John Watson Show

I would ask your prayers for a quiet heart, clear mind, boldness, Biblical Answers, etc. this Monday morning on the John Watson show (WILM 1450 AM 9am)

The discussion will be the Lighthouse protest of Safeway's promotion of Gay and Lesbian Pride Month.

I want to make clear to you that this battle must not be for the purpose of publicity or self promotion in anyway. It may be tempting to seek attention, but that is not what the purpose is. With as little or as much voice as the Lord gives us, we must declare that homosexuality is an offense and sin against Almighty God. The Bible says in Leviticus that it is an abomination. Romans 1 says it it is vile affection and against nature. I Timothy 1:9-10 says places homosexuality among the worst sins to be realized. Jude 1:7 reminds us of Sodom and Gomorrah and that eternal fire is awaiting homosexuals who will not repent.

All sinners including Tobe Witmer need to repent. I praise the Lord for that day 29 years ago. God will forgive any sinner that will repent and come to Christ.

If we are all sinners, why do we publicly stand against homosexuality? Gay and Lesbianism bears with it special judgment of God. This is a heinous sin that God judged by fire from heaven. This sin attacks the very core of God's picture of Christ and the church in marriage. Do you realize that this is Satan's greater plan? To distort marriage is to distort Ephesians 5 and the beautiful picture that Christ the Groom gave himself for His bride (the saved).

Do you realize that the average lifespan of a homosexual man is somewhere between 43 and a few years older? (this statistic is disputed, but the danger and premature death of homosexuality cannot be denied)

Please pray that this opportunity will be used to the greatest glory for God and for His Christ. May the Lord receive glory and a clear picture of His holy judgment bring fear to repentance for every person listening - gay or straight.

Please consider the Bible that condemns homosexuality is the Bible that our Presidents take their oath upon, endowed us by our Creator with "certain unalienable rights, teaches us "In God We Trust", and is the basis of many of the laws of this great United States. The words of Congressman Forbes of Virginia couldn't be more true.

"That's YOUR opinion"

Today, one of our members sent me an American Family Alert that Safeway Grocery stores (including Genardis) were displaying large posters celbrating Gay and Lesbian Pride Month.

I was driving by our Safeway beside K-Mart in Bear and decided to see for myself. Low and behold as I entered the store, there it was on the right at floor level. It was about a 2ft.x 2ft. poster exalting Gay and Lesbian Heritage.

Now, a situation like this demands a decision: either I get mad and ignore Safeway's blatant support of perversion, or I stand for God, holiness, family, America, and all that is right. I suppose I could just fume and preach at church about it and let it at that; however, that will not change one thing. Christians must be publicly vocal against homosexual perversion or your grandchildren will have a Lesbian President.

I calmly went to the information desk and addressed the Assistant Manager, asking him if he was the Manager on Duty. I then told him that the Gay and Lesbian sign was extreemly offensive to me and my family. I told him that homosexuality used to be against the law in our country and that it was wrong and immoral. He told me that "That is your opinion". I told him that Safeway would lose business over this and that the majority of our country was not Gay or Lesbian. He told me that his company (Safeway) was proud of the Gays and Lesbians. I ended the conversation by telling him that homosexuality was wrong.

I am asking every Christian who reads this to complain to Safeway.

Willow Creek Confession

Lighthouse Baptist Church was founded in part because a group of grounded believers said no to their church participating in the Willow Creek Movement. If you are not familiar with this movement, it is/was the "Seeker-Sensitive" model of reaching people. They sure did reach people. Mega Churches grew up in many places.

Now, after a mult-year study of the results of this "Seeker-sensitive" approach, a book has been released admitting that a great mistake was made. Willow Creek is full of people who don't know their Bibles and are questionable disciples of Jesus Christ.

I would encourage you to really think through the gimmicks that are being used to "reach" people for the Lord. It is not gimmicks that REALLY reach people, it is the plodding of preaching, soul winning, discipling, teaching, and a Biblical local church. Numbers and crowds are not the goal. We need to wash ourselves of the foolishness of "churching" for numbers. As Willow Creek is now seeing, it leads to places of mistakes.

Speak Up Christians!

Though we don't make it "the main thing" at LBC, I believe that we should continue as individual believers and sometimes as a church group to be very vocal in our world against the immorality around us. Christ wants us to be salt in light in this vile world. I am speaking of boycotting, picketing, letters to the editor, radio, phone calls, signing petitions, etc.

You will remember that I encouraged you to join the American Family Association to boycott McDonalds to withdraw from the Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. They did withdraw after Christian's all over the country pressured them. AFA is encouraging companies to remain neutral in these moral fights.

Pepsico Corporation (Pepsi, Frito Lay, Quaker Oats, Tropicana, Gatorade) has become a very outspoken leader in the corporate world for the Homosexual agenda. This includes financial support, diversity training to workers, fringe benefits to gay partners, membership in the Gay Chamber of Commerce, open homosexual commercials on TV, ads in Out Magazine, etc.

I want you to read the letter that I sent to them via their General Contact site at :

Dear Pepsico,

I want Pepsico to know that I will be boycotting your company and encouraging everyone to do so until you become neutral on the homosexual agenda.

Stop giving advertising money to Out Magazine (Homosexual Pornography). Stop supporting Gay Pride day. Stop running ads encouraging homosexual activity. Withdraw from the Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce.

Other companies have become neutral: Ford, McDonalds, etc. Follow their example of an American Company that does not push agendas that offend a very large segment of Conservative Americans. We drink soft drinks also.

Tobe Witmer

In addition to writing this letter, I called the Pepsi Consumer Hotline and expressed my boycott until they become neutral on the Homosexual agenda. 1-866-626-0633

I ask the Christians of LBC to speak up and not be silent on the terrible moral state of our Country. We prevailed with McDonalds and we can influence Pepsi. We are definitely fighting a losing battle, but shame on the Christian who will not fight for the Word of God. We are to occupy until the Victor Comes in the Clouds with a rod of iron to set all things right. "Are there no foes for me to face? Must I not stem the flood? Is this vile world a friend to grace, To help me on to God?...Sure I must fight if I would reign; Increase my courage, Lord; I'll bear the toil, endure the pain, Supported by Thy Word." - Isaac Watts

Here is the American Family Association information on the issue:

Take Action!
• Call PepsiCo's Board of Directors Concern Line at 1-866-626-0633 and tell the board of directors that you are boycotting PepsiCo and asking others to do the same. If there is no answer or you get a recording, stay on the line until a live operator comes on.
• Sign the Boycott Pepsi Pledge. After signing the pledge, please call Pepsi (914-253-2000 or 1-800-433-2652) and tell the company you will boycott its products until it stops promoting the homosexual agenda.
• Call the Pepsi bottler nearest you and ask it to stop supporting the homosexual agenda.
• Pepsi’s products include Pepsi soft drinks, Frito-Lay chips and snacks (800-352-4477), Quaker Oats (800-367-6287), Tropicana (800-237-7799) and Gatorade (800-884-2867).
• Print the Boycott Pepsi Pledge and distribute it.
• Forward this e-mail to your friends and family so they will know about Pepsi’s support of the homosexual agenda. Millions of people are not aware of Pepsi’s support of homosexual organizations.
