TW: ‘Despisers of What is Good’; NAACP Endorses Same Sex Marriage


The following is from the latest TW News & Prophecy from the Living Church of God (LCG):

Despisers of what is good!
The day after North Carolina approved a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage, Barack Obama became the first U.S. President to publically endorse homosexual marriage (, May 9, 2012). His comments stirred controversy around the globe.

In a commencement address at the University of North Carolina, New York’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg condemned the state’s new legislation as a “move backwards for civil rights” (Associated Press, May 13, 2012). In Australia, President Obama’s comments emboldened one senator to chastise conservative leaders “who are still cornered by the old thinking, to move ahead themselves and catch up with the majority of Australians who feel that equal marriage is where we should be going as a nation.” In Melbourne, an Anglican cleric said that Australia’s own marriage act was discriminatory. He noted that “It’s dehumanising to tell someone their love isn’t right.” In Sydney, a Baptist pastor told his congregation (which had shifted on the issue), “There’s constant fear-mongering among some Christian conservatives and they’re trying to degrade what is essentially a desire [on the part of homosexuals] for monogamy, fidelity and the family unit&q uot; (Associated Press, May 10, 2012).

However, many “conservatives” have disagreed and condemned President Obama’s statement. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops said the President’s comments were “deeply saddening” (, May 11, 2012).

Yet, immoral behaviour continues to go mainstream. France’s newly elected President François Hollande and his domestic partner Valérie Trierweiler are now the first inaugurated couple in France NOT to be married. When asked about this, Mr. Hollande stated that marriage “is not something we do because one becomes President of the Republic. The decision is ours.” (Le Figaro, May 9, 2012). According to a new Harris Interactive poll (May 15, 2012), the majority of the French (79%) do not consider their President’s unmarried relationship to be a moral problem.

Bible prophecy has long foreseen these events. The Apostle Paul prophesied, “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers… unholy… without self-control… despisers of good… lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God” (2 Timothy 3:1-4). The prophet Isaiah also warned the time would come in the nations of Israel when people would “call evil good, and good evil” (Isaiah 5:20).

As we see these events occurring, we should remember that the Scriptures clearly state that when a nation moves away from God’s instructions, it will face grave consequences (Leviticus 18:22-28).

In a move to possibly show unity with the USA President, the National Association of Colored People (NAACP) decided to endorse homosexual marriage a few hours ago:

Fox News – ‎19 May 2012
The NAACP announced Saturday the 103-year-old black civil rights group is supporting same-sex marriage.The group’s board of directors made the decision at a meeting this weekend, saying it was a “continuation of its historic commitment to equal protection under the law.”

The decision follows President Obama’s recent support of gay marriage, a move that threatened to divide key parts of the Democratic voting base — the gay and black communities.

Sadly, sexual immorality is growing in acceptance in the Western world at least.

I believe that sexual and other forms immorality help weaken the USA, Canada, and their other Anglo-nations (Romans 1:18-32) and likely will also be a factor in them being vulnerable to invasion by the final Beast power that the Bible warns about (Revelation 13; Daniel 11:39; Isaiah 10:5-11). And while the Bible shows that the Beast power will be punished later (cf. Daniel 11:44; Isaiah 10:12), this does not mean that the Anglo-nations should not discourage sexual immorality now.
