Wages of sin is death. When nations issue gay marriage laws, they stand against the Word of God. The very act of issuing pro-gay marriage laws is a crime against God. And the Kingdom of God, like any other government has laws and law enforcers, and it dispenses punishment. Those in the judiciary system and government officials should be most equipped to understand how nations work. When European nations made gay marriage legal, this very act was in violation of the Law of God. The Kingdom of God will enforce its laws against governments of the world that directly violate the Law of God, especially something as central as homosexuality. Bible has zero tolerance for homosexuality and gay marriage. That is why the title of Jesus Christ is King of kings and the LORD of lords. All the “kings” (president, chancellor, prime minister, etc.) are under the absolute monarchy authority of Jesus Christ, who is King of kings. Thus, when European nations legalized gay marriage/homosexuality, they violated the Law of God through this very legislative act, and the Kingdom of God will enforce the Law of God and punish the violators (that is, nations that issued pro-gay marriage laws). Thus, God’s punishment has been taking peace away from the land, increasing poverty and violence in the land, and bringing death to the area. If you read the Holy Bible, these are the ways God enforces the Law of God; God is consistent throughout history.
It seems like it is impossible to turn on TV, these days, without witnessing some horrible crime. Today was no exception. See what happened today that captured the national attention:
A man shot and killed journalists on live TV, as to show the world that His life is worth “a damn.” It is sad and tragic that people find increasingly violent ways to show the world that their lives are worth something.
Of course, the Bible shows us that our lives have value when we accept Jesus Christ and we become children of God by being born-again. Jesus Christ gives new identity for those who accept Jesus Christ as God and Savior.
In the good old days, when America respected the Bible and prayed in the schools and other social settings, there was less “crazy” violence. But as American society became more and more secularized, not only did American society become more violent, but the nature of violence took on a whole new tone and texture. Parents killing children. Children killing parents. People killing in movie theaters. Now, people killing on live TV, as to create their own “snuff film”.
Is this societal development unexpected and irrational?
For Christians, such “crazy” developments are rational and expected, because the wages of sin is death, and society that intentionally excludes the Word of God will become more and more violent and “crazy.”
In Matthew 11:28-29, Jesus Christ promises: “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.”
Mr. Vester Flanagan would have found rest for his soul with Jesus Christ in his heart … but unfortunately, Mr. Flanagan had the misfortune of living in 2015 America, where speaking about Jesus Christ in the public space is socially unacceptable, if not illegal in some settings. When evangelism becomes “hate crime”, the weary souls become more and more weary, and the society erupts into violence and chaos.
In a direct way, the United States Supreme Court decision to force all Americans to accept gay marriage is directly responsible for the perpetuation of violence in society. A society which stands against the Bible and the morality of the Bible will descend into chaos and violence. This is an absolute certainly.
When Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, and Linsey Graham says, “Just obey the law, damn it!” (in effect!) and give credence and authority to the United States Supreme Court to oppose the Bible publicly and officially, the Republican Party and its representatives are directly responsible for this very violence and all the other exponentially more horrific violence that is most absolutely certain to come in the future in all 50 United States.
When you take Christ out of 50 states, officially by law, and force all 50 states to oppose the Bible and Bible morality (in the case of gay marriage) by the force of national law, you have to expect God to punish the nation.
