Prayer to "the God of our many understandings"

Well, Episcopal bishop and open homosexual Gene V. Robinson has publicly connected the spiritual dots of the agenda of radical homosexuality and anti-biblical religiousity. His invocation prayer at the Inauguration of Barack Obama will be made without a Bible - which I take to mean without biblical reference or foundation. To my way of thinking, this proves the spiritual relationship of homosexuality is indeed of the Antichrist. The Bible tells us that homosexuality is not biological - it is driven by a spirit. No wonder it eludes scientific detection - it is not genetic.

But its rampant practice is one of the clearest signs of deep spiritual decay and bondage found in scripture. Thus, those who advocate its normalcy do so against biblical teaching. But even if one is a devoted secularist, intuitively, people sense something is "wrong" with it as a practice and a lifestyle. It defies natural law. It eludes scientific pinpointing. And because it's spiritual - one can detect the realignment of its agenda with a spiritual cover apart from the Christian majority in this country. Its agenda is now becoming openly apostate.

Mark my words, it will only be a matter of time before the agenda is militantly anti-Christian.

And for many homosexuals, this is just fine. Most gays were never comfortable with a Bible that condemns their lifestyle. Even the most radical biblical interpretations that sought to assert zero condemnation of sodomy in scripture have never found traction in the millions of pulpits and Bible studies around the country and abroad. Sodomy is - in most biblically plain-meaning and common sense renderings - ungodly, and therefore is sin. Not only do common churchgoers sense this, most so-called "gay churches" do not care to debate the issue. The Bible and homosexual practice are not compatible.

As for our society, homosexual practice is given place and a voice because of the American ideological virtue of tolerance. And tolerance is a very good thing - up to a point. But when the practice is given legal trump and begins to intrude more and more upon the liberty and practices of the thousands of Christian churches in this country, then will it become what it has always sought to be: a root virus of open sin and defiance against God. Never was this so in America, but it is becoming more so now than ever.

Bishop Gene Robinson's unbiblical prayer - despite his own insistence that it is not his conviction - is to be made to the "the god of our many understandings". It is an act of defiance against both the church that ordained him (or maybe not now) and against the good wishes of millions of Christians who pray daily for the health and weal of our nation. And despite his insistence that this prayer does not proceed from his own conviction, you can guarantee it will be a prayer the gay agenda will be confortable with. It will indeed be a prayer of tolerance, for sure. But it will be a prayer that calls no one to account for the Bible's view of sin; it will be a replacement prayer; a "civic" prayer to the god (or gods) who can neither hear, save, or judge.

The Bible calls that apostate. And I say - to paraphrase a popular football coach - the gay agenda is what we thought it was! It stands for radical change of morality; it is anti-Bible, anti-God, and Antichrist. Separate America from the Bible and you separate America from her soul. She cannot long endure, or exist without it.

Jer. 2:8-9
The priests said not, Where is the LORD? and they that handle the law knew me not: the pastors also transgressed against me, and the prophets prophesied by Baal, and walked after things that do not profit. Wherefore I will yet plead with you, saith the LORD, and with your children's children will I plead...

...Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? but my people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit. Be astonished, O ye heavens, at this, and be horribly afraid, be ye very desolate, saith the LORD.

Maranatha! Baruch Hashem! Soli Deo Gloria!
