Justices Thomas and Alito correctly, in descent, declared that Kim Davis’ Constitutional right to apply her faith in objecting to applying her signature to a same sex marriage certificate was clearly Constitutional.
There’s no question that she was deliberately targeted to make a point.
As with Cakes With Melissa and other believers in Christ that were sued, arrested, or fired from their jobs because they’ve refused to provide service, honoring the vile sin of homosexuality. They declared every resistance as sexual discrimination.
All of a sudden, homosexuality is a “race” deserving of laws to get people to accept sin as normal. Homosexuality isn’t a race of people. But they’ve hijacked The Civil Rights movement and now it’s a violation of law.
Furthermore, you’re not allowed to practice your faith.
So you violate Civil Rights because you obeyed your conscience and exercised your Constitutional right to practice your religion. In turn, they get to exercise their religion and are more protected by law than other America citizens.
Homosexuality is an act of sin, not a race of people.
See how insane people are?
The Constitution doesn’t have a provision regarding marriage, let alone, same sex marriage. Now Justices Thomas and Alito concurred but the Constitution DOES have a provision in guarding your right to exercise religion.
Kim Davis was arrested and jailed, and later freed.
The lower court’s ruling became the law of the land in June of 2015 during the Obama administration.
Even without the Constitution, believers in Christ will do the Word of Christ because true believers obey the Lord over any court ruling to force believers to violate the Scriptures.
While there is a need to apply the Scriptures, it’s important to understand that NOTHING GOOD comes out of the vile sin of homosexuality.
Name one thing that’s good about the vile sin of homosexuality.
Love? God’s love to deliver all from sin is far better.
STD’s. Is that good? Obviously not.
Romans 1:26-32 (NKJV Strong’s)
‘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.
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful;
who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.”
Why did God gave them up?
Because homosexuals insisted on doing things that’s insane. It’s against nature. It’s a biological violation. Man can’t give birth. And women can’t inseminate. It’s confusion, but they don’t care.
They’ve insisted and the Lord turned them over to do those things that is against nature.
But that’s not enough.
The whole intent is to normalize confusion. And to get normal people to be just as confused as they are. And then to make it a law to give it an appearance that the vile sin of homosexuality is normal. And then penalize you if you refuse to be as insane as they are.
Just on its face, same sex marriage will never have merit. Sin cannot stand on its on merit.

In South Africa, a disappointing piece of news.
An HIV prevention medicine failed to produce the results they were hoping for.
We must understand that the purpose of HIV prevention through medicine is to help people. The collateral damage of HIV/AIDS are little babies born with the disease of the infected mother. Having sex with an infected man is a regular occurrence.
Bisexuality is another known way of disease transmission.
Undisputed is the primary means of infection.
If there could be a prevention medicine, it would be a miracle for homosexuals.
It would mean that they would take the medicine and be immune from the transmission of HIV. But if that were true, what about the other STDs?
Why not develop a drug to prevent the transmission of herpes?
Perhaps they were developing a drug to prevent all STDs. But what would it do?
Embolden sexual immorality.
If, as a sinner, I could perform a preferential sex sin without the consequences associated with sexual sins, I would sexually sin like Klingons shooting at my star ship and I have my force shields up, and never weaken.
Except in the Star Trek shows, the Enterprise’s shield would weaken with each hit.
No sex sinning is the ultimate tool of prevention.
1 Corinthians 6:18-19 (NKJV Strong’s) “Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.”
Because man intends to sin against God, the consequences are condemned for a moment of pleasure. With their hopes dashed. They will continue to search for a way to prevent transmission. But know that they do so with a cloak around the reason.
To stop collateral transmission.
To stop others from being infected by way of homosexual sex.
Needle pricks or sharing needles.
And other ways of collateral transmission.
The article of the report could be read here
Ephesians 5:11-13 (NKJV Strong’s) “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.”
There’s many professed believers that will think nothing about a preacher attending a concert of this magnitude.
I waited a while before posting and blogging on this because I wanted make sure that this is an authentic report from confirmed sources regarding the event Joel and Victoria Osteen attended.
Joel and Victoria Osteen attended this immoral concert where Lady Gaga, self described bisexual, performed. But she wasn’t the only one on stage. There were others that would use massive expletives to express themselves.
When a well known person that profess to know God and claims to believe, and preach from the Bible are found among the wicked, it’s cause for alarm.
UNLESS there’s the remote chance that Joel and Victoria were backstage preaching or witnessing to sinners the true gospel of Jesus Christ to them.
But I don’t think so.
I hold on to hope that Joel and Victoria shared Christ, but when you have the interview Joel did with Larry King, preachers must hold to the standard at the expense of losing the stature of your personality.
Obviously, this concert was held during “Gay Pride Month.”
Remember. When the Lord called you to preach (not that Joel was called), you do not make the rules, or change the rules as you see fit.
Here’s why I don’t believe Joel did what real preachers would do.
Evangelist David Lynn was arrested in Toronto, Canada for street preaching to homosexuals.
Real preachers are persecuted, vilified, abused, and slain for the Lord.
If Joel were backstage preaching the true gospel or even witnessing, there’s a good chance he would have been attacked and thrown out.
There’s no question that God moves in places where we cannot see, however, if you study the book of Acts, and the ministry of Jesus, when and where sin is confronted, crowds or small groups of people showed up and committed violent acts to stop the propagating of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
There’s also times where Jesus and others ministered “One on one” with no incidents.
Now salt does no good unless it’s used.
Light is of no use if its light is turned off.
We’re called to be salt and light IN the world.
But does it require being in a place where sexual immorality is all in a show?
Do we have to be seated in the theater where scantily clad women and men are present, speaking perverse things?
