A Christian and a Biden supporter? Repent!

Are you a Christian and a Biden supporter? Repent!

As if there hasn’t already been a dozen immoral executive actions implemented by the supposedly “faithful” Catholic – let this one sink in!

It’s child abuse! We’re talking about the assistant health and human services director of the United States who won’t even say the federal government won’t interfere with the parental rights of a minor child when it comes to sexually mutilating their body.

If this situation doesn’t cut your heart (Acts 2:37) when it comes to the sinful decision you made on election day then nothing that the Biden administration does will be able to cut your cold, calloused and numb heart.

Don’t feign a righteous indignation of being offended concerning your belief about this post being political … be offended by the fact that we’re talking about a government’s most powerful individual that’s endorsing and encouraging sin within the hearts of children and all you can think about is politics!

And some still wonder if the West is actually ripe for the judgment of God.

““But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of offenses! For offenses must come, but woe to that man by whom the offense comes!” (Matthew 18:6-7 NKJV)

What some people consider help

There is no doubting hurricane Harvey’s devastation.

Hundreds of thousands of people have been directly affected. Infrastructure has been rendered useless. Houses turned into pits of mold and piled-up garbage. Education and jobs put on hold.

People need help! But what some people consider help serves as a prime example of a deeply seeded sign of depravity in our culture.

Help, by its very nature, is an action meant to create improvement! When one understands the nature of help, then one can understand how pro-abortionists view children – an inconvenient and optional choice that creates an undue, unwarranted and unwanted burden that is better-off put to death … a point of view that is far from understanding the responsibility attached to having sex and the value of the life it helps to create.

When someone offers “help” the question must be asked, “What are they trying to help me accomplish?” Because all help doesn’t improve our situation in life.

Now in the time of his distress King Ahaz became increasingly unfaithful to the Lord. This is that King Ahaz. For he sacrificed to the gods of Damascus which had defeated him, saying, “Because the gods of the kings of Syria help them, I will sacrifice to them that they may help me.” But they were the ruin of him and of all Israel.” (2 Chronicles 28:22-23 NKJV)

(#147) The Proverbs of Solomon 20:20-The Damnable Generation

Since God Created humans, only God can provide specific understanding of human behavior. God gave Solomon Divine Wisdom (1 Kings Chapters 3 and 10) to explain what and why behavior is as it is, and Proverbs 10:1-24:34 are randomly written, as if they were Solomon’s judgments about individual cases brought to him, or simply God-given explanations about life. New Testament passages may help see the continuation of Wisdom offered through Jesus Christ.

Proverbs 20:20: “Whoever curses his father or his mother, His lamp will be put out in deep darkness.”

Nothing on earth equals the depravity of a child who disrespects, abuses, or condemns his/her father and/or mother! A father and a mother are necessary to give each individual life. Something is seriously missing from the moral compass of anyone who has no regard for those who have given the most precious gift humanly possible: life! It is horrible to see it so widespread that it characterizes a generation. “There is a generation that curses its father, And does not bless its mother” (Proverbs 30:11). A generation who believes no matter whatever they want, they are entitled to, they can have it, they have no gratitude for it, will not “’Honor your father and mother,’ which is the first commandment with promise: ‘that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth’” (Ephesians 6:2-3). Instead of “The Greatest Generation,” they will be known as “The Damnable Generation!”

Under Moses’ Law, such people did not deserve to live, for disrespect of parents has created a child’s heart of disrespect for all other authority, even God! “And he who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death” (Exodus 21:17); “For everyone who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death. He has cursed his father or his mother. His blood shall be upon him” (Leviticus 20:9).

There is no death penalty in the Law of Christ, but there is an eternal condemnation for those who never repent of this attitude. “Children, obey your parents in all things, for this is well pleasing to the Lord” (Colossians 3:20). “But we know that the law is good if one uses it lawfully, knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God which was committed to my trust” (1 Timothy 1:8-11). Some of the worst sins ever committed by humans are not only violations of God’s Law, and “murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers” are listed with them, but this also is contrary to common sensibilities in every culture on earth! The Apostle John wrote that hatred in the heart can lead to murder (1 John 3:15), so a child’s hatred of either or both parents produces cursing of them, or even murdering them! Many mass murders began with the slaughter of a parent or parents.

