Godless And Immoral Culture Embraces Homosexual Marriage

invar:

Abomination

An excellent observation and a witness against both the church and the culture.

Originally posted on Leo McNeil:

A great evil is sweeping our nation through judicial decree. In states all over the country, bans on homosexual marriage are being overturned by Federal Courts. In most states these bans were voted on by the people, usually by large majorities. The latest state to see its law overturned by judicial decree is Michigan. Within minutes of the Court overturning the Michigan law dozens of sodomites and lesbians got married at liberal county buildings all with the media present and cheering. To believe this wasn’t coordinated with the Court is to suspend rational thought. Homosexuals wouldn’t be marrying but for the decadent and godless culture America finds herself in.

Scripture is quite clear that marriage involves a man and a woman and that sexual relations between members of the same sex are an evil abomination. This history of mankind is such that until the 20th century no culture allowed people…

Accepting Evil As Good In America

Evil-as-good

America has become a land where evil is called good, and good is called evil – and instituted by the force of government.  Woe is us.

Lukewarm, fallen away. That is the best description I can think of as it pertains to the Christian Church by and large in America.  Millions of professing followers of Jesus Christ that have bought the lie that they should not judge good from evil or stand against wickedness and as a result, we lost the culture to hedonists and are ruled by a tyranny from Washington D.C.

Some pastors are valiantly attempting to wake up their congregations and speak the truth without compromise about the condition our nation is in spiritually.  Pastor Bill Randles appears to be such a man, and his astute observations were opined on his blog.

We here agree wholeheartedly with his assessments and warnings.

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! – Isaiah 5:20

On The Acceptance Of Evil…

…Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:  That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.(2 Thessalonians 2:6-10)

Evil thrives on lies. The fall of man came about by the acceptance of a lie. Satan himself is the father of lies. Lying and evil are indivisible.

We are currently living in a time of the mass acceptance of evil. Daily the case is being successfully made for things such as homosexual marriage, abortion, pedophilia, the justification of Islamic terror. People are unwittingly being conditioned to accept the previously unacceptable through the various forms of mass media.

It is surreal to see otherwise reasonable people advocate what only a short while ago would have been unthinkable to them. How have we gotten to this point? Evil has been successfully marketed to mainstream America.

I remember the day after the 9-11 attacks, going to the post office to buy stamps and being handed a packet of Islamic”Eid” stamps recently released by the post office. I politely asked for anything but Islamic stamps, only to receive this retort from the normally friendly postman,  ”Christianity has done just as much terror as any other religion, we don’t have any room to complain!”.

We regularly receive the same hostility from otherwise normal people, whenever the subject of homosexual marriage comes up, as it has frequently lately. People who wouldn’t have dreamed of advocating any position endorsing so-called “gay rights” are now angry if such rights are ever so much as called into question. What’s going on here?

I believe what we are seeing here is the onset of something called “the strong delusion” warned about in the scripture above and other places in scripture. It follows upon and is a consequence of another phenomenon called “the apostasy”, that is the falling away.

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,  That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.  Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;( 2 Thess 2:1-3)

It is not only christians who will fall away in many cases, but the Judeo Christian world is undergoing a departure from its christian worldview, and is in a vigorous process of repudiating the religious bedrock of its own culture, as well as the institutions that sprang out of it. This is predicted in the second Psalm;

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?2The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.(Psalm 2:1-3)

The prophesied “great apostasy” includes the departure of much of the Christian church from the faith once and for all delivered. But it goes far beyond it. The “Kings of the earth and their rulers” , that is the leaders, educators, clergy and opinion and culture shapers share a consensus that  the influence of christianity is bondage that must be cast off!

For example,  by means of a constant stream of media propaganda and sophisticated marketing, homosexuality has been sold as a viable option to mainstream America. People are embracing the lie that has been sold to them. Without thought they are parroting the propaganda. This is true even of many confessing Christians!

A particularly effective aspect of the marketing is the dishonest but deliberate confusion of the (valid) Civil Rights movement of the 1960′s, with  ”homosexual rights”.

This has been effective because as authors like Shelby Steele point out , a constant drumbeat of “white guilt” heaped upon Americans by the media and academia for the legacy of slavery and racism, has made us vulnerable to any accusations of that nature, whether true or false. The last thing anyone wants to be called in America is a racist.

