Not Surprised

I can’t impress this on you too strongly. God is looking over your shoulder. Christ himself is the Judge, with the final say on everyone, living and dead. He is about to break into the open with his rule, so proclaim the Message with intensity; keep on your watch. Challenge, warn, and urge your people. Don’t ever quit. Just keep it simple. You’re going to find that there will be times when people will have no stomach for solid teaching, but will fill up on spiritual junk food—catchy opinions that tickle their fancy. They’ll turn their backs on truth and chase mirages. But you—keep your eye on what you’re doing; accept the hard times along with the good; keep the Message alive; do a thorough job as God’s servant. 2 Timothy 4:2-5 The Message

The leader of the Scottish Conservatives, Ruth Davidson, was given the dubious honour of being ‘Politician of the Year’ by Stonewall, the champion of Homosexual rights. The same group gave Cardinal Keith O’Brien the ‘Bigot of the Year’ award for expressing his opinion against the redefinition of marriage.

So we have an immoral group who are not only out of the closet, but who have locked the door behind them, a politician who leads a group of people not trusted by the ordinary voter, but not just a politician, a leader of a political party, and then someone who expresses a different point of view from the other two. Let’s not pretend that ‘Stonewall’ is a reasonable, balanced and equality based group. The events of the past few days have nailed that lie. The only person who is given bad press, is the one who dares to stand against the tide of political opinion, and to make it even worse, he is the leader of a church. Horror of horrors, that only makes matters worse.

I don’t know about you, but this gives me a problem, because Stonewall have all the major political parties in their pockets. Perhaps not in the same way that all party leaders are homosexual, but they do support the immoral agenda of something the Bible says is clearly and unambiguously a sin (no matter how opponents view it).  How should I vote? Should I abstain as a protest? Does it really matter? Scotland has a major vote in 2014 when it goes to the polls to decide on independence. The SNP by that time will have passed a law to redefine marriage in favour of homosexual and Stonewall wishes. Then a year later the UK will go to the polling booths to decide their leadership for the following five years. All of the main political parties have already agreed that the redefinition of marriage will be completed within their term.

Make no mistake, the moral landscape of our once Bible believing nation will change dramatically, and only time will tell how quickly our nation will fall completely. It is not a matter of ‘if’ but ‘when’. You are free to dismiss my opinion, but I will take my stand alongside Cardinal O’Brien, who I have very little else in common with, but whom I admire for at least standing up and being counted, unlike some other church leaders who are happy to keep their heads down in case they are seen to offend. The Stonewall campaign asks for tolerance, acceptance, and freedom to express their views. It seems this only applies to them, and no one else, but then we were warned about attitudes like this by Jesus who is the truth, in these words: “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. John 8:44 NIV

This Blog was a bit of trouble for me to set down, but today’s Bible verse says it best, and puts God’s absolute sovereignty into the picture. This verse is for me, and I needed the reminder of these words from the apostle Paul, who was under the authority of Rome, and had no vote to cast either: Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Romans 13:1
