Score a point for Satan.
How do I know that Daniel's 70th Week (the Tribulation and Great Tribulation) is close at hand? All I have to do is turn on the news today and hear about a Christian church succumbing to what's politically correct rather than boldly proclaiming that they will continue to stand for what's right, and moral, and God's holy law.
The Lutheran church, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) to be exact, is lost. How else do you explain how leaders of the nation's largest Lutheran church voted Friday to allow sexually active gays and lesbians in committed relationships to serve as clergy? In doing so, they have totally ignored the Scriptures as the guidelines for Christian behavior in regard to homosexuality.
For those who think I'm just contributing to the same song-and-dance and that "it's just like you Christians to always bash homosexuals" I would simply respond by saying that this is as absurd as any Christian church voting to say that they believe it's ok for people (specifically their members) to abort babies, to have sex before marriage, to commit adultery, to murder others, to steal from others, to lie and cheat, to view pornography, to physically abuse others, etc.
The bottom line is that sin is sin. God doesn't make a distinction between each one, or place them on different levels like we always do thinking that one is worse than another. He tells us plainly what sin is, and tells us plainly what the result of sin is. He tells us plainly and in no uncertain terms what's wrong and what's right. There is no room for compromise. Political correctness does not exist in His world because it's something Satan has succeeded in getting us to create down here to make ourselves feel better about sin and make it palatable on a mass scale. Again, plain and simple.
Luke 21:28 -- "And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws near."
Keep looking up because I'd say we're well beyond the "begin to come to pass" stage and more likely in the "about to give birth any moment" phase following those birth pains we've heard so much about over the years.
It's just so sad that the church is promoting a lifestyle that is not only a sin, but one which is also illegal in 48 states.
What We're Praying/Talking About
Our faith in action, or our small contribution in trying to apply what we're taught in Hebrews 5-6 and James 2:17-26 for the benefit of our dear brothers and sisters within the Body of Christ...
