Not a hero? This is where our society has come; Winter Olympics

I know this is going to show how disconnected I am from mainstream media, but I just learned of the outcry concerning Russia and the controversy involving their stance against homosexuals.

I am not going to beat this dead horse. You all know by now that I firmly stand against the homosexual lifestyle, and I do not want to bash the LGBT. But it is an affront to God and to a godly society, and I must declare what is true.

Corporations and the media flood the internet with support for the LGBT. Let this be a reminder of how fallen our world is and of how holy God is. The LGBT are not heroes, folks.

The heroes are conservative men and women who stand for the truth of the Word of God and are willing to pay the price when they are alienated by society.

We should not resort to bashing the LGBT, but we do need to instruct our youth to look through the "smoke screen" and see the real problems that underlie the bitterness and conflict. Sin is present and strong as ever. The Devil is a real force in this world and he wants all LGBT to continue in their blindness on a path into Hell.

Christian, this should bring you to tears and put you in mind of how blessed you are to have Truth and Life.

Great article in World magazine of a man who was caught in homosexual lifestyle, but Christ made him whole through the prayers and testimony of his parents. His name is Christopher Yuan. Great testimony of God's grace and power!

Thanks Mr Caouette! There are a number of great testimonies out there and it is wonderful to see these men ( and sometimes women) seek God's restoration.

WELCOME TO THE WRITING SITE OF SCOTT APPLETON

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
