That’s it. I am going to stop clicking on news headlines with the word “gay” in it. There is never any balanced information. The elements of the story are always the same: Gay victim, Christian oppressors, love not hate, bigot, gay rights, blah, blah, blah. Where are the stories representing the truth of the opposing views?
When I was younger, I was hard pressed to find any mention of the word on TV. Online wasn’t even a worry at that point. I think that kept me insulated and isolated from the hands of satan. But satan has his tentacles in every aspect of today’s culture. You can’t flip on the TV without every other sentence referencing some LGBT tragedy or triumph in some form or fashion.
I have a friend who was a gay activist for many years. As I have watched the climate of the gay agenda seek to crush anyone with a differing opinion, I began to formulate an idea of what they are up to. It would appear that they are no longer just fighting for equality, but cultural domination. When I posed this question to my friend, He confirmed it. The gay agenda is fighting to elevate their beliefs and ideals to the forefront of society. They are seeking to redefine marriage as well as monogamy. I read two different articles on how the gay community is redefining the word monogamy to monogamish and serial monogamy. The effort is seems is to establish a “new world religion”. When it comes to all things LGBT, tolerance is a one-way street.
Even more disconcerting is the indoctrination of younger and younger children into the belief that gay relationships are as acceptable and equivalent to heterosexual relationships. Instead of teaching kids the principles of God ordained marriage and allowing them to have a choice to choose between right and wrong, they are simply spoon fed LGBT biased information. Heterosexuality does not guarantee purity and harmony in relationship, but it is the only template that God set forth for marriage. “For this reason, a man will leave his mother and father and cling to his wife,” not his husband.
As I was reading this morning, I felt like the following four scriptures from my reading are to be the theme of our lives as men who once called the gay community home. If we claim to be Christians, pornography and masturbation are no longer to be our stress relief. Don’t reach for your penis when the going gets tough. Reach for the comfort of the Holy Spirit and your relationship with Jesus. (Galatians 4:9). This level of purity must extend to our heterosexual brothers as well. We need you guys in our lives, as models, friends and confidantes in the fight. Establishing a relationship with a guy who has never struggled with SSA can be extremely intimidating, but very healing if you press past the fear. Start praying today for God to bring Christian men into your lives. Remember, God must be your everything, before anyone else can be your anything.
Galatians 4:9 But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire again to be in bondage?
Galatians 5:16 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
1 Corinthians 6:19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? 20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.2 Corinthians 7:1 Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
2 Corinthians 7:1 Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
A prayer: Heavenly Father, I ask for your protection for the LGBT community. I ask that every scripture reference that any of them have ever heard would be used by the Holy Spirit to draw them back to your loving arms. I pray that the injustices that are heaped upon them would cease. I pray for an end to violence where it seems to be the answer. I also pray that they would turn from their wicked ways. I pray that you would lead them to the cross with the truth. Lord let Christians see that this is not a fight against the LGBT community. It is a fight against satan and all the forces of Hell. I pray for the salvation of many. I ask that you would protect young men from predatory older men. I pray that boys searching for a daddy would find a loving Father instead. Lead them, guide them, love them Lord. Rescue them in Jesus name.
