THE HIGHJACKING OF TRUTH AND SOUND DOCTRINE

Our American culture is attempting to make the narrow way wide and the exclusive way inclusive. Many cannot seem to understand that you can’t live in sin and go to heaven. You can’t live an immoral lifestyle  and go to heaven. You can’t live for yourself and do whatever your flesh and feelings dictate and go to heaven. You can’t believe what you want to believe and still go to heaven. You can’t respect everyone’s religion and systems of belief and go to heaven. There is only one way, and it is through Jesus Christ. It is the narrow way.

 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12)

The unrighteous cannot inherit the kingdom of God.

“Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Cor. 6:9-10).

Many cannot seem to reconcile these scriptures, especially the gay community, many of whom hurled nasty insults and vile comments at me this past weekend because my article offended them Gay Activism: The Death Rattle  of a Nation.

Twitter and Facebook also threatened to close down my accounts as other media outlets got wind of my Charisma article and misquoted me. Here’s one.

I TRIED TO TELL THEM THEIR HOUSE WAS BURNING

All I did was to frantically flag them down at the bridge that was out, but they sailed past me at 100 mph flipping their middle finger at me. I warned them that their house is on fire while they screamed hate-filled curses at me from their bedroom window accusing me of bigotry and hatred.

 

Image may contain: possible text that says 'Hell would be empty if everyone knew five minutes before death what they know five minutes after death'

These are accurate images of what is really happening. They accuse Bible believing Christians of hatred, and called me names I cannot repeat here.

They did the same to our Master.

“It is enough for a disciple that he be like his teacher, and a servant like his master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more will they call those of his household” (Matt. 10:25)!

It’s strange that their most common cry was that I was hateful, but they hated me for testifying that their lifestyle and works were evil.

“The world cannot hate you, but it hates Me because I testify of it that its works are evil” (John 7:7).

You see, they only like their version of hate, and this spirit has its tentacles all  over America. Americans celebrate the gay lifestyle. The world doesn’t hate this spirit. Heck, they and much of the church don’t even recognize it as a spirit. America and the world only hate true Christians and those who defy this spirit and sin.

With every vile comment they demand tolerance while actually being very intolerant of anyone who disagrees with them. They only like their version of tolerance.

Isn’t that something how that works?

Jesus moved in tough love and never compromised the truth. That’s why the most religious tried to kill Him.

“After these things Jesus walked in Galilee; for He did not want to walk in Judea, because the Jews sought to kill Him” (John 7:1).

Imagine that. Religion tried to kill a perfectly sinless and loving man. Religion sought to kill the Son of God. It’s always been this way.

Religion joins itself to homosexuality and hides there. They divorce Christianity from the Bible. This is present day America.

THERE’S SOMETHING DIFFERENT ABOUT HOMOSEXUALITY

Homosexuality is unnatural. It’s unclean. The Bible calls it abominable. And it’s very stubborn. Why? Because it’s coming from a futility, and foolish hearts that have been darkened, and a will that is bent on this lifestyle. It suppresses the truth in righteousness even though God has shown them it is wrong (Rom. 1:18-19). Here it is:

“Although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things” (Rom. 1:21-23).

Sexual perversion is a choice, not an identity as some argued with me over the weekend. One man in particular told me he tried everything to change, but gave up, and convinced himself he was born gay. Such a deception. I’m afraid God has given him over to a reprobate mind, and if that’s the case, sadly, there is hardly any hope for him.

Reprobate minds void of judgment are multiplying. Many occupy high seats in government, school systems, the courts, and media. They are the devil’s agents sent to intimidate the Church and pollute and destroy the land. It’s now a principality in our nation.

No, homosexuality is not the only sin that will damn your soul and pollute our land, but do not fool yourself, Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s bold and unashamed stance for his and his partner’s gayness was a direct statement from this principality to the inhabitants of our nation, to you and me, to our children, and to our grandchildren. It was a Goliath moment mocking the true Church, our faith, and our family values.

This principality shouts at us, “I’ve come for you and your children. We are advancing and you can’t stop us, or we’ll get violent, mock your faith, and run you over! Conform to our agenda or else!”

