Where Are Our Voices?
We are in a fight for our spiritual lives. Evil is conducting an assault on every hand. The devil is relentless and the weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. They have the power to demolish strongholds! (2 Cor. 10:4-5) The question is: what are we doing to sustain the battle, to win the war, and to let it be known that we take our stand with God. As stated in last week’s bulletin,
“One of the hardest things to do is to get people to ‘take a stand’ and be heard.”
Most people do not like controversy even though God’s word teaches that we must be controversialists. We must be fearless in the defense of the gospel of Jesus Christ. (l Tim. 6:12; Jude 3)
Where are our voices when a nation and its administrators enact laws that openly defy God’s will? God has stated that
homosexuality is wrong, unnatural, and unacceptable. Yet,
authorities in high places have declared that same sex marriages
should be allowed. God says otherwise! Any attempt to allow what God forbids is defiance, disrespect, and will lead to eternal ruin. No person has the right to contradict God for political, social, or economic reasons. Same sex unions, marriages, and courtships are unacceptable and should not be allowed. God says homosexuals are wrongdoers, and that they will not inherit the kingdom of God. (1 Cor. 6:9-10) God says homosexuality is shameful, unnatural, degrading, impure and depraved. (Rom 1:24-27)
In the beginning God made a man and a woman for one another’s companionship. (Gen. 2:22-25) God made a wife for Adam. The relationship involved Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve! God brought Eve to Adam. He did not bring Eve to Bev! God made a female for Adam. He did not make a hemale for the man! At the beginning the Creator made them male and female. (Mat.19:4) When an acceptable marriage takes place, God joins the man to his wife. (Mat.19:5)
• Same sex marriages have never been acceptable to God.
• Same sex marriages are not now acceptable to God.
• And same sex marriages will not ever be acceptable to God.
Where are our voices in opposition to what is now transpiring in our nation? How can you conscientiously remain quiet knowing what God’s will teaches about what constitutes an acceptable marriage? Would you remain quiet if there were an attack on your financial, physical, and mental well-being? The current attack being made by society’s extremely liberal element is an attack against your spiritual well-being. Will you continue to remain silent? More to follow.

blogs. You may access it by going to the following links.
We also want to encourage people with bible questions to
write them down and pass them along to someone who is
qualified to give answers from the scriptures.
