Ephesians 2:2 “Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:”
Not long ago NYC celebrated it’s 48th pride parade June 23–25, a sad sight to behold. Droves of men and women flocked to the city to be loud, immoral and dance the day away. People from all walks of life lost in darkness blinded by their sin.
Strolling around this city the first few days back from living overseas I was shocked, to say the least. Being fully aware the Supreme Court of the United States ruled in favour of same-sex marriage was one thing but it’s still shocking to see the downward spiral of man. As pride flags hung on the front door of some churches and people making comments saying God condones same-sex marriage is far from the truth. God never condones sin!
Feeling the sorrow inside for these people who are enemies of God. God calls sodomy an abomination, it’s a sin against His creation. Same-sex relationships are just as wrong as lying, fornication, murder, violence, blasphemy etc. Little do they realize they are on the broad road to eternal destruction (hell).
Romans 1:26–28 “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;”
Society is quick to call a person who speaks out against sin a “judgemental” or “hateful”. The devil has used “political correctness” to keep believers of Christ quiet. As Christians, we’re not hating anyone we’re warning you of the consequences you’ll face for going against God. We love all people and because we love we warn them out of love for them.
My brothers and sisters, I know sharing the Gospel with the lost can be uncomfortable, you don’t want to be hated or scoffed at. But you have to ask yourself this question when you face God and he asks you why didn’t you share the Gospel what will you say? We must speak out against all sin and share the good news how that Christ died for us opening the door of salvation to anyone who believes.
Mark 16:15 “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”
That’s a commandment from the Lord Jesus Christ, it’s not an option. I’m not saying you have to be an open air preacher, but you should be sharing the Gospel one way or the other. Whether that’s through one on one, or passing out tracks, social media, writing blogs, anything that gets the Gospel message out.
Romans 10:15 “And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!”
As encouragement start speaking out, maybe gather some fellow friends who are believers and share God’s love with people, they need to know God offers them eternal life. Speak the truth in love. God bless.
