The Public Persecution of Sen. Mark Green – Why Homosexual Sin is Different
Chalk one up for the Prince of Darkness.
Tennessee State Senator, Dr. Mark Green, quietly withdrew his name from consideration as Secretary of the Army, being recently nominated by President Trump. Dr. Green had received increasing scrutiny from the LGBT mafia, the democratic party, and even from his own party as he professed a (gasp) Christian stance on several issues such as gay marriage, the ongoing transgender controversy, and the odd notion that radical Muslims might just be dangerous.
Our LGBT masters unearthed audio from his 2016 appearance on the popular online radio program, “The Hotwash with CJ and Alex”, and spliced together some of his comments to make them say more than they did though in fairness, even the spliced together excerpts spoke much truth. Though not a surprising development, this confronts us with an uncomfortable truth. Homosexual sin is much different than any other.
Before the outcry becomes too great, allow me to make a stipulation. All sin condemns equally. James assures us that whoever keeps the entire law but fails in one aspect is guilty of failing it all. (James 2:10) If you lie, it is the same as if you broke the entire law. If you lust, it is the same as if you broke the entire law. You get the point.
Further, God stipulates the penalty for sin(singular), not sins(plural). “The wages of sin is death.” (Romans 6:23a) Spiritual death in the form of eternal separation apart from the Lord in a place called hell is the judgment for all who die in their sin apart from the atonement of Christ on the cross. In this regard, all sin is an equal affront before the Lord.
And I hold myself in no high regard, as I’m sure some will maintain. I find in myself a great sinner and were it not for the Lord Jesus, I’d have no hope at all.
Yet, in another respect, the Bible speaks to degrees of sin and degrees of punishment concerning hell and eternal separation from God. Some acts are worse than others and merit harsher punishment. (Numbers 35:9-29) As bad as Sodom was, her sentence will be less than Bethsaida’s because Sodom never knew Jesus. (Matthew 11:20-24) The sinner ignorant of Christ will still suffer in hell, but his suffering will be less than those who hear the Gospel each Sunday in church and yet deny Christ.
Sexual sin likewise merits special consideration. God set the sexual standard, in thought and deed, as godly and wholesome only in the context of marriage. The fact that I must necessarily stipulate marriage as between a man and a woman signifies the extent of our decadence.
One who sins sexually – including but not limited to fornication (sex outside marriage), lust, adultery, and yes, homosexuality – one who sins sexually sins against his own body. As the body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, sexual sin merits special consideration as it defiles God’s temple, the intended place of indwelling for the Holy Spirit. Homosexuality, as well as all other sexual sin, defiles the temple of the Holy Spirit.
Cultural considerations lend immense weight to the special nature of homosexual sin.
There is no other sin for which there is an aggressive and militant lobby group demanding not just capitulation, but advocacy.
This militant lobby cannot be appeased and you must advocate. You may not just acknowledge adopting a, “you do you and I’ll do me” attitude. You cannot just keep to yourself. You must advocate. You must celebrate. You must promote. That is the only acceptable end-state. Anything less than a full embrace of LGBT doctrine is met with swift and public condemnation by our LGBT overlords.
The public persecution of Dr. Green speaks to this.
What if a pro-adultery group blasted him for being a faithful husband?
What if a thievery group decried his appeal to honesty and integrity?
What if a group of blasphemers vehemently protested his wholesome speech?
Instead, a group of well-funded and highly-motivated LGBT militants suppressed a man who again, expressed views that until a few short years ago would’ve been declared mainstream.
Dr. Green even seemed to back off a bit stating his belief that everyone deserved the right to serve notwithstanding race, faith, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and of course, gender identity. It was too little too late. He had already revealed his true colors and for that he had to be silenced.
GLAAD CEO Sarah Kate Ellis called Dr. Green’s “change of heart” on LGBT issues a “step in the right direction” but stated his “anti-LGBTQ history still makes him unfit to be the next Army Secretary.” Now he must go quietly into that good night until we can find an appropriate person (gender neutral of course) to lead our Army as we transform with diversity, explore sexual fluidity, and accommodate all manner of deviation. Never mind closing with and destroying the enemy in battle.
Lest you think they’ll stop with Dr. Green, you must be blinded by naivete. You best clarify your own thoughts on the matter because at some point, all will be forced to pick a side. Your LGBT masters will one day come calling. Of this much I am sure.
This is why homosexual sin is much different than any other.
Our country lost today. Righteousness lost today. And we are a weaker nation because of it. I pray that the Lord would forgive our collective drift and one day heal our nation.
