Just recently, we've noticed an increased effort by homosexuals to pursue and/or force their lifestyles into law as special rights. Of course, this is basically anathema as it relates to the core of the issue. If one is accustomed to a broader view of the situation, morality seems to take a back seat with millions of Americans in our modern age and time. Yet, there are thousands of Christians who look upon it with confusion, as if they can't understand it, and seem to be otherwise de-sensitized to what is happening to America's system of law.
Before we go on, I'd like to share a little something about early Supreme Court judges, and the view that Thomas S. Grimke, I pioneer statesmen of early America, 1827 to be exact. He says-
It is emphatically a court of the whole people and of every State, of the Government of the Union and of the Government of every State. It is as independent of the President and Congress as of the Governor and Legislature of Sourth Carolina. Its members are selected from different States, and its bar gathers within its bounds the talents and learning, the courage, virtue, and patriotism, of the East and the West, of the NOrth and the South....No one, indeed, can possibly read the judgments of this tribunal-equally beneficent and illustrious-and not be deeply impressed with its wisdom and learning, its moral courage and justice, its high sense of duty, its love of peace and order, its indpendence, dignity, and patriotism. I know not any body of men who are entitled to more enlightened admiration, more sincere gratitude, more profound respect for their talents, learning, virtues, and services. Theirs is indeed a parental guardianship, full of moral dignity and beauty, sustained by the energy of wisdom and adorned by the simplicity of justice and truth.
And that last word, proclaimed by Grimke was ... truth.
Of this, there can be no doubt, truth adorned their every thought and action, as we will soon see in the honorable and wise Mr. Hooker, in this one quote...
Of law there can be no less acknowledged than that her seat is the bosom of God, her voice the harmony of the world. All things in heaven and earth do her homage; the very least feel her care, and the greatest are not exempt from her power. Both angels and men, and creatures of what condition soever, though each in a different sort and name, yet all with one uniform consent admire her as the mother of their peace and joy.
And those words, ...her seat is the bosom of God, are what should stick the most, as civil law sets the standard of what is right conduct and likewise wrong conduct for society, but, the law itself has to have something be based upon, or its foundation rather. What was it Grimke said about the judges he was giving a speech in tribute to? A few select words ... justice, moral dignity and lastly, and most importantly ... truth!! This is the foundation that our laws have, is in truth ... then we ask ourselves, what is truth? Truth is God's Word, as it came first, and is what every civil nation has based their system of law on.
Now, you may be wondering what is all has to do with sodomy ... well, if you're of the current generation, you're probably not accustomed to the earliest laws on sodomy, and the reason for this, is the past 15-20 years or so in education has been strictly controlled by the liberals whose ideology is of the mind that "Separation of Church and State" means "you aren't allowed to mention any parts of the Bible in school or any public place, when, to the contrary, that's not what "Separation of Church and State" was designed to do - "Separation of Church and State" was designed to keep the government from interfering with our Christian faith, by not telling us what we may or may not do. We may, as Christians pray in a public setting amongst colleagues, classmates, lead by the prayer, in an office of authority consisting of a city council we may pray if we so desire ... yet, in all these places, children and adults alike are being silenced because of our beliefs. If you notice, however, in the classroom setting, during a time of holdiay festivites teachers are permitted at halloween for example, to teach about witches, demons, goblins, devils and the like, at easter they may teach about the "easter bunny" instead of our Lord's triumph over the grave, at Christmas, they may teach about "Santa Claus" instead of the birth of our Lord. Among the older age classes, in the higher learning, high school for example, in science, teachers may teach Darwinian evolution instead of the account of Creation found in Genesis 1 of the Bible. So, for the most part, you can see how liberals along with their allies the ACLU have used their definition of "Separation of Church and State" to take control of our schools, using it as a tool for persecution.
The same applies to sodomy, only, in sodomy, it is taken to a more extreme level, as if their defintion of "Separation of Church and State" wasn't already extreme enough...
The first fact that must be acknowledged before all others are considered - Sodomy is wrong. That's the first thing that you must remember.
Why is it wrong?
The first reasons and laws against homosexuality can be found in God's Word
'So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and famle he created them.'
So this means that God specifically made them male and female so they could be attracted to each other, as he made them compatible. This is also symbolizes God's plan of salvation, as Jesus is the head of the church and wants us to come and be united with Him in spirit being also fruitful and spreading the good news so other souls may be won.
This next verse deals with Sodom and Gomorrah, in which God destroyed as a result of men perverting God's nature-
'Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom-both young and old-surrounded the house. They called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them." Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him and said, "No, my friends. Don't do this wicked thing. Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But don't do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof.'
These next two verses in Leviticus, deal specifically with the law that God ordered concerning homosexuality-
"'Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.'
