Gay Pride

Those who believe God’s Bible are certainly not surprised that mankind is getting worse. God put it in writing for us:

“But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” 2 Timothy 3:13

I think that what is surprising is the speed in which men are doing thus and the pride they take in doing it. Homosexuality is not a new sin. It has been around for thousands of years. The punishment for such is not new either. Sodom and Gomorrah became God’s definitive punishment on sin in which men took pride. Note the Biblical account:

“But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the Lord exceedingly.” Genesis 13:13

“And the Lord said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous.” Genesis 18:20

“Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven.” Genesis 19:24

“Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, PRIDE, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters…” Ezekiel 16:49 (caps mine)

Our president proclaimed “June, 2009 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month. What God has called an abomination, Obama has proclaimed as good:

“Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” Leviticus 18:22

Paul said it like this:

“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: [27] And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” Romans 1:26-27

Does someone think that God has changed His mind? The Bible speaks so plainly about this sin that there is no “spin” that can be put on it. Yet, sinners want other sinners’ endorsements, as if that makes it right. Facts are immaterial, just as they are in global warming, abortion and bail-outs. Uganda recently passed laws that carry the death penalty for anyone raping young boys or girls (because some thought doing so would heal AIDS) or knowingly infecting someone with AIDS. Of course, the homosexual groups protested such a law and asked Rick Warren to intervene for them. Rick Warren represents thousands of Christians and churches. Who would think that a minister of the gospel (?) would side with those whom God had warned against? Good ole Rick’s response, “The freedom to make moral choices and our right to free expressions are gifts endowed by God.”(1) In spite of the punishment by God on Sodom being mentioned over 30 times in 14 different books in the Bible, Warren ignores the God he says he serves and takes the side of iniquity.

Keep in mind that homosexuality is not just a spiritual problem, it is a health problem. Stop homosexuality and AIDS will dwindle away. AIDS is only one of the diseases that plague the homosexual scene. Statistics show that male homosexuals live to only about 45 years of age, as compared to 75 for the heterosexual male. Colon diseases, liver diseases, a variety of cancers and Hepatitis A are common with homosexuals. Homosexual men account for over 50% of all AIDS and Hepatitis A cases, yet represent only 4% of the population.

Even our prison system understands the problems of integrating housing with gays and straights. They know this not because they believe the Bible or are overly religious. They know the problems from experience.

Many good, sane people have signed the Manhattan Declaration, which in essence, supports religious liberty, marriage between a man and woman and the equal dignity of each human. At the same time they oppose abortion, euthanasia, same sex marriage and anything that lets government infringe upon God given rights. No one is trying to enact laws that would bring the death penalty on anyone caught in a homosexual act (as God did in Sodom.) What would you think if all murderers had a “murder pride march?” What about proclaiming an embezzlers month?

I am not a prophet or a prophet’s son, but I can tell you that you will see more and more preachers and churches siding with perversion than ever before. Laws are being attempted that will make it a crime to speak out against what God has spoken out against…sexual perversion, abortion, evolution, global warming, hypocrisy, false religion, etc. You know what…Jesus is coming!

Keep Looking Up!
