Read These Words

Think about what is happening in America today and read these words from Jeremiah chapter 8. Liberal (progressive) "Christian" churches twist the meaning of scripture calling good what God says is evil. Everyone thinks they are Christian even though they ignore God, because they have listened to the teachers in America--the media, "intellectuals", science and liberal church leaders. Here is what God says:

"Why do these people keep going along their self-destructive path, refusing to turn back, even though I have warned them? I listen to their conversations, and what do I hear? Is anyone sorry for sin? Does anyone say, 'What terrible thing have I done'? No! All are running down the path of sin as swiftly as a horse rushing into battle!" - Jeremiah 8:5-7

"How can you say, 'We are wise because we have the law of the LORD,' when your teachers have twisted it so badly? These wise teachers will be shamed by exile for their sin, for they have rejected the word of the LORD." - Jeremiah 8:8,9

America turn back to the Lord! That is a cry for you individually. Listen to the word of God. Turn away from homosexual marriage and acceptance of homosexual behavior as right and good. Turn away from abortion... the sacrifice of children on the alter of the god of convenience. Turn away from divorce... the relationship between a husband and wife is the image of Jesus' relationship with the body of all believers. Turn away from fornication (sex outside of marriage). Turn away from inclusiveness that excludes God. There are many that call inclusiveness, with no limits, to be the desire of God... but they are the teachers who are twisting God's word and leading you away God. Inclusiveness is evil if it includes acceptance of sin as not being evil in God's eyes.

God's gift of salvation includes everyone. No one is excluded from this gift. If anyone accepts God's gift, it is theirs. That is the ultimate inclusiveness. But leading someone to believe they are saved and will enter heaven, when they do not desire to reject sin, is teaching a twisted gospel that leads to destruction.

Montel Williams Reveals His Prejudice & Hostility

I did not see the recent Montel Williams show on which gays who have left the homosexual lifestyle were the topic. But I find what went on off-camera to be very interesting. If you watch shows such as Montel to learn something and become better informed, you are being totally mislead. They are not about informing, but instead are about pushing a certain viewpoint. They are not about an open discussion of the issues and finding truth... they want to hide the truth if it does not match what they want to believe. The following is quoted from a newsletter put out by Exodus International.

Montel Williams Reveals Prejudice & Hostility Towards Former Homosexuals

"Montel Williams reveals his bias and hostility towards former homosexuals on today’s show, 'Homosexuality . . . Can it be Cured?' Alan Chambers, President of Exodus International, accepted an invitation to discuss homosexuality and the option of change in the hopes that it would bring a message of hope to a broader audience, but instead, found himself the target of malicious questions, unfair accusations and open hostility.

Former Exodus Board Member, Tom Cole, and his wife Donna, both former homosexuals, were slated to be guests as well, but were thrown off the show for having told Montel Williams that their stories were just as valid as those on the pro-gay side of the argument. Williams became irate, immediately removed them from the panel and had them thrown off the studio premises.

Alan Chambers then found himself the lone voice opposing the views of four guests representing the other side of the debate. The only other former homosexual was placed in the audience and allowed only a short amount of speaking time.

On today’s show, Montel Williams promotes the documentary, 'Abomination: Homosexuality and the Ex-Gay Movement.' The film, produced by Alicia Salzer, the director of William’s after-care program, is an inaccurate portrayal of former homosexuals and shows individuals undergoing shock therapy in order to be 'cured' of their homosexuality.

Chambers commented on today’s show, 'The world is full of many, like Montel Williams, who are hostile to our message. Yet it does not change the fact that thousands of us have experienced change through the power of Jesus Christ. We will continue to share the hope we have found and the freedom that is available to all.'"

Why Put Yourself Into A Place Of Sin?

If you are a guy, does it make sense to go to a strip bar if you do not want to break God's 7th commandment?

Jesus said that if you look with lust, you have committed adultery in your heart... and God looks at what is in our heart. So a guy going to a strip bar is putting himself directly in the center of a sitution in which he will lust, and will commit adultery of the heart and will break God's 7th commandment, Thou shall not commit adulterty.

But everyone knows going to a strip bar is not a good idea. But there is something else we do that places us directly in the center of temptations that lead us to break another of God's commandments. It is a commandment we often forget. The 10th commandment. Thou shall not covet.

What is television all about? Yes, sex and lust immediately comes to mind. Yes, violence comes to mind. Yes, using the name of God as a cuss word comes to mind. But what television is about is getting you to covet. Advertsing pays for television, and the objective of advertising is to get you to want something... to really want it. To really covet it. To watch television is to voluntarily put yourself into a situation in which every possible effort will be made to get you to break God's law. To covet. It's a no win situation.
