CHRISTIAN LEADERS COLLECTIVELY STAND AGAINST GAY MARRIAGE
Excerpts taken from FoxNews.com
Prominent religious leaders throughout the nation united in a pledge to stand against a Supreme Court ruling, should the highest court in the nation uphold gay marriage.
Part of the document titled Pledge in Solidarity to Defend Marriage read,
“We respectfully warn the Supreme Court not to cross that line. We stand together in defense of marriage. Make no mistake about our resolve. While there are many things we can endure, redefining marriage is so fundamental to the natural order and common good that this is the line we must draw and one cannot and will not cross.”
Signees include Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, former US Senator Rick Stantorum, National Religious Broadcasters President Jerry Johnson, Pastor John Hagee and Franklin Graham, President and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan’s Purse.
The pledge was codrafted by Catholic Deacon Keith Fournier and Mat Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel. Others involved in formulating the pledge were Rick Scarborough, President of Vision America Action and James Dobson, founder of Family Talk Radio.
“We’re sending a warning to the Supreme Court and frankly any court that crosses the line on the issue of marriage,” Staver told Fox News investigative reporter and author Todd Starnes.
Rick Scarborough told Starnes that outrageous penalties are being assessed against people of faith simply because they refuse to participate in same sex marriages.
Oregon bakery owners are facing steep fines for refusing to make a cake for a lesbian wedding, which is strictly against their faith. Scarborough also referenced a Washington State florist who faces stiff fines for refusing to participate in a gay wedding.
Another Christian family has been fined for refusing to host a gay wedding at their farm.
Try forcing Muslims to facilitate Christian baptismals, or bake Christian cakes with something like the Bible, or a cross on it. Barack Hussein Obama would immediately be on the phone threatening someone in that event.
Jesus spoke of these signs preceding His return,
“Then shall they deliver you (Christians) up to be afflicted and shall kill you (happening in the Middle East now), and you shall be hated of all nations for My name’s sake” Matthew 24:9.
The Prophet Daniel wrote concerning the antichrist in the latter days,
“He shall speak great words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and think to change times and laws and they (Christians) shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time (three and a-half-years – during the last seven years of the great tribulation – Revelation 13:5)” Daniel 7:25.
Christian persecution will escalate, according to Bible prophecy. The spirit of antichrist is already at work in the world and he is truly, as we can see, wearing out the saints of God today.
Those who love the Lord with all of their hearts, minds, souls and strength will endure.
Not only has satan fledged his attack on our society as a whole, but his vile agenda has infiltrated public schools to the point that Planned Parenthood and Obama’s Common Core aim to teach your 10-year-old children exactly, step-by-step, how to perform sodomy on one another; and they label that atrocious and blatant child abuse “sex education” (http://rt.com/usa/206311-chicago-5thgraders-sex-ed-anal/).

Jesus said concerning the time of His return,
“Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot…even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of Man (Jesus) is revealed” Luke 17:28, 30.
What was going on in the “days of Lot?” Well, sodomy was so blatant in the City of Sodom (named after its prevalent sin) that God Himself abhorred it and He sent two angels down from heaven to rescue Lot, the nephew of Abraham, out of that city and then destroy it with fire and brimstone (Genesis 19).
The Word of God also tells us,
“The same day that Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all” Luke 17:29.
In like manner, as soon as the Lord catches up the saints of God from this evil and wicked generation (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18), He will pour out His fierce wrath upon it (Ephesians 5:6).
Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining will surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.
