Push Back! - Part 5

Chapter 5

Satan’s tactics have not changed since he first appeared to mankind as the serpent in the Garden of Eden. Yahweh had informed man of His will.

Genesis 2:16-17
And Yahweh God commanded the man, saying, "From any tree of the garden you may eat freely;  but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you shall surely die."

Satan urged Eve to question what Yahweh had said. The serpent then told the woman that what Yahweh had spoken was not true.

Genesis 3:4-5
And the serpent said to the woman, "You surely shall not die! For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."

Satan continues to invite mankind to question Yahweh’s words to this day. The serpent tells humanity that they will not perish if they practice those things that Yahweh declares to be evil. The serpent today appears in human form. In a parallel to the account in Genesis, his human disciples bear the emblem of the serpent.

Not all doctors are servants of Satan. There are many who perform a valuable service to mankind. Every day there are many people whose lives are saved, or improved, through the skill and knowledge of medical professionals. It is the very fact that much extraordinary good is done by the medical profession that has made it such a powerful vehicle for Satan to corrupt and employ for his evil purposes. Because mankind venerates the medical profession, according those with the title of “Doctor” an increased honor, the medical community has become a powerful tool in the hands of Satan. Because mankind is predisposed to give great weight to the words of those who are called “Doctors,” those individuals bearing this appellation are chosen by Satan to be the spokesmen of his campaign to debase and demoralize humanity.

Like Satan, the medical profession has a reputation for wisdom and knowledge. The prophet Ezekiel describes the fallen angel Lucifer in the following manner.

Ezekiel 28:12
"You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.”

The first mention of Satan in the Bible portrays him in the form of a serpent, a creature renowned for its subtlety, or cunning.

Genesis 3:1
Now the serpent was more subtle (cunning) than any beast of the field which Yahweh God had made.

The Bible reveals that great intelligence and wisdom do not necessarily correlate to righteousness, truth, or a benevolent attitude. Satan has used his great intellect and knowledge to wreak havoc among mankind and all creation. Yahshua declared Satan to be both a liar and a murderer. The Son of God further stated that Satan “comes only to kill, steal, and destroy.” Humanity errs greatly when it assumes that those with great knowledge or intellect will prove themselves to be noble and virtuous.

Many years ago I did a study on the caduceus, the symbol of the medical profession. There are some differences between depictions of this symbol. Some show one serpent entwined on a pole, while others show two serpents. There are wings present in some images of the caduceus, while being absent in others.  (Some refer to the single serpent on a pole without wings as “the staff of Asclepius.”) One thing I learned in my studies is that the word “serpent” comes from the same root as the word “sapient,” which means “wise.” Another thing I observed about this medical symbol relates to the serpent in the Garden. Before Yahweh cursed the serpent, the serpent was a winged creature that flew through the air.

Feathered Serpent

Genesis 3:14
So Yahweh God said to the serpent: “Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all cattle, and more than every beast of the field; On your belly you shall go, and you shall eat dust all the days of your life.”

The serpent did not crawl on its belly in its original form. You may ask, “How does one know that the serpent had wings?” This is revealed through a number of ways. Satan is described as “the serpent of old” and “the dragon.” Dragon’s are winged serpents.

Revelation 20:2
And he laid hold of the dragon, the serpent of old, who is the devil and Satan...

Satan is also described as “the prince of the power of the air” (Ephesians 2:2). It is logical that Satan would appear in the Garden in the form of an animal that flew through the air. Yahweh judged the winged serpent even as He had previously judged Lucifer when as an angel he had rebelled in heaven.

Ezekiel 28:17
“Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; You corrupted your wisdom by reason of your splendor. I cast you to the ground...”

The winged serpent was cast to the ground, cursed to ever crawl upon its belly. I share these things because the emblem adopted by the medical profession, despite the mythology surrounding Hermes, Asclepius, and other fables, bears stunning resemblance to the story of Satan’s temptation of mankind  in the Garden. There is a serpent, or serpents, entwined on a pole even as the serpent in the Garden appears in a tree. There are wings, yet the wings are detached from the serpent. The ball depicted at the top of some staffs even resembles the fruit that is a central part of the story.

It is ever the practice of Satan to present himself as one who is bearing good gifts for mankind, particularly gifts related to knowledge. The medical profession offers to mankind the gift of health. Their ability to offer this gift is directly related to knowledge. People go to a physician to receive medical advice. They want an authority to provide them with information and counsel they do not possess. The advice of a doctor is trusted, even in matters of life and death.
I have on a number of occasions shared that the mythological story of Prometheus is a story of Satan’s transgression and judgment by Yahweh. Yet, it is a story that is told from the twisted perspective of Satan. In the post titled A Rockefeller Christmas, I have shared the following.
The Rockefellers are Luciferians, championing this fallen angelic being as a bringer of wisdom and knowledge to mankind. Their esteem of Lucifer is revealed in the artwork found at Rockefeller Center.

Prometheus Bringing Sacred Fire to Man

The statue of Prometheus bringing fire down from heaven and giving it to mankind, is one of the most evident pieces of art found on the Rockefeller Center complex. It is a re-telling of the story of Lucifer who offered to mankind the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. An Internet website shares the following commentary on this statue found on the Rockefeller property.

This statue depicts Prometheus, a Titan of Greek mythology known for his great intelligence. He has however betrayed the god Zeus by stealing fire and giving it to mankind. He is credited to have taught mankind the arts of civilization such as writing, mathematics, agriculture, medicine, and science. Zeus then punished Prometheus for his crime by having him bound to a rock while a great eagle ate his liver every day only to have it grow back to be eaten again the next day.

Paul Manship’s sculpture featured in the Sunken Plaza of the Rockefeller Center portrays Prometheus holding the fire stolen from Zeus and gliding towards humanity. He lies inside a ring in which are outlined the signs of the Zodiac. Behind the statue is an inscription saying:

“Prometheus, teacher in every art, brought the fire that hath proved to mortals a means to mighty ends.”

Substitute the name Lucifer for Prometheus, and you will perceive the true substance of this monument. Lucifer was judged by God, but not for a benevolent act on behalf of mankind. Lucifer’s fall occurred prior to Adam and Eve’s residency in Eden. It is described by the prophet Isaiah

Isaiah 14:12-14
"How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, you who have weakened the nations! But you said in your heart, 'I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, and I will sit on the mount of assembly in the recesses of the north. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.'”

It is necessary to understand this history of Satan’s fall in order to properly perceive the symbolism present in the Christmas tree. It will perhaps come to some people’s minds that it is traditional to either place an angel, or a star, atop the Christmas tree. Though these symbols are commonly related back to the birth of Christ, this is merely the deceit of Satan. The star, and the angel, are  his own image. That the star and angels are commonly lighted relate to his name Lucifer which means “light bearer.”

The Rockefellers are far from being champions of Christianity. If the Christmas tree were a symbol of the birth of the Son of God, then why would the Rockefellers, servants of Lucifer, have established a tradition of placing one of the largest, most expensive Christmas trees in the world in a central location at Rockefeller Center? There are no other symbols of Christ present. However, there are a great many symbols relating to Lucifer. Note the image of Prometheus, and its proximity to the Christmas tree.

Rockefeller Christmas Tree w/Prometheus Carrying Fire

These two symbols are very much linked to one another. There is no disparity in the minds of Illuminists. To them the image of this fallen bringer of forbidden knowledge, and the lighted tree behind it, tell one and the same story.

Prometheus is said to have brought the knowledge of medicine and the healing arts to mankind. Not coincidentally, the medical profession throughout America has for generations been controlled and guided by the Rockefeller family. Their investment in medical schools, and their monopoly of the medical certification field, has led to the subverting of the medical profession, making it a slave to corporate interests, chief among them being pharmaceutical companies. Rockefeller influence has also allowed the medical profession to be used as a platform to shape cultural beliefs and values.

Despite the benefit that many derive from medical practitioners, there is a dark side to this field. Most Americans are unaware that the medical profession is the leading cause of death, sickness, and injury in the nation. Giving testimony before Congress, Lucian Leape, M.D. stated the following:

Findings from several studies of large numbers of hospitalized patients indicate that each year a million or more people are injured and as many as 100,000 die as a result of errors in their care. This makes medical care one of the leading causes of death, accounting for more lost lives than automobile accidents, breast cancer or AIDS.

The Washington Post reported the following:

The Washington Post reported the following: Medication Errors Harming Millions, Report Says
By Marc Kaufman
Washington Post Staff Writer
Friday, July 21, 2006

At least 1.5 million Americans are sickened, injured or killed each year by errors in prescribing, dispensing and taking medications, the influential Institute of Medicine concluded in a major report released yesterday.

Mistakes in giving drugs are so prevalent in hospitals that, on average, a patient will be subjected to a medication error each day he or she occupies a hospital bed, the report by a panel of experts said.

