Lot Had a Choice, But We Don't!
Lot Had a Choice, But We Don't!

Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelt in the cities of the plain and pitched his tent even as far as Sodom. But the men of Sodom were exceedingly wicked and sinful against the LORD.

(God) . turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly; and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed with the filthy conduct of the wicked (for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds);.

Genesis 13:12,13; 2 Peter 2:6-8 NKJV

Hello there -- Theo, CR's administrative assistant here on Circuit Rider's Range with a brief introduction. The comments below were written by cdh (alias Circuit Rider) before the infamous Supreme Court decision which nullified the Texas law against sodomy. Some updated items have been entered and others will be added over the next few days, but even now as you read it, you will see that things are progressing quite well for the sodomites and the lesbians in their agenda for this nation and ultimately the world!

Lot, when offered the choice by his uncle Abraham as to where he might move his family and vast possessions, decided he wanted the well watered plain of Jordan and eventually ended up living in Sodom. We are clearly informed that Lot was intensely grieved by the ungodliness to which he was constantly exposed in that city. He could have left Sodom as his sensitive conscience was awakened to the fact that he was living in an environment that had a moral stench that was more repulsive than the odors of an outdoor privy on a hot August afternoon in the old days, but he did not -- that is, until the day came and angels compelled him to leave before the devastating judgment of God fell upon the city and obliterated it out of existence!

For us, we really don't have the luxury of such a choice -- it's more a matter of preparing to face the conditions similar to what Lot experienced and recognizing that we can't simply "move out" -- it's not just a nationwide problem but it exists in a host of foreign nations as well.

There is a wide spread "take over" agenda underway -- sort of like the corporate world. A common expression is "corporate raider" whereby a company buys out and takes over another company -- sometimes it is not very pleasant (for the one which is being taken over) and the transaction is sometimes described as a "hostile" take over!

Our country, as well as many others in the world, is in the process of being "taken over" by what can only be described as the sodomite/lesbian cartel! These people are extremely well organized, have strong financial backing, have very intelligent people within their own ranks not to mention those from the "straight" community who give support, and have overwhelming sympathetic support from politicians, influential media people, the TV and movie industries, and those members of various professions such as educators, sociologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, doctors, lawyers, church leaders, pastors, etc.

Here are some significant things which have been happening:

    Infiltration of government and elected or appointed to positions of influence in government at all levels which has resulted in:

      A "first" for a Republican administration involved the appointment of an open and avowed sodomite to be ambassador to the country of Romania. It was reported that the "domestic partner" of the newly appointed ambassador was all smiles at the swearing in ceremony conducted by Secretary of State, Colin Powell! And why not? We tax payers are footing the bill for this "couple" as they represent the interests of the United States while they live in the ambassador's residence in Romania!

      Legislation partial to and favoring sodomites and lesbians while other groups are denied the benefits of such special legislation.

      The zealous pursuit of an agenda which includes state sanctioned "marriage" for same gender couples and the legal adoption of children by such couples.

    An aggressive agenda in the field of public education:

      Distribution of literature which conditions children and youth to accept sodomy and lesbianism as normal as well as acceptance of "families" with 2 "daddies" or 2 "mommies" as being completely normal!

      Exploration of human sexuality with a twist which informs students that same gender attraction is a normal thing and that some students are "born" that way.

      The formation of school clubs which identify as being sympathetic to those who are sodomite or lesbian "oriented" -- and such clubs will sponsor special activities which will advance the sodomite/lesbian agenda.

      June 2003 also saw glowing reports of the change of scenery in high school proms -- an increase in the number of same-sex couples attending proms with no resistance -- if anything, it is considered a great "advancement" in prom activities! It was well summed up with the question, "What kind of response came from school administrations to this trend?" Answer: "What's the big deal?" That says it all -- sodomy and lesbianism must be ok, even at the high school level, right?

    Culturally across the nation:

      Observance of "Gay Pride" days with parades or "marches" in cities and public officials (whether "straight" or otherwise) pressured to give visible support -- in other settings 2 or 3 days given to "taking over" a major theme park such as at Disney World in Orlando FL each June. Government agencies at the federal level are actively involved in "Gay Pride" events -- even AG John Ashcroft's Justice Department backpedaled and gave approval for employees to participate in such events if they so desired in June 2003! Across the "land of the free and the home of the brave" June 2003 saw an avalanche of "Gay Pride" events erupting everywhere with favorable publicity from a very sympathetic mass media!

