1 Corinthians 6:9-10:
9 Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, 10 or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people—none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God.
Those who live and practice a life of sin will not inherit the Kingdom of God irrespective of public opinion, political correctness, fancy labels shrouded with rainbows, or human rationalization. Furthermore, the Judeo/Christian community is committing a great injustice to those engaged in sin by embracing the wicked behavior under the guise of “Tolerance”.
Without the truth of sin being revealed within the heart of a sinner, there is no conviction.
Without conviction there is no repentance.
Without repentance there is no forgiveness.
Without forgiveness there is no reconciliation.
Without reconciliation there is no salvation.
Without salvation the sinners destiny is eternal damnation.
It is NOT the ramblings of religious bigotry or homophobic retorts from right wing zealots that is at the center of controversy here. It is a reality that sin has no place in the presence of a righteous God. Let me illustrate this further.
The above mentioned scripture in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 includes homosexual and heterosexual behavior as well. It also focuses on sexual sin, thievery, and those who are abusive. Therefore, embracing any of these sins as something other than what it truly is – is unacceptable and heresy to the Judeo/Christian faith. Consider the following…
Have you ever had a good friend caught up in an adulterous affair? Do you hate or want to harm that person engaged in sin? Absolutely NOT! Most likely you are disappointed and concerned. Although your friendship has not changed, it is strained by the bad behavior for you know that your friend is doing that which is wrong. Furthermore, to appease your friend, would you think about establishing an “Adultery Pride Day” event each year or try to establish national and corporate policies to support this behavior? Absolutely NOT!
10 You have trusted in your wickedness
and have said, 'No one sees me.'
Your wisdom and knowledge mislead you
when you say to yourself,
'I am, and there is none besides me.'
11 Disaster will come upon you,
and you will not know how to conjure it away.
A calamity will fall upon you
that you cannot ward off with a ransom;
a catastrophe you cannot foresee
will suddenly come upon you.
This country is on the road towards God’s judgment as God turns his back on this nation as we have with him. When the devastation hits, it will take out the good and the wicked. The perfect storm is approaching from multiples sources and directions. However, this nation is too blinded by its sin to see the obvious. It is my hope and prayer that you will take this warning to heart for SIN is SIN and needs to be labeled accordingly.
