What's Wrong With the Far Left? (Part 2)

Yesterday, I left off with the discussion about the danger of "hate crimes" legislation and how the ulterior motives behind it attempt to hide how negatively such legislation would affect religious freedom of speech.

The loss of Religious freedom on this issue would be the first to suffer amongst an entire host of terrible things that would result if such legislation were to pass.

Just click on that link and see what has happened to religious leaders and preachers in other nations where the former freedom of speech ability to share what the Bible tells us about homosexuality (being sin and an abomination to God) is no longer legal.

You see, there is much more at stake than originally meets the eye.

I sincerely hope that you clicked on that link and read everything on that page.

I happen to think that it's not all religious freedom of speech, in general, that will be affected, but Biblical, evangelical Christian speech and viewpoints that will be specifically targeted as "hate speech."


Because there aren't too many religions out there that even care anymore about the homosexual agenda, no less would have concerns that it would harm their freedom of speech, freedom of association, and freedom to spread the Gospel of Christ (of course). This is what is entirely unique about Biblical Christianity. It is the one fortress, if you will, that is still left, holding out against the raging attempts of homosexual activist extremism permeating every corner of society.

This morning, I read an excellent post over at Kingdom Advancing on the topic of Homosexuality and Christianity.

Please go read that post!!

It is tremendously important to see how strongly the Bible condemns homosexual behavior.

It's interesting. I felt "led" to see what Kingdom Advancer has written lately. My blogroll has grown so large that I don't always get to read every blog every week. But today, I was drawn to this particular blog. I now see why I had such a strong leading towards that blog on this day. It fit in perfectly with my previous blogpost and reiterates what I have often stated against the "gay behavior approval" Christian movement.

Here is what is written as the description for Kingdom Advancer's blog:

Advancing God's Kingdom...Defending God's Kingdom. Sometimes the best way to gain new territory is by defending the territory already had; sometimes the best way to advance God's Kingdom is by defending God's Kingdom. On the other hand, sometimes the best way to protect territory is by attacking others' territory; sometimes the best way to build up God's Kingdom is by tearing down Satan's strongholds.

Note what I have placed in bold.

...sometimes the best way to build up God's Kingdom is by tearing down Satan's strongholds.

My friends, to the average "eye" in the secular culture (and, even some Christians), the acceptance, condoning, celebration, and embracing of homosexual behavior is considered as a "good" thing.

I'm telling you that it is NOT a good thing.

It is truly, one of Satan's strongholds to keep lost people out of the God's Kingdom!!

As I have stated previously, the Bible does not call people abominations, it calls certain acts of sin abominations.

That is a huge distinction!!

No one is beyond the saving grace of our loving God!! The power of Christ's cross and saving grace that any sinner can gain is only given through repentance and belief in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior!

First Corinthians warns us not to follow the "wisdom of men," but to adhere to the wisdom of God's written Word, the Bible, and God's Living Word, the Person of Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 2:1-5 (NKJV)
Christ Crucified

2And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the *testimony of God. 2 For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. 3 I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling. 4 And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of *human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5 that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.

We are to be diligent, and recognize the true wisdom of God being spoken, not the wisdom of anyone who would skew what is written in God's Word!!

1 Corinthians 2:6 (NKJV)
Spiritual Wisdom

However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing.

1 Corinthians 2:7-16

7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory,

8 which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

9 But as it is written:
"Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him."*

10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.

11 For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God.

12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.

13 These things we also speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches but which the *Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

15 But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one.

16 For "who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?"* But we have the mind of Christ.

NU-Text omits Holy.

Here is an article about the Phelps cult and their despicable desire to picket the funerals of those murdered at VA Tech.

I hope that readers will take note of the difference between their message of hate and Kingdom Advancer's (as well as my) message of encouragement and hope for the homosexual.

The cross of Christ provides the bridge between Holy God and sinful man. Through our individual repentance of sin (ANY sin...and we all have that scourge!), forgiveness through the shed blood of Christ for the remission of sin, the application of mercy and undeserved grace upon the believer by God, for the purpose of reconciliation... is the TRUE Gospel of Christ.

When you read what the Phelps' cult believes, you can see how they are irreparably mistaken about the Gospel of Christ and how they have twisted the Scriptures to follow a finite man (Fred) in his own delusions of grandeur. Where does heresy and apostasy stem from? The lies of Satan.

Many of comments at that link are really angry ones. But I'm glad to read that people aren't buying into the Phelps cult lies and rhetoric.

I was also pleased to read that VA recently passed legislation forbidding people to picket within hearing distance of a funeral. It's about time!

Our culture has become so coarsened to the point where common decency seems to no longer exist. There was a time when I couldn't have even imagined that people would even think of picketing during a time of tremendous grief and bereavement. How shameful and disgusting...

Thank you Christine for keep up the pressure by openly discussing the left's infiltration of Christian churches!