The places of darkness require you to shut your light off.
There will be various sides of this debate, but we must be clear that the seed of the Word of God, unadulterated, must be planted, and fruit must be born if the Lord sent you into a place to be salt and light.
I once supported Fred Hammond doing a gospel album with Snoop Dog.
A very dumb mistake on my part.
To this day, nothing good came of it.
Now, I’m privy to something occurring behind the scenes to make Snoop Dog’s gospel album happen, but just because something set this occurrence in motion to fruition, it still doesn’t make it right and is of God.
It’s a habit of those that practice lawlessness to legitimize what they do by luring unsuspecting righteous people of God to endorse them.
Presence is endorsement.
When the world see you sitting there in a worldly lewd concert or participating in a “gospel album,” satan used it to keep people in bondage to sin.
But the people that claim to know the Lord ignore His holy omnipotence.
Isaiah 29:13-15 (NLT) “And so the Lord says,
“These people say they are mine.
They honor me with their lips,
but their hearts are far from Me.
And their worship of Me
is nothing but man-made rules learned by rote.
Because of this, I will once again astound these hypocrites
with amazing wonders.
The wisdom of the wise will pass away,
and the intelligence of the intelligent will disappear.”
What sorrow awaits those who try to hide their plans from the Lord,
who do their evil deeds in the dark!
“The Lord can’t see us,” they say.
“He doesn’t know what’s going on!”
For too long, we’ve been deceiving ourselves because we’ve self deceptively believe that the Lord isn’t there and that we’re safe to attend demonic services in the den of thieves (so called houses of worship) and in the synagogues of satan (worldly concert halls and arenas).
We have fake believers everywhere, just like when Phillip the deacon turned evangelist preached the Word, believers were made, and he got Peter and John to come down to minister the Holy Spirit to the new believers (see Acts 8:9-25).
The sorcerer believed and got baptized.
But when he saw how Peter and John ministered to the believers and they’ve received the Holy Spirit according to Acts 2:4, the sorcerer wanted this “power” to use the Holy Spirit to make money.
Peter knew right then that he wasn’t “saved.”
Still smoking dope, Snoop Dog has yet to bear fruit that he’s repented and have been converted.
Many of you will draw you own conclusions but your conclusions must be consistent with Scripture with no apologies.

Q: Upon reading one of your blogs, you specifically said that masturbation is the “door” to homosexuality. My question to you is, what is the basis for this seemingly absurd statement?
A: During a “Come Clean” men’s meeting, I invited Pastor Roger Jamison, pastor of Sword of the Spirit Tabernacle in Brooklyn NY, as a guest speaker. This was in 2009, if I remember correctly. The statement was profound. He said that “…masturbation is the door to homosexuality.”
Now, there is nothing specifically stated in the Bible that “masturbation is homosexuality.”
The inference based on preponderance of incidences and evidence is being used to make an arguable point. I am well aware that people will reject this argument. This is not to say that those that are into masturbation are homosexuals, but for argument’s sake, assume that if this is right, where do you want to go? Do you want to continue masturbating or do you want to be free?
I struggled with that statement because when it comes to normal sex, it takes two. A man and a woman, or in the case of homosexuality, two of the same sex acting out as if they are the opposite sex. So we all agree that normal sex is between one man and one woman in holy matrimony.
But when it comes to masturbation, it’s only you, whether male or female.
As I thought about it, you are a male pretending to have sex with a male or female, but you are touching yourself sexually.
With homosexuals, and this is about to get a little graphic, they masturbate each other.
How do I know?
While I was searching for porn, as always, they advertise all sorts of sex. There was a man on a couch, doing solo sex. I haven’t delved into “how to’s” of masturbation, but I know they exist.
While watching an interview of Ted Haggard, the former pastor of New Life Church in Colorado, he was asked a question about his homosexual affair and meth use. He stated that this man that he was with “masturbated him.”
So this is indisputably common.
Let’s look at this from the perspective of the fact that as a male, you are giving sexual stimulation to yourself. We know that there is more to masturbation when it comes to homosexuality. No need for the details, but foreplay is part of the sex act that leads to climax or ejaculation.
There will be many that will not accept this, and that is understandable. However, look at it just for a moment of you putting your hands sexually on you.
You are a male, or a female………right?
You are giving yourself sex……right?
So how can it not be homosexuality? Homosexuality is same sex activity. It takes two persons. This is a valid point and question. But you can also look at it that at the very least, these are the beginning stages of homosexuality.
When it comes to acting out sexually, and doing sex within the authorization of marriage according to the Bible, this is legal sex.
Illegal sex is when you are having sex with another man or another woman that is not your wife or husband. Illegal sex is when you are acting out sexually with the same sex. Sex was designed by God for two persons to become one flesh and to procreate, therefore any other sexual activity is not the intended design of sex authorized by God.
Can a wife stimulate (masturbate) her husband? Perfectly legal.
Can a husband stimulate (masturbate) his wife? Perfectly legal.
If acting out sexually by yourself is authorized for man or woman by God, then there wouldn’t be an issue with your conscience. Again, I want to remind you that after masturbation, the conscience is offended because of acting out sexually apart from God’s design of sexual activity between married persons, one male and one female.
Just ask yourself another question. Is someone masturbating you or are you masturbating you?
The one thing that we have to understand is that when it comes to Secret Sexual Sins, solo sex masturbation is very embarrassing. We do not want to discuss something that is highly taboo. And yes, people have made jokes about it, and use hand gestures to mean certain things, but we all know that masturbation is common solo sex.
Then the Holy Spirit reminded me of 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 that “….homosexuals (catamites) and……sodomites….will not inherit the kingdom of God.” Then in Revelation 21:8 that the “sexually immoral…will be cast into the lake which burns with fire and brimstone.”