Repent, before your children do the same to you.

Born With Sin?

            It is a teaching of many denominational churches that each person born in this world is contaminated with the sin of Adam. In a discussion on Romans 5, this comment is made: “But this universal state [of sin] must have had a cause. It did. The consequence’s of Adam’s sin was that the ‘many were made sinners’ (vs. 19)” (Scofield Bible, p. 1557).

Romans 5:19 does not teach this at all. Read Romans 5:12-19 and note the following: a) the action of Adam brought a result: death (5:17a). The action of Christ brought a result: life (5:17b). With death as with life there is judgment (5:18). Romans 5:19, therefore, is saying this: as one was brought into the realm of sin, one is also brought into the realm of life. We choose which realm to be in by our actions (cf. 6:16-18). RT

Sin Can Come In More Than One Color

Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble is like a bad tooth and a foot out of joint.” (Proverbs 25:19)

I thought of this verse from Proverbs today when I saw a story on the news about a “United Church of Christ” congregation that decided to place a rainbow-colored banner in their “church” yard to welcome any and all “gay” Boy Scouts. One man from the “church” was interviewed and said he wanted to make sure that they [the homosexual children] knew that all of God’s children were welcome there. This man with his endorsement, on national TV, encouraged the practice of child homosexuality and wanted them to believe that God is accepting of it! That my friend, to say the least, is the epitome of a whole mouth full of spiritually broken teeth representing an unfaithful man not worthy of any spiritual confidence during this time of trouble!

The scriptures describe sin with the color of scarlet, but it’s obvious that sin can come in more one color. For a “church” to take a banner colored according to the very sign given to Noah after the world was judged due to sin and to endorse its meaning concerning homosexuality is more than unambiguous apostasy – it’s an abomination that attempts to pervert God’s grace to the core. Jude identified this mentality when he warned God’s church by saying, “For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Jude 4 – emphasis mine) This depraved “church” hasn’t challenged me – this depraved “church” has challenged and attempted to rebuke the authority of God. They have denied the Law of the Spirit of Life that leads to Jesus to endorse the lust of the flesh that leads to death. This “church” proves that having the name of Christ on their building proves nothing! They joyfully removed the “banner of the blood of the Lamb” and happily replaced it with a literal banner of sin. They have rejected God’s will and have belligerently forgotten that “…the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.”” (2 Timothy 2:19).

If you are currently practicing a homosexual lifestyle or you have repented from such a sin, please do not place any faith in this “church’s” endorsement of homosexuality. Don’t trust your spiritual well-being with this thinking. Like all sins, with the exception of one, there is a basis found in the scriptures that shows forgiveness can be found for committing homosexual sins (1 Corinthians 6:9-11), but there is no basis whatsoever in the scriptures that God has ever or will ever spiritually accept homosexuality. Those who say anything contrary to that truth are guilty of the one sin to which there is no forgiveness, and that’s sinning against the Spirit of God by perverting His plain word, rejecting His obvious truth and leading others down a path they have labeled safe and celebratory when God has labeled it sinful and shameful in the Bible. The color and purpose behind God’s rainbow teaches us that sin will again be judged on a large-scale one day, and homosexuality is a weight that will keep a person out of Heaven no matter who places a banner in their yard. The colors of the rainbow don’t excuse sin, they teach that there’s such a thing as sin. The blood of Jesus can cover the sin represented by the rainbow-banner, but the blood of Jesus won’t mix with it.

When sin of any kind is the issue, then confidence must be had that the truth is being revealed concerning God’s will and that the solution through repentance and the blood of Jesus is given; but when an individual endorses sin instead of the solution to sin, then that person is like a broken tooth and a foot out of joint – they can’t be trusted and will remain useless spiritually…at least useless as far as any good thing is concerned. The invitation of the gospel of Christ remains open to any and all sinners, homosexual or not, who wish to find forgiveness; but forgiveness only comes through the grace of God that teaches us to deny ungodliness and worldly lusts, and to live soberly, righteously and godly in this present world (Titus 2:11-12). Those words are in black and white, no matter what their banner says or how bad they may want to “color” them.

But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ: how they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lusts. These are sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit.” (Jude 17-19)
