How They Deny Jesus…

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.(2 Timothy 3:1-5)

There is a frightening phenomenon that I have observed lately. I have been seeing the unhappy spectacle of young people, between their teens and early thirties, reared in the evangelical subculture, yet  denying Christ.

They don’t consciously do it, I have no doubt that they don’t realise that they are denying the Saviour, but indeed they are, and in many cases with a vehemence!

The watershed for these young people is the acceptance and rejection of homosexuality.Through a distorted concept of the civil rights movement of the 1960’s , Homosexuals are now considered to be the new  victims of oppression,  and those who would in any way judge it as evil are now the new bigots.

In fact, we have come to the point in our post christian, paganized culture, where it is not even enough to ‘tolerate’ homosexuality, the pressure is on to become advocates of it, to champion it, and there is a new freedom  for people, to hate and demean anyone who would dare call it into question.

The age group I mentioned at the beginning of the article, teens through early thirties are perhaps vulnerable for a number of reasons;

It is they who have been for the most part deliberately propagandized through our public schools, to develop ‘sensitivity’ to homosexual issues, and  to question even their own sexuality, long before they have even entered puberty.

Anti bullying campaigns, and whole school days of self-imposed silence in solidarity with ‘Gay’ students have been invented by “gay activists” in order cast homosexuality into a kind of victim status, thus tapping into the natural sympathy and sense of fair play of the young.

Thus to this generation, interaction with and acceptance of homosexuals is an easy bona fide, a way to assert that  “I am compassionate, open minded, unprejudiced and much more loving than the traditional christian church”.

This is how they deny Christ. In the name of “being loving”, and “understanding” they repudiate the revelation of God given to us through Jewish Prophets and Christian apostles, without a second thought.

Our Christian sexual mores are not mere constructs of uptight pastors,priests or rabbis, they are a revelation from God!

“For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother and shall cleave to his wife and they two shall be one flesh…and what God hath joined together, let no man put asunder”.

Man didn’t originate the above, that is God’s definition of marriage. Jesus cited it as being “from the beginning“, the original intent for marriage.

That revelation from heaven caused a moral earthquake in the ancient world,  transforming paganism’s exhausted, debauched, rotting societies, offering a wholesome life affirming alternative. Here is how columnist Dennis Prager,who happens to be a practicing Jew describes it,

When Judaism demanded that all sexual activity be channeled into marriage, it changed the world. The Torah’s prohibition of non-marital sex quite simply made the creation of Western civilization possible. Societies that did not place boundaries around sexuality were stymied in their development. The subsequent dominance of the Western world can largely be attributed to the sexual revolution initiated by Judaism and later carried forward by Christianity.

This revolution consisted of forcing the sexual genie into the marital bottle. It ensured that sex no longer dominated society, heightened male-female love and sexuality (and thereby almost alone created the possibility of love and eroticism within marriage), and began the arduous task of elevating the status of women.

Judaism’s Sexual Revolution

But this generation dismisses that for the most part. For the cheap “holier than thou” feeling of compassion, sophistication and solidarity with an oppressed minority,  “christian” young people align themselves with the cause of homosexual marriage, at the expense of those who seek to proclaim the Word of God to this generation.

This is how they deny Jesus, and don’t even realise it.They repudiate his teaching on a very important subject, they side with a world in rebellion against God’s moral order. They don’t realise it in fact they actually believe they are being more merciful and Christlike than other christians.

Sides are being taken in this culmination of the cosmic struggle between Righteousness and unrighteousness, light and darkness, the truth and the Lie, and neutrality is impossible.

I think we need to reach our own young people because they don’t seem ready to stand for Jesus at the point where the world most resists Him.

They are confused about what Love is, but arrogantly believe they are more sophisticated and compassionate than the whole of the christian church through the centuries.

    Thank you, Pastor Bill. This denial subtle. So was the snake in the Garden of Eden. This subtle approach denies God’s goodness and righteousness and love — without admitting it. It says that we can be like God, knowing good and evil — that our standards are more righteous than God’s standards. That when our sense of what is right conflicts with what God says, that we should listen to ourselves instead of listening to God.

    I think this is the end result of public education. Indoctrination through promotion of a world without God. A book that helped me fully understand what is happening in this arena is The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America by Charlotte Iserbyte. She was a senior advisor in the office of Educational research and developement during the Reagan administration.

    You forgot to blame science and evolution for this issue.

  4. You might find my latest article reviewing “America’s Real War” to be quite interesting along this line of thought:

    First we accepted the lie, God did not create the world. Next murdering our unborn children are a right. Now the lie, to be loving, is to promote the destruction of the God ordained society, the family. We continue down the path of man is right and God(Bible) is a liar. Soon the Christian comes to the same conclusion the world does, God is dead, there is no judgement.

  6. (John 3:20) For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light, lest his deeds should be exposed.

    It’s going to get worse, really worse!! Pray that people repent from conviction of the Holy Ghost, we need to stand up and preach righteousness, and train and teach our children how to keep clear of these doctrines that lead to hell. Pray for one another without ceasing.

    Spend some time in the first chapters of Genesis (with your children and teens?) and look at the beauty and order with which God created everything. Read how God specifically created Adam in His own image. God created the animals, and gave Adam authority over them. God brought the animals to Adam to name each one, but for Adam no helper was found. God specifically and intentionally caused a deep sleep to come upon Adam and God fashioned Eve from Adam’s own body. Then God brought Eve to Adam. It was all done intentionally, orderly, beautifully, perfectly, with purpose and meaning and for the good of both Adam and Eve and the whole human race. God blessed them, and told them to be fruitful and multiply. But after the fall, humankind has been in rebellion against everything that God created and instituted. Including marriage, male/female distinctions, human sexuality, human and animal distinctionsetc. satan cannot create he can only distort. Depraved man loves what is evil and against God’s perfect created order. God separates light and darkness and is associated with light. Fallen man prefers darkness. God created male and female and man distorts them. God intends unity in diversity and man wants likeness and sameness. God created human and animal categories and gave humans authority over the animals, and man distorts these distinctions. God blesses and says to be fruitful and multiply; man wants to kill and says there are too many people and some aren’t fit to live. On and on it goes, man in rebellion against God and God’s ways. They hate God as Creator so they deny this foundational fact in order to bring about the rest of the things that they prefer. They suppress the truth! Romans 1:18
