We’re all familiar with the Garden of Eden story where our Great Grand Mom, Eve, left her husband’s side and had this discussion she shouldn’t have had, and then proceeded to enjoy a meal she shouldn’t have eaten. She brings her doggie-bag home, as a dutiful wife and shows her husband, our Great Grand Dad, and after munching on the leftovers, and when challenged regarding the payment for the food, tells God when questioned,
“And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.” Gen 3:12 (KJV)
Couldn’t accept the responsibility himself for his own action. Such is occurring today in a big way. The first involves women’s involvement in the church: “Women’s Ordination”.
No matter which side of the fence you stand what must be understood: Truth is the truth. There is no argument which could be made for the ordination of women as pastors and elders within the Body of Christ. All historical markers of those denominations which have done so have shown a marked decline in blessings and number of membership. God can’t bless what He has not ordained. Duh!
How are women going to be blamed again? Okay, I’m going to have to step out on a limb here by revealing some of my own history, but if it can go to make a point, so be it.
From my early years, I’m talking about eleven or so, I was caught up in pornography. I’m a young man, my hormones were being developed, or some would say, overly-developed and I enjoyed watching the female form. Didn’t take much in those days, even one wearing a bathing suit would suffice. Then, about that same age while walking through the woods near my home in Cleveland, I found a cache of pornographic magazines. Now, what was interesting regarding them was something not even heard of at the tender age, during a time of innocence and this was watching two women involved! That was different and exciting and acceptable.
When I got to the age where I could go into adult theaters, I can admit to enjoying it and not repulsed by seeing two women, in fact, as the saying goes, it’s a fantasy for a man to have two women at one time. There became an acceptance of such and as lust and sin goes, it opens the door for other depraved activity, hence, male homosexuality. Now, THIS repulsed me and found no acceptance. In fact, again an admission, in my early 30’s, I visited “Show World Palace” on 42nd Street in the theater district, and watched a beautiful woman performed and became sick as many others where when her last piece of garment fell revealing the same plumbing all of us guys had! It was obvious the repulsion as MOST of us got up out of our seat and headed for the door. I overheard one girl speaking to “it”, obviously a guy, “I told you not to do that!”
But, depravity knows no boundary. What is done covertly eventually finds acceptance and done in the light. Once male homosexuality got the “go ahead”, and no longer received the stigma associated because most men would find no problem in women being involved, so perhaps it is fine for women to see two men would go the theory.
Pornography has done an injustice to the morass of the American culture. No wonder countries like in the Middle East and China forbid it being openly displayed and want nothing to do with the proliferation for fear their societies will become infected, like the disease it is, and now what is the end result: homosexual marriages. Any man, if willing to admit, will tell you their first exposure is having seen “two women” going at it. Today on cable television, to see two women acting seductively has now become commonplace. I can’t tell you about men because my television viewing is pretty much limited to watching the news, which is disgusting enough. Our children are being indoctrinated into thinking as long as there is “love” between two individuals, doesn’t matter if it is a man to woman, it is okay. This is wrong! And because God is in the business of protecting children, it won’t be much longer before He says, “It is finished” and rescues them from the mess which we have found ourselves as a society.
I don’t blame Eve for my problems and unlike Adam I’ll accept my responsibility. It is by doing so can anyone, homosexual, transgender and even heterosexual are able to overcome any and every problem with plagues us as individuals or an open society. The devil works in degrees and as long as he finds men and women susceptible, there is no limit how far this mess, this sin, will (de)generate.
I’m just saying…
