'Your destruction will be terrible and final'


Ottumwa Courier

---- — A recent letter to the editor either states or strongly infers our nation has been brought back to God by the state and fedeal government and courts rulings legalizing, endorsing and subsidizing homosexuality. The letter writer states these actions plus the closing of an organization who apparently opposed homosexuality is repentance.

I read that repent means to turn away from sin and turn to God. I further read that God despises, hates and forbids homosexuality. I understand that God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns because of prevailing homosexuality and depravity such as women using goats for sex. The letter writer infers God has changed his heavenly court and laws and has acquiesced to mankind’s new morals and standards.

I am not, but if I were a prophet communicating God’s word to humans, I might say, “the Lord saith, as you ride the flying jackal, look behind yourself to see where you are headed in Sheol, for your heart is filled with love of sin so greatly, that sin’s roots have encased and permeated your bones destroying your ability to sustain yourself in an upright manner. You have chosen to live by your own very low standards rather than by the revealed will of God, and your destruction will be terrible and final.”

It has often been said, “God created man in his own image, and man has been returning the favor ever since.”
