THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES FOR OUR ACTIONS! by Earl Sutton

 

In 1996 a grain ship, “Bright Field,” was heading down the Mississippi River near New Orleans, when it lost control, veered toward the shore and crashed into a riverside shopping mall. The impact demolished parts of the wharf and injured 116 people. According to the Coast Guard investigation, the ship’s owner and crew had failed to repair long-standing engine problems. This is a clear example of not doing what you should do and receiving the consequences of bad decisions.

            The Devil deceived Eve into thinking that there would be no consequences for eating the forbidden fruit (Gen. 3:1-7). God said, “But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, ye shall not eat of it lest ye die” (v.3) The Devil said, “Ye shall not surely die.” (v.4) Eve dilly-dallied with the temptation and contemplated the possibilities that the Devil had suggested and threw away all restrain and ate the fruit!  Why?  The Devil deceived her into thinking that there would be no consequences for sin.

            The Devil continues to lie to us today and tells our society that a little sin won’t hurt, a little indulgence is not a problem, a little transgression will never hurt anybody! The Devil tells us that we are only human and go ahead and enjoy sin. The Bible says, “The way of the transgressor is hard.” ( Prov. 13:15)

            Our society believes that it can live in disobedience to God’s will by practicing homosexuality and never suffer the consequences. The scriptures teach that there will be consequences for our actions. “Be not deceived: God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth unto his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption: but he that soweth unto the spirit shall of the spirit reap eternal life.” (Gal. 6:7-8) This basic principle applies to the physical world and spiritual realm as well. The word, “mocked” is a Greek word (mukterizete:) which means to turn one’s nose up at God. The point is that if a person sows to the flesh (homosexuality and sinful living) and turns up his nose at God, he shall go the way of all flesh, -- die and face the judgment of God where there will be consequences. (reap destruction – Gal. 6:8)

The scriptures emphasize the consequences of sin in other verses. Ezekiel said, “The soul that sinneth, it shall die.” (Ez. 18:4) Paul said, “The wages of sin is death.” (Rom. 6:23)  Over and over, again and again, the Bible under all circumstances, emphasizes that we reap what we sow and that sin is always followed by consequences.

            There is rebellion in the hearts and in the behavior of many people in our society today. In view of the fact that sin will always have consequences, what can we predict for the future? According to the basic law of sowing and reaping, the answer can best be given in the words of the prophet Hosea, “They sow the wind and they shall reap the whirlwind.” (Hos. 8:7) There is one time of sowing (while alive), and there will be two times of reaping. We reap in this life and also reap beyond this life in the hereafter. Sin brings forth its consequences both here and hereafter.

            People may do things without realizing the consequences of their actions, but one day there is going to be an accounting! (Rev. 21:8)                                                                                                                                                                                           

SEXUAL DEVIANCE AND PERVERSION by Earl Sutton

 

The Bible says, “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garments: for all that do so are an abomination unto the Lord thy God” (Deut. 22:5). In our society today this is called “transvestism.” God’s condemnation here and in the rest of the Bible is pointed directly at those of either sex who try to break down the differences which He expects to exist between man and woman. God made man and woman different, and He expects them to stay that way forever!          The whole issue in this verse is that of sexual deviance and perversion.

            One example of this sexual deviance is that of Michelle Obama, First Lady of the United States. She/he was born Michael LaVaughn Robinson in Chicago in 1964 and in 1983 underwent sex reassignment surgery. He then attended Princeton University under his new identity as Michelle Robinson and met Barry Obama, Jr. They subsequently started living together, married and adopted two children.

            There is scientific proof that Michelle is a man, because one cannot cover up completely the man anatomy which includes male hands, shoulders, body proportions, Adam’s Apple and male genatella.  Michael’s perversion of dressing up like a woman likely indicates a mental disorder and certainly brings shame and disgrace to the highest office in the land.

            The Bible also says, “Thou shalt not lie with mankind: it is an abomination” (Lev. 18:22). Throughout the entire Bible, God has made it abundantly clear that homosexuality is wrong and is called an abomination. Investigative journalist, Wayne Madsen has documented Obama’s homosexual activities in Chicago while he was an Illinois state senator. In fact, 14 years ago, the New York Times reported on a growing underground subculture in the black community of Chicago known as “Down Low Club. This club was comprised mainly of men who secretly engaged in homosexual activities while putting up a false front as living straight lives in public.

            The Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Jr. at the Trinity United Church in Chicago, ran this secret organization. This is the church Obama attended for over 20 years. Obama’s perversion of homosexuality in the White House is the heart of the audacity of deceit toward his war on American values!

            The weeping prophet of old asked, “Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? No, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore, shall they fall and be cast down” (Jer. 8:12). Does it disturb our society and main-stream media who hides this from the American people? No.

            These two perverts are pushing the trans-rights movement from the White House down the throats of the American people! Instead of being ashamed of their deviant and perverted behavior (which stinks to high heaven), they are full steam ahead. President Obama, just recently, proclaimed June 2016 as LGBT Pride Month!

            What is the real agenda of trans-activists? It is nothing less than an attempt to overthrow the moral order in our society that exists between male and female (Gen. 1:27). The issue is not about who can use which bathroom, but it is something much more sinister. The real issue is the annihilation of the categories of male and female.  Those promoting this agenda have banned the use of words such as: mother, father, son, daughter, him, her, etc. The legal destruction of gender distinctions will inevitably dissolve the family! If transgender distinctions are enacted into law, it will cause the traditional marriage between a man and woman to be obsolete.

            Ronald Reagan warned in 1984, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We cannot pass it to our children in the bloodstream, it must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”

            As Christians, everything is on the line in our next presidential election. We must vote for a candidate who will restore moral issues in America!
