The best thing that could happen would be for Jesus Christ to return and wipe away all of the sin and blasphemy that goes on in this world. The second best thing that could happen would be for these false churches to just stop calling themselves churches and let the visible people of God shrink in size but grow in purity.
People are sinners—and Jesus died to rescue sinners. But he doesn’t just rescue sinners and save us from Hell, He saves us from our sin, our rebellion, and our hatred toward God. Continuing to practice what God hates is a sure sign that one has not been rescued by Christ, regenerated by the Holy Spirit, or been given a new heart of flesh to replace a heart of stone. And while we always hold out hope that those who are lost will be saved, the longer one blasphemes God the narrower that window of opportunity appears to become.
Yet, with God, anything is possible.
That being said, God will not be mocked and those who call themselves Christians and organizations that masquerade as churches while practicing and promoting homosexuality, abortion, and every other abominable sin that God hates are going to have a hard time on that day when they say to Jesus, “Lord Lord.” Those dreaded words that follow will be harsh. But that’s where we are today—there are more false churches, it seems, that are practicing homosexuality than there are true churches worshiping the living God.
Following another article this morning on the Roman Catholic Church’s capitulation to homosexuality and “gay pride” month, another Baptist church in Pottstown, PA is holding a ribbon-cutting celebration for a new LGBTQ center that is being opened within the church. According to FBC Pottstown’s website, the church will now be home to the LGBTQ Center of Greater Reading, PA, and “will begin by offering counseling, a youth group and an older adult group, all things identified by Pottstown folks as needs they experienced.”
Littered all over the LGBTQ Center of Greater Reading’s website are images of adults and children partaking in this abomination.
“The LGBT Center of Greater Reading,” the website reads, “creates, administers, and provides services, advocacy, and support to the Greater Reading LGBTQ+ community, including our allies, with the goal that all may live a life of fulfillment, inclusion, and celebration.”
You certainly have a political right to practice your rebellion against God, but please don’t do it in the name of Christ—your punishment will be far greater.
“Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.” —Galatians 6:7
