Don’t Rain On Our Pride Parade!

2 Peter 2:7 “And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:”

2 Peter 2:8 “ (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)”

Seeing as “World Pride” is happening in my country at the moment, it’s a good time to revisit the story of Lot in the Bible. He was a man who lived in the city of Sodom, where a whole lot of “pride” was going on.

Sodom was a real place. You can go there and see where it was, down near the south of the salt sea, and you yourself can view the ashes and desolation that remains of it to this day since God overthrew it.

Back then, the money flowed in Sodom… just like it is flowing in Sydney as the government and businesses rejoice at the financial windfall that the hundreds of thousands of tourists have brought to the city “the love of money is the root of all evil.”

In our country, sodomy used to be illegal. But now we are at the point where it is pretty near illegal “hate speech” to even politely disagree, let alone call sodomy wicked according to the Bible.

A lot of people talk about encouraging and embracing different opinions… until someone has a different opinion, particularly from God’s word. And it’s fine to rail on Christians and use Jesus Christ’s name as a swear word, but don’t say a bad word about these guys!

But it is not hate to tell people what the Bible says. The Bible says God is love. If they are ungodly, and they are, then that means that what they have is not love, despite what they say.

Furthermore, the Bible says that love fulfills the law of God. But the Bible calls the deeds of Sodom “unlawful”, once again proving that what they have is not love. Burned in lust towards each other, yes.

The Bible calls them “abusers of themselves with mankind”, because first and foremost it is self abuse before it ever falls out to abusing others. If you’re in it, it’s not good for you or others, and is damaging physically, emotionally and spiritually.

They celebrate pride, but since when is pride a virtue? Pride is a horrible characteristic in the nature of man. And the Bible speaks of a king over all the children of pride in Job 41, find out for yourself who that is.

The reason why they call it pride is because they are openly showing they are not ashamed of what they do. But that is proof they know the law of God and that it’s shameful. When you do right there’s nothing to be ashamed of, because doing right is not shameful, hence you do not have to prove you’re not ashamed when you do right.

By the way, it doesn’t matter if it’s been legalized or not. The Bible calls it unlawful. Because God’s law is above man’s law. Remember, acts of sodomy were totally legal in Sodom, but it never made it right.

Notice that the Bible says Lot was “vexed”. How the LGBTQI movement got so many people to accept them was through destigmatizing, desensitizing and “normalizing” themselves to you. You got conditioned and educated to tolerate, accept and then defend it through years of continual bombardment from their media.

In the book of Judges, Israel had a civil war over the issue of sodomy. A lot of people died to defend men who had raped and sodomized a woman all night because they couldn’t rape the man they wanted.

Their movement preaches peace, love and tolerance, but if you oppose it, they won’t be that to you. Lot found that out, because for all of his “sucking up” to them, when he rebuked them for “going too far”, that is, beyond his personal moral line, they would’ve thanklessly raped him in the street if the angels sent to destroy Sodom had not rescued him.

I called this blog “don’t rain on our pride parade”, perhaps you’ve heard the saying “raining on someone’s parade”, which is said when someone ruins someone’s plans, fun or pleasure. Well, God rained on the pride parade back in Lot’s day “Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven;”

I don’t wish evil on you, I would rather see you saved, and we are not to preach on sin without preaching salvation, which is that God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. I don’t know where you are at in life, but Jesus Christ died on the cross for YOU. He came to save YOU. Nobody is above salvation, and nobody is beneath it.

We are all sinners, we all need to repent, and we all need be saved “except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish”. If that rains on your parade, well sorry… but not sorry… because it’s the truth. I haven’t damaged you, you and your buddies are damaging you, not the one pointing you to Jesus Christ. You’ve gotta love the truth more than you love your sin! God is for you, choose life, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ to save you from your sins!

Hi, my name is Joseph Zadow. I am a 30 y/o Bible Blogger. I was new to blogging once! God’s word is the best thing that we can be given, and once we have it and know it for ourselves it is both a privilege and responsibility to bring it to others! We are blessed to be a blessing! I am a sinner (for sure!) saved by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ and I am a Lord Jesus Christ follower. He is faithful even though I rarely am to him. I believe the Bible is the word of God, and stake my life on it. My destination is heaven. As they say, I’m just a passin’ through this world… although most of the time it’s more like hangin’ by a thread in Jericho! I love playing sports – particularly cricket… I currently work on an orchard and a side hobby business of mine is growing vegetables etc – they are good for you! I love writing. Always happy to talk, so feel free to leave a comment. You can read more about me and my blog here – :)
