Yesterday, the American Supreme Court passed the “marriage equality law” which officially legalized gay marriages in America. Just a day before, another landmark ruling that gave a nod to the Obamacare law was made by the same court. Let us say, the past two days were both sad as well as joyous days for America and the whole world at large. However, both decisions made by the court were hailed as a big win for the American people by none other than their president.
An evidently elated Obama, gave a captivating victory speech on the triumph of Obamacare. On the gay marriage law, he wrote this on social media: “love Just Won.” The LGBT movement has since gone full throttle and unleashed its powerful machinery to ensure that the media is awash with praises of the “historic ruling” on gay marriage, as “supporters” took to the streets to celebrate the “victory of love.” We saw the same reaction recently when one Bruce Jenner declared that he is now officially a woman.
One is tempted to ask. Does president Obama believe right from his heart that love really won? The most likely answer is NO. But being the shrewd politician that he is, the American president has to do his best to remain “politically correct” or face the full force of of a massive backlash that always erupts any time a prominent person speaks against the LGBT movement.
Obama is not alone in this. Many influential figures, including church leaders, are afraid to speak against the absurdity of the LGBT movement because of the fear of losing “followers” and donor funding. In other words, they choose “political correctness” over God’s truth even as we witness scenes that can make Sodom and Gomorrah look like child play, right at the doorsteps of the church! In the name of freedom and rights, people have given in to unnatural lusts with such abandon that they don’t have time to question the rationale that informs their behavior. It is all in the name of pursuing the ever elusive happiness.
This makes “political correctness” the biggest idol being worshiped by many in the world today. Many are terrified by the possibility being labeled backward and intolerant. They are boxed into a corner where they either choose to remain silent or, even worse, support absurd happenings all over around them. Why can’t people say the truth that what the LGBT movement stands for is satanic bull crap and it sucks?
In (Exodus 20: 2-6), God was very clear when He gave Moses the Ten Commandments.
2“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
3“You shall have no other gods before me.
4“You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.
5You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,
6but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
Then in (Isaiah 2.8-12) the Bible has this to say about idol worshipers, when the day of the lord comes. Might this be America?
8Their land is full of idols;
they bow down to the work of their hands,
to what their fingers have made.
9So people will be brought low
and everyone humbled—
do not forgive them.
10Go into the rocks, hide in the ground
from the fearful presence of the Lord
and the splendor of his majesty!
11The eyes of the arrogant will be humbled
and human pride brought low;
the Lord alone will be exalted in that day.
12The Lord Almighty has a day in store
for all the proud and lofty,
for all that is exalted
(and they will be humbled),
There is no doubt that God will show no mercy to those who turn their back on Him to worship idols and mere physical features. Will our forefathers who used to worship mountains, oceans, lakes and rivers go to heaven? One might ask. Methinks, God will judge us according to how much He has revealed Himself to us and yet we chose to embrace or ignore Him. During the times of our forefathers, especially in Africa, God had only revealed Himself through his awesome creation.This included through the big geographical features and natural phenomena.
Therefore, we can conclude that those who worshiped mountains, oceans and other natural phenomena recognized a greater power behind such creation. What they did not realize is that they were actually not awed by the creation per se, but by the powerful mastermind behind the breath-taking creation. Since the gospel of the living word was yet to reach these people, it is evident that they knew God and they worshiped Him through his fascinating creation.
In the modern world, technology has made it easier for the gospel to make inroads even to the remotest parts of the world. Woe unto those who have heard the gospel of the living word and yet they choose to worship the creation instead of worshiping the creator. The day of reckoning will surely come.
