Statement on Homosexuality, Marriage, & Freedom of Speech:http://impactmiami.org/statementonhom...
In this video Pastor Jack argues that pedophiles use the same argument as homosexuals to get their behavior sanctioned by the US Government. Even though these two sins can't be compared in "value" or "consequence", pederasty is a greater sin then homosexuality, modern day pedophilia activist use the same points as former homosexual apologist. Such as the argument of "nature" and "14th amendment rights" to justify the normalization and legalization of their behavior (i.e. same sex marriage, ageism=lowering age of consent for youth, legalized adult\child relationship, legalization of marijuana, etc)
See (see Man-Boy Love Association Website). Also, Here is a good video demonstrating the similar arguments Man\Boy Love activist make with Homosexual activist: http://youtu.be/2l5Mc28GbEE
Christians should use their freedom of speech and political engagement to argue for restraint and for righteous social ethics based on the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20) and Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7)
In this video Pastor Jack Hakimian presents an argument that equal rights are limited even in our current US context. We don't have total freedom of speech without consequences.
We don't have complete right to bear arms if you have felonies. We don't have the right to physically dishonor our parents without it being a criminal offense. You don't have the right to just divorce without justification and some kind of economic or social consequences. We cannot threaten the president without being arrested indefinitely under current terrorist laws.
For the Christian in politics they have to let their orthodox Christian theology determine their view about gay marriage and not the arguments of human being in the political\cultural climate. Christianity is God-centered and not human-centered ethical system. Read the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20). Democracy allows us as Christians to pray and vote in line with our religious beliefs. The founders protected religion, the right to assemble and dissent. Christians need to use those rights for the Glory of God, justice, love, and mercy.
The LORD's curse is on the house of the wicked, but he blesses the home of the righteous.
For lack of guidance a nation falls, but many advisers make victory sure.
Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.
When a country is rebellious, it has many rulers, but a man of understanding and knowledge maintains order.
Proverbs 29: 2 When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan.
By justice a king gives a country stability, but one who is greedy for bribes tears it down.
Proverbs 29:7 The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern.
