What's next? A hate-crime law protecting murderers and pedophiles? Sin is Sin - and it is wrong according to God and God ain't going to shut up for anyone! His Word condemns sin such as homosexuality and it won't change no matter what the government decides. It is the sin that God hates, not the people. It is the sin we preach against.
I wonder how many preachers would compromise and not preach against it? I guess God would really be sorting the chaff from the wheat - the test just may be ahead. Let the real Stephen's stand up! I don't think Stephen was worried about who he offended and he sure wasn't like some preacher's today who don't want to preach against sin because they don't want to upset anyone. Go ahead and try not to offend them right into hell. Hell is going to be full of people that the preacher didn't want to offend by telling them they were wrong. A real Godly preacher will scream and tell you the road is out ahead! He will warn you that if you go that way, you will die! He shows his love for you by telling you the truth! Read Acts 7 and after his sermon - you see the effect it had on the people because their deeds were evil, let's look at see:
When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth.
Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord, And cast him out of the city, and stoned him:
They couldn't stand the preacher man preaching against their sin. They wanted to shut him up! Just like the homosexuals want people to shut up across our land because they don't want you calling them out in their sin. It reminds me of a recent sermon that Pastor Davis preached called "Stop the Sermon". It gets uncomfortable when God gets on your sin and its supposed to be that way - its called conviction! God hopes you will repent. You will either repent or get mad and keep on doing your sin.
Now we have these abusers of themselves with mankind getting mad at those who dare speak against their sin and evil hearts. God has something to say about it in His word:
God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 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. 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;
They left the NATURAL USE of each other and BURNED IN THEIR LUST one toward another! It is VILE......it is sickening! They weren't born that way, they burned in their lust and CHOSE that way! God gave us an example of what happens when a city is turned over homesexuality - we all know what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah and to this day, it is in ruins:
