On MSNBC, Olbermann made a plea for fairness to gays last night, saying they had the right to all that marriage provides. Mudrageous has printed the whole thing on my previous post, as a comment. There isn't anything there except an appeal to maudlin sentimentality and compassion that kills. For no matter what recognition the state gives, the wages of sin is STILL death! Homosexual approval will help to march these people straight to Hell when they die --if they don't see the light before then and come to the realization that it is the devil's lie that they had to be gay. They had choice in the beginning. God can still deliver them.
Keith quotes Darrow quoting a Persian poet --a very appropriate quote --about the poet preferring the Book of Love to having his name in the Book Above.
The Bible clearly says that the Book Above IS the Book of Love and the Book that counts --for Eternity. It is God's love for us that writes our name in the book above --the Lamb's Book of Life. Jesus sacrificed His life by God's will --that we may be in that book by believing in Him. There is no greater love than His for us.
He is calling homosexuals to wholeness --to truth --to his purpose for their bodies --not this sham half-life and imitation marriage that produces nothing but death --eternal death if they miss "the book above" --temporal death by the risks inherent in the lifestyle.
Satan is the great deceiver and he uses people like Keith Olbermann --obviously --because there is no alternative Book of Love --except The Book Above.
Well, I should say that the Bible is The Book of Love --but not the same one in which our names are written. That is a record of the REdeemed for Eternity --kept by the Lamb, Jesus Christ.
There is a maudlin sentimentality and compassion that is disingenous and misplaced when we think homosexuals really want and really need to have their couplings sanctified by "marriage." It won't help them be less lonely --or help them feel more normal and legitimate. Sin brings guilt and estrangement from God and nothing they can do ceremonially will fix it --until they repent and see that they have exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshipped the creature instead of Creator.
"God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance and have eternal life."--the Bible