I see why you are asking this question. It seems like some TV preachers are saying that we are to treat homosexuals more like victims rather than criminals. Although for all of Christian history, homosexuals have been arrested and imprisoned, today’s preachers (even so-called evangelical preachers) do not seem to espouse this position of historic Christianity. They seem to be soft – very soft – on homosexuality. So, you are asking, “If such men of God are soft on homosexuality, you should be, too.” Well, remember, Pope is not the authority, the Bible is. In the same way, these so-called evangelical preachers are not the ultimate authority; rather, the Bible is. The preachers who are soft on homosexuality have been negatively influenced by those who oppose God. The Presbyterian Church (USA) and the United Methodist Church (UMC) have embraced homosexuals, although the Bible condemns homosexuality and homosexuals. They have turned their back on 2000 years of Christian position. They are trying to persuade you that they are right, and the Bible is wrong. The fundamental question you must ask yourself is: Can they allow you to enter eternal life in Heaven? Obviously, only Christ can do that, so they cannot. And Christ has given the Bible as our ultimate guide for salvation. Even if all the preachers and all the churches say homosexuality is okay and that we should protect homosexuals, they would be wrong, simply because the Bible exists and the Bible condemns homosexuality (the act) and homosexuals (the people), both in the Old Testament and the New Testament. God will enforce His Law with His Holy Angels. God needs no humans to do that. Martin Luther knew this, and that is why in 1517, Martin Luther stood against 100% of the churches in existence at his time, because he knew that 100% of them were wrong to say that justification was not by faith. His courageous act in standing up for the Bible, even though he stood alone, forced the churches to re-examine the Bible and some came back to the Bible position. It is possible for 100% of the churches in a country to be wrong. That is what is happening in America. Although we are not at 100%, more and more churches are falling into apostasy and saying that homosexuals are acceptable to God. No. homosexuals are not acceptable to God. When a homosexual comes to worship at your church, you are to prohibit (not allow) the practicing homosexual to enter your church and worship. God does not accept worship services of churches that officially tolerate the presence of ACTIVE homosexuals in their worship. St. Paul was clear about this attitude toward homosexuals in the New Testament. Homosexuality is a crime in the Bible, and homosexuals should be arrested like murderers. In fact, homosexuality is a worse crime than murder in the Law of God, and God expects every nation in the world to uphold this essential law. So, to answer your question, NO, God has not changed. And God has not changed His position against homosexuality and homosexuals. If He had, he would have explicitly let us know in the New Testament.
Former US President Jimmy Carter is suffering a lot. And since he has officially declared his pro-gay marriage position to the world and belittled Jesus Christ by saying that Jesus Christ would, too, we can safely understand former US President Jimmy Carter’s suffering as the result of his insulting Jesus Christ and opposing the Bible. The Holy Bible has zero tolerance for gay marriage and homosexuality. Any nation that allows them will be punished by God, because this is the principle that is firmly established in the Bible. Western nations’ economic woes can be seen as a part of God’s punishment of nations that allow gay marriage:
The very act of allowing gay marriage by law offends God, according to the Bible. God’s law is the standard for all laws around the world, including laws for other nations and other religions. Certainly, Christian nations must abide by God’s Law as outlined in the Holy Bible.
God taking away peace from the Middle East can be seen as a part of God’s punishment of Western Nations that allow gay marriage by law in opposition to God’s Law as found in the Bible. This trouble in the Middle East will likely lead to World War 3, that will involve nuclear weapons and death of hundreds of millions of lives or more.
Why? Wages of sin is death. This principle is very clear in the Holy Bible. Obeying and following the Holy Bible is the way to life. Opposing God’s Word is a way to death – both physical and spiritual.
Jimmy Carter is facing physical death because he opposes God’s Word. Unfortunately, he does not fear God who can kill the body and throw the soul into eternal damnation in Hell.
So, YES, unless Former US President Jimmy Carter repents of his crime against God and declare homosexuality and gay marriage as being opposed to the Word of God, it is 100% certain that Jimmy Carter will suffer eternity in the Eternal Holocaust, that is Hell.
If you support gay marriage laws of your country, you too should not be surprised if you suddenly get cancer, then suffer tremendously, and die only to go to eternal Holocaust in Hell for everlasting pain and suffering, that is exponentially greater than any pain that cancer can inflict on you.
