A few years ago I heard various friends and acquaintances ask the piercing question: "How can God stay His hand from our America? Are we not approaching levels of sin as Sodom and Gommorah?"
I don't hear that comment any longer for it seems we are no longer protected from the national consequences of blatant sin - even the sinful choices and leadership of our President.
Just this morning I read the following account from Family Research Council where President Obama named "... Kevin Jennings, founder of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), to be Assistant Deputy Secretary for the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools. GLSEN is the chief national advocacy group promoting policies to force affirmation of homosexuality in schools, beginning in kindergarten. Jennings wrote the foreword for a book, "Queering Elementary Education," which among other things praises teaching masturbation to a 7-year-old girl. ..."http://www.frc.org/get.cfm?i=WU09F01&f=PG07J01
Secondly, earlier today, on the White House webpage we see that Mr. Obama has named June LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL, AND TRANSGENDER PRIDE MONTH, 2009. See for yourself at:http://www.whitehouse.gov/the_press_office/Presidential-Proclamation-LGBT-Pride-Month/
In the presidential proclamation, President Barack H. Obama states "The LGBT rights movement has achieved great progress," Obama states in the official proclamation, "but there is more to be done. LGBT youth should feel safe to learn without the fear of harassment, and LGBT families and seniors should be allowed to live their lives with dignity and respect."The proclamation, released earlier today, credits the LGBT movement with being a factor in more Americans who ascribe to those groups "living their lives openly today than ever before."
He uses the proclamation to emphasize LGBT-related initiatives that he intends to pursue in the future -- both domestically and internationally."I have joined efforts at the United Nations to decriminalize homosexuality around the world," he states. "Here at home, I continue to support measures to bring the full spectrum of equal rights to LGBT Americans."
With the efforts to push through "Hate Crimes" legislation, what happens to those who uphold the Bible, God's Holy Word?
What happens to America as President Obama leads us into the realm of the legitimization of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexualism and transgenderism?
If he's a Christian, as he has stated, he is not unaware of God's word regarding Sodom and Gommorrah. All the more concerning having a form of knowledge but denying it is weighty business.
One oft quoted portion of Scripture down through hundreds and hundreds of years by people who honored God's Word in word and deed is taken from the wisdom book, Proverbs.
"For the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom."Proverbs 1:7
The following passage from Romans contains a clear word regarding men or women who substitute the truth for a lie.
Romans 1:21-29 "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."
In closing, God hates sin. He is not a toothless lion but rather a loving and Holy God who judges and will judge wickedness.
This kind of proclamation made by President Barack Obama is a proclamation that promotes and encourages wickedness.
As a Christian, I could not let this news go without expressing my horror at what he has done as the president of the United States during the "worst economic crisis in our history". I believe it is safe to add to that list "The most immoral and corrupt time in our history" as well.
Great Job Mr. Obama...what will be next, legalization of murder,other than abortions, children having sex with animals or the return to Aushwitz? Whatever it is will be no surprise after all we have seen in his first 12? days. You sir are an abomination to this country , may God's will be done in your life. I pray that Americans wake up before it is too late, or is it already?
I Peter 5:8"Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour."
Finally, it is important to understand that although I believe this proclamation to be unacceptable, it by no means should be taken that I hate a particular group of people. As I wrote in my last post, I have a deep seated genuine concern for the behavior people are engaged in and have more of a hatred for it that than the individuals themselves. Sexual preference should be something that is meant to be private, why do the people who disagree have to be forced to accept such an agenda?
Why have all other holidays been only one day, our countries day of celebration is one day, Christmas, for a country founded on biblical principles-one day, etc yet one of the most contraversial issues in our culture today, still not recognized by the majority gets and entire month? Sometimes, as previously stated, I wonder if he and his administration desire the divide .
If Obamas plan includes for the betterment of All mankind why are the majority being ignored?
I believe we have the right to respect eachother without having to agree on sexual preferences but also have the right to free speech regarding these issues.