I either had to be in denial and suppress the truth, or admit that I may be on the door of practicing homosexuality on myself.
What we have done with taboo subjects is avoid the issue and place our own permission on committing acts that are not permitted by God outside of the intended design. We’ve stretched the imagination and disqualify the conscience. But are we imposing our own law on others? What would be the governing factor here where there is no Scripture approving or disapproving masturbation?
Your conscience doesn’t condemn or shame you, and the fact that if Jesus masturbated. Then you have all the permission you need.
Then we act like some (not all) preachers and lawyers, and try our best to twist or deny the Word in hopes of continuing in sin that grace may abound (see Romans 6:1). We’ve yielded our members (penis or clitoris) as instruments of unrighteousness, slaves of sin, (see Romans 6:12-13) to continue in committing acts that violate your conscience and the heart of God.
Finally, when it comes to pleasing God, when you are masturbating, are you having sex in accordance with God’s design or are you circumventing and countermanding His design to fulfill selfish sexual needs?
Everything happens in cycles. Start, engage, disengage, restart.
Sadly, more believers are trapped in the cycle of lust than what we are willing to admit. Resulting in many trips to the altar to repent. Even when the prison door to your cell is open, men and women refuse to walk out and really be free of porn and masturbation.
But first, let’s look at some serious statistics.
According to one source….”95% of men admit to masturbating, compared to 89% of women. For married individuals, the rate is 70% for both men and women.”
Fewer married Christian men (61%) admit to masturbating, only 13% consider the practice NORMAL.”
More than 40% of males and 22% of females admit to masturbating daily. 55% of men and 48% of women masturbate at least once a week.”
As with any statistic, under reporting exists. We cannot “bump up” these numbers because we don’t know how many are not admitting to masturbating. Speculation destroys any chance at reaching the truth. Therefore, let’s just assume that these numbers are as close to correct as possible.
But what happens is that many of us are in remorse. There is a difference between remorse and repentance.
Remorse has a lot to do with being sorry that you got caught or the emotional pain of sinning again when you told the Lord that you would never do it again.
Working repentance is out of “godly sorrow….leading to salvation, not to be regretted.”
Working repentance declares that you are serious about stopping the cycle. You no longer want to walk in darkness while claiming to be a child of the light. This is hypocrisy.
“He that covers his sin shall not prosper but he that confess and forsake his sin shall obtain mercy.”
That’s Proverbs 28:13.
This is what we do when we cover our sin. Notice 1 John 1:6 from the NLT… “So we are lying if we say we have fellowship with God but go on living in spiritual darkness; we are not practicing the truth.”
We find ourselves suppressing the truth and we deceive ourselves to engage in the pleasures of sin for a season.
Why? After the “remorse,” the urges and impulses return and we do the same sin over and over again. This is what born again believers do everyday. Those that profess faith in Jesus, go to church, read their Bibles, sing praise and worship songs, etc.
After many episodes of feeling the pain of watching porn, you get to the point where you want to get rid of porn. However, you have to ask the question. “What is driving you to watch porn?”
It’s called fulfilling the desires of the flesh and the mind to engage in masturbation. Self sex. Solo sex. Mono sex.
Porn is an accelerant. Porn brings intensity to solo sex. But it won’t be long before you will act on the temptation to commit adultery, fornication, homosexuality, or become a whoremonger.
Millions of men and women go through this every day. But something happens after you experience the pain of remorse.
The reset button was hit to engage in more sexual gratification.
What will it take for me to break free?
Galatians 5:22 says “The fruit of the Spirit is………self control…”
When you are not under control, something or someone else is. Something or someone else is ruling your life. Something or someone else is your god and lord.
In the world and even among professed believers, many have fallen prey to the lie that “masturbation is healthy.”
According to several sources, studies “suggests” that masturbation prevents “prostate or cervical cancer.”
Really? Think about how dumb this is.
As I was deceiving myself with the false notion of justifying masturbation, these and other arguments circled my head because of my refusal to sever emotional ties to the pleasures of masturbation.
CNN did a study about prostate cancer. The men that were diagnosed with an aggressive form of prostate cancer were men that engaged in adultery. This is not to suggest in any way that masturbation is connected to prostate cancer. Neither should we assume that a suggestion gives a green light to masturbate to avoid or reduce the risk of prostate or cervical cancer.
Let’s get back to spiritual morals based on the Word of God.
It’s about self control or the lack thereof.
To escape the cycle of lust, a man or a woman that is a child of God must look to the sexual discipline of the Lord Jesus.
Paul articulated the kind of discipline that Jesus employed when He walked the earth.
Look at 1 Corinthians 9:27. “But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.”
While this is on the level for preachers, it is good for disciples too.
We need to discipline our bodies. In other words, we must tell our body not to engage in sexual immorality. It takes the help of the Holy Spirit to obey the Word of God to refrain from porn and masturbation. Just in the area of masturbation, it is a very tough habit to break and it takes constant vigilance to maintain your sanctification.
Preachers in particular are disqualified from ministering to people when we fail to maintain our sanctification.
The initial deliverance is met with jubilation. You believe that you are free. Everyone is excited but what happens afterwards is the moment of truth.
You are by yourself. You get the feeling that the urges and impulses are returning. You are on the Internet. Or you are walking the street and a hot looking woman or man walks by you. You take a peak, a glance, a stare. The magazine stand has a smoking hot body and you “check it out.”
The image is fixated in your mind. You meditate on it. And next thing you know, your flesh craves for what it had a day or two ago.
The moment of truth always comes at just the right moment when you thought you had it all together.
