The Rainbow Flag


Someone commented on a Facebook post related to the rainbow flag: “People offended by Gay Rights deserve to be offended, they are the kinds of Pharisees Jesus spoke against.”


Here was my reply:


What you fail to understand is that this is NOT about the right
to marry for tax purposes and other civil matters related to marriage. Some think it is about this, but it is not. If they were happy with just a civil union for tax and legal purposes, while I would still call it sin I would not be so strongly against it. They will not settle for that. They want marriage for their agenda.


This is merely a stepping stone in the gay agenda. The next step is to force churches to marry gays even when it is against our beliefs. Just saw a news article. The ink has hardly dried on the paper of the ruling, and some gays have already filed suit. And in states that already had gay marriage, there have been several such suits.


In conjunction with that, they will seek to muzzle Bible-believing Christians so that we cannot preach or teach against homosexuality. Some countries that are further along in the gay agenda have already put such laws on the books.


It is about infiltrating the church by force, those who would not be infiltrated by stealth such as those that now approve of homosexuality.


This is pictured in the story of Lot. Jesus said it will be like the days of Lot when He returns. What happened is that some angels came to Sodom to visit Lot. The town folk saw these handsome guys (as they thought them to be), and went over to Lot’s to try to get them to join with them in their homosexual orgies. Lot tried to dissuade them. They were having none of it, and tried to force their way into Lot’s home. Even when the angels struck them blind they kept coming. So the angels delivered Lot and his family from Sodom, and rained fire on Sodom that same day.


This is something of a prophetic picture. We know this, because Jesus told us that in a prophetic passage of His coming. Thus, the homosexuals forcing their way into the church is a major sign of the nearness of the coming of Christ.
But we are still called to spiritual battle, and we are still called to take a stand against the sin (along with all other sin).


The rainbow was a sign of remembrance of God’s wrath when He destroyed the earth because of sin. Among those sins are included pursuing strange flesh (homosexuality, beastiality, perhaps relations with fallen angels). It was also a sign of his promise not to destroy the earth with water again.


When the homosexual agenda took the rainbow as their symbol, they did it to mock God. They were slapping God in the face. God is offended, and will bring wrath in His time, if they do not repent. He will bring judgment on America in His time because much of America has approved of their agenda.


So, yes, I admit … I also AM OFFENDED at the rainbow flag. Any true believer should be.

    • Which is love? … to let someone continue on a path that will likely lead to spiritual death and the lake of fire, or to warn them and try to encourage them to repent and choose God? I don’t hate those with sexual identity disorders (aka, a sin nature drawn to unnatural sex). But it is a compulsive behavior disorder, and a sin, nonetheless. Some people are drawn to stealing (kleptomaniacs) – but that does not mean they should be allowed to steal. And I could go on about many different sins.

    I’m a happy lesbian teenager. Madam, why can’t other people be happy because of your religion? Why can’t girls like me fantasize about our wedding day like all the heterosexual girls can? It’s simply unfair because not everyone follows the same religion. Don’t mistake me for saying that your religion is wrong. Everyone should be entitled to their own beliefs but nobody has any right to discriminate against anyone else just because they are different. Blessed be.

    • Marriage has, since the beginning of creation, been a “religious” practice. And none of the major religions of the world traditionally approve of homosexuality. A couple of ancient religions had a place for it, such as Roman and Greek religions 2000 years ago, but none of the religions that have been prominent for multiplied centuries. And they did not practice marriage that I have heard of, only sexual relations.

      And if you read the article, you also know that the goal of most of the gay activists is NOT simply the right to a legal, secular marriage, but is ultimately about having their relationships approved of by religious people, and being able to force Christian bakers to bake them a wedding cake against their conscience, etc. If all they wanted was a secular union with equal SECULAR rights – with no restrictions against the religious to peacefully but openly hold by their beliefs, it might be different. But that is NOT what they want.

    Uhm. Hi.