Aggressive gay activism is just one area they are doing it in, but do not be desensitized, because it is a big one.

PRESIDENT TRUMP NEEDS TO BE REBUKED FOR AGREEING WITH BUTTIGIEG’S LIFESTYLE

President Trump stepped into dangerous ground recently by acknowledging and promoting the sinful abominable marriage of Mayor Pete and Chasten his partner. I was very grieved and disappointed by it. Someone in his inner circle of counsel needs to call him out on it. He could lose any remaining favor he might have with God right now, because he publicly positioned himself  against the Word of God, against the true church of Jesus Christ, and he aided the leftist liberals to undermine the future of our nation.

I agree with my friend Cary Gordon, pastor of Cornerstone church in Sioux City, Iowa:

“I have no desire to be an enemy of Donald Trump. God does not desire to be an enemy of Donald Trump, either, but President Trump better be careful he does not make himself the enemy of God and the Bible with his sinful opinions repeatedly spoken into TV cameras in front of American children!

“The Christian ministers who surround the President are waaaaay tooooooo quiet! We need REAL men of God to shake-off the sinful pragmatism and REBUKE the President when he earns it. He has earned it.”

“Republican election results be damned!!! You want to defeat Buttgeig and company? Then you go tell the President to stop praising the sins of Buttgeig, then!”

TRUTH AND SOUND DOCTRINE IS BEING HIGHJACKED

Some readers think I have an obsession with the sin of homosexuality, and that I should write about other sins as well, and not  push the issue. As I stated, it’s because it’s a principality that rules our nation. We have no choice but to push the envelope now and enter into faithful disobedience to the laws of the land that contradicts the Word of God. We should’ve been doing this long ago with abortion, with prayer being removed from our schools, and with a host of other antichrist issues.

It’s time to rock the boat.

The world, the culture, the media, and Hollywood are highjacking truth and sound doctrine. They are controlling the narrative, or the way of presenting a situation or series of events that reflects and promotes their particular antichrist agenda or set of values. They have  become the biggest educator in America. Every show, every movie, every song on radio has become in itself a voice or narrative of propaganda.

The most subtle trick of the devil is to get you to laugh at sin.

They’ve made too many believe that sound doctrine is the new religious hate speech. Even in churches. This has intimidated pastors and caused them to cower down from anything that is controversial. Pastor, this is not a minor issue. It’s one of the main strongholds in our nation.

Friends, the wicked are not hiding in their closet anymore, but it seems too many of the righteous are. Now that they’ve come out of their closet we need to be so bold and unapologetically tell them to come out of their grave. Preach the full gospel and the whole counsel of God. Preach against sin. Command the people to repent. Pastors and parents, you better educate the young ones and fortify the older ones. This is an hour when you must know what you believe and in Whom you have believed and committed your soul to.

Satan is not hiding his cards any more, but he’s playing for keeps. In case you’ve been living under a rock here’s what they’ve been doing to our children: Public School LGBT Programs

Here’s what they are doing to our pastors: California Pastor Loses Job Over Calling Homosexuality a Sin

Here’s what some churches are teaching and allowing: The Ordaining of a Lesbian Bishop

Goliath is mocking the people of God and too many of us are intimidated and afraid. You better put your armor on and get to the battle front. If what they’ve already done and continue to do does not fill you with righteous indignation, I’m sorry, but your faith is not worth a nickel to me.

We are not wrestling with flesh and blood. Our righteous indignation must not be aimed at human beings but this principality. Homosexuality is carving America down. It’s intimidating too many in the Church. It’s gotten its filthy hands on every aspect of society. It’s time to make a statement to this Goliath.

“Who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God” (1 Sam. 17:26)?

The days of living in Christian ease are over. The showdown is here. Choose you this day whom you will serve.

If you’ve ever wondered what you’d do during the civil rights movement, slavery, or the holocaust you are doing it right now. The leftist narrative has intensified and they are highjacking truth and peddling lies at the quickest pace in our nation’s history. It’s up to the remnant people of God and the burning ones of God to get in the face of America right now, ignite the Blood-bought Church, advance the kingdom of God, and take America back.

