” Christians” and Sodomy.____Pastor Ralph Ovadal.

“The changing ‘Christian’ view of sodomy highlighted and condemned”
[The following is an article written by Pastor Ralph Ovadal. It addresses a problem
that faces God’s people everywhere.]
There will be many conservative evangelicals, including pro-family leaders, who will rightly
condemn Rick Warren for his wicked remarks concerning sodomite Bishop Gene Robinson
(see below). But brethren, the ungodly errors of Rick Warren are rooted in, and nourished
by, the refusal of conservative evangelicals to stand by the Word of God themselves. The
standard evangelical–I should say new evangelical–teaching regarding homosexual acts
represents an abandonment of the law of God, including with regard to the function and
duty of civil government. The Lord teaches us throughout His Word that sodomite acts are
criminal acts, to be treated as such. See, for instance, in I Timothy 1:8-11. It is not the
lawful use of the law (I Tim. 1:8) when homosexual acts are protected by the civil government
as a “right” rather than punished as a criminal wrong. A Biblical Answer to Sodom
Until the mid 1960s, the perverted, unnatural acts sodomites commit were crimes in every
state in the United States of America. Next came the laws which prohibited “discrimination”
against open sexual perverts. And, on a side note, those statues were enacted in our state,
thanks to a coalition of liberals, sodomites, and Roman Catholic Archbishop Rembert Weakland
of Milwaukee. Then in a number of states, hate crime enhancement laws were
adopted. These laws elevated criminals to a status not enjoyed by moral, law-abiding citizens.
Now we are wondering how long will it be before hate speech laws will be passed in
some of the more liberal states of our beloved America. All of this has come about due to a
decriminalization of unnatural, filthy sexual acts.
But apparently, many new evangelicals have decided to fight fire with fire. They utterly refuse
to consider, or take the position, that sodomite acts must be recriminalized. Further,
they insist on sticking with their empty and untrue mantra that “gays and lesbians” ought
to have all the rights and privileges of every American, just no “special rights.” I won’t
even get into the wretched, heart-hardening doctrinal errors constantly vomited out by the
neo-evangelicals which in turn minimize the wickedness of sodomite acts, desensitizing
both the world and the church to acts which the Lord says are an abomination, filthy, lawless,
and grievous sin and which the shepherds of the Lord’s people in better times did not
hesitate to call beastly, filthy, and so vile as to not even name. For more details, click here.
It is significant that those evangelicals who insist on perpetuating the sort of errors I have
mentioned on behalf of sodomites–and quite frankly, with little regard even for the souls
of sodomites–would never consider applying those same standards to, say, rapists or child
pornographers. But of course, rapists and child pornographers do not make the grade under
the world’s “just do no harm to others and consenting adults” humanist philosophy
which has been also adopted by so many in the church. Now the same ones who refuse to
stand on the Word of God with regard to the decriminalization of sodomite acts and the
right of American citizens to refuse to rent to, hire, or do business with sexual criminals

will be outraged that Rick Warren has built upon the corrupt foundation they have laid and
taught to the nation. In that, Warren is at least the more consistent in his position.
And I will close this impromptu, I hope not too rambling, commentary by warning once
again that the Lord will never crown with victory a cause which does not first and always
honor His Word and seek His glory.

From CNN Associate Political Editor Rebecca Sinderbrand
(CNN) – Rick Warren offered an olive branch to another minister delivering an inaugural
invocation – an openly gay Episcopal bishop who had been critical of the evangelical pastor
over his support for California’s Proposition 8.
The California minister praised President-elect Obama’s selection of Eugene V. Robinson to
deliver the invocation at the kickoff inaugural event.
Obama “has again demonstrated his genuine commitment to bringing all Americans of
goodwill together in search of common ground,” Warren said in a statement released
Wednesday. “I applaud his desire to be the president of every citizen.”
Warren, who is delivering the invocation at the Tuesday swearing-in ceremony, drew fire
from some Obama supporters over his opposition to same sex marriage and abortion
rights.
Robinson had called Warren’s inclusion “really, really unfortunate” because of his support
for Proposition 8, which barred same-sex marriage.
“It’s about this particular venue and the role that he has in praying for all of America, and
I’m just not sure he’d pray to God the same way I would,” Robinson told Beliefnet last
month.
“This particular choice [of Warren] is not about having everyone at the table for a discussion
or some sort of general forum. Every choice related to who does what at the inauguration
is highly symbolic, and I think the transition team failed to ask the question of what,
symbolically, this might say to some of our citizens.”
Robinson said at the time his disappointment would not affect his plans to attend President
-elect Obama’s inauguration.

  1. Obama has the makings of another Hitler, Stalin & CO, lots of fine sounding rhetoric, but no substance.
    He fooled the American people by pretending to be everything Bush wasn’t, but the fact is, both are on the same side. The Billionaires who own the Federal Reserve Bank dictate how that country is ruled, & don’t think they don’t rule England & other parts of Europe. Do you remember what the Messiah did in Matthew 21:12? Yep! He chased the Federal Reserve Bank of Israel out of the Temple & later said, you can’t worship God & Mammon.
