An Abomination – John MacArthur

Previously in the post Where is Sodom? there was some discussion about abominations. Here is John MacArthur explaining abomination and what that includes.

Thus, homosexuality is viewed in Leviticus as morally equal to sins such as adultery, incest, and bestiality. As noted earlier, such sins are wrong in any age and in any culture, because they violate the design for marriage that God established at creation.

God’s utter hatred for homosexual behavior is brought home by the word “abomination,” which describes what God thinks of it, and any other violation of His intended plan for heterosexual marriage. The word occurs repeatedly in this context (Lev 18:22, 26, 27, 29, 30; 20:13) and is also “a term especially frequent in the Book of Deuteronomy, [which] refers to an act that is abhorrent or repugnant, such as idolatry and inappropriate worship of God (see Deut 7:25; 27:15; 17:10; 12:31; 18:9-14).”

In the same way that idolatry is a perpetual offense to God’s moral character, subject to His wrath and condemnation, so also is any perversion of His design for marriage.

So using this explanation divorce, adultery, idolatry, homosexuality, worshiping a false god, or even worshiping our own made up Jesus can be considered an abomination to the Lord.  We need to be careful to not think we ourselves have not committed an abomination to the Lord while labeling others as abominable in His sight.  Inappropriate worship of God can cover a huge area.

Another Very Good Reason to Homeschool

A field trip worth forgetting by Kelly Boggs at Baptist Press

On Oct. 10, a group of first-grade students from the Creative Arts Charter School in San Francisco took what the San Francisco Chronicle termed “an unusual field trip.” Eighteen children traveled to city hall to celebrate the nuptials of their lesbian teacher to her partner. The children tossed rose petals and blew bubbles following the “gay marriage” ceremony officiated by San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom.

Liz Jaroslow, the school’s interim director, justified the academic value of the trip by saying, “It is what we call a teachable moment,” the Chronicle reported. She went on to cite the historical significance of “gay marriage” as it relates to civil rights. “I think I am well within my parameters,” she said.

If they are teaching about “gay rights” in the first grade, then things have changed dramatically since I attended.

School Field Trip to Teacher’s Lesbian Wedding Sparks Controversy

“It’s just utterly unreasonable that a public school field trip would be to a same-sex wedding,” said Chip White, press secretary for the Yes on 8 campaign, told the Chronicle. “This is overt indoctrination of children who are too young to have an understanding of its purpose.”
