|The Anti-Family Pink Elephant|
Mat 7:1 “Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. 3 And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? 5 Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. 6 “Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.
In Bangkok, walking along streets crowded with people and many "Tigers" (Thai Girls) parading themselves alongside, one realise that there are not many gay people. There are numerous "Go Go bars" comaprared to the few "Go Go Boys" shows which in truth may not even be entirely performed by gay people.
Some friends brought back to the hotel the "Go Go Boys" performers who were in fact not gay. The male performers had girlfriends. This is not surprising considering that the number of straight men is 10 times that of gays.
Yet, the Christian Church can have such a good eye to find the one person in the room of twenty and highlight homosexuality as the greatest sin against the family.
The Pink elephant in the room, the anti family statistics ignored by NCCS, FCBC, and Love Singapore is the divorce and abortion rates:-
No of Divorces in Singapore (by straight people)
2012, 7,237 divorces
2011, 7,604 divorces
2010, 7,338 divorces
2009, 7,280 divorces
2008, 7,134 divorces
2007, 7110 divorces
2006, 6,904 divorces
2005, 6,721 divorces
No of abortions in Singapore (by straight people)
2012, 10,624 abortions
2011, 11,940 abortions
2010, 12,082 abortions
2009, 12,318 abortions
2008, 12,222 abortions
2007, 11,933 abortions
2006, 12,032 abortions
2005, 11,482 abortions
The number of abortions is the size of a mega church each year, yet FCBC, Love Singapore, and NCCS talkes about gays being the greatest anti-family influence.
The number of abortions in 2012 in Singapore would make up 100 small sized churches of 110 attendance each.
Gays are the convenient scapegoat by the church to blame for the sins of straight people whilst not directly tackling the actual sinners in their pulpits. We becomes the best of hypocrites.
At the end, what is holy, the presence of Jesus is not given to the Jewish Pharisees who had rejected Jesus and had condemned Him as a sinner.
Therefore, the religious zealots and hypocrites, so keen on their law based self righteousness and condemning others of the smallest sins whilst not minding their dire sins of rejecting God Himself, leads to them missing out the very presence of God.
The Pharisees were the most learned biblically, the wise scribes yet missed seeing Jesus Christ the Messiah, God incarnate. They lost out. Jesus went out of the House of Galilee, to the seaside of the Gentle nations for Israel had rejected and condemned Him. The sinless was condemned as a vile sinner.
Similarly, when we become the self righteous pharisees causing grave harm and persecuting the weak minority and not seeing our own sins, we take away the presence of God, the manifestation of the power of the Holy Spirit from our midst.
Jesus was referring to the Holy Spirit, and the sin that was unforgiven against the Pharisees when they took the work of God as the work of Satan! Hence, the Holy Spirit was blasphemed. It was not forgiven because once the Holy Spirit of God leaves, He doesn't come back at our bidding and command.
There is a Pink Elephant in the room. It is not gay, it is the sin of divorce and abortion. The church has painted the elephant a pink color but one day the heavy weight of the elephant will sit on the church and block the door of God's blessings and Gospel revival in Singapore and Asia.
The presence of God, the power and the witness of the Holy Spirit is leaving the church when so much harm is done in the name of Jesus.
There is a call for God's Grace in Singapore by churches such as New Creation Church, but Grace cannot flow fully when so much blood has been spilled and injustice committed and the many suffering crying out to God due to our condemnation and denial of basic rights.
We can't be free ourselves, when we keep slaves in prisons to be condemned for our own sins and gave them little rights. When they are finally free, they would demand compensation against us in God's throne room.
