sin and righteousness

America’s Award-Winning President

I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman. Now, for me as a Christian, it’s also a sacred union. God’s in the mix.” (Barack Obama – April 17th, 2008)

7 years later…

America’s 44th President can add another award to his trophy case thanks to being voted as “Out” magazine’s 2015 “Ally” of the Year.

The “Ally” award is given to an individual who has championed the “rights” of LGBT’s…which definitely includes the new “legalization” of homosexual marriage. And sadly, there’s very few politicians that come even close to rivaling the President’s political agenda in this area of light for darkness and darkness for light (Isaiah 5:20).

I’m sure the President is so proud of his award…err, make that a certain sort of pride in his award.

I wonder if President Obama repeated the whole “God’s in the mix” thing during his acceptance speech? EA

It is an abomination for kings to commit wickedness, for a throne is established by righteousness.” (Proverbs 16:12)

When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when a wicked man rules, the people groan.” (Proverbs 29:2)

Do we have a direct line to the Divine when it comes to morality?

Hillary Clinton, in a recent interview about the evolution of her view on homosexual marriage with Terry Gross, host of NPR’s “Fresh Air”,  said:

One of my big problems right now is that too many people believe they have a direct line to the divine and they never want to change their mind about anything,

Well one of my big problems with that is when it comes to homosexual marriage and its morality we do have a direct line to the divine – it’s called the word of God (a.k.a. the Bible).

As surely as the word of God reveals his righteousness (Romans 1:16-17) it also reveals the sin that violates it (1 John 5:17). And as surely as the word of God contains the answer to sin (1 John 2:1) it also contains the sins that create the need for an answer (Romans 1:18-32; Galatians 5:13-26; Colossians 3:1-10; Revelation 21:5-8, 22:10-15) which includes the sin of homosexuality.

The problem doesn’t come from not knowing whether or not we have “a direct line to the divine” – it’s that people are ignoring what they hear when they pick up the phone! EA 

Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9-11)
