Okay… so I am paraphrasing my title. I was reading 2 Corinthians chapter 6 and I am compelled by the Holy Spirit to write to you exactly what Paul wrote to the people in Corinth in 56 A.D.
Chapter 6: 3-18
We live in such a way that not one will stumble because of us, and no one will find fault with our ministry. In everything we do, we show that we are true ministers of God. We patiently endure troubles and hardships and calamities of every kind. We have been beaten been put in prison, faced angry mobs, worked to exhaustion, endured sleepless nights, and gone without food. We prove ourselves by our purity, our understanding, our patience, our kindness, by the Holy Spirit within us, and by our sincere love. We faithfully preach the truth. God’s power is working in us. We use the weapons of righteousness in the right hand for attack and the left hand for defense. We serve God whether people honor us or despise us, whether they slander us or praise us. We are honest, but they call us impostors. We are ignored, even thought we are well known. We live close to death, but we are still alive. We have been beaten, but we have not been killed. Our hearts ache, but we always have joy. We are poor, but we give spiritual riches to others. We own nothing, and yet we have everything.
Oh, dear Fulton County (Corinthian) friends! I have spoken honestly with you, and my heart is open to you. There is no lack of love on my part, but you have withheld your love from us. I am asking you to respond as if you were my own children. Open your hearts to us! Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness? What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever? And what union can there be between God’s temple and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God said:
“I will live in them and walk among them.
I will be their God, and they will be my people.
Therefore, come out from among unbelievers, and separate yourselves from them, says the Lord
Don’t touch their filthy things, and I will welcome you.
And I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”
This letter is going directly to those of you who support the Democratic platform. I dare say you are making a pact with the Devil himself. You are siding with darkness. Hillary wants to change our constitution and the way we think. Especially with abortion and homosexuality.
Ask yourself these questions?
1.Am I living in such a way that no one will stumble because of me? Do your friends know that abortion and homosexuality is against God’s design? Do they know that homosexuality is an abomination to God?
- Leviticus 18:22, “You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.”1
- Leviticus 20:13, “If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltness is upon them.”
- 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, “Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”
- Romans 1:26-28, “For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. 28 And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper.”
Homosexuality is clearly condemned in the Bible. It undermines God’s created order where He made Adam and Eve, a man and a woman, to carry out his command to fill and subdue the earth (Genesis 1:28). Homosexuality cannot fulfill that mandate. Also, homosexuality undermines the basic family unit of husband and wife which is the God-ordained means of procreation. Again, homosexuality cannot do that. And, believe it or not, homosexuality is also dangerous to society. (See Is homosexuality dangerous? for the statistics)
Homosexuality has a heavy judgment administered by God Himself upon those who commit it and support it.
Romans 1:26-27, “For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.”
As a result of being “given over”, they can no longer see the error of what they are doing. They will not seek forgiveness, and they will not repent. They will then die in their sins and face God’s righteous condemnation. But, their rebellion against God does not stop there. Those who are judged by God this way, also promote their sin and condemn others who don’t approve of their behavior.
Romans 1:32, “…and, although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.”
So, in their “hearty approval” of homosexuality, they encourage others to accept their practice, and so their sin and rebellion against God spread. This means they will reject Christ’s redemptive work on the cross. Without Jesus, they will have no forgiveness. Without forgiveness, they will have no salvation. Without salvation, there is only damnation in eternalhell. We Christians don’t want this for anyone. We want them to experience the great love of God through the person and work of Christ who died for our sins (1 Peter 2:24).
2. Are you letting other’s think abortion is okay?
God speaks very clearly in the Bible on the value of unborn children. God’s Word says that He personally made each one of us, and has a plan for each life: Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart. —Jeremiah 1:5 Even before I was born, God had chosen me to be His. —Galatians 1:15 For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb… Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be. —Psalm 139:13, 16 Your hands shaped me and made me… Did You not clothe me with skin and flesh and knit me together with bones and sinews? You gave me life. —Job 10:8-12 This is what the Lord says—He who made you, who formed you in the womb —Isaiah 44:2 Did not He who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same One form us both within our mothers? —Job 31:15 Because man is made in God’s own image (Genesis 1:27), each life is of great value to God: Children are a gift from God. —Psalm 127:3 He even calls our children His own: You took your sons and daughters whom you bore to Me and sacrificed them… You slaughtered My children. —Ezekiel 16:20,21 The Bible says of our Creator, In His hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of every human being —Job 12:10 God, the giver of life, commands us not to take the life of an innocent person: Do not shed innocent blood. —Jeremiah 7:6 Cursed is the man who accepts a bribe to kill an innocent person —Deuteronomy 27:25 You shall not murder. —Exodus 20:13 Taking the life of the unborn is clearly murder— He didn’t kill me in the womb, with my mother as my grave. —Jeremiah 20:17 —and God vowed to punish those who… ripped open the women with child —Amos 1:13 The unborn child was granted equal protection in the law; if he lost his life, the one who caused his death must lose his own life: If men who are fighting hit a pregnant woman, and she gives birth prematurely, but there is no serious injury, the offender must be fined …if there is serious injury, you are to take life for life. —Exodus 21:22,23 Life is a gift created by God, and is not to be taken away by abortion. God is “pro-choice,” but He tells us clearly the only acceptable choice to make: I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live —Deuteronomy 30:19
I have been heavily criticized for my out spoken words about what the Bible says about both of these things. Especially homosexuality. I have been called a bigot, a homophobic, a narrow minded b*tch. But it’s okay. The Lord has trained me well and it really doesn’t affect me. I have been called a lot worse, it’s just this time I find complete joy in knowing my mind and heart is completely aligned with God’s plans.
So am I telling you who you should vote for? Yes I am. If you vote for the Democratic party you will be not only allowing others to stumble but you will also be changing the thinking of what is right and wrong. The Devil knows that if he controls our thinking than he controls us and our gay friends. And he finds great delight in that. He knows that many Christians will also fall into this false thinking if the Democrats are elected. I dare say you will be responsible for many to stumble and not ever find their way to the Lord. And I say shame on you!!
Abortion is wrong! No matter what has happened in a women’s life God has created that little baby. No matter if it’s an 11 year old who was sexually raped by a father. God knows both of these children. He will take care of them how HE sees fit. His plans are always for good. He knew about them even before they were born.
When we are born again , the Holy Spirit begins to work His new creation in us, and there will come a time when there is nothing remaining of the old life. Our old gloomy outlook disappears, as does our old attitude towards things, and “all things are of God (2 Corinthians 5:18) How are we going to get a life that has no lust, no self-interest, and is not sensitive to the ridicule of others? How are we have the type of love that is kind…is not provoked, and thinks no evil?” By having only simple, perfect trust in God-such a trust that we no longer want God’s blessings, but only want God Himself!! (Oswald Chambers)
I’m praying you will vote for the Republican Party this elections cycle. Because we can disagree on all the other issues, but these two issues are VERY clear! God wants you to vote for life and against homosexual marriage.
Also thought the elephant was a symbolic of talking about the “Big White Elephant in the room.” 🙂
