Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Isaiah 5:20 — King James Version

God’s Wrath on Unrighteousness

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world,g in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.

Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.

Romans 1:18-32 — English Standard Version

 

This story was on our local news for no less than a three-minute segment. It was one of the most focused upon stories on our local news on Monday evening past. Not that this was an abomination, sinful, and how lost we are and this is wrong. No, no, no — this story was on our local news this past Monday elevating, celebrating, extolling the wonderfulness, the inclusiveness, the progress we’re making as a result of DC Comics having in their most recent issue of Superman being bisexual and having a male boyfriend.

This story was given by the two talking heads behind the desk who in the past have mentioned the churches they attend, and how they are Christians. And all during their reporting on the following, they spoke of it as if it were a good thing. A sweet thing. An enlightening thing. The right thing.

And as they went on praising DC Comics and speaking of “coming out day” and the importance of this comic coming out the producers of our local news program made sure that no less than every 12 to 15 seconds during the story the screen was filled with the illustration from the comic of Superman giving his boyfriend a passionate kiss.

Think this is just one of those things? Isolated? No big deal? There will be kids from the age of 5, 6 years on up buying and reading this issue of Superman. It’s being pushed big time. Along with all the consequent erosion of morality, lies, and delusions being funneled into both children, young people, and adults. All falling for the lies. All going along with all of this.

It’s why we are where we are.

Do you honestly believe for a nanosecond that if it were true that in America 70% of the population is Christian there would be comic books published like this? That our courts would have given the stamp of approval on homosexual marriage? That our schools, government, military, and every institution — including a growing number of professed Christian churches would be accepting and approving of these sexual deviances, these sexual perversions, these sexual immoralities against God and nature!

If such were true, that about 7 out of 10 people in America are “Christian”  our country, our people, our government, our daily lives would be RADICALLY different than they are. Our schools and churches would be different. Our courtrooms would not be overflowing. Our prisons filled beyond capacity.

And you truly believe our best days lie ahead of U.S.?

Dear ones, that could be, can only be true and come to pass if those professing to be Christian are truly, sincerely renewed of mind and spirit within. That they have been regenerated and transformed by the Supernatural power of the Holy Spirit. And that we are looking into the inerrant infallible living and active Word of God and having it reflect back into our daily lives.

That the Word is a mirror [See James 1 Christian Standard Bible (biblehub.com)] in which we are to look into intently, rigorously, continually, consistently [there is a difference between continually and consistently and you can look it up if you do not think there is] prayerfully, faithfully. With the faith of a child. Not adding to. Not omitting from. Not making the simple and clear complex and muddy. Hear God. Believe God. Obey God. Submit to the truth.

Ah, there’s the rub! Submission! One of the dirtiest words in modern language! Who wants to submit!?

Well, folks, it’s either submit and obey, believe, live accordingly with spiritual understanding which can only come through SUBMISSION AND BELIEF — it’s either that way or the way to hell for eternity.

Don’t like that? Don’t agree?

This is not according to me. I’m nothing more than a speck. A mere old foot soldier in the army of Christ. I listen to and follow my Commander, my Leader, my Commander-in-Chief, my Lord, my King into battle DAILY attempting to hear Him well and correctly and follow as He leads me knowing He will not lead me astray, into harm’s way, anywhere I’m not supposed to be and that wherever He leads, whatever He puts me in, or allows, is for my good and benefit. Even if I do not see it at that time. It’s all a part of the walk. Sanctification leading to true perfection is only attained when given a new name, a new body for eternity in heaven. And everything leading to that is for a reason. And for my good. Even though in my feeble finite mind I’m not keen to think like that as I’m up to my eyeballs at times [of my own doing because I failed to listen and thought I knew better, my way was the best way].

So, I do not want to disobey.

I want to please my King.

As best I can while still in this sinful flesh. Being in this ongoing escalating spiritual war.

Do you?

Are you willing to submit and obey? To look into the Word of God and have it reflect back into your heart, your spirit, your mind, and life and then peer honestly into what that reflection is revealing?

Some will shrug this story off and say it’s nothing. And we should not make more of it than we should — nor should we make less of it, but we should see it in the pieces coming together creating the picture of the true state and condition of our lost nation tumbling deeper and deeper into darkness, into sin, into perversions and immoralities, further away from God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the Word of God.

And that isn’t good.

I know an unbelieving man, a man who professes to not have any religion, any faith, except in himself and he has said to me while face to face with him, “I think the real trouble with our country is that we once were a Christian nation and we no longer are a Christian nation.”

This man grew up Jewish and has spurned and turned aside from his Jewish roots.

He has no religion. No faith.

And yet even he knows.

Just as the Bible tells us EVERYONE DOES whether they will admit it to anyone else or not, but EVERYONE knows yet they hide, they lie, they deny, their work to be otherwise occupied and busy as possible so as not to have to think.

What a sad world, what a sad, lost and into the abyss nation we now have.

And the ONLY WAY to change it? Truly? Is for those professing to be Christ’s to TRULY BE HIS. And to REPENT sincerely, Not just feeling a wee bit of remorse. Desiring to “feel better” about ourselves and things. The only thing that will change U.S. for the better is true sincere Christian REVIVAL. And all that means. Because evil never rests or sleeps. And its devotees are legion. The greater sum of those called human.

So, we have our work cut out for us, do we not dear friends, loved ones, brothers, sisters, pastors, teachers in this faith called Christian?

And if not believing any of this?