It is there that the Lord is with you according to 1 Corinthians 10:13.
“No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.”
God will not allow that temptation to overcome your will to resist.
2 Corinthians 12:9 says “And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”
The Living Bible says “My grace shows up best in weak people.”
It is when you are weak that the moment of truth comes. But that’s the moment where His grace shows up strong. It is now left to you to accept this grace and overcome, or yield to temptation and be overcome.
James 4:7 says “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”
Successful resistance comes out of willful submission to God.
1 Peter 5:8-9 says, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.”
You must remain sober and vigilant at all times. Do not let your guard down for one split second.
This is what Jesus did and this is what Paul did.
They constantly kept a watch on their lives by submitting to the Lord in prayer and the Word of God. Jesus need to submit to His own Word. It is amazing that the Word submitted to His own Word.
This is how we end the cycle of lust for porn and masturbation. We constantly keep a watch on our spirit, soul, and body.
Proverbs 4:23 says, “Keep your hear with all diligence for out of it (your heart) flows the issues of life.”
Psalm 119:9-10 says, “How shall a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your Word. With my whole heart I have sought You; Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments! You Word have I hidden in my heart that I might not sin against You.”
Joshua 1:8 says “This book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth but you shall meditate in it day and night that you may observe to do according to all that is written therein, for then you shall make your way prosperous and then you shall have good success.”
Guarding your heart is a day and night job. Paul said in Ephesians 4:27 “Neither give place to the devil.”
We close off all avenues where he once had access. Then we place a watch to prevent the enemy from returning.
2 Corinthians 10:4-5 says “For the weapons of our warfare are mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds, casting down imaginations (reasonings) and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.”
There is an interesting post that says that while we were paying attention to Bruce Jenner, other issues took place under our noses. Well, I know that millions of other things took place that we weren’t aware of that may or may not be detrimental to this country, but we all know that the subject of transgenderism is at the forefront.
Again, I want to remind you that transgenderism is the last stop of the ride regarding the vile sin of homosexuality.
Also, while the president put out the proclamation that June is LGBT month and the Supreme Court is about to release it’s ruling on June 18, 2015, this nation is in the balance.
While reading Dr. Michael Brown’s thoughts there was also a good writeup about Transgenderism that indicate facts that it is impossible for a man to become a woman and a woman to become a man.
Masculinity and feminism is at the heart of the issue of transgenderism.
It’s complicated but when you read this article, a better understanding is given.
Also, in this article, suicide rates increase for a few of those that reach the end of the line of transgenderism.
When there is no gold at the end of the rainbow, so to speak, those demons are taking you to the end of the line of life. There is no more to look forward to and they try to push you to end it all.
Plus, with the government and states attempting to cut off ways to help people recover from their lost quest to re-identify themselves, it puts an additional pressure of hopelessness on these people. They have been seeking help and they are being cut off from the right kind of help.
Cutting of conversion therapy is just a gag order on the power of the gospel.
As Paul said, “The Word of God is not chained.”
So when you read this article, let’s understand that Bruce, and many others are crying out for help.
We see them in the burning building and we must defy their laws to be there to help them with the power of the gospel.
God’s grace abounds more.

I made a comment a few days ago that gives us the best possible picture of perfect porn.
All sin looks like puke on the sidewalk on a hot sunny day with flies on it. But I’ll add……but dogs lick it all up like a fresh meal out of a can of dog food.
“As a dog returns to his own vomit, so a fool repeats his folly.”
But to those that were delivered and then they backslide…..
2 Peter 2:20-22
“For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning.
For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them. But it has happened to them according to the true proverb: “A dog returns to his own vomit,” and, “a sow, having washed, to her wallowing in the mire.”
That’s why Revelation 22:15 says
“But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.”
Note that “dogs” was used which is defined in the Greek as “a man with an impure mind.”
Dog is translated and defined as the same word in 2 Peter 2:22 and Revelation 22:15.
So dogs are outside where?
Look at Matthew 22:13.
“Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’
In the lake that burns with fire and brimstone.
Men that continue to watch porn and masturbate is just like the dogs that return to its vomit.
But this will not serve as a deterrent for the majority of the 2.8 billion daily viewers.
Faithfully, they return to their porn.
They do not see it from God’s perspective that sin is ugly, dirty, nasty, and it stinks.
Years ago, and I’ve since renounced any ties to being a “shellback,” in the Navy, there is a tradition that when you cross the equator, you are a polliwog. I won’t get into the details. But one of the initiation rights to become a shellback is that you had to be locked up in Davy Jones’ locker.
Inside the locker would be three day old food, kept on the fantail (back or stern) of the ship in the heat.
Then the three day old food, with maggots, were dumped into that old locker. The polliwog would be placed in the locker that was laid on its side and then they had to turn or roll in the locker filled with fresh decaying food until the shellbacks are satisfied that you were “cleansed.“
And yes, there would be puke in that locker even after hundreds of polliwogs went before you.
I know, very gross.
But it’s the same with sin.
Why don’t we have this visualization of sin? It’s because of the pleasures associated with sin.
We refuse to realize that sin is destructive and foul.
We do not realize that we are rolling around in the filth of sin regularly.
In fact, Hebrews 12:4 tells us that “Marriage is honorable among all and the bed undefiled…..”
Undefiled means “unsoiled.”
We all know that if you made on yourself, it’s nasty.
But when you commit sexual immorality, your bed is defiled. In other words, your bed has human waste and the two of you are rolling around in human feces.
Spiritually speaking of course.
You should be.
It should now serve as a reminder to you how you and I stink before God when we sin.
Each and every day we fall into this sin, we stink before God.
