"We've embraced a hyphenated understanding of ourselves as opposed to a view that sees us as one people." And "Divide people up into constituencies, and then the way you gain power is by making promises and representing particular constituencies. â€¦ So even when gains are made, you have to downplay those and go looking for other things that are problems." Sadly, it is not only the two constituencies mentioned in the article that has used these concepts rooted and grounded in cultural Marxism, to advance a cause that is not God's. Whenever anything is promoted by a lack of love and a perversion of that which God has either commended or condemned in Scripture in order to advance a constituent cause the process begins again and as Mr. Baucham concludes "However, if all you are doing is using the language of the culture and the idea of people as constituencies, then you end up right where we are, and it is hard to stop that train,"
Bottom line is that it is not sin having dark pigmentation. However, sodomy is sin.
Who has bewitched them? And there are those willfully ignorant of what God has shown them; doing all that is within their power to suppress the truth. This applies to both the wicked and those who claim to be righteous.

The Lord, the Lord indeed, reigns.
Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, OH LORD, and thou are exalted as head above all. Both riches and honor come of thee, and thou reagents over; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great and to give strength unto all ( 1 Chronicles 29:11,12).

If they won't get it from the Church, they'll give it to goodwill or a food bank: it's not about BEING right, it's about money.
Are you then inferring that the Lord will not provide for his own?
If we loved as we are instructed, then the Church would increase in such; in numbers, and in effectiveness.

Time to pray Psalm 115:1,2 that God will turn us again unto Him for His name's sake. We seek His glory. Also Jeremiah 9:19-25 call for tears. Let our tears spring up to the throne of God. Let them fill the clouds. Let the clouds burst open and flood the earth; ridding it of its filth.
The "noise of war in the camp" is a summons to our Lord to descend. He will make them drink the dregs of the cup of his wrath.
Cry aloud! Cry aloud! Cry aloud until our tears stream into the hearts of those taken captive by Satan's schemes.
I am so grieved. I am so grieved. May God have mercy on us.
Honor Your worthy name, Lord. Not unto us do we pray, but for your honor and glory.
