Scripture’s Sexual Ethic will Outlast Progressive Ideals

Scripture’s Sexual Ethic will Outlast Progressive Ideals February 7, 2018

In terms of progressive ideals, what we see is not a new or improved culture, but rather, an anti-culture. As a whole, the presuppositions of the movement are grounded upon that which is anti, or against, traditional, biblical norms. In this, the appeal to affirming sexuality as a fluid construct is wholly dependent upon one’s personal desires and completely dismisses the ideals set beforehand. It is anti-history, anti-religious, and more clearly, anti-Christian.

What makes this noteworthy is that the positive claims to moral relativism are not epistemologically rooted; they are squarely placed upon subjective grounds. This ultimately provides the fodder for its own undoing – as the criteria for progress is set within a victim narrative. If you rank higher within this caste system, you have the necessary currency to set the barometer determining truth. If you do not rank high within the caste system, but play the cards well enough to validate the victim class, you too will have currency to exchange.

The point I am driving toward here is that the locus of truth itself is bound within the framework of personal experience and feelings, and empathy to said experiences and feelings. Thus, moral truth is likewise bound within this framework whilst those deemed unfit are excluded from the table. This plays in heavily with the debate over sexual ethics in the modern age simply because the determinate for the morality of same-sex attraction, transgenderism, and sexual identity is bound within the constituents.

In other words – most converts to these progressive sexual ideals are not won on the grounds of intellectual rigor. To be sure, that is often the feigned argument, but in reality, it is an eclectic assortment of things appealing to the emotions. This is especially true of Progressive Christians, as there is absolutely no evidence of biblical, historical, or traditional fidelity found in their argument.

Rather than deal with the text at hand, the best example of “exegesis” one finds on the progressive sexual ethic is a plain denial of the text. There is no positive assertion being made, a victim-class is levied, and emotions are elicited rather than an appeal to the text. The reason for this is simple: there is, unequivocally, no biblical case for affirming the progressive sexual ethic.

A Personal Example

Self-dubbed Progressive Christians have long abandoned an understanding of God’s supreme holiness and justice, which plays out in virtually every sphere of ethics within their reach. Be it the church affirming homosexuality, the gay clergy blessing abortion clinics, or any other variation wherein they call evil “good” and good “evil” – it is set upon a foundation denying Scripture’s clear teaching on these things.

When someone comes along to say the historic church has unanimously agreed such teachings are clear, another rises up to sufficiently muddy the waters by appealing to a sort of pseudo-intellectualism. If you read this delightful little piece, you will see it is textbook Bulverism coupled with an appeal to authority. More clearly, it is a person touting his own credentials whilst simultaneously defaming the person he argues against, which happens to be me in this case, in order to discredit the whole argument.

I bring this up for the simple reason that I earnestly believe Progressives deal with such disagreements in terms of volume rather than logic. The man simply couldn’t resist in running a smear campaign – all because he was duty-bound, but duty-bound to what? Ultimately, I sense the duty he felt bound to was, in essence, seeking to shame me in front of as many people as his sphere of influence would allow.

Now, this is no new thing in the days of globalization; this is precisely how others have lost their jobs due to inappropriate tweets. Yet it remains important because the goal in this case wasn’t to defend one’s academic discipline (academics rarely resort to such gimmicks). It was the desire to lobby a mob, complete with pitchforks and torches, to decry the village idiot. Only a backwoods-inbred would think in such terms – and he was sure to make this point several times.

Slippery Slope, Meet the Ball Rolling Downhill

In many recent cases, progressive ideals are driven by the need to censor conservative voices on the issues of human sexuality and reproduction. One of the most familiar tactics in this is that unless you’ve attained status as a victim, you do not have the currency to enter into the discussion. Yet secondarily, it often involves another highly subjective aspect of personal experience: it doesn’t affect you, therefore, shut up. Progressive is a rather ironic moniker then, given the movement itself will invariably go down in infamy for being more totalitarian-driven than anything.

