We Have No Right? Part 1

Those who are pushing for gay rights and same-sex marriage want their message heard.  They are very vocal and sadly have many followers who openly support them.  It seems strange to me that they have the “right” to say what they want about their lifestyle, but cry “discrimination” when someone speaks out against them.  They believe they have the right to openly parade their homosexuality before us, but we have no right to express an opposing view.  Does this make sense to you?  It does not to me. 

Does anyone have the “right” to voice an opposing view on homosexuality and same-sex marriage? Yes!  Are we guilty of discrimination if we say one word against this issue?  No!

The God of the Bible is the ultimate authority in all things. Why then do we have so much confusion about moral issues like abortion, homosexuality, pre-marital sex, etc.?  The answer is really quite simple:  People do not know God! 

Pharaoh of Egypt stated, “I know not the Lord, neither will I let Israel go” (Exodus 5:2).  After the death of Joshua and his generation, “there arose another generation after them, which knew not the Lord” (Judges 2:10).  Job described the wicked men of his generation (which also describes so many today) who said unto God, “Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways” (Job. 21:14).  When Jesus came into the world, “the world knew him not: (John 1:10; 1 Jn. 3:1).  In Romans 1:21 Paul wrote of some that, “when they knew God, they glorified him not as God”.  Then he wrote, “they did not like to retain God in their knowledge” (Rom. 1:28). 

All of the above passages surely describe the attitude of far too many in our world today.  They simply do not care about God and what He says!
