Only in Jesus is There Good News

There is a war going on right now by Secular Humanist Multicultural (let’s call them) Transformists AGAINST Christian faith derived from the Holy Bible. Media (including Entertainment – Big Screen and TV), major corporations, LGBTQ activists, college professors AND school teachers (including school district administrative personnel) are propagandizing (i.e. brainwashing) society against Christian Morality. These people who are influential in shaping the opinion of society at large are purposely transforming a society once dedicated to respect Christian principles into denigrating Christian Morality.
If you are a Church goer and the preaching you listen to tells you Biblical principles (i.e. the God-Inspired Word of God) are archaic and out of step with modern humanity, that preacher is spewing godless transformative thought. God have mercy! That Transformist preacher may even share so-called alternative scholarly beliefs that delegitimizes the original meaning of Holy Scripture. That’s what the Devil did to Adam and Eve to transform them from obedience to God to allegiance to the old serpent Satan.
3 1 Now the serpent was more subtle and crafty than any living creature of the field which the Lord God had made. And he [Satan] said to the woman, Can it really be that God has said, You shall not eat from every tree of the garden?
2 And the woman said to the serpent, We may eat the fruit from the trees of the garden,
3 Except the fruit from the tree which is in the middle of the garden. God has said, You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.
4 But the serpent said to the woman, You shall not surely die,
5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing the difference between good and evil and blessing and calamity.
6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good (suitable, pleasant) for food and that it was delightful to look at, and a tree to be desired in order to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she gave some also to her husband, and he ate. (Genesis 3: 1-6 AMPC)
Satan twisted God’s Words twisting the intent to make God appear the liar. Did Adam and Eve die physically after eating the forbidden fruit? NO! But they did die spiritually separating themselves from the Presence of God.
8 And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.
9 But the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, Where are you? (Genesis 3: 8-9 AMPC)
That separation from the Presence of God is what sends people to hell when they die physically. Believing in the sacrificial price paid by Jesus and His Resurrection from death to life restores one to the Presence of God spiritually with the promise of a new body clothed in God’s Glory in the Return of Christ Jesus and the resurrection of all dead in the Last Judgement. I believe these Scripture reference illustrate my point:
Acts 16: 30-31; Romans 10: 8-13; 1 Corinthians 15: 45-49, 52-57; Jude 18-23; Revelation 21: 8 (AMPC):
30 And he brought them out [of the dungeon] and said, Men, what is it necessary for me to do that I may be saved?
31 And they answered, Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ [[a]give yourself up to Him, [b] take yourself out of your own keeping and entrust yourself into His keeping] and you will be saved, [and this applies both to] you and your household as well.
8 But what does it say? The Word (God’s message in Christ) is near you, on your lips and in your heart; that is, the Word (the message, the basis and object) of faith which we preach,
9 Because if you acknowledge and confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and in your heart believe (adhere to, trust in, and rely on the truth) that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
10 For with the heart a person believes (adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Christ) and so is justified (declared righteous, acceptable to God), and with the mouth he confesses (declares openly and speaks out freely his faith) and confirms [his] salvation.
11 The Scripture says, No man who believes in Him [who adheres to, relies on, and trusts in Him] will [ever] be put to shame or be disappointed.
12 [No one] for there is no distinction between Jew and Greek. The same Lord is Lord over all [of us] and He generously bestows His riches upon all who call upon Him [in faith].
13 For everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord [invoking Him as Lord] will be saved.
1 Corinthians 15:45-49
45 Thus it is written, The first man Adam became a living being (an individual personality); the last Adam (Christ) became a life-giving Spirit [restoring the dead to life].
46 But it is not the spiritual life which came first, but the physical and then the spiritual.
47 The first man [was] from out of earth, made of dust (earthly-minded); the second Man [is] the Lord from out of heaven.
48 Now those who are made of the dust are like him who was first made of the dust (earthly-minded); and as is [the Man] from heaven, so also [are those] who are of heaven (heavenly-minded).
49 And just as we have borne the image [of the man] of dust, so shall we and so [a]let us also bear the image [of the Man] of heaven.
1 Corinthians 15:52-57
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the [sound of the] last trumpet call. For a trumpet will sound, and the dead [in Christ] will be raised imperishable (free and immune from decay), and we shall be changed (transformed).