      More and more court rulings will be in favor of the sodomite/lesbian agenda as the goal of full acceptance of sodomites and lesbians in all aspects of United States society is sought, along with isolation and punishment, where possible, of any who resist the sodomites and lesbians in reaching their desired objectives. The Supreme Court ruling regarding the Texas law on sodomy is just the beginning and does indeed open up a rather putrid can of worms -- since doing things privately among consenting individuals, is it possible that just about anything can happen when it comes to sexual depravity and perversion, so long as it is done privately?

      As could be expected there is a rash of front page articles related to the U.S. Supreme Court's overturning the Texas law which made it a criminal act for persons to commit sodomy. Newsweek 's cover story at end of June 2003 pictures a couple of men who are obviously a sodomite "couple" and a caption, "Is Gay Marriage Next?"

      Clubs and business establishments owned or controlled by sodomites and lesbians which are being more favorably publicized.

      Media outlets which are controlled by sodomites and lesbians -- may be print, radio, TV, or web sites on the internet.

      TV/movie industries producing more and more TV series and movies which present sodomy and lesbianism in a positive light -- also, producing films focusing on the "hate crimes" aspect where sodomites and lesbians have been victims of crimes due to their "orientation" -- graphic presentations such as these play on human emotions with the goal being that each person will have strong sympathy for the plight of sodomites and lesbians as they live in a society filled with "hate."

      Print and TV news media pull out all the stops when it comes to the so-called "hate crimes" -- that is, when a sodomite or lesbian is the victim of a violent crime, this event is kept before the public for days and days -- but when sodomites are involved in committing violent crimes, this is kept as hush-hush as possible and doesn't get national coverage -- a great example of the hypocrisy of the news media in this is seen in how they treated the Matthew Shepard murder and the Jesse Dirkhising murder -- Sheperd, a known sodomite was violently murdered, and the event was given vast national coverage by the major TV networks and print media -- church leaders publicly deplored the murder with much publicity -- however, 13-year-old Jesse Dirkhising was assaulted, raped, tortured, and murdered by 2 sodomites, but there was absolutely no national coverage on that one! And guess what? Our pious church leaders who were so vocal about Shepard's murder were very tight lipped and silent on the Dirkhising murder!

    The church and the sodomite/lesbian "invasion:"

      For some time a denomination has been established which caters to the sodomite/lesbian crowd -- it is the Metropolitan Community Church which began in Los Angeles in 1968 and is described as having "...grown into an international Christian denomination, with a special affirming outreach to God's gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered children." Here is how the pastor in the MCC in Los Angeles introduces himself at the church's web site:
      Greetings, in the name of Christ! My name is Reverend Neil G. Thomas. I have come here with my lover, Marc, from Bournemouth, England, to become the senior pastor of Metropolitan Community Church in Los Angeles. I am a gay man who passionately loves Jesus and is not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God for all of us who believe!

      A clear goal also has been the infiltration of other church groups -- the mainline denominations are particularly in conflict over pressure to change any statements in official rules or regulations that express disapproval of sodomy and lesbianism, or ordination of such persons for the ministry of the church.

      Pressure is also mounting with incidents already having taken place for pastors to perform "ceremonies" which are as close as one can get to doing a legal marriage for same gender couples -- the goal ultimately is for the day to come in which pastors will actually perform a marriage for 2 sodomites or 2 lesbians just the same as performing a marriage for a heterosexual couple -- this will lead to "family" celebrations with a sodomite or a lesbian couple presenting its adopted child in baptism or an act of dedication.

      As an example of a mainline really torn up over the sodomite/lesbian issue just follow the happenings within the United Methodist Church -- a number of bishops are already on record as favoring sodomy and lesbianism as expressed in what they describe as a "loving covenant relationship" or whatever -- the General Conference will meet in spring of 2004 at Pittsburgh PA and at this stage all looks favorable for some kind of changes to be made which will open the door a bit wider for the sodomites and lesbians to come on in, participate, be ordained, be joined in "holy union" ceremonies, etc -- the way in part has been prepared due to these great "dialog" sessions between "evangelicals" and the sodomite/lesbian crowd! A glowing report of "progress" in the Western Pennsylvania conference of "dialog" sessions has evoked dreams of using the W. PA experience as a "model" for General Conference 2004 -- what better way to enhance the "reconciliation" process than for the host conference to present a report with visual images of how we are now civil and "respect" each other's positions -- we are now at the stage of "agreeing to disagree" and will avoid splitting the denomination

