Men, we can thank God that despite all the attacks on traditional family values in America that there are still millions of people who are prepared to stand up and make their voice heard and oppose those who try and force their liberal agenda upon us.
They liberals want us to shut up, bow down, and let them run over us like timid little lambs. Thank God, it is obvious that they had better think again for we are not going quit, ever. The Chick-fil-A people took their stand against the homosexual agenda and millions of good people rallied to their cause. If I remember correctly, the Chick-fil-A backed down a little under pressure. I personally, along with multitudes, felt let down. I hope that the Duck Dynasty folk will not ever back down. Nobody should ever have to back down from saying that those who practice sins that are clearly condemned in the Scriptures are damned or going to hell if they do not repent, especially if they are not saying it in a hateful way.
Phil Robertson was asked his opinion and he answered honestly. Whatever God condemns we must likewise condemn. Those who say we are not to judge others, quoting Jesus' words in Matthew 7:1, "Judge not that ye be not judged" are wrong when they think these words mean we should not express an opinion in opposition to moral sins such as homosexuality, adultery, or pornography.
In this particular context, Jesus meant that we should not judge people in a way that we would not wants others to judge us, e.g. unfair judgment and not knowing all the facts.
In John 7:24 Jesus said, "Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment." In 1 Corinthians 5:12 and 6:2-5 Paul instructs the Corinthian church to judge the matters concerning behavior in the church themselves rather than take the matters to the court.
As fathers, we need to instruct our children about these truths because men will use Scriptures out of context to support their argument for their sin. The Bible clearly gives us God's mandate regarding adultery, sexual promiscuity, and homosexuality. He wants us to affirm and speak out His ways in a loving and concerned way.
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 says, "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, not effeminate (male prostitutes), nor abusers of themselves with mankind (practice homosexuality), nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God."
