I am grieved.

Yesterday, the President of the United States affirmed his personal belief that homosexuals should be able to marry. This doesn’t surprise me or offend me. In America, people are free to believe whatever they want to believe.  I am also not making a statement as to whether or not the government should define the terms of marriage, plenty of others are doing that. No, I am grieved because our President used his “Christianity” as a deciding factor in his decision process.

To quote, 

“You know, we are both practicing Christians and obviously this position may be considered to put us at odds with the views of others but, you know, when we think about our faith, the thing at root that we think about is, not only Christ sacrificing himself on our behalf, but it's also the Golden Rule, you know, treat others the way you would want to be treated. And I think that's what we try to impart to our kids and that's what motivates me as president and I figure the most consistent I can be in being true to those precepts, the better I'll be as a as a dad and a husband and, hopefully, the better I'll be as president." - President Obama

President Obama’s statement is an indicator of something that is seriously wrong with the church in America today. That an endorsement of the homosexual lifestyle can come from “Christian” beliefs in our day and age under the guise of the “Golden Rule” is reprehensible. That the “Gospel” of Jesus Christ has become so watered down that a “Christian” could make such a statement with impunity is remarkable. That there are perhaps millions of “Christians”, “Churches” and thousands of “Leaders” in the church today that will support and have supported such a statement is the real tragedy. 

Sinners sin, it’s literally in their (sinful) nature. The depths of human depravity are well documented. But in the Gospel and with the people of God there is supposed to be a counterbalance to the darkness. Jesus called the church the LIGHT of the world. 

Put simply, homosexuality is a SIN. If you think or believe differently, you are WRONG. In fact, any sexual activity outside the covenant of marriage is called “fornication” and expressly forbidden by the God of the Bible. But sexual activity where men are attracted to men and women attracted to women is a perversion of God’s design and an abomination in the sight of God. 

In our culture today, to make such a statement makes me hateful, bigoted and “homophobic”. if that is the price of agreement with God, so be it. 

But in reality, I do not hate sinners, I love them. I love them so much in fact that I tell them the TRUTH. The truth is that if you continue to live in your sin and defy God with your lifestyle, you will go to HELL. That is the “Golden Rule” in action. If I was heading straight to hell because of my lifestyle, I would want someone to warn me!

I am not bigoted and I am certainly not “homophobic”. Just because I disagree with homosexuals does NOT make me afraid of them. If I am "homophobic" for denouncing homosexuality, YOU are "Christophobic" for not living righteously & standing for the truth!

I believe that It’s time we feared God more than the opinions of men. So I am going on the offense and not only calling out homosexuals, but also those that approve of their behavior. Not only is it wrong to sin and break God’s righteous standard, it’s also wrong to approve of sinful behavior. If you honestly think that you can approve of what God HATES and still make Heaven, you are sorely deceived. To call yourself a Christian while approving of what God hates under the banner of “grace” & “love” is high treason against Heaven.


  • Any “Church” that endorses what God hates or embraces compromise in our sin-soaked culture is an apostate institution, long bereft of any true godly authority.
  • Any “Leader” without the testicular fortitude to call out evil for what it is (evil) is a coward, deserving of the harshest judgment for leading the innocent to slaughter.
  • Any “Christian” that claims to be a “Christian” while rejecting the standards laid down by God is a reprobate, far from God.
Real depravity or what the Bible calls a “debased mind” is not only found in sinning, but ENDORSING sinful behavior. Homosexuals are going to hell, no matter what Obama says (I Cor 6:9). But so are the cowardly "Christians" that endorse their sin (Rev 21:8).

“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.” Romans 1:28-32
