Sin, we must remember, is the breaking of God’s moral law (1 John 3:4). In this sense, all sin is the same. Every sin misses the mark of God’s holy righteous standards and falls short of his glory (Romans 3:23). Not all sin, however, solicits the same response from heaven. For instance, it is not for every sin that God threatens to turn people over to a reprobate mind. Yet, he warned those who practiced homosexuality that this was a clear and present danger (Romans 1:26-28). It does not mean that those enslaved by homosexual lust cannot be freed and forgiven. If the person repents, God’s tender mercies are present to redeem. It simply means this particular sin is far more dangerous if humanity persists in this perversion. The same danger holds true in the case of child sacrifice and the shedding of innocent blood….. Search the Scriptures and run references on the topic “innocent blood.” Perhaps God will be pleased to break your heart, open your eyes, convict your soul, and recruit you to be a good soldier of Jesus Christ to help end the hellish practice of abortion defiling our land.

The Brilliance of God’s Law in a Dark Nation

Written by Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas on Friday, 27 December 2013.

America desperately needs the church to restore the value, significance, and purpose of God’s law if we are to thrive again as a people.

“But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people” (Jeremiah 31:33).

A biblical worldview is impossible without an understanding of and appreciation for the law of God. I pray this particular article will reproduce in the reader that which was present in the heart of King David. He exclaimed, “O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day” (Psalm 119:97).

I must confess, the older I get, the more precious the law of God becomes. I agree completely with the sentiment of King David, “O how I love thy law!” As a young Christian man, my heart panted for miracles, signs, wonders, and spiritual gifting. Though I still desire God to manifest himself in power and in demonstration of the Holy Ghost, as I mature in the faith, however, the more I appreciate the veracity of God’s commandments (1 Corinthians 2:4).

In the Robin Hood movie with Russell Crowe this amazing statement was pronounced, “In the days of lawlessness, those who keep the law, become the outlaws.” It is therefore imperative that we develop a healthy understanding of God’s Law. It will be our wisdom and enable us to negotiate successfully through life’s challenges.

Far too many modern day Christians use the New Testament as an escape clause from obeying the law of God. Yes, grace is a beautiful thing, but we still must reverence the place, position, and role God’s commandments have in God’s Kingdom. In short, we must honor the brilliance of God’s law.

As a way of example, let me share an experience that led to a deeper veneration for God’s law in the midst of our perverse and crooked nation. Years ago, while ministering in front of a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Houston, Texas, I came face-to-face with a couple who confessed Christ as Lord and Savior, yet were determined to murder their baby, contrary to the Sixth Commandment, “Thou shalt not murder!” With tears streaming down my face, I pleaded with them to honor God’s law and spare themselves and their baby the horror of abortion. They proceeded to rationalize, excuse, deny, and justify the lawlessness of their action. They told me in no uncertain terms, “Our Jesus is not condemning like your Jesus and he will forgive us.”

Besides threatening to commit what King David termed, the presumptuous sin, they concocted a “Jesus” to suit their lawless Christianity. In one way, they were absolutely right; their “Jesus” would not condemn them. Why? Because it was a “Jesus” of their imagination and not the Jesus of the Book. I am not saying that if they came to genuine repentance that the Jesus of the Bible would refuse to forgive them. Not at all! God is love and stands ready to forgive men when they truly repent. Though this is certainly true, it does not mean that God will remove the consequences for violating his Holy Law. I know many Christians, including myself, who can testify to this painful reality.

As they went in to commit the unspeakable, with deep grieving in my soul, I sought solace in God. Expecting comfort from the Holy Spirit for upholding his truth, the Lord instead rebuked me. You read this right. He rebuked me, and as far as I know, did not rebuke them. The nature of the rebuke centered on the fact that this couple’s rebellion against God’s law was the result of many pulpits in America. The Lord reminded me that this couple was symptomatic of messages that I and countless other pastors had preached. They were the by-product of the easy “believeism,” which has turned God’s grace into licentiousness. It has led to what the Apostle Paul warned against. “And not rather, (as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say,) Let us do evil, that good may come? Whose damnation is just” (Romans 3:8). Much of what plagues the American church today is due to this antinomian error.