Additionally, there is the risk of becoming infected with an illness while at the hospital. Nosocomial infections are infections which are a result of treatment in a hospital, or a healthcare service unit, but secondary to the patient's original condition.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated roughly 1.7 million hospital-associated infections, from all types of bacteria combined, cause or contribute to 99,000 deaths each year. Other estimates indicate 10%, or 2 million, patients a year become infected, with the annual cost ranging from $4.5 billion to $11 billion. In the USA, the most frequent type of infection hospitalwide is urinary tract infection (36%), followed by surgical site infection (20%), and bloodstream infection and pneumonia (both 11%)

These statistics do not begin to address the harm done to humanity as the medical profession provides abortion services and counseling. In the United States alone 50-60 million babies have been murdered by members of the medical profession in the past 40 years. Furthermore, the medical profession has emotionally crippled and mentally maimed millions of children and adults as it has prescribed powerful mind altering drugs to them. The devastation done to society through means of this chemical sorcery is immense.

I do not use the phrase “chemical sorcery” lightly. The New Testament of the Bible was written in Greek. In the ancient Greek language the word translated into English as “sorcery” is “pharmakeia.” (See Revelation 18:23) This is the same Greek word from which we derive the English words “pharmacy,” “pharmacist,” and “pharmaceuticals.” Dr. Peter Breggin is a licensed psychiatrist who has spent more than 30 years warning Americans about the dangers of psychotropic drugs. Dr. Breggin is not a Christian, and I cannot recommend many of his views, but I highly recommend his expose of the dangers of psychiatric, mind altering drugs.

Dr. Breggin coined the phrase “medication spellbinding” to describe the effect that psychiatric drugs have on people. The word “spellbinding” is a reference to sorcery. It describes someone whose thoughts and actions are altered without the individual being able to recognize the manner, or degree, to which they have been altered. In the following video, Dr. Breggin describes medication spellbinding.

A database containing hundreds of examples of people who committed suicide, performed violent acts including multiple murders, or exhibited other signs of mania, while taking doctor prescribed psychotropic drugs can be found at the website SSRI Stories.

These facts describe some of the dark aspects of the medical profession. Far from being a benevolent community following the Hippocratic injunction to “first, do no harm,” millions are sickened, injured, or killed by medical practitioners every year. All of this damage to society is done by a medical profession that is raking in trillions of dollars annually in the United States alone. Medical care is the single largest expense category for the average American citizen, greater even than the cost of housing, or food.

Yet, an even greater harm is being committed by this profession that has fallen under the influence of Satan to such an astonishing degree. The medical community defines what is normal and abnormal behavior. They inform society about what is healthy and what is unhealthy. By using their authority and influence to declare homosexuality to be normal, and even desirable behavior, doctors and other healthcare practitioners are destroying the moral fabric of society. It is a more serious transgression to corrupt the souls of men than it is to inflict injury to their bodies.

Yesterday, a sister in Christ sent me a link to the following article.

Pediatricians should decorate office with pictures of gay couples
by Kirsten Andersen
WASHINGTON, D.C., August 1, 2013 (

If you’re a physician who sees children and adolescents on a regular basis, there is a lot you can do to encourage young patients and their families to view homosexuality as normal and healthy, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics.

The AAP recently issued an updated policy statement concerning homosexuality to its 60,000 members. The new guidelines say pediatricians should strive to “provide the context that being LGBTQ is normal, just different.”

According to the AAP, homosexuality “should not be considered abnormal.” While the organization acknowledges that “LGBTQ” teens as a whole engage in riskier behaviors and report higher rates of substance abuse, promiscuity, depression, self-harm, and even teen pregnancy, they blame that on “the presence of stigma from homophobia and heterosexism,” which “often leads to psychological distress [and] an increase in risk behaviors.”

As a result, the organization says doctors should make every effort to eliminate heterosexism in their practices.

Heterosexism is defined as “the societal expectation that heterosexuality is the expected norm and that, somehow, LGBTQ individuals are abnormal.” The AAP calls heterosexism “insidious and damaging.”

The organization recommends doctors display brochures and images featuring same-sex couples as well as straight ones, and affix rainbow decals throughout their offices to show they embrace homosexuality.

Doctors are urged to ensure that all office forms are gender neutral and do not presume heterosexuality; for example, forms should refer to “parent(s) or guardian(s),” not “mother and father.”

The group also warns doctors to never assume that a young patient is heterosexual. If a child tells her doctor she is having sex, the first question the AAP recommends physicians ask is, “Are you having sex with males, females, or both?”

According to the AAP, doctors should make it clear to their underage patients that they will never discuss their sex lives with their parents.

“Pediatricians and their office staff should encourage teenagers to feel comfortable talking with them about their emerging sexual identities and concerns about their sexual activities,” say the guidelines. “Care should be confidential, and it is not the role of the pediatrician to inform parents/guardians about the teenager’s sexual identity or behavior; doing so could expose the youth to harm.”

Additionally, the AAP recommends pediatricians take an active role in promoting acceptance of homosexual behavior in their schools and communities.

“Pediatricians should support or create gay-straight alliances at schools,” the guidelines state, “and support the development and enforcement of zero-tolerance policies for homophobic teasing, bullying, harassment, and violence.”

The group also recommends physicians keep a list of homosexual advocacy groups and their websites handy to give to children who express confusion about their sexuality.

There have been some physicians who have refused to serve as advocates for immoral government propaganda, but soon they will have no choice. With the passage of the Affordable Care Act, also known as “Obamacare,” all aspects of healthcare provision are firmly under the government’s control. Any doctor who refuses to act as an advocate of the homosexual lobby will soon find that they are no longer able to practice medicine.

Brothers and sisters, I share this information that you might be set free from any awe of men and women in white coats. The stereotypical white smock worn by a doctor is a subtlety of the enemy. The Bible describes the saints who are cleansed and made righteous as being adorned in white raiment (Revelation 3:5; 3:18; 4:4; etc.). The apostle Paul informs us:

II Corinthians 11:14-15
Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their deeds.

Do not buy into the image presented of Doctors arrayed in white garments, with documents upon their office walls attesting to their great learning. Such things qualify no man to overturn the righteous judgments of God. “Men, professing themselves to be wise, have become as fools” (Romans 1:22).

There is no science behind the medical claims that homosexuality is “normal” and “safe” behavior. There is only hubris. In their pride, men and women who are esteemed in the eyes of society are offering to mankind words that appear wise. They are calling that which Yahweh declared evil to be good. Do not take a bite from the forbidden fruit. A profession that has brought death to tens of millions of babies in the womb, and has caused the death of millions who were enjoying life, will compound their guilt as they now lead multitudes into lives of gross immorality. Do not bestow honor to those undeserving of honor.

Push Back! - Part 4

Chapter 4

Gay, Proud, & Christian?

The apostle Paul wrote:

II Timothy 3:13
But evil men and seducers will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.

There are seducers among the churches today. Their apostate teachings are growing worse and worse. A generation ago there were men and women in the church who were advocating that divorce and remarriage be normalized, that divorce no longer be declared to be a transgression of the will of Yahweh. Forty years later the Lutheran, Presbyterian, and Episcopalian churches in America have embraced homosexuality as a normal lifestyle. They have even adopted policies that permit non-celibate homosexuals to be ordained as ministers. When sin is not resisted, it increases.

A year ago I wrote about an event that occurred in America’s Midwest that contained a striking message from Yahweh. Following is an excerpt from that post:

An event took place in the upper Midwest of the U.S.A. that I believe relates to the message the Father is bringing forth. What appeared to be a relatively benign storm suddenly became severe, but it is the specific damage that it caused that arrests the attention.

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America was holding a convention at the Minneapolis Convention Center. The Central Lutheran Church is located nearby and was serving as a preparation area to provide meals to convention attendees. Suddenly the sky turned dark and a fierce wind arose and scattered the tables and chairs outside the church.

Sudden Destruction at the Central Lutheran Church

I am reminded of Christ, when He entered the Temple in Jerusalem and overturned the tables of the merchants and money changers. The Lutheran Church is the same church that George Tiller, America’s largest abortion provider, was a member of until a gunman entered the Lutheran Church in Kansas City and shot him dead. Not only was George Tiller a member, but he was a deacon in the Lutheran church.

This storm also damaged an independent music store in Minneapolis that bore the very unusual name the Electric Fetus. The windows were blown out and the roof collapsed while stores on either side of it remained undamaged.

Electric Fetus

I am persuaded that the Lord is declaring in this event that there are two core issues for which He is bringing swift judgment to the Lutheran Church. One is for her tolerance, and even support of, abortion. The other is for her present actions to sanction homosexuality within the church. The following item revealing the agenda of this Lutheran convention was found on the Catholic News Agency site.