You don’t think human sexuality being up for negotiation is a good thing to be celebrated? Keep your mouth shut and toe the line; you aren’t affected by it at all. Well, except when you’re the CEO of a large company, a fire chief, or when your spouse decides they would be suited a member of the opposite sex. Interestingly, it seems even having the audacity to say people should be confronted by contrary views within the university setting is enough to be subjugated to a lengthy tribunal.

Perhaps you believe abortion is fundamentally wicked and children have a right to live? Again, keep your mouth shut and toe the line; you don’t have the plumbing to make a statement like that. If there is a means where someone actually does agree that abortion is a problem, the solution lay in keeping abortion legal and teaching comprehensive sexual education. Right. So, are we speaking toward the comprehensive sex-ed. that encourages young girls to practice sodomy, how cuckolding can be beneficial for some couples, or just that incest can be portrayed in a positive light?

While it is certainly not a monolithic movement, as no movement is, the more interesting conundrum is found within those claiming Christ. For those professing Christians who affirm a progressive sexual ethic, they too are not actually making a positive case, but a negative one. The interesting point in this is that the line of acceptability is ever-shifting. The base of this argument? Place truth within the victim-class, appeal to emotion, jettison those particular “clobber-verses” to their historical context, and villainize the traditional crowd by highlighting their non-victimhood.

These are literally the cases conservative institutions were making against a liberal sexual and procreative ethic less than ten years previously. While not every prediction has come to fruition, there is little evidence to the contrary to suggest the concerns were entirely invalid, as many a progressive insisted then and still does now. There is, however, a growing acceptance of the “fringe” deviancies that progressives swore would never come to be.

Progressive Ideals are Already Dead

Despite the continued onslaught against Christian ideals in the realm of sexuality and procreation – the progressive movement will go belly up. It will flop for the same reason every movement counter to Christianity has flopped beforehand; Christ is Victor and His truth reigns supreme. Truth itself testifies against the lie on a continual basis, shedding light upon the contradictory nature of logic bound within such a set of ideals.

While we might be tempted to look upon anecdotal evidence, there is evidence enough within the Scriptures to demonstrate the nature of what is to come. There is perhaps no better place to go in this discussion than Romans 1:16 and following. It is incredibly interesting that for Paul, being unashamed of the gospel of Christ is what sets up his discussion on the wrath of God being revealed.

The gospel is the power of God for salvation to all those who believe, and it reveals the righteousness of God. Out of this focus, the wrath of God is now presently being revealed against the godlessness and wickedness of men, who suppress the truth by these same qualities. This goes hand in hand with what I was saying above; submitting to the truth is not the desire here, but rather, the thing they wish to conquer and subjugate.

Yet God has made His character and being readily apparent to all mankind so that they are without excuse. Rather than acknowledge God, embrace the truth, and give Him the thanks He is due, their hearts and minds became things of futility. To the one who has access to proper teaching, they are bound in even greater folly, for they are in greater measure, without excuse.

The greater indictment is that man exchanged the immortal God for the mortal things of this earth and because of this, they were given over to a depraved mind. In this depraved state, they not only know such things are worthy of death according to God’s decree, but actively sanction others doing such things. In other words, though progressivism is built around the notion of love – the love shown is no love at all.


The key here for us to see is that God’s wrath is very real, and the demonstration of that wrath is in the revelation of mankind’s debauchery. These agendas, though often moving at an alarming pace, only hasten to remind us that the Lord’s judgment is upon this world and His final judgment is drawing near. The more power, influence, and “progress” made – the more God’s wrath is being made self-evident upon the earth so that all men are without excuse. Deny as they might, all men are worshippers, and all men will be judged for the object of their affections.

