Today, at a vote of 5-4, our nation’s Supreme Court passed a law that would give abomination the right of away in our nation. Today, before the highest court in our land, God’s Word was given no credence as we witness the unfolding of Romans 1:28. “And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;” Is there still hope for America?
I cannot control the Supreme Court, nor can I control the lawmakers of our land as a whole, but I can be a voice. I can take a stand for right in truth in this dark day of our nation. I fully believe that as long as there are men in this nation who are willing to take the stand for right, to win souls, to preach the Word of God, then there is still hope for America.
On this day of “celebration” among the “rainbow ranks” let me make one thing clear. SODOMY IS SIN! It may no longer be against the laws of this nation, but it is still a direct violation of God’s Law. Young Preachers of America will stand by this truth, and will be a voice to encourage the young men of God who will also take this stand in our country.
Before I am labeled as hateful, and this site tagged as hateful, let us reiterate what God’s Word says about the matter.
“Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;” (Romans 1:25-28)
“Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.” (Jude 1:7-8)
God hates Sodomy; it is an abomination before Him, it is a perversion of marriage, it as an attack on the family, it is straight out of Hell.
SO THE QUESTION…SHOULD WE GIVE UP ON OUR NATION?
I believe the answer is “no”
Yet, what should we do?
PRAY – First of all we must pray. Our leaders have made a terrible ruling today, but I wonder how many a Christian prayed for these men to make the appropriate decision today? What good would prayer do? Proverbs says, “The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.”
PREACH – This is not the time for Preachers to try to take the low road in their pulpits concerning the matter. God’s Word must be brought before the people of God and preached so that the they might be stabilized as to what God has said concerning the matter at hand.
Fulfill the Great Commission – If this nation will be spared, it’s people must be saved. We must continue to preach the gospel in the highways and hedges. We must keep knocking on doors, we must keep passing out tracts, we must keep winning souls, we must keep baptizing the saved, and we must teaching the new converts to grow in the Lord.
Practice Righteousness – C.H. Spurgeon once said, “That very church which the world likes best is sure to be that which God abhors.” If we are going to make a difference in this nation, than we must live righteously and keep worldliness out of our lives and out of our churches. If we practice Godliness, God will bless. “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.” Proverbs 14:34
If our nation is to be saved, it will not be done from the Whitehouse, but rather the Church House. It will not come from America’s President, but rather her Preachers, not from her Constitution but from her Bible. America’s destiny will not be changed by her voters, but rather by her Christians.

“I don't like to hear cut and dried sermons. No - when I hear a man preach, I like to see him act as if he were fighting bees.” - Abraham Lincoln
"We are too busy to pray, and so we are too busy to have power. We have a great deal of activity, but we accomplish little; many services but few conversions; much machinery but few results." ~R.A. Torrey