In stark contrast, the Apostle Paul taught, “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world” (Titus 2:11-12).

God’s grace is the power to do what is right in his sight. Since God’s law alone reveals what is right and what is wrong, what is good and what is evil, the grace of God therefore empowers us to fulfill the righteous requirements contained therein (Romans 8:4). We must remember as well that God’s holy and righteous character is revealed in his law. You cannot separate God’s character from his commandments. It is impossible, but that does not seem to stop the church in America from attempting it.

Dismissing God’s Law

It is clear from the opening scripture, God’s will for the New Covenant is to place his law in our “inward parts” and to write it in our “hearts.” Unfortunately, for many in the American church this truth does not resonate well. If you were to ask the typical, modern-day Christian the purpose for the New Covenant, you would hear the primary purpose is to establish a way to heaven-a way for eternal souls to escape the torments of hell when they die. Although this is a legitimate perspective from our viewpoint of self-preservation, it is not the primary purpose according to God’s perspective.

Some may question how God’s intention to write his laws on our hearts squares with the

New Testament teaching that plainly states we “are not under the law, but under grace” (Romans 6:14). This is an excellent question, especially in light of the antinomian view of the law of God so prevalent today.

A person who is antinomian is someone who rejects the validity of moral laws, someone who opposes or dismisses God’s law. There is a distinction between strict and implicit antinomians. Strict antinomians are the unconverted, unsaved souls who show contempt by brazenly disregarding God’s law. The Apostle Paul affirms this truth, “Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be” (Romans 8:7). Implicit antinomians are professing Christians who hold that God’s law is not relevant in the present era. They typically substitute subjective, arbitrary standards for God’s clear commands. Both views are wrong biblically.

When the Apostle Paul wrote we “are not under the law, but under grace,” he was revealing two important revelations every person should grasp. They are profound and full of unspeakable glory. First, we are not under law as a means of securing God’s salvation. We are saved by God’s amazing grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone. Salvation is the gift of God (Ephesians 2:8).

In other words, we do not keep the law as a means to obtain God’s salvation; we keep God’s law because we are saved. We are not performing good works to earn God’s redemption. Good works are simply evidence that we have partaken of God’s redemption.

After the Apostle Paul declared salvation by grace through faith. He proceeded to teach, “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10). This fulfills Christ’s command. He stated, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).

These truths distinguish Christianity from every other false religion. Again, it is through grace we are saved. We cannot earn our way to God. Religion is man’s way toward God. In his pride, man seeks God based upon his own terms. He tries to be good, go to church, be charitable, or perhaps live in a cave as a recluse to achieve Nirvana. Regardless, even if man attempts to do good, it is for his glory and not God’s. Christianity, however, is radically different. It is not man seeking God. It is God seeking man. Jesus stated, “For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost”(Luke 19:10.

Salvation, therefore, is not based upon man’s merit, what he does or does not do. It is based upon the merits of Jesus Christ. To the Jews, this is a stumbling block and to the Gentiles foolishness, but to those of us being saved, it is the power of God (1 Corinthians 1:18-23).

When Paul states we are not under law, he is testifying as well that Christians are no longer subject to the curse of the law and its deadly penalty. Christ indeed redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us that the blessing of Abraham might be ours in Jesus’ holy name (Galatians 3:10-14).

What then should be the response of the church in light of these truths? Should we dismiss and break God’s law because we are not under the law but under grace? Paul declares, “God forbid.” In fact, in an earlier passage in the book of Romans, Paul settles the relationship between law and grace, once and for all, by maintaining, “Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law” (Romans 3:31). Clearly, Paul was not antinomian in his view of the law of God.

