Have you ever heard the idiom ‘etched in stone” or ‘cast in stone’?

The meaning of the idiom speaks to something that is definite and fixed.  Both expressions allude to the work in sculpture, with the first, from the early 1500s, using the verb cast in the sense of pouring and hardening some material into a final form, and the second cutting or corroding a permanent design. Hence something that is ‘etched in stone’ is permanent and cannot be changed.

 

In this ever changing day we are living in, it seems NOTHING is ‘etched in stone’. The morals of a society that have endured for nearly 237 years is no longer profitable. As this same morally eroding society seeks to satisfy the lust of the flesh, the dictates of one’s mind is subject to the same whimsical spirit.

I have listed some evidence of this spirit.

 

Article posted, Wed- 22 Aug.2012 on the Christian Institute ‘Boris Johnson backs redefining marriage’.

 

The article states the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson has recorded a video for a homosexual marriage campaign group saying he supports a redefinition of the institution.

In previous years Boris Johnson has warned of potential negative impacts of same-sex marriage and criticized the promotion of homosexuality in schools.

In 2001, Mr. Johnson wrote that “if gay marriage was OK – and I was uncertain on the issue – then I saw no reason in principle why a union should not be consecrated between three men, as well as two men, or indeed three men and a dog”.[1]


Some years back Mayor Johnson had some pretty strong convictions about what constituted marriage as well as the negative impacts of homosexuality upon a society, but has since recanted his stand, and now endorses the idea that marriage needs to be “redefined”.

The second article was posted on The Prison Planet entitled ‘Canadian Medical Association Redefines Human Life’ The Canadian Medical Association, the largest association of doctors in Canada, has redefined human life. On August 15, as reported by LifeNews, delegates to the CMA’s general council voted to pass “a resolution supporting the current wording of the Criminal Code which states that a child ‘becomes a human being within the meaning of this Act when it has completely proceeded, in a living state, from the body of its mother.’ ” The CMA resolution is intended to support the nation’s criminal code, which defines an infant as a human being only after the infant is born.

Canadian Physicians for Life decried the action, calling it shameful and unethical. Dr. Will Johnston, president of that organization, said that “every Canadian doctor knows that the unborn child is a live human being…. CMA delegates worry about children not exercising enough or not wearing bicycle helmets, while over one hundred thousand children go missing from our playgrounds every year because they were killed by abortion.” [2]


If God has possessed our reins and covered us in our mother’s womb and set us apart for His own purpose, it must be the inhabitant of the womb IS a human being.

It never ceases to amaze me how ignorant an educated society can be!

The next is an email from the Christian Anti Defamation Commission I received on March 21, 2013. It seems the ‘delusional spirit is alive and well in the States. The article is testimony of a prominent conservative Republican leader and controversial pastor who have both come out in support of homosexual marriage. Both men used the teachings of Christ as a reason to affirm these “marriages.”

Senator Rob Portman from Ohio released a statement announcing his changed view on homosexual “marriage” after learning that his son was living a homosexual lifestyle. In it, he claims the shift was in part because of his faith and what he reads in the Bible.

"I wrestled with how to reconcile my Christian faith with my desire for [my son] to have the same opportunities to pursue happiness and fulfillment as his brother and sister," he continued. "Ultimately, it came down to the Bible’s overarching themes of love and compassion and my belief that we are all children of God …We conservatives believe in personal liberty and minimal government interference in people’s lives. We also consider the family unit to be the fundamental building block of society. We should encourage people to make long-term commitments to each other and build families, so as to foster strong, stable communities and promote personal responsibility."

 

In another announcement, Pastor Rob Bell, founder and former pastor of Mars Hill Bible Church located in Grandville, Michigan, stated that he supports homosexual marriage. “I am for marriage. I am for fidelity. I am for love, whether it’s a man and woman, a woman and a woman, a man and a man.” [3]


In a March 2013 Christian Post interview with Rob Bell, the former mega church pastor said at Vanderbilt University that he doesn’t believe God is some far away notion that people in the real world need to always be reaching out to, but that the whole world is filled with God’s presence.

"God is with us. God is for us. God is ahead of us," the author said.

During his speech, Bell shared of AA meetings he attended as a young pastor that greatly affected him.

"While he is not an alcoholic, he said that in those meetings he was able to stop pretending that he had life figured out. Instead he could simply accept that God cared for him with all his flaws,". [4]

The third principle of the Alcoholic Anonymous 12-Step program is that one (the alcoholic) must step out in faith. It is only a matter of being willing to believe. Through the process of the 12 steps, AA states that belief turns into faith. We carry this faith into the rest of the steps by being willing to believe. We must begin to have faith it will work.

So what does AA say the alcoholic must believe in? The alcoholic must make a decision to turn his/her will and lives over to the care of God as they understand Him.

This is a very dangerous principle. God is not a lump of clay that an individual can flop on a potters wheel and fashion Him into whatever we want Him to be. A thought process whereby we can make God whatever our mind desires to conjure up, no matter what good we think may come from it, is not the work of the Spirit of Truth.

