I'm not a parent but I can see that it is becoming increasingly difficult to be one so long as the traditional parental authority of parents to train their children to be righteous is underminded by the increasing amount of meddeling by states and institutions.
Gil Rugh said or, wrote: There is much discussion in our society concerning the issue of homosexuality and whether it is an acceptable alternative lifestyle.
The concern for the Church is how those man-centered arguments and resulting persuasions become influential in the thinking of believers. The bottomline issue becomes what, or who, is the authority on the issue at hand.
For the believer it is the Bible. The Bible, being the Word of the unchanging God, remains the standard for living and knowing what is holy and right, and what is sinful and wrong.
The Bible clearly states, from Genesis to Revelation, that homosexuality is sin. It is but one sin among many...

Recently people in the UK decided to take a look at the Christian conservative political action here in the US as motivation to stop the immoral legislation slide. They have a lot of catching up to do. Hopefully it is not too late to reverse some of these outlandish reverse discriminatory actions against the religion that made Britain great. I say that it is against Christianity itself, because it is exactly that.

We do need to take action... In the US, it has never been easier to contact elected representatives. We can Google their web sites. We can find our Congressional representatives person by simply entering our zip + 4 at the following sites: http://www.house.gov/ http://www.senate.gov/
We can't do everything but we can do something. Ask God what you can do.
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7
We the Christian society don't gather and march to show our dissaproval where as the Homo's, abortionists, evolutionists all have parades and promote their evil ways. We rather hide here on a site that means nothing to them and laugh up their sleeve. This trend is world wide not only in the states. Here in South Africa we were told that from next year our children will be learning about Darwin. We need to organize marches to show that the masses are against these new laws being passed.
Each of us must contemplate our culpability in America's decline.
Our Forefathers understood the meaning of being in a "TRUE COVENANT" WITH GOD !!! -- And they understood that they were obligated to oblige GOD, that is, to modify **their plans**/**their perception of truth** as a due courtesy TO GOD ***IN REVERENTIAL FEAR OF HIM*** IN ACCORDANCE WITH HIS HIGHER MORAL GOOD !!!
Our Forefathers WERE FOCUSED AND They UNDERSTOOD HOW IMPORTANT IT WAS, **BEING IN RELATIONSHIP WITH THE FATHER**, "TO CONTINUE TO **ABIDE IN**, BE FOUND **PRESENT IN**, AND **HOLD UP** "THE ESTABLISHED COVENANT" THAT HAS BEEN APPOINTED TO man BY GOD" !!!
GOD'S "ESTABLISHED COVENANT" IS NO triffling matter !!!
Today men have reduced "TRUE COVENANT" to their own compartmentalized ReLiGiOuS doctrinal err ------- they have dissected and devalued GOD'S WORD to create "their own" feel-good messages of Profit, Gain, Comfort and Ease...
And you wonder why the **damnably unspeakable** has been elivated above THAT OF RIGHTEOUS MORALITY ??? -- Most men have withdrawn from their DUTY AS *SENTINELS*/*DEFENDERS* OF THAT WHICH IS TRUE !!!
Take Hold And Grasp Tightly The Wealth of That Which Is Offered IN GOD'S WORD -- "GET UNDERSTANDING" AND NEVER Let "IT" Go !!!
Christians who are against homosexual conduct are not prejudist, they simply have read and believe the Bible. Because the Bible speaks so strongly against homosexual conduct is the reason why homosexuals want quoting the Bible on the subject to be decleared hate speech. We can legislate speech but that won't change God's judgment. Is it kind to not warn homosexuals about God's coming judgment of individuals? God doesn't just pick on homosexuals, He forbids all sex outside of marriage. When I believed the Bible I surrendered my right to argue with it. It is not ambigious on the subject of sexual conduct, and of God's judgment.
This is sick, perverted and a sign of the evil times in which we live. If these corrupt bureaucrats and politicians continue to pervert and remove normal moral standards from society, we can only expect other aspects of everyday life to become vile and depraved. Clearly these politically correct bureaucrats are blind to the obvious and deluded. The church of course is so liberal in the main stream denominations that we can't expect much help from them either. Surely these dark days, with sadly, worse to come are unusual in all history. What can we imagine is the future for our children and grandchildren?
May God help us.
Gen 18:20 "And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous; 21 I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know."
"And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door. . .
