Knowing that this may offend some, I am compelled to make this clear. The biggest loser in the NSA spying issue is the church and they are the most asleep
. I wrote about this from two perspectives:
“Snowden’s deeds should shame the passive Christian
“Nazi America and the Lethargic Church
Romans 1 shows that homosexuality is not the cause of the Lord’s displeasure, but the result of the church’s unrighteousness. We see it growing in our nation because of the unrighteousness in the church. While I stand with others in the privacy fight, it is remarkable to me that many of the key players, Manning, Greenwald, Appelbaum, are homosexuals, and most of the rest, Assange, Snowden, are known for casual relationships. The church is the one who will pay the highest price for the loss of privacy, but it seems they don’t rally around the issue or their own.
Just as the Christian, the Muslim, the Democrat, the Republican, and the homosexual use the same roads, eat similar food, use the same kind of computers on a shared Internet, we must work together with them for our mutual benefit. This is common grace. We must stand with others of differing views on common roads and common issues like privacy. We can contend on other issues in other ways. The church needs to open their eyes to the privacy issue and not run from it because it is being championed by homosexuals.
The Christian should be able to hold up an “I am Bradley Manning
) sign to stand with the man our government tortured while not endorsing his homosexuality.
