Support for Same-Sex Marriage Hits Record High in US

WEB Notes: Whether you realize it or not this is a major deal. I believe the Supreme Court is going to rule in favor of homosexual marriage and now 60% of the country is okay with the idea of  homosexual marriage, an idea that is rejected by our Father. Remember, supposedly 75-80% of our country is Christian. This means a lot of Christians are accepting of this as well. I want you all to think very carefully. Is God okay with this type of behavior? No matter how you feel or how much you have been conditioned, open your Father’s Letter and check it out with Him before you decide because I will tell you this type of behavior is not only contrary to God’s Word it brings heavy punishment… Turn your Bible with me to,

2 Peter 2:1-2
1 “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.”