    International gains:

      The record is clear - an aggressive agenda is being pursued not limited to the United States, but extensively world wide -- however, the big "stone wall" at this point is found in nations that are controlled by Islam -- no "Gay Pride Days" with public parades are held in Saudi Arabia, Iraq or Iran for instance! Just a challenge to you who are pushing the sodomite/lesbian agenda -- why aren't you as aggressive in pushing your agenda in those countries just mentioned? And as you set up shop there, try to keep your head as you publicly pressure all authorities, religous and government, that sodomy and lesbianism are quite normal and should be accepted without question!

      The Netherlands was the first country in Europe to legalize "marriage" between 2 sodomites or 2 lesbians some time back and Belgium followed suit near the end of January 2003. And as you may recall, the Ontario Court of Appeals ruled in mid-June 2003 that sodomites and lesbians could be legally "married." The result was an instant combination of celebration and immediate rush to apply for and receive "marriage" licenses. The interesting twist is that there are absolutely no residency requirements and couples can come from anywhere, including the good old U.S. of A., and get married after obtaining a license!

So, where does that leave us?

We do have some options which we can pursue:

We can try to get out -- that is, retreat to some place where the sodomite/lesbian disease has yet to infect a society such as ours. But that would mean moving to a country such as Saudi Arabia which was just mentioned. Oh, oh -- that means you would have another problem -- Christians don't fare too well in a country controlled and dominated by Islam because Christians are considered infidels by those who truly and zealously practice the Islamic faith -- further, the goal of Islam as spelled out in the Koran (Islam's "bible") is to rid the world of all infidels so that only the practitioners of Islam remain and the only god acknowledged and worshipped is Allah! Hey, don't get upset at me because I said that -- that's not my opinion -- get a copy of the Koran and read it for yourself and quit listening to the propaganda floating around this country about how Christianity and Islam can cozy up to each other like 2 love birds in spring time and we'll be one big happy loving community -- the real problem here is corrupted Christianity and corrupted Islam with too many followers of both not really familiar with what the Koran and the Bible REALLY teach about outcomes and ultimate control of this world! So moving to a country where the sodomites and lesbians haven't pulled off an invasion as they have in the U.S. and some other places won't work too well unless you are willing to convert and become a zealous Muslim!

OR we can try to purchase our own little island -- somewhere in the tropic zone of the Pacific would be nice -- you know, set up housekeeping there with friends who share the same convictions regarding God's clearly revealed standards for human behavior and relationships. But then, to buy a little island and get it equipped for human habitation would be a real budget busting experience that few could really afford!

OR we can "retreat" in a different way and ultimately run up the white flag -- enter into dialog and quit referring to sodomy and lesbianism as "sinful" or even worse -- refer to it by using the term "abomination" in spite of the fact that God Himself applies the term to that practice! Accept the warped, twisted, and distorted interpretations of the Bible that the "scholars" who are co-conspirators with the sodomites and lesbians throw at us, and in accepting those "scholarly" interpretations we just pitch the Bible into the garbage can because you no longer need it -- finally, we excitedly play the "To get along, go along" game. By doing this we will no longer be the cause of conflict and no longer will we be tagged with the label, "homophobe," and all the other labels which the sodomite/lesbian cartel hung on us. We'll be one loving harmonious community demonstrating how we respect each other and openly accept each other's lifestyles without criticism -- and in so doing we shall establish a bit of heaven on earth!

But on second thought, for a few of us, it looks like a retreat policy is not acceptable nor very workable, is it? Remember, Lot had a simple choice -- he could have left Sodom and that would have been it, but for us, it's not that easy ........

So the final option is this:

We will continue to confess Jesus as Savior and Lord before the world, knowing this will be a divisive thing in itself (Matthew 10:32-40)

We will continue to insist that He is absolutely the only way of salvation and hope (John 14:6; Revelation 11:15)

We will remember that in being so identified with Jesus and as we call the world to repentance from all sin in His name that we will incur the hatred of the world (John 15: 16-21; 16:1-3); that we are to "earnestly contend for the faith once delivered to the saints" (Jude 3,4); that we will bear in mind that there is no "common ground of agreement" between the people born of the Spirit of God and those of the unregenerate world around us (2 Corinthians 6:14-18); that we will not love the world (1 John 2:15-17); and we will remember that to be a friend of the world (compromise with those of the world and adopt their ungodly standards as being legitimate in opposition to God's standards) is to make ourselves enemies of God (James 4:1-4).

