A Biblical Response to Current Events – 7-12-18
Are You Kidding (no pun intended) Me?!
What’s Happening: “With the creation of an official designation (MAPs – ‘Minor Attracted Persons) and a flag (to be used in ‘gay pride’ parades), pedophiles have at last made their final stab at joining the ‘accepted’ LGBTQ community…it was started in 2003 by mental health pros (https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/pedophiles-desperately-join-lgbt-movement-acceptance-flag/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=CTBreaking&utm_campaign=breaking&utm_content=conservative-tribune). ‘True pedophiles have an exclusive preference for children, which is the same as having a sexual orientation…,’ said retired Prof. Gijseghem of University of Montreal to parliament.”
Knee-Jerk Response: “So that would be LGBTQP?”
Biblical Response: “IF they are approved…and only in Canada. Why not just use the whole alphabet? Or simply: SINNERS? Truly, all sin separates us from a holy God…but in this case the collateral damage is unacceptable…or it used to be. We’ve come a long way, baby…but this is not in a good direction! We are not moving heaven and earth to save kids (the ‘Lost and Found…and Rescued!’ of yesterday’s CLARITY blog – subdeo.com) only to have them propositioned…or raped…they were safer in the cave!
“Christians? It’s not a sin to be tempted, but to give action to those thoughts…well, it doesn’t lead to a good place (James 1:15). If we don’t call outlaw unacceptable behavior AND use the Bible’s mandates as our standard…well what does it say about sowing the wind? You reap the whirlwind! (Hos. 8:7)”
Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray: “Heavenly Father, nobody wants their passions bridled, but help us to use our reins (and brains!) to bring us back onto the road of sanity; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
