“One can only stand in shock at the reckless abandonment of truth especially in the explosive area of human sexuality. Satan is having a field day with Christians. It is hard to watch as liberal Protestant denominations slowly collapse in the face of a virulent homo fascism. Now a growing number of evangelical churches and their leaders are doing so as well.”
It is no surprise that the all-pervasive secular culture — fed in large part by Hollywood — is working against the Christian faith. Day in and day out mass media is working to destroy Christian moral values while exalting fornication, adultery and homosexuality, and painting those who should come down with a nasty death-affirming disease as victims of homophobia.
The inroads into the churches has been nothing short of a blitzkrieg and catastrophic working to bring about compromise watering down the faith “once for all delivered to the saints.” While the pressure on the church to capitulate is what one might expect, Jesus and the apostles warned this might happen. There are some 44 verses about compromise in Scripture. Jesus in Matthew 6:24 says “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money” (or anything else including sex).
What is more surprising is when Christians, particularly evangelicals who should know better, capitulate in the face of contemporary cultural changes. One can only stand in shock at the reckless abandonment of truth especially in the explosive area of human sexuality. Satan is having a field day with Christians. It is hard to watch as liberal Protestant denominations slowly collapse in the face of a virulent homo fascism. Now a growing number of evangelical churches and their leaders are doing so as well.
Many times this comes from evangelical pop stars, the most recent being when Christian singer Vicky Beeching who disclosed a self-affirmed identity as a lesbian in an extensive interview with the British newspaper “The Independent” (“Vicky Beeching, Christian rock star ‘I’m gay. God loves me just the way I am”). She happily used the media to the fullest to attack the historic Christian stance on a male-female foundation for marriage. On her webpage she now has a whole section devoted to her “Coming Out” which provides over seventy links to media “covering Vicky’s coming out story” for the dates Aug. 14 -21.
Satan and his minions must have openly rejoiced at her “outing” as she sought to destroy the church from within along with its core teachings on male/female sexuality.
Now a group calling itself Evangelicals for Marriage Equality made a public pronouncement for an initiative for Evangelicals to support civil marriage equality in TIME magazine via an article written by someone calling himself Brandan Robertson.
Robertson, calling himself an evangelical Christian and affirming his belief that the Bible is God’s word, said he also believed that LGBT men and women should enjoy the same right to civil marriage as any other couple. “For many evangelicals, these statements are mutually exclusive. But they don’t have to be,” he said. Really.
