Silence is Golden (Except on this Day)

22 Apr

Friday, April 17, 2009 was the annual Day of Silence in high schools all across America. You may not have heard about it since it isn’t something that the schools or the PTA want you to know about.

How do I know that?

Jamie came home from her high school last Wednesday and showed me a small piece of paper that she had been handed by some strange woman at a table that was set up in her cafeteria. She had not seen this woman before in the school, but this woman obviously had permission to be there.

Here is the paper Jamie was handed by this strange woman:

She was not asked if she wanted to participate, nor given a chance to share her views with the woman. She was handed a card by an adult in her school, who could easily have been considered an authority figure, except that this strange woman was not actually part of the school system. Instead, this strange woman was some sort of volunteer who was promoting homosexuality as some sort of alternative lifestyle instead of calling it what the Bible calls it: SIN!

Very soon, in this country where freedom abounds, it will be illegal for me to call homosexuality a sin. In fact, on the day that H.R. 1913 – the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act is signed into law, I will be “required by law” to remove this blog post or face jail time.

When that day comes, may the Lord Jesus find me faithful to Him and His Word!

In the meantime, this is not a time for us as disciples of Jesus Christ to be silent about sin. We must call homosexuality what it is: sin, but we must NEVER turn away the homosexual from hearing the truth of the Gospel!

We must never forget that the true Gospel is a call to all men everywhere to turn from their sins and trust in Jesus Christ alone for salvation.

    Sorry to hear this happened to Jamie but glad to hear she was mature enough to bring it home.I know what this so called hate speech law has done to Canadiens, even Pastors speaking from the pulpit and in Europe also and I dread the day it arrives here.As far as the remaining faithful to Jesus when it does arrive, I just hope and will then pray that we are at least cellmates, and I say that not in jest or lightheartedly.

    Your love for the Lord is and always has been what I love most about you!I’m so thankful the Lord has blessed me with a husband as amazing as you are.You know you have my absolute love and support no matter the cost. We will put the Lord first always! And continue teaching our children to do the same. And we will glorify Him whatever our circumstances happen to be! He is Worthy!