Minneapolis, Minn., Aug 18, 2009 / 11:38 pm (CNA).-
The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) is considering a proposal that would allow members in homosexual relationships to serve as clergy. It has denied a motion to require a higher proportion of votes for the proposal to pass.

It is suspected that a tornado was spawned from the thunderstorm moving through Minneapolis. It struck the church at approximately 2:00 P.M., the very time the convention was scheduled to begin consideration of the proposed Social Statement on Human Sexuality. This statement included comments advocating the acceptance of homosexuality as a normal lifestyle.

Not only did the storm overturn the tables outside Central Lutheran Church, it also damaged the church’s steeple, leaving the cross atop it dangling upside down. The inverted cross is a symbol used by the Satanic Church.

The convention passed the Social Statement on Human Sexuality, but before it was passed various amendments were recommended.

including one that sought to replace a section of the social statement about "lifelong monogamous same-gender relationships” with one that asserts the "practice of homosexual erotic behavior as contrary to God's intent."

In a 667-303 vote, the assembly opted against the aforementioned change, following the recommendation of an ad hoc committee that advised against the amendment’s adoption since the position articulated implies "a consensus that no longer exists."

There is not even a consensus among this apostate religious organization that the practice of homosexual erotic behavior is contrary to God’s intent.

A further symbolic note is that this same storm system struck a town called Loami. This is a name used prophetically in the Scriptures, and the understanding is very clear.

Hosea 1:9
And Yahweh said, "Name him Lo-ammi, for you are not My people and I am not your God."

People of God, these are very serious matters. Judgment must begin at the house of God. He is even now making a division among those who are His righteous servants and those who are not.
[End Excerpt]

A growing number of Christians are finding it necessary to leave the churches of which they have been a part. Some have grown up in a particular church or denomination, but are finding that there is such a falling away from truth and righteousness that their consciences will not permit them to continue in association with them any longer. The words of Revelation are being fulfilled in this hour.

Revelation 18:4-5
And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her [Babylon, the Harlot Church], my people, that you may not participate in her sins and that you may not receive of her plagues; for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.”

I would impress upon you the seriousness of what is occurring in this hour. Do NOT think it is a harmless thing to agree with the forces of ungodliness who wish for all the world to accept homosexuality as a normal lifestyle. If you refuse to call sin sin, then you have professed God to be a liar and the truth is not in you. Yahweh sent a message to the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America. His message is “You are NOT My people, and I am NOT your God!”

Who then is the god of this apostate church? The upside down cross is a symbol of anti-Christ. Is it not evident that when a church rejects the judgment of Yahweh regarding the definition of a sin that He has described as “an abomination,” and they vote to appoint practicing sodomites as church leaders, that they are being guided by Satan, the god of this world?

II Corinthians 4:3-4
And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving, that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

After exhorting the saints to have nothing to do with immorality and impurity, the apostle Paul declared:

Ephesians 5:6-12
Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not be partakers with them; for you were formerly darkness, but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. And do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them; for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret.

I am compelled to offer an apology for writing about such shameful things. I do not enjoy doing so. Yet, there is such great darkness entering into the church, and so many Christians are being swept away in the flood of deception and seducing words, that there is a need to confront this tide of wickedness and call it what it is.

I can sense the passion in Paul’s words when he writes, “Let no one deceive you!” Yet, the church, along with the world, is being deceived. A growing number of denominations, churches, ministers, and individual Christians are finding that it is increasingly difficult to live peacefully in a darkening world while holding forth the light of truth. Wanting to avoid persecution, and desiring to be accepted by the world, Christians are exchanging light for darkness.

Paul wrote that seducers would grow worse and worse. Sin never remains in a condition of stasis. When the church does not apply an equal, or greater force, in its effort to stem the tide of sin, sin will increase and eventually overwhelm the people of God. Many churches today have removed all focus on sin. They have become “seeker friendly” congregations that do not wish to offend anyone. There is no effort at all being exerted to “push back” against the sin that is assailing society and entering into the church. By ceasing to guard against the encroachment of sin, the church is allowing even gross abominations to enter into their midst.

As vile and detestable as homosexual behavior is, sin will seek to manifest in ever increasing ways. Yesterday a sister posted a comment on the Parables Blog and provided a link to the following article.

Pedophiles want same rights as homosexuals
by Jack Minor

Using the same tactics used by “gay” rights activists, pedophiles have begun to seek similar status arguing their desire for children is a sexual orientation no different than heterosexual or homosexuals.

Critics of the homosexual lifestyle have long claimed that once it became acceptable to identify homosexuality as simply an “alternative lifestyle” or sexual orientation, logically nothing would be off limits. “Gay” advocates have taken offense at such a position insisting this would never happen. However, psychiatrists are now beginning to advocate redefining pedophilia in the same way homosexuality was redefined several years ago.

In 1973 the American Psychiatric Association declassified homosexuality from its list of mental disorders. A group of psychiatrists with B4U-Act recently held a symposium proposing a new definition of pedophilia in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Health Disorders of the APA.

B4U-Act  calls pedophiles “minor-attracted people.” The organization’s website states its purpose is to, “help mental health professionals learn more about attraction to minors and to consider the effects of stereotyping, stigma and fear.”

In 1998 The APA issued a report claiming “that the ‘negative potential’ of adult sex with children was ‘overstated’ and that ‘the vast majority of both men and women reported no negative sexual effects from  childhood sexual abuse experiences.”

Pedophilia has already been granted protected status by the Federal Government. The Matthew Shephard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act lists “sexual orientation” as a protected class; however, it does not define the term.

Republicans attempted to add an amendment specifying that “pedophilia is not covered as an orientation;” however, the amendment was defeated by Democrats. Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fl) stated that all alternative sexual lifestyles should be protected under the law. “This bill addresses our resolve to end violence based on prejudice and to guarantee that all Americans, regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability or all of these ‘philias’ and fetishes and ‘isms’ that were put forward need not live in fear because of who they are. I urge my colleagues to vote in favor of this rule...”

Earlier this year two psychologists in Canada declared that pedophilia is a sexual orientation just like homosexuality or heterosexuality.

Van Gijseghem, psychologist and retired professor of the University of Montreal, told members of Parliament, “Pedophiles are not simply people who commit a small offense from time to time but rather are grappling with what is equivalent to a sexual orientation just like another individual may be grappling with heterosexuality or even homosexuality.”

He went on to say, “True pedophiles have an exclusive preference for children, which is the same as having a sexual orientation. You cannot change this person’s sexual orientation. He may, however, remain abstinent...”

Dr. Quinsey, professor emeritus of psychology at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, agreed with Van Gijseghem. Quinsey said pedophiles’ sexual interests prefer children and, “There is no evidence that this sort of preference can be changed through treatment or through anything else.”

In July, 2010 Harvard health Publications said, “Pedophilia is a sexual orientation and unlikely to change. Treatment aims to enable someone to resist acting on his sexual urges.”

Linda Harvey, of Mission America, said the push for pedophiles to have equal rights will become more and more common as LGBT groups continue to assert themselves. “It’s all part of a plan to introduce sex to children at younger and younger ages; to convince them that normal friendship is actually a sexual attraction.”

Milton Diamond, a University of Hawaii professor and director of the Pacific Center for Sex and Society, stated that child pornography could be beneficial to society because, “Potential sex offenders use child pornography as a substitute for sex against children...”

The IASHS lists, on its website, a list of “basic sexual rights” that includes “the right to engage in sexual acts or activities of any kind whatsoever, providing they do not involve nonconsensual acts, violence, constraint, coercion or fraud.” Another right is to, “be free of persecution, condemnation, discrimination, or societal intervention in private sexual behavior” and “the freedom of any sexual thought, fantasy or desire.” The organization also says that no one should be “disadvantaged because of  age.”

Recently, news articles have reported on the increase of the practice of bestiality (having sexual intercourse with animals.) This is another profane act that Yahweh condemns.

Exodus 22:19
Whoever lies with an animal shall surely be put to death.

Leviticus 18:23-24
You shall not have intercourse with any animal to be defiled with it, nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it; it is a perversion. Do not defile yourselves by any of these things; for by all these the nations which I am casting out before you have become defiled.

Leviticus 20:15-16
If there is a man who lies with an animal, he shall surely be put to death; you shall also kill the animal. If there is a woman who approaches any animal to mate with it, you shall kill the woman and the animal; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them.

Do you think such behavior is so wicked that it will never become commonplace or made legal? In 1969, the same year that homosexuality was removed from the criminal code in Germany, bestiality was also legalized. People who practice bestiality are called zoophiles. There is a zoophile lobbying group that advocates for human/animal intercourse rights in the same way that the homosexuals have lobbied for the right to unrestricted same sex intercourse. This zoophile group, known as ZETA, claims that there are 100,000 zoophiles in Germany. Farmers have aroused attention as this deviant behavior has become so common that their livestock is frequently traumatized by men who sneak into barns, or fields at night, to ravish the sheep and other animals. Animal rights groups are alarmed that dogs, and even cats, are being adopted from shelters for the purpose of exploiting them sexually.

