Courage and Standing up for Biblical Truths

     What takes more courage?
A.  To be the first professional sports figure to come out of the closet and proclaim that he is gay?
B.  To proclaim the Biblical truth that homosexuality is evil?
     Ten years ago, the answer A would be the correct answer.  Unfortunately, we live in a land where evil is proclaimed to be good, and good is proclaimed to be evil.  Thus, when Jason Collins proclaimed that he was a homosexual, it was called "courageous."  The NBA commissioner said "We are proud he has assumed the leadership mantle on this very important issue."  He even received a call of encouragement from President Obama.  Then President Obama said in a press conference:  "I had a chance to talk to him yesterday.  He seems like a terrific young man   I told him I couldn't be prouder... one of the extraordinary measures of progress that we've seen in this country has been the recognition that the LGBT community deserves full equality, not just partial equality.  Not just tolerance, but a recognition that they're fully a part of the American family. . . .  For I think a lot of young people out there who are gay or lesbian, who are struggling with these issues, to see a role model out there who's unafraid. . . We judge people on the basis of their character and their performance, not on their sexuality. I'm very proud of him."
     Dr. Ben Carson had been invited as the commencement speaker of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.  He then stated that that based on God's Word marriage is between a man and a woman.  It is not between man and man, man and boy, or man and beast.  The homosexual community immediately caused such an uproar that he was forced to withdraw from being the commencement speaker.  Nobody called his remarks "courageous" to stand up for the truth.  He did not receive a call from the Hopkins University and praised him for speaking the truth.  And President Obama certainly did not call him up and talk to him and then praise him to the sky. 
       Lord, forgive our nation for calling evil good, and good evil.

You are so correct on this. We should promote this blog more :-)