Do you want to survive or thrive in this decade? You must take an uncompromised stand for truth and righteousness. Please get my new book, The Tumultuous 2020s and Beyond, to discover all that’s at stake in this decade. We must be bold, fearless, and strong in the Lord. 

 

AMERICA’S DECADENCE AND THE AWFUL FATE OF PERVERTED MEN

I can’t seem to get the image of the Democratic presidential candidate Pete “Petunia” Buttigieg introducing and kissing his husband Chasten (talk about a name for an alien entity appearing as an angel of light) out of my mind. Just as Obama’s lighting up of the White House in the rainbow gay pride colors on that fateful evening in June of 2015 when same sex marriage was legislated, this image is another signpost in the death march of a nation. According to Scripture, these sort of defiant acts always signal the beginning of the end of a society. The shock effect on this sort of heinous thing continues to be reduced as millions of people keep being numbed and desensitized to it.

Let me stir you with the fear of God using an abundance of Scripture by reminding you that God’s mind and perspective has not changed toward this abomination.

A QUEER THING HAPPENED: THE STORY OF PERVERTED MEN

The story begins in Gibeah when an old man extends hospitality to an unnamed Levite, his concubine, and his servant and lodges them for the night. In the middle of the night, however, a strange thing happens.

“As they were enjoying themselves, suddenly certain men of the city, perverted men, surrounded the house and beat on the door. They spoke to the master of the house, the old man, saying, ‘while they were enjoying themselves, the men of the city, who were wicked men, surrounded the house and pounded on the door.’ They said to the old man, the master of the house, ‘’Bring out the man who came to your house, so we can have relations with him’” (Jud. 19:22).

The expression “perverted men” literally means “sons of Belial,” and it refers to a group of vile men who sought to satisfy their homosexual desires on the unnamed Levite visitor. The men of Sodom also made a similar request to abuse Lot’s visitors in a sadistic, homosexual manner (Gen. 19:5). These accounts reveal the decadence of both of these periods of time in Israel’s history. Homosexuality is the only reason the Scriptures give for Sodom’s destruction. Jude 7, which is referenced later in this article, confirms this also.

Ceremonial laws were specifically for Israel to obey, but moral laws are universal and apply to the entire human race. The Hebrew word for “perverted” is qadesh, which means one practicing sodomy and prostitution in religious rituals.

One of the universal moral laws of Israel states:

“There must never be a cult prostitute among the daughters of Israel nor a cult prostitute among the sons of Israel” (Deut. 23:17).

Isn’t that the height of deception—to mix sodomy and prostitution with religion?

Under God’s Law Israel was commanded to remove this type of evil and wickedness from the land. This is a type and shadow of what is now operative in this Church dispensation. Paul commanded the Corinthian church to “put away from yourselves the evil person” (1 Cor. 5:13).

We need to understand that the practices of the Old Testament do not carry over into the New Testament, but the principles do. For example, we don’t stone violators and transgressors of the Law in the same way they did in the Old Testament, but we are to apply the same principle in disciplining the church member (1 Cor. 5). Note how much harsher the penalty was under the Law.

“The tribes of Israel sent men throughout the whole tribe of Benjamin, saying, ‘What is this evil that has been committed among you? Now hand over the wicked men in Gibeah, so that we can kill them and purge the evil from Israel.’ Yet the Benjamites were not willing to listen to their fellow children of Israel” (Judges 20:12-13).

After an ensuing battle with the tribe of Benjamin, who refused to comply with God’s Law, godly order was eventually restored as the land was indeed cleansed of perversion. But the cycle of sin and perversion resurfaced again in Israel during the time of the kings.

THE BIBLE CALLS HOMOSEXUALS AND SODOMITES PERVERTED PERSONS

“And there were also perverted persons in the land. They did according to all the abominations of the nations which the Lord had cast out before the children of Israel” (1 Kin. 14:24).

The abominations of the nations were infiltrating into Israel and influencing them in the same way the sin and immorality of the world has infiltrated much of the Church today.