Nor is this behavior simply an European problem. The American Family Association, a Christian political action organization, asked for a boycott of Sears last year because this American retailer was selling sexually erotic books and materials on their website. Two of the books that the AFA listed were “Dearest Pet, On Bestiality” and “Bestiality and Zoophilia: Sexual Relations with Animals.” This latter book is reportedly a “how-to” manual for those wanting to have sexual relations with animals. Sears withdrew this material from their website for a period of two months, but has since re-listed it.

In the United States, there are no federal laws banning sex between humans and animals. The only federal law to prohibit zoophilia was found in the Uniform Code of Military Justice in the United States Armed Forces, which banned sodomy. Now that sodomy has been declared legal, bestiality is also unrestricted by the federal government. Traditionally, it has been left to the individual states to determine what is declared to be indecent, immoral, and harmful sexual behavior. Almost all of the states have had laws on the books banning sexual intercourse with animals, even as they had laws prohibiting sodomy. In recent years a trend has developed among the states to repeal existing statutes that criminalized zoophilia. Bestiality is now legal in the following states:

Alabama - Bestiality decriminalized in 1980
Hawaii - Bestiality decriminalized in 1973
Kentucky - No laws were ever enacted to criminalize this behavior.
Montana - Bestiality decriminalized in 1997
Nevada - Bestiality decriminalized in 1993
New Hampshire - Bestiality decriminalized in 1975
New Jersey - Bestiality decriminalized in 1979
New Mexico - Bestiality decriminalized in 1975
Ohio - Bestiality decriminalized in 1974

The Bible declares that when Christ returns the world will be in a condition similar to the days of Noah. Of that day we are told:

Genesis 6:5
Then Yahweh saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

Restraint is being removed from the earth. Darkness is increasing over the nations. Gross darkness is taking hold of the people. To its great shame, the church is refusing to take a stand, but has adopted a policy of appeasement instead. The people of God are called to be a light unto the world, to hold forth the standard of Yahweh’s righteousness and holiness. To those churches, denominations, and Christians who turn away from righteousness and declare sexually deviant behavior to be normal and acceptable, Yahweh will declare, “You are NOT My people. Depart from Me. I never knew you.”

Push Back! - Part 3

Chapter 3

There can be no shift in the morals of a society without first redefining right and wrong. From the time the first pilgrims landed on America’s shores, until the recent generation, homosexuality has been viewed by society as deviant, and destructive, sexual behavior. The founding father’s of America viewed homosexuality as a great sin. George Washington instituted court martial proceedings against an officer of the Continental Army for the crime of sodomy. Thomas Jefferson introduced legislation in his home state of Virginia that would have punished homosexuals by requiring them to be castrated. If you have read the series titled Dragon Flood, you will realize that neither of these men were Christians, yet they acknowledged Yahweh’s judgment of homosexuality as abominable and perverse behavior to be right.

In 1828, when Noah Webster published Webster’s Dictionary, the term “Sodomy” was used to refer to homosexual behavior. Webster’s Dictionary not only was considered authoritative on its word definitions, but it reflected the moral underpinnings of the nation. The entry for the word “Sodomy,” although brief, was quite specific.

“Sodomy: A crime against nature.”

The 1833 Encyclopedia Britannica, describing the moral influence of Christianity upon Roman society, states:

“The nameless crime, which was the disgrace of Greek and Roman civilization was made punishable by death.”

With these words, the editors of the world’s most renowned encyclopedia declared that homosexuality was considered in their day to be a disgrace to great civilizations.

In 1952, the American Psychiatric Association listed homosexuality in the DSM (Diagnostics and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) as a “sociopathic personality disturbance.”

The word “sociopathic” is defined as “a person with a psychopathic personality whose behavior is antisocial, often criminal, and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience.” This definition of homosexuality as a mental disorder remained until the DSM II was revised in 1973, the same year that the U.S. Supreme Court in the case known as Roe v. Wade, redefined abortion, rejecting its status as a crime, and declaring it to be a woman’s right. America has now experienced forty years where the sins of murder of the unborn, and homosexuality, have been defined as “normal.” The nation has experienced a generation in which behavior that Yahweh describes as abominable sin has been given protected status, and declared to be a “human right.” The terrible fruit of this moral collapse is readily observed throughout American society.

The transformation of moral values has been incremental, but quite swift. The first step in normalizing homosexual behavior was to remove the stigma of it being a heinous moral failure. This was accomplished when the medical profession in 1952 defined homosexuality as a mental disorder. Many who were homosexuals viewed this as a great leap forward. No longer were they judged to be morally depraved. It was far less censorious to be labeled as “sick’ than it was to bear the stigma of being morally debauched.

For more than two centuries American society had viewed homosexuality as a gross moral transgression. It was “the crime not to be named,” a reference to the following Scripture.

Ephesians 5:3-12
But do not let immorality or any impurity or greed even be named among you, as is proper among saints... For this you know with certainty, that no immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not be partakers with them... for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret.

How has a nation moved from viewing homosexual behavior as something disgraceful, a shameful thing that decent folk would could not speak of without embarrassment, to openly celebrating it? This shift in societal values is NOT the result of some new scientific discovery. It is NOT the result of mankind coming out of darkness into the light of truth. Society is becoming more depraved, more sensual, increasingly selfish, with an exponential increase in crimes committed against one’s neighbors. Satan is a great deceiver, and he has played upon man’s irrational honor for those who are educated in the institutions of learning and bear the title of “Doctor.” Satan has especially used the “Doctors” of the psychiatric field, those who study the mind and human behavior, to alter societal views of deviant sexual behavior.

In 1973, Dr. John P. Spiegel, was president-elect of the American Psychiatric Association. It was under his watch that the psychiatric profession’s standard manual of practice, the DSM, was altered to remove homosexuality from the list of deviant sexual disorders. This change was NOT the result of new research that demonstrated that homosexuality is normal and harmless. There was a group of psychiatrists among the leadership of the APA (American Psychiatric Association) who were practicing sodomites. They sought to use their positions in this organization to change society’s view of their own depraved behavior. This group of sodomite psychiatrists were informally referred to as the GayPA.

Alix Spiegel is the granddaughter of Dr. John Spiegel. She is a correspondent for National Public Radio. Alix Spiegel narrated an episode for American Life, a popular program on NPR, where she spoke about her grandfather’s involvement in altering the American medical profession’s definition of homosexual behavior. She revealed that his “motives were not simply those of a dedicated psychiatrist and champion of human rights.” She explains how her family discovered in 1981 after her grandmother had died, that her grandfather was a homosexual.

The family went on vacation to the Bahamas to celebrate my grandfather’s 70th birthday. I remember it well. I also remember my grandfather stepping out from his beach front bungalow on that first day followed by a small well-built man, a man that later during dinner my grandfather introduced to a shocked family as his lover, David. David was the first of a long line of very young men that my grandfather took up with after my grandmother’s death. It turned out that my grandfather had had gay lovers throughout his life, had even told his wife-to-be that he was homosexual, two weeks before their wedding. And so in 1981 the story that my family told about the definition in the DSM changed dramatically.

American society has been hoodwinked. A cabal of sodomites, masquerading as wise doctors of the pseudo-scientific field of psychiatry, have redefined homosexual behavior to justify their own moral deviancy. Consider for a moment the gross immorality of this man who served as president of the American Psychiatric Association. He entered into a marriage union with a woman that he never intended to treat with fidelity. Throughout his marriage he was engaging in sodomy with a series of male lovers.

DSM Manuals

This man who held traditional marriage in contempt, along with a number of other sodomites who hid their deviant behavior from their peers, were able to wrest control of that part of the APA tasked with defining mental illness. The task of defining sexually deviant behavior was given into the hands of men who were practicing sexual deviancy. The great lie that many have embraced is that there is a scientific basis to support the redefining of homosexuality from sociopathic behavior to that which is normal and healthy behavior. The truth is that the men who authorized the changes to this medical manual of great influence were deeply biased in their actions. They had a private agenda, which was to remove the stigma of moral depravity from the unnatural behavior in which they were engaging.

Contrast these medical manuals, that have not only changed their definitions of sexually deviant behavior, but which radically contradict their earlier definitions of homosexual behavior, with the Bible. In a short span of time men redefined homosexuality from behavior that is morally depraved, to a mental illness, to normal behavior. The first five books of Moses were written 3,500 years ago. In these Scriptures we are told by Yahweh that homosexuality is an abomination in His sight.

Leviticus 18:22
You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.

Leviticus 20:13
If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act...

