Our society has been seeing dynamic change in “culturally acceptable sexuality” since the 60’s. Things slowed down a bit in the 80’s and 90’s, but in the past few years sexuality has come roaring back to the forefront of nearly every news article, blog post, and YouTube video because of the pressure homosexuals have put on the media.
We’re now being led to believe that a lifestyle that was viewed as abnormal, perverted, and/or sinful for thousands of years is now the generally accepted norm. And it only took about 40 years.
I’m not here today to debate homosexuality. I’ve been plenty verbal about that one.
In fact, I’m not here to make any comment on where we’ve been or where we are today when it comes to our thoughts on sex.
I want to focus on the future.
I want to make a prediction.
A couple years ago I predicted on Facebook that if homosexuals won the legal right to “marry,” people with all sorts of aberrant sexual fantasies would come from miles around looking for their piece of the pie. I proposed that gay “marriage” would be remembered by history as little more than the gateway drug for a dynamic sexual revolution in America. And though I had gay-rights advocates booing my prophecy, it didn’t take long for my prediction to come true. A few months ago I referenced the fulfillment of my prediction in “Um, I Told You So.”
So, now I’m broadening my foretelling. Here it goes.
I believe that – barring an act of God – I will see the following forms of sexuality legalized (or at least generally accepted) in my lifetime.
Polygamy is three or more people “marrying” each other. Of course, true marriage in the sight of God can only occur between one man and one woman, but there are plenty of religious charlatans and greedy politicians who say marriage is only a piece of paper. And in a culture where you can watch TV shows about polygamists (Sister Wives, My Five Wives, & Big Love) and where three lesbians can get “hitched,” it doesn’t take Nostradamus to guess that it won’t be long before the government realizes that laws against polygamy were instituted by people who believed in God (which is obviously outdated and crazy), and that there’s really nothing “wrong” with it as long as everyone’s a consenting adult; because “wrong” is what we make of it!
And speaking of “consenting adults,” would you believe that the University of Cambridge hosted a conference this year where the following was said and applauded,
“Paedophilic interest is natural and normal for human males.”
“At least a sizeable minority of normal males would like to have sex with children . . . . Normal males are aroused by children.”
Again, what’s to stop a nation who rejects God’s standards of morality from lowering the age of consent? We already know that American elementary schoolers are participating in sex acts hammered into their skulls by entertainment industry. Apart from God’s Word, if I have “data” that it’s not harmful, why wouldn’t I allow older adults to have sex with consenting children?
Again, I’m not here to argue the plethora of reasons this is obviously sinful, but I am here to say that I believe the age of consent will be lowered in America before I die.
Certainly no country would ever allow incestual relationships! Everyone knows those are bad!
“A jury might find nothing untoward in the advance of a brother towards his sister once she had sexually matured, had sexual relationships with other men and was now ‘available’, not having [a] sexual partner.”
In light of the genetic abnormalities that can form in incestuous relationships, the same Australian judge said,
“But even that falls away to an extent [because] there is such ease of contraception and ready access to abortion.”
Ladies and gentlemen, both God’s Word and history have shown us that mankind devolves into lower and lower sexual perversions. And we cannot forget that American is like the younger sibling of the world – when something becomes readily acceptable in Europe, America isn’t too far behind.
Listen, I don’t like to have to say this.
But there will likely come a day when Christians are being persecuted openly in the streets of our most formerly conservative towns, and people will call our faith disgusting. When that time comes we will be able to show everyone that God’s Word predicted this would happen and even laid out the consequences. Yet even though none of us deserve His grace, He willingly offers forgiveness, salvation, and eternal change!
Lord willing, my prediction will be wrong.
But I don’t think so.
“God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. 25 For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26 For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
28 And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; 32 and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.” Romans 1:24-32
At the same time, I do want to end with a word of sanctified optimism.
God can do anything and everything He sees fit. We have seen great spiritual awakening and revival many times in this nation. Perhaps the Lord will see fit to use His people to affect such a change before I die. That would be amazing, and I would be happy to be proven wrong.
Remember, my prediction can only come true “barring an act of God.”
May we all be used as that act of God.
