If a society can fall for the nonsense that a man can "marry" another man, it is patently clear that such a society will fall for anything. So what next for the West?
In the U.S., when the Supreme Court destroyed the foundation of marriage and imposed, without the people's authority, the normalization by law of homosexuality on the entire country, the LGBTQIW freight train or juggernaut were left wondering what to do next? They had created one of the most successful and powerful movements in human history. "What happens now?" they asked.
I suggest that this movement is not easily stopped or reversed. Like most movements of its kind the end often results because it goes to such extremes that suddenly the consequences of their collective actions catches up with them. Either people wake up and respond, through electing leaders who might be able to halt the slide (Trump), or by society responding so strongly against that movement so as to create yet another unhelpful extreme but in the opposite direction, (hatred of all things gay) and so things go.
The consequences were slightly more dire for other societies in human history who were swamped by the sickness of homosexual immorality. The Romans for instance did not survive or retain its influence for very long after it succumbed to homosexual depravity , nor of course did Sodom & Gomorrah.
Once the homosexuals succeeded in the U.S in destroying marriage, the resources of the movement were focused on destroying more truth and pretending that suddenly gender is fluid. They started ramming the whole transgender nonsense on society so forcefully that most responsible adults did not know what hit them. Before we knew it children were being bombarded with mental abuse through teaching at schools that they can choose their sexuality, their gender, that gay sex is the go etc. etc.
This issue was not on their agenda before their major Supreme Court Obergefell victory. "A cursory look at the New York Times demonstrates that there were next to no stories at all about transgenders per se until 2015 in the run-up to Obergefell. Stories went from one or two to more than 1,000 almost overnight."1
"Both responses (attacking the Church, and transgender) had more to do with fundraising and keeping their issue before the public after they had swept the table at the Supreme Court. After all, gay couples could easily find other bakers and other photographers to decorate and commemorate their “nuptials.”1
So what comes next? What will the homosexual juggernaut move their arsenal against next? They have taken marriage and family. They have targeted and succeeded in messing up an entire generation of children. They have normalized the abnormal. Silenced opponents. Chipped away at society's collective conscience to the point where it is almost extinct.
A natural target for the movement is of course the Christians and their Bible, which has been a constant target already but I suggest will now come under such extreme pressure that we will see a rising tide of anti-Christian hatred and persecution ahead that it will shock most people with its seeming swiftness and ferocity. After-all the Bible says that what these people do is abhorrent. They cannot and will not leave that unanswered.
"Jesus is the Messiah of the Old Testament which makes it clear that the sin in Sodom & Gomorrah (Gen 19:1-29) was rampant homosexual immorality. Gay men even forcing themselves on unwilling men to perform anal sex with them, and against their will at that. So it was not just gay sex it was gay rape."2
Leviticus 18:22 says to men: "Do not have sex with a man as one does a woman; that is detestable."
"Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral... nor men who practice homosexuality,.. will inherit the kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 6:9–10).
Jesus made it clear what marriage is: “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” (Matthew 19:4-6).
Churches: Prepare for Growth
The Church however is not buildings and will of course continue, as it cannot be defeated. As throughout Christian history this rise in persecution will actually be good for the Church which will grow. As Tertullian once said, “The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church.”
So, first marriage, then gender, then the Christian persecution, then the rapid growth in the Church. The signs are clear. The future is clear. Print more Bibles. Train more pastors. Start building programs. Get better at caring for those damaged by this tsunami of immorality. There will be much healing required.
Christian: Your future is bright. Your joy cannot be taken away, it can, like a good wine, only get better with age. Your identity is found in Jesus Christ. Your confidence is found in Jesus Christ. Stand firm against this coming persecution. You are in the very best of hands.
Every child comes from and needs BOTH a mother and a father. Same-sex "marriage" intentionally keeps either a mother or a father from the child. Government should protect the child through upholding traditional marriage.
There is “a time to be silent, and a time to speak”. (Ecclesiastes 3:7). Now is the time to speak, so please speak up and defend children, truth and freedom. Craig Manners
“What the world needs most is a voice that courageously speaks the truth, not when the world is right, but a voice that speaks the truth when the world is wrong.” Fulton Sheen
True marriage offers true equality for children. Every child comes from and needs BOTH a Mum and a Dad. Every human being has dignity and deserves respect. All sorts of relationships can be respected at law without having to change marriage laws. In fact that has been the case legally for many years. The simple fact remains though that not every relationship is marriage.
