Back in 2008, by the grace of God, the Word of the Lord came to me. The Holy Spirit spoke to me while in the middle of watching porn and masturbating these Words.
“Is this what you do to Me after all the good I’ve done for you?”
It was then that I was done with porn.
I was going to make this short but that is not the case.
I searched for help on the Internet and came across many sites. Pastor Roger Jamison, pastor of Sword of the Spirit Tabernacle in Brooklyn, NY steered me to some sites where I could get additional help on porn addiction.
“The Pink Cross Foundation” headed by former porn star Shelley Lubben was not one of those sites, but I happened upon that site and it gave me additional information about what went on behind the set of porn shoots.
She testified before Congress and other places about her participation in the porn industry. She shared passionately about women being abused sexually and really laid it on the table what was done behind the scenes of pornography. It was clear in my mind that she struck a cord with many about the things done on the set.
As some of you know, women would travel miles to California to star in movies. When they do not make it, some of them resort to class B movies, porn, strip clubs, escort services, and prostitution to make money and some how get noticed. But to no avail, many of them get trapped in doing porn and never make it.
I understand that porn is a very dangerous, dirty place where drugs and alcohol would be available on the set to help the women cope with the rape and abuse that men and other women would do to unsuspecting aspiring actresses. Some of them never make it past the first day because the abuse would be devastating, and they would never return. To make things worse, there would always be the fear of contracting STDs, including HIV/AIDS. A few have even committed suicide because the shame, stigmatization, being diagnosed with STDs, loneliness, hopelessness, and other emotionally traumatic events would be too much for them to bear.
The Pink Cross Foundation is a site that attempts to reveal what really goes on in porn, however, as helpful as some of the information is, some of the pictures and stories are a bit over the top.
In other words, the pictures displayed on The Pink Cross Foundation are racy.
Even I had to refrain from looking at that site because it is sexually provocative and obviously explicit.
This is not to say that these stories are not true, or juiced up to gain more attention. It is to say that when a man goes to this, or similar sites, it’s almost like looking at porn all over again. Many will argue that it’s not the site that’s the problem. It’s the man with unbridled lust in his heart and mind.
That’s partly true and many will disagree, but the problem is twofold.
ONE: According to Dr. William Struthers “porn hijacks the brain.”
He shared that when a man looks at porn and masturbates, he is pretending to have sex with the person. While a man doesn’t need porn to masturbate, his mind goes through a ritual of search and discovery, meditation or fantasy, and then he engages. Sometimes one picture could set him into search mode and then he “locks in” on what he wants sexually, to act out sexually.
The photos on The Pink Cross Foundation could be one of these pictures that would set a man off sexually. Just like a supermarket magazine stand. A woman on a street corner, a movie with soft porn sex scenes, a man could be sexually influenced to pursue porn and masturbation.
Porn is the fuel or accelerant of the sexual immorality world. No man watches porn and doesn’t act out sexually in masturbation, adultery, fornication, bisexuality, or homosexuality.
The lust in a man’s heart is what must be addressed. It is addressed on the cross. Jesus died for our sins to set us free from sin but also to appease the wrath of God. The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all unrighteousness. Jesus paid that penalty because God pour upon Jesus, His wrath.
Therefore, because of Jesus, when we repent and turn from our wicked ways, we, by the help of the Holy Spirit are capable of walking in obedience to the Word of God to abstain from the very appearance of evil.
The power and guilt of sin was removed. In the presence of sin, we walk in obedience to His Word to never let sin have dominion over us. It’s a work of His grace not to continue in sin, but to live free of it.
It is true that man needs to be more disciplined to ignore what a woman is wearing, however, some women wear certain clothing to be sexually noticed. Sexually immoral women will make a calculated maneuver to attract male attention.
That one moment of flirt, to her, is her power over man.
I’ve said all this to agree with EX Ministries that “The Pink Cross Foundation’s intent, yet, as long as the gospel is absent, is undoubtedly involved in the transmission of sexually provocative material.
Please observe this YouTube for consideration.
TWO: When we were involved in porn, we men would sometimes read “Forum,” “Hustler,” “Playboy,” and other sexually explicit reading material. There would be racy stories that would get our “engines” running. There is some material that lead men back into the world of porn. For those of us that were delivered, we are on the lookout for anything that would tease us to go back and “investigate.”
