Days of Lot are here

Matt Barber, Director of Cultural Affairs with both Liberty Alliance Action and Liberty Counsel, released the following statement today in response to news that Barack Obama has invited openly homosexual Episcopal Bishop V. Gene Robinson to deliver the invocation at an inaugural event on Sunday:

“It’s a shame that President-elect Obama apparently has so little regard for his Christian constituents that he would give such a high place of honor to a self-styled man of God whose only claim to fame is that he abandoned his wife and children to enter, ‘loudly and proudly,’ a sexually deviant lifestyle expressly condemned by the very Bible he’s ironically called ‘holy and sacred.’

“None of us are without sin; and certainly none are less valuable in God’s eyes than any other. But Christ did command us to repent of our sins and to ‘go and sin no more.’ Not only has Robinson refused to repent of his homosexual behavior, which is unequivocally condemned throughout both the Old and New Testaments as sexual sin, he has further rebelled against God by leading astray countless of his flock who suffer from similar temptation."

When Jesus said in Luke 17:29-30, 'As it was in the days of Lot, even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed', He was inviting us to cast our thoughts back to Genesis 18, when this civilization is in a Sodom condition. Jesus said the moral and spiritual condition of those two cities would repeat in the end time, and that the Genesis account of God's warning was a pattern and type of the warning He would send to the Gentile believers of this last day. We are in the Days of Lot now.

Jude 7 ”In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire.”

Let us remember to pray for our President, that his heart would be changed. And pray for the bishop that he repents of his sins. The truth is the truth. Homosexuality (along with the other sexual sins) are abhorrent to God. But as Micah wrote 'He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.'

He has shown us what is good. Let it be so.
