Homosexuality: I Will Not Yield!
It is a fact that the Bible can never mean what it was not meant to mean.
Yet, there has been a massive, concerted, unbiblical effort for many years to transform America from the Land of the Free to the Land of the Spree. It is a distinct effort to remove all Christian influence from America and replace it with the “anything goes” philosophy.
Progressive promoters of permissiveness have been pitching perversion in the school house, court house, and state house, and church house for 50 years. And now the White House. Some think that is smart, sensible and almost sacred but I think it is scandalous, seamy, and almost seditious. America is quickly becoming Sodom with electric lights, smog, and interstates. It is a broad way that leads to destruction–this road to Sodom.
Religious changes in society take long periods of time to create but not with this issue. The Homosexual Lobby with the help of academia and Hollywood has produced the greatest and swiftest change in any culture in history–the general acceptance of perversion as normal, even admirable, courageous, and daring.
When some of us insist that we sincerely believe perversion is sinful and detrimental to the participants as well as society, we are told not to moralize about perversion while they moralize about those of us who moralize about perversion. When it comes to perversion, the left has tolerance for almost everyone except those of us who will not tolerate perversion.
In a New York Times editorial a few weeks ago, columnist Frank Bruni insisted that Christians must be “made” to change their church doctrines on sexual morality. He actually wrote, “Church leaders must be made to take homosexuality off their sin list.”
And alas, many “Evangelicals” have been doing just that while clinging hypocritically to their Bibles. But then, we didn’t make the sin list, God did. Mushy evangelicals are changing their minds about homosexuality as seen in the support for same-sex “marriage” that soared from 20% in 2003 to 42% in 2014 according to Time magazine. Such a change is unprecedented.
Recently Ireland was the first nation to approve same sex “marriage.” This was a self-indictment and indication of a massive failure of the Roman Catholic Church. Ireland should have been one of the last nations to put the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval on perversion.
The East Lake Community Church near Seattle became one of the first evangelical megachurches in the country to vigorously support unrepentant LGBTQ people. This “Evangelical” megachurch is known for rock-music worship and believing and teaching the Bible.
But Pastor Ryan Meeks, age 36, is leading the charge to make perversion acceptable.
“I refuse to go to a church where my friends who are gay are excluded from Communion or a marriage covenant or the beauty of Christian community,” Meeks said.
The pathetic pastor added, “It is a move of integrity for me—the message of Jesus was a message of wide inclusivity.”
Incredible. It seems that young preachers have been infected with a pernicious virus that will end up killing everyone. Meeks doesn’t understand that homosexuals are not included into decent society because of their disgusting, depraved, and dangerous behavior.
Furthermore, Meeks doesn’t know (or care) that Christ was very narrow when He said, “Ye must be born again.” And in Matt. 7:14 He warned, “narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” Meeks is wrong.
Time quotes Pastor Meeks saying, “Every positive reforming movement in church history is first labeled heresy. Evangelicalism is way behind on this. We have a debt to pay.”
However, for churches to acquiesce to the Homosexual Lobby and approve same sex “marriage” is not reformation but apostasy. The only debt I own is to teach people the truth whether they want to hear it or not and totally disregard the tsunami of false propaganda from the “gay” crowd.
Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in California, Andy Stanley of North Point Community Church in Atlanta and Bill Hybels of Willow Creek Community Church have been metaphorically meeting with proactive homosexuals in church basements singing “Kumbaya” for years. They have adjusted their biblical views so as not be judgmental about the swingers in their pews.
James Dobson’s third string successor, Jim Daly, the doleful president of Focus on the Family, has developed a friendship with LGBT activists and huddles with them to better understand their problems.
Recently, Rick Warren made a fool of himself when he held hands with flaming homosexual activist Elton John (who has more earrings than my wife) during a Senate Hearing. Rick’s unnecessary, untoward, and unscriptural statement to Elton was, “If I kissed you it would be the kiss heard around the world.” No doubt every buzzard in Arizona regurgitated in response.
The once Fundamental, now Evangelical, Wheaton College (Billy Graham’s alma mater) hired a celibate lesbian in its chaplain’s office. Have the loonies taken over everywhere?
Super elite Wesleyan University, always on the cutting edge now offers LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM housing (Not a Typo). For the culturally oblivious among us, LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM stands for “lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, queer, questioning, flexual, asexual, gender****, polyamorous, bondage/discipline, dominance/submission, sadism/masochism.”
Wonder what John Wesley (the school’s namesake) thinks as he observes such depraved activities from Heaven?
The university employs a Jewish Rabbi, a Catholic Priest, a Protestant Chaplain, and a Muslim Chaplain. One word accurately describes Wesleyan: apostasy.
Many Christians stand around, cluck their tongues, and moan about the apostasy but are too lazy, cowardly, or unconcerned to grab a sword and get into the battle. It is past time to come out of the prayer closet (for a while) and get in the fight. It is important to pray but fighting is necessary although not as safe.
We not only have a right and responsibility to oppose the rush to Sodom by the media, academia, etc., but we are right in our position. It is the Christian coward who says “I don’t like your militant, critical opposition of same sex “marriage,” but I support your right to be a bigot.” We are not bigots. We are right.
America now accepts as normal what would have shocked our grandparents: fornication, bastard babies, divorce, same-sex “marriage,” daycare, fast-food dinners, loss of privacy to gain promised safety, etc. But then rebels have always delighted in shocking their parents.
Time was right in one respect when they affirmed that all sides agree that “the Bible itself is at stake.” Of course, the Bible will endure regardless of the reaction to it; but in a sense, the Bible is at stake.
Is it true or not? Are we still obligated to obey its teachings of not? Is there still a curse on those who deny, denigrate, and denounce it? Will God destroy a civilization that rejects the Word and approves perversion?
The “Evangelical” churches and some Fundamentalist churches can reject Bible truths as antiquated and approve, applaud, even advocate for perversion, but I will not yield.
I love people enough and still hold my ordination vows sacred so I will tell people the truth. I will not yield to perversion.
What you are hearing daily in this world of sexual compromise, collusion, and corruption is the death rattle of a once-great nation.