    I just wanted to give you my view. I am a 16 year old female Christian and I strongly believe in God.
    When I was little I differed from the rest of my class. I always have. When I was 14 I finally pinpointed what that was. I like girls. I tried to date guys, I pushed the thought of it to the very back of my mind. I wasn’t gay, I couldn’t possibly be gay. I had this future planned out, I would have two kids with a man who treated me right. I dated a guy for a little less than a year. He even noticed there was something wrong. I would say and do stuff that wouldn’t normally be said by someone who is straight. One night he confronted me. He is now one of my best friends. Though it still took me a while to accept myself. I was the hardest person I had to come out to. I didn’t want to be gay. I didn’t want any of it. Cue suicide attempt 1. My mom talked to me about it after that and tried to help me. She really did, my mom is amazing. But I couldn’t be okay with it. I have laid awake for nights on end. There weeks that I ran on 2 hours of sleep and I was slowly destroying myself because of something I couldn’t change about myself. Slowly I warmed up to the idea, after another suicide attempt. I finally came to terms with myself, and my brother, who is also gay, took me to a gay bar, I mean it wasn’t really a “bar” it’s a place called rainbow house, and they do movie nights and stuff for lgbtq members and supporters. It was the best night of my life. I’m now happier than I’ve ever been. I dated a few girls, and I think I found the right one now. I was still a bit upset but then I built this self-confidence and selfworth and I was yeah I am gay, and if there is a heaven, but I can’t be myself up there then.. maybe I don’t want heaven. I speak for myself but also for every gay person I know that we have no plans to destroy faith, to ban churches or whatever. It depends on how you see it, I see the rainbow as extreme diversity in colors yet they still belong together, they’re one. They’re a group, together they make a rainbow. If you took the time to read all this thank you. I hope that one day we can live in peace with this. It’s almost 2017 after all. 😊

    • Sorry it took so long to approve and reply to your post. Been really busy for a while.

      I try to see things the way God sees them. Now we all have a sin nature, those things which we are drawn to that God calls sin. I say this so you understand there is no judgment on my part against specific sins.

      Here is the problem. Most people try to justify their own sin, in many cases deny it is even a sin. Often, their cry is “God made me this way, so it must be okay.” But where do we draw the line. The true pedophile has little or no interest in adults, but only young children – so, should we approve of them going after 2 year olds? Others are drawn to animals – should we let them? Then, some are not happy unless they are raping, so ….? Then there are the kleptomaniacs – should they be allowed to steal, since that is their desire? I could go on and name many different sins, things that you would probably agree are wrong – but the people who do them may not see them as wrong.

      So, where do we draw the line? Speaking as a Christian, we should let the Omnipotent Creator God, the one who everyone ultimately will answer to, draw that line. We are told to walk by faith, not by how we feel. Scripture says that His thoughts are higher than our thoughts, and His ways higher than our ways. We should seek to learn what He wants, not chase after what we want.

      The Bible refers to those who are eunuchs unto God, those who choose to abstain from sexual activity to honor God, rather than to burn in lust for others. Yes, it can be a hard life to live that way, but if your goal is to honor God, and to crucify the flesh nature with its lusts (as we are commanded in Romans), God will give you the power to do so. You can still “come to terms” with who you are in this case. I am not suggesting you deny that you are same-sex attracted. Some would counsel that you force yourself to be in a hetero relationship even though you have no real interest in it. That can be just as unhealthy, spiritually, as being in a homosexual relationship, or any other deviant relationship.

      The goal is not to merely abstain from sin, whether sexual or otherwise, but to choose to honor God with your body and your choices.

      btw, what does being 2017 have to do with anything. God’s truth is God’s truth regardless of what year it is. One of the great things about our God is that He does not change. What He told us is wrong 2000 years ago and more is still wrong today. We can know how we can honor God in our lives, how we can choose to obey Him to show our honor. It may sometimes be difficult because of our fleshly nature … Romans 6 and 7 rightly compare it to a war, a battle. But it is a battle that is worth fighting, and if we rely on Him, He will give us the power to overcome. We don’t have to do it in our own ability, but can do all these things through Christ who strengthens us.

    If you truly believe in God, why can’t you believe in love? God would want all of his children to get along and love each other irrevocably. There is no gay agenda. They just want to be as happy and as equal as everyone else.

    • I don’t merely believe in God, but in the God of the Bible. He makes it quite clear that to practice homosexuality is a sin – along with many other things that too many people accept as being okay. Because of sin, God must judge mankind. Because of sin, Jesus had to die on the cross to make a way for God to forgive us. But sin is STILL SIN, and even the true Believer will still be held accountable if they continue in sin.

      God is love, that is true. But God is also absolutely holy, absolutely just, and never changes. We humans tend to try to anthropomorphize God (that is, make Him like man). We feel something, perhaps an ungodly attraction to the same sex or a child or even to chase around the opposite sex, and we want to think that it is okay to act on that … that God made us that way. In truth, it was the sin nature that made us that way. And the same holds for anything that is sin, not just sexual sins.

      I harbor no hatred for homosexuals, have even had friends in the past with that sin. But it is still SIN.