The wonderful thing about the Lord is that He doesn’t mind putting His hand on us to clean us up. That’s when we have had enough of porn and masturbation. Like the prodigal son, the Lord always looks up that ol’ dusty road to see if we would return home.
Sure enough, the Lord sees us and He runs towards us. He doesn’t pay attention to the filth of the world that is upon our lives. He hugs us and He kisses us. He kills the fatted calf. He gets the ring and the robe and places it on your finger and body. He returns you to sonship after being a slave in bondage.
The perfect image of perfect porn is nothing less than a dog’s vomit sitting on the sidewalk in the noonday sun with flies on it.
It’s time to pass up that “pig slop.” You know. That’s what the prodigal son wanted to eat because he was hungry.
But the son remembered that there was bread at home that the servants were privileged to eat.
The wasteful, prodigal son came to himself and devised a plan to repent to his father and just ask to be a servant.
But the father had better plans.
His father would restore him to his rightful place. Even after spending all of his inheritance on partying and prostitutes.
His father would restore his son as if nothing happened.
True repentance always leads to righteous restoration
His father would kiss him, no matter how much dirt was on his face.
So our heavenly Father would do the same for us.
We may have vomit on our face. But the Father will kiss you anyway.
When you have had enough of the lies of perfect porn, you throw away those lies, walk away from that vomit on the side walk and be restored to a place of victory and sonship over sin.
The Bread of Life is better than vomit any day of the week.
Racism and bigotry during the Civil Rights movement was a regular thing among my predecessors. They endured much pain and hardship.
My first pastor, the late Reverend Dr. Benjamin James Lowry marched with the late Dr. Martin Luther King and was also arrested.
While I was too young to understand racism, being a little younger than the children of MLK, I fully understood it while in the Navy and even reverse racism or black on black racism.
Please take a look at this article and then come back.
It is very easy for me, as an African American, to get upset about the negative actions of a lone white homosexual male in response to a peaceful protest against same sex marriage.
LGBT would love to read about any Christian spewing venom on their level. But having been born again, it’s not in my new nature in Christ to bust a vein. Most of my predecessors didn’t and neither should I act ill about this. Neither should any of my fellow African Americans.
What we are to do is speak the truth in love. Truth never asked to be like. Truth asks to be told like it is.
TRUTH: It is nothing new to speak of our outrage that the sin of homosexuality was lump summed into Civil Rights. Pushing African Americans aside to bring to the forefront the sin of homosexuality.
On the backs of Blacks, they have found another way to suppress the true essence of Civil Rights. Sadly, African Americans that do not know better have accepted this lie. Sadly, it underscores the measure of ignorance in their minds. A clear refusal to intelligently look at the purpose of Civil Rights.
As even more profound is that some of the alleged African American leadership accepted this lie. Including the NAACP, an out of touch organization that is clearly disorganized. And as crazy as it sounds, it seems to me that they believe every word of LGBT’s lies.
Civil Rights was and always will be about race, not sex.
People can look at my skin and I do not have a closet to run to and hide my skin color. But sexual immorality needs a closet. Homosexuality needs a closet. The shame of acting on the lusts of the flesh in “vile passions” is abhorring, disgusting, sinful, and it is an abomination.
To hide the shame, the closet is the only place to hide should one desire to continue in sin. But you can come out. But the purpose of hijacking the Civil Rights Movement is to mask the sin of homosexuality by any means necessary.
It is the continued tactic of LGBT. They are counting on certain African Americans to remain silent and let it go. But for years, African Americans have been suppressed and oppressed.
No longer silent, the counterattack against all sexual immorality is underway.
To normalize homosexuality is the ongoing agenda.
They have chosen two platforms.
Legislation and Civil Rights.
For this to be successful, the church, the “pillar and ground of the truth,” must be silenced, overtly and covertly infiltrated, compromised, persecuted, harassed, and intimidated.
The church, according to LGBT proponents, must be redefined as an out of touch, intolerant group of people, bent on infringing the basic rights of the citizens of America.
As far as this is concerned, according to the constitution of the United States, no one special group should jump to the head of the line. But the LGBT agenda is designed to do just that and on the backs of African Americans. The very ones that only ask for a level playing field as humans.
Africans did not come by choice.
Africans came by way of chains; forced labor.
Could it be possible that the children of Niniveh served as a precursor of the events of African America slavery?
Check out this passage of Scripture in Nahum 3, verses 8 through 10….
“Are you (Niniveh) better than No Amon that was situated by the River, that had the waters around her, whose rampart was the sea, whose wall was the sea? Ethiopia and Egypt were her strength, and it was boundless; Put and Lubim were your (Niniveh’s) helpers. Yet she was carried away, she went into captivity; her young children also were dashed to pieces at the head of every street; they cast lots for her honorable men, and all her great men were bound in chains.”
Take note of Ethiopia and Egypt, Put and Lubim. These are descendants of Ham, Noah’s middle son. Ham means black. No, do not let the word Egypt throw you. It is Mizraim. As a side note, the Philistines are descendants of Mizraim (see Genesis 10).
Back to Nahum, the people of Niniveh were carried away in chains but the mention of these Black nations gives tremendous prophetic evidence of what was to come on the shores of Jamestown in the 1500’s.
Discrimination was a term brought about to define human suppression and oppression of one race against another. Discrimination was designed to define one race of people as greater than another by imposing rules (Jim Crow laws).
Segregation is the tool of choice to enforce race oppression and suppression. Superiority of another race was the obvious goal. But what has happened is that this form of racism has now shifted to the sin of homosexuality called “Conversion of Perversion.”
If the sin of homosexuality could be called “hate” then the sin of homosexuality could be converted into being called discrimination. And therefore, it is no longer the sin of homosexuality. It’s the normalization or acceptance of perversion. Even the word perversion is discriminating and is deemed as hate language.
