Daily Devotional for Sunday June 26, 2016
(1 Thessalonians 4:3, Romans 1:18-32, 1 Corinthians 6:9-1)
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, thank you for your blessings. I admit so much of the time I take most of them for granted, but today, I want to acknowledge your love for me and the many blessings you bestow upon me each and every day. It is easy to say thank you, but more important to thank you in how I live my life each day. Give me your strength to live my life pleasing and acceptable to you during this day. In Jesus name I pray...AMEN!
TRANSGENDERED CHILDREN??? "God be with you today Bill Keller, I have a friend whose daughter wants to become a man. She is 14 now . Any suggestions to give to my friend and family?"
I wish I could tell you the number of emails like this we are now getting EVERY WEEK! LET ME CLARIFY, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A TRANSGENDERED PERSON, ONLY MEN AND WOMEN SO CONFUSED THAT THEY HAVE BOUGHT INTO A LIE THAT THEY ARE SOMETHING OTHER THAN WHO GOD CREATED THEM AS!!!
My counsel to parents in this situation is first, at 14, your child is just that...A CHILD! A child with a brain still being formed and who has obviously bought into the brainwashing of our society on this issue. They need professional CHRISTIAN counseling to help them understand God makes no mistakes and they are the gender HE created them to be. They need to understand the LIES of satan that has them in this confused state. It is a battle of the truth and the lie!
The advocates for these perverse lifestyles and relationships lashes out at people like myself and the church, saying that by denouncing homosexuality as a sin it creates an atmosphere for people to bully those who choose to commit homosexual acts and puts the lives of those who choose to engage in this type of sinful activity at risk.
WRONG! It is not those who call the sin of homosexuality what God calls it, sin, who are responsible for this confusion, it is the homosexual community promoting their unhealthy, unnatural, and perverted lifestyle t9 children! I have tried to tell you that for decades the homosexual community has targeted children as young as elementary school in order to brainwash them that there is nothing wrong with this sexual choice.
I also blame the media, especially high profile personalities like Anderson Cooper, Rachel Maddow, Don Lemon, Ellen DeGeneres, Rosie O'Donnell, and others who use their media platform to promote and glamorize the choice to engage in homosexual acts. Part of the blame also resides with those pastors who are too afraid to take on this sin, and those faux churches that actually promote and glorify acts that God calls sinful all throughout the Bible !
I get emails daily and calls on the TV program nightly from people who start out by saying, "I am a homosexual." Whenever that happens, I immediately jump in before I allow them to continue to correct them. I point out the fact that there is no such thing as a homosexual, only a homosexual act. There are people who CHOOSE to have sex with people of the same sex, but that is a sexual act, not who a person is. I have to admit, the saddest calls like this are from young men and women, clearly in their teens, calling up and claiming to be "gay" or "lesbian." These young adults have as much business engaging in any sexual activity as they do performing brain surgery!!!
I told you over and over once society crossed the line and accepted the perversion of same-sex relations as "normal," it would open the door to additional sexual perversion. I warned you over a decade ago, the homosexual community was coming after your children. They have been patient and done a masterful job over the past 2 decades to indoctrinate from birth that homosexuality is a perfectly acceptable and even glamorous lifestyle. They have accomplished this through the schools, the media, and yes, even the church!
Well over 60% of young adults 25 and under see nothing wrong with this CHOICE of unnatural, unhealthy, and perverted sex. Worse, over 40% of young adults 25 and under who identify themselves as "Christians" have no problem with the sin of homosexuality!!!
Today, I want to expose this orchestrated plan by the homosexual community to brainwash your children that this sin is a perfectly acceptable choice and to warn those who are not aware to what extent the pro-homosexual agenda is being fulfilled, while hopefully wake up the bloated, weak, and apathetic church that has to bear much of the responsibility for the moral decay of our culture.
The goal of those who have chosen the homosexual lifestyle is to justify their sinful choice that is inherently destructive both to society and themselves. They are trying to force society to validate legally and ethically their choice of sexual behavior and relationships, and to enact laws that allow them to promote this sinful choice to our children as normal, even desirable behavior.
It is very disturbing to hear a 14-year-old boy, a 15-year-old girl claiming to be gay or lesbian, or now, so confused they think they are the opposite sex of how God created them! When pressed if they were actually having sex they usually say no. The fact is, a 14-year-old boy or a 15-year-old girl are no more gay or lesbian than I am a giraffe! Just because I call myself a giraffe doesn't make me one.