1,500 years after Moses recorded these words, Yahweh inspired men to write the New Testament of the Scriptures. In 1,500 years, the opinion of God had not changed. The apostle Paul wrote the following:

Romans 1:26-27
For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

I Corinthians 6:9-10
Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

I Timothy 1:9-10
Law is not made for a righteous man, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers  and immoral men and homosexuals...

When the 1973 revision of the DSM came out, the entry for homosexuality was completely removed. In its place there was an entry for Ego-Dystonic Homosexuality. This was a special type of homosexuality that described people who were uncomfortable with their same sex attraction, and wanted to be cured of it. Many psychiatrists at the time were actively engaged in counseling homosexuals who wanted to change their behavior. By including this definition for a Ego-Dystonic Homosexuality, the sodomite leadership of the APA stemmed what would have surely been a great outcry if they had at once done away with all therapy for homosexuals. In 1987, even this more limited description of homosexual dysfunction was removed from the manual. In the episode 81 Words, from the American Life program, Alix Spiegel shares the following:

Today there is no entry in the DSM on homosexuality. No entry at all. In 1987, the 237 words that Robert Spitzer wrote about ego-dystonic homosexuality were quietly removed. Meanwhile, the APA turned itself upside down. In 1970, 90% of the American Psychiatric Association believed that homosexuality was a pathology. Today, 90% believe that it's a normal variant of sexual behavior. No more pathological than something like left-handedness.

In fact, it's now considered unethical to treat homosexuality. And any psychiatrist who attempts to change the sexual orientation of his patient can face professional censure. If a gay person finds his sexual preference disturbing, if he's interested in becoming heterosexual-- and there are many people who fit this description-- the APA guidelines suggest that the therapist counsel his patient that change is impossible. He must learn to accept, embrace even.
[Source: Ibid]

This statement reveals the extreme pro-homosexual bias of the APA’s ruling members. They will not permit anyone to suggest that it is possible to change from being a homosexual to a normal sexual orientation. The cruelty and wickedness of the position adopted by the APA is seen in that there are souls who are tortured by their consciences, who are seeking to depart from a form of behavior that they intuitively know to be against nature, yet they are met with a stone wall of lies serving a pro-homosexual agenda by an organization that pretends to exist for the benefit of mankind.

I recommend reading the entire transcript for the program 81 Words. Although Alix Spiegel is pro-homosexual in her views, her insider’s view of what went on at the APA to change the clinical definition of homosexual behavior is enlightening. The majority of the 18,000 psychiatrists in this association did not support the changes. Following is the reaction of one psychiatrist to the changes that were made.

Charles Socarides: I said holy [BLEEP]. They're changing the rules. If there's anything you couldn't change in this world it would be the relationship between a male and a female. They go together. They go together, through all of evolution, right up the animal kingdom, right to man. And now they're saying, it's just as natural to mate with the same sex as it is with the opposite sex. What will psychiatry think? What will medicine think? What will pediatric think? They will think we've gone insane.
[Source: Ibid]

It is insanity to suggest that homosexual behavior is both normal and healthy. Yet this is the position that many are promoting in this hour. Massive amounts of propaganda is being spewed forth from government, television, movies, newspapers, radio, music, and a myriad of non-governmental, pro-homosexual organizations. The apostle Paul summed up this activity well in the following words:

Romans 1:32
Who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

Alix Spiegel provides this additional narrative on one psychiatrist who believes homosexuality is abnormal, deviant behavior.

Dr. Socarides continues to teach and practice psychiatry, but his views on homosexuality have damaged his position in his profession. He has been violently criticized by his peers. And his book on homosexuality, called “A Freedom Too Far,” was refused by over 40 publishers. In the end, he had to print the book himself. But Socarides remains convinced that he has chosen the right path and claims that far from destroying his career, his views on homosexuality have actually helped his practice.

Charles Socarides: Oh, it's made it boom.

Alix Spiegel: It made it boom?

Charles Socarides: Boom, sure. Sure. I'm known both as the devil of the radical gay movement, and I'm also known as the savior of many homosexual's lives. Last week, I saw somebody with his son of 16, who said they'd taken the boy to six psychiatrists in New Jersey and every one of them said, get out of here. Or told him that he can't be helped. And that's happened over and over again.

I've had a lot of terrible words against me. But my patients will tell you differently. Any one of them.
[Source: Ibid]

The fact that this psychiatrist, who has treated more homosexuals than the majority of his peers, could not get a book on the subject published, shows that there are men and women across a range of industries who have conspired to silence any opposition to homosexual behavior. The American public is being presented with one view only. It is a view that would normalize and promote the spread of homosexual behavior.

Edward Bernays, the father of American propaganda, recognized the irrational honor that Americans give toward those who bear the title of “Doctor.” Bernays employed the knowledge of this fact by enlisting doctors to sell any product, or idea, to the masses that he desired.

Despite the fact that cigarette smoking is the cause of lung cancer, emphysema, high blood pressure, and a host of other maladies, this did not prevent doctors with a personal interest from advocating the “benefits” and “healthiness” of cigarette smoking. Offer a man who loves money a substantial financial reward, and he will betray the Hippocratic oath to “do no harm.” Millions of people worldwide have died horrendous deaths, gasping for breath, experiencing a sense of suffocating, being in terror of dying, because doctors told them for decades that cigarette smoking was healthy.

There was no science behind the claims that cigarette smoking is harmless, even as there is no science to support the contention that homosexual behavior is normal and harmless. People need to discern that adding the title “Doctor” to a person’s name is no guarantee that the individual’s advice will be either accurate, helpful, or harmless. No man’s opinion should be beyond scrutiny. Those who fail to exercise due diligence in testing what they are being told by “professionals” and “experts” will suffer the consequences of their gullibility.

The National Public Radio program 81 Words, is divided into two parts. Ira Glass, the host of the show, introduced the second act of this presentation with the following words.

Ira Glass: Coming up, the scientific evidence that homosexuals might not be sick. 

Despite the promise of “scientific evidence,” Alix Spiegel shares that there were only two studies that existed that supported the GayPA’s normalization of homosexual behavior. Both studies are highly suspect. One was a study done by Evelyn Hooker. The other is the infamous Kinsey Report Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, published in 1948. Alix Spiegel provides the following narrative.

Aside from Hooker, psychiatrists who wanted to change the DSM really only had one other scientific study on their side: Alfred Kinsey's famous 1948 sex survey, which found that a whopping 37% of all men had had physical contact to the point of orgasm with other men. A finding which, besides shocking the hell out of 63% of the American public, seemed to suggest that homosexual acts were too common to be considered a disease.
[Source: Ibid]

If you are shocked by the claim that 37% of men in the 1940s in America had experienced sexual orgasm with another male, you should be. Kinsey’s report came under immediate criticism regarding its methodology.

Academic criticisms were made pertaining to sample selection and sample bias in the reports' methodology. Two main problems cited were that significant portions of the samples come from prison populations and male prostitutes, and that people who volunteer to be interviewed about taboo subject are likely to suffer from the problem of self-selection. Both undermine the usefulness of the sample in terms of determining the tendencies of the overall population. In 1948, the same year as the original publication, a committee of the American Statistical Association, including notable statisticians such as John Tukey, condemned the sampling procedure. Tukey was perhaps the most vocal critic, saying, "A random selection of three people would have been better than a group of 300 chosen by Mr. Kinsey." Criticism principally revolved around the over-representation of some groups in the sample: 25% were, or had been, prison inmates, and 5% were male prostitutes.[citation needed] Psychologist Abraham Maslow asserted that Kinsey did not consider "volunteer bias." The data represented only those volunteering to participate in discussion of taboo topics. Most Americans were reluctant to discuss the intimate details of their sex lives even with their spouses and close friends. Before the publication of Kinsey's reports, Maslow tested Kinsey's volunteers for bias. He concluded that Kinsey's sample was unrepresentative of the general population.

There is no mention in the NPR program that there was any criticism of the Kinsey report. Instead, we find this statement immediately following the mention of it.

In spite of all this work, psychiatry continued to maintain that the homos were sick and steadfastly refused to reevaluate the DSM.
[Source: Ibid]

The narrator has admitted that there were only two reports suggesting that homosexuality was normal. One was a very small study of 30 homosexuals conducted by Evelyn Hooker. These people were friends and associates of Evelyn Hooker. They were all young men, all of whom were either students at UCLA, or friends of students who attended this California university. Evelyn Hooker specifically chose homosexual males from her study that had never been in prison, never gone to therapy, never been a patient at a mental hospital, and had never been disciplined by the military for homosexual behavior. Yet, Evelyn Hooker proposed to use this small sampling of carefully selected homosexual men for her study to demonstrate that homosexual men were normal, healthy individuals who posed no threat to society.

Evelyn Hooker subjected an equal number of homosexual and heterosexual males to a battery of psychiatric tests, including the Rorschach Test, also known as the ink blot test. Evelyn showed the results of her testing to three psychiatrists who did not know the identities of the men, or their sexual behavior, asking them to try to determine which men were homosexual. The results were not surprising. The psychiatrists determined that two thirds of each group exhibited characteristics of well adjusted, normally functioning human beings.

