“My People Perish for lack of Knowledge “(Hosea 4:6) was placed on my heart this morning.
I believe it all started when I was considering my life….looking back on what I have done – both good and bad. What struck me was the correlation between “The Tree of Life” in the garden of Eden and the “Ten Commandments”.
This makes sense. God told Adam and Eve that they could eat from any of the fruit in the garden except for one tree…“You are free to eat from any of the trees of the garden except the tree of knowledge of good and bad. From that tree you shall not eat; the moment you eat from it you are surely doomed to die” (Genesis 2:16-17).
What did God tell us:
15 See, I have set before you today life and prosperity, death and adversity. 16 If you obey the commandments of the Lord your God[a] that I am commanding you today, by loving the Lord your God, walking in his ways, and observing his commandments, decrees, and ordinances, then you shall live and become numerous, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land that you are entering to possess. 17 But if your heart turns away and you do not hear, but are led astray to bow down to other gods and serve them, 18 I declare to you today that you shall perish; you shall not live long in the land that you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess. 19 I call heaven and earth to witness against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Choose life so that you and your descendants may live, 20 loving the Lord your God, obeying him, and holding fast to him; for that means life to you and length of days, so that you may live in the land that the Lord swore to give to your ancestors, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. (Deuteronomy 30:15-20)
These words are by all accounts the same thing as the words spoken to Adam and Eve. He warned them that if they should disobey him, they would perish. God spoke the same words to Moses to give to the Israelites. Those words are for us today as well. Hence, God said: “My people perish for lack of knowledge”.
What I want to talk about here are several things that we as a society are perishing simply because of our disobedience to the Lords Commandments. Adam and Eve were thrown out of the Garden of Eden because of disobedience and what resulted was sickness, death and hardships- precisely because of sin.
We too, have lost our prosperity and unity as a nation because of allowing grave sins to enter into our culture. We are literally fighting a cultural civil war. You have those on the one side demanding sinful laws while the other side is fighting to bring back our nation to a Godly Nation – one that is in obedience to the Lord.
This isn’t about President Trump, the man. Rather, it is about President Trump trying to turn the tide. The liberals are fiercely trying to protect their unlawful laws – They are in great fear of losing the war in this cultural battle. Satan is leading them, and God is leading those who are trying to fight against sinful laws.
Many of those unlawful laws have to do with sexual orientation. Same Sex Marriage, Homosexuality, Transgenderism, Abortion, Contraception, etc. For years now I have heard the argument that Homosexuality is a result of these individuals “being born that way”. This would of course mean that it is inherent in their genes. If they can prove this then of course, who could argue against them? That however is the problem (for them).
There have been numerous studies on this subject and I would like to link you to some of the evidence by Science which concludes that there is no such thing as a “Homosexual Gene”.
Mutable or Immutable?
ROBERT R. REILLY
homosexualScience has been enlisted to de-pathologize homosexuality in so far as it can lend credence to the assertion that homosexuality is an immutable condition. The immutability issue is as irrelevant to the moral nature of homosexual behavior as it is to alcoholic behavior. Alcoholics, by definition, are alcoholics for life. If they wish to remain sober, they may never drink again. (Article can be found here.)
Are Gays Born that Way?Most Americans now say yes, but Science says No

My Earlier article: Homosexuality in Genes and in Animals?
PRINCETON, NJ, May 20, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) — For the first time, a majority of Americans say that homosexuals are “born that way.
According to the latest Gallup poll, 51 percent of Americans say that people are born gay or lesbian, while only 30 percent say outside factors such as upbringing and environment determine sexual orientation.
However, science would not bear that out. No fewer than eight major studies from around the world have found homosexuality is not a genetic condition. (More here)
I would like to direct you to an excellent article “The New Intolerance”
The truth shall set us free if we but take an honest look at ourselves and our beliefs. God is trying very hard to set us free from all of our false beliefs. Many times we need these beliefs because we need to justify ourselves. But that only puts us in chains. Let God show you where you may have it wrong….I am doing the same. The Truth will bring us back to a Godly life, happiness, prosperity and unity.