David’s son, Asa, was a godly king and he did right in the sight of the Lord and cleansed the land once more.

“And he banished the perverted persons from the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made” (1 Kin. 15:12).

Jehoshaphat followed in his father Asa’s footsteps and did the same during his reign.

“And the rest of the perverted persons, who remained in the days of his father Asa, he banished from the land” (1 Kin. 22:46).

Then in a later period King Josiah did the same.

“Then he tore down the ritual booths of the perverted persons that were in the house of the Lord, where the women wove hangings for the wooden image” (2 Kin. 23:7).

Do you see a pattern here? Israel, just as the church is today, were God’s chosen people, and they were to be separate from the world and the sin, immorality, and perversion that is in the world.

We are no longer under the Law as they were, but the Law is still good for the lawless and insubordinate (1 Tim. 1:8-10), and accounts like these are given to us as examples for our admonition (1 Cor. 10:1-11). As I said, moral laws are universal laws that apply to everyone.

THESE ARE WARNINGS TO THE CHURCH NOT TO ENTERTAIN THESE SPIRITS

These and other examples serve as a warning to the church today to stand true and hold fast to the ordinances of God so that in the end they would not suffer the same vengeance of eternal fire. We are not to let the culture of our nation dictate the direction of the Church. We are not to entertain spirits of perversion. If we do, we can actually lose our standing with God.

“But I want to remind you, though you once knew this, that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day; as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire” (Jude 1:5-7).

In this Scripture “strange flesh” is speaking of homosexuality. God has not changed. His attitude toward sin and this sort of perversion has not changed.

The manifestation of the wrath of God in eternal fire against sin is seen in the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. The Scriptures do not balk at the use of very plain language to describe the revolting sexual depravity as a prime justification for their annihilation.

The burning commentary on this record is seen in Romans 1, with Paul’s indictment of “men with men committing what is shameful” so rightly described as unnatural. By such deeds men dishonor their own bodies and become lower than the beasts of the field.

Sodomy is one of the most degraded sexual offenses, and it is appalling how our culture has embraced it and celebrated it, and continues to promote it. It’s not just the abominable sin of homosexuality but it’s gay activism or the pushing and promotion of this lifestyle that is the death rattle of any nation, as Romans 1 says.

“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;  who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them” (v. 28, 32).

Paul’s explanation of the gospel always included the wrath of God on those who will not repent. All unrighteousness and especially the perversion of sodomy usually leads men to suppress the truth and hold false views of God and the Bible because they know that the truth would require them to repent. The terrible truth is that as people continue to reject God, He gives them up to increasingly immoral and self-destructive activities (Rom. 1:24, 26, 28). How fearful of a state that is.

Look at our nation, people! We are so far down this road of decadence. The apostle Paul is clearly showing us that homosexuality is a final order of rebellion against God. It is a sure sign that a society is in the last stages of decadence. My fear is that our children and grandchildren will pay for the negligence of their irresponsible parents, humanistic teachers, and corrupt politicians. Too many are asleep and have abandoned their post.

Arise, oh mighty remnant of God and sound the trumpet to this evil generation.

I cover more on this topic in my new book, The Tumultuous 2020s And Beyond.

A SOBER REMINDER: APPROVING OF HOMOSEXUALITY IS DESERVING OF DEATH

In the name of progressivism we now have a male presidential candidate who has a husband whom he publicly introduces and even kisses without shame, while millions of Americans applaud and approve. And perhaps worse yet is that the shock effect has been so reduced that the rest of us are numb and desensitized to this most shameful and abominable behavior. And that’s all it is is behavior.

Have you seen this old quote from Gore Vidal?: “Actually, there is no such thing as a homosexual person, any more than there is such a thing as a heterosexual person. The words are adjectives describing sexual acts, not people…” (From Gore Vidal: Sexually Speaking). The fact is that the word “homosexual” wasn’t invented until 1892, when a German book on sexual perversions was translated into English (Psychopathia Sexualis was the German book).

God created male and female with sexual union between the two being first for procreation; anything outside that is merely behavior.

