A Clear and Present Danger – By Daymond Duck – http://www.raptureready.com/featured/duck/dd118.html
On April 3, 2014, Brendan Eich resigned his position as CEO of Mozilla Corporation because a group of intolerant gays was complaining about a $1,000 donation he made in support of a 2008 proposition to ban gay marriage in California. The proposition passed with 52% of the vote and it was in line with the views expressed by Barack Obama, Joseph Biden and Hillary Clinton at that time.
The proposition was also in line with the laws of the thirteen original states of the U.S., the long-held views of the vast majority of U.S. citizens, and more important, what the Bible teaches on the issue (Lev.18:21-22; 20:13). It was an effort to stick to America’s roots, to restore Bible morality, and to avoid the eventual judgment of God on our nation.
The problem in Sodom was due more to the widespread acceptance of homosexuality than it was to the existence of homosexuality. The Bible says, “the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them” (Gen.19:4-5). The old, the young and all the people from every quarter clearly approved of the homosexual lifestyle. President Obama is like this, he is obsessed with the idea of spreading homosexuality all over the world even to the point of using our diplomats to do it.
Unfortunately, President Obama’s pushing of homosexuality and the widespread acceptance of it is just one symptom of America’s rejection of the Word of God. Since the Roe vs. Wade ruling in 1973, U.S. doctors have killed about 55 million unwanted babies. These innocent and defenseless babies have been denied life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Their tiny bodies have been thrown in the garbage and tossed out or incinerated with the clinical trash. In the U.S., Planned Parenthood doctors by themselves killed more than 300,000 babies in 2013 and President Obama stood before the group and said, “God bless you” (Ex. 20:13; 21:22-25; Prov. 6:16-17; Jer. 32:35).
Gambling is condemned in the Bible under the subjects of covetousness, greed, materialism and the love of money (Ex. 20:17; Prov. 15:27; Eph. 4:19; I Tim. 6:10). It was once considered foolishness, preying on the poor, a rip off; and a criminal activity associated with prostitution, political corruption and the mafia. But America has rejected these Bible-based teachings. Some even estimate that as much as one-third of our money flows through the gambling industry. Sadly, large segments of this once sinful, illegal activity are being run as lotteries by state governments that say they need the revenue.
Drug abuse is listed as one of six major sins that will be prominent during the Tribulation Period (Rev. 9:20-21). Those who use drugs will refuse to repent and they will ultimately wind up in the lake of fire. Cocaine use has already become a national tragedy. The federal government has not legalized marijuana use, but two states, Colorado and Washington, have legalized it for recreational purposes; about a dozen other states are discussing legalizing it for recreational purposes.
Many more states have legalized it for medicinal use; President Obama has admitted that he used it; he has made light of it by comparing it to taking a drink of alcohol; Attorney Gen. Holder has decided not to use federal laws to prosecute it in Colorado and Washington, and he has come out in favor of lighter prison sentences for non-violent drug dealers. This is another case of the U.S. ignoring what the Bible says and the lives of multitudes are being ruined (many for eternity).
Political corruption is a disgrace to any nation (Prov.14:34; 29:2) and the acceptance of it is a sure sign that the people have no regard for the Commandments of God (Ex.20:1-17). A usurper who uses aliases, a stolen Social Security number, a forged birth certificate, a forged Selective Service card; who hid his school records and his travel records; who habitually lies, deceives, and promotes abominations to God sits in the White House with the approval of a major political party, most of the mainstream media and many church goers. His unrighteousness and the widespread acceptance of sin is a clear indication of the spiritual darkness that now hovers over America.
Anti-Semitism is one of our greatest sins and the fact that it is rampant in the church makes it even worse. God has placed Scriptures, seminaries and true believers all over the U.S. and there is no excuse for hatred of the Jews in the church. It is not that the church doesn’t have the will of God. It is that so many church members have chosen to be willingly ignorant, reject or ignore what it says. Many blindly place denominational doctrine before the Word of God.
It is clear that God made an everlasting covenant to give all the land of Canaan to Israel for an everlasting possession (Gen.17:7-8); that the gifts and calling of God are without repentance (Rom. 11:29); that God has not cast away Israel (Rom. 11:1-2); that all Israel will be saved (Rom. 11:26-28); that the Jews are God’s people even in the latter days and latter years (Ezek. 38:8, 16); that the Jews will still be God’s people when the battle of Armageddon takes place (Joel 3:2); that Israel will be under the New Covenant (Jer. 31:31-37; Heb. 8:8) and more; and yet, many in the church choose to ignore what the Bible says and their hatred of Israel is causing them to lead the vast majority of humanity astray. They have the will of God (John 3:19), but they prefer to replace it with their own false doctrine and thereby they are without excuse.
I don’t know where it is, but God has a red line and the ink won’t disappear unless there is repentance in the church.