People are often embarrassed over the wrath of God, yet the Scriptures paint this picture without any qualms. God is a vengeful God and His retribution will be fierce for the unrepentant. The book of Revelation describes eschatological judgment taking place on an epic scale – wherein millions of people die at the blink of an eye. God will “tread the winepress of His wrath so that the blood reaches the horse’s bridle (reigns)”.

Thus, the reason I say progressive ideals are already dead and that the biblical sexual ethic will outlast them is simple and clear. They will not be a part of the new heavens and the new earth. Yet even on a more immediate timetable, they are not really in power today. Surely, such tools are used to blind the eyes of unbelievers, yet the powers and principalities behind them have already been defeated at the cross. These enemies of the gospel shall undoubtedly continue to pull many people away (and willingly so), yet Christ continues to pull His own out of the thick of it, for His purposes and glory.

All we must do is continue to be a light in the darkness, preaching the fullness of the gospel. That is, we must preach the wrath of God as well as the salvation of God through Christ crucified. We must preach the fullness of sin, yet the fullness of the Savior who removes the stain of sin. We must likewise preach the penalty for sin, which is death, yet also the reward of the faithful, which is the resurrection from the dead. In all of this, we must emphatically preach Christ and His truth as it applies to all spheres of life – for there is not one thing in all of existence over which He has not declared jurisdiction.

    What infantile gibberish

    • Gilsongraybert

      Always a pleasure, Pud.

      • pud

        Preaching the wrath of an invisible un-detectable deity…blood….death….human sacrifice…all because a Bronze Age book written by unknown religious psychopaths eh? Because he loves you? You people are SICK! You have forsaken your critical faculties (if you ever had any) and adopted the most mindless, easily disproven, collection of infantile hogswallop and nonsense ever dreamed up by delusional stupid men. Do you make your wretched living infecting children with this apocalyptic death cult of yours?

      • pud

        Why didn’t you detail the “scriptural ethics” properly? Your idiotic book condones rape, the oppression of women, abortion via magic potions administered by priests, slavery, the selling of women, the slaughter of innocents, human and animal sacrifice, genocide, genital mutilation etc etc etc….How is it that wicked propagandists like yourselves can cherry pick from your grotesque cult manual and ignore the express “word of god” that endorses, promotes and perpetrates the most vile human abuses? Well? Speak up!

          You and pud are the same person using different sign-in names, and you speak no truth.

  • smithflight

    You say: “The point I am driving toward here is that the locus of truth itself is bound within the framework of personal experience and feelings, and empathy to said experiences and feelings” I counter this idea by the reality of the antebellum slavery debates . They were framed by logic, reason and the Biblical text. They also dragged for so long time while people suffered. In reality it was the fictional story “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” which made the greater difference in changing people lives and progressing past slavery. The book made real the personal experiences and feelings, and empathy of both slaves and non-slaves and ultimately contributed to the passing of the 13th Amendment. Also, it was the personal experiences and feelings, and empathy that ultimately won women the right to vote.

    • George

      Uncle Tom’s Cabin – which I’m re-reading right now – was nowhere nearly as influential as you presume. The tide of public opinion toward slavery had turned before that book was written.

      • smithflight

        I think I too will re-read the book. Hard to underestimate how popular the book was at the time. Published nine years before the war. In the first year it sold over 300000 copies. It was the best selling book, behind the Bible, of the 19th century. Apparently there was a great desire of many folks to empathize with those caught in slavery.

        • George

          I honestly believe that Abe Lincoln’s immortal words to HBS turned the book into more than it was. The tide of public opinion, both for and against slavery, had galvanized by that time. It was only a matter of time until something ignited the kindling.

          I’m having a hard time reading the book. It’s painful. It’s heartbreaking to see how people can so flippantly dehumanize and abuse others.

  • Tianzhu

    Aside from the moral issues, the sexual revolution has been devastating from the standpoint of physical health. The rates of STDs – some of them incurable – are horrifying. Nature has always had some built-in penalties for promiscuity.