But the goal is also to segregate the church. The righteousness of God must be sequestered. The righteousness of God in Christ must be deemed as a discriminatory organization. Just like Whites oppressing Blacks is discriminatory.
In essence, White people are using the language of Civil Rights like Black people. They are using Civil Rights language to segregate Black people in the church. Yes, it’s both sides of the fence. Racism and discrimination when it suits their sins. Calling righteous people discriminating and intolerant but they use discriminatory terms against Black people.
It’s also called “sexual orientation”and anyone that calls a sexual orientation of the sin of homosexuality a sin, is a bigot.
But wait a minute.
We thought that bigotry is about racism.
No. It is now inclusive of sexual immorality. But it’s not called sexual immorality. It’s converted into sexual orientation. The hijacking is complete. The convolution is complete. Now it is a law and the march towards federalizing the sin of homosexuality inches closer.
But states have fought against the federalization of the sin of homosexuality with tremendous success. 32 states have successfully pushed back and we are now seeing LGBT operating at a breakneck pace to hold the line, and to keep pushing for normalization of an abomination.
So when they see signs that unashamedly advocate marriage between one man and one woman, instead of getting over it, they are attacking people that stand for the truth. LGBT is trying to tell us to get over it but the odds are against them in more ways than they could ever imagine.
Remember, LGBT people only make up 4% of the American population and they intend to make gains to increase this number but it is very hard to do because if they had the ability to procreate, then they would be successful. But they have to use other means and it is not as successful as some would have you to think.
When it comes to some misguided African Americans, they refuse the truth, and believe the lie. And there is very little that you can do to persuade them. Sadly, my people remain ignorant by choice.
We didn’t ask for our skin color. We were born with this heritage. But sin is a choice. Sin is a preference based on urges and impulses.
As the Lord was teaching me about sexuality, He asked me a question.
“What is the ultimate goal of sex.”
I got “revelatory” on the Holy Spirit. Sometimes, it’s not a smart thing to do.
I answered, “It’s about procreation and connection.”
He said to me, “Right. But what is it that you really want out of sex?”
A good orgasm.
Getting off is the same. It is just the way or preference of achieving orgasm that makes sex sex.
When it comes to sin, the pleasures of sin is the driving force behind fighting against righteousness. God never said that you can’t have sex, except that He requires that for you to have sex, you need to be husband and wife. This is within His ordinance recorded in Genesis 2:24 where sex is authorized.
Sexual immorality is the perversion sex and all sexual immorality is about having sex your way. In utter perversion. Achieving the orgasm remains the same.
The only difference is the preference by CHOICE!
The convicting power of her signs hit this man and this attack by this white man was a deliberate, unprovoked attack on a pregnant African American female.
I condemn this act of violence and bigotry in the name of Jesus.
The only remedy for sin is the precious blood of Jesus. The cross of Christ where our sins were nailed. There is no other remedy and there is no other way of escape from sin and it’s consequences.
Repentance is commanded of every sinner, regardless of preference. Otherwise, “the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23.
There is no question that the large part of those in LGBT want to keep to themselves because it is a further revelation of the true concept of what is the driving force behind their cause.
Some LGBT people have made this clear, but when it comes to addressing this issue, the church has no choice but to vehemently confront and condemn the intentional hijacking of the Civil Rights Movement to redefine marriage. The church must vehemently condemn the sin of homosexuality because the God of the Bible calls this sin “an abomination.”
While it is underscored by the HIV/AIDS virus and centuries ago, by the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, the sin of homosexuality is an abomination, both sides must be restrained in their emotions.
There is extremism on both sides that need to be reigned in.
The church and LGBT has crossed the lines before in the area of extremism to bolster their positions for and against gay marriage. But we all know that the moral conscience is aware that when a person sins any sin, the conscience of man, the voice of the human spirit, will either be suppressed or convicted.
In the case of this white man, his emotions got the best of him. Passionate about keeping his sin, he was convicted. The conviction turned into rage and it could have easily escalated to the next level.
A physical assault.
In the Book of Acts, Stephen, in chapter 7, gave a power presentation and finished his discourse by calling the Jews, “Stiffed neck and uncircumcised in heart.” Their fathers resisted the Holy Spirit and they resisted in the same manner. This caused a commotion. In rage, they attacked Stephen. They sinked their teeth in to him, and stoned him. This rage reminds me of the fight between Holyfield and Tyson when Tyson bit a piece of the ear of Holyfield.
It’s also called gnashing of teeth.
It’s a behavior of rage that blinds a person of all reasoning. Usually, it’s after it’s all over that they sit there and ask themselves what have they done.
As far as EX Ministries is concerned, an attempt was made to hack into their FB page. It appears that when the church speaks truth, LGBT resort to tactics to suppress the truth just like Paul said in Romans chapter one. EX Ministries as with GCMWatch and other powerful blogs are hitting the world with truth.
It is affecting, not only the world, but the minds of saints that do not have a clue as to the eternal ramifications of sin in the world and in the church.
Truth hurts, but truth must be told regardless of who gets hurt. The purpose of hurting truth is to compel you to repent. Otherwise, truth is still marching on……….towards you.
Instead of letting the truth stand, they attack the truth to justify the sin of homosexuality. And it would be a crying shame if it weren’t so pathetic.
But that’s what the Word does. That’s what the Holy Spirit does according to what the Lord Jesus said in John 16:8-11. Either LGBT proponents will attack to suppress, or they will repent because of conviction of the heart that homosexuality is a sin.