By the time homosexual activists deliberately hijacked the civil rights movement, claiming to be the new victims of discrimination, too many of us had already been put on the defensive to raise an objection. Propagandistic programs in schools such as “Days of silence” , in which solidarity is created between gay and straight students by means of keeping silence, have been largely effective.

Seizing upon dubious martyrs , such as Matthew Shepherd, who was killed in a drug deal gone bad, has also played into our American sense of sympathy for the victims. This is the logic behind “Anti-bullying” campaigns in our schools.

When Homosexual activists in the Media realized that most Americans didn’t actually know a homosexual, they wrote them into the scripts of sitcoms and talk shows, to “humanize” the perversion and break down resistance to it.  Now through trash such as “Friends”, “Will and Grace” and “Ellen”, everyone knows a homosexual, and they like them!

Perhaps one of the greatest factors that has brainwashed our population is “Political correctness” which is a powerful factor in both the suppression of truth and in the promotion of the big lies. Succumbing to political correctness actually causes on to hold to a cognitive dissonance, we cannot speak the truth we know.

Everybody knows the emperor isn’t wearing any clothes, but they can’t say it, they must praise the style of his “clothes” to stay on good terms with the emperor.

Everybody knows that Islam is evil, violent and anti american to the core, but few can say it. Everybody knows homosexuality is twisted, and unclean but few dare say it. Honesty has been strangled to death in the political warfare of our times.

Instead we are strongly pressured to corrupt ourselves, and to literally sell our own souls in the service of the lie. We are in danger of becoming reprobate, no longer able to distinguish good from evil! Worse than that we are in danger of actually being biased against good and in favor of evil.

Theodore Dalrymple is insightful here on how this pressure has succeeded in getting us to accept evil…

When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. ~Theodore  Dalrymple   

This is as good an insight as any I have heard yet, as to how many are losing their soul, accommodating and even championing evil. They have been conditioned by PC to first be silent in the presence of obvious lies, eventually to  ”assent to the lies”, and in many cases have been forced to repeat them over and over again.

Homosexuality is just one of the previously unthinkable “big Lies” which we have received. There are many related abominations commonly accepted, which fly in the face of all reason, logic and experience .

People are being set up for the ultimate soul-destroying lie Paul warned about in the above quote. The lie is the old lie, that man can be “as gods”, defining for ourselves truth, morality,virtue and meaning with no reference to the God of the Bible.

The rot of our society is almost complete, the only hope for anyone is to take seriously the once well-known promise of Jesus

“If you continue in my words you will be my disciples indeed, and you will know the truth and the truth shall set you free!”(John 8:32).

MarxoFascist Says ‘White Jesus’ Responsible For “Enslavement, Conquest, Colonialism & Genocide”

Genocidal Jesus

Liberal “author” Tim Wise said on CNN that the historical depiction of Jesus as white has resulted in slavery and genocide.

Liberal-fascism/Socialism is a religion to be prized above all.  This is why disciples of Marx and Engels go berserk any time someone dares to assert the culture that made America the greatest nation on earth, with liberty as we understand it, never before existing before our time.

White Guilt is a doctrine of the left that coincide with their sacraments of conscience-free homosexual sex and abortions for all.  Joining hands with Jihadists to denounce Christianity and biblical moral values is no longer enough for the Left.  Asserting White Guilt and accusations of genocide is the new libel to be included when describing biblical Christianity and it’s adherents.

It would be folly to ignore this growing meme being preached by the true believers in wiping out the “white menace’  and parroted by the clapping seals of the Propaganda media.  It is a fact of history that the successful demonization of a selected group of people results in government-sponsored criminalization and slaughter of the people they have demonized.  Make no mistake, because the Left seeks to do just that.

Blood libels are nothing new to maniacs hell-bent on erasing a people they hate.  Radical Muslims teach their children blood-libel, that Jews use blood in Passover matzohs – which makes it easier to kill Jews indiscriminately to spread Islam by force.  The radical Left in America teach that ‘white Christianity’ is responsible for slavery, conquest and genocide.  That too, designed to make it easier for their people to accept what they intend to do to ‘white Christians’.

The secular-humanist/Marxist juggernaut is on a rampage after comments from Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly opining about Santa and Jesus being ‘white’, this followed by the A&E firing of Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty due discussing his views of homosexuality in a GQ interview.  So they trot out self-loathing white and Conservative-hating moron Tim Wise – who has been writing for some time about his zealous wish for white Christians and Conservatives to be eradicated.

