Caspar McCloud: How shall we win the cultural wars if we are unwilling to win the spiritual and intellectual wars? — Far too many believers are standing on the sidelines of life as we watch the continual erosion of Christian values and influence upon our present society. From politics to business to educational values, the laws of morality are being bent and altered beyond what our parents and grandparents could have ever imagined. The media, the arts and entertainment has certainly played a part in what is now acceptable behaviour in public and it has blurred the lines of what is good and what is evil. It has pushed the boundaries to a point of where unhealthy perversions in various forms now appear acceptable and normal behaviours

How shall we win the cultural wars if we are unwilling to win the spiritual and intellectual wars? It appears to me far too many believers are standing on the sidelines of life as we watch the continual erosion of Christian values and influence upon our present society. From politics to business to educational values, the laws of morality are being bent and altered beyond what our parents and grandparents could have ever imagined. The media, the arts and entertainment has certainly played a part in what is now acceptable behaviour in public and it has blurred the lines of what is good and what is evil. It has pushed the boundaries to a point of where unhealthy perversions in various forms now appear acceptable and normal behaviours.

There is a stern warning we read in Isaiah 5:20, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

We as a nation and world are reaping what we have sown. For all such ideas and all beliefs have consequences and we the church can no longer afford look the other way.

When the Apostle Paul came to Athens he was greatly grieved at what he saw around him. We read in Acts 17:16, “Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred in him, when he saw the city wholly given to idolatry.” Paul did not just walk away discouraged by these ungodly behaviours and things he saw there, instead he challenged the men of his day. As we read in Acts 17: 22, “Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. 23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.”

Here was the city of Athens so confused they made it a capital offense to preach the truth about Jesus. So Paul in a brilliant move in the Holy Spirit simply used this inscription as text to help him declare that “THE UNKNOWN GOD”, they did not know was in fact the GOD he was representing. I offer you again James 1:22, “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.” The Lord Jesus/Yeshua said in John 10:27,” My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:”

Fight back overcomers, trust Papa God for every detail and stay in faith! Jesus said in Luke 21:15, “For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.’ I say hallelujah! Because “All”, things are possible with God!

I pray the Lord’s supernatural peace, healing, provision and protection cover you always with oceans of agape love in the almighty name of Jesus/Yeshua!

My response to: Nathan Albert – “Embracing Love – My Journey to Hugging a Man in His Underwear” | Talks at Google

I just wrote this comment in response to this Talks at Google video:

“Union with the Divine” requires holiness — “without holiness no one will see the Lord.” Heterosexual lusting is also a sin that will keep us from heaven if we don’t repent. | Jesus stopped the Pharisees from stoning the prostitute, and then he told her: “go and sin no more.” | Many “Christians” are not actual Christians (led by the HOLY Spirit, followers of Christ). HATING ANYONE IS SIN. We must LOVE all. | Here’s the key: This is a spiritual war with unseen but completely real demons. Demons drive homosexuality, and the end result of all unrepentant sin is hell. Homosexuality is a demonically driven sin. We must be free, and can be! “Submit to God; resist the Devil, and he will flee.” FREEDOM!!! I wrote this:

“LUST ‘the poison that kills the soul’ FREEDOM! My experience: How DEMONS DRIVE heterosexual and homosexual lust in ‘Christians’ — The bad news is that demons drive lust. The good news is that demons drive lust, because freedom lies straight ahead!

Nathan Albert: “Embracing Love: My Journey to Hugging a Man in His Underwear” | Talks at Google

Published on Jul 13, 2017

Nathan Albert stood with friends along the Chicago Pride Parade route, bearing signs of apology on behalf of Christians who had failed to represent Christ’s love to the LGBTQ community. Little did he know that millions around the world would soon see him captured in an iconic photograph hugging a man in his underwear (photo: http://goo.gl/jQZXqC). Embracing Love is the story behind that photograph, the story of a musical theatre actor turned pastor who shares personal and pastoral stories of the LGBTQ community. He invites readers past the intimidation of controversy for the sake of embracing people with the love of Jesus.

(video) Richard Anderson: “Be Perfect”…..Means, DO NOT SIN! :)

And it’s not only having sex, but lusting, JESUS said in Matthew 5:27-30:

“YE HAVE HEARD that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: BUT I SAY unto you, That whosoever LOOKETH on a woman TO LUST after her hath COMMITTED ADULTERY with her already IN HIS HEART. And IF thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is PROFITABLE FOR THEE THAT ONE OF THY MEMBERS SHOULD PERISH, AND NOT THAT THY WHOLE BODY SHOULD BE CAST INTO HELL. And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast INTO HELL.”
