THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

“The two pillars of 'political correctness' are:
a) willful ignorance
b) a steadfast refusal to face the truth.”
(George MacDonald)

Even the Quran forbids homosexuality.
And, in some Muslim countries, homosexuals are hanged.

In the Bible, God defines homosexuality as an “abomination” to Him.

I have heard, for many years, people of the “left” say, “You cannot legislate morality.”
It’s my contention that we should NEVER allow legislation of IMMORALITY!

We’ve already seen legislation of gambling by redefining it and calling it “gaming.”
Now, half the country is addicted to the lottery!

Let me emphatically state that this view does not constitute “hate” against homosexuality.
Rather, it constitutes a desire to see salvation through Christ.

ANY sin can be forgiven!
In order to BE forgiven, one must first surrender to Jesus as Lord.
When one surrenders to Jesus as Lord, that person is changed! (See 2Corinthians 5:17 above)
Changed from the INSIDE OUT!
Changed from seeking one’s OWN way, to seeking Jesus’ way!

ANY person who is in a homosexual relationship can be forgiven and changed!
A genuine relationship with Jesus brings His loving “sanctification” – a process by which we are changed to His rightness.

Rom 1:16-27 says,
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

The question our Supreme Court faces is not one of sanctioning homosexual marriage.
It is the question of legalizing immorality!

Love ya!
