    Tody in my town we had a parade that is tradition every year. It is a family event and local holiday going back many years, I've been in the parade a few times when I was a kid and it has been a very fun time for children. This time, however, a local group calling themselves "the Coalition for equity, diversity, and equality" or some kind of ridiculousness entered a float in the parade with two grown men in drag and several small children on board with them. Their (I'm assuming) parents were with them marching along. This is absolutely debauched, and appalling to see happen in my small community.
    The treatment of children in this country is abhorrent people fight for the right to butcher them in their wombs, and now they are fighting for the right to sexualize them.

    I don't want to post the pictures on here, but if anyone wants to see the sad state of our town I'm providing the link to the FB page McPherson Coalition for Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity - MCEID

    I would like to hear your thoughts.

    The sad thing is that we are a town of 13,000 (approx) and have 42 churches here in town - and I can probably count on one hand how many are actually gospel-preaching churches. It's rather embarrassing to see how bold sinners are in standing up for their shameful lusts and how frequently we cower in fear of man and fail to evangelize (and I include myself in that).

    Litteral holy terror awaits those unrepentant adults at the great white throne judgement. It will be bad enough for anyone who appears there, but for adults who have the trust of children and encourage them in that condemned life style, it will be unspeakable horror.

    Genesis 6:5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

    Romans 3:9-18 What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; as it is written,

    There is none righteous, no, not one:
    There is none that understandeth,
    There is none that seeketh after God.
    They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable;
    There is none that doeth good, no, not one.
    Their throat is an open sepulchre;
    With their tongues they have used deceit;
    The poison of asps is under their lips:
    Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:
    Their feet are swift to shed blood:
    Destruction and misery are in their ways:
    And the way of peace have they not known:
    There is no fear of God before their eyes.

    yea, I understand…. Towns in New Jersey are going through the same. Look I just sent this song of deliverance I really like from Zach Williams at a prison. Zach’s back story is that he was heavy into drugs himself for 8-10 years before he was born again. Now he does concerts in prisons because by the Grace of God, he could have been an inmate.

    This should help the fear we all have.

    Are these people in the float Christians? If not, then you cannot expect that they see their actions as being wrong. Perhaps get to know them and tell them of Jesus and his desire to reconcile with them if they will but believe.
    If they don't want that, then pray God opens their hearts.
    We live in a world that is in rebellion against our King. God calls us to be ambassadors of reconciliation. Let's fulfill our jobs.

    I have noticed many in these groups are claiming God approves of there behavior. Pete Buttigeg, Secretary of Transportation, explicitly claims God approves of his marriage to his husband.

    How do you witness to someone who claims God approves of their behavior and if you don’t like it, your problem is with God?

    peace you

    If they will listen, you show people how Israel created their own version of God and how it turned out for Israel. (i.e. how Jereboam replaces the temple in Jerusalem with his own worship places as well as picking his own priests).
    People who love their sin rather than hate their sin are people you pray for and ask God to make them miserable in their sin.

    They know what scripture says and have convinced themselves it’s not applicable to them.

    Praying for them to be miserable in their sin may be the best option. Dialog is certainly a waste of time.

    peace to you

    But they don’t listen… they reject any efforts to throw out the life rafts. Only God thru His Grace can make the adjustments

    This song lyric woke me up… it is a Christmas song where the author despairs… except he remembers God and his mighty power…..

    Then rang the bells more loud and deep
    God is not dead, nor doth He sleep
    (Peace on Earth)
    (Peace on Earth)
    The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
    With peace on Earth, good will to men
