Men of God It's Time to Stand Against Homosexuality
Have you ever noticed that truth doesn't matter except in certain cases? Well, as I've been thinking about the issue of homosexuality, and as Janet Parshall rightly said not long ago on Larry King, "we're seeing the homosexualizing of America" I'm fascinated by the fact that the mainstream media refuses to print the truth about this issue. However, what's even more astounding to me is that most so called biblical churches refuse to address the issue as well - which is why many liberal and biblically illiterate churches have embraced the lie of the gay agenda.
Here's the truth about how Christians are having their rights taken away concerning their free speech on the issue of homosexuality. The most obvious thing, for those with eyes to see, is that just because a Christian disagrees with the practice of homosexuality that means they are "intolerant" or a "bigot" or a "hatemonger" or "filled with hate" or "fill in the blank with a derogatory name". It's not about the facts with people who disagree with those of us who know homosexuality is "unnatural", it's about name calling.
It's not about the facts, that would be objective, it's all about emotions and subjectivity. However, no where in the life of the Christian are we ever told to live our lives in a subjective manner. God made it very clear that we are to live by His rules, which are clear, concise and straightforward.
Here's the other thing though, the media refuses to report the intolerance of those who just can't stand those of us with a different opinion. Case in point, whenever there is a Love Won Out conference held which proclaims the truth that no one is born gay, or has to live as a gay person. Without exception there are vile protests, and in some cases vandalism at the church or place where that event it held. Just yesterday LifeSiteNews reported, and I also heard about this on one conservative talkshow, that these "tolerant" people vandalized the church that was hosting the Love Won Out Conference.
This is not an isolated incident as anyone knows who follows the hatred and intolerance of the left. The problem is that the liberals in the media who have been deceived by the lie of the gay agenda, don't like to report the facts. The even larger problem however, is how the Church deals with this issue.
A few years ago I attended a GLSEN (Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network) event and when I tried to inform those in the church I attended about what happened I had 3 people want to hear about it. I was given so many excuses not to come and hear what I had to say that I was literally shocked, and grieved. Because what these churchgoers don't want to look at is how this issue is impacting their lives.
Well, I have news for the sleeping church - the gay agenda is working slowly to take your rights away. And unless you wake up and start caring about this issue, you will no longer have any rights as a Christian to live what you say you believe to be true.
My friend Linda Harvey has written an excellent article called What's at stake for Christians in the war over homosexuality. This is must reading for every man who calls himself a pastor.
I've yet to hear any sermons about the homosexual agenda from any pulpit, in any church I've attended. And yet as Linda so rightly questions, why the silence? What are pastors and church leaders afraid of? And why is it that there are a few of us out here trying to warn the church about what is really going on? Are men in the church such cowards that they don't have the moral fortitude or spine to proclaim this truth?
Considering most of the people who are speaking out about this issue are women, with few exceptions, I'd take a look at that men of God. Now is the time to act and stand because if you don't now, you will not have the opportunity later. Men of God, now is your time to stand.