Make no mistake, this is the deepening phase of institutionalized persecution just getting ramped up and the Left is as gleeful as it can be over the prospects of criminalizing and eradicating those of us they hate.  Having witnessed institutionalized persecution in a third world hellhole, I can say unequivocally – that the Christians in this country are not ready to handle what our brethren have to deal with on a daily basis, and I’m seeing the same underlying mentality at work here in the former land of the free.

Remember this adage that the hedonist Left follows and knows to be effective: if they tell a lie often enough – it becomes accepted as the truth among those who are ignorant and do not think.

Duck Dynasty Star Fired For Expressing His Faith And Opinion About Homosexuality

MarkofGayBeast

A&E has fired Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson following remarks about his faith and opinion of homosexuality he made in a recent profile in GQ.

Genesis 19 reveals the nature of a society that considers homosexuality good and what they do to those who refuse to embrace it.  Revelation reveals that at the End of the Age, all persons must have a mark in their forehead or right hand in order to make a living.  Today we see what happens when one refuses the mark of the homosexual beast in your thoughts and actions: you get fired.

The star of the Duck Dynasty series Phil Robertson discovers the cost of daring to openly state his faith and opinion when asked about it in an interview in GQ.  He was placed on ‘indefinite suspension’ for daring to speak ill of what he considers to be a sin.

Robertson discussed his religious beliefs in a GQ interview about sin, and said, “start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.”  The GQ writer paraphrases the Apostle Paul in Corinthians noting the passage, “don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers — they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

Robertson added during the interview, “It seems like, to me, a vagina — as a man — would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”

That was enough to send the homo lobbying groups into the stratosphere with rage and vitriol – and A&E decided to fire it’s number one show’s star for his personal comments and beliefs in an interview outside of their show or network.  Of course they say he’s on “permanent hiatus”, which in newspeak means “fired”.   What this also means is yet another confirmation that we are not entitled to our own personal religious or moral or political beliefs if they run contrary to the mob and the hordes of hedonists and Leftists in this Obamanation.

Amerika is no longer a land with freedom of speech, faith or belief.  We are become a land of Sodom, and intolerant of anyone who does not share the mark of it’s beast.

I would hope and pray this entire cast and family of this hit show – walk and tell A&E to shove their show and contract. But we will see if money talks and faith walks by those made wealthy by an entertainment industry that promotes homosexuality.

U.S. Mission Logo Reveals An Ominous Spectre

octobama

Like everything in Obama’s regime – the tentacles of government reach everywhere, and now they’re proud to advertise that fact.

Everything we do is monitored, recorded and collected by Obama’s NSA.  Anything you do digitally or online is monitored as well as anything you say or text on a phone.  But such power is still not enough to sate the appetite to know everything about everyone, everywhere.

As Communist Maxine Waters (D-CA) let slip some time ago: ““The President has put in place an organization with the kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life”

It is fitting then that The Office of National Intelligence is sporting a logo it created for a mission to launch a rocket carrying classified monitoring payload featuring an octopus wrapping its tentacles across the globe with the slogan, “Nothing is beyond our reach.”

NRO Octopus Logo

 

Clearly the Regime would like to instill the fear in all people that nothing is beyond their reach, indeed the MarxoFascists have their tentacles in everything from your healthcare to the food on your plate.  However, I think this logo fits in perfectly with other totalitarian propaganda in the past – and reveals a little more behind the curtain of what the Obama regime is all about.

Christians Face Culture of Fear, Intimidation in Obama’s Military Today

Obama regime “bound and determined to eradicate the military and its heritage of any references to our Christian heritage and Christian beliefs”.

“On Veterans Day, Family Research Council and the Restore Military Religious Freedom Coalition honor and pray for our troops, especially those who are being discriminated against for living out their faith,” said FRC President Tony Perkins. “More and more service members are facing harassment, demotion, and formal reprimands simply for being Bible-believing Christians.”

“They’ve been prohibited from sharing their faith, forbidden from praying publicly, and dismissed from duty for refusing to surrender their religious convictions,” Perkins said.

“Defending America’s freedom shouldn’t mean surrendering theirs,” he said, “especially given that the Constitution they have sworn to uphold guarantees religious liberty as all Americans’ ‘first freedom.’”