In 1 Corinthians 6:9 and 1 Timothy 1:10, some translations unfortunately use the word “homosexual,” when actually there is no Greek word for that (the Bible was canonized way before 1892). The word that is used in the aforementioned references is “arsenokoites”, and it just describes a male-to-male sexual union. Behavior. The Bible mentions no other gender besides male and female. There is no gender called “homosexual” or “transgender” either. That is a behavior.

This fact has been lost on millions of people across America and now the world. Even Christians have subtly allowed homosexual behavior to be elevated to the status of gender in their minds. The LGBTQ movement seeks to elevate their behavior to gender status. But one of their best-known members, Gore Vidal, had it right.

To paraphrase again, sex is a behavior, not a gender. We see the leftists’ efforts in the courts and in society to change that. Moreover, blindly and ignorantly, denominations have altered what the Bible says and yielded to this perversion. It’s a lie that Western culture in particular has swallowed. But the truth is, there are men, and there are women. The rest is behavior.

Churches and clergy who have swallowed the lie of homosexual behavior being elevated to gender status are trophies of hell and Satan’s prized possession.

The American pulpit is to blame. Preachers who know better are to blame. The constant compromising of preachers to avoid controversy is creating much damage, not only to the world, which is looking for a clear sound from preachers, but also to believers who have little discernment or are growing tired of ambiguity. For example, one very influential and popular minister who has millions of followers was asked if homosexuality was wrong, and his general response was that his views were evolving. Evolving? That’s like saying the Bible is evolving. How pathetic of an answer.

In fact, when those who practice such things that are deserving of death also approve of others who practice them (v. 32) — it is one of God’s final signs of His wrath on a society.

When millions of Americans applaud Pete Buttigieg and his “husband” it is the death rattle of a nation. When the never-Trump-ers and Trump-haters counteract with judgment and accusations of adultery against our own president, in response to Buttigieg’s abominable lifestyle, they are grasping for straws in a last gasp of air of a drowning argument.

My friend Dr. Michael Brown has it right in the recent article he wrote (I Will Say What the Political Leaders Cannot Not Say About Pete Buttigieg) when he revealed that repentance is the difference between president Trump and Buttigieg. Here’s what Trump said about his sins:

“I’ve never said I’m a perfect person, nor pretended to be someone that I’m not. I’ve said and done things I regret, and the words released today on this more than a decade-old video are one of them. Anyone who knows me knows these words don’t reflect who I am. I said it, I was wrong, and I apologize. I pledge to be a better man tomorrow and will never, ever let you down.”

Brown continues:

“In stark contrast, Mayor Pete has talked about how his homosexual relationship to his “husband” Chasten has brought him closer to God. He has kissed his partner at public rallies. He is pushing his homosexuality, not apologizing for it.”

Would you please read that last phrase again very slowly and very carefully? He said his homosexual relationship to his “husband” has brought him closer to God. What!? This sounds so eerily close to the woman with the spirit of divination who followed the apostle Paul and his team, saying, “These men are the servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to us the way of salvation” (Acts 16:17).

In the above verse, when Satan used a slave girl possessed with a spirit of divination to identify herself and her fortune telling with Paul’s team, it was his master plan to defile the church of God with other mixtures. He has done this successfully throughout the ages. It’s always been his lethal stroke. “If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em” is the devil’s mode of operation. He divorces Christianity from the Bible. This is 21st century America (The Tumultuous 2020s and Beyond). This is Pete Buttigieg’s Satanic philosophy. Yes, the god he claims to be closer to is Satan. 

Throughout history and in America today, Christianity has become a myriad of traditions, Satanic philosophies, doctrines of demons, witchcraft, and New Age gobbledygook. Unfortunately, some of this mixture has also infiltrated into the Pentecostal/Charismatic camp.

Buttigieg and others of his kind will do everything in his power to normalize homosexual relationships even more in the eyes of America. They are products of what the Bible calls a “debased mind” or a mind void of judgment (Rom. 1:24, 26, 28) that God Himself has given them over to.

