SACREMENTO, CA – The future has arrived and with it has come a new reality. California Legislators started off 2011 by implementing AB 2199, a law that codifies homosexuality as inborn. This particular bill overturned the 60 year law (under California Code 8050) that required doctors and mental health care professionals to find a cure for homosexuality and other types of sexual deviant behavior. Long Beach Democratic Assemblywoman Bonnie Lowenthal (left), the author of the bill AB 2199, stated that the previous law was outdated. Lowenthal argued (without any evidence) that people are born homosexuals and have choice in the matter.
It will be interesting to see how this law affects Christian Social Workers, Counselors, and Churches. One News Now One News Now interviewed Christian Social Worker Veronica Esqueda of Los Angeles.
“I do think it’s going to open up their comfort level, and I think it’s going to make it more acceptable,” she explains. “Obviously, I am one that believes that it’s not an error — you are born the way God intended you to be,” she notes, adding that she believes homosexuality is a choice.”
This reminds me of how John the Baptist was in the wilderness loudly crying out against King Herod’s sexual immorality when he was involved in an adulterous affair with his brother’s wife Herodias. Herod eventually divorced his wife and married Herodias. Herodias became extremely angry and wanted him dead when John the Baptist denounced she and King Herod as adulteres and called for their repentance. So what did she do? She had her daughter dance for King Herod. While he was in a drunken lust, Herodias’s daughter requested the head of John the Baptist. The moral of this true biblical story is that when God raises up a prophetic voice to cry out against sexual immorality (or sin period), the enemy gets angry and wants to chop off the head of the church which is God’s prophetic voice within the Earth.
The spirit of herod versus God’s prophetic voice
The homosexual activist movement is the new Herod, enraged because we preach against their sexual immorality and command repentance and change. With the aid of the apostate church, they seek to keep people hostage in homosexuality by “preaching” homosexuality isn’t sinful or abnormal. Warning: to my fellow Christian counselors and pastors: you can no more reason with these activists than John the Baptist could with Herodias. They want our heads! If you compromise the Word of God, embrace the “gospel of inclusion” and become a gay affirming church they will welcome you with open arms. But would it profit you to gain the world’s acceptance only to lose your soul?
How will this new law affect churches and counselors? It may have to cost some Christian Organizations their 501 c 3 non-profit designation. It may cost others their government grants and money for programs and building projects. It may cause some to lose popularity. Christian counselors, will you stand for God’s Word or man’s law when counseling someone that is homosexual? Christians may have lawsuits filed against them to force them to be silent. That’s what happened in Brazil(here). This new law will view anyone that is a biblically sound Christian as a bigot, hatemonger and one that discriminates against a minority group. Figuritively, this law is a page taken out of the homosexual agenda . Point four of the agenda makes gays look good. Point five make the victimizers look bad. As we stated in past articles, Prop 8: Spiritual Warfare in California Part 1, and Prop 8: Spiritual Warfare in California Part 2 we’re not fighting against flesh and blood, but against a well organized evil spiritual beings that control this world system.
As Christians we must stand on the Word of God and speak the Truth. A famous quote by Edmund Burke states, ” All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” We can’t be silent now! The gospel of the Kingdom must be preached unto all nations . Its only when we do this that the end will come. Keep in mind dear saints, that although adversity and persecution is sure to come we must fight the good fight of faith.
