Why are all these people smiling?
This December 22nd, 2010 repeal was one piece of wicked legislature built on the wicked legislature of President Clinton's 1993 mandate which simply instructed homosexuals to practice their sin quietly.
No matter how much our leaders and country smiles and rejoices, God says that Sodomy is sin of extreme perversion, lust, uncleanness, vile affection, against nature, and unseemly. It is an extreme sexual sin that is a consequence of a person or nation forgetting God. Though all sin is wicked, homosexuality is revealed in Scripture as an exceeding wicked national sin that deserves the destruction of the Lord as He did Sodom and Gomorrah.
Romans 1:24-27 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: (25) Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. (26) For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: (27) And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence (payback) of their error which was meet.
Repealing "Don't ask don't tell" is nothing to smile about, but rather everything to weep about. Beyond the terrible distraction that this will be to our military in everyday perverse situations, the greater harm here is a Country that once trusted God rejoicing in a lifestyle that spits on His holiness, His establishment of marriage, and the picture of Christ and the church.
Instead of conviction and shame for their sin that will bring repentance and salvation to perishing homosexuals, our country is glamorizing and commending the unrighteousness which will lead many to the lake of fire. Instead of compassion that preaches repentance to lost homosexuals, our country is applauding the extreme sin that often drives them to a life of debauchery, sickness, disease, death of their body, and ultimately death of their soul. For the sake of the repentance of perishing homosexuals, sin must be preached as exceeding sinful.
America is lost in sin and our only hope is national revival. As Christians, we must not put our head in the sand and ignore such terrible and wicked steps of destruction such as President Obama's repeal. We must be the pillar and ground of truth. We must never be politally correct, but rather be Biblically correct and condemn Sodomy just as the Lord does. We must cry in the streets, we must be burdened with our national sin, we must fast and pray for God to send revival.