We must remember that when people act with malicious intent, they appear as immature. They will do everything as little children because to them, attacking the truth is a game. But when it comes to truth, in this life, it is a deposition before trial. When they stand before the judgment seat, called the Great White Throne, there will be no games. There will be no deals. There will be no defense for the wicked.
EX Ministries, we stand with you in the fight to put truth out in hopes that people would catch themselves before they fall into the lake of fire and brimstone, the smoke of their torment ascending forever. As the Lord said, He takes no pleasure int he death of the wicked.
And neither should we.
Earlier in the week many of us has seen information regarding the possible capitulation of Chick Fil A. That there were back room negotiations. That Chick Fil A caved in to LGBT demands in connection with building more Chick Fil A restaurants in Chicago if Chick Fil A concede to the following demands, such as they are to no longer donate to organizations that are anti gay.
Governor Mike Huckabee, as you know, encouraged many believers to go and support Chick Fil A for standing up to the pressures of the LGBT community after Mr. Dan Cathy stated his unequivocal support for traditional family values that are Bible based, that marriage is between one man and one woman.
The Chick Fil A Appreciation Day was far beyond successful.
It was a defining moment in American history.
And it is worthy to mention that no other franchise made 18 million plus dollars in one day, in a downturn economy.
This one day validated free speech, but more importantly, the right to speak and represent the Lord, the Word of God, and traditional marriage, in accordance with Genesis 2:24.
For the most part, it appears that many in the LGBT community vehemently disagreed and the political henchmen went as far as to say that they would block any attempt of Chick Fil A to expand their business because Chick Fil A stood against LGBT’s poisonous sin.
Believers and non believers, all across the United States gathered peacefully. Not to protest. Just to support a man who stuck by Biblical principles and values.
We thought that there was a major capitulation on Chick Fil A’s part. Here is what we’ve learned from the FB post of Governor Mike Huckabee….
“I talked earlier today personally with Dan Cathy, CEO of Chick Fil-A about the new reports that Chick Fil-A had capitulated to demands of the supporters of same sex marriage. This is not true. The company continues to focus on the fair treatment of all of its customers and employees, but to end confusion gave me this statement:
“There continues to be erroneous implications in the media that Chick-fil-A changed our practices and priorities in order to obtain permission for a new restaurant in Chicago. That is incorrect. Chick-fil-A made no such concessions, and we remain true to who we are and who we have been.”
From the onset, having learned a lesson, you wait until it plays itself out. But I was still confused. You see, David went by the brook and got five smooth stones. But David only used one with tremendous results. Then a little while later, in 2 Samuel 21, Goliath’s sons came up. Four.
One thing about giants and fighting. You must finish the job that you started. The four sons of Goliath were killed by David’s skilled fighting men. At this time, Goliath’s four sons are showing up and it is time for the church to finish the job.
I was taken aback by the fact that why capitulate so soon after a resounding victory.
But the statement above is encouraging.
So, someone is lying.
The Bible tells us that the devil is a liar and the father of lies; that there is no truth in him.
The Bible also says, “Let God be true and every man a liar.”
So, Jesus also said that “You are of your father, the devil…”
So if you are not a born again child of God, and when you talk, it’s not going to be the truth. It’s going to be lies.
Is Mr. Cathy a child of the devil or a child of God?
Based on what we have heard and have seen, he is a child of God and speaks the truth.
There is no reason for Mr. Cathy to turn his back on the God he professes to serve. And there is no reason for him to walk away from the statement of honoring traditional family values and traditional marriage. What is there to gain? A couple of stores in Chicago? For what? And deny the true God?
What is the eternal trade off?
Heaven and Hell.
We are living in an apostate time where believers are walking away from the Lord at record pace. And for Mr. Cathy to capitulate, we wouldn’t have been surprised because of the intimidation of the enemy. However, Mr. Cathy’s statement is encouraging but we also need to watch this for a little while to ensure that it sticks.
This presidential election is more than just what will happen in the next four years. It is about who you are serving.
A vote, in either direction, for either candidate is a revelation of the God or god you serve. And sadly, evangelicals and other Christians, God loves them, they will vote for a baby killing, sin of homosexuality affirming president.
You better be.
We must start honoring the Word of God according to righteousness.
Why be against God and for sin? Are you mad? Have you lost your ever living mind?
It’s like watching a movie again and you are told to run….
We all know you may not be smart enough to run, so we might as well watch you get crushed.
With Mitt Romney, he is a Mormon.
Mormons by definition is a cult and not a part of main stream Christianity.
And sadly as well as pathetically, evangelicals are blind enough to put aside the stand on the Word of God for political purposes.
For the first time in Presidential elections, a protestant will not be on either ticket.
So the news of caving in was rather shocking, to say the least.
And that’s why we were so shocked. People that run from the Lord and His Word are cowards. You have to learn to make a stand when it’s unpopular to do so for fear of ridicule from the world.
If Mr. Cathy capitulated, then we need to sever ties and move on, and not look back and become a pillar of salt.
With opponents that hate God, the Word of God, and believers in Christ, it is expected for them to lie, cheat, steal, misquote, abuse Scripture, manipulate the law, persecute, perjure, kill, murder, slander, intimidate with schoolyard bully tactics, and create any sort of distortion to perpetuate and advance the sin of homosexuality.
Every bully has a bully waiting.
Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed with fire and brimstone, rained down from heaven.
The Bible tells us in Revelation 21:8….
“But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolators, and ALL LIARS shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone (the same substance used to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah), which is the second death.”
So whoever is the liar, will have their part.
We will continue to watch for any late breaking developments.
“I wrote to you in my epistle not to keep company with sexually immoral people. Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner—not even to eat with such a person.”
This is what Paul shared in 1 Corinthians 5:9-11.
