How Does It Happen?
"We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity. We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries, in your youth groups."
How did we get in this mess?
Homosexuals are demanding the right to teach (and recruit) our children. Fornicators expose themselves on the big screen in full view of anyone who can buy a theater ticket. Gutter language courses through our living rooms teaching our youngsters how to express themselves with "shock appeal."
And graphic violence slowly brutalizes the entire society, making us hardened to suffering. This has not happened by accident. There is a three-step process which Satan uses to numb us into silence.
At first, everyone knows the activity Satan is pushing on us is wrong. But a few voices say, "You don't have to agree with us, but since we are not hurting you, it is only right that you tolerate us. Let us do what we do in peace. We will leave you alone." Homosexuals sounded this cry as they left their dark closets, coming out in the open. And we bought it. As long as they stayed away from us, we tolerated them. But all the while, we didn't notice our children equating toleration with "Step II."
Next, those wanting to spread sinful behavior ask us to move beyond toleration and view their behavior as an "acceptable alternative lifestyle."
That means, while we may not do it ourselves, we will not criticize them for doing these things. Instead we gave the greatest blessing that any society can bestow upon perversion: —silence.
We treated them just like one of us. We elected them to public office, let them teach our children, and passed laws protecting their "right" to act lower than the animals. And our children noticed.
We never intended this to happen. Once perverse behavior was accepted, many began to imitate it. After all, wasn't "everyone" doing it? With all the publicity they got, it seemed like it. And so our children began to imitate homosexuals. And they began running out on their mates, committing adultery just like they watched the stars do on television.
They ran headlong to the occult and showed no remorse when they spilled someone else's blood. And we wondered what happened.
We must never allow our children to see sin as a light thing but continually remind them of God's point of view. Remind them of how God handled the homosexuals of Sodom and Gomorrah who demanded their rights. He expressed His opinion with fire from heaven!
Or sadly wonder how long before God handles our society's fornication (sexual sin) the way He did that of the Jews who "rose up to play" while Moses was on Mt. Sinai.
While those people were dying, their sin didn't look cute or attractive! You can't disobey God without paying a price.
Our continual sense of outrage that people do these things will help protect our children from the awesome pressure to imitate.
We must never let them forget: God keeps records!