Twisting Jesus Into A Socialist – The Leftist Perversion of Christianity

Jesus-Socialist

Beware, for the MarxoFascist Liberal-Left is convincing the Lukewarm in the faith that being a good Christian, means being a good Socialist.

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves – Matthew 7:15

There is a blending of politics and Christianity that is being done for the specific purpose of REMAKING America.  To turn us from a Representative Republic with a Christian heritage – into a pure Secular Socialist Democracy which will lead ultimately to despotism.   The effort is to replace America’s Christian foundations with NeoLeft Secularist ideals of a Socialist utopia.  To do that – they have successfully helped to steer Americans away from traditional Christianity, to embrace an idea of religion totally alien to our nation’s foundations and principles.  Communist and Socialist regimes always replace religion with the worship of the state.  Ultimately they seek a society where the Elites will regulate everything including commerce, property, wealth, speech, welfare and even how you think and believe.  The once blasphemous idea that Socialism is good for America, is gaining ground because it is being preached daily from the news and entertainment media, and from political panderers that morality means big government Socialism – and more directly from some pulpits – that Jesus taught and expects His followers to practice Socialism.

These are the people who are busy rewriting our history to better match their self-loathing anti-American worldview.  These are the ideologues who want God and religious exercise removed, banned and stripped from the public and private square.  These are the people who demand homosexual marriage, indoctrinate our youth with dumbed-down self-esteem garbage and pushing aberrant sex practices and lifestyles on elementary school kids.  These are the ideologues who demand government handouts for selected groups of government dependents, and think big government Socialism is the reason the government exists.  These are the ideologues who do not trust you or I with speech, guns, private property, wealth or liberty to live our lives.  They may all come from separate left-wing groups – but they are all of the Leftist/Socialist mindset and nearly all of them actively campaign for the remaking of America into their image, because they see America and Americans as evil.  They think it is their moral duty to fix the evil that this nation’s existence has wrought upon the globe – because for many of them who claim the mantle of Christianity, they believe all of that rotgut is what Jesus preached and stood for.

They preach Jesus was a Socialist, and they now equate that being a good Christian DEMANDS you be a good Socialist.  The religious and secular Left in America are transforming government to replace the church in ministering to the poor and needy.  Eventually, as all Marxist/Socialist regimes do – they will replace Jesus with the state, and demand government be worshipped.  For Socialist/Marxist despots will suffer no allegiance to any other but themselves and their systems.

 Michael Youssef has two essays on this subject worth the time to read.

Keep Jesus Out of Your Socialism

The headline of the full-page ad asks, “What Would Jesus Cut?—A budget is a moral document.” The text continues, “Our faith tells us that the moral test of a society is how it treats the poor.”

The ad was produced by Sojourners, a self-described “evangelical” organization whose slogan is “Faith in Action for Social Justice.” The ad was signed by Sojourners president Jim Wallis and more than two dozen Religious Left pastors, theologians, and activists. They urge our legislators to ask themselves, “What would Jesus cut?” from the federal budget.

How would you answer that question? My answer would be, “It’s a nonsense question. Your premise is faulty. Your priorities are not His priorities.”

Jesus had many opportunities to confront the Roman government about its spending priorities. It was, after all, one of the most brutal regimes in history. If the question “What would Jesus cut?” has any biblical relevance, we should be able to cite instances where Jesus lectured the Roman oppressors the same way the Religious Left lectures America.

Just compare ancient Rome with America today. Rome sent its armies out to conquer; America sends its soldiers out to liberate. Rome demanded tribute from other nations; America sends aid and emergency relief around the world. Rome enslaved nations; America rebuilds nations.

If the federal budget is a “moral document,” what does it say about America? It suggests to me that America may be the most moral nation on earth! Name one other country that has spent $15 billion fighting AIDS in Africa. Name one other country that has provided more disaster relief, that has built more schools and water treatment plants, that has supplied more food aid around the world, that has sent more doctors, teachers, and technical advisers to developing nations.

Even America’s military budget—much of which is being spent to rebuild Iraq and Afghanistan—reflects the basic compassion and unselfishness of the American people. Clearly, America hardly deserves any scolding from the Sojourners soapbox.

Did Jesus ever lecture the Roman Empire about its budget priorities? In Matthew 8, when the Roman centurion approached Jesus in Capernaum, our Lord could have said, “How dare you, a Roman warmonger, come to Me asking favors? Change your priorities! Tell your bosses in Rome to stop buying chariots and start funding welfare programs!” But Jesus didn’t lecture the centurion. He said, “I tell you the truth, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith!”