He was serious about it.
If you go back up into verses 1 through 8, there was a man that committed incest with his mother. Whether it was his actual mother or step mother, we really do not know. But Paul said that this kind of sin was not even a part of the Gentile culture.
Evidently, these Corinthian believers were Jewish.
What was Paul’s point in not keeping company with brothers that openly sin sexually?
Isolation to bring them all to shame.
Now Paul is not advocating that we do not witness to sexually immoral people in the world.
He is advocating that we do not “keep company” with people that call themselves brothers (children of God) that live openly in sexual immorality.
You cannot call yourself a child of God and live in open sin. Either you are a child of God or you are a child of the devil. And it makes no sense going to church or social events to “mix it up” to make it appear that you are in good with God by way of association with other bona fide saints.
You are intentionally using their righteousness for cover as well as for an endorsement for your sinful lifestyle.
The Greek word for “company” is “sunanamignumi” which is a compound word that means, “to mix up together, i.e. (figuratively), associate with.”
So here you are. BBQing. You have saints and sinners. Do you walk out and be rude to the hosts and guests, or do you “mix up together?”
Well, the Bible is clear about it.
1 Corinthians 15:33 KJV says,
“Be not deceived: evil communication corrupt good manners.”
You know you have people that call themselves children of God and practice sexual immorality coming to socialize with you, and you “mix it up together” with them as if they had not sinned. Or that you choose not to contest or protest their open sin.
Your presence is endorsing their sinful behavior.
We good? Right?
Such was the case with the Corinthian believers. Now, we are not talking about a church service where the preaching of the Word goes forth and everyone is invited to attend. We are talking about these “love feasts” also known as social gatherings where people are invited to sit and talk about things. An innocent time of fellowshipping.
It’s one thing to invite folks to help people spiritually. Sort of like a fellowship or impromptu Bible sharing and studying, but when you associate with folk that desire to sin in front of the entire group and they do not intend to change, sometimes, not all of the time, the devil will use them to sneer at the God you serve and challenge you to change your walk in the Lord.
We are not talking about avoiding open discussion and dialogue about issues regarding sin. Besides, such dialogue and discussion should end with a clear agreement about the Scriptures stand against sin. When the dialogue and discussion avoids the authority of the Scriptures, it’s time to part ways.
When people are entrenched in their sinful positions and they refuse to relinquish their hold on sin, it makes no sense continuing. As Jesus said, if they do not receive you, shake off the dust from your feet, and go to the next town. It’s the same with dialoguing with unbelievers and carnal believers. When they are entrenched in their sin, as your are led by the Spirit of God, walk away when they they do not agree with the Word of God.
There are those that inquire about the Word of God and want answers.
Sometimes your Biblically sound answers will never be good enough because of their intent to remain in sin. That’s because they do not want to change. They will be thorns and thistles in your side. At first, they appear to be inquisitive about the Word and then they unloose a barrage of demonic laced words that broadside you into bewilderment.
This is the tolerant spirit of the day where people are offended when you do not accept their sin because since they are so connected to the sin that they love to do, that they take it personally when you disrespect their sin.
They call you “intolerant, bigots, and discriminant.”
Many will even challenge you, toe to toe.
And they do not have to say a word. They may be in same sex relations and bring their “partner.” They may be fornicators, and may bring their unmarried girl or boyfriend. They may be bisexual and bring boy and girlfriend.
Well, heaven is an exclusive place and membership has its privilege.
Jesus said, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God,” and “…unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.”
Try to go to a major league baseball game without a ticket. You will not get far. Try going to a concert without a ticket. You will not get far.
Yet, people want to get past Jesus to get into heaven (see Matthew 7:21-23).
The authority of the Word of God gives the child of God the right to stand against sin and those that insist on sinning. God is the Author of the Word of God. When His Word is challenged, His authority is challenged. Hence, your authority in Christ is challenged.
So the only way the world wants to do away with the authority of the Scriptures is to either make up laws that silence true believers or infiltrate the true church with false doctrine, or worse, bring sin into the church of Jesus Christ like the Moabites brought sexual immorality to the Israelites in Numbers chapters 19 through 25.
The children of Israel were told to destroy them all because the land was polluted with their sins. They failed and Israel suffers to this day.
So it is with the church when we do not get the leaven (sin) out. If we tolerate the slightest hint of sin, our hearts are not perfect towards God. We must be aggressive about sin and remain aggressive about sin, no matter the cost. People will hate and sneer at us. They will create trouble to harass the saints just like Sanballat and his evil company did when the Israelites came from their 70 year captivity to rebuild the wall and temple.
The ones that bring their sin unchallenged will only be successful if we fail to be strict about handling sin. The only way to handle sin is through the blood of Jesus. To be washed, cleansed, and forsake sin, never to commit sexual immorality again.
Perfection is not the goal. Perfect hatred for the thing that God hates is the goal. If you look back like Lot’s wife did when destruction fell on the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, you will turn into a pillar of salt.
Friends will be lost. Families will be lost. You might not be liked any more, but the friendship of the world is hostile towards God, those that walk in the flesh are hostile towards God.
I mean, they become mean and nasty anytime you talk about the Word of God. Even folk in the church. They become enemies of God and oppose everything that you say about the Word of God. Just mark them and stay away from them. Let the Holy Sprit work them over. Let the Word dwell in you richly, walk in love and be patient.
Sadly, they personally stand against you because they can’t get to God.
And even if they could, the angels in heaven preventing you from getting to the Lord would be an act of mercy because anything past the angels and there is no guarantee that you will live.
So, be mindful of the fact that when you are invited to certain places (and you know that there will be people that openly live in sin), will you “mix it up,” or will you keep yourself?