Buttigieg will also do his best to marginalize those who are convinced that these relationships are contrary to the will of God. But once again, the Scriptures are clear:

“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting…who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them” (Rom. 1:28, 32).

A pastor friend of mine just told me that every pastor and every church in America needs to get my newest book, The Tumultuous 2020s and Beyond, before the November election. We need pastors and people who believe this message is a nation-saving and Church-saving word to promote it. I wrote it out of a deep burden for the Church and the nation. Some of the above excerpts are quotes from the book. 

DON’T DIVIDE SPIRITUALITY FROM POLITICS

Can you not see and discern that politicians are given power to make decisions that affect us personally and determine our future?

They will influence not only the way our government runs and the state of our economy and our money but also our public institutions of learning and Church houses. Most importantly, politicians will legislate laws that will exalt either righteousness or evil in our nation for many years to come. That’s not political; that’s spiritual!

Somebody will take your hard-earned money and use it for their un-Godly agenda. Someone is already spending it and getting richer. Many who will run for office do not care about our national debt; they will help create another Great Depression. They want to give away free American citizenship, free American healthcare, and free education to everyone who can break through our borders. And they will make sure you pay for it. How can that not stir you to action?

Worst of all, politicians will enact laws that will use your tax money to indoctrinate your children with homosexuality, transgenderism, socialism, false gods, and false religion. How can you continue to be indifferent?

If politicians and their political parties, the media, Hollywood, and academia can convince people on these issues, then they can convince them on anything else, including the rejection of the gospel. This is the reason many youth abandon Jesus Christ and the Church after they leave home and go to college.

Did you know, based on the politics of Twitter, Facebook, Google, and other liberal-run organizations and companies, that it’s “hate speech” if you say that Islam is not a peaceful religion or that homosexuality is a sin or that transgenderism is wrong? But they are perfectly fine with banning Chick-Fil-A at airports or removing a monument cross or a nativity scene at a public place or just harassing Christians. Can you not see that voting for politicians with strong core moral values and truth and righteousness affects you personally, your family, children, and grandchildren? But the change is gradual and so subtle, like the proverbial frog in boiling water. What one generation tolerates, the next generation celebrates. We are seeing it all around us.

Politics and politicians continually make decisions that affect these issues. If you love God and you love people, you will be passionately interested in what values and principles are being legislated by our governmental leaders. This is politics, my friends. How can you say God does not care about politics?

As I examine things in the political realm since Donald Trump has become president, here is something I see. In recent attempts from the Democrat Party to unseat President Trump and run him out of office, I have noticed the dominant influence of the dirtiest politics I’ve ever witnessed in my lifetime and how the FBI, the attorney general, and FISA court judges are all falling under the sway of this extreme avarice for political power.

We have sunk to new levels of evil and the slimiest kind of wickedness and corruption when you add media power to magnify and propagate political power in order to destroy a sitting president. We have moved further and further away from the position of a party that offers to provide the best leadership to truly benefit the people into a political party that is willing to overthrow its own freedom to be in power. God help us!

We need to be praying and looking to the Lord for the best leadership for this country and stop thinking we can do this without Him. This is an early reminder to get engaged in the political process and let the Lord guide you in your vote in 2020 and beyond. Look carefully at your candidate and make sure that what they stand for politically and personally is what best represents your values and the direction you want for the country.

This is not about domesticating or politicizing Jesus into our perceived “cause.” I am well aware that His kingdom is not of this world, and it is not an either-or polarity. It is a third way. But He loves righteousness and hates iniquity, and we should live and vote the same way.

As a preacher stated recently, don’t fall into the trap of making an artificial divide between spirituality and politics. The devil is intensely spiritual, and he loves to infiltrate and possess media, entertainment, institutions of learning, and politics to promote his evil cause and make the broad road to destruction even broader for our nation’s people.

AMERICA HAS BEEN DYING A SLOW DEATH BUT SHE’S TOO YOUNG TO DIE

This article was written by a pastor friend of mine, Bill Staten and edited by me. Bill is the pastor of Faith Christian Center in Cairo, Georgia. I rejoice in the voice of some bold pastors who refuse to remain silent about the state of our nation. They are educating their people and leading strong. My prayer is that more of them would arise and be unmuted in this hour.  

