Many today want to befriend the sodomites in order to "win them to Christ later." Problem is, once they are "friends," they are afraid of pointing out the sin for fear of offending their friend and losing him/her as a friend. And so, they defend their friend when others point out the sin, making the good guy look like the bad guy. Isaiah prophesied it would happen centuries ago. People will call good evil and evil good.
We'd best stand with Christ and truth, or we will fall with the world
James 4:4 (KJV) 4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. James 4:5 (KJV) 5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?
the one that defends the world's standards, the one who defends sin, is an enemy og God.
James 1:13 (KJV) 13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: James 1:14 (KJV) 14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. James 1:15 (KJV) 15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
I have always believed that God told either Adam, or Eve, or both... Not to eat of the tree or even to touch it.Wherefore, by one man's disobedience sin entered. One man. The sin was not until Adam disobeyed. Yes, Eve ate first. However the eyes of both were opened after they had both ate.
this reminds me of when I moved to a thirty-nine acre farm in Coleridge, NC back in 1993. Now, the farmland had been uninhabited for nearly four years. Yet, while setting up parameters for a fence where the horses would be corralled, I happened across an interesting thing... A pumpkin on a vine! Around sixteen inches in diameter and fully ripe.
