"... what God has joined together, let not man separate." ~ Matthew 19:3-9

The Supreme Court of the United States has rendered an ungodly law.
Our government was established to secure the country, not the people.

By approving of the immoral union of homosexuals,
affording them legal rights to obtain tax payers monies and benefits
is no less than legalizing sin and blatantly accepting evil practices.
We decree ungodly sexual behavior over merely adjusting tax codes?

                                                        ┌─> For all.
It is not a matter of social injustice
but that of an open public prison of lawlessness.
Legalized perversity digresses away from the noble
goodness all civilizations aspire to be; - purging evil.


... "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every
city or house divided against itself will not stand. ..." ~ Matthew 12:22-30


There is no union in the criminality of mans godless injustice.

Plainly division exists between the immoral and moral of this world.

~ Man's convolutions over God's expediency.


... the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived.
Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, ...
~ 1st Corinthians 6:9-11


The Bible is unambiguously clear.
Ö And for those dismissing Paulís writings as opinion will
have to contend with what has been written as the Word of God is.

... acknowledge that the things which I write to you
are the commandments of the Lord. ~ 1st Corinthians 14:37


... men, leaving the natural use of the women, burned in their lust for one
another, men with men committing what is shameful, ... ~ Romans 1:26-27


HOMOSEXUALITY = SHAMEFUL

You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. ...
~ Leviticus 18:22


The Bible proclaims that homosexuality is shameful.
By removing shame from sin we applaud tolerance with anything goes.
We mock God claiming to live by our own will over that by the will of God.


... everyone did what was right in his own eyes. ~ Judges 17:6

Without Godly rule of law societies reduce to desolation.

... But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers
and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie. ~ Revelation 22:14-15


The city of God will not accept male prostitutes or anything that defiles.

"You shall not bring the wages of a harlot or the price of a dog
to the house of the LORD your God ..." ~ Deuteronomy 23:18


A dog refers to one who is a sexual pervert or sexually promiscuous.
Wickedness and contempt for all holiness is part of this ďdogĒ position.

God seeks godly offspring through His Holy institutions over hypocrites.


... you say, "Everyone who does evil Is good in the sight of the LORD, And He
delights in them," Or, "Where is the God of justice?" ~ Malachi 2:10-17


Man does not define God.
God does not delight in the lawlessness of man
or his faithless impatience.


... "It is not lawful for you to have her." ... ~ Matthew 14:3-5

Just because desire entices someone to do a thing
does not make it lawful, even if the leader approves of it.


... 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, ... ~ Romans 1:28-2:2


God's position is that of helper of all, not controller.
Our choice is our life and how we choose to conduct our spirit.
Homosexual behavior is a choice of self over that of Godís will.


... whose glory is in their shame--who set their mind on earthly things. ...
~ Philippians 3:17-4:1


* No excuse will pardon a soul from the law of God.  
Fools celebrate in the diversity of their ignorant folly.


There is a way that seems right to a man,
But its end is the way of death. ~ Proverbs 14:12


... do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering,
not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance? ...
~ Romans 2:3-11


Repentance is a change in the selfís way to the way of God.

You have plowed wickedness; You have reaped iniquity. You have eaten
the fruit of lies, Because you trusted in your own way, ... ~ Hosea 10:13


We should not allow our trust in man (self) to supersede our trust in God.

Thus says the LORD: "Cursed is the man who trusts in man And makes
flesh his strength, Whose heart departs from the LORD. ~ Jeremiah 17:5


All have descended to what is shameful in discovery of the self.

For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men,
teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, ... ~ Titus 2:11-14


God accepts all those who turn back to Him and His way.
Pray for an escape to Him and forgiveness of the thoughts of your heart.


For we ourselves were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving
various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, ... ~ Titus 3:3


God demands righteousness over well defined unrighteousness.

Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace
with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. ~ 2nd Timothy 2:22


... abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul, ... ~ 1st Peter 2:11

... you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped
the corruption that is in the world through lust. ~ 2nd Peter 1:4


LUST LEADS TO CORRUPTION

Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you, ... ~ James 4:7-10


He listens for a heartís empty humble plea greater than self imposed edicts.

"If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well,
sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it."
~ Genesis 4:7


God asks us to have control over our physical desires
with the purpose of desiring a higher spiritual way.


For all that is in the world - the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes,
and the pride of life - is not of the Father but of the world. ~ 1st John 2:16


Worldliness can only fill one with emptiness.
LUST OF THE EYES
LUST OF THE FLESH
PRIDE OF LIFE

 =  WORLDLINESS
NOT OF GOD


His creation offers eternal life over that of dark fleeting emotions.

... it is an abomination to fools to depart from evil. ~ Proverbs 13:19

Hardened hearts will not embrace divine revelations over themselves.
                
... Sodom and Gomorrah ... given themselves over to sexual immorality ...
set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. ~ Jude 1:7


God decrees the eternal destruction of the sexually immoral.

GODíS WILL = ABSTAIN FROM SEXUAL IMMORALITY

Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled;
but fornicators and adulterers God will judge. ~ Hebrews 13:4


... God did not call us to uncleanness, but in holiness. Therefore he who
rejects this does not reject man, but God, ... ~ 1st Thessalonians 4:3-8


... do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, ... ~ Galatians 5:13

Liberty for all should not include those that would forfeit what is right.
Liberty is meant for the just, not for the excessiveness of all liberality.
As living together and divorce is commonplace, murderers are tolerated.
~
One must pursue a true relationship with God in such a godless world.
Individually
God is a choice with eternal consequences.


... to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life ...
~ Romans 8:5-8


It is a question of rising to Him or descending to whims of the flesh.
If you choose to be earthly indulging in perverse sensual pleasures
you deny the will of God to control your flesh with your spirit.


Is self satisfaction more important than
Godís commands to enter His eternity?


I would like to give thanks for the inspiration of my brother in Christ, Paul Finney.