    • Myles

      Don’t let your ignorance be disturbed by facts.

    • Lark62

      Do you really think STDs poofed onto existence in the 20th century?

      STDs have been around for millennia, including the era when biblical heroes had multiple wives and sex slaves.

    • Jason Evans

      You need to be at least somewhat honest. Conservative Christians, and especially the Christian Right, are not bothered by STD’s and care nothing for the vast majority of people. In fact your behavior grants extensive evidence that you are some of the most unloving human beings there are. Rarely do others work so intensely as a group to spread human ruin as you do. Some of the greatest hope in the 80’s and 90’s was held by Conservative Christians in the United States that the AIDS crisis would murder every last homosexual in the nation. In addition, they could have cared less about AIDS spreading in its place of origin in Africa amongst heterosexuals. This is seen in how your policies remove condoms from public health initiatives, increasing HIV transmission.

      It is kind of like your fake hatred of abortion. You scream at the Left, and then do everything possible to increase unintended pregnancies, which account for 50% of abortions. Your focus on reducing contraception use is one of the initiatives connected with this. You don’t care about the unborn beyond using it as a political football to create single-issue voters.

      The true reality over your mourning for the Sexual Revolution is selfish. It marked the true destination of Western Civilization’s promise of peaceful pluralistic societies with people living together with varying understandings of families and relationships. And as a result, you just started to scream. Conservative Christian cultural hegemony was coming to an end, so you identified various ideas and pariah groups such as gays, upon which to circle your intense hatreds to shore up your communities. And now you do nothing but target them and scream and vomit about your cultural dilution.

      The constant babbling I see in various conservative pages about the “sexual revolution” is merely whining that you don’t rule anymore and cannot strictly and impose your very narrow social norms on the population. For instance, the only family you wanted was one that conformed to your doctrines. So now, instead of supporting families, you scream at gays in married faithful relationships and do whatever is humanly possible to sabotage their lives and families. You would rather they be out there catching STD’s than be in stable relationships. You want them dead.

      If you actually believed in Jesus Christ, you would work to help people. For those who did not support your religion, you would work to create a society where they thrive. In my example, those are gays in stable monogamous relationships. Instead you do whatever is possible to ensure that is difficult or impossible. For instance, we know you horrible human beings fully intend to rescind marriage equality the minute a vacancy opens upon the Supreme Court during this administration.

      We know that the primary objective of your faith is to spread human ruin and suffering. Your desire to gut the families of those people you hate and think that God has given you instruction to single out for persecution is incredibly intense and consuming.

      You are apostates, criminals in the eyes of God, and your religion is false and a source of immeasurable satanic and human evil. But that is your problem. As for us, we just have to live in peace with you. Live your lives as you wish, but stop trying to use the power to the law and the state to ruin everyone else’s lives, including the lives of gays.

    • Tiny J

      Uh…no? STD rates have plummeted in the last 30 years.

  • Myles

    Deciding that your immoral scam has given you the right to decide who can love whom and also give you control over how people are born is sick and immoral.
    We are lucky that your phoney god and your fake religion are heading to the mythology scrap heap to join the millions of other gods and religions allready there.

            I find pushing evil stupidity to destroy humanity sickening, even for leeches.

      • Myles

        Lying for Jesus really makes you look stupid. The worst part is the fake statistics you pulled from your arse.
        Christianity benefits from people like you. Better to shut up and drink your blood than show how immoral and dishonest your death-cult actually is.

  • Alan Drake

    Solo scriptura has had a good 500 year run, but it is clearly fading away in Europe with the USA a generation or so behind.

    Solo scriptura was not part of Christianity for the first 1,500 years and will likely not be part of our future either.

    “The point I am driving toward here is that the locus of truth itself is bound within the framework of personal experience and feelings, and empathy to said experiences and feelings.”

    But of course; this is how it is, and how it should be. “The life of the law has not been logic; it has been experience.” Law is made for people, not people for law. If not ground in experience and empathy, Christianity shall be nothing but an instrument of oppression.

