Homosexuality: A Biblical Discussion

A few years ago I wrote a series of posts addressing what the Bible Teaches on Homosexuality. I wanted to make them readily available on one page. Below are the links to each of the articles.  These posts have been updated and edited as a booklet as well that is available on Amazon or you can email me directly for orders of 5 or more (preacherwesley at gmail.com).

Women in Combat: A Christian’s Thoughts

For years now in the United States we have allowed women to serve in the military. As warfare has evolved many of these women found themselves in combat situations. However, the official policy of the military was that women would not be allowed to serve in direct combat. This policy changed today. Some view this as a great victory for equality. Women are now no longer limited in how they will serve their country. Others claim this will result in the military lacking effectiveness.

I want to share with you today my thoughts on this issue. These are the thoughts of a Christian trying to think through the issues of our day.

What is a Child?

55,875,00. Let that number sink into your mind for a moment. 55,875,000. By comparison the number of lives lost in every conflict the United States of America has been involved in, including the Civil War, is roughly 1.4 million. The Holocaust, which is considered the greatest tragedy of this century, claimed the lives of 5.8 million. 55,875,000 is 10 times that number.

55,875,000 is the number of children aborted in the 40 years since Roe vs. Wade was decided. This decision legalized abortion and sanctioned the killing of children in the womb. Sadly, 55,875,000 is not a static number. It grows by around 1.2 million people a year. This fact means that by the time I am 67 there will be over 110,000,000 killings by abortion in this country. Or to put it another way, 100 times more killings by abortion in this country than casualties of war.

I vote, But I Trust in God

This is part 5 of the series on voting. Please read the other four parts in order to give context this post.  You can read them here, here, here, and here.

Next week I will vote.  I have in mind the people and measures that I think will best promote good and limit evil in our fallen world.  I, along with thousands of other Americans, will stand in line, tell the people my name, then go to the voting booth and use the touch screen.

On that day, some people will rejoice that their “side” won.  Others will be appalled that their “side” lost.  Anytime you have an election some will be happy and some will be sad.

Government is not the Solution

In this series I have hoped (in as much is possible in three blog posts) to talk some about a Christian perspective in voting.  I appreciate the comments of others in helping to accomplish this goal.  In this post I want to address a concern I have.

It seems that some people look to the government as the solution to all of man’s problems.  “Immorality is high in our nation, thus we need to change the laws to make man moral.  We have too much poverty, thus we need to tax and redistribute.”  The argument seems to put the weight of responsibility on the government and elected officers.