We will remember the sober warnings given by Jesus and the New Testament authors concerning false teachers (Matthew 24:4,5,11,24; 2 Peter 2:1-3: Jude 3,4) and those who will preach "another Jesus," be of "another spirit," and proclaim "another gospel" (2 Corinthians 11:4).

We will remember that there will be those who began in the faith and knew the truth but somewhere along the way have departed from the doctrine of Jesus Christ and are like a dog returning to its vomit or a pig that was washed returning to wallowing in the mud
(2 John 9-11; 2 Peter 2:12-22).

We will refuse to walk in the counsel of the ungodly, nor shall we stand in the path of sinners, and we shall certainly refuse to sit in the seat of the scornful but rather we shall choose to delight ourselves in the law of our God and meditate in His Word on a daily basis (Psalm 1; Psalm 119).

We will continue to "fight the good fight of faith" (1 Timothy 6:12) realizing our real battle is not with flesh and blood but with vicious satanic powers and human instruments under their control (Ephesians 6:10-18; John 8:44; Acts 13:8-11).

We will, by the all sufficient grace of God, "hold fast" and overcome the world with the exciting anticipation of sharing in Christ's glory and His eternal Kingdom forever (Revelation 2:13,25; 3:11; Revelation 2:7,11,17,26; 3:5,12,21; Colossians 3:1-7; 1 John 3:1-3; Revelation 22:1-15)!

Here is what is coming (and in some cases has already been underway as previously noted):

    Legislative changes which will continue to give special privileges and protection to sodomites and lesbians that other groups do not have.

    Extensive and concentrated propaganda campaigning will continue through the mass media and in our educational systems pressuring all persons to accept sodomy and lesbianism as being "normal" and anyone objecting is automatically guilty of bigotry, prejudice, and hatred -- and in the future with the pressure to pass certain legislation, one could be charged with a "hate crime" by merely speaking or preaching against the abomination of sodomy/lesbianism!

    Increased funding in the vain attempt to control and cure AIDS -- just remember how it got started and the persons who are primarily responsible for the disease reaching pandemic proportions in parts of the world.

    All states eventually granting the right to same gender "couples" to legally "marry," with the result that all the rights, privileges, and benefits which heterosexual married couples now possess will be granted to a pair of sodomites or a pair of lesbians because they too are now "married!"

    All states eventually will approve the legal adoption of children by sodomite and lesbian "couples." In some states already this is being done and in some others court battles are taking place over the issue. Ultimately more and more court decisions will favor the sodomites and lesbians -- can't have members of the judiciary or juries (where juries are involved) risk being labeled "homophobic" can we?

    Church groups one by one will capitulate and accept sodomites and lesbians into the life and activities of the church without objection to the lifestyles these people practice. Church "marriages" will be performed for sodomite and lesbian "couples" -- they will present their adopted children for baptism or dedication under the blessing of the pastor and congregation -- and sodomites and lesbians will be publicly ordained into the ministry of the church -- again without objection -- the dialog process will eventually pay off in a big way for the sodomite/lesbian cartel!

    And then the big surprise -- when God decides this nonsense and folly of rejecting His revelation and the gift of complete deliverance from sin through His Son, Jesus Christ, has gone on long enough, then He will intervene in the affairs of the human race -- the moment will come when all will know there is one God Who is altogether holy and this God expects all who profess to believe in Him to be holy in conduct and all relationships! Want to read something interesting in this regard? Just take a look at 2 Thessalonians 1:1-12 and the book of Jude! See what I mean by God's BIG SURPRISE?

    Some closing warnings given by Jesus:

    "And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed. In that day, he who is on the housetop, and his goods are in the house, let him not come down to take them away. And likewise the one who is in the field, let him not turn back. Remember Lot's wife. Whoever seeks to save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it. I tell you, in that night there will be two men in one bed: the one will be taken and the other will be left. Two women will be grinding together: the one will be taken and the other left. Two men will be in the field: the one will be taken and the other left." And they answered and said to Him, "Where, Lord?" So He said to them, "Wherever the body is, there the eagles will be gathered together."

    "Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name's sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved."

    Then the Lord said, "Hear what the unjust judge said. And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?";.

    Luke 17:26-37; Matthew 24:9-13; Luke 18:6-8 NKJV