Even on FB, there are female pictures that stimulates the minds of men to investigate.
The face, the hair, the clothing, the position, the smile.
Men are easily seduced. On FB or other social medias, all it takes is a captivating look and a man is easily swayed to look lustfully at a woman.
“Hell and destruction are never full, so the eyes of a man are never satisfied.” Proverbs 27:20
Any website that uncovers the underworld of porn that is absent of the gospel of Jesus Christ is just another substitute porn site.
It is a very strong statement but here is the reason.
“…the gospel of Christ…..is the power of God unto salvation….”
This is the cut up version of Romans 1:16.
Women that explain the dangers, perils, documented stories of the sufferings of women in porn are to be commended, however, when it fails to point people back to the cross of Christ, it is very troubling.
EX Ministries with G. Craige Lewis and Tetaun Moffett has done a remarkable job in pointing out the fact that the gospel of Jesus Christ is central to a man’s deliverance. And that this gospel is absent from The Pink Cross Foundation. I fully understand that the intent of The Pink Cross Foundation is to reveal the dark side of porn so that men and women that deliberately watch porn would be shocked to the degree that we would never watch another women get harmed. However, the gospel must be at the top of the list. Man is incapable of delivering man from sin. If we were capable, the death of Jesus wouldn’t have been necessary.
We all know that women are victims.
Then again, there are some that do not know.
We get it.
However, when we point to ourselves without pointing to Jesus, we make things complicated. Complicated?
We say that they are doing a good work of exposing the dark works, but do we do an equally good job at pointing to the Only One that can fully and completely deliver? The Scriptures tell us that “He saves to the uttermost.”
I also understand that it takes courage beyond courage to address sexual immorality, but we must point to the Savior to ensure that He gets the full credit and not make it about ourselves.
Years ago, I tried to do the same thing. I made “Come Clean” about ME and MY deliverance and it failed miserably. I was selfish!
I wanted disciples to follow me.
God has no rivals. He alone saves. He alone gets ALL the glory.
Yes, God uses us but we turn it all to God and keep none for ourselves.
God had to destroy the work of my hands so that the work of His hands would emerge. Anything that man does, apart from the Lord, is a work that must be destroyed because God is God, and no one shares His glory. He has no rivals. Every rival failed, and every rival must fail.
At the same time or more so, what must be paramount is a pointing back to the gospel as the “…power of God unto salvation.”
Without the power of God to save, deliver, and set free men and women that are held captive, we invite men to return to the vomit from whence they came.
Having said this, I would strongly urge a change in our approach to deal with porn.
1. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the only way to deal with sin.
While it is important to sound the alarm about women as victims, when the gospel is absent, deliverance must be absent. God’s terms isn’t negotiable.
2. Throw away the gimmicks of men.
Men are deliberately evasive.
Paul said, “And my speech and my preaching were without enticing words of men’s wisdom…” and “We have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully.”
The world and some church circles loves its gimmicks.
EX Ministries mentioned “Porn and Pancakes.” The subject of porn is a very avoidable subject when it comes to men. I know that men will not come to a meeting when it’s just about porn. Pancakes is a gimmick. But at the end of the day, will it be pancakes that deliver, or the power of the gospel as a person repents? While the Bible has a history of God using items to attract men, (burning bush – Jesus and divine healing, casting out devils, etc.), ultimately, we must understand that the Spirit of God always speaks before God uses an item to attract.
When Jesus preached His first major address, He didn’t have pancakes.
“But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”
There were no pancakes served that day.
Jesus pointed out the origin of porn. Lust in a man’s heart.
But we do not need to use gimmicks to try to pull men to talk about this subject.
Just the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Tetaun Moffett, co host of EXTV with G. Craige Lewis put out a YouTube video of a radio interview that were discussing this issue about a 26 year old pastor who went to a rap concert featuring Rick Ross.
Pastor Rodney Wills, according to various news reports, was the youngest preacher to ever pastor the 109 year old, Mt. Salem Baptist Church, in North Carolina.
Prior to his installment as pastor, he was preaching there for about 4 years.