In Matthew 22, when the Pharisees asked if it was right to pay taxes to Caesar, the Lord could have thundered against Caesar’s misplaced budget priorities. Instead, He said, “Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.”

In John 18, Jesus stood before Pontius Pilate, the Roman prefect, a friend of Caesar. Why didn’t He give Pilate an earful about the injustice of Roman rule? If ever there was a time for Jesus to “speak truth to power” and become the “social justice Messiah,” that was it!

But Jesus didn’t preach the social gospel to Pontius Pilate. Oh, he spoke truth to power, all right. He delivered a profound message to Pontius Pilate—and to you and me: “My kingdom is not of this world.”

Now, I’m not saying that Christians are never called to confront their government. God bless Dietrich Bonhoeffer and the Confessing Church for standing against Nazi genocide. But that’s not the situation here.

And I’m not saying there isn’t a social and compassionate dimension to the Christian gospel. There certainly is! Jesus had great compassion for the poor.

He preached in Nazareth, “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor.” He sent word to John the Baptist, “The deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor.” Jesus presented the obligation to help the poor as an individual responsibility, a Kingdom responsibility—not the duty of the secular government.

Both the religious and secular Left in America seem to want government to replace the church in ministering to the poor and needy. One of Barack Obama’s first proposals as president was a plan to slash tax deductions for charitable donations by high-income taxpayers. President Obama reasoned that a tax deduction “shouldn’t be a determining factor as to whether you’re giving that hundred dollars to the homeless shelter.” Maybe so—but since private charities do so much good for the poor, why eliminate incentives for charitable giving? Could it be that liberals see private charities as competing with the big government welfare state?

In Romans 13, Paul tells us that we pay our taxes and support the government so that we will have a just, orderly society in which law-abiding citizens are protected from wrongdoers. But the responsibility for mercy and compassion belongs to the church—not the government.

What would Jesus cut? When He stood before the Roman Empire, He didn’t suggest cuts. He received cuts. His flesh was cut by Roman nails and a Roman spear. He was bruised for our transgressions, and with His cuts we are healed. That’s the gospel of Jesus Christ.

PART 2

…ministering to the poor and the needy among us is the work of Christian individuals and the church, not the secular government. Jesus said, “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. . . .” Today’s Religious Left wants to change that to, “He has anointed the federal government to preach good news to the poor.”

The Christian gospel is a message of salvation, not a message of income redistribution and raising our neighbor’s taxes. Jesus said that the way to serve the poor is by giving generously of our own resources. “But when you give a banquet,” He said in Luke 14, “invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”

The Religious Left is very generous—with other people’s money. In fact, I believe the founder of the Religious Left was none other than Judas Iscariot. When Mary, the sister of Lazarus, anointed Jesus with costly perfume just days before the crucifixion, Judas lectured her and said, “Why wasn’t this perfume sold and the money given to the poor?”

Notice that Judas put on a show of caring for the poor—even though the money was Mary’s, not his! The motives of Judas, John 12:6 tells us, were corrupt and self-centered—and Jesus responded with a stinging rebuke.

At least one of the Lord’s disciples was a “social action Christian” in the Sojourners mold: Simon Zelotes (Simon the Zealot). Just as Sojourners president Jim Wallis was once president of the Michigan State chapter of the militant Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), Simon Zelotes was a young political radical who attached himself to Jesus because he thought Jesus would lead a revolt against the Roman Empire.

Simon saw Jesus as a political Messiah who would topple the powerful while lifting up the poor and oppressed. But Jesus was not a political Messiah. He didn’t attack the Roman Empire. He did battle with the Evil Empire of Satan himself.

Jesus didn’t tell the Roman government what its budget priorities should be. Why? Because His agenda was much larger than the agenda of Simon Zelotes or the Religious Left. His eyes were fixed on eternity. He said, “My kingdom is not of this world.”

The Religious Left has missed the meaning of that statement. Yes, there is a place for Christian social action—but that place is in a personal lifestyle of generosity and compassion to the poor. Jesus didn’t tell the rich young ruler to become a political activist and affect public policy. He said, “Go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

It’s true, there’s poverty in America, and some of the poor can’t lift themselves out of poverty without help. Some are physically or socially disadvantaged. Some are down on their luck. They need and deserve Christian compassion and the good news of the gospel.

