The first issue has to do with the homosexual agenda. Many are already familiar with their legislative successes permitting invasion of the public schools with literature and demands for acceptance. This, however, is only a beginning. Over the next few months we can expect gigantic efforts towards two enactments that will drastically affect our current society. One will be the continuing attempt to pass laws permitting gay marriage. The other will be the attempt to pass laws that will greatly limit free speech. If this group has their way, we will see legislation passed that prohibits any critical appraisal of these alternate live styles even in church. This, carried to the extreme their desire would, in effect, make the Bible “hate speech.” And if you think this is hardly possible, look at Canada and several European countries where such laws are already in effect , and attempts to punish pastors have been made.
The second major issue is abortion. Despite the fact that the majority of Americans now oppose abortion, and especially partial birth abortion, proponents like planned parenthood and other abortion advocates insist on the right to snuff out the lives of children right up to the point of birth, and to provide that so-called “service” for teen age young women without their parents knowledge or consent.
The third issue concerns something about which many Christians are uninformed. It is radical multiculturalism. No one denies that other cultures have indeed enriched our own in countless ways. That is a given. Radical multiculturalism, however, is the proposition that all cultures are of equal value. This is “industrial strength” political correctness. Overall it is the prevailing view in most of Hollywood, much of Washington and a majority of the elitist university campuses, the source from which much of it comes. Proponents argue that this extends to all of life. This means that:
1) All religions are equal, including such things as Witchcraft and Satanism.
2) All sexuality (sexual expression) is equal. If adopted by enough people, this would eventually open the door to inter-generational sex (man-boy love organizations), polygamy, and all sorts of deviations including bestiality.
3) All life is equal. This would encourage such groups as the animal rights activists who feel that humans have no more rights than animals, and that vegetarianism is the ideal.
And in the non – judgmentalism of our post-modern world no one, they say, has the right to pass judgment on anyone else or their ideas. In some circles, Christians face a tremendous pressure to conform. Paul’s word in Romans 12:2 seems particularly appropriate here: “Be not conformed to this world but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind. . . .“
The fourth problem is the tragic disintegration of moral standards. This is still moving apace, despite the fact that the person most responsible for it all, Alfred Kinsey, has been thoroughly discredited.
In 1981, a scholar and researcher, Dr. Judith Reisman, reviewed his work and found it to be shockingly flawed. She exposed Kinsey as a sexual psychopath who apparently encouraged child abuse and even criminal acts in the process of what he called data gathering. Some of his information was gathered from male prostitutes and convicted criminals, and then applied to everyday people.. He is now seen, by informed persons, to be totally discredited, a man who perhaps should have been in jail rather than in a significant university chair. Yet, he is still honored and praised and his work celebrated in many centers of academia.
Probably the greatest enemy of traditional morality today is the televisionfilm industry. Writers, actors and producers are constantly “pushing the envelope,” They present an incessant barrage of immoral situations and an all too frequent mockery of pastors, churches, and traditionalists.
The fifth challenge to Christians today is the fact of Islam in our midst. This is a religion of which many of our leaders know very little. The same is true of many Christians. While some have insisted that it is a religion of peace, the facts suggest otherwise.
The Bible teaches that Christians must love and respect these newcomers to our land. We must continue to do that, but we should not be naive as to the ambitions of some of them nor ignorant of the weakness of their condemnation of terrorist acts by other Islamist.
A few days ago, the new speaker’s choice for Chairman of the Intelligence Committee was given the most elementary test for those who work in intelligence. He flunked it. He didn’t even know if Osama Bin Laden was a Shite or a Sunni, and I am afraid that many others upon whom we depend for leadership would not have done any better. It is frightening to think that we have leaders passing laws and making decisions concerning such important matters about which they are not at all well-informed
All of these are issues that can and will influence our lives and those of our children. Christians in particular must take a great interest in what is taking place in Washington and Sacramento. Bills will come before legislative bodies that will either enhance these evils or limit them.
Christians must make their convictions heard in each case. Listed below with names and addresses are some of the persons that need to hear from you, as bills are proposed. Put this list where you can find it and ask God to help you in your resolve to use it.
The best way to keep up with what is happening in these legislative centers is by the Internet. Christians should be well acquainted with the American Family Association and Focus on the Family. Dr. Dobson’s organization, The American Family Council is a watchdog agency which concerns itself with what is happening in Sacramento. If one does not have a computer, then letters and phone calls can do very well, but Christians remain un-involved at the peril of all of us. A helpful list follows below. Put it in a safe place and express your convictions regularly. Not only you, but your children and grandchildren will be glad you did.
The author of this article wishes to remain anonymous. He is a great man of God who spent many years as a Missionary in an Islamic nation and lives in the great Pacific Northwest.
This article was written around the time of the passage of California’s Prop 8 and the homosexual radicals were on the prowl looking for anything to attack that disagreed with their agenda. Who would have ever “thunk” that we as a Christian Nation would ever have a President that made Judas look like a Saint?
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
The notion thaat there can be anything called a homosexual marriage is absured, it is just a lie that Satan uses to decieve those with a weak mind. Just because a lie is told over and over for years does not make it truth. A lie is a lie is a lie is a lie ….. this could be repeated for pages and pages or ages and ages but the truth is, it’s a LIE! Every body knows that the notion of homosexual marriage is a lie and they will not let the truth interfer with their sinful conduct.
It does not matter if a person believes in what the Bible has to say, the truth will always be the truth. Jesus said in:
“John 14:6 “ I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” That passage settles it, perroid! It does not matter if a person wants to believe the lie, it does not matter if a supreme court rules the lie to be the truth, it is still a lie. A lie is a lie is a lie is a lie!