I have heard all my life about the poor frog that got boiled in water because he was too stupid to notice the heat rising in the pot. It made an impression on me and I’ve even used it in sermons and lessons taught to a number of congregations and students. My heart was shattered to find out the truth about this illustration.

The boiling frog is a fable describing a frog being slowly boiled alive. The premise is that if a frog is put suddenly into boiling water, it will jump out, but if the frog is put in tepid water which is then brought to a boil slowly, it will not perceive the danger and will be cooked to death.

The frog is the American Church.

The Church of America has been regarded as being asleep for a very long time. If not asleep, then certainly oblivious to what is happening around us. We see the nation changing right before our very eyes and go on as if nothing is happening. Though we say we don’t like the changes, very few of us have voiced our opinion to the government. While silence is “golden” it is also deadly. It’s time to wake up and realize we are in a spiritual war that will decide the fate of the nation and the Church.

Proclaim this among the nations: “Prepare for war! Wake up the mighty men, Let all the men of war draw near, Let them come up. Beat your plowshares into swords And your pruning hooks into spears; Let the weak say, ‘I am strong'” (Joel 3:9-10).

THE LGBTQ AGENDA

The nation is going through a cultural change and little has been done to stop it. I’m talking about the LGBTQ agenda. The Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender, and Queer culture have “come out of the closet” with an undeniable force with the motive to have America accept this lifestyle. Sex education all the way back to kindergarten is shaping the minds of our children that this lifestyle is acceptable, and that Christianity is bigoted against this culture.

It seems as if this agenda is something that sprang up overnight or at least within the last decade. But it was introduced to America at least over 60 years ago. We, as God-fearing Americans, didn’t say anything at the beginning and now it seems it’s too late (The frog beginning to boil). The biggest force behind this movement is the world of entertainment. They disguised this in movies, cartoons, soap operas, sit-coms and we laughed and thought it was cute entertainment.

The earliest I could find, even though I know there were earlier moments in films, is the movie dated 1959, “Some Like It Hot” staring Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis where these two throughout the movie were dressed as women. It was hilarious. What entertainment! A wonderful movie to sit and enjoy. Or was it? The subliminal message was that it would be alright for men to dress like women as long as it was good clean fun. Since it wasn’t stopped and labeled as immoral by the Church of America it permitted the gay cause to continue its hidden motive of softening the Christian to accept this and other lifestyles.

In the 60’s Archie Bunker had an openly gay friend in Sammy Davis Jr. The fact that his character was gay wasn’t immediately known. It did surface when Archie wanted his picture taken with Davis to prove to his buddies that he wasn’t a racist. But Sammy got the last laugh when just as the camera was snapped, he turned his head and kissed Archie. Archie couldn’t believe that he had been kissed by another man. And America laughed at such a sight.

In the 70’s Tom Hanks, in order to find a place to stay, dressed as a woman in “Bosom Buddies” in a popular sit-com. Again, this hilarious situation goes without adversity from the church and the heat under the frog in a pot turned up a little more.

The following prime time TV programs all had episodes with a gay character in the storyline. Many of which went un-noticed and subsequently allowed by the viewers as entertainment. See how many of these programs you remember watching and probably never noticed the episode(s) that featured a gay character in the story:

Marcus Welby MD; Police Woman; Streets of San Francisco; Mary Tyler Moore; Sanford and Son; Columbo; Soap; M.A.S.H.; Maude; Police Story; Barney Miller; The Doctors, Bob Newhart; The Jefferson’s; Kojak; LA Law; Picket Fences; Ellen Degeneres; Friends; Will and Grace; Downton Abbey; Glee; The Simpsons; and this is just a few.

Some are very open about the gay characters while others were silent and hidden well so that it wasn’t as noticeable. It’s getting worse each and every season of new programs on major networks as well as cable networks (The Frog is certainly boiling now).

