. I actually can’t stand the view; the ignorance on it is astounding. I can’t believe they let these women talk; so an attack on the Bible tops my list of reasons of why I recommend people not to watch them. Glad you wrote about it though; for people looking info on this and some Christian light being shed on it. Remember our discussion a few weeks back that the most ignorant tend to think they know more than others? This is an example of how those who know least of Scripture are so confident they know what Jesus would do…sigh.

    1. I’m only guessing but I think it would be safe to say Joy Behar has never read the New Testament in her entire life. Yet, she declares emphatically what Jesus would do. When trying to apply the “What would Jesus do?” question to some situations, it’s not always so black and white, but this one is easy.

      1. Reminds me of one of my favorite rock bands of my youth. They were heavy into social justice and on a live album one of the guys sang, “I don’t know if I want white America to remember or to forget, that Jesus Christ was the first non-violent revolutionary. Dig it, oh dig it, ooh right on, dig it, yeah.”

  2. The comment one of the ladies made about her gay brother being married in some “church” speaks volumes about how “faith has changed” as she put it. I’ve followed this and other cases like it and hope some sanity eventually prevails. The Supreme Court ruling was correct even for a godless person who respects the Constitution. The fact that it wasn’t unanimous is mind boggling. It is sad that anyone can consider any gay couple to be Christians. I base my opinion on the Bible as Jack obviously has. Anyone familiar with ! Cor. 6 (among others) knows what the Bible clearly teaches on the subject:

    “Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.”

    Praise God for His gift of grace and the process of sanctification. We are all on the learning curve but some things should be so clear.

    1. Thanks, Chris. Yes, this issue should be as clear to believers as adultery, but sadly we see that a few “evangelical” churches have already caved to societal pressure. I imagine more will follow.

  3. It’s really interesting you should happen to be talking about this issue as we, on our facebook page linked to our WordPress page, have been subjected to a remarkable level of abuse this week for our article about the minister endorsing the gay ‘Christian’ LGBT campaigner.

    The crux of the matter has been the criticism of those who know little or nothing of God’s Word, including professing ‘Christians’, supposing that Jesus would have been OK with such rejection of the gospel.

    This, being their conclusion, it then allowed them to say we had no idea of what the gospel is all about.

    These are perilous times, that is certain, and it is an encouragement to us to see others like yourself Tom taking a stand.

    1. Thank you for the encouraging words! Yes, the debate over this issue is going to greatly intensify. I can see believers being prosecuted in the future for “hate crimes” over this.
