The Winter Wickedness Perversion Fest was held at a Holiday Inn in Ohio Last Week

(Ephesians 2:10; Acts 4:12)

The Winter Wickedness Perversion Fest was held at a Holiday Inn in Worthington, near Columbus, Ohio last weekend. The event featured classes "on 'gangbang' fantasies and various acts of sadomasochistic perversion and consensual sexualized violence, including subjecting fellow participants to hot wax torture, whipping, 'cutting' and needles, and being stapled with an electric staple gun."

For example, the rules demand: "Single tail [whip] play, Wax, Medical, Cutting, Needle play, and FirePlay, must be performed in the designated areas only. Please [consult a PSM [Play Space Monitor] for the appropriate area if you are not sure. Drop clothes, gloves, condoms, sharps containers, tarps, etc., must be used for this sort of play." Things now allowed were Gun Play, Golden showers (urine), Brown Showers (Feces) or Rainbow/Roman showers (Vomit).

I deeply apologize for the graphic depiction of what this "adults only convention" was really about, but it is time to strip away the veneer that homosexuality is simply a loving relationship between two people of the same sex. It is a highly perverse CHOICE that involves disgusting and unnatural sex acts. People need to understand exactly what goes on in this perverted and depraved world of homosexuality, especially since we now have a President who will help promote the radical homosexual agenda and help this pervasion continue to grow and flourish.

"The homosexual agenda is destroying this nation, OK, it's just a fact," Oklahoma State Rep. Sally Kern said recently to a gathering of fellow Republicans outside the Capitol. "Studies show no society that has totally embraced homosexuality has lasted, you know, more than a few decades. So it's the death knell in this country. I honestly think it's the biggest threat that our nation has, even more so than terrorism or Islam, which I think is a big threat," she said. AMEN! I agree with Rep. Kern 100%!

Kern, a former school teacher whose husband is a Baptist pastor, was lambasted for her "bigoted, hate-filled, intolerant" comments by the press and general public, not to mention the Democratic Governor of Oklahoma as well as lesbian talk show host and homosexual activist Ellen DeGeneres. What have I told you for years now? If you tell the lie long enough and loud enough, people will accept it to be the truth. Never has that been more evident than in the relentless campaign by the homosexual community to make their choice of deviant sexual relations acceptable and mainstream.

The war to keep the sin of homosexuality from becoming accepted and condoned, even celebrated, has been lost! So you still think this is a Christian nation? Over the past 40 years prayer and Bible teaching have been taken out of the public schools, we legally slaughter over 4,000 innocent babies a day, gambling and pornography are now socially acceptable, profanity is no longer considered bad language, Jesus, the Bible, and the Christian faith are openly mocked while the cults and false religions of the world are now revered and protected, we have changed God's definition of what marriage and the family is, places that call themselves churches and men and women who call themselves pastors don't even believe the Bible and operate in complete rebellion to God's Word, and the sin of homosexuality is now considered an acceptable mainstream lifestyle choice.

How could all of this have happened in such a short period of time? Simple. Men and women who God called to lead his church and people have failed to do so. Many of them deny the inspiration, inerrancy, and Truth of the Bible and have led people to accept and condone what God clearly calls sin. Others have chosen to preach a gospel of motivation and prosperity that tickles the ears of the masses and garners them huge followings of people who don't want to hear about sin and sacrifice, only how to be successful and rich by this world's standards.

Still others have gravitated to a social gospel, seeking to solve the problems of this fallen world like hunger and sickness and poverty, without ever mentioning the greatest need a person has, to have a relationship with Jesus since that "offends" people. These are noble causes but wasn't it Jesus who said "the poor you will always have with you." That doesn't mean we don't reach out to the poor and the sick, but the greatest need a man has isn't food and medicine, it is to know Jesus as their Savior. Too many who are navigating the waters of the social gospel, have had to compromise the absolutes of the Bible and create unholy alliances in order to do the work they are doing.

How did we get to this place as a nation? Men and women God called to lead who led the church into their own little subculture, apart from mainstream society. We retreated behind the four walls of the church into the comfort and prosperity of the "Christian trough," something satan was only too eager to let us do since it removed the "salt" and "light" from the marketplace and left it to his wolves to ravage.

Now when we step out of our comfortable little subculture back into the real world, we are faced with babies being slaughtered, men marrying men and women marrying women, porn and gambling everywhere you turn, filthy language accepted as normal conversation, all of the media vehicles being used to carry Satan's lies to the masses to insure their souls will end up in hell, and parades to celebrate a sin like homosexuality!!!

I love you and care about you so much. The sad fact is, we can't turn back the hands of time. Things are never going to be the way they used to be. Those days are gone and over. However, in the wake of this gross and unbridled sin are the destroyed lives of real people who bought the sweet lies of sin and are now paying the price for their rebellion to God. This is a new opportunity for the church and for God's people to be the true hope and answer for those who are still breathing, whose lives have been devastated by sin, and who yearn for the peace and joy that can only come from having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

A byproduct of all this sin is the coming wrath of God and great persecution on the church and God's people. This is the time when all of the ways we have figured out to divide ourselves will no longer be important, when those who serve the Lord for mammon will fall away since it will no longer be profitable, and those who aren't serious about their faith will run from it. Left will be a faithful remnant whose citizenship is not of this world and whose goals are not earthly but Heavenly. It is this faithful group who will help bring in a great harvest of souls as the final moments of human history unfold.

My prayer for you today is that you become more bold in your witness for Christ. Don't emulate some of these so-called leaders who have been programmed by their business handlers to never even utter the name of Jesus so people aren't offended and book sales aren't hurt. It is at the name of JESUS that every knee shall bow and every tongue confess Him Lord! The Bible proclaims that there is only ONE NAME by which men are saved, the name of JESUS! If we are ashamed of Jesus, He will be ashamed of us.

Take your stand for Jesus my friend, just like Oklahoma State Rep. Sally Kern has. In a nation and world that has rejected our Lord and His Truth, now more than ever He needs each one of his true followers to stand for Him. Yes, this nation is no longer a Christian nation, and yes the war to stop the sin of homosexuality from becoming mainstream has been lost, but when this world as we know it comes to an end, sin will be defeated and the TRUTH will prevail!

In His love and service, Your friend and brother in Christ, Bill Keller
