The normal man is now conditioned to believe that homosexuality, feminism, and abortion are “ok”. Some sympathy can be given to them, they do not have the Holy Spirit to discern truth, nor do they have the Word as their authority. By ignorance or willful blindness they cannot see what believers see on these topics. Not so for Christians who support these causes. What scripture supports any of these activities? None. Are they clear in their prohibition of these activities? Like glass. I will be so bold as to say you did not read your Bible if you are a Christian supporting any of these, or you are in disturbing rebellion that causes normal backsliding to pale in comparison.
We have all been there, we know what is right but we do wrong anyway. The flesh is like that at times. We get controlled by it at times. We confess our sin to God, and we acknowledge the wrongdoing. Not so the supporters of sodomites, witchcraft, and child sacrificers, they will tell you they know better than their Bibles. They will say truth is relative, or the scriptures are not clear, or that Jesus told them they could do it. I will be bold in saying HE did not give you authority to counter HIS Word.
This is New Testament, not even the Old, so there is no comparing this to ceremonial laws of Israel done away with. This confirms that Leviticus 20: 13 is still quite valid today. As believers we affirm this as true. There is no room for support of homosexuality for Christians.
There are many passages in the Bible that condemn rebellious behavior of wives towards their husbands, in fact most of the book of Proverbs addresses it. I chose Ephesians because this is the number one problem between men and women, female rebellion. It is everywhere, on TV, the movies, in the books. You are to respect your husband and do what he says so long as it is not counter to God’s Word.I am not suggesting that there can’t be some give and take, but when it is time to make a decision, the husband has final authority unless he exceeds it. The irony of the rebellion of the wife is that she is submitting to what her culture is teaching her to do. She is not an individual or a rebel, she is just their tool.
That is a serious linking of sins. Witchcraft is punishable by death. While no one will kill you these days for it, it will still spiritually kill you, and separate you from God.
|4 Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,|
|5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.|
God forms babies and He knows them even before He forms them! Humans place the seed in the field so to speak, but God causes the baby to form and grow. Abortion is simply murder. You are destroying something God himself formed. That child will be before the throne of God and it will be known to God who their killer is. What are these children killed for? Pride, ego, vanity, the idea that they will mess up someone’s “life”. Well if you kill a baby your life is void! The scars of an abortion go far beyond the physical, many women become depressed after an abortion and some even kill themselves. Justice doesn’t stop there for the unregenerate. Eternal separation from God continues long after physical death occurs. To support such an act as a Christian is unbelievable.
1 John 3:15
Scripture says if you hate then you are guilty of murder, do you think God will support the view that abortion is ok? You are hating His work that He created by destroying it.
I am not the judge, Lord Jesus is. His will is plain to see, open up the Bible and you will know. Heathen and foul minded people will not respect the authority of the Bible, but believers should see Scripture as inerrant. Jesus is forgiving, but to outright counter the Word of God is severe disrespect for God. There is more forgiveness to the woman who aborts and then repents, than to the woman who never aborts but encourages others to do so. For a Christian woman to encourage it is insane. The same is true for the homosexual who repents vs the heterosexual who encourages, and for the woman who divorces and repents vs the one who actively encourages rebellion in households. The proper spirit is in the former examples, and the vile spirit is in the latter.
People who take pleasure in evil are as guilty as the ones doing evil. Do you like a form of entertainment in which evil acts are glorified? You are guilty. Do you like to gossip in the breakroom? Do you encourage someone to get an abortion or egg them on to disrespect their husband? Do you enjoy malice? Then this scripture speaks of you. So often I hear in life these things. A wife should never go around bad mouthing her husband in public. No child should be aborted. Homosexuality is against God’s Word, and that is good enough for me. The unnaturalness and diseases associated with it come second but confirm the truth. You are not loving a homosexual by encouraging them, you hate them when you do so.
We all need forgiveness. We have all failed. No one is righteous by their own deeds. Ever get into a conversation with a gossip and they suck you in to talk about another person? I have, and I bet you have to. We are backbiters, and it is a sin all the same. This is why Lord Jesus came, to save us, because we are doomed without Him. He paid for our sins at the cross, His blood payment for our sins. He was buried when He died, but on the third day after His death He was resurrected, proving He is the Son of God, and therefore able to save us. Those who believe that Jesus can save them have salvation. It is a gift of God alone. You can do nothing but believe Lord Jesus shall save you and you are saved. No rituals, no water baptism, no good deeds shall save you or keep you saved. Only Jesus saves and keeps you. He will place the Holy Spirit in you to dwell with you, and He shall teach you. You shall live forever with Jesus.
P.S. Water Baptism is a valid ordinance to declare one’s faith to the public, just do not confuse it as having anything to do with saving you.
