The statement made this week by President Obama that he is agreeable to homosexual marriages has caused a stir around the country. There are those who say he was forced to come out with his true feelings due to a recent interview with Vice President Joe Biden on NBC’s “Meet the Press” when he said he was “fully comfortable” with homosexual marriage.
I don’t think this situation is all that it appears to be. As believers in the 21st century, we must learn to read through the lines, to not trust everything we hear and to dig deeper. If we do not do our homework we will be swayed by every whim.
I see this as a calculated move to deepen the chasm between bible believing evangelical Christians and those who have agreed to everything but the sale of their souls to get along with the culture, the emerging church and the post-modern philosophy.
For what purpose would a move like this come into being? Could it be a part of an agenda, albeit, a veiled and deceitful one? More and more believers who stand on the Word of Truth are being labeled as unloving and haters. We cannot say publically that we feel homosexuality is a sin without being inundated with accusations that we do not know how to love. If we explain why, we are seen as hateful and politically incorrect.
Could it be that the presidents move on the issue is not just about votes, though he will get some for this effort; but it is more about Hegelian Dialectic; moving people groups into separated territories to later demolish those who are most resistant?
In the early days of the 3rd Reich, Hitler charmed the people. He also charmed the churches who could not wait to get behind him for a better Germany. No one bothered to understand where this man was coming from, and when they did- they were disbelieved or quickly quieted.
I am not asserting that this situation is exactly the same. What I am inferring is that this administration works like clockwork on its agenda. There are no surprises here. I see a possible purpose; to further divide the believing so that one day, the true church will be easily persecuted and driven underground. I don’t think it is in the distant future either. Could it be possible?
As in the early days of genocides all over the world, people groups are singled out by their governments as generally “uncooperative,” or different, so that inferences can publically be made, that they are harming the purpose of the leaders, who of course, have only the good of the people in mind. This continues until laws are passed outlawing these groups and finally, genocide becomes the solution, for the good of the masses. (See Daniel Goldhagen’s “Genocide, Worse Than War.” )
Bible believers who take God at his word are not a popular group these days. The rhetoric that we are closed-minded is coming from sources even in the free- thinking emergent church. We cramp their style by pointing out passages that need to be interpreted with the whole counsel of God, not singled out for a purpose more fitting for an agenda.
Hence, I believe we could be seeing the beginning of sanctioned persecution from our government. As days months and possibly years pass, anyone holding to the truth of Gods word will be considered resistant to what the government and (government churches) deem appropriate.
In the book, “Hitler’s Cross,” (everyone should read it) Erwin W. Lutzer poignantly bring this message.
“The date July 23, 1933. The young theologian was Dietrich Bonheoffer. In January of the same year, Hitler had been installed as chancellor of Germany. The very next day, this young man, who was not duped by Der Fuhrer’s intentions, gave a radio address in which he warned that when a people idolize a leader “the image of the leader will gradually become the image of the “misleader.” Thus the leader makes an idol of himself and mocks G-d. Before these last sentences were broadcast, Bonheoffer’s microphone was mysteriously switched off. “ ~Hitler’s Cross by Irwin Lutzer.
In light of Executive orders being penned and signed faster than an author puts his autograph on a book leaf at a book signing; Lutzer’s words are beginning to make sense.
On page 117 he writes: “With his place as a dictator assured, Hitler could make whatever laws he wished and mocked his seemingly powerless opposition. He had always regarded Protestants with contempt, saying of them, “You can do anything you want with them…They will submit… they are insignificant little people, submissive as dogs, and they sweat with embarrassment when you talk to them.” (emphasis added) ~Hitlers Cross by Erwin W. Lutzer
The new cultural playbooks are not hard to find if you dare read them. It is not the bible that drives government in this country anymore. Man’s wisdom, which is foolishness to God, has taken over every aspect of our lives.
I don’t think there is coincidence to this revelation by the president that he favors homosexual marriages. On the contrary, I think it could be part of a well-organized plan to demoralize our culture and begin the process of persecution against those who disagree with a supreme leader. You decide, but do your own homework first.
