In this day and age, this essay cannot be written and the words spoken; otherwise, the wrath of the woke crowd is aroused. Too bad. Let’s talk about what the Bible says about depravity.
Leviticus 18 is a forbidden chapter by anyone who desires to live according to the gospel of self and not the Word of God. The practices spoken of here are either perverted or ignored. After all, according to the cognoscenti of today, i.e., those who are the smartest and most informed people on the planet, the Bible is either a dead letter that has no relevance to our enlightened times, or like the Constitution, a living document that must be adapted to the cultural mores of our society. I’m not sure how they can have it both ways, but pretzels probably aren’t aware of how they’re twisted into shape either.
This chapter outlines God’s prohibitions against sexual practices that rise as such a stench in His nostrils that they literally make Him sick. Depravity seems like too tame a word. Here is what Websters says as a definition of depravity: “the quality or state of being corrupt, evil, or perverted.” It pertains to all that and more in the eyes of God.
We’ll take a moment and point out some verses in which God declared such perversions should not be done.
“You shall not give any of your children to offer them to Molech, and so profane the name of your God: I am the Lord.”
The sacrifice of children to pagan gods debased the value of life that God created.
Whether in pagan lands or Israelite, any people in ancient days who committed such an act aroused God’s great wrath. This sacrifice to Molech has carried forward to today through the abortion of unwanted children. These children are mercilessly killed on the altar of self – “my body, my choice.”
No, it’s not your body. It belongs to God, as does that life within your womb. America has sacrificed over 60 million children to this god of convenience. We have shed the blood of the innocent, and it cries out for vengeance.
“You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.”
God does not change. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. There are civil laws that pertained only to Israel in the Old Testament, but God’s moral laws were not only for then. They remain in effect. Let’s be clear: God considers homosexuality an abomination. There are no loopholes and no homosexuality advocates who can alter that despite their warped logic. America has bowed its knee to the LGBT god; we worship this foreign entity with pomp and fervor, even having gone so far during the Obama Administration as to light up the White House in rainbow colors, mocking God in the process of celebrating homosexuality as the law of the land.
The powers that be at the highest levels of government have made the definitive statement that we are no longer a Christian nation. God will not allow this to stand.
“And you shall not lie with any animal and so make yourself unclean with it, neither shall any woman give herself to an animal to lie with it: it is perversion.”
Bestiality has always been an underground practice, but make no mistake, it has been present since the beginning and will gain favor as we near the Tribulation.
It is the height of perversion, which makes it all the more attractive to those who hate God. Sex is their god. Any way they can attain it, either with another human or via intercourse with an animal, they will do so, and in the process, spit in God’s eye. As this practice increases in popularity and probably becomes legal, it simply adds to the iniquities that God is surely recording as the final justification to punish America in its wickedness.
And how will God deal with this evil? As He did with every other nation on earth and the people of Israel. He spells it out in Leviticus 18:24-25:
“Do not make yourselves unclean by any of these things, for by all these the nations I am driving out before you have become unclean, and the land became unclean, so that I punished its iniquity, and the land vomited out its inhabitants.”
America is already under this curse. We have transgressed the boundaries of decent conduct that God expects for humanity.
Depravity has overtaken the moral fiber of the inhabitants of this country. We have become degraded in our thinking, and the hearts of the populace are exceedingly evil – led into this state by the very people who should have guided this nation in a Godly manner. These individuals – the highest officials in government, even many religious leaders – have taken us to the very edge of the cliff. One little push, and America, which has already embraced every sin and depraved act possible, will fall to its death. Whatever this looks like in America, God will vomit us out of the land.
The only way for anyone to escape the destruction that comes with God’s wrath poured out upon an unbelieving, trespassing people is belief and trust in Jesus Christ. He is the way, the truth, and the life. Every other path, including and especially committing these perverted sexual practices, leads to death.
