My comments on Facebook concerning homosexuality.

Not sure there is much left to say, as Steve and Pete have done a pretty thorough job of debunking this aberrant lifestyle; which is to say, that anything that is aberrant, is, by definition, abnormal. The homosexual lifestyle is atypical, that in and of itself is a true departure, not only from what God has declared right and good, but also what society has generally accepted as wrong for countless centuries. However, as morals inevitably decline, and the focus on OUR rights as individuals (which Steve alludes to) takes precedence over and above God’s moral laws, the idea of being gratified, no matter the consequences, seems to grow exponentially.  It is symptomatic of a world spiraling out of control: a world gone mad!

Our base instincts tell us to do whatever makes us feel good. If we have no moral high ground that we aspire to, no God with whom we can agree with on such vitally important matters, and no Godly discernment (Holy Spirit) to give us guidance, then every evil imaginable becomes less and less harmful and wicked; and we adopt the idea that we are only put upon this earth for the purpose of self-pleasure. With such a lack of restraint, and a true ignorance and hatred for anything primordial, we only become emboldened to do even more horrific evil. 

All this to say: we don’t “LISTEN” to God. Every evil we commit is due to the fact that we don’t take God at His Word. This was the “original” sin that got us to where we are at today.

Here is God speaking to us from Scripture concerning this very subject, and here is the fallout for not taking Him at His Word:

“Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. (NIV, 1st Corinthians 6:9-11).”

I'm trying to catch up on the blogs I follow and I noticed you broke your silence about a month ago. I couldn't agree more with this entry. It just amazes me how much pressure we're constantly feeling to accept every possible sexual deviancy as if it were wholesome. I even have a few facebook friends from church who regularly post pro-homosexual things. Makes me shake my head...

The pressure is certainly on, Cathy. The distinction between right and wrong is certainly more noticeable now than ever before (at least in our lifetimes). And in so many ways that works out to be a good thing. Sharp contrasts like this sexual deviancy with true godliness, will only work to define holiness even more.

I know it is sad "professing" Christians support the gay agenda. It makes me pretty sick to even think about such things.

Thanks for frequenting the blog. I don't always publish news stuff as I am pretty tied u with family matters right now. But I do have a new blog started, and hope to do more writing in the future with a few new authors.

Thanks, Kathy! :)
