“What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.” ~ King Solomon, Ecclesiastes 1:9.

I pass this on with great sadness and a deep sigh. But it’s insightful, and we do well to pay close attention. And take heart friends. In this world we will have trouble, but Jesus the Christ has overcome the world.

Truth in Grace

The following excellent piece was written by Matt Barber and was found on WorldNetDaily:

Modern-day liberals – or “progressives” as they more discreetly prefer – labor under an awkward misconception; namely, that there is anything remotely “progressive” about the fundamental canons of their blind, secular-humanist faith. In fact, today’s liberalism is largely a sanitized retread of an antiquated mythology – one that significantly predates the only truly progressive movement: biblical Christianity.

While visiting the Rivermont Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Lynchburg, Va., a few weeks back, I heard a troubling, albeit thought-provoking, sermon. Pastor John Mabray addressed the ancient Canaanite practice of Baal worship and, though he didn’t reveal it by name, connected the dots to its present-day progeny: liberalism. Baal, the half-bull, half-man god of fertility, was the focal point of pagan idolatry in Semitic Israel until God revealed His monotheistic nature to Judaism’s forebears.

In his sermon, Pastor…

  1. Reactionary anti-gay bigot and Liberty Counsel attorney Matt Barber, in an open letter to a hypothetical gay teen son, on World Net Daily. More lies and hate from an extremist hatemonger!

    “You are being used. Adult homosexual activists with a political agenda are using you as a pawn to achieve selfish goals in a dangerous political game.

    You’re just a means to an end.

    They may have convinced themselves otherwise, but they don’t care about you. They don’t love you. They can’t. Their version of “love” is built on lies. It’s devoid of truth.

    Love without truth is hate.

    If you continue down this wide, empty path, make no mistake: it will not “get better.”

    It gets much, much worse.

    Consider, for instance, that according to the CDC this path will lead you, boys, to a one-in-five chance of contracting HIV/AIDS. The CDC also found that 64 percent of all syphilis cases strike “gay” males and that homosexual behavior leads to astronomical risk of nearly all other forms of STD.

    Even more startling is the fact that, according to the International Journal of Epidemiology (IJE), “[L]ife expectancy at age 20 years for gay and bisexual men is 8 to 20 years less than for all men.”

    Unnatural behaviors beget natural consequences. “The wages of sin is death.”

    But there is hope.

    Jesus loves you with a love that no human can fully grasp. This is true not because of your so-called “sexual orientation,” but, rather, it is true in spite of it.

    Jesus said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)

    Kids, take your sexual confusion – your struggle with sin – to Christ.

    No one else can give you rest.”

    Beautiful words there, Les, even in spite of your ad hominems that preceded them. Thank you for sharing them. They convey the most excellent message ever spoken to man and an invitation that remains open to you and yours.

    • In just a few years, you and your lot will be thought of like the people who were against equal rights for blacks or women. Your children and their children will be embarrassed that their parents and grandparents were on the wrong side of history. And when you face your Creator, you will have to explain why you ignored His teachings of love and justice, and why you twisted His words to preach hate and intolerance.

  3. I try not get caught up being concerned over what people think of me. After all, people think all manner of things, don’t they?

    I do, however, care very much about what my Creator thinks. In fact, I consider that a matter of life and death. If you’d like to elaborate on (1) which Creator you are speaking of, and (2) how you ascertain what his standards for judgment are, I’m willing to listen, consider your case, and possibly follow that line of thinking with you.

    Consider it an open invitation.

  5. One of the post made note of the difference between democrat and progressive . Progressives are in control of the democratic party , not all democrats are progressives. Terrell , we have been on this path for decades, does it seem to you the veil causing blindness has covered people’s discernment abilities relatively quickly?
