Precursor to the Mark of the Beast?

Gay Precursor to the Mark of the Beast

A few years ago, while visiting family in Maryland, I attended church with my brother. It was a very hip contemporary church. The pastor, who looked in his early forties, wore a shirt and jeans. I saw a parishioner with a Mohawk haircut and others with tattoos. This is not a judgment, merely an observation that the congregation was very racially diverse, as well as in their attire.

The topic of the pastor’s sermon was homosexuality. He disclosed that his sister is a homosexual. Folks, filled with national statistics and documented facts, the pastor delivered the most loving and compassionate sermon about God and homosexuality that I had ever heard.

I told my brother that if his pastor’s loving sermon was heard nationally, the left (the mainstream media and Democrats) would be picketing the building, attempting to close his church down. Like most Christians back then, my brother was unaware of the aggressiveness of radical homosexual activists.

Traveling the country as a political activist, I am well aware that the left’s national initiative goes far beyond seeking tolerance. Their goal is to force Christians to celebrate every item on the homosexual agenda. They deem anything less unacceptable, bigoted, and hateful.

Do not be deceived, folks. Christian businesses are not refusing service to homosexuals. The Christians driven out of business by leftist activists routinely served homosexuals, but in good conscience could not service a homosexual wedding. Rather than selecting vendors eager to service same-sex weddings, leftists insidiously targeted Christian businesses in an attempt to bully them into compromising their faith as they perceive it – in essence, denying Christ. Meanwhile, the mainstream media is complicit in helping leftist hit-persons portray themselves as passive victims and Christian business owners as hate-filled aggressors.

The left’s intensely vitriolic reaction to Christians standing up for their First Amendment rights reminds me of a monologue in the movie Pulp Fiction. Samuel L. Jackson playing a hitman said, “… and I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger …”

Leftists’ attacks have forced the closing of Christian businesses who said, in good conscience and faithfulness to their faith, they could not service a homosexual wedding. The latest Christian business suffering the left’s great vengeance and furious anger is Memories Pizza. These attacks caused me to wonder: are we experiencing a precursor to the Mark of the Beast?

According to the Bible, people will be unable to buy or sell (earn a living) without accepting the Mark of the Beast on their foreheads. Today in America, the left has decreed that Christians will not be allowed to have a business without fully embracing same-sex marriage – the Mark of the Rainbow on their front door.

To my fellow Christians, I wish to borrow a line from the theme song of the Cops TV program: “Whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do when they come for you?”

    For starters I am a true Christian, I will never believe that Christianity will die here in AMERICA. Now I will tell you why, there are millions of Christians here in AMERICA. I will never ever allow GOD to be taken out of his COUNTRY, this may go on in other third world countries, but not only that we have political officials here in America who also are Christians. Not only that AMERICA WAS & IS FOUNDED ON JUDEO CHRISTIAN VALUES. True Americans will never ever alow GOD to be taken out or be removed from his Country America. God is all pure Love, happiness, joy. If you don’t have my loving god in your life, then how can you be happy, joyful. If I didn’t have God in my life then I would be so miserable. It is a well known fact that it is an Abomination to be with the same sex. There isn’t no way on the face of the earth that I would ever condone homosexuality, I will always do everything in my power to stop that from happening, by always using my God given Constitutional Rights to always fight for CHRIST. I mean for instance I have been sick for almost 3 years with excruciating chest pain. If it were not for GOD then I would be in a whole lot more pain, this is a fact. Any church that allows homosexuality to be taught in their church which is also the house of God will be judged more harshly than anybody else, in other words if you go against GODS LAWS & GODS WORD THEN YOU WILL GO STRAIGHT TO HELL. I truly do love GOD my Father, so I will always continue to fight tooth & nail to keep GOD ALWAYS IN HIS COUNTRY. If you are a true Christian then you also will continue to always fight tooth & nail to make sure that GOD WILL ALWAYS BE FOREVER IN GODS COUNTRY. GOD BLESS ALL OF GODS CHILDREN & GOD BLESS AMERICA.

  2. I agree. True Christians and believers in the Word of God are going to be tested more and more. We must stand up for the truth even to death, if need be.