Modern Secular Humanism has influenced the heart of American Christianity, unfortunately. It is the Humanistic Worldview that states that everyone in the world should be loved and everyone in the world should be helped. You hear even the so-called Bible-believing pastors saying things like, “God loves everyone!” or “God wants to save everyone!” This is just untrue, when you read the Bible. These so-called Bible-believing preachers have been influenced by Modern Secular Humanism that places human beings at the center of everything. America’s Christianity needs to go back to the Bible and see what the Bible is teaching. The Holy Bible clearly shows that God does not want everyone to be saved, and God does refuse to send evangelists/missionaries to some people. Bible is about God and centralizes the glory of God, but Secular Humanism is elevates the people and the needs of the people as the most important. God built Hell, a place of eternal damnation where some people go to suffer eternal and infinite torture, because this brings God glory and this pleases God. God also is glorified when those who humble themselves before the Word of God and accept Jesus Christ as their personal LORD and Savior go to eternal life in Heaven, to enjoy the eternal bliss of eternal paradise. God receives glory from both: people going to Eternal Holocaust in Hell, and people going to eternal life in Heaven. In other words, God wants some people to go to Hell and some people to go to Heaven. What people does God want to go to Hell? Those who reject Jesus Christ as their personal LORD God and Savior. In short, God is happy when those who reject the divinity of Jesus Christ go to suffer in the Eternal Torture Chamber of Hell. This concept is clearly outlined all over the New Testament, from the Book of Matthew to the Book of Revelations. Have a look at Luke 16:19-31. This Bible passage clearly shows that God takes pleasure in sending people who reject Jesus Christ into Hell, and their relatives as well. If you are influenced by Secular Humanism, then you will want to send missionaries/evangelists to the relatives of the Rich Man, but then, this is because you do not have a Christian worldview; rather, you have a Secular Humanistic Worldview, like a lot of the unbiblical preaches in America’s churches of today. Why do you think that America is so far away from the Bible? Because many of America’s pastors have become agents of Secular Humanism, rather than Servants of God, upholding the principles of the Word of God, which is the Bible.
Absolutely! The Pharisees were Zionists and today’s descendants of the Pharisees, who are leaders of Rabbinic Judaism around the world, are Zionists. How many Rabbinic Jews have you met who are not Zionists? The Pharisees hated Jesus Christ because Jesus Christ was anti-Zionists and attacked Jewish cities and the Jerusalem Temple. The Pharisees believed that Israel was the Chosen Nation of God and that was the most important thing to emphasize. They were willing to kill anyone who attacked their Zion theology. Do you see the correlation between the Pharisees and today’s American Christian Zionists? They are the same kind of people who emphasize the same kind of things. If Jesus Christ came to America today and say the same things He said in the New Testament (obviously, Christ wants us to preach the Gospels, literally!), then Jesus Christ would be killed by these so-called Christian Zionists who want to protect Jewish Israel because it is “Chosen Nation”. Jesus Christ (or His representatives on earth, like St. Stephen) would be killed by these so-called Christian Zionists on the very same principles. This is why Christian Zionism is absolutely wrong from the Bible perspective. Jesus Christ never told anyone to support the Jewish state of Israel, anywhere in the Gospels, because Jesus Christ wanted His disciples to oppose Zionism, Jerusalem, and Jewish Israel. Now, these Christian Zionists are directly opposed to the Gospels and the teachings of Jesus Christ. Of course, they are like the Pharisees of the Gospels who kill Jesus Christ and disciples of Jesus Christ in order to protect the Jewish nation of Israel. If you are a Christian Zionist, you must repent and turn back to the Lord Jesus Christ and His teaching in the Gospels, because if you are not for Him, you are against Him. You are siding with Christ’s enemies, the very people who killed Jesus Christ in order to protect Zionist principles and the Jewish nation of Israel.
Yes, they are wrong to support Jewish state of Israel, that does not recognize that Jesus Christ is God and Savior. The New Testament is very clear that Jewish Jerusalem kills the prophets and representatives of the God of the Bible. The New Testament curses Jewish cities. Nowhere in the Gospels did Jesus Christ tell his disciples or Christians to support Jewish nation of Israel. St. Paul condemns Jewish influence on Christianity and condemns those who elevate Jewish influence in Christianity to eternal damnation in the Book of Galatians, following the anti-Judaism and anti-Jewish nation emphasis of Jesus Christ in the Gospels. Any preacher, evangelical or not, who supports Jewish nation of Israel is wrong in light of the teachings of the Bible. Martin Luther started the Reformation in 1517 to protest against corruption in the church, where so-called leaders of the church were teaching against the Bible. Preachers who preach supporting the Jewish nation of Israel are no better than the pope, who taught contrary to the Bible. They must repent or they will go to eternal damnation in Hell, whether they are evangelical or not. Everyone, including so-called evangelical leaders (or “pope” of the evangelicals) must submit to the Word of God. Bible is the Word of God, and Jesus Christ clearly condemns Jerusalem and Jewish cities and curses them to destruction. Any so-called Christian leader who supports Jewish nation of Israel stands against the Bible and Jesus Christ. They are wrong, and Jesus Christ is right. They are not god. And they are not “good” if they stand against the New Testament curse of Jerusalem and Jewish cities.
