Salt in a rotten world

Here's my response to MJ in So Cal:

Christian leaders should always be for freedom of religion, and the main reason is that true Christian conversion can only be based on free choice. Through history there have been many attempts to make Christianity a state religion. Konstantin the great was the first regent to impose that on his people. This demand on everybody’s submission to the Christian faith actually was the greatest threat to true faith. Christianity is not about traditions and rituals even though many churches have adopted this false religion.

In regards to the issue of homosexuality and what the bible teaches. Jesus told us Christians to be salt in this world. Why? Because this world is in a rotting process. Without the word of God everything is spiraling down continually; morally and spiritually. That’s one of the reasons we are against the spreading of homosexual behavior, (and we believe it is a behavior and not something people are born to.) All sin is wrong in God’s eyes. Sex outside of marriage is also a destroyer and has robbed millions of true happiness. It is not love, it is lust, and cannot fill our deepest needs. We also believe that Jesus can deliver anybody that is in bondage. Lust is a spirit. Why do you think that a lot of homosexuals, men especially, have a very typical way of talking and moving? They are under the same influence and they can be set free.

Somebody mentioned Sodom and Gomorrah before. That whole town was under this influence. When two angels came to visit Lot, the men of the city knocked on the door and demanded that these two, (as they thought), men, would come out so they could lay with them.

This is what it says in Genesis 19:4-5:

“Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom—both young and old—surrounded the house. They called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them."

God destroyed these towns and Lot and his family were the only ones that survived. It’s all in the Bible. Nothing is new under the sun and history repeat itself. God is always the same though and we have his word to guide us and let us know the right way so we won’t perish.

To Janice:

Regarding Lot and why he didn’t fight these men. Well it says that it was “all the men, from every part of the city..- both young and old”. That sounds pretty overwhelming. And remember God spared only Lot and his family and that only because of Abraham’s prayers. I don’t know why he wanted to offer his daughters, maybe because the thought of these men violating even God’s angels was more than he could handle.

Back to MJ SO Cal, again:

I’ve been around for some time, half a century actually, and only in my lifetime have I seen a tremendous change. More people are falling for the homosexual lifestyle than ever before. And I think especially in your teenage years, if you are encouraged to try you can easily be caught. It’s all about lust really and it can be canalized either way.
I’ve had homosexual friends too. One guy I knew simply said that he thought it was less complicated to live with a man. I have also found that most homosexuals want to spread their lifestyle. There is even a thought pattern among them that everybody is gay, really. And considering it’s all about lust, that could happen when the moral standards break down completely. Many of them have a very clear agenda. They want everybody to bow to their way of thinking and they love to influence the media. It happens in America and all over the world. I’ve seen it in my country. They even take over what is to be family entertainment and dress and act in a way that children shouldn’t have to see. You don’t hear the word seduction very often these days. But it’s still a reality. People are being seduced, doped and numbed. Even in the schools homosexuals want to “inform” children about their lifestyle. It’s a very deliberate propaganda and it’s not just about them being able to live as they want. They want approval, even from Christians.

In Isaiah 5:20 it says:

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.”
