God and Guns
In the wake of the Obergefell opinion of the Supremes, several “Christian” Colleges have already caved in in order to avoid any and all persecution from the sodomites who are controlling our land. They haven’t even considered fighting the evil; instead, they have compliantly changed their policies to accommodate sodomite unmarriage. Baylor University in Texas; Hope College of Holland, Michigan; and Belmont University of Nashville, as well as Notre Dame University, have now approved benefits to sodomites who claim they are married. So there they are making prostrations, worshipping the sodomite idols of our day, hoping to avoid the persecution against Christians that is clearly rising in our land. By the way, some object to my use of the term sodomite, but it is the Biblical term (the term homosexual is not Biblical and is surrendering ground to the sodomites). It is used five times in the King James Bible (Deuteronomy 23:17; 1 Kings 14:24, 15:12, and 22:46; and 2 Kings 23:7), and twice in the New King James (1 Corinthians 6:9, 1 Timothy 1:10).
In addition to the colleges, school boards and publishing houses are already changing curriculums to align with the sodomite propaganda. Recently CBN News reported what is transpiring in Virginia, and it is extremely graphic.
When children sit in schools that advance sodomite propaganda and then see sodomy glorified in the media, portrayed as normal, natural, and simply an alternative lifestyle choice, they’re easily enticed and persuaded. This is why Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia said, “Many Americans do not want persons who openly engage in homosexual conduct as partners in their business, and scoutmasters for their children, as teachers in their children’s schools or as borders in their home. … They view this as protecting themselves and their families from a lifestyle that they believe to be immoral and destructive.” And he is absolutely right.
Two other tragic developments are with the exposure of Planned Parenthood and defeat of Little Sisters of the Poor. As most of you now know, “Planned Parenthood, the nation’s No. 1 abortion provider, was caught in an undercover sting exposing one of their top leaders casually elaborating on harvesting human organs from aborted babies while sipping wine and eating her lunch.” This week, a second video was posted, which is equally damning. “This barbarism comes at the same time the Obama administration wins in court crushing faith and forcing the 175-year-old Little Sisters of the Poor to participate in providing contraceptives against their religious convictions. The leader of the nuns, Sr. Loraine Marie Maguire, said, “We simply cannot choose between our care for the elderly poor and our faith.”
The despair in the air of America is so thick, you can cut it with a knife. What are Christians to do in the light of this onslaught? Shall we cave in, as some are doing? Shall we surrender the ground and go into hiding? Shall we put up the white flag of surrender? Indeed, we see these responses all too clearly by many who name the Name of Jesus Christ. But is that what our Lord and Master would have us to do? Does the fact that Jesus Christ is, in reality, King of Kings and Lord of Lord’s make a difference?
Should the reality that He is seated on the Throne of the Universe and that all authority in heaven and on earth has been granted unto Him alone cause His followers to respond in a way other than capitulation and surrender? The answer, of course, is yes. Then why is it that so many of Christ’s followers are responding in the wrong way? I would content that it is because they have the wrong World View of History. Yes, that’s right—that subject you may have concluded to be old, dusty, and irrelevant is actually quite the opposite.
To have a proper World View of history is to have a proper World View of reality as a whole. To have that Biblical World View will enable us to view the events of our own day in the proper perspective and with an accurate framework. The fact is that Christians cannot have an ability to stand in times of crisis, to stand in the face of persecution, to have an unshakable confidence in the infallible, inerrant Word of God until they learn to see history from the perspective of the sovereign rulership of Jesus Christ. Christians in America today desperately need this understanding.
To begin, we must start at the beginning. Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” Since God created it all, He owns it all, and that includes not just the objects and creatures He made, but man himself. Every person who has or ever will live belongs to God.