53 For this perishable [part of us] must put on the imperishable [nature], and this mortal [part of us, this nature that is capable of dying] must put on immortality (freedom from death).
54 And when this perishable puts on the imperishable and this that was capable of dying puts on freedom from death, then shall be fulfilled the Scripture that says, Death is swallowed up (utterly vanquished [a]forever) in and unto victory.
55 O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?
57 But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory [making us conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ.
18 They told you beforehand, In the last days (in the end time) there will be scoffers [who seek to gratify their own unholy desires], following after their own ungodly passions.
19 It is these who are [agitators] setting up distinctions and causing divisions—merely sensual [creatures, carnal, worldly-minded people], devoid of the [Holy] Spirit and destitute of any higher spiritual life.
20 But you, beloved, build yourselves up [founded] on your most holy faith [[a]make progress, rise like an edifice higher and higher], praying in the Holy Spirit;
21 Guard and keep yourselves in the love of God; expect and patiently wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah)—[which will bring you] unto life eternal.
22 And refute [so as to] convict some who dispute with you, and on some have mercy who waver and doubt.
23 [Strive to] save others, snatching [them] out of [the] fire; on others take pity [but] with fear, loathing even the garment spotted by the flesh and polluted by their sensuality.
8 But as for the cowards and the ignoble and the contemptible and the cravenly lacking in courage and the cowardly submissive, and as for the unbelieving and faithless, and as for the depraved and defiled with abominations, and as for murderers and the lewd and adulterous and the practicers of magic arts and the idolaters (those who give supreme devotion to anyone or anything other than God) and all liars (those who knowingly convey untruth by word or deed)—[all of these shall have] their part in the lake that blazes with fire and brimstone. This is the second death.
The above Scriptures apply to all manner of people receiving Salvation in Christ or the opposite rejecting the Saving Grace of faith in the birth, death and bodily Resurrection of Jesus the Christ.
But for the purpose of the inspiration of these thoughts, let’s examine what the Word of God tells us about all things unnatural with the Transformists pushing acceptance of the immorality of the Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgender-Queer (LGBTQ) Agenda (my sense is “Queer” takes care of the perversions sympathetic to LGBT).
The LGBTQ perversion is so pervasive I will probably receive tons of criticism from their ungodly militant activists labeling me with the epithet of homophobe to project me as a bigot which essentially condemns my Christian faith and thus by extension criticizes the Creator of all that exists that that lifestyle an abomination (the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition uses more descriptive words to replace KJV “abomination”):
Leviticus 20: 13; Romans 1: 21, 24-28 (AMPC):
Leviticus 20: 13
13 If a man lies with a male as if he were a woman, both men have committed an offense (something perverse, unnatural, abhorrent, and detestable); they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
Romans 1: 21, 24-28
21 Because when they knew and recognized Him as God, they did not honor and glorify Him as God or give Him thanks. But instead they became futile and [a]godless in their thinking [with vain imaginings, foolish reasoning, and stupid speculations] and their senseless minds were darkened.
24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their [own] hearts to sexual impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves [abandoning them to the degrading power of sin],
25 Because they exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, Who is blessed forever! Amen (so be it).
26 For this reason God gave them over and abandoned them to vile affections and degrading passions. For their women exchanged their natural function for an unnatural and abnormal one,
27 And the men also turned from natural relations with women and were set ablaze (burning out, consumed) with lust for one another—men committing shameful acts with men and suffering in their own [a]bodies and personalities the inevitable consequences and penalty of their wrong-doing and going astray, which was [their] fitting retribution.
28 And so, since they did not see fit to acknowledge God or approve of Him or consider Him worth the knowing, God gave them over to a base and condemned mind to do things not proper or decent but loathsome,
Did you know your Public School system just might be so anti-Christian that it may punish their Christian students standing with God’s Word when offended by LGBTQ brainwashing? Lebanon High School in Ohio is punishing High School student Gabby Helsinger for plastering Bible verses by homosexual organization Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) promoting gay pride month informing readers on God’s thoughts on the homosexual lifestyle. The Lebanon High School Principal (listed as Scott Butler on the LHS website – his email: email@example.com) proceeded to suspend Helsinger. Mommy Underground has the story.

Teen Suspended For Posting Bible Verses In Response To Gay Pride Exhibit

Being in a country where we have the freedom to express ourselves is a blessing.
