Earlier this year the The Boston Globe profiled notorious anti-gay activist Scott Lively and reported that he was going to be “toning down his antigay rhetoric and shifting his focus to helping the downtrodden.”
Needless to say, this “kinder and gentler” Scott Lively was rather short-lived … so it is no surprise that he is now writing pieces that are literally titled “‘Gay Marriage’ as a Sign of the End Times“:
God has chosen rampant homosexuality to be a key warning sign for judgment of the world as a whole, and not just of individual nations … I have made this point before, but it bears repeating. I am 53 years old. When I was born homosexuality was illegal throughout the entire world. In the space of just half a century this tiny 1-3% of the population have made themselves a global political power with greater influence in the courtrooms and legislatures of the world than the Church of Jesus Christ. This astonishing transformation surpasses that of Darwinism, Marxism, and even Islam in its speed and breadth of reach. To my thinking, this can only have been accomplished by the god of this world (Satan 2 Cor 4:4) who knows his time is short and is making his move. What is more alarming is the shocking apathy of the church, which I take as a sign of the apostasy warned about by Jesus in Matt 24:12. The “love of most” for the truth of God truly has grown cold.
Recently the State of New York legalized “gay marriage,” just in time for the “Gay Pride Parade” (that included many of NYC’s political elites), and for the first time, the United Nations officially declared homosexuality a “human right.” I am finding triumphal emails in my in-box from homosexual activists, gloating over their latest victory. In the past I would have found these irritating, but now they simply confirm my impression that the time is very short. I believe it is the same triumphalism described in Revelation 11:7-10 upon the murder of God’s two witnesses: “When they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up out of the abyss will make war with them, and overcome them and kill them. And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which mystically is called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified…And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them and celebrate; and they will send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth.” Why is the great city (Jerusalem) mystically called Sodom in the final days? I think because of the centrality of the spirit of sexual perversion in the Anti-Christ system. What “torments” worldly people? The simple truths of God.
