Wining Back the Culture

July 15, 2015

My article “A Simple Plan for Winning Back the Culture After the Same-Sex Marriage Decision: Envisioning a positive future after the Obergefell case,” was published on line by Aleteia, July 14, 2015

http://www.aleteia.org/en/society/article/a-simple-plan-for-winning-back-the-culture-after-the-same-sex-marriage-decision-5856075790155776

The following is a brief summary of the five initiatives that I think could make a difference. I hope my readers will download the entire piece, send their comments, share with me what they are already doing, and consider how they could support some of these initiatives.

——————————————————————————-

Now that the Supreme Court has ruled in Obergefell v. Hodges that no state may deny a marriage license to two members of the same sex, those who have been fighting in defense of natural marriage are asking, “Where do we go from here?”

I offer some suggestions:

1. First, it is necessary to confront the Sexual Revolutionaries and their promotion of Utilitarian ethics…
2. Freedom of religion and freedom of speech must be defended…
3. Prayer, fasting, repentance, and reparation. Individually and in our churches, we need to pray for people with same-sex attraction (SSA) and gender identity disorder (GID), for their children, and their parents….
4. Support groups. In spite of the fact that gay activists insist that they don’t need therapy, we must be there for those who want help…
5. We need to know and speak the truth about SSA and GID…

    Thank you for your article.
    I would add that husbands and wives must strategize in their own homes how they will combat the culture in their own family. If we do so then the world we see the truth in the goodness and beauty that family exudes with very little effort. My husband and I take our children out regularly to public events and restaraunts. We also travel with our 4 young children around the country and abroad. Not only are people in awe that we take our children everywhere we go but they are awed by our family’s love and affection for one another and the joy our family exudes. While traveling through Iberia, we were asked over and over why we were there. After a short sweet explanation we were then thanked over and over again for being an example of the real beauty of family.
    Interesting too that just before we departed a dear friend wrote me and requested, “please continue to make your family a beautiful prayer”.
    So let us add, families must make themselves s beautiful prayer and be the perfect example of all that is good, true and beautiful!

    SORRY, YOU NOR ANY OTHER RESISTANT GROUP WILL WIN BACK THIS CULTURE. IT IS ALREADY DOOMED TO INCUR THE JUDGMENT OF GOD. DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND ROMANS CHAPTER 1&2 AND THE HISTORY OF PAST INFAMOUS CULTURES AND CIVILIZATIONS WHO TOOK THE SAME PATH AS THIS NATION IS TAKING. NATIONS ARE JUDGED BY GOD AND INDIVIDUALS, INCLUDING CHRISTIANS, ARE EVEN CAUGHT UP IN THAT JUDGEMENT. IF GOD DOESN’T JUDGE AMERICA HE WOULD HAVE TO APOLOGIZE TO SODOM AND GOMORRAH AND GOD DOES NOT APOLOGIZE. JUST SPEAK THE WORD OF GOD TO THEM AND PRAY THAT GOD BY HIS HOLY SPIRIT WILL LEAD INDIVIDUALS TO REPENTANCE. GENUINE REPENTANCE FOR THEIR SEXUAL SIN IS THE ONLY THING THAT CAN TRULY SAVE THEM. THE ONLY THING THAT YOU CAN DO IS TO PRAY THAT GOD SOMEWAY, SOMEHOW WILL SHOW THEM THE GRACE AND MERCY TO TURN TO HIM SO THAT HE COULD HEAL THEM. THE LORD COULD DO FOR THEM IN A MOMENT OF TIME WHAT THE GREATEST THERAPIST COULD NEVER DO AND THAT IS TO TRANSFORM THEIR HEART AND MIND.
    LOVE THEM, GIVE THEM THE GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST AND PRAY DILIGENTLY FOR THEM, BUT GOD WILL HAVE TO DO THE REST BECAUSE WE ARE ALREADY MUCH TO LATE; THE NIGHT IS WELL SPENT; AND WE ARE IN THE FINAL PHASE OF THE REJECTION OF THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN SAVE US!!!

      You don’t have to shout. Roman 2 reminds us that repentance begins with us. Have e prayed for those suffering from these temptations? Have we loved them?

    I was wondering if you would mind explaining how the acknowledgement of same-sex “marriage” infringes upon our freedom to practice our religion and freedom to speak our minds. Also, if you wouldn’t mind, add a bit to explain how the government maintaining a straight-marriage definition does not go against the separation of church and state. I’m interested in understanding your perspective a bit better.