A luxury not many countries have, openly advocating our point of view is something people have taken to soapboxes all over the nation.
But what happens when a backward society stifles morality, while exploiting anti-family and anti-God stances?
You get people who praise the wicked, while condemning those who do good.
An Ohio high school student is feeling the brunt of skewed liberal thinking after she was suspended by the principal for expressing her faith.
Fox News reported:
“A high school student in Ohio is speaking out after she was suspended for posting Bible verses in her school in response to LGBT pride flags displayed in hallways.”
The Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) was letting Lebanon High School know that they had a presence there by hanging LGBT flags around the building.
This seemingly innocuous action, as seen by the liberal population, is far from innocent. The GSA has long been known to coerce children into becoming a part of the LGBT community, as Mommy Underground has previously reported.
Gabby Helsinger was empathetic towards all the lost kids who get caught up in the confusion of the LGBT community, so she felt led to put up Bible verses around the school after seeing all the flags.
“On Thursday when I got to school, I see that there were pride flags, posters around my school,” Gabby said in a now popular Facebook video. “And I felt the need to write down some Bible verses so I could put them around my school. And I wrote them down and I put them around the lockers, the walls.”
The video continues, explaining why she did this thoughtful act:
“Seeing that there [were] people in my school that needed help …,” said Helsinger. “They don’t need to be living in the confusion of wondering if they should be gay, bi, lesbian, trans — anything like that. And I know that God is the only way that they can be healed by that, and that’s why I did it…”
Unfortunately, that is not how Lebanon High School is seeing Helsinger’s actions, and without notice suspended her for targeting the schools GSA club.
Gabby Helsinger, a Lebanon High School student, posted a video on Facebook Friday claiming she is being punished for “targeting” the school’s Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) club.
The same day the verses were put up, sharing a little inspiration with the hopeless students at the high school, a teacher was seen by Helsinger taking the verses down.
Despite the inappropriate action taken by the teacher, and the clear bias of representation in the school, Helsinger did not engage the teacher or start any conflict.
Thinking the peaceful attempt at expressing her faith at school was over, Helsinger came to school the following day as usual.
However, she explains on Facebook how her day took a turn for the worse. She states:
“The next day, I got called to the office and there is a letter that says that I have an ISS, which is an in-school suspension, and the reason why I have it is because ‘abuse of others, disrespect, rudeness’ because I put Bible verses up ‘targeting the GSA organization,’”
This is impossible, seeing that Helsinger “did not know what the GSA organization was or meant.”
A Bible verse is not rude, disrespectful, or abusive.
Helsinger was questioned by the principal, according to her video, asking her why she did what she did, in which she replied that she wanted “to spread the word of God.”
Then the principal wanted to know if she had “permission” to put up Bible verses. She responded that she didn’t know you needed permission, because students put notes on lockers all the time.
It is wrong that this principal targeted a Bible believing student for something that is not against school policy, reprimanding her and taking away her right to express her faith.
Faithwire reports on Lebanon City School superintendent’s response to the event, stating how the school’s Code of Conduct “does not prohibit the sharing or posting of religious text or imagery at school.”
Bring your bible.org specializes in the laws that pertain to religious freedoms in public schools, and they report:
“In general, students can voluntarily express their personal and religious beliefs to their classmates through verbal or written expressions, as long as they follow school policy and do not engage in these activities during classroom or instruction time. Schools can enforce reasonable limits on times and locations for where students are allowed to distribute materials. But these regulations must be applied equally to all students. That means schools cannot impose an outright ban on religious-themed materials if they already allow students to distribute non-religious materials.”
Fox News tried to get a comment from Scott Butler, the principal who unjustly sentenced Helsinger to suspension. He simply responded:
“We do not publicly discuss the discipline of individual students. In general, when a student violates the Student Code of Conduct, there are consequences for those actions.”
But as we know, the superintendent already verified that the Code of Conduct was not broken.
Butler is not facing any repercussion that has been reported since bullying a girl for believing in something different than him.
This kind of bias and persecution of religious expression in public schools is widespread and inexcusable.
Don’t fall victim to liberal bullying, and let your state officials know when your child’s freedoms are violated.
Please let us know in the comments section if you have a child who has been targeted for believing in the Bible.
