GOING TO CALIFORNIA?

Yesterday in California people flocked to have their homosexual relationships codified as marriage. There were celebrations state wide that would make Sodom and Gomorrah envious. The state ruling has an added caveat that Massachusetts, the other state perverted enough to allow homosexual marriage, does not have, and that is no residency requirement. Which means people will be once again be heading west. Not to open up new frontiers necessarily, but rather to have a marriage that celebrates the homosexual relationship. A UCLA study issued last week estimated that half of California's more than 100,000 same-sex couples will get married over the next three years, and 68,000 out-of-state couples will travel here to exchange vows.

The real problem with this is the lethargy among Gods people. It is sad that we are even moving beyond lethargy into acceptance as some who profess Christ would take the view that we should simply live and let live. Is that what we should do? Is that the most glorifying to God? Who wrote in His Word that homosexuality is a perversion, an abomination, unnatural, the result of God pouring His wrath out on man for worshipping the creation instead of the Creator. I believe God would call us to stand against this homosexual indoctrination that has hit our country. I believe that God would call us to stand for Him and for the children to come who will without doubt be taught at a very early age to accept homosexuality, and even consider it for themselves.

The answer to the sin of homosexuality is the answer for every sin, Jesus Christ. People who live in the sin of homosexuality need the power of Christ to forgive their sin and give them freedom and victory. That is our message, and this is our fight. The question as always is, are you willing to engage in the battle for the glory of God?
