Turning them over to a reprobate mind


Romans 1: 27-29
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 of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers...

The Bible teaches that sometimes men and women become so vile and wicked that God "gives them over to a reprobate mind" to essentially do whatever they will without any divine or moral restraint.

God said, "My spirit shall not always strive with man."

There comes a time when man rejects the interventions of God so often, so consistently, and for so long a period of time that he can no longer hear the voice of God calling him back to sanity, to goodness, to rightness, to honor.

It is then that the dire consequences of man's sin are reaped in much weeping and sorrow. It has happened throughout history, with the Great Flood, with Sodom and Gomorrah, with the invasion of Israel by a pagan Babylonian King who took them as slaves into exile.

Shall America escape?

We are as bad, if not worse, than Sodom and Gomorrah. It is not enough for society to grant the right to homosexuals to live together in whatever arrangement they wish. In free societies, this is only proper. We are not a theocracy but a Constitutional Republic that guards the rights of minorities. Even those who comprise only a fraction of the population have the right to live as they please, to pursue life, liberty, and happiness.

But we are now being forced to change the definition of marriage dating back into antiquity just to suit such minorities. Marriage is a sacred institution between a man and a woman, and it is has been such for eons of time. Why should we at this juncture in history be forced to change it just to accommodate those who already have the right to live together as they please, with the legal protection from the state?

Marriage is not just any arrangement between anybody, no more than having sex with a cat is to be considered "marriage."

Let's get real here.

But make no mistake, this is not the only manifestation of man's reprobate mind presently. This is only the tip of the iceberg. Lying is a way of life in government and business. That makes it a sham, especially in government. When we cannot trust elected officials, what good are they?

This administration has lied, cheated, implemented policies that have resulted in multiple murders in Mexico and Libya. It has supported the reprobates who wish to change the definition of marriage to include that which involves "men lying with men," which the Bible in the passage quoted above specifically condemns. The administration supports abortion on demand. It punishes businesses by forcing them to implement policies that make it impossible to make a profit and stay in business. It's policies on taxation are tantamount to abject theft.

Yet Americans not only send the same crowd right back to the White House and Congress, but approval ratings in the polls say that citizens affirm the reprobates in this administration by a 54% margin after the election.

I'm sorry, my Christian friend, but if you say your Christianity does not influence how you vote, you are dangerously close to being turned over to a reprobate mind yourself. When right becomes wrong, and wrong is right, then you are spiritually bereft and may not even be a Christian at all.

Mark it down, America's chickens WILL come home to roost. We will not escape the notice of God as we go down this wicked path. It is a path that leads straight to destruction.

I beg you to repent immediately. Turn from this wickedness before it is too late. Confess your sins, your evil to God. Ask Him to forgive you. Commit yourself to Him and to what is good, right, honorable. This is your only hope as a human being. And it is our only hope as a country.
