Hey, Sodom and Gomorrah. Look at California!


California once again leads the way in making sure that the “states children” have every possible chance to grow up to become God hating reprobates with thoroughly debased minds. Current California State Law states that:

“All K-12 schoolchildren must be taught to ‘appreciate’ various sexual orientations.”

“Public-school teachers and counselors must identify children with the potential to being ‘intolerant’ of homosexuality – and refer them for retraining.”

“Any school material that reflects negatively on homosexuality, bisexuality, or transgenderism, cannot be used, and parents cannot have their children removed from classes over offensive material.”

“Non-prophet groups which refuse to hire homosexuals (like the Boy Scouts) may be fined up to $150,000 per incident.”

If that wasn’t bad enough, this week California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law a ban on therapy aimed at helping homosexual children become normal. The law completely bans all advice and help for sexually confused minors, regardless of what the minor or their parents desire, and there are absolutely no exceptions. For instance, even if the child was the victim of sexual abuse, they still cannot legally get help in California effective Jan. 1st.

Why would California do this? Well, according to the pro-homosexual lobby, “conversion therapy” must be stopped  at all costs to prevent homosexual youth from getting “depressed and committing suicide.” Never mind that homosexuals due to their wildly abnormal and unhealthy behavior are officially 50 times more likely to contract the deadly and incurable AIDS virus, are eight tomes more likely to contract hepatitis, are 14 times more likely to contract syphilis, and are 25 times more likely to commit suicide then heterosexuals. Gosh, with wonderful statistics like that why on earth would any parent want their mixed up happy “gay” child to possibly get help?

Oh, but there is more, 25-33% of homosexuals become alcoholics and homosexuals are also 19 times more likely to be involved in fatal traffic accidents and 100 times more likely to be murdered (usually by another homosexual). Statistically,  21% of lesbians die of murder, suicide or traffic accidents, which is at a rate 534 times higher than the norm for young women. Homosexuality is in fact so deadly that the  median age of death for homosexuals is only 42! But hey, don’t worry. The “State” knows what’s best for the child.

Any parent that has a homosexual child (even if they are now a fully grown adult), has an absolute moral obligation to never ‘accept’ their child’s homosexual behavior as being “natural, normal, and healthy”, because it is obviously not. The truth is that homosexual behavior is extremely unnatural, dangerous, and deadly. Acting like it is “not a big deal” and just being warm and supportive of their chosen “alternative lifestyle” is about as irresponsible as letting a five year old play on a moving highway simply because the child says: “It looks like fun.” Sure the child will have a whole bunch of fun, but he or she will also probably end up dead!

Regardless of what some ridiculous California Law states, the truth is that homosexuality must be confronted head-on for what it truly is: “SIN.”

What is sin? Simply put, sin is rebellion against Almighty God. Homosexuals express (through their out of control behavior) rebellion against God and objective moral truth (which is a reflexion of God and the way He desires people to think, act, and behave). God calls homosexuality an “abomination”, because it is completely evil (Leviticus 18:22). Make no mistake, all homosexuals which do not greatly desire to change their behavior, fully repent, and accept Jesus’ free gift of pardon will later be judged against God’s perfect Holy standard, be found wanting, and justly thrown into hell as recorded in Revelation 20:11-15. The Apostle Paul was dead serious when he wrote that those which live out their fleshly sin nature will not inherit the kingdom of God:

“The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.” – Galatians 5 :19-21

The Apostle Paul further explained that those that do such things are also without excuse:

“The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.

“For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man…” - Romans 1:18-23

Homosexuals rebelliously suppress the truth in unrighteousness and exchange the truth of God for a lie to the point that God finally hands them over to be enslaved by their own sinful nature. Homosexuality is so terrible that it is even worse then sin. In fact, it is a divine judgment:

“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.” -  Romans 1:26-32

Why would God allow people to sin even more if He hates sin so much? Is it because God hates people too? No, absolutely not. God hands certain rebellious individuals over to sin because He hates sin, yet loves the sinner. That may seem strange, but look at it from God’s perspective. God is longsuffering and doesn’t desire anyone to perish, but that all come to repentance:

“The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” – 2 Peter 3:9

In other words, God allows homosexuals to become “wretched fools”, so that they will hopefully recognize that they are “wretched fools”, deserving of death, and in desperate need of the Savior (i.e. Jesus Christ). God wants them to come to the end of themselves and be humbled so that they will finally seek His face, repent, turn from wickedness, and fully receive His grace and love by simply accepting the free gift of pardon which Jesus Christ purchased for them on the cross.

Unfortunately, some people are so self centered and hardened that they have to learn God’s lessons the hard way, and some are so hardened that they never learn and suffer the eternal consequences. Just remember, God is a gentleman, not a thug or a rapist. He will never force his love upon anyone. If anyone wants to follow Christ and experience God’s grace and love and inherit eternal life – it is their choice. On the other hand, if they desire to reject Christ, refuse the free gift of pardon and therefore not be indwelt with the Holy Spirit (which is the only unpardonable sin), and be judged by their own worthless works, and therefore be justly thrown into hell for their foolishness – again it is their choice. God just gives them what they want (i.e. eternal separation from Him). As Billy Graham once put it: “The same sun that melts the butter, hardens the clay.” Our Lord Jesus Christ invites all to come, be saved, and follow Him so that they can overcome this fallen sinful world. Jesus said:

“Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent. Here I am! I stand at the door  and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me. To him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my Father on his throne.” – Revelation 3:19-21

Who is it that overcomes? The apostle John through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit gave us the answer:

“Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.” – 1 John 5:5

The only way out of the bottomless pit the homosexual has foolishly jumped into is to “overcome the world” by repenting and accepting the free gift of pardon. Only then through the power of the Holy Spirit can they truly be set free from Satan’s grasp.

The apostle Paul explained how to be saved and fully pardoned. It’s so amazingly simple:

“That if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. As the Scripture says, ‘Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame.’ For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, ‘Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’” – Romans 10:9-13

What a wonderful promise: “Anyone who trusts in Jesus will never be put to shame.” That is because once a person is saved, all their sins (past, present, and future) are covered by Jesus’ shed blood. That’s good news!

As for Governor Jerry Brown and all the California legislators who passed their latest abomination which has become law, they had better repent while they still can and repeal it. Jesus Christ gave a very stern warning:

“And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me. But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to sin! Such things must come, but woe to the man through whom they come!”  – Matthew 18:5-7

Have a blessed day.
