Thursday, 18 July 2013
As I was coming from visiting my pastor-friend, pastor Prince, yesterday evening, June 27th 2013, the reporter on the radio news channel that was playing in the car was reading news headlines of the day and mentioned one in particular that caught my attention and really disturbed me.
He gave brief news on President Barak Obama’s speech in Senegal, during his current African tour visit. The president of the United States of America was telling the African nations to recognize the “gay rights.” Then the reporter went on to mention that the government of United States of America and of the European Countries (notice I say the governments) threatened African nations that if they are not going to “recognize gay rights” then they are going to cut monetary aid to Africa. What a cunning trap?
It is a cunning coercion. A reverse psychology to make us think Africa depends on them and they don’t depend on Africa at all, forgetting that the money they have a large portion of it is from the land of Africa. The morality of the western government officials is corrupt, I’ll dare to say. Because this hot issue boils down to the moral values that we each embrace. What is the basis of their moral values? What determines evil and good. Are they drawing this from the Holy Scriptures in the Bible or are they using humanistic and uninformed arguments of a deprived mind that know not wisdom?
Such government officials assume that Africa has to trail behind them in fear and trembling and has to agree in everything that the western governments endorse. Africa is not a lost continent. We are not “the dark continent” anymore as we used to be called. The light of the Gospel of the Truth of Jesus Christ is shining here now. You cannot deceive us. We are not unaware.
It is interesting how an issue of homosexuality is causing a rift between continents and threatens peace and unity. They are treating Africa as if it is Africa who is the threat to world peace. As if Africa is standing in the way of progress. Nothing could be more further from the truth.
Yet I hear an interesting voice, too, in this call from these western nations. I hear a cry of help which echoes the desire for African support. Only that they want Africa to support their selfish agendas.
Just because the homosexuals were celebrating their day this week doesn’t mean we have to fear.
But the question comes. What rights of the homosexuals are being violated in Africa, if at all? Is it that we refuse to legalize homosexuality in Africa? By the way, why do we refuse to legalize it here in Africa? What rights of homosexuals are they denied, if any? The right of speech? Which speech? The right to life? The right to privacy? The right to lead in a church? Whose church? Are you now going to force the Christian church to twist scriptures to entertain evil and propagate lies?
Are homosexuals denied education? No. Except for Christian seminary. And that is because the Bible has not two ways. If you are a homosexual then you are undoubtedly living in sin and you CANNOT be allowed to bring that sin into the camp of God’s people. Yes, you may come to church and hear the message that will set you free from homosexuality, but you cannot be allowed to shepherd God’s flock. God hates sin and sinners alike. And homosexuality is no exception. That is why God commands all people everywhere to repent from their own sins. Repentance is inevitable for the shepherding of the flock of God.
Are homosexuals denied the right to drive? Not at all. Go into the streets of Windhoek and you will find them driving. Even in Oshakati and Lusaka alike. Are homosexuals denied the right to have a job? No. They are here working. But what is the fuss all about?
Although not all African individuals, Africa recognizes homosexuality as a perversion. Unnatural. And the Bible is champion at this recognition. Yet even some of those who are not Christians they also recognize this distortion and loathe it, too. That is why we Africans speak against it and discourage it. Is that so hard to understand as understanding that a nation can have the type of economy that they wish to trade by.
Such perversion is not legalized in most African nations because it brings judgement upon nations. God’s judgement. Legalizing homosexuality is as legalizing stealing. Why do we not legalize thievery? Because it is morally wrong. Stealing and robbing others are evils that spark rage, hatred, and violate the right to have. Homosexuality, likewise, is morally wrong. And therefore unconstitutional in many beloved African nations.
God never created two persons in one. The Bible is champion at hitting that homosexuality is a sin. Even African cultures that are not Christian do not accept homosexual behaviours because such behaviours are a result of a mind depraved of the truth. A mind embracing distortion.
Are we going to trade morality for money? God forbid! For the love of money is the root of all evils. And many who have chased after money have died a quick death that is inevitable in the money-love-game. Our continent will be even more darker and filled with foolishness should we legalize that kind of behaviour. Just because a corrupt official commits corruption because he feels like he is born that way and cannot be forced to stop being corrupt does not mean we should now legalize corruption and allow corrupt officials to speak out freely for corruption.
Again I ask those nations that want Africa to embrace homosexuality, What is your source and guide of your moral values? The Bible? Surely not. If you had believed the Truth of the Bible you would have embraced the Truth that all homosexuals shall burn in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone. O, I do not forget that not everyone believes that. Nevertheless, the reality of the eternal things, which are more valuable, is not made void by your failure to see by faith and run with the Truth.
Are your moral value born out of secularism and false philosophical propagations, which you term scientific findings? No doubt about that. The secularist does not know the Truth. He wants to please everybody and sells the Truth and exchanges it for a lie so that he can have “more money.” What is the end of homosexuality? A culture that knows not the difference between the right and the left hand. A generation that dishonours mother and father. A generation that insults God. A generation that gulps sin like water. A generation that serves Satan in ignorance. A generation that does not know the true moral code and runs to and fro seeking such morality in vain philosophies and scientific findings and deceiving many.
Satan is on the mission to cause the whole world to worship him through cunning ways of governmental policies and international agreements that break down families and individuals.
But God is also at work. He is at work spreading the fragrance of the Truth of His Testimony, the Bible. And embedding that truth in the hearts of African leaders who are wise not to follow corrupt foreign governments and government officials. God’s work is greater and more rewarding than Satan’s.
Satan’s agenda is to use powerful nations to bully nations that are not as powerful as they are, and to coerce such nations into policies and decisions that serve not these nations but the selfish agenda of the powerful nations. Do you see such cunning deception?
Call it what you want to call it, but AFRICA SHALL FOREVER SAY NO TO HOMOSEXUALITY!
Further Scripture Reading:
1 Corinthians 6:9-11 ESV (9) Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, (10) nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. (11) And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
Revelation 21:8 ESV But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death."
2 Corinthians 12:9 ESV But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