    • Richard Worden Wilson

      Experience of God in Christ and empathy for those who don’t know him are the best and most potent guide to true liberation. For those oppressed by their own self-deception good is evil and evil good.

  • Dominick Issi

    I’m appalled that garbage like this is allowed to be published in this web site. Arguments, such as these, are oppressive and so outdated they have no excuse for being published. Diatribe such as this are EXACTLY why today’s Evangelical movement is driving seekers and searchers away from today’s churches in DROVES! Grayson … you should be cut-off from this site and banished from whichever druid cult from which you’ve crawled!

    • Richard Worden Wilson

      If scriptural tradition, Jesus’ and his apostles’ teaching is garbage for you then it is not surprising you don’t get it. As for teaching such as this driving people away from churches you may be mistaken–evangelical churches are thriving while progressive ones are languishing or withering. I know I’m wasting my “breath” with this response, since you end with a non-sense assault on the author’s character and heritage. Oh, well….

      • Easymoney

        Ah so … Richard. You’ve throw in the idea that YOU have a corner on “Scriptural Tradition” and I’ve no clue of Jesus’ teaching. Good try of obfuscation … but it’s apparent you believe you hold the “Holy Grail” and we’re all supposed to follow you over your cliff. If you can’t follow this “bouncing-ball” of logic … we DON’T have any more to discuss.

    • Tiny J

      Did you do that on purpose?

  • Donalbain

    Of course they will. Your descendants will just disagree with you about what is scriptural.

  • Martha Anne Underwood

    What is the obsession with sex among Evangelicals over sex? I’m one of those progesive Christians who believe the “clobber texts” you use to say being gay, lesbian or transgender is unatural and sinful have nothing to do with being gay, lesbian or transgender being sinful. Evangelicals seem to focus on sin rather than the love of Christ. For you Christ came to condemn us and tell us what not to do

    Being gay, lesbian or transgender is not a choice. It is the way you are born. It’s like eye color. If your eye color is considered sinful, no amount of praying will turn them to the unsinful eye color. You can cover them up with tinted contacts but underneath they are the color you were born with.

    • Richard Worden Wilson

      IF your argument is valid then promiscuity, adultery, incest, and (I won’t go on with the nearly infinite list of other sexual proclivities) are also “not a choice” and therefore can’t be sinful. Come on, reread the article and think.

      • Cheryl Lyle

        Please read my comment above, it will really help if you read the book as well.

    Christ is Victor
    History would say otherwise:

  • Maine_Skeptic

    While it’s true there are verses that demonize homosexuality, there are MORE verses in which Jehovah orders genocide and institutionalized rape. That doesn’t bother you any more than does the deranged behavior of the 45th president, who most of you treat like a hero. What credibility do you think you people have to be outraged that gay people are closer to equal protection under the law?

  • rtgmath

    “Bulverism is a logical fallacy. The method of Bulverism is to “assume that your opponent is wrong, and explain his error.” The Bulverist assumes a speaker’s argument is invalid or false and then explains why the speaker came to make that mistake, attacking the speaker or the speaker’s motive.”

    Accusation, meet Gilbert Grayson. Pot, meet kettle.

    The whole article, other than being a pot full of intellectualized gobbledygook, is full of the hatred and scorn the author wishes to heap upon the LGBT community and those who support them as being fully human and worthy of respect.

    Yes, Grayson, new knowledge doesn’t come out of “epistemological roots.” It comes out of experience, out of study, out of learning from old errors and trying new things. That is why you have a computer to work on and spew your ignorance instead of scratching around on birch bark with charcoal. New knowledge. And no, it doesn’t lead to a downfall.