The Threefold Purpose: The Law as Tutor

There is a three-fold purpose for the law of God. If our purpose is to advance the cause of Christ and his kingdom, it is important we value each one. First, Paul tells us plainly in Galatians 3:24, “Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. This truth confirms Psalm 19:7, which reads, “The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul.” In Romans, Paul tells us where there is no law; there is no sin. Where there is no sin, who in his right mind would perceive his need for a Savior?

The law of God is like a mirror, designed to reveal man’s sinful state. Of course, once the law serves its purpose to show man his dreadful condition apart from God, it would be foolish to try to use the “mirror” to wash away sins. The law at that point will only lacerate the souls of men and further condemn them by misusing the ministration of death (2 Corinthians 3:7). We need something else to cleanse and purify us.

Man needs blood to live. This is true physically. It is also true spiritually. Whether we like it or not, ours is a bloody religion. Beginning with God slaying the animals to cover Adam and Eve after the fall, to the sacrificial system set up under the Mosaic Dispensation, to the final sacrifice by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, one theme rings true through it all. Without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sins (Hebrew 9:22).

Based upon these spiritual realities, the first call of a good evangelist is to get people lost, not found. Sinners must fully comprehend the bad news before they will be able to treasure the good news. Unless a sinner realizes his wretched state apart from God, he has no true incentive to seek God’s salvation. Once a man is made aware of his sinful state, it is time to share the good news, the gospel message of Jesus Christ.

The law of God is therefore an essential ally in evangelism. The law of God is to be an unyielding, immutable, and hard taskmaster that drives men to the mercy seat of God. The law of God diagnoses our sick, sinful nature, while the grace of God is presented as the cure. The law of God reveals man is drowning in a sea of perdition. God’s grace is lovingly offered as the only lifesaver to pull us out of the mire, set our feet upon the rock, Christ, which in turn, creates a new song in our hearts (Psalm 40:2, 3). It is a song that we must sing in this generation that is in rebellion to God’s holy laws.

We see law and grace working in conjunction throughout the Gospels as Jesus dealt with the spectrum of lost humanity. When dealing with arrogant Pharisees, smug lawyers, and those who trusted in their own “righteousness,” our Lord would always refer them back to the law of God, even when they were enquiring about salvation. To the Pharisees, his message was “go and learn” the law of God, instead of “come to me.” Why is that?

Jesus knew what the church in America has ignored for years. Unless the law of God prepares and produces a broken, contrite, and repentant heart, the likelihood of salvation is greatly diminished. On the other hand, when Jesus came across those whose hearts were tender, smitten, and under conviction, he would extend to them his grace and mercy. Jesus gave the law to hardened sinners and mercy to broken-hearted sinners. As Christians, we need to discern between the two and minister accordingly. Jude states, “And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh” (Jude 22-23).

God’s Law as a Measure of Obedience

Secondly, the law of God is to be the divine pattern by which the converted soul reorients his life. Once the saving grace of God has done its eternal work in the heart of man, the law of God serves as a measure of our obedience in Christ. Again, it is not the means of justification. Obedience to the law for the believer provides evidence that our confession of faith and love toward God is authentic.

In fact, it is the lawless Christian Jesus denounces in Matthew. He warns:

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” (Matthew 7:21-23).

Iniquity, in this case, means lawlessness. Obviously, lawless Christianity is an oxymoron. According to Jesus, anyone who confesses him and practices lawlessness will not enter the kingdom of heaven.

Jesus further stated, “He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me” (John 14:21). The Apostle John reiterated this standard and provided us with a test to prove whether we truly know God, “And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him” (1 John 2:3-4). Additionally, the Apostle Paul taught that true love, which does no harm to a neighbor, is the fulfillment of the law of God (Romans 13:10). It is clear from the Bible that apart from God’s law, man cannot know how to love God or others.

God’s Law is Binding Upon All People, at All Times and in All Nations

Civil government is a delegated authority, which is subject to God’s supreme authority. The Apostle Paul declares that they are God’s ministers assigned to be a terror against evildoers and protect those who are good in God’s sight (Romans 13:1-4). If they refuse to uphold and enforce God’s law, the scriptures reveal the severe consequence. Proverbs 17:15 warns, “He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD.”

