When "Rights" Are Wrong

I live in a free country. Like all Canadians, as well as all of you who are citizens of other free countries, I can do what I want, go where I want, say what I want, and practice my religion any way that I want, all within the legislated parameters of the laws (that, as a law-abiding citizen, I agree with and support) of this nation. Part of the reason that we have that freedom is because, like citizens of all free countries, everyone has specific legal rights that no other citizen may lawfully obstruct or interfere with. Everyone is equal under and before the law. While "minorities" exist here, just as they do in most other countries, they live with the same rights to peace and security as everyone else. Those of us who were fortunate enough to have been born, or who live, in the democratic free countries of this world enjoy these blessings of freedom whenever "rights" are right.

When "Rights" Are Wrong

Occasionally, special interest "minority" groups somehow manage to get laws passed that serve them well, but at the unjust expense of the freedom of their fellow citizens who are in the majority. In my opinion, a blatant example of that is a new law in this country, Bill C-250, that was sponsored by a homosexual member of Parliament, that could, in effect, be used to turn parts of the Holy Bible into illegal "hate literature" because God plainly and consistently condemns sodomite behavior.

The Holy Scriptures How far the anti-Bible enforcement of this new law will be interpreted or taken is yet to be seen (if the law survives the Supreme Court challenge to it that will surely come from one of its first victims), however I personally regard it as a serious potential threat to both freedom of speech and freedom of religion in this country. I don't fear it; I fear only Almighty God, and because of that I have no intention of being dictated to, by anyone, ever, about what I can or cannot publish on Daily Bible Study out of The Holy Bible.

I am very concerned however that it has the potential of bringing God's wrath upon any authorities who may find themselves given the task of prosecuting God's people and servants for the "crime" of preaching and teaching nothing more than exactly what the Holy Bible says (if brought to trial, will they be handed a Bible as they enter the witness stand, upon which they will swear to "tell the Truth, the whole Truth, and nothing but the Truth" - and then be prosecuted for actually believing and teaching what that very same Bible says?). God protects His servants during their time of service to Him (they themselves need not do anything what-so-ever), and knowing that, I would not want to see God's vengeful wrath being brought down upon the Government or the Police of the country that I love. But it will surely happen if that line is crossed.

In fairness to the homosexual member of Parliament, I do agree that homosexuals should not be in any way harmed simply because they are homosexuals. Part of the reason that the homosexual member of Parliament sponsored the law was in response to the beating to death of a young homosexual man by a gang of "homophobic" men (the use of the term "homophobic," meaning "fear of homosexuals," by homosexuals against those who find their unnatural habits repulsive is not accurate; I don't know of anyone in this country who fears homosexuals). Just as God says that sodomy is evil, God also says that it is evil to commit murder, of anyone. Violence, or lethal force, against anyone, is only legally justifiable, in the eyes of God, as a matter of lawful defense.

The greatest irony of this potential gag law (and make no mistake, that is exactly what it's intended to be) is that it does homosexuals themselves tremendous harm. The Holy Bible is not hate literature, it is Truth. The responsibility of God's servants is to preach and teach the Truth, God's Truth, from God's Word, which is exactly what they have always done, and always will do. During the time of the New Testament record, some homosexuals heeded the Word of God, they repented, just as others did of other kinds of grievous sin, and they became true Christians. They couldn't have done that if they never had the opportunity to hear what the Bible actually says because of some law that didn't permit the preaching of the Word of God.

"Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the Kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the Name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God." (1 Corinthians 6:9-11 KJV)

The Word of God isn't "hate literature," it's love literature for all who repent of evil behavior, in all of its many forms. If you are a homosexual, or a homosexual politician, don't try to put a gag on God's servants, they cannot, and will not, be silenced by anyone. For every one that falls, another will rise with greater power to carry on. God will see to that. Listen to them, and repent of what you yourself know is a very wrong and a very degrading way to live.

The door of salvation is open to everyone who repents, and God's Judgment and the lake of fire awaits all who don't. The choice is yours.