There are so many areas in which to criticize this study by Evelyn Hooker, that it is astonishing to realize that hers is one of the two primary studies used to justify the reclassification of homosexuality as normal and healthy behavior. She purposely excluded all homosexual males that had been in therapy, which would include homosexuals who did not view their sexual behavior to be normal or healthy. She excluded all who had been in mental hospitals, individuals whom others viewed to be unhealthy, and suffering from mental disorder. She excluded those who had been arrested or imprisoned either in society or in the military, which would once again have been symptomatic of sociopathic behavior. All of the homosexual men came from a specific societal group of educated men. They were all around the same age. This was not by any measure a random, or diverse sampling of homosexual males. Even as the Kinsey report was criticized for being unrepresentative of the general population, Ms. Hooker’s report was unrepresentative of homosexual males.

One must also question the viability of determining who is normal and who is abnormal by subjecting them to interpretive tests such as the ink blot test. Such testing is highly subjective and its accuracy is dubious. This study by Evelyn Hooker was deficient in many ways. To arrive at the conclusions she set forth would require a far larger number of participants from across a wide spectrum of backgrounds, ages, and life experiences. It should be a long term study, rather than a momentary “snapshot” of one moment in a person’s life. Those taking such tests, and understanding the purpose of it, would also be tempted to be dishonest in their answers, seeking to provide responses that would cause the tester to view them as healthy and normal, insuring that homosexuality be viewed favorably. The clinical environment of this small study would not necessarily lend itself to capturing an honest, unbiased view of the individuals. Who hasn’t given another person an answer that was intended to cause the questioner to view them more favorably? Perhaps an individual should sit in on a few job interviews to see how often this occurs. This is a basic tendency of human nature and it leads to skewed results in examinations, including those administered by psychiatrists.

One must also question the objectivity of these two individuals who were behind these studies. Evelyn Hooker was not an impartial clinician. Her chosen companions while at UCLA were homosexuals. Her friendship with these homosexual men predisposed her to seek to provide evidence that there was nothing abnormal about them. Dr. Alfred Kinsey, the author of the Kinsey reports on human sexuality, was an even less impartial source. Dr. Wiker, co-author of the book  Architects of the Culture of Death, provided the following information on Dr. Kinsey in an interview with a Catholic University website.

Wiker: The sole purpose of Kinsey’s various studies was to legitimate any and every kind of sexual activity, from adultery and homosexuality, to pedophilia and bestiality. Kinsey himself was, from his very early youth, a sado-masochistic homosexual. His father, Alfred Sr., was a staunch, no-nonsense Protestant who ran the household with an iron fist. Of course, young Alfred hid his sexual perversions from his father, and the contradiction between his outward moral uprightness and his inward, hidden sexual distortions caused him great anxiety. But by the time he went to graduate school, Kinsey was determined to use science to eliminate this anxiety. How? By eliminating the distinction between natural and unnatural in regard to sexuality. He wanted to use science to "prove" that every sexual desire, no matter how bizarre, is natural.

Again we see that it was a practicing sodomite that sought to legitimize a behavior that Yahweh condemns. Tragically, Christians have been giving honor to those who deserve no honor. Many Christians are as much in awe of the claims of “science,” and its flawed practitioners, as are the unregenerate members of society. This was observed recently when the president of Exodus International parroted the same lines as the enemies of Yahweh when he abandoned his homosexual deliverance ministry by declaring that he no longer believes it is possible for a homosexual to be set free from his/her same sex attraction. The error of Exodus International was present from its inception as it sought to use the teachings of psychiatry in its therapy sessions with homosexuals. Alan Chambers apologized for laying the blame for homosexuality on the parents. Before declaring homosexuality to be both normal and irreversible, the APA believed that homosexuality was caused by "close-binding" mothers, which is over-protective women who made their children weak and feminine, and "detached, rejecting fathers."

Wiker goes on to explain the following about Alfred Kinsey.

Wiker: First and foremost, Kinsey’s personal bias. As biographer James Jones points out, Kinsey long believed that human beings were naturally "pansexual," that is, they had no natural goal–such as heterosexuality–but if left to themselves in a kind of state of nature would satisfy their sexual desires in whatever way happened to strike their fancies. Society restricts this natural pansexuality, causing individuals all kinds of anxiety. Kinsey therefore believed that while we assume that people follow society’s sexual rules, they secretly want to act upon their natural pansexuality, and very often do. This deviation from social sexual rules–be it in adultery or homosexuality–is really not a deviation at all, but our natural, pansexuality reasserting itself.

Kinsey’s mode of argument was then quite simple, and the logic of it went something like this: we assume that X is abnormal; but we have found out that X occurs all the time; what occurs all the time cannot be abnormal, therefore it must really be normal; what is normal is also natural, and what is natural cannot be wrong.
[Source: Ibid]

In the previous post it was observed that this is the same logic being employed by the U.N. in its Born Free and Equal campaign. It is asserted that anything that is widespread in its occurrence must be natural, and if it is natural it must be normal. The message that people should embrace the evil tendencies in themselves as normal and acceptable, is being sold to America’s youth through animated movies such as Wreck-It Ralph.

Mankind, recognizing that they have evil tendencies within them, are being told to abandon the effort to suppress these impulses. They are being told that they need to be true to themselves by embracing the dark desires within them. This is leading to an explosion of moral deviancy as society no longer seeks to curb the harmful impulses of the flesh. The U.N., President Obama, and other homosexual advocates are seeking to portray homosexuals as healthy, wholesome individuals. They hide from view the truth about this sordid lifestyle, and those who practice it.

In talking about the recent movie on the life of Alfred Kinsey, whose character is played by Liam Neesen, Dr. Wiker asks the following about how accurately this man will be portrayed. (Warning! Graphic material.)

Will they show Kinsey talking his wife into having sex with his homosexual bedmates? And then there’s the little matter of the pornographic films. Kinsey’s Institute spent much of its time filming its staff of "scientists," including Kinsey, having homosexual sex with each other, masturbating, and engaging in sado-masochistic acts. Kinsey’s wife Clara was pushed–for the sake of science, of course–into "acting" in these sexually sordid films. Will they show his wife having to engage in every manner of sexual perversion, both alone and with others, in front of Kinsey’s camera? I doubt they will.
[Source: Ibid]

People of God, men like Alfred Kinsey are the “professionals,” the “doctors,” and “learned men” who are selling a homosexual agenda to the world. They hide behind the title of “Doctor” as they hide the truth that they are debauched men who routinely engage in depraved sexual behavior. Why should the world, much less the Christian, give any credence at all to the “studies” men of depraved minds parade forth that claim homosexuality is healthy, wholesome, natural human behavior?

When Christians parrot the words of ungodly men, and begin to say that sin is normal, and that a person cannot change who they are, they are denying the power of Christ to set men free.

I Corinthians 6:9-11
Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God.

The next time someone tells you that homosexuality is normal behavior, consider the “authorities” who are behind this claim. It is sodomite males such as Dr. John Spiegel and Dr. Alfred Kinsey, who are the “experts” that have championed this perverse ideology.

Push Back! - Part 2

I am going to begin today’s blog post with a video recently released by the United Nations. This two minute video was created to coincide with a worldwide campaign to promote the acceptance and normalization of homosexual behavior. The video is titled The Riddle and is part of a campaign that is called Free and Equal.

Satan is a master of deception. His cunning is without equal. Even as he deceived Eve in the Garden, he continues to deceive men and women today. Whether he is persuading one person, or a billion, his methods do not change. He speaks a little truth, and attaches it to a very destructive lie. He pretends to be offering mankind something that will benefit, but it brings only death and judgment.

Consider the message of this video. The truth that the video contains is that homosexual behavior is practiced worldwide, in every nation. The whole world lies in the power of the evil one, and sin is an universal condition of the descendants of Adam. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”

This video is not lying when it speaks of homosexuality being found throughout all nations of men. The deceit comes in when the question is asked:

“What has existed in every country throughout history, yet is still considered abnormal?”

This question expresses “The Riddle,” to which the United Nations claims to provide the answer. Their answer: “Being gay.” The U.N., of course, is following Satan’s script, for long ago he posed a riddle for mankind when he spoke in the garden.

Genesis 3:1
Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which Yahweh God had made. And he said to the woman, "Indeed, has God said, 'You shall not eat from any tree of the garden'?”

It is interesting that Satan would couch his deception in the form of a question. He has done so with this U.N. program, and he did so in the Garden of Eden. The similarities do not end there, however. As in the Garden, Satan is presenting his deception in an attractive manner. We are told that the fruit in the Garden of Eden was “pleasant to the eyes, and desirable to make one wise.” Similarly, we find that the message and the speakers in this video are presented in an appealing manner. Most of the speakers are physically attractive. Some were chosen to evince sympathy, or to appeal to the minds of men and women, in a non-sensual manner.

