ONE THING WE ARE SURE OF--GOD HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH CALIFORNIA'S FIRES
One thing we are sure of; God had nothing to do with California’s fires.
Sure, the flames exploded the week after the State approved homosexual marriages. That is pure coincidence. Even though He “rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven” (Genesis 19:24) after they aggressively tried to force sodomy on two angels. We now have a different God Who does not judge sin, He is only love. We pay the TV preachers to assure us it is so.
Although lightening rained down out of heaven and started 1,730 fires and wind came down to spread it over 559,000 acres, never call this an “act of God.” We Americans do not want to hear about “judgement,” or responsibility for our conduct. If God did this he would be intolerant of sodomy. And of course we cannot tolerate intolerance.
Don’t: listen to all those Bible verses about God sending fire in His wrath like Ezekiel 22:31, "Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord GOD." Those passages are over 2,000 years old. We like a new religion. We are the little gods who decide what is right and wrong.
Besides, if God judged California, why didn’t he judge Massachusetts? And don’t bring us that old business about God not judging the Caaninites for four generations until their iniquity was full; “In the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full” (Genesis 15:16). Today we are smart enough to know God has changed. His patience never ends. Wow! Doesn’t that sound good?
Of course, we are not going to oppose homosexual marriages if the state burns down. It is a matter of priorities. Sexual perversion is more important than life itself. We will give up our homes and our lives, but we will not give up our sodomy.
