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