How could this happen? How could a “Christian nation” allow this culture to overtake us? Easy. Nothing was ever said. Hollywood was never challenged. The Bible was never dominant enough in our homes to question this lifestyle. So now Christians believe the LGBTQ movement’s lie that they seek only Christian love and acceptance. But the truth is that the LGBTQ movement seeks to bury Christianity by bullying us into silence and extinction.

Now the lifestyle culture created by the LGBTQ community is in our face and having their say in government and in churches as well. It seems as if we cannot say anything about this community. We are expected to change our gospel and accept them as the new normal. This very letter would be regarded as a hate message, but it is directed to the church and not their agenda.

SOCIALISM

Could this happen again in another form of lifestyle? Yes, it can, and yes it is! There is a strong movement today to change this nation to be a socialist state. Socialism is slowly but surely being forced upon us. The president has vowed that this will not happen to America, but what about when he is not the president? The next generation of leadership has socialism as a target for this nation. How can this happen? They have an agenda and it has been published openly.

It was set in motion decades ago, but they needed a leader to implement subtle changes. A recent president, Barrack Obama, was the person to enable these subtle changes to get a foothold in America. The next one expected to be president, Hillary Clinton, was going to take it much, much further to the point of no return. God intervened and another president was elected unexpectantly. This president has given the Church of America a chance to wake up. We need the mighty men and women to arise.

Here is the list of agendas that must be accomplished in order to move to a socialist/fascist state.

This is how to create a socialist state by Saul Alinsky. There must be eight levels of control to create a socialist nation.

1. Healthcare: control healthcare and you control the people.
2. Poverty: increase the poverty level as high as possible. Poor people become dependent upon the government for their provision.
3. Debt: increase the national debt to an unstainable level. This will be to raise the taxes higher and make more people live in poverty.
4. Gun Control: remove the ability for people to defend themselves from the governments control.
5. Welfare: take control of every aspect of their lives. Control food consumption, housing costs, and income.
6. Education: take control of what children are taught and only teach them to follow these standards.
7. Religion: remove religious belief in God from the government and schools. Control what can be preached and taught in a public assembly. Control the assembly as well.
8. Class Warfare: divide the people into two groups, the wealthy and the poor. This causes discontent and will be easier to tax the wealthy with the support of the poor. Siding one against the other.

Many have already made their platform known that this is what they are aiming for. This will produce a drastic change to all of America and Americans. We can sit back and let this happen as well. All we must do is remain silent.

HOW TO STOP THE ATTACK ON OUR FREEDOMS

This is the coming agenda. This is the view of the United States in the future. There is something we can do to stop this attack against freedom as we know it.

First, pray. But prayer cannot be the only thing we do.

Second, vote. Our first voice against such changes can be at the ballot box. Again, that’s not enough.

Third be vocal. Be vocal in city, county, and state issues by letting legislators know how you feel.

Fourth lead. Run for office. Be a leader that stands for the right and against the wrong.

Realize that all the signs, banners, flags, crowds, protests, and marches are people that believe in their cause. The LGBTQ community believe so much in their cause that they are willing to go to jail. They are unashamed to show PDA (public display of affection) by holding hands, hugging, kissing, and acts of intimacy openly. They are covered by their community to protect them and bail them out if necessary. Shouldn’t we Christians be unashamed about our cause? Shouldn’t we pray, lift up holy hands, sing and worship with our voices on the street and show that we are serious about our Lord’s love as well?

It’s a spiritual war that must be fought and taken down by spiritual warriors, but it’s also a warfare that must be dealt with naturally by voicing our objections to this culture.

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Eph. 6:12).

The spirit that drives them is from the darkest region of evil. It is spiritual wickedness that controls the very heart and soul of the LBGTQ agenda. We have a greater force in us. He is the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY.

“You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4).

We need to rise to another level of boldness. The enemy is bold, but we need to be bolder. They are unashamed, but we need to be more unashamed. Will you accept this challenge to be bold as a lion and take a righteous stand for the LORD?

I honestly believe that our nation needs the Christian to rise up in a power that the world cannot deny. Instead of talking about how great our God is, let’s be a demonstration of how His awesome love can change the hearts and ways of man. As one writer said, “America, you’re too young to die.”
