Many of you have heard of “progressive” thinkers.
The word “progressive” sounds powerfully intelligent.
Here’s what it means.
“(of a group, person, or idea) favoring or implementing social reform or new, liberal ideas:”
As you know, homosexuality is progressive thinking.
Let me ask you a question?
How could sin be progressive?
Is it positive progression?
It is always regression.
Jesus said in Matthew 7:13-14 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”
Even though in the United States, the LGBT community makes up 3 to 4% of the US population, 50% of Americans support the sin of homosexuality. If you do not agree with the sin of homosexuality, you are not progressive but regressive or becoming “less advanced.”
So according to this Scripture, since the crowd is driven by being “progressive,” they’re on the road to destruction.
Righteousness is difficult. But if you want to see Jesus as Savior and not Judge, you receive grace to obey the Word of God to repent (change your mind), and receive the provision of salvation by the grace through the redemption (purchasing back of men from sin) that is in Christ Jesus.
Proof of this progressive thinking is identified in the arguments from homosexuals that declare that anyone that is opposed to homosexuality is archaic or behind the times.
This, of course is a ploy to get you to see that your position is not modern but old. Case in point, the vice president Biden’s statement that protecting gay rights trumps cultural and social traditions. Well, we all know that this remark is a remake of a statement that says that social and cultural traditions is not progressive but regressive, or archaic.
The Bible in Daniel chapter 7, called the Lord God, “The Ancient of Days.”
Because His ways is from everlasting to everlasting.
What the devil is really trying to say through LGBT is that progressive is modern and that God and His ways is old, worn out, behind the times, and just plain out of touch with the progressives of man. So, if you believe that you are behind the times, you want to seem “hip!”
Well, you will never see God trying to be hip. Men need to catch up with God because man is behind the times, regressive, and will die.
Man is behind the times with God and His Word.
Malachi 3:6 says, “I am the Lord, I change not…”
Progressive means that you change to make progress. God doesn’t need to change to make progress.
Hebrews 13:8 says, “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever.”
Psalm 119:89 says, “Forever, O Lord, Your Word is settled in heaven.”
Hebrews 6 tells us that His oath is “immutable” or unchangeable.
So since God can’t change. Since Jesus is the same, and since His Word is settled in heaven……..
It’s funny how progressive people try to change God that said that He “change not.”
It’s funny how progressive people try to change Jesus that says, “the same yesterday, today, and forever.”
So we as believers agree with God, and Jesus. They do not change. Now we believers are to change because 2 Corinthians 3 tells us that we are changed into the same image from glory to glory as by the Spirit of God. Romans 8 tells us that we are to be conformed to His (Jesus) image.
Why do we need to change?
Because we do not have the full change yet. When we die and go to heaven in Christ, we will get the full change in our spirit and soul. When our bodies are resurrected from the dead, we get the full change of our bodies just like when Jesus was raised from the dead.
1 John 3:2-3 says, “Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.”
SO the very “progressive” that they are seeking is a perverted progression or really, in all actuality, homosexuality, and all sin, is true regression.
Is it any wonder that we see transgender people changing their gender? Body piercing. Tattoos. Cross dressing. All of these things is a revelation of an inner identity crisis that only a relationship with the Father, through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ could solve. Dissatisfaction of the outer is a revelation of inner dissatisfaction.
The heart longs to be right, but man believes that he could progress in sin and the end is death. But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Happiness inside can only be given when we surrender our way, our rules, and our sinful nature.
Just like what Jesus said in Matthew 7, many will be on the road to destruction, needlessly.
The world’s progression is headed towards destruction, but you can change your ways by surrendering your ways.
So if you want to continue in your perverted progression, just continue to ignore the call to repent.
If you want to truly progress, change your mind and ask God to forgive you.
