In my last column, I expressed dismay toward the government for enforcing an anti-biblical lifestyle upon our society by law. Do you realize that those who choose a homosexual lifestyle make up less than 2% of the population of the United States? To be sure, this small group is vocal, powerful, wealthy, and well organized. They are also clever strategists. Nonetheless, when 2% of the population is able to impose their views upon the vast majority, it should cause us no small discomfort.
The sad part is that many young Christians have been influenced, or perhaps brainwashed, to believe that sexually alternative lifestyles are matters of personal choice. They have come to equate this "choice" with choosing a different color suit or a different color dress. I believe that this errant thinking can be traced to the failure of the pulpit and the preachers of today. Today's churches either condemn homosexuals and homosexuality without explanations, or they have become silenced completely on the subject. No wonder young Christians have been thoroughly confused and easily misled into seeing homosexuality as a social justice and human-rights issue.
God's Word is very clear that sexual activity is between a man and a woman in a marriage relationship for life. Any other expression is an affront to the Creator. That is why we must view these issues biblically and not emotionally.
We need only to look to history (biblical and secular) to see that whenever a government sanctions that which is contrary to God's Word, it will bring calamity on itself. Remember the ancient cities of Sodom and Gomorrah?
On June 2, 2010, President Obama ordered government agencies to extend additional benefits to same-sex partners of federal employees. Now he is ready to sign the repeal of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" military policy.
As taxpayers, we find ourselves overwhelmed as the government continues to spend our money as if it is from their own personal checking accounts. But when federal spending supports homosexuality and homosexuals, it is truly a slap in the face to the 200-million Christians and Catholics in America who believe that homosexual marriages are anti-God and anti-Bible.
So when the foundation is destroyed, what can the righteous do? I think the righteous can do several things.
1.They can be very careful how they vote on November 2, 2010.
2.They can refuse to be intimated by false accusations.
3.They can speak the truth but always in love.
4.They can share Jesus Christ as the only deliverer from all forms of sin and rebellion. After all, we ourselves once rebelled against God.
5.Finally, the most important thing that the righteous can do is to pray and intercede for our nation.
Have you signed the covenant to pray daily for America between July 4 and November 2? If not, please go to http://www.GodSaveOurCountry.com and sign up.
We may be in dire straits, but our hope is in Christ.
