Do we listen to the President or God?

By: Carol Clemans

This week President Obama spoke on television that he believes that homosexual couples should be allowed to be married with all the rights that a husband and wife receive through marriage (not exact quote). The President was forced to face this issue because Vice Pres. Biden stated his support on the same issue earlier in the week. The President said he was ‘evolving’ in his decision about this situation. No, he did this for political reasons.

It’s on record that the President had previously said because of his Christian belief that marriage was sacred between a man and a woman. I’m so thankful that I serve a God that changes not. God has moral laws that will never change no matter what any man says about them. God does not categorize sins – all sin is sin in God’s sight. Revelation 21:8 NLT states, “But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars—their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

We will all stand in judgment according to God’s Word, not the President’s personal belief. Galatians 5:19 – 21 NLT states, “When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear; sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.” Sexual immorality includes adultery, fornication, pornography, homosexuality, sexual abuse, sex trafficking, prostitution, etc. God’s laws are for our protection and provision. America is built on laws. There is a law we must pay taxes. If we don’t, we are extremely penalized. There are traffic laws. There are consequences to breaking these laws. If you decide to run red lights because you feel you have the right, then you will have an accident, you may be killed and you may murder someone in the process.

If all Christians in America would vote for godly moral laws and politicians, we could turn this nation around. I refuse to keep silent in a world that is wanting to flaunt their sinful causes in my face and then say because I’m a believer in godly morals that I’m prejudice or homophobic.

God came to this world in a ‘robe of flesh’ (God manifest in the flesh) and showed how much He loves the sinner by dying on a cross to shed His blood that we could be redeemed/restored in our relationship with Him. He loves the sinner but hates the sin. Our words will either justify or condemn us when we stand before God. I’m sorry for you Mr. President; you evolved in making an opinion about marriage for homosexuals that God calls an abomination. Your words will ‘justify’ even to children that hear ‘The President’ declare a sinful act is OK to make choices that will dictate their eternity.

Mr. President, God puts up and He takes down. You will not escape the judgment of God even though you are President. Everyone will stand before his or her Creator, Almighty God. All sexual immorality, lying, gossiping, sowing discord, murder (abortions), hatred, cheating, abusive anger, all abuse, backbiting, plotting deceitfulness, dictators, manipulators for evil – ALL is sin declared by God.

God is Love. He is full of mercy and grace to those who humble themselves before Him. But sin will not enter into heaven. It’s our words and actions on this earth that dictate our eternity. Just because we declare we are ‘Christian’, if our heart and actions do not manifest the same, we are in trouble with God. Mr. President, beware. You will stand before God. None of us will escape the final judgment of God. As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord!
