Scripture: Proverbs 22:17-21
God told Solomon that if he would incline his ear, hear God’s words and apply them in his heart, it would be a pleasant thing. The Word would become fixed on his lips, and his trust would be in the Lord. God’s truth is absolute. God’s truth has certainty. Proverbs 22: 21 is the key, “That I may make you know the certainty of the words of truth, That you may answer words of truth To those who send to you.” How would we answer words of truth to those who liken the issue of homosexuality in the military to discrimination in the 40’s and 50’s concerning black Americans. I watched two senators trying to answer these questions and was appalled at how the Democratic senator likened homosexuality to the issue of justice. I was stunned that the only response the Republican senator could give was a survey of combat troops who thought it would hinder their ability in combat. There was not one single answer of truth in either senator over the issue. It was like God did not exist and there was no absolute truth. Opening the military to homosexuality is opening the military to utter destruction. God’s truth in absolute terms is not unclear on this issue. The absolute truth of Romans 1:32 makes it very, very clear that those who approve of homosexuality as well as those who practice it are “…worthy of death…” This verse says, “…who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.” The book of Jude calls these perpetrators of perversion “twice dead.” The fastest way to devastate the military is to send men out to fight with utter and complete sin in the camp so that they cannot stand before their enemies. The problem we have in nations today is that the church does not proclaim the absolute truth of God’s Word.