"'If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.'
These next verses in Judges deal with the horrible death of the concubine of which the homosexuals abused by rape unto death, which proves the wickedness of the homosexual mindset...
"While they were enoying themselves, some of the wicked men of the city surrounded the house. Pounding on the door, they shouted to the old man who owned the house, "Bring out the man who came to your house so we can have sex with him." The owner of the housewent outside and said to them, "No, my friends, don't be so vile. SInce this man is my guest, don't do this disgracesful thing. Look, here is my viergin daughter, and his concubine. I will bring them out to you now, and you can use them and do to them whatever you wish. But to this man, don't do such a disgraceful thing." But the men would not listen to him. So the man took his concubine and setn her outside to the, and they raped her and abused her throughout the night, and at dawn they let her go. At day-break the woman went back to the house where her master was stayig, fell down at the door and lay there until daylight."
Now, today, homosexuals through the reprobate state that they exist, deny God's condemnation of homosexuality, and even many heterosexual people will deny it, and so, they look past the Old Testament and say, "Let's go to the New Testament" clearly referring to Jesus life that never mentioned certain practices, but always condemned sin, which He, Himself, lived the perfect example of a sin-free life, and it was at death that he took on the sin of the world to death, and His death reperesents what sin does to the Spirit, only He proved it with actualy sacrificing His life on our behalf, so that we would have an escape from the punishment that is hell as the end result of sin. The second thing that His death on the Cross represents is that we must die out to sin (meaning: Get sin out of our life), and ask Jesus for forgiveness, putting on a new self (new life), in that we want to serve Satan no longer.
Now, the Apostle Paul, a Servant of Jesus Christ can testify to these things, as to what rebellion against God's Holy Spirit does because of the sinful desire that homosexuality. So, let us examine what the New Testament says through the Apostle Paul in the book of Romans.
'Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator-who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. IN the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. Futhermore, since they did not think it worthwile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not be done. They have bcome filled with evrer kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only contnue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.'
So, you see, that passage in Romans is describing our day and age perfectly. So many who proclaim to be "Christians" have sit back in Church every Sunday and do not care what is happening to our society, and how our laws are being changed to be more benefiting those committing the perversions that seek to destroy us. Book stores that sell filthy pornographic magazines are a contributor of the problem we are having in society, as the verse where it says "even the women have abandoned natural relations with men" can testify to this, are boldly proclaiming this day and age to be lesbians.
The key here is, the law is only as powerful as those who allow it, as the law rests in the hands of those whom you elect to office. As Christians, if we will put our minds to it, we can stop a lot of the filth that is being peddled. But to go on a bit further before I close...
These next verses in the little book of Judge help to explain to us what the final punishment for the sin of homosexuality is...
Jude verses 7-8
'In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding townds gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They servre as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire. In the very same way, these dreasmers pollute their own bodies, reject authority and slander celestial beings.'
And 1 Corinthians 6:9-11
'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 many were, but praise be to God, they have now changed are washed from the sin that kept them from entering the door to peace and assurance.
So, after all that, we need to ask the homosexual this one thing ... What moral backing do they have to commit the sinful act of sodomy?
And the truth is, they have no moral reasoning whatsoever to support their lifestyle ... in other words, they don't have a leg to stand on. For the Bible specifically prohibits the practice. There are no reasons, biologically, physically, psychologcally, or otherwise ... homosexuality is an abomination (the key word: abomination) in the eyes of Almighty God. Therefore, it must be avoided.
Now, I know there are many of you that are good Christian folks, and are concerned about the issue as many other Christians are, including myself. Many ministers of churches are being persecuted for so-called "hate-crimes" laws in areas all around the country for not participating in the union of same-sex couples, and the ultimate goal is to silence Christians, and thereby, forcefully manipulate the judicial system in their favor, favoring the wickedness that is sodomy. So, the sodomites have the "hate-crimes" backwards. It is the sodomites themselves who are committing the hate-crime! Make no mistake about it! And whenever those of us proclaiming to be heterosexuals do not stand up for what we believe is right, we are also condemned in the same manner as the homosexuals, because we permit the homosexual to legislate their depravity onto the majority of society, a massive hate-crime. Added to this, is the fact that we are not only permitting them to legislate their depravity, but we are also standing for, or approving of the indoctrination of school children and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases.
My fear is that it will only get worse before it gets better. So, stand up and fight for what is right, and vote for judges and representatives that will also represent your views as American Christians, but most importantly on what the truth is, and what is the truth, again? The Word of the Living God.
You have that chance, in approximately 67 days from now, when we have the chance to vote for Sen. John McCain and Sarah Palin!
God bless you all, and may He continue to bless America!