No. Jesus Christ always opposed Jewish cities and Jerusalem in the Gospels. Jesus Christ never told His disciples to support Israel as a political or religious entity. In fact, early Christians rejected Israel because Judaism rejected Jesus Christ. The complete split between Judaism and Christianity came early, because the leaders of Judaism in all denominations (Pharisees, Sadducees, Herodians, Temple priests) all rejected Jesus Christ as the Messiah. Furthermore, they all worked to have Jesus Christ killed. That is why Jesus Christ did not support Jewish Jerusalem or Jewish Israel. Jesus Christ does condemn Jewish cities and Jerusalem and that is clear in the Gospels. So, Christians are not allowed to support the Jewish state of Israel, if they want to follow Jesus Christ as His disciples and keep to the spirit and the letter of the Christian Gospels.
Attempted murder is a serious charge, and your question is, therefore, a serious question. You are asking if the Pharisees, who were the leaders of the synagogues at the time of Jesus Christ’s ministry on earth, ever plot to kill Jesus Christ. We are talking about pre-meditated murder in the first degree here. Did the Pharisees attempt a pre-meditated murder in the first degree with Jesus Christ? What do you think? Now, let’s look at the Bible for the answer. Mark 3:6 states: “Then the Pharisees went out and began to plot with the Herodians how they might kill Jesus.” You see, folks. It’s in clear print! Since the invention of the printing press, everyday, average folk can read the Bible and e-Verify! The Holy Bible clearly states that the Pharisees, who are the leaders of the synagogues, plotted to kill Jesus Christ. Who did they plot with? They plotted with Herodians. Who are the Herodians? They are those who supported the kingship of King Herod and his dynasty. In other words, Jewish religious leaders plotted with the national ruling party to have Jesus Christ killed. Now, in light of this, does it not puzzle you to see some so-called Christians trying to support the Jewish nation of Israel? How could some so-called Christian leaders publicly declare support of Judaism or Jewish nation? It seems inconsistent with the teachings of the New Testament….
Obviously, cancer brings much suffering. It can be days, but most likely, it will be months of suffering or years of suffering before the cancer-ridden body expires. So, Mr. Carter has some time to repent. If Mr. Carter repents and again upholds the Bible position, he could go to Hell. But you are asking about Mr. Carter dying without changing his position of supporting gay marriage laws of the United States of America. The Bible is clear on the issue of homosexuality. Anybody with an elementary education can see that God killed every living organism in Sodom and Gomorrah because of homosexuality. The New Testament attacks homosexuality in no unclear terms. The Bible has zero tolerance for homosexuality. In this regard, it is safe to conclude that anyone (including Mr. Carter) will go to Hell, if he does not repent. It’s like any law. If you rob a liquor store, then you will go to jail, if you get caught. With God, everyone gets caught; no one falls through the cracks. Anyone who supports USA gay marriage laws will go to eternal damnation in Hell. The New Testament emphasizes that the fear of the LORD is beginning of wisdom. In the New Testament, Jesus Christ demands that people fear God, because God can (and will!) kill the body and send people to Hell (eternal damnation in eternal Hellfire). In Matthew 10:28, Jesus Christ demands: “Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.” Many TV evangelists are wrong to say that God of the New Testament is to be loved, but not to be feared. The New Testament demands that Christians fear God. Christians must remember that Jesus Christ who is God will kill your physical body through cancer, car accident, other disease, natural disasters, etc., when you do not submit to God’s Law, and Jesus Christ will send you to eternal damnation in eternal Hellfire, if you do not repent and turn away from gay marriage law support to supporting the Holy Bible’s opposition against homosexuality in all forms.
