Only roughly 3% of the population of the United States identify with the LGBTQ community. How can such a tiny minority have so much power and influence? It can obviously only be a spirit. The winds of unbelief and rejection of Truth have been blowing across the moral landscape of America since the 50’s and 60’s. The outrageous examples in the News these last few days is proof that we are seeing the ushering in of the end. Prophecy is being fulfilled and there is nothing anyone can do about it. No amount of money, or political activism or fasting or evangelism will stop the Word of God from being fulfilled. People are confused, and it’s because Truth no longer reigns in the heart of men. BUT, Christians much march ever forward; “Onward Christian Soldier”!

CHRISTIANS: Please stop being “politically correct” about homosexuality.
I hear a lot of Christians say, “Why do we point out homosexuality and not talk about lying, stealing, adultery, fornication, gluttony, fill in another common sin”. Reason? Liars, thieves, adulterers, etc…are not demanding the churches approval and acceptance, BIG DIFFERENCE. The LGBTQ movement is looking for praise, acceptance, and affirmation. Why is this? Because their conscience convicts them of their sinful lifestyle, and hearing support from others (especially professing Christians) makes them feel a little better in their sin. Look at Romans 1:32, this describes the LGBTQ community:
Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
As the LGBTQ movement comes out of the closet, Christians are going into the closest and are being told by national leaders to “practice their religion at home” don’t bring it out into society and the marketplace. This is startling. Yesterday, I posted an article about Mike Huckabee saying, “We are moving rapidly toward the Criminalization of Christianity in America” and he’s right. The LGBTQ community will not stop until Biblical Christians are silenced, even if that includes: jail, fines, losing jobs, unfit to teach, unfit to govern, removal of non-profit status, unfit to work in childcares, and the list goes on and on. The Apostle Peter told us not to be surprised when they “mock” us for not participating and approving their sin. 1 Peter 4:3-5.
For the time that is past suffices for doing what the Gentiles want to do, living in sensuality, passions, drunkenness, orgies, drinking parties, and lawless idolatry. With respect to this they are surprised when you do not join them in the same flood of debauchery, and they malign you; but they will give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.
Right now, LBGTQ individuals make-up roughly 3% of the population. In the coming years, I expect that number to increase dramatically. As this lifestyle becomes more accepted and encouraged, expect to see 1 in 10 Americans classify themselves as LGBTQ in the coming decade. As little children are taught about their sexual “choices” in public schools, this will lead to more and more LGBTQ children. Who knows, maybe in 50 years half of Americans will identify themselves as LGBTQ? Seem outlandish? Just 50 years ago pre-marital sex was frowned upon, now the majority of Americans encourage it (live together before you are married). The LGBTQ sexual revolution is just beginning…
What is a Christian Parent to do? Live a holy life. Preach the gospel. Call sin sin. Make war against the worldliness in your life. Stop spending so much time on material/education pursuits with your child, and direct that energy in discipling them in Christ. Let them know they will suffer for being a Christian. Read to them church history. Talk about the persecution the early church experienced. Talk about the persecution the Reformation Fathers experienced. Read the book, “Foxes Book of Martyrs” to them. Let them know what Jesus said, ““If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you.” John 15:18
Finally, please attend churches that will not shy away on this issue (calling homosexuality a sin). If your church becomes “politically correct” on homosexuality, challenge the pastor, elders, and deacons. If your pastor refuses to address this issue and the rampant sexual immorality that our culture is fast embracing, I would pray about finding another church. You will see in the coming years many “evangelical mega-churches” compromising on this issue, because they don’t want to lose their numbers and big-budget. For those mega-churches who stand strong on supporting Biblical Marriage they will shrink in numbers, lose their tax status (which would have huge ramifications), and will likely lose their buildings. This is all on the horizon, get ready now. And yes, we still love LGBTQ people, and the most loving thing we can tell them is that Christ can set them free from sin. The person who tells you the most truth actually loves you the most. Like Paul said to the Corinthians…
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11