  • Jason Evans

    Gilbert, I invite you to prayerfully consider that Christ is NOT in what you have written. The God you portray in your writings is not the God of Jesus Christ, but is mere idolatry to certain verses in your Bible at the expense of the whole. Your religion has taken verses about law and punishment and magnified them above the rest of the words and ministry of Jesus Christ, resulting in a God who is nothing like the Father Christ points us to. It is a distortion, and it is falsehood. And thus as it misrepresents who God is, it is grievous and mortal sin.

    As one of the Christian Right, you engage in their project to corrupt conservative Christianity with a false gospel. You endeavor to replace the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the Culture War. This article you have written is part of that project. Part of what you have written is in response to the newfound confidence on the part of progressive Christianity to call out what the Christian Right does as being punishable sin. Their work to label the Christian Right as immoral and criminal before God, creates a feeling of the need to defend against their accusations. This is where you reduce it to some kind of tennis match where God is on your side and that your moral norms are of God and will have victory.

    First, let us be reminded that victory is Christ’s, and not ours. Second, let us outline what exactly is wrong.

    The Christian Right is not Christianity. It is a political movement and group which has discarded the gospel as a means to obtaining political power at nearly any cost. It is the turning of Conservative Christianity into merely the Republican Party. You elected a man that endangers this nation in exchange for the gifts of power he promised you to allow you to destroy your enemies. As such, the Christian Right has achieved the pinnacle of political power, and are prepared to destroy your enemies with force.

    The Culture War consists of the following basic items, though there are many more:
    1. The unbiblical gathering together of a group of your fellow sinners that you deem require special persecution. These are your religion’s PARIAHS, and for the past fifty years, they have been GAY people. You single them out NOT because God told you to, but because by generating hatred towards them and harming them, you generate powerful cohesion for your religion and you motivate them to vote the Christian Right into power for the purpose of destroying these pariahs. In doing this, you make into garbage Jesus’ rejection of legalistic religion. And you directly disobey His commands and go after those you have made into outcasts. Jesus was quite clear as to what your future is going to be.

    2. Your faction falsely opposes abortion. While screaming that the Left is aborting babies, you have done NOTHING but INCREASE abortions. Your faction has done everything humanly possible to stop, cancel, block, or ban any and all attempts to reduce unintended pregnancies, which is the primary driver of abortions. You do this in restricting access to contraception, removing it from health insurance, stopping family planning, removing prenatal health care, and in countless other direct and indirect ways. Fifty percent of all abortions result from unintended pregnancies. And so, just under 500,000 deaths annually are the preventable result of your long history of working to increase unintended pregnancies. And so, while the regular conservative Christian on the ground strives to end abortion, those of you in leadership are false and work policies to increase it for your political gain.

    The fetus is your political football. Those in leadership care nothing for the unborn except as a tool is create single-issue voters to get them into power. The truth is that your religion wants nothing more than childbirth. I don’t know why except that you see it as a solution to the other fear you instill in people: the fear of white cultural dilution. And after a child is born, whether it gets health care, lives in poverty, or is shot to death. is of little concern to your leaders. These leaders are going to burn in the fires of hell forever for this.

    3. You wish to remove or perilously weaken the separation between Church and State in order to return your religion to cultural hegemony. You do not truly believe in pluralism and wish to re-exert your rule over others, shoving your religion down their throats through force of law. Your code language for this is when you call the United States a “Christian Nation”, which is a deliberate distortion of our history and the Constitution. Since gays achieved mere access to the civil marriage contract, your truly evil leaders have done nothing but spin lies that this is somehow oppressing you and interfering with your own practice of your own religion. It does not. And you know that. Again, this constant screaming is nothing but a group of people threatening and making it quite clear that you will not live in peace with your neighbors. It is despicable.

    4. You support a distortion of basic gun rights, and have created around it an ideological package of reactionary rejection of any and all attempts to make such rights anything but absolute without any restriction or control, no matter what. The purpose of this is to generate ideologically driven single-issue voters. Again, it is political. And, as a result, the nation has become flooded with firearms such that there are more guns now in civilian circulation that there are people. As such, crimes that in other nations are merely violent, acquire here the ability to easily balloon to mass casualties. Our schools and the continuous murder of our children are just one manifestation of this.