      And yes, many of the leaders (and even followers) DO have an agenda … though they are often blind to the fact. They want the church to accept their lifestyle rather than stand for the righteousness of God. The homosexual may not have chosen to be same sex attracted, but they can choose to not act on it. The pedophile, likewise, did not choose their attraction, but with God’s help they can choose to deny that perversion. Same holds for kleptomania, gluttony, anger, hatred, etc, etc. God calls on all men, everywhere, to repent, to turn away from their sin and toward righteousness. This is true not only of the sexually immoral, but also of every other sinful inclination.

      And yes, the homosexual activists specifically chose the rainbow in defiance of God. One of the reasons God destroyed the earth in the flood is because of rampant sexual immorality and perversion (and also widespread violence and murder). And the rainbow is the symbol of God’s promise to not destroy the earth with a flood, again … But it is also a reminder to us that He is the Judge, and He did destroy the earth for immorality … and He is still the Judge. The ones who chose the rainbow flag to symbolize the homosexual cause knew this … that is why they chose it. Forget what they claim the colors symbolize; that is just window dressing to the truth. Jesus accused the Pharisees of being whitewashed sepulchers full of death, and that is exactly what the “meaning of the colors” is, whitewash hiding the death and rottenness within.

        If sinners must be held accountable, then why shouldn’t God, for all of the death and destruction of the innocent that he caused?

        • And how would you define “innocent?” The entire reason death exists in the world is because all mankind, by their nature, are sinners. This life is temporary, and He has provided the means of salvation for eternity to those who are willing to receive it. He also speaks the the conscience of those who do not have the law of God or the knowledge of Him. But the majority do not really listen.

          What do I mean by that. Romans says that there are those who do not have the law, but by nature do the things contained in the law, who are a law unto themselves. There are those who do not have God’s law, but obey it with a good conscience, who I believe God will save. But most people do not do this. Most people will lie when it is convenient, even though they know it is wrong and hate when they are lied to. Many, if not most, will engage in sexual immorality of some kind, knowing inside that they really shouldn’t. And so on. So in that sense, there really are not many who could be called “innocent” by God’s standards.

          Then there are the children, who are too young to know right from wrong simply because of their mental age … and likewise the mentally handicapped. If they die, I believe that they go to heaven because they are not mentally capable of really understanding – about as close to innocent as person can get.

          Further, all this “death and destruction” is part of God’s judgment on mankind. Because Adam and Eve sinned, death entered the world. and every living thing is now subject to eventual death. Whether “innocent” or evil, whether saved by Christ or unsaved, all are still subject to physical death as a by-product of the original sin. Whether it is death by the evil inclinations of some men, or death by natural disasters, it is all as a result of God’s judgment of sinful mankind.

          Perhaps you would argue that God could stop people from sinning and committing evil, if He wanted to, if He were really almighty, as we claim. And yes, He could. But He did not desire to create a bunch of robots who have no choice but to do as they were pre-programmed to do, to worship and do His will because they cannot do any other thing. He wanted a people who would CHOOSE to worship Him and trust and obey Him freely.

          Adam and Eve would never have sinned – it would never have even crossed their minds – except God gave them a single law, and put a serpent in the garden to test whether they would obey. They were created truly innocent and holy. They were perfect when they were created. They would never have eaten from the forbidden tree on their own initiative, because it would never occur to them. God placed the serpent in the Garden to put the possibility in their heads – but they could have chosen to obey God. But they didn’t.

          And because of that, they opened the door to all mankind having a tendency to at least sometimes disobey what they know is right and good, to disobey God.

          Our worship and obedience would be absolutely meaningless to God, if we had no genuine choice in the matter. We would simply be a bunch of robot servants, rather than persons. And THAT is why God allows evil to exist in the world for this present age, why there is “death and destruction” on every hand from evil men, from war, and from natural disaster.

        • God is absolutely holy and just. Our finite minds cannot really grasp the significance of this. When God created the universe and mankind, they were perfect, without sin. But they chose to disobey the ONE rule God had given them. Their choice led to having a mindset that they COULD disobey God, and then a tendency TO disobey God in some things. This created what we call the sin nature, or the flesh nature. There is nobody who is “innocent”.

    Good post.
    This country will be judged by fired as was Sodom and Gomorrah. There will not be a quenching of the fires of God’s judgement upon a country that has been given such Light as America.
    God’s people are to blame….we compromised for years and denied the truth. When there is a denial of truth….perversion becomes the norm.
    We are now a country steeped in perversion. Good is evil and evil is good. Men desire the lusts of there hearts and Romans 1 has been fulfilled in our day.
    God have mercy on us.
