“For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.…” (Romans 1:25-27)
America is in trouble. Since the moment President Obama announced his change in favor of same sex marriage whereby he effectively changed the very course of the nation’s long held stance on traditional marriage, which is between one man and one woman, the nation has spiraled out of control. Within just five years, what was once considered out of the realm of possibility (same sex marriage) is now a reality as over 60% (and some polls shows even higher favorable numbers) of Americans have no problem with same sex marriage. Even among Christians, especially those 35 years and younger, the numbers show an even greater degree of support for same sex marriage. It’s like a spiritual flood gate has opened up a cavern of perversion and yet the modern church continues its business as usual. What is going on?
The apostle Paul gave us a glimpse in what is happening right now in our society when it comes to perversion in 2 Timothy 4:3 “For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions,” The fact is this, our nation is under attack by an antichrist spirit, and that spirit is unleashing a spirit of perversion across the land.
Recently Bruce Jenner came “out” as a woman after months of rumors that he was in the process of a sex change, now, in an exclusive interview Jenner (who asked to be referred simply as “he”) made the announcement most had already knew, that he was actually a woman and was going through a series of medical treatments to become a woman – and the response by the world was equally as troubling. Celebrities and friends as well as the public all have come out in full support of Bruce Jenner’s “life” change. The problem? Jenner is another victim of a society that has lost its moral compass and spiritual direction.
Today it’s not just a former Olympic gold medalist whose making headlines in this new world called transgenderism, but now even children are becoming victims in this battle of decency and moral values. Children as young as five years old are following victim to this plague of perversion which says a child or even an adult was born wrong, when in reality what is happening is not a genetic problem but a spiritual problem. The answer will not be found in the medical treatment facilities where children and adults are subjected to secular psychologists who will deem these individuals as victims of genetic mutations, but it will be found in the cross. Let me make this abundantly clear, no one is born gay, or a transgender person, they are born as they were designed by God himself, male or female. Yet the problem lies not with the parents but with the medical and psychological community, who have partnered together under the guise of tolerance and with full backing of the gay agenda, are invading our schools, our political system as well as now our religious system by attempting to reject what is normal, to accept that which is abnormal.
Bruce Jenner, every homosexual, every transgendered person who finds themselves believing this lie are following the spirit of confusion, the only answer which will satisfy their inner craving is in fact Jesus Christ and allow the cross to radically change their life. Unless they come to the understanding that God has never approved nor accepted that which is unacceptable, they will continue to walk down the path of confusion and inner turmoil and the end result will be destruction. The truth is, these people are being lied to. They are being led astray by a spirit of perversion and the deceiver himself – Satan.
I fear what this recent change in attitude among Americans to embrace perverse ideas such as transgenderism and same sex marriage in this nation will do nothing but create a conditioning to begin a major shift further away from biblical Christian beliefs, but as well turn the hearts of the people, even believers, away from the truth. Even now, I see the slow change in opinion among the younger generation who call themselves born again evangelicals to slowly accept that which the word strictly forbids us from accepting. How ironic that the very nation which upheld Christian principles is now being changed from the inside, not by Communism, or Socialism or the Muslim threat, but from another ideology through the political means of intolerance and diversity teachings. The fact that a Christian can now be subject to civil penalties if they refuse to accommodate a gay man or woman is in fact a reflection to this cultural war that is now being waged in this nation. But I do not blame the homosexuals or the radical gay left lobbyists, I blame the pulpits across the nation who have allowed the preaching of sin to be removed from much of the sermons today.
So what is to become of our nation now that the tide is obviously turning? I believe that the answer will be judgment. For I see a day coming very soon where churches in America will not be permitted to operate under past normal conditions, but it will be regulated under the guise of political correctness, and none will escape from its perverse grip. This is the result of our slide away from the truth and a slide into complete perversion from what is right and what is true. America’s future is one which I believe will become less and less as we get closer to the end and the rise of another kingdom, then everything will have fallen into place. These first rumblings are just tremors of the bigger shock wave yet to come.
