A Divided Nation

President Obama’s admission yesterday that he does believe in same-sex marriage did not surprise many people, but it drew a line in the sand – dividing the nation in yet another way. It came at the same time that North Carolina became the 30th state in the Union to adopt a constitutional amendment declaring that marriage is solely a union between a man and a woman.  The polls show that the difference of opinion in the nation is very close to 50/50, with young people and their entertainment idols strongly supporting sexual diversity.  They do so because of their lack of knowledge of God’s Word, or even animosity to the Bible in general.

I got involved in a Facebook conversation last night when a friend posted that she was discouraged by the President’s decision. She was severely attacked by one of her “friends,” who called her ignorant and said she should wake up.

I posted an encouragement to her that she was right because she agreed with God’s Word.

The abusive writer then addressed me, claiming that throughout history people have invoked God’s word for whatever was convenient for them.  Of course he was right, but does the error of some people give the whole world the right to ignore God’s very clear teaching on the subject of homosexuality?  Certainly not!  I referred him to the Scripture list on our Prophecy Central “homosexuality” page.

He countered with, “Don’t start with me on ‘quotes from the bible.’”

I was tempted to “defend” the Bible. But I learned long ago that the Bible is sharper than a two-edged sword (Hebrews 4:12), and that we don’t need to defend it – just use it.  I posted a quotation from God’s Word.

How desperately our young people – and all of us – need to know and obey the Bible.  We need to heed the warning of Isaiah 5: 20.

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Let’s ask the Lord to send us a great end-times revival!

    AMEN! God Bless you really big for never ever compromising. Love the sinner, but hate the sin! I just hope we will get a new president, but not sure which one is right.. This life is becoming so difficult to stand “Our” ground on social issues. I am sure looking forward to our Lord’s return.

    Missing you and Barbara~~

    i dont recall seing any false prehiospes and here is my reason for my faith leading evolutionists are abandoning gradulism, and darwin, and this is why.now their are 2 types of evolution, micro, and macro. i definatley beleive in micro, micro evolution is the small changes between species, but with in the species wall, so you gotta be careful in your use of the general word of evolution. anyways, time for the fun to start.macro evlolution, pretty much if your talking about the evolution of animals to man and all of that, is dog turned into the cat over many steps and a long period of time.(dont get mad at me for using these animals, if you would like to pick your own animals, please fill in the spaces. i use dogs and cats, because we all can understand them.)the fossil record. their have literaly been millions of fossils discovered, and what i find interesting is that their has yet to be a transitional fossil found(the stages between the dog and the cat) 0 for any species. when darwin was theorizing, their were few fossils discovered, so he figured they would turn up in due time.also, they say they can judge the age of a fossil by the layer it is in. their have been verticle trees going through many layers at once. what you are trying to tell me, is it took millions if not billions of years for those layers to form and those trees didnt decay at all???ok, lets turn to rock dating. rock dating is incredibly complex, but i will try to explain it in a short amount of time. carbon 14 for instance, has a half life(it looses 50% of its molecules every) of 5700 years. carbon 12 in a rock or whatever you are measuring doesnt change. so you can measure the amount of age, based on the difference in ratios of c12 to c14. c14 can only be acuratley measured to about 50000 years. EVERY SINGLE THING, EVER TESTED WITH CARBON DATING HAS HAD A MEASURABLE AMOUNT OF CARBON 14. meaning it is less then 50000 years. other dating methods work the same way. ironicaly, you could take a fossil into 3 different labs, and come up with 3 different ages, millions if not billions of years apart. if you use 5 different methods, same lab, same fossil, you will get billions of years different.the big bang, was what, and explosion or whatever. if the big bang, before it expanded, was really their, then it would have been spinning. if it was spinning, then everything inside would be spinning same way when it finaly expanded. how come we have several planets in our solar system alone that spin backwards?if you got questions, arguments, comments, or concerns feel free to send them to if you want more like the stuff above. just ask, would be glad to help out.
