Faithful Ministry John - You and I have no way of knowing what involvement Marty may have with those social concerns you mention, but one thing we know: If God hates homosexuality as much as His Word indicates, does not love for Him demand that we, as His people speak against it, and warn those that doom their own souls? - I Cor.6:9-10
Thank God for men who are courageous enough to stand up against the false and satanic doctrine of islam. God's Word clearly tells us, â€śWho is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father alsoâ€ť (I John 2:22-23).
As for all those so-called "Christian" leaders who deny this most basic of all Scripture doctrine that defines us as Christians (followers of Christ), God's Word warned us about them as well: â€śBut there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth notâ€ť (II Peter 2:1-3).
If you don't believe that the way of Truth is evil spoken of these days, you haven't heard how our political candidates who are Christians are attacked on every side by the "noose" media...
This is sad, but it shouldn't be so surprising in these last days. God's Word tells us: â€śBeloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.â€ť
A gentleman who attends my church is a Gideon and his testimony is that they are being turned away from more and more public schools and prevented from giving out God's Word to a lost and dying generation. That's why people who truly care about their kids are taking them out of the public schools and either sending them to Christian schools or turning to home schooling. If "Thou shalt not kill," etc. isn't part of our children's education, it's no wonder the schools are unsafe war zones where some demon possessed maniac can show up with a gun and slaughter the kids like sheep. We have affirmed their "right" to lie, cheat, steal, kill, commit adultery, rape, etc., by taking away the Ten Commandments!
I agree with the previous comment, although it's a sad commentary on the state of our nation that such an amendment is now needed.
Also, we need to thank God for this judge who took a very courageous stand for what's right! And Judge Mosman needs our prayers as I know the devil is really going to be throwing all his fiery darts at him.
