Judas and Peter show us there are four options:
Like the religious leaders, you can focus all your energies on the things you don’t like about other people. Instead of dealing with their own issues, they obsessed over getting Jesus.
You can try to make up for your mistakes, like Judas giving back the money he had received. The problem is, of course, that you can’t un-ring a bell, and you can’t undo your sins.
You can give in to despair, stew in your guilt, and let it eat you alive, as Judas did.
Or you can repent, as Peter did. You can bring your sin before God for mercy and put things in place that will help you change the way you live.
It is morbidly ironic that nearly all the people posting the red equal signs for the faux “equality” of “same-sex marriage” are pro-abortion. They fight aggressively to turn society upside down for 0.1% of the country (3% of people are lesbian/gay but less than 3% of those want to get married), but they ignore the equal protection for unborn and unwanted human beings.
‘Gay Marriage’ and Religious Freedom Are Not Compatible – please read it all.
As long as there are still Christians who actually follow Christ and uphold his word, a vast amount of people around the world — never mind Islam — will never ever see gay marriage as anything other than a legal encroachment of God’s intent.
So those Christians must be silenced. The left exerted a great deal of energy to convince everyone that the gay lifestyle is an alternative form of normal. It then has exerted a great deal of energy convincing people that because the gay lifestyle is just another variation of normal, gay marriage must be normalized.
Meanwhile, those Christians are out there saying it is not normal and are refusing to accept it as normal because of silly God dared to say marriage is a union between a man and woman.
Any Christian who refuses to recognize that man wants to upend God’s order will have to be driven from the national conversation. They will be labeled bigots and ultimately criminals.
Already we have seen florists, bakers, and photographers suffer because they have refused to go along with the cultural shift toward gay marriage. There will be more.
Once the world decides that real marriage is something other than natural or Godly, those who would point it out must be silenced and, if not, punished. The state must be used to do this. Consequently, the libertarian pipe dream of getting government out of marriage can never ever be possible.
Within a year or two we will see Christian schools attacked for refusing to admit students whose parents are gay. We will see churches suffer the loss of their tax exempt status for refusing to hold gay weddings. We will see private businesses shut down because they refuse to treat as legitimate that which perverts God’s own established plan. In some places this is already happening.
Christians should, starting yesterday, work on a new front. While we should not stop the fight to preserve marriage, and we may be willing to compromise on civil unions, we must start fighting now for protections for religious objectors to gay marriage.
Richard Dawkins defends the moral goodness of infanticide and adultery – what charming and inconsistent sentiments from the “you can be good without God” leader.
ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, NPR and PBS Ignore Gosnell’s Abortion Horrors – This “doctor” severed the spinal cords of babies born alive, among other horrors, yet the media ignores it. If you only watch the mainstream media you are hopelessly misinformed.
People who grew up in Nazi Germany or under Communism know the score – Keep Your Guns; Buy More Guns
Kitty Werthmann, who lived under both Nazism and Soviet communism, offers excellent advice regarding firearms (see video at link)Registration is the first step in confiscation. After what happened in Europe last century, we won’t be able to say we didn’t know how it would play out.
Jim Carrey had a very un-funny bit about gun control. I’d be shocked if he wasn’t pro-abortion like every other pro-gun control Liberal.
‘Cold Dead Hand’ is abt u heartless moXXerf%XXkers unwilling 2 bend 4 the safety of our kids.Sorry if you’re offended
Yeah, because pro-aborts are all about safety for kids.
Hate speech from the CDC – CDC: risk of HIV 150 times greater for gay men than for heterosexual men. I wonder how long it will be until they stop publishing those statistics? Seems to me the loving thing would be to warn against such behaviors. As Ann Coulter asks, if smokers pay higher insurance premiums then why not gays?
Are the Polyamorists Next in Line for Marriage Equality? The LGBTQ people know not to move too fast. They could care less about the polyamorists but realize that the “slippery slope” isn’t a fallacy in this case. It is a cliff, not a slope. Validating “same-sex unions” isn’t tweaking the definition of marriage, it is saying that marriage is whatever someone wants to call it. The polyamorists and other perverts will use the same arguments that the gay lobby has.
There was an interesting article in the Washington Post last week about some polyamory activists in the Unitarian-Universalist Church. It seems the folks fighting for so-called “marriage equality” would prefer the polyamorists keep quiet. The last thing the same-sex marriage advocate want is for the real marriage activists to say, “I told you so.” The article cites a group called Unitarian-Universalist for Polyamory Awareness (UUPA). This group defines polyamory as the “practice of loving and relating intimately with more than one other person at a time.” Among the goals of the UUPA is to have their relationships blessed by a minister.
As Stan reminds us, the Hippocratic Oath was written 500 years before Jesus came to earth yet it strongly and clearly opposed abortion. Abortion is so clearly wrong that it took Satan 2,500 years to convince non-believers that it was, in a morbid irony, a “human right,” and only a few years more than that to convince much of the church. The fake part.
Also consider that at late as 1964 even Planned Parenthood was publicly anti-abortion:
Is it [birth control] an abortion?
Definitely not. An abortion kills the life of a baby after it has begun. It is dangerous to your life and health. It may make you sterile so that when you want a child you cannot have it. Birth control merely postpones the meaning of life.
There you have it! Straight from the experts at Planned Parenthood.
This picture makes a good point, but it is actually much worse than this. Gun training programs are truthful in sharing the real risks. Planned Parenthood deliberately gives a false sense of security and pretends that people will follow their ridiculous recommendations.
