President Obama: If God "Truly" Created Us Equal....

The President, in his Inaugural address, told America and the world that if God "truly" created us "equal," biblically condemned homosexual relations are morally equivalent to biblically affirmed heterosexual relations.

Twisting Scripture. Twisting Truth.

Some thoughts about what he said:

The President's carefully crafted words created pictures of pilgrims on a journey. Pilgrims making progress. A picture of secular progressivism and relative truth, wrapped in the original intent of our Founding Fathers and God's plan for mankind as revealed in His Word.

He spoke of a people and a country "without boundaries."

While it is true our pursuit of excellence and achievement is nearly limitless---the sky is the limit, it is equally true that morality has boundaries.

Freedom, as the Founders understood it, was freedom to do the morally right thing, not license to do anything and everything. And they made it abundantly clear their understanding of freedom and morality was based on biblical teaching.

Our country was founded on Judeo-Christian values and principles, not evolving moral "truth."

The President said, "Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like everyone else under the law, for if we are truly created equal, then surely their love and commitment to one another must be equal as well."

There is no question all people must be treated with equal dignity and respect. But should the most fundamental component of human culture, marriage and family, be redefined to conform to a sexual behavior in order to prove respect or tolerance?

In the context of his speech, his recent statements and his actions to move the homosexual agenda forward, this is the message:

If homosexual behavior is not elevated, affirmed and treated as normal, moral and equal to heterosexual relationships, then God didn't create us equal. Or. Those who oppose normalizing homosexual behavior and redefining marriage are taking a stand against God.

If you oppose redefining marriage, or "marriage equality" on the journey as the President's sees it, you oppose both God and the original intent of the Founding Fathers.

This is a deceptive message which twists the Truth. And it twists Scripture.

God's Word is abundantly clear on homosexual behavior. He loves the person and extends forgiveness and restoration to them, as He does to all of us, but not license to behave as we may be inclined to behave.

The President's narrative reminds me of an ancient conversation that also involved removing boundaries and relative, evolving truth. A journey without moral boundaries. Right and wrong.

"Has God indeed said, 'You shall not eat of every tree of the garden'?" he said.

She replied, "We can eat it all, except this one. If we eat of this fruit, we will die."

"Surely you won't die," he replied. Both of them knew God is love.

"No," he said, "God's Word doesn't mean that, you misunderstand. If you eat that fruit, you will actually 'be like God'---equal to God. And you will know good and evil" (Gen. 3).

When we reach equality with God, why would we need His Word to teach us the difference between good and evil? We then define it for our own journey.

Evolving truth. No moral restraint or boundaries.

Secular progressivism.



A journey without boundaries.

America is on the wrong path. We need spiritual restoration, so political restoration can begin.

May God help us to seek spiritual restoration and renewal through repentance and recommitment to His Truth.

That is the journey our Founding Fathers envisioned and God intended for every human being.

Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful. Be Discerning. Be Active. Be Blessed.
