“I refuse to insult God and grieve the Holy Spirit by my ‘just going to church.’”

What I am about to share is largely due, though not entirely, to the following conversation with a gay activist.

Gay-activist: We have liberals, the press, and society on our side. You have neither the faith nor the strength to fight us, so you might as well just surrender now. We have no intention of stopping until every Christian is discredited and silenced.

Me: Careful. You are messing with the wrong Christian.

Gay-activist: Whoa! Didn’t Jesus tell you to turn the other cheek?

Me: Yes, He did. However, when it comes down to fighting for lost souls, standing in the gap and speaking the truth about sexual sin, I will not cower in the face of homosexual intimidation. I will endure your harsh rhetoric, insults, and threats but I will not sidestep either truth or grace, being purposed to speak clear truth about this issue and extend grace toward every person – yourself included.

Did you know if you believe that homosexual practice is a sin and what many refer to as the gay lifestyle falls far short of God’s perfect intent for any man or woman in this world, you are an extremist?

There is no question, no doubt the world has changed and right along with those that have changed are – churches (places where people gather). Not, The Church, The Body of Christ – but churches.

Regrettably and tragically, many have become scared speechless and have surrendered to culture because they refuse, and are afraid, of looking at things from God’s standpoint.

The LGBTQ+ agenda is a fundamental issue that no one can afford to ignore. Today liberal judges and courts are making decisions solely based on the shifting moral sands and ever changing winds of society and our culture.

This is the kind of activist and activism the Apostle warned us about…

“They mouth empty, boastful words and, by appealing to lustful desires of sinful human nature, they entice people who are just escaping from those who live in error. They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity – for a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him” (2 Peter 2:18-19).

Admittedly, there is great division over the issue of homosexual practice which exists in our families, churches, and in our nation. And it is growing.

The Bible is abundantly clear in telling us that God is both unchanging and unmovable. He does not have to tune-in to check a poll on CNN or Fox News to see what He ought to consider righteous behavior for this week. Sir, Madam, just because you have changed does not mean that God has as well.

There are actually those that are sitting around wringing their hands and thinking, “This gay thing is just a lost cause.” Nonsense, it is not. Clearly, those in the “let’s wring our hands” do not know God. They may have a head knowledge of Him but they do not know Him.

So, what should we do? We have no time to lose.

“The people who know their God will be strong and take action” (Daniel 11:32).

Frankly, we do not need to pray and ask God for new strategies. We need to act upon, if not return to, and do what we know we should have been doing all along.

1. First and foremost, we need to repent and ask God to forgive us for our rebellion and disobedience.

2. Pray, intercede for the soul of America like we’ve never prayed before.

3. Get educated. There is no excuse for not applying the truth of Scripture to this issue and to the lives of those with whom you come into contact.

4. Find your voice. Many are hearing more from the gay lobby than they are the Body of Christ.

“Come to church, come to church, come to church!” “Go to church, go to church, go to church!”

How about, “BE THE CHURCH!”

Somewhere along the line we lost our Biblical footing, and we abdicated our authority – the Word of God. Take it back!

Today, right now…

*Pray, “Oh God, revive Your church!”

*Renew your commitment to Biblical authority.

*God created male and female. Return to what God has stated it was in the beginning.

*Recommit to authentic, Biblical marriage.

*Recommit and reconnect to Biblical morality.

*Go with God’s Word in the power of God’s Spirit – speak up, stand up for what is right!

Our fight is not against flesh and blood, but Satan and his degenerate, degrading ways. If we do not fight individually and collectively, we will lose our culture. God is counting on US.

I have not done God a big favor simply because I showed up for church.