But a huge number of people receiving government assistance are substance abusers, welfare cheats, or chronically lazy. Doesn’t the Bible tell us, “If a man will not work, he shall not eat” (2 Thessalonians 3:10)? Why must the “makers” of society support the “takers” of society? That’s not compassion. That’s theft. Wouldn’t it be more compassionate to encourage the takers to develop self-respect by becoming productive citizens?

Would Jesus endorse government policies that encourage and enable addiction, indolence, and welfare fraud? Certainly not. The Religious Left should read His parables, especially the Parable of the Talents (Matthew 25:14-30), the Parable of the Vineyards (Matthew 20:1-16), and the Parable of the Tenants (Matthew 21:33-46). In those parables, Jesus blesses hard work, personal responsibility and the freedom to achieve.

Government programs can’t separate the truly needy from the welfare cheats—but private Christian charities can. Private charities are far more effective than government at meeting needs, changing lives, eliminating fraud and waste, and dispensing compassion. Our stance as Christians should be pro-compassion, not pro-bureaucracy.

The place for compassionate Christian social action is in the church, and in the lives of individual believers. When the church becomes a political pressure group, telling the government, “Confiscate more wealth from those who earned it and give it to those who have not,” then the church has formed an unholy union with the kingdoms of this world.

Income redistribution is not Christianity. It’s Marxism—and mixing the two only pollutes the Gospel and betrays the Great Commission.

Homo-Mafia Shuts Down Christian-Owned Bakery – Plans to Disrupt Olympics

Gay-MafiaBakery

Homosexual Activists armed with mob-tactics and using the government and the courts are targeting Christian businesses while setting sights to disrupt the Russian Olympics

Before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both old and young, from every quarter, surrounded the house. And they called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to your house tonight? Bring them out to us that we may have sex with them”.  So Lot went out to them through the doorway, shut the door behind him, and said, “Please, my brethren, do not do such wickedness! See now, I have two daughters who are virgins; please, let me bring them out to you, and you may do to them as you wish; only do nothing to these men (my guests), since this is the reason they have come under the shadow of my roof.”
And they said, “Stand back!” Then they said, “[he is an outsider], and he keeps acting as a judge; now we will deal worse with you than with them.” So they pressed hard against the man Lot, and came near to break down the door. – Genesis 19:4-9
I am often baffled at the American Christian proclivity to be so willing to attack other Christians over differences in doctrine – but steadfastly REFUSE to stand together against societal sin and abominations being forced upon the people by a hedonistic mob and an immoral government and court system.  So often I read of lukewarm Christianity folding and surrendering to sin and wickedness in order to be perceived as ‘tolerant’ in an increasingly evil society.
Christians have bought a lie fed to them by demons and the unGodly that they are not to resist or fight or go to war against evil, but rather turn the other cheek, and indeed – even lie back and enjoy the rape.  Often, the threat of the loss of revenue or income will cause many churches and Christian institutions to ‘modify’ and/or soften their doctrinal stances in order to capitulate to the hedonistic mob’s demands.  Like Lot, Christians will offer their own children to the ravenous mob demanding to rape and pillage their places of business and worship if that threatens the money train or the courts and government are brought to bear against them.
If Christians read their bible, they would know that the nature of the abomination of homosexuality is one that will force itself upon those who resist it.  Like all sin, homosexuality is NEVER content with the demand for ‘equality’ – because equality is not the agenda nor the goal.  The agenda of such sin is to FORCE ITSELF upon everyone, to make their wickedness acceptable and preferable.  As we read in Genesis, there is no satisfying such a mob of wickedness.  They surrounded Lot’s house and were on the verge of breaking down his door to force themselves upon him and his guests.  God refers to homosexuality as an abomination for a reason; it’s nature is abhorrent to the natural order of creation.  It defies the intent and purpose of sex.  It stands in direct opposition to God and required The Lord to visit vaporized mass extermination upon two cities that were filled with it.

Therefore, it is refreshing and uplifting to read of Christians who WILL stand on their faith in America – even if it means they lose their business and income.  The Kleins may be one the early statistics of a government and societal push to persecute and punish Christians who refuse to accept a vile new morality being forced upon us all.  They deserve our prayers, and perhaps God will open doors for their talents to be utilized elsewhere.

