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.”

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 5-22-18
What’s Happening: “The Pope’s recent reported remarks may give the homosexual community great encouragement, but it flies in the face of tradition. Juan Carlos Cruz, himself an alleged object of much child sex abuse in the recent brouhaha that resulted in the mass and unanimous resignation of every Bishop in Chile, said Pope Francis told him, ‘God made you like that and loves you like that’ (https://www.yahoo.com/news/pope-francis-tells-gay-man-154105088.html). The LGBTQ community rejoiced.”
Knee-Jerk Response: “I’m familiar with LGBT (Lesbians, Bi-sexuals, Gays and Transgenders), but what is this ‘Q’?”
Biblical Response: “‘Q’ stands for ‘Questioning’. It has been added to the list of initials because those in the homosexual community believe many go through a period when they ‘question’ their sexual identity. Of course, mandatory sex education that depicts to grade-schoolers in California (recently passed controversial legislation) LGBT’s as normative behavior might be the source of ‘Q’s. That the Pope made such remarks, though neither confirmed nor denied by the Vatican, is not the direction of Catholic catechism. ”
“Christians? I’m not saying there aren’t real Christians in the Catholic faith, but the Pope’s alleged remarks, if true, do not bear out the testimony of Scripture (as the following will indicate: Lev. 18:22; Lev. 20:13; 1 Cor. 6:9; 1 Tim. 1:10…to name a few that condemn this lifestyle). Still, similar to the difference between ‘love’ and ‘like’, (there are many things my children do that I don’t like, but I still love them), I am to hate the sin and love the sinner (‘The good hate the badness of the wicked. The wicked hate the goodness of the good.’ Prov. 29:27 LB).”
