How Should Christians Feel About Same-Sex Marriage?
June 28, 2015

UPDATE: The Obama administration has set up rainbow-colored lights to illuminate the real-life White House. (Twitter @whitehouse)Whitehouse celebrates SCOTUS ruling

 

Franklin Graham’s response on white house rainbow colors

The President had the White House lit up in rainbow colors to celebrate the Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage. This is outrageous—a real slap in the face to the millions of Americans who do not support same-sex marriage and whose voice is being ignored. God is the one who gave the rainbow, and it was associated with His judgment. God sent a flood to wipe out the entire world because mankind had become so wicked and violent. One man, Noah, was found righteous and escaped God’s judgment with his family. The rainbow was a sign to Noah that God would not use the flood again to judge the world. But one day God is going to judge sin—all sin. Only those who are found righteous will be able to escape His judgment. That righteousness comes through faith, believing on the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ who took our sins and shed His blood on the cross for each and every one. So, when we see the gay pride rainbow splashed on business advertisements and many people’s Facebook pages, may it remind all of us of God’s judgment to come. Are you ready? Are your sins forgiven?

Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

He whom the son of Man sets free is free indeed.

Freedom from sin and death — that is real Liberty.

Sandra Crosnoe said: “The state cannot make something right or wrong — that is a function of the Creator. The state can however make your life miserable for not doing what it wants you to do in certain blocks of time. That is the function of power. How long does the state’s power last? Well now we are back to the Creator’s determination. When He says ‘game over’ that will be the end of that. Who is really in control? That would be the Creator. Seek Him while you may…”

Spiritual Renewal and Rest in Him

Labor to enter into rest
          Wash yourself in the water of the Word
                   Renew your body, soul, and spirit in Him
Today as I took time to rest and ponder spiritual matters,  I once again became intensely aware of the need to take time out of our busy schedules and rest in Him.  Some really wonderful sites of potential refreshing are now links on this site.
Over the years I have been blessed to sit under the personal ministry of Derek Prince.  He opened the Word to me in a way that has been a blessing throughout my life.  He has gone to be with the Lord now, but his teaching is continuing to multiplying across the nations and through time to multiple generations.  If you fall in love with the Lord and the Word begins to unfold to you in a new way through his teaching you will be blessed indeed.
We have in our midst in Bartlesville a pastor who loves the Lord and His people and this community.  Rod MacIlvane shares almost every week at Grace Community Church with great wisdom and compassion and practical insight.  We are in Romans now and the sermons are podcast and available to all on a weekly basis.  Visit in person or listen in when your schedule permits.
Recently, I have found a fascinating teacher in Chuck Missler.  He offers a delightful mix of the revelation of scripture and science and creation testifying to the validity of the Word of God.   As a seeker of Truth through the years, I take great pleasure in sharing these wonderful sources of inspiration in my life with you.
There is one more that I must mention, but am not able to share with you yet. My Dad, Ted Crosnoe, was a terrific Bible teacher as many of you know.  I am working on putting some of his teachings online so you can listen anytime you wish.  I completed the project of converting cassettes to CDs  and shared them with some of you already.  The next step will be to podcast them for all to have available! Coming soon . . .