Isaiah 10:1, 2 declares:

Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed; to turn aside the needy from judgment, and to take away the right from the poor of my people, that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless!

America is learning this lesson the hard way as governmental leaders reject God’s law in favor of humanistic “law.” Whether earthly governments accept it or not, the law of God is binding upon all people, at all times, and in every nation. As Christians, we must understand neutrality is a myth; someone is always legislating morality. The question is whose premise of right and wrong, ethics, morality, and philosophy of law undergird our laws. As God alone is the lawgiver, the choice before men and nations is either to uphold or to break God’s universal laws.

In 1787, James Madison proposed a three-way division of American government, a separation of powers, at the Constitutional Convention. He desired to establish a proper check and balance to hold government accountable to their proper jurisdictions and curb their tendency towards tyranny. He came to this innovation through his biblical worldview, the fallen nature of men, and scripture. Madison read Isaiah 33:22, “For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lord is our king; he will save us.” As a result, our nation was afforded protections guaranteed not so much by our Bill of Rights but by God, himself.

Perhaps, Madison, was familiar with 1 Timothy 1:9-11, which states:

Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind (homosexuals), for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

In this passage the Apostle Paul succinctly gives an apologetic for the purpose of God’s law in the New Testament. It was given for the lawless and the unrighteous. He then goes on to list the specific sinful, criminal behavior the law of God condemns according to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Apart from the law of God, there is no way man can establish a just and orderly society that will obtain the blessings, wholeness, and soundness of God. Both William Blackstone, the English jurist who was the inspiration behind the Declaration of Independence’s statement, “The law of nature and nature’s God,” and Martin Luther King Jr. agreed.

Blackstone stated, “Upon these two foundations, the law of nature (the eternal laws of good and evil) and the law of revelation (found only in the scriptures), depend all human laws. That is to say, no human laws should be allowed to contradict these.”

In other words, any human law that is not rooted in these two underlying premises for law is no law at all. More recently, Martin Luther King Jr. affirmed this truth. He gave this apologetic on law:

There are two types of law: just and unjust. I would be the first advocate obeying just laws. One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws. I would agree with St. Augustine that ‘an unjust law is no law at all.’ Now what is the difference between the two? How does one determine whether a law is just or unjust? A just law is a man made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of St. Thomas Aquinas: An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law.

The Law is our Wisdom

Where there is God’s Word, there is wisdom. The Apostle Paul declares that Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh, is our wisdom, “But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption” (1 Corinthians 1:30). The book of Proverbs is the book of God’s wisdom. It was written from the perspective of a kingly father determined to pass a righteous scepter of leadership to his children. It is a multi-generational vision of passing the wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of God from one generation to the next. The New Testament reveals Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords. He is the rightful ruler of the universe. His decrees, commands, and statutes proceed from his lawful authority. Every king, in their capacity as ruler, issues decrees for his domain. Typically, these commands are binding upon its citizens, unless, of course, they are tyrannical in nature. All earthly kings, regardless of how large or small their domains, must reign in such a way that their governments fall within the parameters of God’s law. King David lived by this standard and was considered a man after God’s own heart.

Psalm 119 is David’s tribute to the law of God. As partially recorded in the beginning of this chapter, David declared:

O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day. Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me. I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation. I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts” (Psalm 119:97-100).

David understood more than his teachers and the “ancients” because he treasured God’s law. Would to God, Christians today would have that same longing for the law of God. Would to God, Christians today were wiser than the world. Would to God, kingdom leaders would arise to become wiser than the worldly wise.

Moses concurred and wrote that the law of God is our wisdom before the nations:

Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the Lord my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it. Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people” (Deuteronomy 4:5-9).

In reading these verses, we learn that keeping the law of God will cause other nations to praise us. At one time, America was the envy of the world. How do the nations view us today as we have abandoned God’s Law? As the great eighteenth century Bible commentator, Matthew Henry, stated, “Those that magnify the law will be magnified by it.”

