The Constitution prohibits an establishment of religion, not morals. Morals are a part of any good law. Laws protect people from eachother and set safe boundaries. We live in a time where people want to be free from reasonable restrictions and push so hard to legalize a decriminalize behavior that really is not real freedom but just wants, wishes and whims of a generation that doesn’t take no for an answer. There is a huge difference between rights and obsurd wishes.

God’s Solution

Man’s solution to sin in the world is politics, God’s solution is Christ on the cross. Laws can restrain evil but the cross can crucify it.

Romans 8:3 For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in sinful man, 4 in order that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the Spirit.


God’s Grace For Any Temptations

         In our society, same sex attraction is a very touchy subject these days between believers an nonbelievers alike. We are all born with a sinful nature, and what tempts one to sin in one way may vary from person to person to person. However, we must remind ourselves of 1 Corinthians 10:13 “13 No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.”

         There are many different types of sins and snares, but at the finale point we must ask ourselves, “Is Jesus Lord?” and we must also be willing to let him release us from every snare and pitfall known to man. I used to struggle myself with many of these temptations earlier on in life but praise God, I am proof that he can set a person free from any bond or chain that can hold a person back from truly serving him and loving him, whether drugs, alcohol, greed, sexual sin, and yes homosexuality. Paul addressed in his first letter to the church in Corinth a reminder that they were not who they used to be. He described a variety of pagan lifestyles that used to rule them, and then he reminded them of who they are after faith in Christ!

(1 Corinthians 6:9) Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

Indeed, Christ can make us new, no matter what your present struggles ar or past sins have been. Believe me, I have had quite the past, and even as a new soul, I am by no means a sinless man and have skeletons I wish I could bury and never look at again, but the good news is God can deal with your, our, and anyones guilt and shame if they turn in repentance to him and surrender themselves to his loving grace!