Mind you that there were many young preachers that started out pastoring a church in their teen years. Looking at the ministry of Jesus, His ministry started at the age of 30 and in three years, His earthly ministry impacted thousands, if not millions of lives just in the land of Israel alone. I am not saying that everyone should start at thirty, however, we see that maturity goes a long ways.
In Biblical hermeneutics, in particular, Biblical numerology, 30 is the number of maturity. Levites weren’t allowed to enter into service until the age of 30. They were forced into retirement at the age of 50, serving only 20 years. So maturity goes a long ways.
Paul warned Timothy “To flee youthful lusts.”
Evidently, young preachers today didn’t get that memo.
According to news reports, Deacon Miles Langley said, “We cannot have our leader supporting people of this world who are tearing down the kingdom of God.”
Pastor Rodney Wills was warned nine months earlier about attending a Lil’ Wayne concert.
Deacon Langley also said “We cannot have a pastor praising the world one minute then praising the Lord the next. Period.”
The radio show host, John A Young and Kevin Swann on WHOV 88.1 of Hampton Roads, aired their show in an apparent defense of Pastor Wills. They said some things that brought into question their relationship with the Lord, if there is any relationship with the Lord in their lives in the first place. It seems to me that these young preachers and immature preachers and believers will not take the Bible and the times we are living in very seriously.
These radio hosts took a page out of the defense attorney’s book.
Put the evidence on trial.
The show hosts kept going around in circles about whether it was right to fire this pastor or whether the deacon went through proper channels, and church protocols. Comparing it to the trial that took place with the Sanhedrin prior to the Roman examination and ultimate crucifixion of our Lord Jesus.
Additionally, the hosts and I believe another young immature pastor pretty much argued that pastors have a right to be entertained.
Well, it seems that these young and inexperienced preachers do not know what it means to be separated, sanctified, and holy before God to minister in righteousness and holy living.
The qualifications for being a Bishop or an overseer as recorded in Acts 20:27-31, 1 Timothy 3:1-7, and 1 Peter 5:1-4, could be taken across the board for anyone desiring to be in the ministry (service). Once you accept the divine invitation to preach for the Lord, there is a further separation that must take place. Rebellious can’t tell rebellion what to do. The line must be drawn when it comes to the kinds and types of “entertainment” preachers might expose themselves to.
For instance, there were many preachers on FB that showed a provocative picture of Lady Gaga during a recent concert. Sadly, the devil smiles when we try to make a point with a provocative picture because all we are doing is aiding and abetting a felon. We are providing a sanctuary for demonic activity. We are spreading evil.
We can talk about how wrong it is, but to show the picture is nothing short of pornography.
Having been in the ministry since September 7, 1979, I wish that I were a lot more disciplined. I could have avoided the defiled pit of porn and self gratification. However, having learned the lessons of abstaining from every appearance of evil, learning what not to watch, and what I feed on spiritually, these lessons of grace and deliverance, learned the hard way, could have saved me a lot of headaches.
Tears mean nothing. It’s when the heart realizes that you hurt God that godly sorrow works repentance, leading to salvation. True repentance calls it quits with sin. If you are not ready to quit sin, you will never learn true repentance. All I was doing was revolving around and fooling myself into thinking that God was fine. He wasn’t. He demanded that I leave the devil and sin.
It took a long time to learn this lesson. But November 2008 would be the date of full deliverance from porn and masturbation from porn. It took another year to break the power of masturbation, with several relapses into masturbation because I loved sin more than God.
Finally, the Lord said, “You must put this all together or you are still a hypocrite.”
And that’s the one that kicked it to the curb completely.
When you are young, Paul’s admonishment to “Flee youthful lusts…” is appropriate for today.
Then there are a lot of preacher’s wives that see no problem with watching chick flicks with skin and mild and or blatant pornographic sex. Nothing short of soft porn.
Joshua said, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
The wife is not to set the tone of what to watch. If that movie contains provocative sexual overtones, husbands, if she insists on watching it, let her turn into a pillar of salt.
One brother used, rather abused 1 Corinthians 6:12 where Paul said,
“All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful.”
Again, a good student of context would complete reading the entire verse and never quote a part to suit one’s own sinful needs.
