Here I Stand
I am sick and tired today. Everyday I pick up the newspaper there is another attack by Satan against God's people. Today in print I read where the Presbyterians are now ordaining homosexuals as pastors, ministers, elders and deacons. This is an outrage period, no need to be tolerant here. I may or may not use the scriptures in print here as this is a rant or a rage as I write. So quoting may not be typed in but the reference will appear. So first of all if you are as enraged as I am pick up your Bible and have it on hand. Romans chapter one read the chapter. Do you know what a reprobate mind is? That is the word in the King James Version. Ok you knew I would go on to give that definition any way, right? It is a depraved mind. God has sealed the minds of these type individuals that they cannot make the decision of right and wrong in their minds. It is depraved, reprobate, and it is in our churches today. We have clergy with reprobate minds. Apostasy at its fullest is reigning in the churches of America.
Let me continue with a few more definitions:
1) Apostasy, falling away, as in falling away from the truth,rebelling against what one has believed
2) Fornication, sexual immorality, any sexual act outside of marriage
3) Licentious, lewd
4) Lascivious, lewd especially in immoral sexual actions
These definitions are the actions of a sexually reprobate or depraved mind. Yet, our churches are opening their arms up and letting these people come in as leaders in the church. We need to have enough compassion to lead them to Christ. We also need to have enough compassion to keep our churches pure and holy in the sight of God. Which way will you stand? As for me and my house we will serve God, His statutes, His precepts, His law, His Son sacrificed for our atonement. Here I stand.
No, I will not be tolerant, no I will not back down not one bit, Martin Luther said it best,"I recant nothing for to go against one's own conscience is neither safe nor right, THEREFORE HERE I STAND!"
The United Church of Christ
The Episcopal Church
The Evangelical Lutheran Church of America
Reform and Conservative Judiasm
The Presbyterian Church
And soon to go that way the United Methodist Church.
It is time the congregations stand up against homosexuality in the church leadership and know the scriptures against fornication. Scriptures taught by our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, scriptures from Matthew through Revelation against fornication abound. The one thing really standing up here is the apostasy of the end days and as Paul wrote the turning of man from natural affection. (Romans 1:31)
Oh I know this is where people will never read my writings again, if not by what I have already raged over. If your local church will not pull out of the synod it is in and say we love the sinner but not the sin, then it is time to come out. Yes, I did say that. It is time to leave that congregation of whoremongers and get into a scriptural Bible believing, Bible teaching, Bible preaching church. Jesus said,"Come out from among them and be ye separate." Here I stand! Where will you the, called out child of God stand? Every one of us that has truly accepted Christ as Savior and plunged our sins beneath that crimson flood are His called out.
Those of you who decide you want someone daring and brave enough to write the truth then God Bless you my friends. For here I stand, who else will stand? Will you make that stand if in your church the heads of the denomination say ordaining practicing homosexuals is ok? Will you stand if they say,"Well the Bible is outdated and does not apply to us today. It needs to be changed to meet our life styles now not 2000 years ago." The Bible says Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever.
It is time to take a stand. Prayer is out of our school. Bible reading is out of our schools. The Ten Commandments are being taken out of courthouses across the land. Christians are being told to not speak in public for fear of offending someone. The Bible says it is an offense to the lost. THe immoral majority may take God out of everything else but not our churches. The statutes and precepts of God must rule in our local congregations. Here I stand! Will you stand?
Those that are truly Christians need today to come out from among them and be ye separate. Will you stand?

Yes we will stand! Thank you for this well written and thoughtful article which points out how scripture attests to homosexuality being another form of fornication and as such an abomination to God. Jesus didn't differentiate between gay or straight lust when He commented that it is adultery in God's eyes. Matthew 5:28 We wouldn't think of having a single heterosexual pastor that was sexually active in our pulpit.