The video begins with a young woman. She has an appearance of innocence. She has an unblemished complection, and is standing silently. When she speaks, she does so in a soft voice, with an expression intended to elicit sympathy. The following speakers maintain this soft voice, for the video is intended to express a view of homosexuals as a persecuted group of innocent victims who deserve the sympathy and support of all mankind.

If a person were to visit a Gay Pride parade in Chicago, New York, San Francisco, or other cities across the United States and the world, they would find a very different image of homosexuals. If they were to attend the Southern Decadence homosexual festival in New Orleans, they would see a far more debauched, raucous, and prideful image of homosexuals. If one were to observe the antics of pro-homosexual groups such as ACT-UP, peruse the pages of a “gay” magazine, or visit a gay nightclub, they would not find much evidence of humility, modesty, or anything resembling a wholesome image. The words “innocent,” “shy,” “respectful,” and “modest” may come to mind as one views this U.N. video, but these words are not typically used to describe the lives of homosexuals when they gather together in groups.

Not all homosexuals are loud, outspoken, arrogant, exhibitionists. Some lead quiet lives of reserve. Some remain in a long-term relationship with a partner, but such lives are the exception, rather than the rule. The homosexual community is renowned for its promiscuity, and its overt hedonism.

A much-cited study by Bell and Weinberg (1978), published by the Kinsey Institute, and often called the most ambitious study of homosexuality ever attempted, gathered its data before the AIDS crisis had begun. This study showed that 28 percent of homosexual males had had sexual encounters with one thousand or more partners. Furthermore, 79 percent said more than half of their sex partners were strangers. Only 1 percent of the sexually active men had had fewer than five lifetime partners. The authors concede: “Little credence can be given to the supposition that homosexual men’s ‘promiscuity’ has been overestimated” (p.82).“Almost half of the white homosexual males…said that they had had at least 500 different sexual partners during the course of their homosexual careers,” (p. 85)...

William Aaron’s autobiographical book “Straight” draws similar conclusions:

  In the gay life, fidelity is almost impossible. Since part of the compulsion of homosexuality seems to be a need on the part of the homophile to “absorb” masculinity from his sexual partners, he must be constantly on the lookout for [new partners]. Constantly the most successful homophile “marriages” are those where there is an agreement between the two to have affairs on the side while maintaining the semblance of permanence in their living arrangement. [p. 208]

He concludes:

  Gay life is most typical and works best when sexual contacts are impersonal and even anonymous. As a group the homosexuals I have known seem far more preoccupied with sex than heterosexuals are, and far more likely to think of a good sex life as many partners under many exciting circumstances. [p.209]

Christians may wonder why there is such a strong push to make homosexual marriage legal if there is so little fidelity among them. Certainly some of the interest is pecuniary, for with the legalization of homosexual marriage will come various “family” benefits, such as health insurance coverage, survivor benefits, and tax credits. Legalizing homosexual marriage will also make it easier for homosexuals to adopt children. Relatively few homosexuals are interested in marriage for the sake of fidelity to a partner. Dr. Nicolosi shares the following information.

In one recent study of gay male couples, 41.3% had open sexual agreements with some conditions or restrictions, and 10% had open sexual agreements with no restrictions on sex with outside partners. One-fifth of participants (21.9%) reported breaking their agreement in the preceding 12 months, and 13.2% of the sample reported having unprotected anal intercourse in the preceding three months with an outside partner of unknown or discordant HIV-status (1).

This study follows the classic research of McWhirter and Mattison, reported in The Male Couple (1984), which found that not a single male pair was able to maintain fidelity in their relationship for more than five years. Outside affairs, the researchers found, were not damaging to the relationship’s endurance, but were in fact essential to it. “The single most important factor that keeps couples together past the ten-year mark is the lack of possessiveness they feel,” says the authors (p. 256)...

With the exception of the pioneering work of Warren (1974), for many years, little attention was given to long term gay relationships. When McWhirter and Mattison published The Male Couple in 1984, their study was undertaken to disprove the reputation that gay male relationships do not last. The authors themselves were a homosexual couple, one a psychiatrist, the other a psychologist. After much searching they were able to locate 156 male couples in relationships that had lasted from 1 to 37 years. Two-thirds of the respondents had entered the relationship with either the implicit or the explicit expectation of sexual fidelity.

The results of their study show that of those 156 couples, only seven had been able to maintain sexual fidelity. Furthermore, of those seven couples, none had been together more than 5 years. In other words, the researchers were unable to find a single male couple that was able to maintain sexual fidelity for more than five years. They reported:

The expectation for outside sexual activity was the rule for male couples and the exception for heterosexuals. Heterosexual couples lived with some expectation that their relationships were to last “until death do us part,” whereas gay couples wondered if their relationships could survive. (p.3)

Satan’s goals in legalizing homosexual marriage have nothing to do with defending the “rights” of a minority group. Satan is no friend of man. His purpose is to destroy, or defile, everything Yahweh ordained to be holy. This defilement includes all of mankind, and the institutions that govern family life and communal living. Satan wants to transform society’s perception of marriage as an institution. Making homosexual marriage between two men, or two women legal, is just one more step to a larger goal of redefining marriage. The sanctity of the marriage covenant has been under attack for a long time as divorce has become increasingly common. With the legalization of homosexual unions the destruction of the societal conception of marriage will be nearly complete. The article previously cited includes the following statement.

Michelangelo Signorile describes the campaign “to fight for same-sex marriage and its benefits and then, once granted, redefine the institution completely--to demand the right to marry not as a way of adhering to society’s moral codes, but rather to debunk a myth and radically alter an archaic institution.” (1974, p 3).

Returning to the U.N. campaign to promote and normalize homosexuality throughout the world, we see many evidences of thought shaping. Language employed is key. Homosexuals, whom the Bible refers to as “Sodomites,” or “abusers of themselves with mankind,” are referred to as “gay.” The adoption of the word “gay” to describe homosexual behavior was a shrewd triumph for Satan. The English word “gay” traditionally meant “having or showing a merry, lively mood.” A secondary meaning was “bright or showy, as in gay colors.” Lively music was described as “gay.” Synonyms for the word include “cheerful, gleeful, happy, glad, cheery, lighthearted, joyous, sunny, and lively.”

Despite the fact that a great deal of homosexual behavior occurs in darkened clubs, hidden away from the light of day and the light of public scrutiny, it has become associated with a word that means “light,” or “sunny.” Despite the happy and upbeat connotations of the term “gay,” homosexuals experience far greater incidence of depression and suicide than heterosexuals.

An unusual prevalence of suicide attempts and ideation among homosexual persons has surfaced repeatedly as an incidental finding in studies on human sexuality. Forty percent of 5000 homosexual men and women who were surveyed by Jay and Young seriously considered or attempted suicide. Bell and Weinberg found that 1000 black and white homosexual men were, respectively, 12 and 3 times more likely than heterosexual men to report suicidal ideation or attempts...

In two different studies of homosexual and bisexual adolescents, one third of boys reported attempts, and repeated attempts were common...

The Report of the Secretary’s Task Force on Youth Suicide projected that gay adolescents were two to three times more likely than their peers to attempt suicide, accounting for as many as 30% of completed suicides each year.

Far from being “gay,” there is great evidence to demonstrate that homosexuals experience much greater incidence of depression and thoughts of ending their lives, than non-homosexuals. This is not a surprising finding when one considers that Satan is behind the homosexual agenda and he comes only to kill, steal, and destroy.

Marketing is king for Satan and his disciples, when it comes to selling a product, an idea, or a lifestyle. Satan has masterfully crafted a publicity campaign to make the homosexual lifestyle appear attractive. The word “gay” was carefully chosen to evoke a positive, lively image in the minds of men, women, and adolescents. The reality is that homosexual behavior leads to extremely higher occurrences of depression. To refer to the homosexual lifestyle as “despondent,” “depressed,” or “sad” would have been more accurate if one were pursuing truth in labeling, but it would have made the lifestyle harder to sell.

Campaign to Fight Gay Suicide

The image above reveals another aspect of Satan’s marketing prowess. He has chosen the rainbow as the symbol of the homosexual community. The rainbow was created by God as a symbol of promise and of new life, after the flood of Noah’s day had cut off wicked men and women from the earth. Satan has transformed this symbol into an image that promotes the same type of wickedness that has so often elicited God’s wrath. Satan is intent on redefining everything Yahweh declares holy as something unholy, and calling that which is evil good. A further example of this is the association of the word “Pride” with celebrations of the homosexual lifestyle.

Satan has taken pride, an attribute of sinful man that Yahweh deplores, and has transformed it into a virtue in the eyes of the world.

