This past weekend I read of Barney Frank a member of the House of Representatives marrying the man he has been sleeping with for many years. Now this activity is legal in the state of Massachusetts. But I fear for our nation, when our president decides that he will come out in favor of sexual immorality. That’s right, I said it and I believe it. Sexual immorality is a sin, God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because of sexual immorality, he has sent many notices about this in His word.
Now, I don’t want you to think that this is a worse sin than any other sin. If you steal, murder, or whatever else you might decide is OK for you to do, the penalty is still the same. Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death.” Sin begets, gives birth to your eternal death divorced from the presence of God. Sin – some people don’t believe there is any such thing, but for those of us who have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, we know that God frowns upon our sinfulness, and has made it abundantly clear from the beginning of the world, that sin brings us into a state of enmity with God and leads to death and the lake of fire.
I read about Mr. Frank and his “lover” getting married, which led me to reflect upon the history of the world in which we live. One of the things that caused nations to fall apart, to disintegrate, was sexual immorality. Homosexuality, bestiality and other crimes against God caused these nations to become hardened to any kind of sin whatsoever. Women would have a child and decide to leave it on a hill side to be eaten by wild animals, men would misuse boys, even their own children in sexual ways. When they got to the point of wanting only their own pleasure and nothing else mattered then the governments would begin to fall apart, they would no longer be interested in maintaining an army to protect their land, but only to protect themselves. They became so decadent that they allowed their military might to become stagnant, and finally the visigoths and other peoples who the Romans felt were nothing began to sack Rome. The same thing had happened to the Greeks and to others in history.
So, what is going to come of all this in our own nation? We are already beginning to see what will happen, the military is being cut, by politicians who want the money for “social programs” instead of protecting our borders, or fighting our enemies. This nation once was a place where God was seen and recognized, where immorality of any kind was not acceptable. Now however, we find that even the courts are willing to allow pornographers to ply their trade openly. It used to be that magazines like Penthouse, Playboy and others were hidden behind a counter, now they are out in the open where our children can look at them. We teach our kids that immorality is OK that sin is fun, because we watch filth on our TV’s and listen to it on our radio’s.
One other thing I read about over the weekend was a woman who put beer in her son’s sippy cup. This was a very young child, still using a sippy cup. He excuse, he was grabbing for the beer pitcher, so she gave him some to make him happy. HELLO? The child is no longer in her custody, but what is going on in our society that a mother is that callous?
We are riding on a train to hell and unless we turn this thing around, our nation will be no more. It has already been changed, we no longer support marriage as between a man and a woman, it is now OK in many parts of the country for 2 men or two women to marry each other. What’s next, a man and his horse, or a woman and her dog? Maybe a threesome can also get married? Our nation, once cared about these things but it seems we no longer do, and that says to me that we are on our way to the Fundamental Change that President Obama promised in 2008. It frightens me to think that we are going to throw God out of our nation, for the nation that does not know God is a nation on its way to destruction.
BTW there is hope, it only we will wake up and listen to God’s word. The verse in Romans 6:23 says “The wages of sin is death, but, the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Wake up Church, Wake up America. There are two destinations in eternity, one is hell, the other Heaven. Will you decide for hell? Or will you stand up for Christ, for morality and for Heaven? Your choice.
