This week saw the end of the long standing ban on homosexuals serving in the military. This is truly a sad day for our normal men and women serving their country. With the new rules, they will find themselves at times being forced to put themselves in possibly compromising positions with sexual perverts that would even make me extremely uncomfortable and distracted from my duties.
I’ll make no bones about it. Homosexuality is not normal. It is not a normal way of life. God calls it an abomination in Leviticus 20:13 when He says:
“If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.”
If it is supposed to be a normal and acceptable lifestyle, why would God speak so harshly against it? I also can’t understand how so many homosexuals claim to be Bible believing Christians and say that the Bible does not condemn their sinful ways. Men and women who stand in the pulpit as preachers of God’s Word and tell their congregations that God says it’s okay to be that way are liars and should be defrocked and run out of the church.
God looks at those who commit same-sex sex the same way he looks at murders and adulterers, all of which are punishable by death.
What’s even more upsetting is how the public school system has been teaching children as young as kindergarten and first grade that homosexual perversion is normal and should be accepted. Jesus warned us about leading children astray in Matthew 18:5-6 when He said:
“Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.”
Business, state and federal governments, public schools and now the military are openly endorsing and approving of homosexual rights and homosexual lifestyles. This is a true sign of God’s judgment on America which can be found in Romans 1:18-32
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.
Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.
For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.
And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God’s decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.”
This describes America to a tee and also presents a very scary picture for the future. Every time a society has become as decadent and immoral as America is today, God has destroyed that nation and ended their rule. His judgment is felt by all, even those that remain righteous and faithful. Look at Daniel and his friends who were captured, made slaves and thrown into the fire for failing to bow to the king.
If America does not repent and turn from its wicked ways and stop approving of such perverted and sinful ways, then we are surely headed to God’s swift and complete judgment. God’s judgment will be unavoidable to all. I don’t know about you, but that scares me more than things such as nuclear war, famine, disease, physical abuse or anything else that could possibly happen.