Proverbs 8:13
The fear of Yahweh is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way, and the perverted mouth, I hate.

Proverbs 11:2
When pride comes, then comes dishonor, but with the humble is wisdom.

Proverbs 16:18-19
Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. It is better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.

Proverbs 29:23
A man's pride will bring him low, but a humble spirit will obtain honor.

Mark 7:20-23
And [Yahshua] was saying, "That which proceeds out of the man, that is what defiles the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed the evil thoughts, fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries, deeds of coveting and wickedness, as well as deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride and foolishness. All these evil things proceed from within and defile the man."

This is the twisted, upside down world Satan has fashioned. He calls evil good. He makes a virtue out of that which Yahweh detests. He deceives men and women, enticing them to commit unnatural, and debased acts, convincing them that he is seeking their welfare, promoting their liberty, and protecting their freedoms. Satan lies as he tells humanity that following their unrestrained sexual desires will make them “gay” when in fact it leads to misery. When Jennifer Knapp came out with a new album after she revealed openly and unrepentantly that she was in a lesbian relationship, it seemed fitting that she titled it “Letting Go.”

Satan tells mankind that it is wrong to repress their fleshly desires and passions. He urges them to be true to themselves, and to let all inhibitions go. Christ declares that the way to life is very different.

Galatians 5:24-25
Now those who belong to Christ Yahshua have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.

Satan says, “Let go of your inhibitions. Give in to your fleshly passions.” Yahshua says, “Walk by the Spirit and put the passions of the flesh to death. Do not let sin reign in your mortal body.”

The U.N., as an instrument of Satan, is not the friend of humanity that it pretends to be. It promotes values that are  destructive. It is well known that the homosexual community is ravaged by the disease known as AIDS. AIDS was first recognized in 1981 and since then has killed more than 30 million people. It is estimated that another 34 million people are currently infected with HIV/AIDS, and they could eventually die from it. AIDS is primarily transmitted through unprotected sex. Statistics show that in 2009, 64% of all new cases of AIDS in the United States were the result of men having intercourse with other men. The incidence of AIDS is lowest in the Middle East and North Africa at 0.1% or less. Not coincidentally, these are Islamic countries where homosexuality is punishable by death.

The hypocrisy of the U.N. is revealed in that it refuses to combat AIDS by the most sure means, which is to advocate for men and women to abstain from homosexual behavior, or promiscuous heterosexual intercourse. The Bible reveals a direct link between sexual behavior that Yahweh declares to be immoral, and the destruction of the body.

Romans 1:26-27
Their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own bodies the due penalty of their error.

I Corinthians 3:16-17
Do you not know that you are a temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If any man defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him, for the temple of God is holy, and that is what you are.

U.N. Campaign

Satan is a master of deception. He has arrayed an unhealthy and immoral lifestyle in the garments of respectability and wholesomeness. By means of cunning arguments, and clever deceptions, he has deceived the masses. The Scriptures describe Satan as “the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world” (Revelation 12:9).

Consider the subtlety employed in the question, “What has existed in every country throughout history, yet is still considered abnormal?” The inference contained in this question is that if something is common it must be normal. This is a logical fallacy, but Satan knows that most people will not perceive his deceit.

Rapists exist in all nations of the world, but people would not describe the act of rape as “normal” behavior. The same could be said of murder, theft, pedophilia, and a host of other behaviors. The existence of a thing, even when it is common, does not make it “normal.” Due to the sinful condition of all mankind, we find that all types of deviant, and immoral behavior are common, but they should not be considered “normal.”

The U.N. has immense resources available to promote their anti-Christian worldview and homosexual agenda. The media, private organizations, and national governments, especially the United States, are also investing immense resources as they seek to indoctrinate the world population with a pro-homosexual view. The following statement can be found on the U.N. website.

‘Free & Equal,’ a year-long effort by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) and partners launched today in Cape Town, South Africa, focuses on the need for both legal reforms and public education to counter homophobia and transphobia.

This paragraph reveals another cunning ploy by the adversary of mankind. Not only has he chosen the positive word “gay” as a reference to homosexual behavior, but he has coined the word “homophobia” to refer to those who declare same sex relationships to be immoral. The word homophobia is comprised of two parts. “Homo” means “the same.” “Phobia” means “fear.” In essence, the word homophobia describes someone who fears homosexuals.

The Bible describes Satan as cunning for good reason. By describing those opposed to homosexual behavior in this way, Satan makes it appear as if these ones have an irrational fear. It can be compared to hydrophobia (fear of water), or agoraphobia (fear of being in open places, or crowds). This eventually gives those who are opposed to homosexuality a way out. They can say they merely had a mental sickness, but they have been cured. This word also mischaracterizes the true thoughts of those opposed to homosexuality.

I am not afraid of homosexuality. I am not homophobic. I am unable to embrace homosexual behavior as normal because Yahweh says it is not normal. He has defined it as sinful, deviant behavior. I am doing no more than agreeing with God. Nor do I hate, or have enmity, toward those who are practicing homosexuality. I desire their welfare. I wish to see them set free from bondage to sin. I desire that they might know what it is to walk in purity and holiness, with a clean conscience before God.

The Free and Equal campaign focuses on legal reforms and public education. The legal reforms will eventually lead to the enactment of laws where any criticism of homosexuality will be declared a hate crime. This week, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas stated the following in an interview on the Christian Broadcasting Network.

“If you look at other nations that have gone down the road towards gay marriage, that’s the next step of where it gets enforced,” Cruz agreed. “It gets enforced against Christian pastors who decline to perform gay marriages, who speak out and preach biblical truths on marriage, that has been defined elsewhere as hate speech, as inconsistent with the enlightened view of government.”

“I think there is no doubt that the advocates who are driving this effort in the United States want to see us end up in that same place.”

When the U.N. calls for further “public education” on the subject of homosexuality, they are actually referring to indoctrination and thought control. Already, if a person in government employment, or a large number of politically correct corporations,  speaks out against homosexual behavior, they are subject to be required to attend sensitivity training classes, or could be terminated. It matters not if the person’s religious beliefs declare same sex relationships to be immoral. On the U.N. website is found the following statement.

Ms. Pillay (UN High Commissioner for Human Rights) underlined that “the balance between tradition and culture, on the one hand, and universal human rights, on the other, must be struck in favour of rights,” adding that “no personal opinion, no religious belief, no matter how deeply held or widely shared, can ever justify depriving another human being of his or her basic rights.”

This is a masterfully deceptive statement. In speaking about “the balance” between religious belief and whatever the UN declares to be a human right, they declare that the UN will always be favored. This is not balance. It is imbalance. Who decides what is a human right? Yahweh would say that it is a human right for a baby to be safe in its mother’s womb. The U.N. says it is the mother’s right to terminate the life of the baby growing within her. Yahweh states that homosexuality is evil behavior. The U.N. says it is a protected lifestyle, while encouraging people everywhere to embrace it. The following statement by the U.N.’s Secretary General, is found on their website:

“To those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, let me say: You are not alone. Your struggle for an end to violence and discrimination is a shared struggle. Any attack on you is an attack on the universal values of the United Nations that I have sworn to defend and uphold.”
[Secretary General Ban Ki-moon]

From whence do these “universal values” derive? They are not rights established by the Creator. The right to practice homosexuality as a protected lifestyle is inspired by Satan, and adopted by his disciples. That the United Nations is at variance with Yahweh, and in open rebellion against Him, is revealed in the words spoken at the kick-off of the Free and Equal campaign. South African Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu was invited to speak at the launch of this campaign. He stated:

Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu

“I would refuse to go to a homophobic heaven,” declared the high-profile black African leader...“No, I would say sorry — I mean, I would much rather go to the other place,” he said. Tutu added for emphasis, “I would not worship a God who is homophobic and that is how deeply I feel about this.”

This apostate Archbishop is vividly manifesting the PRIDE of the homosexual movement. He has set his throne above that of God. He would overrule the Creator, calling the Holy One unjust and unrighteous in His judgments.

Brothers and sisters, neither Satan, nor his human disciples, will relent on this matter. They will continue to press forward with their homosexual agenda until it is accepted by every nation on earth. Any criticism of homosexuality will be declared a criminal offense. To agree with Yahweh that homosexuality is an abomination will be characterized as a hate crime. An hour is near at hand when the words of Yahshua will be realized.

Luke 21:16-19
“But you will be delivered up even by parents and brothers and relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death, and you will be hated by all on account of My name. Yet not a hair of your head will perish. By your endurance you will gain your lives.”

As disciples of Christ we must recognize that we are not wrestling against flesh and blood. Mankind’s true adversaries are spiritual forces of wickedness in high places. Many have been taken captive through deceit to do Satan’s will. Yahweh will judge. While we have light we must speak the truth, seeking to deliver some from the bondage of sin and Satan.