All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.”
When you pay for a movie and watch it, you are under its power. If you are under the Lordship of Jesus, you will abstain from the appearance of evil.
Few young preachers understand that the spirit of antichrist is already in the world. People are under the spell of rebellion and witchcraft like Saul and the children of Israel. Or when the ark of the covenant was taken by the Philistines because Eli, the overweight and physically blind high priest would not discipline and kill his sons because of perverse sexual activity in the temple.
With this young preacher going to a Rick Ross and Lil’ Wayne concert, there is no question that sexually provocative lyrics were used. Any one going to these concerts will have scantily clad women dancing provocatively. As a pastor, your reputation as a man of God is compromised. Your relationship with the Lord is compromised.
Let’s go to the measure of where the compromise exists.
There is the strong possibility that porn and masturbation is part of his life. When you attend these “concerts” the realm and atmosphere is sexually charged. Demon power is strong and unrelenting. They will feed into your mind sexual immorality until you yield. Whether you are married or not, somewhere along the line, you will attempt to let off sexual tension. If you are married, and you have watched porn before, already, you view your wife as sub-pretty and below beautiful.
You make a move to remember what you observed in that concert. The hot one that looked into your eyes as you stood there, gazing and drooling. The sensual music got you into the right mood. One thing leads to another. You see another hot woman and another. Just like on the Internet, you keep clicking and saving the image in your depraved mind.
Folks, this is what every man goes through. Having been in that world of porn, I know what I am talking about.
Perhaps, you, as a pastor, never watched porn or never gratified yourself in masturbation, yet, you find yourself at these concerts. You think that you are strong enough to withhold yourself. Lines that you say that you would not cross. Demons will wait you out, my pastor friend, Pastor Roger Jamison of Sword Of the Spirit Tabernacle in Brooklyn, NY told me.
You will say “no.”
But every man has a breaking point.
You think that you can’t be broken.
“Take heed, lest you fall into temptation,” said Paul.
The devil will keep on bringing that offer until you take it. All it takes is one moment of relapse. One slip of the eyes. One thought that mesmerize your mind and heart. One! Just one.
These preachers and radio hosts thinks that sin is innocent. In an article about it, one person made up an excuse that perhaps this young preacher was trying to get a little “experience” so that he would seem relevant to the youth in his church. To be able to minister to them on their level.
This is a lie of the devil.
There are many that believe that Jesus sat with sinners just to hang out.
Look at the passage carefully. The entire passage.
Now it happened, as Jesus sat at the table in the house, that behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat down with Him and His disciples. And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to His disciples, “Why does your Teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”
When Jesus heard that, He said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy and not sacrifice. ’For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.”
You see, many will just talk about verses 10-12 and leave out verse 13.
What does verse 13 say?
He sat around sinners to do what?
What did Jesus said He is to do?
“CALL SINNERS TO REPENTANCE.“
I find it amazing that when you are dealing with LGBT, they know the Bible like the devil does. They say only a few verses that matter most to them but when it comes to the real issue that confronts their sin, they don’t even come close to quoting that part. Much like many young, immature, wet behind the ear pastors and preachers that think that they could justify sin like being able to hold their liquor.
I say again, from what Paul said in 1 Corinthians 10:12,
“Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.”
There are many young, immature pastors and preachers that believe they can stand there and take it all in, and not be affected. Few of us understand the absorption of the human spirit.
Notice what the Lord Jesus said in Matthew 6:22-23.
“The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!”
The window to your heart is your eyes. If you, with intent, look at dark things, your body will be full of darkness. If you, with intent, look at things that of the light, your body will be full of light. So when you go to these concerts, there is no light there. You are allowing darkness to have a home in your body. This is what demons want. Bodily expression. Demon possession is not only about foaming at the mouth, and being disheveled in appearance.
You could look clean, watch porn, and be just as possessed.
There is no excuse for any person that profess to know the Lord to witness perversion of any sort.
Deacon Langley is to be commended for taking action so as not to further allow darkness to come from the sacred pulpit. Thus sparing the flock of God perversion entering into the hearts and minds of the people.
Take a look at this YouTube video and judge for yourselves.
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.
