Sovereign or not?

The Bible defines God as the absolute creator, ruler of the universe, and all that is in it. Obviously, that is not the way Congress views God. For example, the House of Representatives just passed legislation which protects those who participate in homosexual acts from various acts of discrimination in jobs and housing. One congressman said that discrimination against homosexuals was “wrong, wrong, not right.”

This congressman and others who agree with him obviously disagree with God.
1 Cor. 6:9-10 says, “Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders, nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.” Reading that scripture one can see that people who condone and practice certain behaviors, including homosexuality, will not be allowed in the kingdom of God. The truth is, God discriminates against behavior He designates as sin.

The Bible is clear that there will be a day of reckoning when unrepentant men and women will be judged for their rebellion against God. On that day, it will be too late to appeal because the offenders rejected the only mediator, Jesus Christ.
