Through the eyes of Habakkuk


There is a lot that happens in a city, this weekend much of the focus will be on the Mardi Gras arts festival. It does have its own forms of hate, hurt & incoherence though. We have been told homosexuality is genetic but the so called finding appears to be fraudulent.Some things are not what they seem to be.http://creation.com/creationism-and-the-problem-of-homosexual-behaviour


In a way it’s an opportunity for the gay community to vent their frustration at their political & religious opponents. In as much as the LGTB crowd would interpret their celebration as one of victory, to me it looks more like a crowd that have fallen captive to the deceitfulness of sin. For this I receive the name homophobe. God calls me to rejoice in situations like this, for the name is given out of ignorance & arrogance.


What I can also rejoice in is that God is still calling people out of the darkness into His marvellous light. There are many personal stories of people trapped in sexual sin being rescued…gay & straight that have & are being reconciled to God through the message of the cross. 


Col 1:22-23. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation— if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.
