Is it a sin or NOT a sin? The following story is a prime example of what happens when even just a “little” bit of sin is allowed to happen in a person’s life OR in what’s supposed to be a “Christian establishment”. For if the “gate” to sin is opened, even just “a little”, it won’t be long before those flood gates of sin are WIDE OPEN and sin/Satan comes to COMPLETELY OVERTAKE YOU (the Judeo-Christian individual) or the “Christian establishment”.
In the case up above, we have a CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY. In its official “mission statement”, they more or less say, “We believe marriage is between a man and a woman”. HOWEVER……one of their leading talking heads as of late, has more or less said that “In the CURRENT CULTURE WAR, it would be “politically incorrect” NOT to extend EMPLOYEE BENEFITS to “lawfully married gay couples”.
Wow! Just wow. There’s just no words, here……My soul is BEYOND GRIEVED at this guy’s statement for he’s been thoroughly deceived! For what’s legal in man’s eyes is NOT always legal in God’s eyes and it wouldn’t hurt for this Christian university (AND people as individuals) to remember that!
But see? That’s how Satan and his cronies operate. Subtlety……..like a “Trojan horse”, in other words. [And if you don’t know what I mean by “Trojan Horse”, google and research the “Battle of Troy”]. They’re not gonna come attacking all at once, usually. It’s more slowly. For they KNOW if they try to come spiritually attacking all at once, that a person’s or institution’s faith is gonna be strong enough at that point to withstand the attack. But……..if they start to come in more slowly, their “spiritual attacks” are less likely noticed BECAUSE it’s so subtle. Do you get where I’m going with this, people?
We’re living in a country today (here in America) where the very last “hold-outs” of God’s Word (Christian universities, churches, Messianic Jewish congregations, etc.) are slowly and silently being spiritually attacked by Satan and his cronies (both demonic and human). They do this in one of two ways: FEAR or EMOTIONS.
Oftentimes they’ll set a person or an institution up by placing an “overly-emotional” pro-homosexual advertisement or “gay person” or “gay child” in front of them! And the message will be like, “Poor Jimmy! He can’t help how he feels! He was born this way!” and that’s a lie from the pits of HELL! But oftentimes, the Christian person or institution doesn’t realize that!
However, the few people or places that DO realize that (that the homosexual “I was born this way” argument’s a LIE from the pits of Hell?) Satan and his cronies got ANOTHER tactic and that’s FEAR. Fear of being labeled a “hater”, fear of losing one’s job, fear of losing one’s friend/family member, etc.
In fact, I’ve experienced this spiritual “battle” in my own life. For example, my family KNOWS my “biblical stance” on homosexuality (that it’s a grave sin and CONDEMNED in the bible). However, none of them are Christians. And so for Thanksgiving last year, they decided to invite a gay family member AND HIS BOYFRIEND over for Thanksgiving dinner! Because they thought FOR SURE that in-your-face-approach would emotionally undermine me to the point where that would make me “change my stance on homosexuality” but IF ANYTHING, it has only managed to make me EVEN MORE RESOLUTE on my BIBLICAL STANCE on homosexuality!
[Now…..I don’t have anything personal against the gay family member or his boyfriend, on a basic human level. In fact, the “boyfriend” is a really nice human being. However, that being said, I don’t feel like I should be forced to sit through a holiday dinner with him and his boyfriend, while also being strongly encouraged by family NOT to speak up about the sin of homosexuality while at the holiday dinner table. For my “being silent” and “cordial” on the issue would only seem to paint the picture that I BIBLCALLY APPROVE of homosexuality, when I clearly don’t!]
And they’ve made no mention of if they’re gonna try to make the same thing happen this year but if so, you can bet your torso I will NOT be silent on the issue! That’s the problem here in America, today! Too many people are SILENT on the issue and for WHAT? It’s not gonna do any TRUE Christian/Judeo-Christian any good to be silent on the issue for the Lord Jesus Christ will hold US accountable for “every idle word” we speak. EVERY. IDLE. WORD.
So when the Day of Judgement comes around, and Jesus Christ asks each “Christian person” the fateful question, “Why did you remain silent on the sin of homosexuality in the face of all the lost souls around you?”, what will each person say? “I was afraid, Lord” or “I didn’t want to lose my job, Lord”? Neither of those excuses will fly with Jesus! He created and made all things and has the ability to shake the Earth and the waters with just the mere sound of his voice! In fact, HE SPOKE the universe into existence! He’s the Almighty Judge of ALL! [And believe me, that goes just as much for ME as it does for ANY “Christian”/Judeo-Christian!]
Sadly, it probably won’t be long now before this “Christian university” changes its stance on marriage. For homosexual couples will come forth and say, “You guys are ALREADY giving us benefits for being lawfully married……….so if we’re lawfully married, perhaps you need to change your definition of what marriage IS!” And sadly, that Christian university probably WILL “bow to pressure” from the left. In fact, if you ask ME, they already HAVE! They will change their definition of marriage eventually, EVEN IF they don’t agree with it! A PRIME example of what happens when sin is “condoned” on ANY LEVEL!
And I don’t know much but I DO know THIS: That particular university (and many out there like it) have just personally invited the WRATH OF GOD on their “institutions”. Just like any individual person who’s now changed their stance in a similar manner, has just personally invited the WRATH OF GOD upon their VERY SOUL!
You think I’m kidding? I’ve personally experienced the Wrath of God MYSELF once, on a different subject! In my early 20’s, I experienced a thunder and lightning storm that was SO POWERFUL, that I thought the world was gonna end! And that was just a SMALL TASTE of the Lord’s Wrath! Imagine what it would be like for a person or an individual to experience the Lord’s ETERNAL WRATH!
And I have to be totally honest, here. IF and WHEN this university “further compromises on its biblical morals” (the way it already HAS done), I’m not gonna be surprised in the least. For Satan’s goal right now is to work against the very last ‘HOLD-OUTS’ of those who don’t biblically agree with homosexuality!
And the ones he CAN’T get to agree, on the SIN of homosexuality? Look out, folks! It’s gonna get UGLY! People are gonna lose their jobs…….and possibly more! We’re living in the Last Days, folks! This is called THE TIME OF TESTING! This is the time when the Lord Jesus is SEPARATING THE WHEAT FROM THE TARES!
And I DO believe that what makes a person a TARE is ACCEPTANCE of homosexuality in ANY way or form! Many Christians say, “I don’t agree with homosexuality personally, but I DO believe in gay rights”. That’s a redundant, lukewarm statement! For in the Lord’s eyes, you’re either FOR his biblical law or you’re against it! And if you’re against it, (and care more about pleasing fellow men than pleasing God), you’re in a WORLD of spiritual trouble, folks!
But let this serve as an example to you. DO NOT become like this university and “compromise your biblical values” for ANY REASON! I don’t care WHAT the reason is! I don’t even care if a “homosexual” family member comes to you, “whining” about their homosexuality and how they can’t help it, etc..etc., DO NOT invite the Wrath of God upon you by CONDONING or AGREEING with such sin, or by condoning “gay rights”.
For the “Gay Rights Movement”? It’s not about rights AT ALL, people, it’s about PROMOTION OF LUST/SODOMY and EROSION of the image of God (a man and woman in a TRADITIONAL marriage, and any possible children by NATURAL PROCREATION – married couples who have children by artificial means is another story).
Don’t be like that “Christian” university, folks! STAND STRONG IN YOUR BIBLICAL CONVICTIONS ON SIN! Stay in God’s Word! Homosexuality’s an abomination and a sin and don’t let any person or institution tell you otherwise!