Oh my…it would behoove those to thank God for their next breath and heartbeat giving them an opportunity to come out from the darkness and into the Light, the Truth, the Way, and the Life which is only as a true disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ.

And if failing to submit now? Al will submit eventually. And, again, tragically, for the overwhelming majority when that time of submission arrives they will have a sorrow-filled suffering in agony and torment FOR ETERNITY TO PONDER WHY THEY REFUSED TO BELIEVE, WHY THEY REFUSED TO SUBMIT WHEN THEY HAD THE OPPORTUNITY AND THE DOOR OF GRACE AND SALVATION WAS STILL OPEN TO THEM…

Appeasing evil, appeasing sin, applauding and lauding sin and perversions, immorality, lawlessness and all those things that go against God and His Word does not bring progress, perfection, a better world, or people together. Not even close, for…

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 6:23 — King James Version

And we’re all paying, serving something or someone. All are submitting to something whether they believe that or are willing to acknowledge that fact.

Most submitting to and being SLAVES to this world and its sin.

Leading to death.

No superhero’s here to swoop in and save the day, save a person, save a planet.

Only faith and obedience in the life shed blood, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ can save anyone.

There are no supermen that can save. But many men conspire to lead millions to their eternal deaths.

Only the Supernatural power of the Spirit of God, which is real and not a comic book, not a fictional story can save.

Imagine that…

DC Comics makes new Superman bisexual on “Coming Out Day”

 

Tuesday, October 12, 2021

By Ryan Foley

Reprinted from The Christian Post

 

An upcoming comic book issue will profile a same-sex relationship between Superman’s son and a fellow journalist, making it the latest reintroduction of a well-established comic book character under the lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, and transgender banner.

DC Comics announced Monday that “the life of Jon Kent, the Superman of Earth and son of Clark Kent and Lois Lane” will take a “bold new direction” in the upcoming issue of the comic book series Superman: Son of Kal-El, scheduled for release on Nov. 9. Accompanied by a subheadline declaring that “Earth’s New Superman Comes out as Bisexual,” a promo for Superman: Son of Kal-El # 5 features a picture of Jon Kent in his Superman uniform locked in a same-sex kiss with a male reporter.

A brief summary of the upcoming issue states: “Just like his father before him, Jon Kent has fallen for a reporter. After initially striking up a friendship with reporter Jay Nakamura, he and Jon become romantically involved in the pages of SUPERMAN: SON OF KAL-EL # 5.”

Officials with DC Comics who worked on the issue shared their collective excitement about the depiction of a beloved comic book character as bisexual.

“I’ve always said everyone needs heroes and everyone deserves to see themselves in their heroes and I’m very grateful DC and Warner Bros. share this idea,” said Tom Taylor, who wrote the comic book issue. “Superman’s symbol has always stood for hope, for truth and for justice. Today, that symbol represents something more. Today, more people can see themselves in the most powerful superhero in comics.”

Artist John Timms proclaimed that he was “incredibly honored to work beside Tom on the SUPERMAN: SON OF KAL-EL series showing Jon Kent tackling his complex modern life, while also saving the world from its greatest threats, villains and menaces.”

DC Chief Creative Officer and Publisher Jim Lee also expressed enthusiasm about the upcoming comic book issue and the introduction of Jon Kent as a bisexual man.

“We couldn’t be prouder to tell this important story from Tom Taylor and John Timms,” he said. “We talk a lot about the power of the DC Multiverse in our storytelling and this is another incredible example. We can have Jon Kent exploring his identity in the comics as well as Jon Kent learning the secrets of his family on TV on Superman & Lois. They coexist in their own worlds and times, and our fans get to enjoy both simultaneously.”

While DC Comics did not acknowledge this explicitly, the announcement that Jon Kent is a bisexual character coincided with the so-called “National Coming Out Day,” a day recognized by the Biden administration and described by the lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, and transgender activist group Human Rights Campaign “as a reminder that one of our most basic tools is the power of coming out.”

“Thirty-three years ago, on the anniversary of the National March on Washington for Homosexual and Lesbian Rights, we first observed National Coming Out Day. … The occasion has been recognized on Oct. 11 every year since,” according to the lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, and transgender group.

The characterization of Jon Kent as bisexual is not the first attempt by DC Comics to make overtures to the lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, and transgender community by rebranding well-established characters as members of the community. In an issue of Batman: Urban Legends published in August, the comic book publisher revealed that Robin, the sidekick of Batman, was romantically interested in a male friend.

The efforts to make prominent superhero characters members of the lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, and transgender community come as the lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, and transgender advocacy group GLAAD has pushed for lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, and transgender characters to account for 20% of all television characters by 2025. Examples of other notable characters recently reintroduced as lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, and or transgender include Batwoman, who was portrayed as a lesbian on the CW series “Batwoman” and Mr. Ratburn on “Arthur,” who entered into a same-sex marriage on a 2019 episode of the PBS program based on the long-running children’s book series.

DC Comics first began working to incorporate lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, and or transgender characters into storylines featuring pre-established superheroes nearly a decade ago, when the comic book publisher faced considerable backlash for depicting the Green Lantern as a homosexual man. In 2013, as the publishing company began to embrace lesbian, homosexual, bisexual and transgender activism in the past decade, a guest author who opposed same-sex marriage had his work edited out of an anthology series.

At the same time, two authors of the Batwoman comics left DC Comics in protest of the company’s request that they put aside their plans to include the title character’s same-sex wedding as part of the series.