A final note on the law of God; Jesus stated:

Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 5:17-19).

Jesus taught there is another way to be great in God’s kingdom besides servanthood (Mark 10:44). It is by keeping the commandments of God and instructing others to keep them as well. Jesus promised, “The same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:19).

America desperately needs the church to restore the value, significance, and purpose of God’s law if we are to thrive again as a people. We need leaders who honor the law of God and teach others entrusted to their care to do the same. Like Moses, King David, and our Lord, great leaders of men love, obey, and teach God’s law! To become a leader a time like this demands, we should do no less!

In light of the Phil Robertson controversy for speaking his mind on the sin of homosexuality, I decided to release a part of our latest book, Abortion Violation, that reveals the homosexual agenda is part and parcel of spreading the culture of death savaging our nation. If you find any merit, please pass it on in your sphere of influence. Thanks!

Political Left and the Homosexual Agenda

The severe consequences of violating God’s law can be observed in America’s declension. For example, examine this boast by homosexuals that appeared in the Gay Community News on Feb 5, 1987. Written by Michael Swift, The Gay Manifesto has since been reprinted in numerous publications. Here is a startling sample:

We shall sodomize your sons …we will seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries, in your youth groups, in your movie theatres and bathrooms…wherever men are together. All laws banning homosexuality will be revoked. Be careful when you speak of homosexuality because we are among you. The family unit will be abolished. All churches who condemn us will be closed. Our only gods are handsome young men.

Clearly, this demonic pronouncement presents a bona fide danger to our children’s future. What is most pressing for us to discern, however, is whether homosexuals are accomplishing their stated goals. Just a cursory view of society reveals they are executing their mission with apparent ease. It appears they possess the Midas touch, both culturally and politically.

Unbeknownst to the homosexual movement, the political and cultural “gold” they have accumulated is starting to corrode. In the futility of their minds, homosexuals cannot see that all that sparkles is not pure bullion. Their willful ignorance and darkened hearts cause them to live in a state of denial. They refuse to entertain the possibility that their perverted schemes are built upon sinking sand and are broken cisterns that cannot hold polluted water (Matthew 7:24-27, Jeremiah 2:13).

Romans 1:21-27 warns:

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever (Remember the gods they worship are handsome young men). 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.

The pejorative term for those who practice homosexuality is faggot, which means a bundle of sticks or twigs for burning. Although the etymology behind the term is unclear, from a biblical perspective, the term fits. Homosexuality is the “burning out” of man. However, in another very real sense, it speaks to the demise of mankind. Historically, the proliferation of homosexuality signaled the end of empires and civilizations (Rome, Greece, and the pagan nations in the Ancient Near East). America, it seems, is hell bent to join this League of Nations who collapsed from within due to moral corruption.

In millenniums past, civilizations outlawed sodomy and condemned the practice as a crime. America is ignoring thousands of years of traditional jurisprudence to make mainstream what was considered unspeakable in times past. The more the sodomite agenda wins the day, the more homosexuals and our nation suffer. The statistics are staggering. The adverse effects of homosexuality have become a public health nightmare.

As you view the following statistics, keep in mind that many are presenting to our youth that this lifestyle is perfectly normal and should be embraced if they so choose. These same folks will warn the youth about the dangers of smoking, texting while driving, and purposely ignore the dangers associated with this destructive lifestyle.

First, the promiscuity among homosexuals is legendary. Monogamy is a foreign practice to most homosexuals. Despite their push for “gay marriage,” which is an oxymoron, the majority of those who practice homosexuality crave numerous “partners.” Why do they pursue this compulsive avarice? Lust is never content. Proverbs warns, “Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied (Proverbs 27:20).” Whereas the average heterosexual man has six sexual partners, according to a study by Paul Van de Ven, et al., in the Journal of Sex Research, “The modal range for number of male sexual partners ever [for homosexuals] was 101-500.” Another 10.2 percent to 15.7 percent had between 501 and 1,000 partners.

