Making of US What They Are
Now, there are various campaigns set against Chick-fil-A calling for boycotts in an effort to pressure them to conform with the demoralized social standards of this day.
Even supposed "Christians" are rushing forward to profess their love & acceptance for the homosexual lifestyle in order to avoid the fray. Many of the same are stating that they too will join in the boycotts against Dan Cathy's (Chick-fil-A's President) stand for God's word.
But you know what? Chickens don't eat chicken anyway!
"Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them." Romans 1:32
What does the above Scripture text really say? God indicates here that we can know certain truths about those who support sexually perverse lifestyles. They "do" the same acts as those in sexual sin and "have pleasure" in those who do them.
So let's set one thing straight (no pun intended). According to God's word - there are no Christians standing in support of homosexuality. When you see self-professing Christians in support of such things, you can know without a doubt that they are not what they claim. Rather, they are in fact one and the same as the sexually perverse. Such are not "Christians" trying to show love. They are in fact sodomites hiding behind a veneer of Christianity. They "know the judgment" God has pronounced against those who do such things; yet, they not only do the same abominations, but take pleasure in others who do. When you see someone standing up for their "homosexual friends" and supporting "homosexual rights", you are looking at a sodomite who still needs to be born again - even if they call themselves a "Christian".
I could provide an endless listing of companies who openly, publicly, and proudly endorse gay rights. However, there are very few who will openly, publicly, and humbly stand behind God's words. So, what is the big deal if Chick-fil-A chooses to stand with God when there is a plethora of companies who stand against God's words? The world is aiming to make of us what they are: sodomites.
"But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? Bring them out unto us, that we may know them.
And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him, And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly. Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof. And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door." Genesis 19:4-9
When the angels of the Lord came to visit Lot and redeem him from this damned city, the men of Sodom surrounded Lot's home and pressed into it to reach them. Their objective? They wanted to "know" the angels who had come to visit. This is the same word used to describe a man being joined to his wife to become one flesh.
Some claim that the people of Sodom were just upset that Lot wasn't being hospitable and introducing the visitors to the city. Yet Lot's response makes quite clear what these men wanted; he calls their request "wicked" and offers instead to give them his virgin daughters. The men of Sodom wanted to rape the visiting angels so that they could make of them (the angels) what they (the men of Sodom) were. The nature of these Sodomites was so aggressive and violent, that they almost broke down the door of Lot's home to get to them.
While many assume that the people of Sodom just thought these visitors were men, they could have very well perceived that these were messengers from God. It was then very important for them to put out the light of God in those messengers so that their own degradation would not be exposed. This is exactly what people are trying to do to Chick-fil-A...and what many will try to do with you if you let them.
either by open profession or silent compliance) or they will come against you with a fierceness. You sure cannot come in bringing the light of God's word in the midst of their darkness or you become a target for attack.
Are you prepared to stand for God's word when the attacks come or will you too be chicken? Know this, if you cannot call sin "sin", no matter what it is - lying, stealing, or even homosexuality - it is because you are still alive to sin (Romans 6:2, 11). I am not speaking of being sinless here, but about not being in covenant or agreement with sin. You will never stand against what you are until you are ready to be freed from it. This is so much larger than Chick-fil-A. I am speaking of your own personal testimony for Christ. Do you have one or are you too busy trying to be accepted by the world (John 7:7, 15:9, 17:14; Galatians 1:10; James 4:4; I John 2:15-16)?
Mike Huckabee has declared August 1st to be Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day and encouraged patrons to stop by and support the business on that day. Others in the homosexual community have asked their supporters to go into Chick-fil-A to celebrate what it calls National Same Sex Kiss Day with public displays of perversion. Hey, I say, this should make our job much easier! Since so many homosexuals may be visiting Chick-fil-A on that day, Christians should go and bathe those places in prayer, being ready to cast out that homosexual demon to set many captives free. And while you are at it, feel free to wander up to the counter and order a Chick-fil-A sandwich, some waffle fries, and a large lemonade. :-)