    There is much more in your political arsenal, but we will leave it there for now. Next, I shall discuss that horror you intend for this nation.

    Now, as your faction sits poised for the next vacancy on the Supreme Court, it is highly likely you will be able to achieve your plans within the next seven years as Trump will appoint one of your fellow right-wing Christian extremists to the bench. There is much the Christian Right has stated it has planned. It must bring you great joy to know the misery you are poised to inflict. At least two of your faction’s intentions are as follows:
    1. You fully intend to do everything possible to increase childbirth, and you are going to do it at the expense of the lives of women WITHOUT significantly impacting abortions. You are going to remove a woman’s right to abort her pregnancy pre-viability. You also fully intend to further restrict contraception to the point of eventually removing that right under the excuse that almost all contraception is abortion. Don’t lie, we know and watch the narratives your people make and spin about this. And as a result, abortions will not discontinue significantly, but move back into the alleyways and into massive use of abortive drugs. You will begin imprisoning women, and they will die in droves. And each death will bring joy to your heart.

    2. You intend to remove equal access to the law for gay people, and as stated by your leaders, you will do it in several stages. You intend reverse the federal marriage ruling. Then you intent to ban it at the federal level. You then intend to reverse the ruling that banned criminalization of gay relationships. Then you will recriminalize homosexuality, possibly at the federal level. Your intention is not only to dissolve marriage, but to destroy families. You intent to direct the state to take the children away from them. Your final objective is to imprison them. You will then be able to declare victory over the destruction and ruin of the people you caused to form together as a group due to your persecution. But you will be out of a job. For Gilbert, what you will do when there is no more reason to tell anyone that God hates gays? Half of your ministry will have evaporated along with those whose lives sit now in ruin and destruction. And don’t like. A great deal of use read and study exactly what fundamentalists talk about, what their leadership plans for court cases to move this forward, and what traditional catholics want (which is even worse that what you want).

    The purpose of your Culture War is to increase human ruin and misery for the sake of political power. It is a false gospel, accomplishing the opposite of what Christ intends and soils His name. You care nothing for Christ and His commandments. You care nothing for the unborn. And there is no limit to the horror and ruin you wish to cause gay people. Ultimately it is hard to see anything other that your faction intends to cause as much human suffering as possible. And like your brother Islamists, your religion false and is fully criminal in the eyes of God. But, what you have not realized is that in all this political power that your faction’s dedication to evil and sin has amassed, you have completely lost the culture of the nation. They have seen and see now what your faction really is: an almost satanic force of criminal religion bent on increasing human suffering for the purpose of power. They see it for what it is: apostate, distorted, and twisted Christianity.

    Prayerfully reconsider what you do and seek the salvation of God. Pray to Christ for a new heart made of flesh instead of stone. Your ministry appears in your articles here to be a continuously advancing agenda to harm people in this nation and to destroy their lives and families. As a result, you will burn in hell forever. This punishment God has in store for you makes us shudder in fear and sorrow. Repent while you still can.

    And now, even the secular part of the nation is screaming at you and your faction. They find you immoral to the highest degree of sin and evil. And they are not afraid of calling your endeavors by their real name: disobedience to Christ. And unlike the ages of old where Christians were looked down upon for following Christ, you are looked down upon by even the Heathen because you do not.

    Grayson, may I kindly recommend that you read every word of Kathy Baldock’s book ‘Walking the Bridgeless Canyon…An examination of the historical, cultural, psychological, medical, social, and religious lenses through which LGBT people have been viewed – with solutions to resolve decades of distortion’. Not long ago I was where you are in this article, BUT then this book was recommended to me and ‘I GOT EDUCATED’. Enjoy the journey.
