Again, we will be told that June is Gay Pride month. In addition to October being dubbed ‘coming out’ month, I can see the homosexual agenda try to adopt all twelve months soon! The fact that a vocal minority has dubbed June ‘ pride’ month should tell us another story aside from the gay word.
It is pretty common knowledge that PRIDE is the capital sin. Should that fact be overlooked?
Is there anyone reading this who can name the seven capital sins which, for good reason, are also known as the “seven deadly sins”?
Of those who can, congratulations to you!
Of those who cannot here is the list:: Pride, Lust, Envy, Anger, Covetousness (also called Greed or Avarice), Laziness (sloth), Gluttony. These are the seven deadly sins. Many deal with attitude. The attitude leads to sin.
Most people can usually start the recitation with the first and greatest – that sin for which Lucifer was cast out of heaven ‑ PRIDE.
We know that gluttony leads to death. We know anger can lead to death. We know lust can lead to death (S.T.D’s A.I.D.S.). How soon can we expect to see a National Anger month?
But it is lesser known that Sodom & Gomorrah were destroyed, not just for sodomy (lust), but also for pride, gluttony and self-centeredness (covetousness), as documented in the Holy Scriptures in the book of Ezekiel chapter 16, verses 49‑50: “Behold this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: Pride, overabundance of food (gluttony), prosperous ease (covetousness) and idleness (laziness) were hers; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.(self centeredness) And they were haughty and committed abominable offense before Me, (gay pride parades?) therefore I removed them when I saw it and I saw fit.” (Amplified)] photo from Ozone Inc. /Getty Images
“Sodom was an example unto those that after should live ungodly” (2 Peter 2:6 KJV). This can be construed as a warning, and well should be by wise, understanding, and careful people.
To those of you reading this on the site for The Proverbs 1:20 Column I would encourage you to further look up Ezekiel 16:54 for continuing Scripture regarding Sodom where it goes on to say “That thou mayest bear thine own shame, and mayest be confounded in all that thou hast done, in that thou art a comfort unto them.” (KJV) I suggest also the NKJV, NIV, RSV, (cont’d below picture)
It is not enough to claim that Jesus loves us; we must prove to the Father who sent Jesus for us, that we return that love to the Father through Jesus. Obedience proves this to Him. Do you think adulterers, liars, gluttons, the greedy, the envious, sodomites, or murders are obedient or disobedient to God? We should all be familiar with the laws of cause and effect. Proud people don’t need our approval, they need our prayers. Perhaps June should be better dubbed ‘pray for a gay’ month.
The Holy Scriptures further address ‘gay pride’: “The look on their faces testifies against them; they parade their sin like Sodom; they do not hide it. Woe unto them! They have brought disaster upon themselves.” Isaiah 3:9 NIV Who then will warn?