But what I would like to point out – is that the nature of the insidious homosexual agenda is something we can read about in the bible.  The homo mob will surround your house – your business – and your church to demand that you capitulate to their demands.  And their agenda will not be satisfied with whatever we might sacrifice to appease them.  They will push against our doors and attempt to force themselves upon us – using the courts, the government, extortion or their fists.

Just one bit of evidence for this factual assertion is this group on Facebook that wants to FORCE Homosexual marriage upon normal/straight men and women, under the auspices of ‘understanding’.

  • Open GroupOpen Group

  • We are here to support the idea of “forced” gay marriage for the general public. It would be semi-randomized and applied to hetero-sexuals as well as homo-sexuals as a way of promoting understanding of the issues involved.

    Please, we are all one nation. Let’s try to understand each other.

So the Homosexual mafia will attempt to shut down Christian businesses and churches, force themselves upon heterosexual people and go berserk against the Russians by attempting to disrupt the Sochi Olympics.  One might ask why don’t they go attempt to shut down Muslim businesses or protest in Saudi Arabia or other Islamic theocracy that outlaws homosexuality?

It’s because they hate the God of the bible, and because they know Muslims will stand and fight back against any affronts to their faith, even to the point of mass killing.

The Gay Mafia understand that most Christians will not stand and fight against any affront to their faith.  They bought the Satanic lies that taught them not to judge good from evil, sin from righteousness.  So instead they too call evil good, and good, evil – in the hopes that the Homosexual Mafia will not break down their doors.

Witness the ‘Crocodile will eat us last’ syndrome.

 

Christian bakery closes after LGBT threats, protests

660-Sweet-Cakes-by-Melissa.jpg

A family-owned Christian bakery, under investigation for refusing to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple, has been forced to close its doors after a vicious boycott by militant homosexual activists.

Sweet Cakes By Melissa posted a message on its Facebook page alerting customers that their Gresham, Ore. retail store would be shut down after months of harassment from pro-gay marriage forces.

“Better is a poor man who walks in integrity than a rich man who is crooked in his ways,” read a posting from Proverbs on the bakery’s Facebook page.

“It’s a sad day for Christian business owners and it’s a sad day for the First Amendment,” owner Aaron Klein told me. “The LGBT attacks are the reason we are shutting down the shop. They have killed our business through mob tactics.”

Last January, Aaron and Melissa Klein made national headlines when they refused to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple.

Klein tells me he has nothing against homosexuals — but because of their religious faith, the family simply cannot take part in gay wedding events.

“I believe marriage is between a man and a woman,” he said. “I don’t want to help somebody celebrate a commitment to a lifetime of sin.”

The lesbian couple filed a discrimination with the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries and told their story to local newspapers and television statements.

Within days, militant homosexuals groups launched protests and boycotts. Klein told me he received messages threatening to kill his family. They hoped his children would die.

The LGBT protestors then turned on other wedding vendors around the community. They threatened to boycott any florists, wedding planners or other vendors that did business with Sweet Cakes By Melissa.

“That tipped the scales,” Klein said. “The LGBT activists inundated them with phone calls and threatened them. They would tell our vendors, ‘If you don’t stop doing business with Sweet Cakes By Melissa, we will shut you down.’”

To make matters worse, the Oregon’s Bureau of Labor and Industries announced last month they had launched a formal discrimination investigation against the Christian family.

Commissioner Brad Avakian told The Oregonian that he was committed to a fair and thorough investigation to determine whether the bakery discriminated against the lesbians.

“Everybody is entitled to their own beliefs, but that doesn’t mean that folks have the right to discriminate,” he told the newspaper. “The goal is to rehabilitate. For those who do violate the law, we want them to learn from that experience and have a good, successful business in Oregon.”

In other words, Christians who live and work in Oregon must follow man’s law instead of God’s law. But in a show of benevolence, the state is willing to rehabilitate and reeducate Christian business owners like the Kleins.

Klein said the closing of their retail store was a small price to pay for standing up for their religious beliefs.

“As a man of faith, I am in good spirits,” he said. “I’m happy to be serving the Lord and standing up for what’s right.”

Klein said what’s happened to Sweet Cakes By Melissa should be a warning to other Christians across the nation.

“This is a fight that’s been coming for a while,” he said. “Be prepared to take a stand. Hopefully, the church will wake up and understand that we are under attack right now.”

