No Truce

I just watched (barely stomached) the Grammy's clip with Queen Latifah "marrying" several couples...some gay some not.  There was a lot of talk and lyrics about love, peace, harmony, all people ultimately believing in the same God...songs about "all of us not just some" etc.  People were waving, crying, dancing, cheering, and quite happy about it all.

Not me.

My heart broke.  And I was angry.  Angry at the devil for perpretrating such mass deception.  Angry at the church for being limp-wristed with Scripture.  Angry that Christian families allowed generations of children to grow up educated with such worldviews.  Angry that Christ and His Word was mocked, misinterpreted, and misrepresented.

Sad that so many people are totally blind to the truth and destined for an eternity without Christ...and sad that people who hold the biblical view will also be mocked, misinterpreted, and misrepresented.

Gracious Lord...please open their eyes.  Please pull off the scales.  Please help them to see You...the True You.  Please use the true church to preach your Gospel.  Please stop this tidal wave of wickeness in our Nation.  Please save...

But let me also say that I've declared NO TRUCE with the world.  None.  No white flags waving at the McLeod house.  I have no plans to capitulate, back down, compromise, back up, make a deal, run scared, move over, move out, just be quiet, become an appeaser, stop loving enough to state the truth, or stop believing that God can still, through the finished work of His Son, save those trapped in this mess of a mindset.

No truce.  Nope.  And not cozying up with the devil either.  May the Lord rebuke him.

As for me in my house, we will serve the Lord.