Secondly, homosexuals engage in risky behavior-behavior that has unleashed a torrent of sexually transmitted diseases. Homosexual and bisexual acts are still chiefly responsible for the transmission of HIV/AIDS. According to the CDC, homosexuals represent approximately 2 percent of the population, “yet are the population most severely affected by HIV and are the only risk group in which new HIV infections have been increasing steadily since the early 1990s.”

In 2006, homosexual men “accounted for more than half (53 percent) of all new HIV infections in the United States.” Homosexuals and bisexuals “with a history of injection drug use…accounted for an additional 4 percent of new infections.” That means 57 percent of new infections originate from 2 percent of the population! Statistics prove “since the beginning of the US epidemic,” homosexuals and bisexuals “have consistently represented the largest percentage of persons diagnosed with AIDS and persons with an AIDS diagnosis who have died.” In addition, “The rate of new HIV diagnoses” for homosexuals “is more than 44 times that of other men.” These sobering statistics foreshadow a tragic end to those who seek to normalize this abominable sexual practice.

Thirdly, the homosexual lifestyle breeds violence. Homosexuals sow and reap violence far beyond the national average. Their lifestyle is a magnet for aggression. Dr. Paul Cameron, of the Family Research Institute, writes, “The top six U.S. male serial killers were all gay.” He cites a study that shows “of 518 sexually-tinged mass murders in the U.S. from 1966 to 1983 determined that 350 (68%) of the victims were killed by those who practiced homosexuality and that 19 (44%) of the 43 murderers were bisexuals or homosexuals.”

According to another survey conducted by the Public Health Agency of Canada, “The rate of spousal violence reported between same-sex couples was twice the rate of violence between heterosexual couples.”

Cameron commenting on the scourge of child molestation determined, “Between 15% to 40% of statutory rape (child molestation) involves homosexuality.” As you read these alarming statistics, keep in mind that homosexuals only make up 2 percent of the population.

The author of over ninety scientific articles and the books The Gay Nineties and Exposing the AIDS Scandal, Cameron maintains:

In line with traditional psychiatric opinion, violence goes hand-in-hand with the “gay” lifestyle. Almost all the exposure by homosexuals to violence and disease is encountered in the gay subculture. Most of the murderers in the lifespan study whose sexual orientation could be determined were also homosexual. While violence toward homosexuals is deplorable, most violence involving gays is self-induced (and the gay subculture may export more violence than it absorbs from without).

If one visited an emergency room in any major city with a high population of homosexuals, one would be aghast at their absolute disregard for the limits of the human body. To obtain sexual gratification, it is not permissible to mention the abuse they commit to disfigure, mutilate, and mar their bodies. Interestingly enough, the term the King James Version of the Bible ascribes to the sin and crime of homosexuality is “abusers of themselves with mankind.” What the Scriptures teach, the emergency room verifies.

Lastly, the average homosexual life span is about half the life span of the average heterosexual. Indeed, the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23). The evidence that homosexual sin is an abomination to God is not only revealed by national statistics, but more importantly by God’s Word itself. Psalm 55:23 warns, “But thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in thee.” The Left seeks to sanitize and normalize this lifestyle, which leads to devastation; first, upon those who practice it and subsequently upon a nation that condones it.

I love this plea to the church in Mississippi to join the fight. I think it applies to the church at large in America. “Are you a prayer warrior, come pray. Do you desire to worship God in spirit and truth? Come sing God’s praises at the darkest place in Mississippi. Are you a young man desiring to preach? Come preach to the wall at this death camp. Are you a woman that does not want other women to suffer by taking the life of their own children? Come be a sidewalk counselor to lead women to choose life and not death, blessing and not cursing.”

Open Letter to Mississippi

To the State of Mississippi: Your great state stands on the verge of making history. There is one death camp, abortion mill, remaining defiling the land. It is located at 2903 N State St Jackson, MS 39216. Though you may be low in other areas as compared to other states, you can lead the nation where it matters most, in the cause of righteousness. Proverbs 14:34 states, “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin condemns any people.”

