Addendum: How Did we Get to the Point of Thinking Homosexuality is Acceptable?

I just posted “At What Cost to Freedom is Legalized Gay Marriage?”, which is an article that explains how this new freedom puts us under more bondage as a nation, not less. I now want to explain a bit more about the United States got to the point of accepted homosexuality as “normal” versus calling it an “abomination.”


Yahveh Gave the People Up to their Own Sins

Homeosexuality instead fulfills the Scripture in Romans 1:28 where it says Yahveh has turned the people over to a reprobate mind.


Yahvah Gave them Up to a Reprobate Mind -- What does that Mean for the People?



In Romans 1:28, Yahveh is saying, “Alright, people. Do as you please, as in the days of Noah. Let's see how that works out for you!” 


Also, in the same verse, it says that the people committing homosexual abominations and indulging in all forms of lust did not “retain their knowledge” of Yahveh. For this reason, Yahveh turned them over to their uncleanness as described in Romans 1:18-31.


However it is also “Because that, when they knew [Yah], they glorified him not as [Yahveh], neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools (Romans 1:21-22)” 

In the verse to follow (Romans 1:23), this lead to replacing their incorruptible Yahveh with a less-powerful, homosexual “image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things.”

The People Left Their First Love and Replaced it With a False God

They left their first love (Yahveh) turned away from the faith, as well as forsook the wisdom, knowledge and guidance of the one and only true Yahveh.

As a result, they became people filled with the following forces of evil (Romans 1:29):



But the Gift of Yahveh is Eternal Life When We Repent! Amen!

The good news is, Mark 3:28-29 says that any sin we commit other than the blasphemy of the Ruach Ha’Qodesh (Holy Spirit) is forgivable. 

“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of [Yahveh] is eternal life in [the Messiah Yahshua] our [Master].” (Romans 6:23 KJV with Hebrew sacred names added)

So, talk to Yahveh now. Get on your knees and tell Him your sorry. Tell him you need Yahshua to be your Savior, King and follow him. Confess specifically to Yahveh what sins you want to repent of, and read your Bible and pray daily.

If you learn how to do spiritual warfare, that will also keep you out of sin. Contact me here if you need prayer or anything else. You also can find me on Facebook or Google + if you want to get a hold of me right away.

How Does "The Freedom to Sin” Take away the People’s Control?

About 61% of Americans now support gay marriage. They celebrated this Satanic “victory” at the end of LGBT Pride Month as an increase in freedom... 

(See Also: "What Will the Government Want in Return for Legalizing Gay Marriage?")

But “they the people” do not realize how blind they are!

The government falsely promises its people greater liberty, and the majority of rulers seduce the people with profane blasphemies. We’re now even allowed the right to marry someone of the same sex in addition to cohabiting before marriage, killing unborn babies, and placing adult content on public television.

“For speaking out arrogant words of vanity they entice by fleshly desires, by sensuality, those who barely escape from the ones who live in error and they are the servants of corruption; for by what a man is overcome by, this will be what also enslaved him and therefore brings him into bondage.” (2 Peter 2:18-19).”


A majority of people serving in the churches and government today are the “servants of corruption” as mentioned in the above scripture. A large number of these Satanic agents are also homosexuals living in sin. However, as it says in Ecclesiastes 1:9, there’s “nothing new under the sun,” and “that which has been is that which will be, And that which has been done is that which will be done.”

The “nothing new” mentioned in Ecclesiastes includes approving of homosexual acts and homosexual marriage. It’s not just the government, though. The fake and false churches of this world are also pandering to the gay population just like they did in the 1st Century. 

As expected, legalizing gay marriage is paving the way for allowing polyamorous/polygamous marriages and incest. All these are abominations according to scripture, but Satan’s children continue to plant their seeds of lies. The biggest lie of all is that we should be allowed to do whatever we want and live however we want. As a result, sins we used to think were "disgusting" are now acceptable.

How Does "The Freedom to Sin” Take away the People’s Control?

Every bit of sin committed by church elders and government rulers leads us closer to selling our country out to Satan. Abominations are also promoted on national grounds and in worship houses, and the effect trickles down onto every American household.  

As we remove all good out of the churches, the Constitution and our homes; we blindly replace it with a blasphemous church and a corrupt government. We might still have “In God We Trust” on some of our dollar bills, but we’re operating on Satan’s principles instead of Yahveh’s principles. 

In America, we are slowly handing ourselves to Ba’al (Lucifer, Satan, Babylon) and greater confusion. In the process, we think we’re at greater liberty. However, we’re instead putting ourselves under increased bondage and opening ourselves up to possible death (Romans 6:23a).

The Consequences of Sin can be Deadly, but there’s Still a Way Out!

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of [Yahveh’s] mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to [Yahveh] your true and proper worship (”Romans 12:1).

So, go ahead and ask Yahveh to forgive you for any sin you no longer want to commit. When you do, confess those sins specifically to him. Then, seek Yahshua the Messiah’s help as you follow Him along the right path.

Religion, Just another Word for Politics -- the Gay Marriage Ruling Aftermath

I didn't write much concerning the Gay Marriage ruling this past week that occured within the Supreme Court. I figured I didn't have to. Everyone else is already.

I have, however, gotten into quite a few heated discussions about this topic as well as religion on Facebook.

Fighting about religion is just as futile as is having a public urination contest to see which one of us can whiz the furthest. It might be fun, but what good does it really do? Is anyone really going to ever change their  minds about what they believe?

Maybe some will, but I know I'm not going to.

It’s embarrassing now that I think about it. How could I ever stoop to that level -- arguing about religion? I'd rather get caught peeing in public than ever bother with that ever again.

What Good Exactly is Religion? 


Religion is man’s poor attempt to justify or condemn his own or someone else’s actions. I want no part  of that kind of system anymore. It’s easier said than done, but that’s what I want – not to identify as belonging to any formal religion. Besides, all religion is, it is another word for “politics.”

Does that mean we should abandon our faith? 


No, I don’t think so. I believe what I believe, and like most people, I will not easily change my mind about it. Why should I? In spite of everything, it’s the one thing that’s kept me sane at least most of the time.

It doesn’t mean my faith was never challenged. There’s been many times when I thought about no longer believing what I believe. Then, something would always somehow bring me back to it – usually adverse circumstances.

More about my Faith and Relationship History with Yahveh


I had a bad habit of drifting from my faith when things are going well. It is usually at that time when I would take what I believe for granted and not practice that faith as much as I should.

Sometimes, the return to my faith might be met with anger. I’d lash out at the one I believe in as if it’s Yahveh’s fault I grew distant.

Then, I’d humble myself if only for a few minutes to recognize I can’t do it on my own. At that point, I am reunited with The One I believe in.

I purposely wrote this post without any mention of the one I do believe in and I purposely decided to not quote any Bible verses in writing this.

Why? Just because.

Except to say, “EHYEH ASHER EHYEH!”

“I AM THAT I AM” (or “I AM WHAT I WILL BE”)


That’s what Yah says to the Israelites through Mose after appearing to him in the burning bush.

“I AM is my name forever,” says Yahveh, “and this is my memorial to all generations,” says Yahveh.

This is referring to Yahveh, the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob

“I AM has sent me to you,” Yahveh says to Moses.

Reference for all of above: Exodus 3:1-16.
