IS THIS "HATEFUL"??
-Andrew Strom.

I have been very surprised and shocked in the last couple of days
at all the Christians who want us to stay "silent" on the issue of
Homosexuality - and make out that it is nothing 'special' - just
any old sin. They think it makes us "look bad" to speak up about
it - judgmental and "unloving".

I think what a lot of people don't realize is that this issue is specifically
being used by the devil as the "leading edge" of his agenda in the
earth. He is using Homosexuality to push his religion of "secularism"
massively amongst the youth. More than any single issue, this is
the devil's favorite.

Think about this for a moment. Today's Homosexual movement
is not just about "practicing" Homosexuality. They are also about
"preaching" it and `convertingĀ“ the youth to embrace it as "good".
What they push is actually "spiritual" propaganda - a false gospel
of 'sin-celebration' that totally undermines the Bible. We need to
start seeing these activists as aggressive "preachers" of a new
religion - a religion designed to totally replace Christianity. These
are some of it's most zealous 'missionaries'. And they are
successfully "converting" the youth of all the earth.

The whole idea is to completely rid the planet of any sense of
what "sin" is.

You will notice that in the last 25 years there has been an
enormous push in the media to "normalize" Homosexuality. It
used to be that two men kissing would make everyone want to
gag. But these activists knew that if they put sympathetic "gay"
characters again and again into movies and TV shows, eventually
they would wear down the scruples of the audience. Comedies are
especially helpful for this. And gradually they have "converted" an
entire generation of young people to their cause. In this they have
been overwhelmingly successful. It may be the greatest "propaganda"
victory ever. The battle is already theirs. And they are using the
media to spread it more and more around the world.

We need to start seeing gay promotions and gay TV shows, not
just as 'Homosexual' events, but also as "preaching" events. They
are designed to "convert' people - to make them 'fine' with sin - yet
"not fine" with anyone who opposes the sin. Their "preachers"
have been winning this war. It is devil take the youngest.

Because of all this "propaganda", Christians have become more
and more reluctant to call Homosexuality what the Bible clearly
calls it - an "abomination". (Leviticus 20:13, Romans 1:27, etc.)
Nobody ever wants to use that word any more. We are frightened
to be thought of as "unloving" or judgmental. And so more and
more we let the devil define what is sin and what is not. I tell you,
if we roll over on this issue, the devil will have us for breakfast -
he really will. Entire generations are riding on our response.

If we let the devil define "sin" then it is over. The gospel cannot
be preached when the devil defines it's terms.

There are actually very few sins that earn the title "abomination"
in God's sight - especially when it is "paraded" in the open.
Homosexuality is seen by Him as being so bad that it is often
associated with "Judgment" in Scripture. We also find throughout
history that when a culture embraces Homosexuality, it is almost
always very close to the end of that civilization. History shows
this again and again.

One of the biggest lies, of course, is that there is some kind of
"gay gene" - that people are "born with". This is completely false,
and if you do a search on the Internet you will find that there has
been study after study done in academic circles, with no evidence
of a "gay gene" whatsoever. Not that it truly matters any more.
The 'propaganda' war is mostly won anyhow.

But let me be clear on this: It is not OK to treat 'gay' individuals
with anything less than Christian love and kindness. It is very
important to go about this with the right spirit. We must always
act out of love and godly wisdom. But we must also speak the
TRUTH. We are not at "war" with individual 'gay' people. Quite
the opposite. But the movement and it's message - that is a
different story. There is a war going on for the hearts and minds
of today's youth. We are not to fight this in the "flesh" - with politics
or campaigning, etc. But we certainly are to raise our voices and
to loudly "speak the truth in love". Otherwise the upcoming
generation will be lost to the most powerful and clever "false
gospel" of them all.

In closing, let me say that it is not "loving" to be silent. True love
warns and pleads with people not to follow the way of sin and
death. We cannot compromise on this. It is compromise that is
"hateful" and leaves people stuck where they are. Love warns,
because it knows the consequences if it stays silent. This is true
mercy. So please - do not stop "speaking the truth in love", my
friends. It is truly a MUST in this hour. An entire generation is at stake.
