Chicken, chicken, chicken. I am talking about finger licking southern chicken. Although, it is laced with sodium and fattening goodness, hands down Chick-Fil-A rocks! Recently, in the news there has been an uproar (not for me) about the statement made by Chick-Fil-A’s President, Dan Cathy:
We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that…we know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles. I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage,’ and I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about.
Amen to that! I am glad somebody is taking a stand for holiness. Time is out for jelly back, wimpy Christian’s who are out to so-called “protect” everyone’s feelings. If we keep “protecting” everyone’s feelings how is anyone, including us going to be saved from a blazing hell that enlarges itself everyday? If we are not sharing the whole truth, then God is really not our Father because he is not the Father of lies, but Satan is. The word of God does not come to appease fleshly desires, but it comes to bring us life everlasting and save us from ourselves. “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” (Prov. 14:12).
You might say, “You are spreading hate. Isn’t your God supposed to be a loving God?” Yes, he is not just loving, but he is the very definition of it. However, he hates sin to the point that he repented that he had ever made man, so he flooded the whole earth except for Noah and a faithful few who found grace in his sight! The enemy of our souls, Satan, has twisted and deceived many into believing God is so loving that it does not matter what we do or how we live. I can live how I want and still go to heaven, right? Wrong! The whole duty of man is to fear God and keep his commandments (Eccles. 6:12). If we do not do that, then we have chosen our place where to spend an eternity. A fear of God is much needed today because if we feared and reverenced God we would not be doing or rejecting God’s holy word like we do.
Unfortunately, yes, there are some people out here who have hurt, killed, or verbally abused homosexual people, but that is not what the real Christian will do or is about doing. We are in a spiritual battle and we are going against any thought, idea, way, law, or anything that is contrary to the order of God. We don’t wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12). We are and come against every unclean, filthy demonic spirit that has come to steal,kill, and destroy! Satan is already defeated because we have power in the name of Jesus. The only way to uncover the scales and see clearly is through the word of God and the power of the Holy Ghost. So, yes you are right I hate homosexuality! If you are a real Christian you HATE SIN, period! Homosexuality, fornication, lying, stealing, gluttony, lust, and anything else that goes against God’s holy order and is contrary to his will is sin. Whatever my Father hates I hate. If it is an abomination to him, then it is an abomination to me.
Some are on the outrage, as if they did not know Chick-Fil-A was a Christian based company? Really? You know every time you bit into an original chicken sandwich with Polynesian sauce or a waffle fry that it almost brought you to tears. The company is not discriminating against those who are homosexual. The CEO does not believe in gay marriage just like a lot of other entrepreneurs and people sitting next to you right now. Are you going to boycott them too? If so, then pull out your human plastic bubble and have fun with that. No human agrees on every subject or topic. Guess what? My next door neighbor smokes, but I do not, so I cannot talk to him anymore. My banker’s favorite color is green, so I will boycott him because pink rocks. My dad is a Dallas Cowboys fan and I am a staunch Panthers fan, so now I loathe him. Some of my friends and family are not saved yet, so I will no longer talk or be kind to them. None of this makes sense at all.
Sir/ Madam, here is your menu. You can only have one side with your entree, God’s side or Satan’s side. We can only pick one. Which one will you pick? I suggest God’s side. It’s to live for.