They have simply bought into the "gay lie" that is being promoted by the pro-homosexual community and told loud enough, often enough in our society that these CHILDREN have this warped idea they are something other than how God created them. GOD DID NOT CREATE MEN TO HAVE SEX WITH MEN, OR WOMEN TO HAVE SEX WITH WOMEN! Those who do are committing unnatural acts in complete rebellion to God.
That is what is most upsetting to me. Whether you understand it or not, YOUR children are being targeted by the pro-homosexual community to indoctrinate them almost from birth that this choice of sexual relationship is normal, acceptable, and desirable. They have done this through infiltrating the school curriculum with pro-homosexual material, they have done this through the 3,000+ "gay clubs" in schools all over the nation, and they have masterfully used the media (TV, movies, Internet, music) to, day after day after day tell the world there is nothing wrong with this choice of sexuality.
Theologically this is not even a debatable issue. All through the Bible, from the Old Testament through the New, homosexuality is defined by God as a sin, PERIOD. God calls it an ABOMINATION! I have heard the tortured theological arguments homosexuals have made, but there is absolutely NO WAY to change the fact this act is a sin. Just because there is now a homosexual version of the Bible where they have literally changed the passages that call this act a sin, that does NOT change God's inspired, inerrant Word.
The two greatest lies the pro-homosexual community has put out are that 1) homosexuality is something that you are "born with," 2) 10% or more in our society are homosexual. First, modern science has CLEARLY rejected and been unable to prove that ANYONE is "born gay."
TAKING YOUR PANTS OFF TO HAVE SEX IS A CHOICE!!!! GOD DID NOT MAKE ANYONE "GAY!" PEOPLE CHOOSE TO ENGAGE IN HOMOSEXUAL BEHAVIOR!!!! LIKE ALL SIN, ONCE YOU DO IT LONG ENOUGH, IT MAY SEEM 'NATURAL', BUT IT IS STILL A CHOICE THAT YOU MAKE. The "struggle" people who choose this sin speak of is the same "struggle" we all have, to obey God or to sin! Also, all legitimate studies done by the non-homosexual community clearly show that less than 2% of the population EVER engage in this type of sexual sin.
A foolish argument from those who choose this sin is that "why would anyone choose something that brought them ridicule, condemnation, and the hatred of so many?" People make that choice every day! I deal daily with men and women who CHOOSE to commit adultery and destroy their marriage, lose the love and respect of their children, in many cases ruin their career. People who choose sin choose to deal with the consequences of their sin.
Of course, anyone who dares to speak up on this issue is labeled as "intolerant" and a "homophobe." So this group that calls for tolerance by others, is very INTOLERANT when someone opposes their views. They also use the word "homophobe" to intimidate people from speaking out against their sexual choice.
I love you and care about you so much. Pray for the parents of children like the email above, who have been confused and brainwashed by society on something as basic as their gender!. Parents, you need to wake up and be aware what other parents are teaching their children! There are endless numbers of parents "supporting" their child in trying to change their gender!
You better wake up and be aware that your daughters are being taught at school that it is "cool" to have sex with other girls, it is called "lesbian chic." You also better be aware that your sons are being taught having a boyfriend is the "in thing." Lastly, you better be VERY AWARE of what is on television, in music, and out in the culture that is constantly sending the message to your children that homosexuality is a normal and acceptable CHOICE!
The church better wake up and realize that while they have been building great buildings and getting fat, satan has been busy using the sin of homosexuality to destroy the lives of our children. As much of an abomination as homosexual churches are, equally as abominable to God are regular churches that accept homosexuality as a normal lifestyle!
We live in a free society. If people who have chosen to engage in homosexual activity want to have their own schools, their own churches, their own television network, they have every right to. It is about time the church wakes up and realizes that those who promote this sin are bold and are stopping at NOTHING to get their message out to the masses, and targeting the children!
THAT is why I am always talking about how the church, those who know Christ as their Savior, have got to quit preaching to the choir and start taking the hope and love of Christ to the world at large. As those who follow Christ, we also have a responsibility to pray for those who are in this bondage, for God to open their hearts to the truth of His Word, and to turn from their sin. Only God can change hearts, and for those who are in bondage to the sin of homosexuality, we must pray for them to open their hearts and turn from their sin.
Until Jesus returns, we will always have those who choose a perverted form of sex with those of their own gender, just like we will always have those who choose to pervert sex by having it outside of the bonds of marriage. While we can never accept their choice since it is clearly against God's Word, we must pray for them, just like we must pray for everyone who is battling sin in their life.
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
