I don’t agree with Dr Clifford in his view that legalising gay marriage will bring on the Judgement of God. Indeed, I regard the New Testament prohibitions of homosexual activity in itself as ambiguous in the Greek original, and I regard the whole of the Old Testament as of no binding force on Christians. Oh, and I do wish Christian ministers would bring the same moral fervour to denouncing our various wars of aggression as they do to a spot of buggery. I publish this partly because it will give Ian B a stroke, and partly because I want to show support for Dr Clifford’s right to freedom of speech if the police decide he is guilty of hatecrime. SIG
SODOMITE SOCIETY INVITES
THE WRATH OF ALMIGHTY GOD
A solemn message from
Dr Alan C. Clifford
(Norwich Reformed Church)
In pursuing so-called ‘same-sex’ marriage, the UK, and now the USA, along with the decadent Western world in general, are only a short step from disaster…
If it becomes law, the wrath of Almighty God is unavoidable…
Since true marriage, family cohesion and the welfare of children are under attack as never before, our hitherto Christian-based civilization is on the path to extinction…
A greater threat than Islam is our own moral implosion…
We must repent or be ruined…
How does ‘gay’ sexual perversion become popular? The Prophet Ezekiel told us long ago when he explained why God punished the Jews with exile in Babylon in 597 BC. After centuries of growing religious and moral decline, they had become worse than the wicked Sodomites:
“As I live,” says the Lord GOD, “neither your sister Sodom nor her daughters have done as you and your daughters have done. Look, this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: She and her daughter had pride, fulness of food, and abundance of idleness; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty and committed abomination before me; therefore I took them away as I saw fit.” (Ezekiel 16: 48-50)
The great Genevan Protestant Reformer John Calvin (1509-64) commented:
While Moses explains the most filthy crime which reigned in Sodom (see Genesis 19), we must nevertheless remember what Ezekiel teaches, that the men of Sodom did not fall at once into such terrible wickedness; but that, in the beginning, luxury from the fulness of bread prevailed, and that afterwards, pride and cruelty followed. At length, when they were given up to [immorality], they were also driven headlong into brutal lusts. Therefore, if we dread this extreme of inordinate passion, let us cultivate temperance and frugality; and let us always fear, lest [an over-abundance] of food should impel us to luxury; lest our minds should be infected with pride on account of our wealth, and lest delicacies should tempt us to give the reins to our lusts.
So how can we restore the proper norms of correctly-defined marriage and valid sexuality? Only by heeding this practical wisdom and rejecting today’s ‘PC’ do-as-you-please pluralism. In short, we must return to ‘Bible basics’!
Ultimately, our only hope is the saving and sanctifying grace of God in Jesus Christ…
A brief sermon extract from a famous Welsh preacher sets out our only hope…
The truth he speaks is eternal…
TURN TO CHRIST OR BE TURNED INTO HELL
I come to you, a neighbour of yours, and a friend well known; for I have seen the deluge of the wrath of God coming upon the world, and I am here to warn you in time. A boy on the streets of Sodom ran wildly for his father’s house, saying, ‘The shower of fire is come, for a spark fell at my side, until my clothes nearly caught fire. Is there any way of escape?’
Though the warning came to Sodom, it was too late. But I have come here in behalf of my God to apprise you of it in time. I have seen the shower of brimstone, a live spark of it fell upon my guilty conscience, until I became almost all aflame. But I know to-day of a place of refuge, and there is time for you to flee there too.
O Lord my God, may this people flee to Thee! Let us flee to Calvary—‘And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land’ [Isa. 32: 2].
John Jones, Talsarn (1796-1857)
