The Dividing Line

A dividing line is coming.  When the Lord will draw it, I’m not sure, but it is coming.  Each year the USA has begun a slow spiral down into the morass of immorality, relativism and perversion from the founding of our country over 200 years ago.  Today, it seems like a weekly event that the administration is not just walking away from our founding principles, but leaping along into oblivion.  Soon, maybe a year, maybe five years, but soon a line will be drawn and the Lord will not just rebuke our nation, but take it to its knees.

When Newsweek touted President Obama as the “gay President,” it seemed like it was an editorial way to sell subscriptions.  But on the White House website, the President has endorsed June as the LGBT month and fully supported the LGBT agenda.  NAACP has supported the agenda also.  This may mean that the President may lose some votes for November, but this is early enough in the process that the holy standard of God will be clouded in the misty eyes of those who want the President and his agenda for four more years.  Even J.C. Penny is advertising two fathers with shared children this week for Father’s Day.

I wonder how quickly Sodom and Gomorrah became the way they were described in Scripture (Gen. 19).  I wonder how quickly the Roman Empire became ambivalent to the LGBT agenda in the 300s – 400s A.D. before the fall in 476 A.D.  Does America think she can continue in her path of perverted immorality? 

Of course those who push the agenda and those who in the next few months and years will succumb to that agenda will be given over to accept and eventually embrace that agenda.  It’s recorded in Scripture.  Paul wrote to the Romans,

…although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22

Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man– and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. 24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

 26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.  27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;  29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, (Rom 1:21-29)

Because America is turning her back on God, God is giving her over to her own desires.  America no longer glorifies God and is not thankful for who she is before God.  God is holy and will allow the creature to choose against God.  God gives him over to his own lusts and sin has a perverting characteristic (Eph. 4:22), which we see in the LGBT agenda.  Are these people Jesus died for?  Yes!  Can they be forgiven, transformed and renewed?  Yes.  Do I want them in my church?  Yes.  I will accept them as they are AND want them to hear the liberating truth of the gospel to learn and walk in holiness.  I will not let the agenda be a controversy in God’s church.  The dividing line of holiness has been drawn in Scripture.  A dividing line of blessing and cursing may be coming soon to America.  Are you leading others to the right side?
