For Ladies: Pressured To Accept

Clista Heintzman

We are bombarded everyday by the gay community, the media, and the President of the United States to accept homosexuality as good and right. The gay community belittles anyone who would speak against homosexuality and looks for ways to punish the life of anyone who would disagree with the gay lifestyle.

Our freedom of speech is slowly being taken away. The idea held by many in authority is that one may speak whatever he wants as long as it does not interfere or disagree with what they or the masses believe. This idea is being passed to our children through the school system as well. A Christian mother must show her children how to love others and speak truth, even when truth is not what others want to hear. 

God, in His word, teaches that we should love our brother, our neighbor, and our enemy. He did not teach that we should love and accept everything our brother, our neighbor, or our enemy chooses to do. Moreover, He did not teach that we should be silent when we see things amiss. In Acts 4, Peter and John were told by leaders not to speak about Jesus. In verses 19-20 Peter and John said, “Judge for yourselves whether it is right in God’s sight to obey you rather than God. We cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.” What do we hear from God’s word on the subject of homosexuality? 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 says, “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals ... will inherit the kingdom of God.”

President Obama was recently videoed speaking to homosexual children. In the video he tells them they have done nothing wrong and that they were born the way they are. These words are preposterous and false! God would be unjust if he created children to be homosexuals and then refused to allow those who are homosexuals to enter heaven! God is not unjust. “Let God be true and every man a liar ...” (Romans 3:4)

We must speak for truth. Contrary to what the gay community or our President says, speaking out against homosexuality and refusing to be tolerant and accepting of it is not bullying. Be alert. Do not allow media and leaders to “push” false ideas. Remind your children to think and reason for themselves. Teach them not to make fun of, harass, or harm those who are homosexuals. However, encourage them to speak God’s word on the matter and to stand for their convictions. -3049 Tyler Highway, Sistersville, WV 26181.