Just last month, New Mexico’s Supreme Court ruled that two Christian photographers who declined to photograph a same-sex union violated the state’s Human Rights Act. One justice said the photographers were “compelled by law to compromise the very religious beliefs that inspire their lives.”

Denver baker Jack Phillips is facing possible jail time for refusing to bake a cake for a gay wedding.

The Colorado Attorney General’s office filed a formal complaint against Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cake Shop. A hearing before the state’s civil rights commission is set for later this month.

In Indianapolis, a family-owned cookie shop faced a discrimination investigation after they refused to make rainbow cookies for National Coming Out Day.

A T-shirt company in Lexington, Ky. found itself at the center of a Human Rights Commission investigation after they refused to make T-shirts for a local gay rights organization.

Klein said it’s becoming clear that Christians do not have the “right to believe what we believe.”

In other words, gay rights trump religious rights.

Aaron and Melissa Klein tell me they will continue to bake wedding cakes from their home. He’s already taken a full-time job to pay the bills and feed their five children.

Mrs. Klein told television station KPTV her philosophy remains unchanged by recent events.

“The Bible tells us to flee from sin,” she said. “I don’t think making a cake for it helps. I guess in my mind I thought we lived in a lot nicer of a world where everybody tolerated everybody.”

The plight of the Klein family exposes the true nature of the left. Those who preach tolerance and diversity are the least tolerant and the least diverse of all.

And then there’s the plan to disrupt the Olympics by the same agenda.

‘GAY’ PLAN TO DISRUPT OLYMPICS REVEALED

An organization that previously documented how state officials in Massachusetts gave children graphic instructions in bizarre homosexual sex actsand has documented the advance of alternative sexual lifestyles now is reporting on a plan by “gay” activists to disrupt the coming Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

…Russian officials have banned the public promotion of homosexuality and Burke, co-founder of the You Can Play Project, which purports to work to “end homophobia in sports,” confirmed that’s a lot going on with planning.

The 2014 Winter Games will be in Sochi Feb. 7-23, and facing homosexual activists will be a decision by Russia’s parliament that bans the promotion of “non-traditional sexual relations” to minors.

“The Russian government has made it clear that the ban also covers participants and attendees of the 2014 Olympics,” MassResistance said in its report.

…We are talking about utilizing diplomatic channels to get things into the country.”

“There’s a lot going on behind the scenes that will frustrate people because it won’t be made public until you see an athlete on a medal stand or at closing ceremonies . . .”

Deceiving The Elect: Archbishop Says He’d Rather Go To Hell Than Worship A “Homophobic God”.

HomoMass

Retired Archbishop says he refuses to go to a “Homophobic heaven” and declared the fight against gay prejudice is akin to the anti-apartheid struggle.  

No point for me to comment other than what the Apostle Paul told the Roman congregation.  This applies to so-called Christians discarding their faith for the Religion of Political Wickedness.

I imagine given his statement, that people like Tutu will be the ones that wail and gnash their teeth at Christ the Messiah and His Father at the Judgment.

In the meantime, recall how the wicked men of Sodom surrounded Lot’s house and attempted to sexually force themselves upon the angels that visited Lot and his family.  Not even offering his daughters to the mob would sate them.  Such is the vileness of this abomination that has ensnared so many and will destroy the entirety of them.

For even though they (once) knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man …

Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie…

For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them. – Romans 1: 21-31

Retired archbishop Desmond Tutu would rather go to hell than worship a homophobic God

“I would refuse to go to a homophobic heaven. No, I would say sorry, I mean I would much rather go to the other place,” the retired archbishop said at the launch of a United Nations gay equality campaign in Cape Town yesterday.

“I would not worship a God who is homophobic and that is how deeply I feel about this,” he said, condemning the use of religious justification for anti-gay prejudice.

Launched by the UN Human Rights Office, the public education campaign “Free and Equal” aims to raise awareness of anti-gay violence and discrimination.

Tutu, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, compared the project to the fight South Africans waged to end the former white racist minority rule, a struggle in which he played a pivotal role.

“I am as passionate about this campaign as I ever was about apartheid. For me, it is at the same level,” the 81-year-old said.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said same-sex relationships are illegal in more than a third of countries around the world and punishable by death in five.

Even in countries where gay rights are upheld challenges remain, she said, noting that South Africa has “some of the worst cases of homophobic violence” despite having some of the world’s best legal protections.