Consider the events following God’s deliverance of the nation Israel from Egypt. Moses was on Mount Horeb for 40 days receiving the words of God. The people had become discouraged and requested that Aaron would make them a god, which would go before them. Exodus 32

Aaron took of their golden earrings and melted them down and fashioned a molten calf of gold, to which they bowed down and worshipped and said “these be thy gods, O Israel which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt”. One’s mind does not make God what we want Him to be, He is what He is and He is the same yesterday, today and forever, and cannot change.

While Bell was speaking at the Grace Cathedral in San Francisco about his new book ‘What We Talk About When We Talk About God’, he made this comment…

“I would say that the powerful, revolutionary thing about Jesus’ message is that he says, ‘What do you do with the people that aren’t like you? What do you do with the other? What do you do with the person that’s hardest to love?’” he replied. “That’s the measure of a good religion, is you can love the people who are just like you; that’s kind of easy. So what Jesus does is takes the question and talks about fruit. He’s interested in what you actually produce. And that’s a different discussion. How do we love the people in the world that are least like us?”

‘ever wonder why we are seeing the demise of California?’

‘And Tango Makes Three’ book about homosexual male penguins who name their chick Tango because ‘It takes two to make a Tango.’

‘mandatory ‘gay’ day for K-5 students’– World Net Daily

A California school district has approved a mandatory homosexual curriculum for children as young as 5 – and parents will not be allowed to remove their children from the lessons.

The mandatory program, officially titled “LGBT Lesson #9,” was approved May 26 by the Alameda County Board of Education by a vote of 3-2. Students from kindergarten through fifth grade will learn about “tolerance” for the homosexual lifestyle beginning next year.

The curriculum is in addition to the school’s current anti-bullying program and is estimated to cost $8,000 for curriculum and training. …

 

But Capitol Resource Institute’s Karen England explored the curriculum and released a statement condemning the program before the board’s vote.

“This curriculum ignores the fact that every child has a mom and a dad, to redefine ideas like ‘family.’ School absolutely should be a safe place, but this isn’t just about safety. Students have to embrace highly controversial social values or risk being labeled as bigots,” she warned. “Five year old kids aren’t ready to think on their own about sexuality – and their families’ values will be dismissed. That’s not an education in critical thinking. It’s social activism.”

 

Our society attaches the the ascription ‘gay’ to such a vile sin. God calls it sodomy…associated with the vile lifestyle of one of the cities that met utter destruction for giving itself over to fornication and going after strange flesh.

Now if you were gong to teach a child about homosexuality, which story would you engage, the one of these cute penguins and Tango or the truth of Sodom and Gomorrah?

The irony of this whole story that has been propagated to condone this egregious life-style of sin makes the statement…

 “it takes two to make a Tango”.

Two of the same sex cannot make a Tango, only a society can place one into their hands. This thought process is diametrically opposed to the whole plan of God when it comes to marriage and the family…

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. Genesis 1:27 & 28

One does not have to be a seminary graduate to understand that two of the same sex cannot be fruitful multiply and replenish the earth… they cannot make a Tango. This indoctrination of children at this innocent and susceptible age is nothing more than a societies open fist rebellion against a God and Creator that has laid out an entirely different plan.

Imagine the dilemma, the child goes to school learns of this homosexual life-style, then they come home and the parents tell them that this is not right in the eyes of God. Who is the child to believe, the school, the parents or God and His word? Such opportunity for confusion when a society finds itself in rebellion to the clear teaching of God’s word.

‘some things never change’

                           Marc Chagall, Les Fiancees de la Tour Eiffel

The above painting is from renowned painter Marc Chagall. Les Fiancees de la Tour Eiffel- ‘The Bride of the Eiffel Tower’ was painted around 1900. I wonder in today’s confusion concerning marriage what Chagall’s ‘bride’ would look like?

One of the nation’s most prominent dictionary companies has resolved the argument over whether the term “marriage” should apply to same-sex duos or be reserved for the institution that has held families together for millennia: by simply writing a new definition.


The dictionary’s new definition of marriage

The new definition references “marriage” as the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife. But the definition also includes “the state of being united to a person of the same sex in a relationship like that of a traditional marriage.”

Since the beginning of time, there has always been one that does any and everything to thwart the Truth of Gods word. Suppression of Light and the propagation of darkness if you please. That same spirit is alive and well today.

We are living in a day when nothing escapes the scrutiny of ‘political correctness’. For those who long for a foundation of truth, it is good to know that there is one thing that will never change.

The Word of God is the same yesterday, today and forever.

And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed. Genesis 2:21-25

If the Lord tarries man shall most assuredly rewrite the Word of God to make it more palatable to his/her view of their own god….

And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman and a man, and brought both him and her unto the man and said now choose which one caters to the desires of your flesh. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: they shall be called my spouse, because it is written in Webster’s Dictionary. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his lover: and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his lover, and were not ashamed, until the Lord returns. Genesis 2:21-25 modified by the religious baser sort.

Rest assured my friend, the Word of God will not change. I pray that pulpits will not change it for the tickling of itching ears.
