There was actually a time when sin was in black and white. Today’s sin has got so many shades we can barely tell what is right and what is wrong! And the shades are so beautiful too, you can barely tell you are actually committing a sin!
And the avenues for sinning have also increased, especially with the rise of with social media popularity. You now don’t have to sin alone — sinning is now corporate! I have noted with a lot of concern that there are many things that are seeming ”normal’ but in real sense, they are sin — decorated and glorified!
I still can’t believe we are talking about THIS! But it is here with us, everywhere we turn. It even was the topic of discussion on TV this morning! Some of us may still be wondering what is wrong with homosexuality. I dare to say that it is the lowest form of degrading of ones body. While they are all over our faces telling us not to discriminate and not to tell them that something is wrong with them, I also feel the need to tell them not to rub their sick beliefs ob our faces!
I am a Christian. The bible tells me, (Warning: This is going to be a long quote 🙂
“The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
21For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.
24Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error…”
I have realized that Hollywood has an agenda! The agenda is to make homosexuality look so cool and casual we will never know it actually used to be wrong! So every movie and series they produce has a gay couple! I recently watched The Fosters and I couldn’t understand why they had to have two women as they parents! And when a little boy started developing ‘feelings’ for another boy, he was told that it is alright to be different! That he is o.k, there is nothing wrong with him! What??? There is everything wrong with him!
So I have made a resolve, a resolution of sorts; to not proceed to watch any movie if I notice they have a gay couple in it. I want my daughter to grow up knowing that homosexuality is a sin!
Witchcraft and Use of Mediums
I live in Mombasa and seeing a ‘mganga’ sign hung up on a tree is not news. Here they openly advertise their unusual business, complete with an arrow showing you where they are located. How many of you would dare visit them? I mean, these guys have declared themselves the ultimate business gurus, marriage fixers, medics extra-ordinary and even GPRS (did I hear they even find lost people?).
From the look of things these guys have gone digital too! Foretelling and use of mediums is now subtly percolating into our lives. If you are not being told when you will die and what will kill you, you are seeking to know how many kids you will have, or when you will get married, who is your true friend… They only come short of telling us when Jesus will come back!
This has also extended to movies and even cartoons — do we really need to talk about Harry porter?
Let us not be unaware of the devil’s schemes. “Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” 1 Peter 5:8.
What else have you noticed? Let’s help each other go to heaven 🙂
