Two cases of Christian students who have refused to affirm homosexuality as a precondition to degree requirements are setting an antichrist precedent much like the story of Daniel. Judge for yourself.
A judge recently ruled against Julea Ward who was forced out of Eastern Michigan’s counseling program after she refused to participate in a diversity “remediation program”. The program was intended to repair the problem Ward had caused by saying she could not affirm homosexual behavior in a client but instead opted to refer the patient to someone who could better serve their needs. The university said that was “discrimination”.
Another case in Georgia is anticipating a similar fight. Per an ABC News report, a school is making approval of homosexuality a prerequisite for graduation from its counseling program.
Backed by the Alliance Defense Fund, Jennifer Keeton has filed suit against Augusta State University after, she said, school officials threatened to dismiss her from its counseling program when she refused to participate in a “remediation” plan to increase her tolerance of gays and lesbians after she made it known that she believed homosexuality was a personal choice.
Lou Engle leader of the Christian youth movement The Call told Charisma Magazine that hard times are surely ahead.
“I believe that the Supreme Court will probably go that way again,” Engle said. “This means that the Christian voice is being completely discriminated against, and it’s going to, I believe, release persecution on university students, and it’s only the beginning.”
Engle said Christian students will be forced to take a stand. “We’re in the days of Daniel. … You’ve got to trust that God will bring you divine promotion when you refuse to bow down to the image,” he said. “To compromise for the sake of getting a grade, you’re practicing to receive the mark of the beast.”
“In other words, if you can’t stand in this day, how are you going to stand when the real pressure heats up?” Engle continued. “We’re going to find out who the real Christians are.”
This isn’t just happening in academia. Its beginning to manifest itself in numerous employment arenas. The world (under the influence of the antichrist spirit) sees the refusal to affirm this abomination a major crime. The gay church helps by portraying it as a major sin. It is fast becoming the litmus for basic judgment of a person’s character. The cases and legal precedents being establish now will eventually become the law of the land. What will you do when it does. Will you be a Daniel and open your windows wide to do what you know is right? Or will you attempt to save yourself (and your family) by agreeing with it? This, my brothers and sisters is an inevitable conflict already prophesied to us in scripture.
I have had numerous Christians in the teaching, administrative and related fields ask me about this and its implication for them. I agree with Engle 100%. This is not a matter of if but when you will face it. To think that you can or will remain neutral is a grave error in judgment.
Consider the dilemma of those who will face the antichrist. If they worship the beast and take his mark to receive support, God will pour out his full wrath upon them. If they refuse the mark of the beast, they will be killed (immediately?) for their allegiance to God. Revelation 14:9,10; 13:16-17
You had better make up your mind now and determine within your heart that you will stay with God no matter what. We told you before open war is upon us. The false prophets continue to speak “peace and safety” (aka blessings and favor) but too many have no idea what is about to break open in this country. If you listen to these false voices, you are setting yourself up for sudden destruction.
