On October 21 we attended the Lewis and Clark Library board meeting to witness the decision of the board on The Joy of Gay Sex. To no one’s surprise, the board unanimously approved the review committee’s and director’s decision to retain this vile book in the library’s active collection.
The rationale given for this decision was that the book met all the guidelines of the selection policy. My reply was that if the guidelines allow for putting such materials on the bookshelf, then they need to be changed or scrapped altogether.
How fitting a conclusion to this matter, when I initially protested this book because it openly flouted the Laws of God. Now the library board justifies its initial decision to buy the book by appealing to a corrupt law of their own making. This is an excellent illustration of the endemic evil that covers this land. Men have framed laws and conventions to nullify God’s Laws.
And one thing is certain: When the laws of men contravene the Laws of God, trouble ensues. The results that surround us today amply speak for themselves. The recent tragedies befalling the United States and other Western nations are also part of the picture and are just the beginning of woes. But how blinded people are to the reaping of evil for which they have diligently sown! That is part of the curse of choosing evil rather than doing right.

A little summary of some lies told about in the Bible, to show how you can’t judge by appearance – only by motive. Self-righteous legalism is blind and deadly, but the truth brings vision and life.
Jeff writes, "I'm desperately trying to return to God, repenting as best I know how and pursuing Him through fervent reading of the Word but I feel like He's through with me. Scriptures like Hebrews 6:1-8 paint a grim picture of hopelessness for the backslidden. Is there any reconciliation between Scriptures like "If we draw near to Him, He will draw near to us" or "you will find Me, if you seek Me with all your heart" and verses like Heb 6:1-8, which seem to describe the unpardonable sin? How can know unequivocally that he or she has committed it? Are there testimonies of persons who were truly converted returning to God after going back into a sinful life? Please respond..."
