As Christians we know that it is not proper to sin and live unholy lives. The Bible tells us that if we sin we move against Gods standards and should seek forgiveness and transformation that leads to change empowered by the Lord.
In Australia at the moment a man called Israel Folau has taken the country by storm. He is arguably the greatest Rugby player of all time and he is also a Christian. A month ago, he placed a Bible verse on his social media account explaining that if people don’t repent they will go to Hell. In the Bible verse was the peoples of homosexual background.

He was quickly sacked by Rugby Australia and is now heading to court for Australia’s most prominent court battle over religious freedoms. Religious freedom has never been fully tested in Australia and people quickly donated to his legal defence which could stray into the millions.

Why would the Bible class and categorise homosexual people with the liars and murders? Because to state that they will go to Hell along with many other groups of people says they are bad people headed for the worst kind of punishment.
In a western world where it is now illegal to discriminate against most people groups who are protected by law there is a push to change the moral code of society and say what used to be bad is now good.
If this trend continues then it will be illegal to preach about a God with a moral code and that he forgives sins because there are no sins to forgive.

Many anti Christians or new age progressive so-called Christians think Paul the Apostle was a bigot. Not only do they think he oppressed certain people groups but many things taught are now out of date and no longer applicable.
An example of this can be found in California: A bill seeking to be passed -ACR-99 Civil rights: lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender people. (2019-2020). This bill seeks to force Churches, pastors, schools and universities and all of society to acknowledge with conviction that homosexuality is morally ok along with being transgender or no gender. They realise the only way to pass such a Bill is to change society and get the backing of Churches and universities and schools.

If such a law was passed they could forcefully consider in rewriting the Bible or updating it so people groups and no longer morally unethical and ethics and values solely belong to the government.
Getting back to why the Apostles including Peter, James, John and Paul and even Jude wrote about the consequences of sin is most important. They also used people groups, stories and the beginning of time to explain that not only is sin wrong but those who rebel against God will end up with people they never thought they would in Hell.

Ultimately Satan is saying through these people that good people don’t go to Hell and the Bible is old and out of date. That its not popular to believe in the Bible anymore because it points to a God who is still in control and will come again for the last time.
John predicts as do the Apostles the end and their destruction in Revelation 21:8 NIV
“But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur.

A close look at this verse explains that all of society who rebels against Jesus will be condemned. The good unbelieving people go in with the murders. However, the Bible also says that the Satan, Death, Hades and the Antichrist go in it too.
For those looking to erase a God whose values are not popular only get a small span of existence then they meet their end and those faithful to God are resurrected to eternal life.
It's not worth eternity to reject Jesus and his Apostles.

Hey mate....afternoon from just west of Penrith......down for three weeks.......the assault against the truth is an ongoing event that started with the serpent questioning God's word in the garden....and for sure as time draws closer to the end of the age the bible will be fully assaulted, the truth will be made void by the laws and traditions of men and believers will be ostracized, jailed, beaten, killed etc. for the sake of the truth.....contrary to popular belief in this magical immiment return where we all go POOF and everyone wonders where we went.....the bible states clearly that the beast/little horn will make war against, wear out and overcome the saints of God. Men love darkness and that is exactly what God is going to give them in the kingdom of the beast.

Think about this truth....people can hammer Christianity all day long with no consequence.....but if we stand and lay the truth bare like this footy player....all hell breaks loose and we get labeled, arrested, sued etc.......

The end is near..........

Thats kinda weird all the furore over Israel Folau in australia just cos hes a rugby player.
Anyone else speaks out they wont be noticed, but if a rugby player does its like no hes not allowed, he just has to play rugby and as long as he wins for his nation, thats all he has to do.

Rugby is idolised in australia, and players are treated like gods, so for a rugby player to acknowledge someone other than himself as god, I think in many peoples minds thats just too hard for them to handle!

We are fast approaching the time when the Antichrist will take full control of the world and it will be illegal to be a Christian. Indeed genuine Christians will be executed for their faith.

The Western world (including Australia) has turned its back on God and become a pawn in the hands of the devil. That is why the Muslim world despises the *infidels* and calls America "the Great Satan".

no it isn't!

I'm Canadian but married to an American and living in the US

it is already that way in Canada. it is against the law to preach against homosexuality

so we have laws that support sin and will put a godly person in jail

what you write is definitely a litmus test for freedom of speech and freedom to express what you hold as truth

the homosexuals certainly have that freedom