The eyes of America are upon you. Abortion began in America when Mississippi passed the first “law” that allowed for abortion in case of rape in 1966. This opened the door for other states to follow and eventually to Roe vs. Wade. The toll this murderous rampage has taken upon our nation is immense. You can be the first state set free from the curse of blood guiltiness. Since it started in Mississippi, how powerful would it be, if it ended in Mississippi? Certainly, this is a dream worth making a reality.

To the Church in Mississippi: There are a few Christians in Mississippi who have answered the call. They are loving their neighbor as themselves, rescuing those unjustly sentenced to death, and speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves (Matthew 22:36-40, Proverbs 24:11, 12, 31:8, 9). They have borne the brunt of the battle and they need your help to end the holocaust in Mississippi. This open letter asks you to please rise up and join them at the gates of hell with the sure knowledge that they will not prevail against the church of the Living God (Matthew 16:18).

Are you a prayer warrior, come pray. Do you desire to worship God in spirit and truth? Come sing God’s praises at the most darkest place in Mississippi. Are you a young man desiring to preach? Come preach to the wall at this death camp. Are you a woman that does not want other women to suffer by taking the life of their own children? Come be a sidewalk counselor to lead women to choose life and not death, blessing and not cursing.

To the Governor on Mississippi: Governor Bryant, you have come into the Kingdom for such a time as this. The need for godly statesmanship is desperately needed today. You were willing to stand for Mississippi as a Lower Magistrate to defend your citizen’s rights to bear arms against federal tyranny. We implore you to do the same for your most vulnerable, weakest, and defenseless citizens in Mississippi, the preborn child in the womb being led to the slaughter. While the courts are playing fast and loose with the law, babies are still being murdered and women harmed. We implore you to summon the courage and apply your executive authority to shut down that death camp once and for all.

To the Police in Jackson, Mississippi: The unholy alliance between you and Jackson Women’s Health Organization must end. Your divine calling as a Minister of God is to protect those who are good and punish evildoers (Romans 13:1-4). Your sacred trust is to protect life and stop the shedding of innocent blood (Genesis 9:6). Roe vs. Wade codified evil into law and betrayed your sacred trust. You now use your authority to protect baby murderers, abortionists, and punish Christians who are trying to save their lives. In this, you have become the lawbreaker, while Christians remain law keepers.

Jesus warned, “Blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel” (Matthew 23:24)! You strain at a gnat by arresting Christians for signs touching the ground or for sitting on a chair and charging them with obstructing the sidewalk, while swallowing a camel, little boys and girls made in the image of God are massacred and thrown away like a piece of trash. Just doing your job will not pass muster when your stand before God to give an account as His minister. We advise you to repent, wield the sword in justice to end this injustice and protect life as God has ordained.

To Jackson Women’s Health Organization: No doubt you see the writing on the wall. Desperate times call for desperate measures. In your mad pursuit to keep the blood money flowing, you have entered a very dangerous realm called Blasphemy. In this, you are in danger of God turning you over to a reprobate mind (Romans 1:28). If or when He does, your eternal fate will be sealed.

Recently, you portrayed yourselves as Christians who are doing the Lord’s work. This is blasphemy in the highest order. In essence, you are saying the evil spirit that operates through you to kill, steal, and destroy is God’s Holy Spirit. Jesus warned, “Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men.Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come” (Matthew 12:31, 32).

It is one thing to murder God’s babies for blood money. You are most certainly cursed (Deuteronomy 27:25). It is another thing entirely, however, when you lie about God, impugn His holy, righteous character, and make God complicit in your sins and crimes. It is our prayer that you will fear God and depart from this evil. Otherwise, you will certainly face the terror of the Lord and His holy wrath (2 Corinthians 5:11). We take no pleasure in your eternal damnation. Please repent of your murders and blasphemies before it is too late.
