Oklahoma Politician Sally Kern Warring Against The Homosexual Agenda

Posted by Job on March 22, 2008

(Ephesians 2:10; Acts 4:12)

“The homosexual agenda is destroying this nation, OK, it’s just a fact,”
Oklahoma State Rep. Sally Kern said recently to a gathering of fellow
Republicans outside the Capitol. “Studies show no society that has totally
embraced homosexuality has lasted, you know, more than a few decades. So
it’s the death knell in this country. I honestly think it’s the biggest
threat that our nation has, even more so than terrorism or Islam, which I
think is a big threat,” she said. AMEN! I agree with Rep. Kern 100%!

Kern, a former school teacher whose husband is a Baptist pastor, has been
lambasted for her “bigoted, hate-filled, intolerant” comments by the press
and general public, not to mention the Democratic Governor of Oklahoma as
well as lesbian talk show host and homosexual activist Ellen DeGeneres.
What have I told you for years now? If you tell the lie long enough and
loud enough, people will accept it to be the truth. Never has that been
more evident than in the relentless campaign by the homosexual community to
make their choice of deviant sexual relations acceptable and mainstream.

The war to keep the sin of homosexuality from becoming accepted and
condoned, even celebrated, has been lost! So you still think this is a
Christian nation? Over the past 40 years prayer and Bible teaching have been
taken out of the public schools, we legally slaughter over 4,000 innocent
babies a day, gambling and pornography are now socially acceptable,
profanity is no longer considered bad language, Jesus, the Bible, and the
Christian faith are openly mocked while the cults and false religions of the
world are now revered and protected, we have changed God’s definition of
what marriage and the family is, places that call themselves churches and
men and women who call themselves pastors don’t even believe the Bible and
operate in complete rebellion to God’s Word, and the sin of homosexuality is
now considered an acceptable mainstream lifestyle choice.

Hello! Christians! Think it is time we wake up???

How could all of this have happened in such a short period of time? Simple.
Men and women who God called to lead his church and people have failed to do
so. Many of them deny the inspiration, inerrancy, and Truth of the Bible and
have led people to accept and condone what God clearly calls sin. Others
have chosen to preach a gospel of motivation and prosperity that tickles the
ears of the masses and garners them huge followings of people who don’t want
to hear about sin and sacrifice, only how to be successful and rich by this
world’s standards.

I watched Joel Osteen hawk his new book that gives people 7 keys to be
successful. Funny, not one of the 7 has a thing to do with Scripture or the
real success of a person, only temporal earthly success you would hear about
in a Tony Robbins meeting. How a pastor can sit on nationwide TV for an hour
and never ONCE utter the name of Jesus is actually a pretty amazing feat.
Sadly, because of his worldly success, you now have other “pastors” who go
on national TV and call themselves “life coaches” and other names, never
once mentioning the Bible or the name of Jesus or the fact that Christ is
man’s only hope now and for all eternity.

Still others have gravitated to a social gospel, seeking to solve the
problems of this fallen world like hunger and sickness and poverty, without
ever mentioning the greatest need a person has, to have a relationship with
Jesus since that “offends” people. These are noble causes but wasn’t it
Jesus who said “the poor you will always have with you.” That doesn’t mean
we don’t reach out to the poor and the sick, but the greatest need a man has
isn’t food and medicine, it is to know Jesus as their Savior. Too many who
are navigating the waters of the social gospel, have had to compromise the
absolutes of the Bible and create unholy alliances in order to do the work
they are doing.

Never before has our silence and failure to lead been as evident as in the
war we have lost regarding making the sin of homosexuality an acceptable
mainstream lifestyle choice. Don’t believe me? Dear Abby is now on board
stating that it is OK to be gay ( http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21212639/ ).
You say big deal, who cares what Dear Abby says? It is just another example
of a long standing cultural icon who has reinforced that this choice of
sexual activity is acceptable and even desirable!

In case you missed it, Harry Potter author JK Rowling revealed that her
character Albus Dumbledore, the headmaster of Hogwarts school for wizards in
training, is gay! She said her announcement was meant to help people become
more tolerant of gay people. So now the Potter books are not only helping to
educate children on how witchcraft, wizardry, and sorcery are acceptable,
but so is the choice by men to have sex with other men and women to have sex
with other women. All that is left is for Rowling to announce Hermione had
sex with Harry, got pregnant and had an abortion!

Need more? How about the new ad campaign in Italy (
http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=071024175433.inucp5pp&show_article=1
&catnum=0
) to help spread the lie that people are born gay. If you need to
be outraged today, check out this poster of a newborn baby with a wristband
that says HOMOSEXUAL to drive home the myth that people are born gay,
instead of telling the truth that taking your pants off to have sex is a
CHOICE!!!

How did we get to this place as a nation? Men and women God called to lead
who led the church into their own little subculture, apart from mainstream
society. We retreated behind the four walls of the church into the comfort
and prosperity of the “Christian trough,” something satan was only too eager
to let us do since it removed the “salt” and “light” from the marketplace
and left it to his wolves to ravage.

Now when we step out of our comfortable little subculture back into the real
world, we are faced with babies being slaughtered, men marrying men and
women marrying women, porn and gambling everywhere you turn, filthy language
accepted as normal conversation, all of the media vehicles being used to
carry Satan’s lies to the masses to insure their souls will end up in hell,
and parades to celebrate a sin like homosexuality!!!

I love you and care about you so much. The sad fact is, we can’t turn back
the hands of time. Things are never going to be the way they used to be.
Those days are gone and over. However, in the wake of this gross and
unbridled sin are the destroyed lives of real people who bought the sweet
lies of sin and are now paying the price for their rebellion to God. This is
a new opportunity for the church and for God’s people to be the true hope
and answer for those who are still breathing, whose lives have been
devastated by sin, and who yearn for the peace and joy that can only come
from having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

A byproduct of all this sin is the coming wrath of God and great persecution
on the church and God’s people. This is the time when all of the ways we
have figured out to divide ourselves will no longer be important, when those
who serve the Lord for mammon will fall away since it will no longer be
profitable, and those who aren’t serious about their faith will run from it.
Left will be a faithful remnant whose citizenship is not of this world and
whose goals are not earthly but Heavenly. It is this faithful group who will
help bring in a great harvest of souls as the final moments of human history
unfold.

My prayer for you today is that you become more bold in your witness for
Christ. Don’t emulate some of these so-called leaders who have been
programmed by their business handlers to never even utter the name of Jesus
so people aren’t offended and book sales aren’t hurt. It is at the name of
JESUS that every knee shall bow and every tongue confess Him Lord! The Bible
proclaims that there is only ONE NAME by which men are saved, the name of
JESUS! If we are ashamed of Jesus, He will be ashamed of us.

Take your stand for Jesus my friend, just like Oklahoma State Rep. Sally
Kern has. In a nation and world that has rejected our Lord and His Truth,
now more than ever He needs each one of his true followers to stand for Him.
Yes, this nation is no longer a Christian nation, and yes the war to stop
the sin of homosexuality from becoming mainstream has been lost, but when
this world as we know it comes to an end, sin will be defeated and the TRUTH
will prevail!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller bkeller@liveprayer.com
