A new Pentagon report came out yesterday. And it made the front page of the San Luis Obispo Tribune this morning. I was not going to comment on it until I saw the following headline at CBS News’ website:
Pentagon: Low Risk to Repeal of Ban on Gays
Tell that to the people of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Notice what happened there:
24 Then the Lord rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from the Lord out of the heavens. 25 So He overthrew those cities, all the plain, all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground. (Genesis 19:24-25, NKJV)
And why did it happen?
7 as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. (Jude 7)
Why mention this in the 21st century? Because God turned:
6…the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly (2 Peter 2:6,
Thus, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah were to serve as an example to those who would live as they did. Apparently those involved with the Pentagon’s report overlooked the risks that the Bible warns about.
Of course, if there is no God, no morality, and such things, do what you want. But since there is, there is a risk. A risk that the USA will regret later.
Perhaps I should mention that before "don't ask, don't tell", over here at Vandenberg Air Force Base many individuals were discharged when the military figured out that they were homosexual. Their forced removal did not appear to worse morale nor mission readiness. But for some reason (society ignoring God and the Bible), the Pentagon is changing its views.
The following passages in the Bible may provide some reasons why:
22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man — and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness...(Romans 1:22-29)
So the Bible says that if people do not want to retain God in their knowledge, homosexuality will be one of the "shameful" results.
Our blessed Mother through Father Gobbi of the Marion Movement…provided several messages…
On November 15, 1990: Mary spoke about the great trial coming to the United States and for all humanity. The Blessed Mother specifically mentions the United States will know the hour of weakness and of poverty as well as “the hour of suffering and defeat”. The thunder of God’s justice will have arrived:
…”…Sins of impurity have become ever more widespread, and immorality has spread like a sea which has submerged all things. Homosexuality, a sin of impurity which is against nature, has been justified…The moment of divine justice and of great mercy has now arrived. You will know the hour of weakness and poverty; the hour of suffering and defeat; the purifying hour of the great chastisement…” America will know poverty and defeat! Those are strong statements made by the Virgin herself. Never before have we known something like this on a national scale (Flynn, Ted and Maureen. The Thunder of Justice. MaxKol Communications, Inc. Sterling (VA), 1993pp. 341,342).
Although I do not believe that Jesus’ mother Mary actually said the above (see Mary, the Mother of Jesus and the Apparitions), perhaps I should add that the spirit world knows that the Bible condemns homosexuality, as well as the fact that the USA is prophesied to be destroyed.
The USA is in decline and its military will NOT be able to defend it well enough a few years from now. The USA will be taken over and defeated, and its people made slaves. Yes, it will get that bad (and actually even worse than that).
