The Dalles Sign of the times
To the editor:
I am responding to the letter in the Jan. 31 issue concerning guns and murders.
This is the only nation on earth founded on the word of God. We held the Word in very high esteem. Our laws were written accordingly. We were a body where the truth of the Word was respected. Not so today.
The Bible says there will be a falling away from the faith in the last days. Our states are passing laws that are contrary to God’s will. We are paying the price of rejecting the God of Creation; 2 Timothy 3 says in the last days (today for us) mankind will be lovers of themselves, blasphemers, disobedient to parents (authority), unthankful, unholy despisers of those that are good, false accusers, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God, plus much more. Read it yourself. That is today!
It also says we will be as Sodom was, Gen 18, 19 – learn. When we walk away from God, ungodly spirits move in and control. It also says the day would come when evil is called good and good is called evil. Today in Canada if a preacher teaches what God says about homosexuality, they will put you in jail. Things are heading that way here.
People love to blaspheme God. Homosexuals will on day control things and we’ll have to bow to their demands.
Read the following: Tel Aviv voted the best gay city of 2011 on the LGBT website; gay couple receives congrats from Obama for their wedding, home schoolers can’t be taught gay sex is sinful, LGBT lawyers sue pastor for crimes against humanity, Obama says he supports same-sex marriage (so much for the hand on the Bible stuff), federal judge finds Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional, appeals court strikes down Defense of Marriage Act, Pentagon holds first gay pride event, chaplains can’t pray in Jesus’ name, Muslims can probably pray in Allah’s name.
I believe our serious weather issues – Sandy – is a warning from God. We as a nation are paying the price for rebellion. We are a long way from where we started.
Passing gun laws will not stop what’s happening. It will only diminish our rights and promote dictatorship. Rejecting God has always resulted in depraved criminal minds. Look at prisons, druggies.
Jesus is our friend. Rejecting Him continually – chaos. Your choice is important – think.
