My husband and I became truly incensed while watching this evening’s news because we are sick and tired of having “gay” stories shoved down our throats (both on television and at the movies). It seems the ONLY way to keep from encountering the endless, relentless “gay agenda” is to throw out our televisions and computers, and never see another movie.
HOW is that right? Why is it that, seemingly all the sudden, nearly all movies and TV shows feel compelled to mention the homosexual lifestyle in one way or another. Never in my life have I ever introduced myself as a heterosexual. “Hello, I’m author Carmen Welker, a heterosexual college and business college graduate, veteran of the United States Army….”
But that is exactly what all gays seem to be doing today. Somehow and for some reason, their sexual preference must come into play. How ridiculous, how utterly LUDICROUS is that?
Ever since our illustrious former LIBERAL and Bible-illiterate President, Obama, made “gay marriages” legal, the media and Hollywood has been behaving as if this is a perfectly “normal” thing, and they feel compelled to shove it down our throats on a continuing basis, not ever allowing us to “come up for air!”
Examples of what I’m talking about:
On this evening's newscast, we saw two stories wherein they mentioned LGBTQ as if it were a perfectly normal thing!
The first mention of it was story about Sara Cunningham, a 54-year-old mother and ordained minister with a gay son, who said she "wrestled with my faith as if I had to choose between my faith and my son...and I reexamined everything I believed." She then proudly went on to boast that the Holy Spirit told her, “What’s important to your son should also be important to me.”
Well, I’m sorry, but – according to the BIBLE - the Holy Spirit of God would NEVER tell someone that it’s okay for ANYONE to live in sin … especially a sin that YHWH cites as “an abomination!”
YES, by all means, we are to love our children unconditionally, but that does NOT mean we must condone their sins. As a “pastor” Cunningham should know that! (On the other hand, she is clearly a lukewarm Christian who isn’t familiar with the WHOLE of Scripture and somehow thinks she has a right to twist it to suit her purposes. She doesn’t realize she’s treading on very thin ice, because God isn’t in the habit of forgiving those who commit deliberate, ongoing sins. Jesus didn’t die so that we could CONTINUE to sin….)
Leviticus 18:22 - You are not to go to bed with a man as with a woman; it is an abomination. (CJB)
Leviticus 20:13 If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them. (CJB)
That's a pretty strong word - "abomination." Unfortunately, today people like to pretend God has somehow changed His mind, and that - not only is it "okay to be gay", but God has even condoned homosexual marriage ... never mind that there is not one scripture to support that idea!
Let’s just lay it all on the line concerning what the BIBLE SAYS about homosexuality, shall we?
Genesis 1:27 So God created humankind in his own image; in the image of God he created him: male and female he created them. 28 God blessed them: God said to them, "Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and subdue it..." (CJB)
(In case people haven’t noticed, homosexuals cannot procreate or “be fruitful and multiply” – and therefore, those who engage in “gay sex” are denying YHWH’s “image” to proliferate.)
Deuteronomy 22:5 "A woman is not to wear men's clothing, and a man is not to put on women's clothing, for whoever does these things is detestable to ADONAI your God. (CJB)
1 Corinthians 6:9. Or don't you know, that the unrighteous will not inherit the Kingdom of Elohim? Make no mistake! Neither sexual sinners, nor idol-worshippers, nor adulterers, nor the corrupt, nor men who lay down with other men, 10. Nor the oppressors, nor thieves, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, will inherit the Kingdom of Elohim. (AENT)
1 Thessalonians 4:3 For this is the will of God, your sanctification; that is, that you abstain from sexual immorality.... (CJB)
Romans 1: 22 Claiming to be wise, they have become fools! 23 In fact, they have exchanged the glory of the immortal God for mere images, like a mortal human being, or like birds, animals or reptiles! 24 This is why God has given them up to the vileness of their hearts' lusts, to the shameful misuse of each other's bodies. 25 They have exchanged the truth of God for falsehood, by worshiping and serving created things, rather than the Creator - praised be he for ever. Amen. 26 This is why God has given them up to degrading passions; so that their women exchange natural sexual relations for unnatural; 27 and likewise the men, giving up natural relations with the opposite sex, burn with passion for one another, men committing shameful acts with other men and receiving in their own persons the penalty appropriate to their perversion.
28 In other words, since they have not considered God worth knowing, God has given them up to worthless ways of thinking; so that they do improper things. 29 They are filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and vice; stuffed with jealousy, murder, quarreling, dishonesty and ill-will; they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God; they are insolent, arrogant and boastful; they plan evil schemes; they disobey their parents; 31 they are brainless, faithless, heartless and ruthless. 32 They know well enough God's righteous decree that people who do such things deserve to die; yet not only do they keep doing them, but they applaud others who do the same. (CJB)
Moving on, the second mention of LGBTQ was by a female interviewer who was chatting with the Smithsonian Institution's new secretary, Lonnie Bunch, the founding director of the Smithsonian's popular National Museum of African American history and culture in Washington.
Becoming all excited of the fact that the Smithsonian now features an African American history wing, the interviewer made a comment to the effect of, "Oh wow! Perhaps in the future we'll also be able to see a wing for the LGBTQ community!"
The bottom line is: Our sex lives are no one else’s business! It’s none of my business if someone else is attracted to the same sex and chooses to live outside of YHWH’s Will. HOWEVER, if someone wants to live a homosexual lifestyle, thus condemning themselves, what gives them the right to require us to accept it, thus forcing us to condemn OURSELVES?
Great post, Carmen!ReplyDelete
Thank you and your husband Carmen, our feelings exactly. We packed away our TV and vcr, and gave away all our movies and dvd's in 2012. We read headlines on the net and thats bad enough. We're only interested if it covers major world events. We havnt missed it at all. We spend the time discussing and researching Scripture. Now there is where you can find some really good stories.ReplyDelete
Blessings to you both.
