Moab Pride, Really? Not something to be proud about.



A friend of mine just returned from a vacation from Colorado, and on the way home he and his wife stopped in the town of Moab, Utah. They stopped at several hotels trying to find a place to lay down their heads. Finally after a long search they found a room for $ 186.00 for one night = that’s the price for a bed and a shower. They begin to ask around why so many people were in town, and why all the hotels were booked. The answer: A Gay Convention. Yes, there were gay people everywhere.

My friend and his wife went to a pizza place, and inside the establishment were men holding hands with one another, and two men in a booth towards the back kissing on one another. He told me that it made him sick. He said, “I didn’t know there were so many gay people.”

Yes, gay people are everywhere we look today. The term gay makes it socially acceptable. The word that the Bible uses is homosexual, or sodomite (Romans 1).

I was listening to a sermon today by the late Adrian Rogers. He preached on the topic -The Last Step Down. Sexual perversion of every type was the reason for the fall of the Roman Empire. Today we look around and we see the same thing happening in America. Today people call it a new morality – what was wrong with the old morality? People were healthier, and I would go out on a limb and say, and happier. There are a lot of very sad and depressed homosexual individuals. The answer is not more indulgence – it is discovering a new life through the person of Jesus Christ. Here is how Jesus handled the sexual sin issue – Go and sin no more (See John 8). Pretty simple and clear to me.

I know a mother who had two sons who died from AIDS. Both of them got involved with the homosexual lifestyle because of the money that flows. There is a young man that I know who has used his homosexual lifestyle to appear in porn movies for homosexuals. Yes, there is a terrible price to pay. This guy is not happy, nor healthy. He has on several occasions taken a few two many pills to deaden his conscience.

I am not a scientist, but I can look around me and completely understand that God created all things to procreate, and without this single act the human race would disappear. This is the end product of a homosexual lifestyle. Isn’t it time just to think?

The people of Moab, Utah do not deserve to have to face having their town turned into a homosexual convention. I wonder just what kind of publicity I would receive if I hosted an all heterosexual conference and placed banners on light poles in town that promoted sexual relations between a man and a woman? Now, I just may be onto something!!!

The Bible says, “For this reason God gave them up to vile passions.” (Romans 1:26)

Today we are hearing about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT), and now even people who claim they were born with no gender. Its just sin folks – thats all it is. You can dress up, and go out into the streets, but it doesn’t make it acceptable.

And those are a few of my thoughts today.
