It is very hard to believe that we continue to throw money into a solvable problem that could be accomplished without money.
Don’t misunderstand me. Funding for HIV/AIDS is needed for those that are currently ill, but also look at the fact that all sickness and disease comes from the devil. Look at the fact that by now, we’ve probably would have had the cure for some of the diseases on this planet if we would stop killing children (abortion) that probably were destined to become doctors, chemists, technicians purposed to find a cure.
In an NBC News writeup, the president says the the US will keep fighting to eradicate AIDS, or find a cure.
I did a double take because how could you eradicate a disease while supporting the means by which this disease manifested?
How can you eradicate AIDS while advocating homosexuality?
Does it make any sense to anyone?
With the combination of aborting children that may have been sent by the Lord with the cure, and advocating the sin of homosexuality, we are reduced to just spending money.
Sarcastically, Ecclesiastes tells us that “Money answers all things.”
It is a sarcastic statement which alludes to the fact that the only way to solve a problem other than the way God intended is by throwing tons of money into the problem.
The CDC has stated that the primary way in which HIV/AIDS is contracted continues to be MSM or men having sex or acting out sexually with men.
These knowingly hypocritical statements only slightly appears to give some hope to those that are laden with this terrible disease. The sad thing is that we fool ourselves into thinking that a cure to an incurable disease will be the answer. We mustn’t fool ourselves because a cure will only embolden the lascivious.
The other side of this unfortunate coin is the collateral damage of people that never engaged in homosexuality. Sadly, they are stricken with this disease.
Romans 5:12 says, “Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned.”
Sin is the cause of death. Sin is the deliberate act of defiance against the known will of God. When a person deliberately sins against God, death is the result.
Look at what Paul said in Romans 1:26-27. “For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.”
Note “receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.”
Sadly, LGBT and sympathizers of the sin of homosexuality do not believe that the sin of homosexuality exacts a penalty.
The word “penalty” is the Greek word from Strong’s Concordance….“g0489. ἀντιμισθία antimisthia; from a compound of 473 and 3408; requital, correspondence:— recompense. AV (Authorized Version) (2)- recompense 2; a reward given in compensation, requital, recompense.”
The reward for the sin of homosexuality is STDs, in particular HIV/AIDS.
Romans 6:23 says, “The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Metaphorically, “wages” means “Hire or pay for sin.”
Many people believe that this is cruel. That we should not be judged because of the sins committed. However, God is holy, just, and righteous. He created us and not we ourselves. He is Lord of heaven and earth. He has every right to judge mankind for rebelling against Him.
Too often, we try to make God to be in the wrong and not only is this wild, mind boggling thought crazy, it is the very thing that satan himself has tried to sell. And people bought it without a thought. That God is wrong and that sin is right.
Getting back to what president Obama said.
He announced that $100 million in funding would be redirected to a National Institute of Health program to seek a cure for AIDS.
As noble a cause this is, we all know the real cure for AIDS is…………drum roll………cymbal crash……..Abstinence.
You can eradicate AIDS if humans would discipline themselves and repent of sin. Return to the plan and purpose of God established in marriage between one man and one woman. When a person gives themselves over to controvert the Word of God, then the consequences associated with sin is in play.
These consequences are avoidable.
Why do we seek to get into trouble and then look for extraordinary means and methods to get us out when all we need to do is avoid it altogether?
Why do we take the hard way when the easy way is before us?
Why do we look to do the opposite of what the Word of God tells us to do?
It’s called rebellion.
Again, it just seems like when a statement to eradicate AIDS is made, all it takes is a simple look at what started this in the first place and make progress towards stopping the behavior.
That’s why the Lord Jesus said, “You must be born again.”
The person must change within so that the behavior changes. And we must be mindful that it’s not just a behavioral change but our attitudinal response to a loving God, to please Him.
The Lord satisfies our longings and deepest desires for true intimacy. The Lord gives us the love that we need so that we do not search for anything or anybody else to satisfy that need. We were created to worship the Lord. He alone can satisfy us with good things. Not evil things that destroy.
To say that we could eradicate a deadly incurable disease without stopping the behavior that caused it, is not giving anyone hope.
It is flat out deception.
How can you not get pregnant? By not having sex. How can you not get HIV/AIDS? By not having sex with an infected person.
Who is authorized to have sex? One male, and one female that are already married.
This is the plan of God according to Genesis 2:24. This means that by following the plan of God, we could see a significant reduction towards eradication of HIV/AIDS, reduce the strain that is upon the medical industry, and save countless lives. This means that resources could be sent to other areas of critical need.
Our job as preachers is to preach the Word of truth. It is up to people to either accept the truth or reject the truth.
IF they accept the truth, they are on safe ground.
IF they reject the truth and continue in a deadly direction, then Romans 1:26-27 and 6:23a needlessly applies.
Let’s continue to tell the truth about this. Additionally, the church and preachers in particular play a vital role in ministering to the community the Word of God. By living holy lives and preaching the Word of God, and by establishing community outreach to people who are caught in this whirlpool of HIV/AIDS, perhaps we can make a meaningful difference in informing the community of the perfect solution to this perfect storm of HIV/AIDS.
Lying about it will not get the job done.
