God Is Not Mocked

The juxtaposition on the whole of the front page of last week’s ‘Mail,’ my local newspaper, of the town’s first gay pride march, and the report of a violent fight at our local senior High School which many of us saw depicted on TV, spoke tellingly of the loss of morality in our society, the loss of those respected and eternal laws in God’s word which determine what is right and what is wrong .

Now it seems, almost every kind of perversion is something to be proud of, and neither is there any authority in our schools, so that our teachers are afraid to discipline and dare not intervene even when a student is being kicked in the head, for fear of offending political correctness.

Our churchmen have been so busy doing away with God’s commands that Jesus Christ has disowned them, ‘On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness,’  Matthew 7:22-23. Our government, fearing the left’s political correctness, leans towards making it a criminal offense to speak out against such rebellion and lawlessness, ‘That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of nought.’ Isaiah 29:21.

But God is not mocked. We, as a people have rejected God’s word and, as we saw, we are already reaping the results of our refusal to keep His laws, which God has promised will finally lead to our invasion and destruction, despite our liberal naysayers.

The word of the LORD came to me: “Son of man, when the house of Israel  [The US, Britain and her Commonwealth] lived in their own land, they defiled it by their ways and their deeds. Their ways before me were like the uncleanness of a woman in her menstrual impurity. So I poured out my wrath upon them for the blood that they had shed in the land, for the idols with which they had defiled it. I scattered them among the nations, and they were dispersed through the countries. In accordance with their ways and their deeds I judged them,’  Ezekiel 36:16-19. Read the whole of the chapter to see that this is yet future.

Free Speech Under Threat

Human rights have become so corrupted that after the passing of the same sex marriage laws, we now need to go cap in hand to the supposedly Liberal government to ask that freedom of belief and freedom of speech be permissible.

We should understand that human rights are often about exercising discrimination. We discriminate in choosing with whom we associate, whom we support, whom we avoid. We discriminate in what we believe, and what we defend or reject.

Our freedom of religion and speech are now under threat from the Same Sex Marriage laws, and Section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act is proof that those laws will be used as a weapon by those who will claim they have been offended with views opposed to SSM, for the universal human right to freedom of belief has now been superseded by a right not to be offended. Even such cherished foundation stones of our civilisation as the words ‘Mother’ and ‘Father’ are now being challenged, suggested to be superseded by ‘parents 1 & 2’ !

Such extreme views mean that those whose beliefs do not allow them to support services connected to a SSM, such as hotels, bakers or private marriage venues, risk prosecution, and we can be sure that those so – called progressives who pushed SSM will continue to downgrade our freedoms which conflict with their desire to impose their minority views upon the majority.

Already it is evident that the Marxist-inspired Safe Schools gender and sexuality programme, so recently rejected by the federal  government after many complaints from parents, is planned to be re-introduced by some labour States on the back of the SSM laws, so we can expect that attempts to preserve free speech and freedom to protect our children from evil programmes and agendas will be fiercely fought by these enemies of genuine human rights.

The god of this world will be delighted !  2 Corinthians 4:4, ‘In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.’
