I saw something on video last night that troubles me.
We were watching a BBC crime drama, fairly new, Shetland; and into the middle of the story, for no reason that had anything to do with the plot, the writers dropped a “gay relationship” between two young men.
And of course, when this came to light, every freakin’ character in the play was totally cool with it, and the one kid’s father abjectly apologized for not being AOK with this and had to promise his full support from then on–having to earn his son’s approval, don’t you know. Even the lad’s grandparents–who now know they won’t be having any great-grandchildren–are just thrilled to learn their grandson has a boyfriend. They practically turn cartwheels over it.
Excuse me! Can this possibly be true? That right here, during the snap of the fingers that’s my own lifetime, behavior that’s been condemned for thousands of years, by virtually every human society on earth, is now applauded? How did that happen? I mean, okay, I was here, I saw the “gay” activists and their sponsors work day and night for this, tirelessly, fanatically: but still–!
Can it truly be that they succeeded in changing everybody? Damnit, the Soviet Union outlawed religion for 70 years, and the commies weren’t shy about persecuting Christians and Jews. They shut down churches, arrested the clergy, and indoctrinated several generations into atheism–complete with youth camps. Young Pioneers! Komsomol!
And today there is no more Soviet Union, but the Russian Orthodox Church is stronger than ever.
So is it true that a bunch of “gays” succeeded where the coercive might of the Soviet Union failed?
Is it true–or is what we’re seeing only wishful thinking, and subtle messaging, by more “gay allies” among the entertainment media?
If they really, truly have won universal approval of homosexuality, then why do they have to keep running to the courts to get their agenda shoved down our throats? Why is it necessary to hunt down the last Christian baker in a city and try to force him to create a “gay wedding” cake? Why should they even care, or even notice, that a few dozen people still aren’t with the program?
I don’t accept what I’m seeing on the screen as reality. Okay, sure, liberals, Democrats, moral anarchists–they’re on the bandwagon, they don’t have to be coerced. But those are not normal people! If they are, then “normal” has indeed fallen upon hard times.
I think our little playmates in the media are trying to hypnotize us.
And worst of all, most damnable and blameworthy of all, is the way “liberal” churches, seminaries, and individual clergy have rejected God’s word and taken their own words into their mouths as a voice of lying prophecy, attempting to deceive the Biblically illiterate. They themselves are probably strangers to the Bible. They run as fast as they can to keep up with the “Gay is Good” campaign. That their phony “churches” are hemorrhaging membership does not seem to concern them.
But then if the media were telling the truth about the state of our civilization’s morality today… those churches wouldn’t be losing all those members, would they?
As a general rule of thumb, try this: Whatever liberals say is important is not important. Whatever they say is so, is not. So if they say all white people are racists, that means that in reality, very few white people are racists. If they say human activity is causing global temperatures to rise, that means it isn’t. You get the idea.
Once you realize that they’re lying all the time, it’s easy to laugh them off.
The answer, I am sorry to say, is “Yes.” At least for some pastors. Especially liberal pastors, if that’s not a contradiction in terms.
So it’s five years ago and a notorious pervert, who’s already been publicly charged as such, is running for mayor of New York City… and this walking bird-bath of a pastor likens him to Moses and Ezekiel.
Liberal Christians–an oxymoron, in my view, on a par with land-dwelling trout–always seek this world’s approval and always sacrifice the integrity of God’s Word to get it.
Here’s something I wasn’t aware of until I found it mentioned today in the latest issue of Biblical Archaeology Review. “Contemporary interpreters” have been adding their own words to the Holy Scriptures–to make God’s Word conform to the world and lose its power to transform the world.
Galatians 3:28 says, “In Christ there is neither Jew nor Greek, neither slave nor free, nor male and female.” All are one in Christ: all are equal before the cross.
In doing so, they try to make the Word of God bear false witness against the speaker, God Himself. The Bible condemns homosexual practice in no uncertain terms. It is a sin. Period. It is as if they were to insist that God would bless idolatry.
Corrupting the Scripture is surely a worse sin than homosexual acting-out.
The Law, in the Old Testament, requires false prophets to be put to death.
But we give them power and prestige.
O Lord! Remember that these things are done without our consent, against our will, and over our objections. In Jesus’ name, amen.
According to “new guidelines from the church,” children “must be allowed to identify as transgender.” Ultimately, explain the idiots in charge, this will “wipe out bullying.”
Verses from Romans spring to mind. “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools” (1:22). And whatever happened to “And be not conformed to this world…”? (12:2) But of course the one verse today’s geniuses have a real problem with is Genesis 1:27, “[M]ale and female created He them.”
You blockheads. If it really were possible to erase a sin from the earth by writing man-made laws against it, don’t you think someone would’ve done it by now? “Bullying”! You saps are being bullied by a Godless, idol-worshipping world, and you don’t even know it. Because it originates in the human heart and comes out from there, there will always be bullying. Only Jesus Christ can save us from our sins. Allowing kids to “dress up” for school in tutus and firemen’s helmets, while requiring everybody else to pretend they don’t see it, is not going to save anybody.
But as long as you’re conforming to the world, what else matters? You work hard to get the approval of the pagans. And you’re welcome to it. But in the words of an old Caribbean spiritual, “Where you gonna run to, all on That Day?”
