Prop 8 win The Final Warning
Prop 8 Win Not a Victory, but a Final Warning
Today California High Court chose to listen to its people and uphold natural marriage, this is not a victory for Christians, but a warning to those whose who have chosen to define themselves by their sin of homosexuality. I watched the coverage after the decision was handed down, I was saddened to see how hurt they were, and some started to scream "Shame on you" repeatedly. I saw the hurt, but not from the ruling but from them being ruled by sin, so lost, and some really believed if they got their way it would fill the darkness in their life. It will not! They have been convinced (by other gays, Satan, or themselves) that your were born this way and that is that. Think again.
"Since we see homosexual acts consistently described as sin in the scriptures, we can be certain that pursuing gay marriage will place a person at odds against God. He or she will never find the peace that they are yearning for because they have embraced a carnal, sinful mindset (Romans 8:5-9). Instead of having peace, they will find themselves always searching for fulfillment and affirmation. The scriptures confirm this, as Isaiah wrote, but the wicked are like the tossing sea, which cannot rest, whose waves cast up mire and mud. "There is no peace," says my God, "for the wicked." Isaiah 57:20-21. "They will constantly try to convince themselves and others that their unnatural relationship (homosexual) is natural"
"When a person decides to embrace the lie of a gay identity, the deception is completed. From then on, it can seem like an unbreakable stronghold, especially if it conveniently explains the pattern of experiences and feelings the person may have had in life to that point. Even so, a person making the conclusion that they are gay will discover an endless desire for peace and approval, but will not find it (Isaiah 48:22). They will need to surround themselves with others who continually reaffirm their homosexuality in order to numb their conscience about the lies they have embraced. They may even seek God’s approval of their choices by embracing “gay theology”."
It is easy to believe the hype "God Hates You", "If you are true to yourself you don't fight the homosexual temptation", "Only your gays friends really understand and love you". It is all lies to keep locked in your sin. "God loves every person (John 3:16). He has made them in his image and likeness (Genesis 1:26-27). What God hates is the sin that corrupts people’s hearts, enticing them to rebel against God. Because God loves us so much, he has placed many sobering warnings about homosexuality in the scriptures. To those who will turn away from their sin practice, God offers mercy, forgiveness and healing through Jesus Christ (2 Chronicles 7:14, 1 Peter 2:24)."
It is NOT too late to turn your life around. The ruling today wasn't done to you, but for you as a last attempt by God to bring you home, God loves you always, and if you don't come to back to him He'll still love you right into the Lake of Fire.
PS. Do not get comfortable Christians; this battle is far from over.
