TRENDING:

Days Of Lot: The Floodgates Of Moral Pollution Have Been Thrown Wide Open

Mark Hitchcock

It’s a flashing sign of the times that the days of Lot are upon us. “Gay Pride Month” now seems like every month, and this scourge upon our nation is being celebrated and pushed to an extreme degree. 

Some saddening statistics have recently come out about what’s happening in our country. The statistics say a record 7.2% of US adults here in America are non-binary, transgender, or same-sex attracted, with some believing the number to be as high as 10%.

These are staggering and shocking numbers about the moral pollution in our society.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, in 2019, signed a law implanting LGBTQ inclusive curriculum in the state in grades five to twelve. They were the second state, after California, to do this. Since that time, the number of self-identifying non-binary students in New Jersey is up 4,000%.

In the 2019-2020 school year, there were 16 students in New Jersey that identified as non-binary. In 2022-2023, it skyrocketed to 675 students, 41 of which are in elementary school.

It was reported that 40% of students at Brown University, an Ivy League school in Rhode Island, identify as LGBTQ, which is double from the year 2020 and almost triple from 2010 when the number sat at 14%.

Here’s another statistic that is stunning to me. 30% of Millennials, those born from 1984 to 2002 (the era of my two sons and daughters-in-law), self-identify as non-binary. It gets even worse. In Gen Z, which is those born around the year 2000 and beyond, 40% identify as non-binary.

Now listen to this. 30% of young professing Christians, according to the study, identify as LGBTQ. I say “professing Christians” because, obviously, many of them are not genuine believers and don’t understand what the Bible says. 

Those studies reveal what we see happening in our culture today—the floodgates have been thrown wide open.

A Social, Psychological, & Spiritual Battle

Why is this happening? Well, I think there are several reasons, including psychological and social explanations, but ultimately, there’s a spiritual force behind this, and that is Satan himself. Satan is striking the heart of humanity.

Human beings are made in God’s image. We’re the crown of God’s creation, and Satan wants to do all he can to mar the image of God and humanity. He did it dramatically in the fall (Genesis 2), and since that time, he’s been trying to twist God’s creation.

People are rebelling against God, which is where it ultimately started. It’s self-worship. It’s the cult of self, where an individual determines their morality, their gender, and their sexual preference, and not God. 

There’s an element here of what I would call “social contagion” passed from one person to another. So many young people today don’t have any hope, meaning, or purpose in their lives. They’re seeking a community, and many are seeking attention. In this victim group, they can be welcomed in and get that attention, which is drawing many people to this movement.

The problem is, it’s not really an issue of their body; rather, it is more an issue of their mind and soul. Once entering this movement, they ultimately find that it also doesn’t bring hope, joy, purpose, and meaning. Some undergo radical surgeries that have changed them, and they’re plunged into even deeper distress.

Ray Stedman, a well-known pastor from California, said years ago, “When people forsake God, they lose the sense of their own worth.” As a culture today, we’ve lost God, and as a result, people have lost themselves and are trying to find something to give meaning and purpose.

Homosexuality — Strickly An Old Testament Sin?

Many people today will argue that Jesus Himself never decried or denounced the sin of same-sex marriage or homosexuality. However, Jesus came to fulfill the Law and the Prophets, and it was stated clearly in the Old Testament. Jesus mentions Sodom and Gomorrah three times. If you go back to Genesis 19, it’s clear why those cities are destroyed. 

Jesus said in Luke 17:26-29, “As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man… Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot… the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.” 

When God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, He couldn’t find ten righteous people to cause Him to hold back the destruction. They were totally given over to evil, wickedness, and abomination.

Elsewhere in the New Testament, 1 Timothy 1:9-10 states that the law is “for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, for whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind [those practicing homosexuality], for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons…”

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 mentions those who will not inherit the kingdom of God. Included in that list is a translation of two Greek words that refer to homosexuality.

Romans 1:18-32 warns that when people abandon God, He will ultimately abandon them, giving them over to their own sin. The chapter goes on to talk about a sexual revolution, and then it discusses a homosexual revolution.

Romans one is not saying that when you see these things, God will judge a culture or a nation. Rather, it explains that when these things are in abundance like we see today, it’s the sign that God is already judging, abandoning, and removing his protection and restraint. Three times in Romans one it says, “God gave them over.”

Romans 1:26-28 KJV – “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;”

Romans 1:32 KJV – “Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”

Today, we want to accept all people because everyone is made in the image of God. But there’s a difference between accepting people and approving/applauding what they do.

Collapsing Under The Weight Of Our Own Sin

What we see in our culture today is evidence that God is abandoning our nation to our own sinfulness. This could be a reason why we don’t see America mentioned in the end times and in prophecy. We are collapsing under the weight of our own sin.

It’s also more than something we see socially that’s sinful and contrary to God’s ways. It’s a flashing sign of the times that the days of Lot are upon us. If these statistics I’ve listed aren’t a sign of that, I don’t know what possibly could be. I don’t see how it can get much worse in our country. 

May God help us. We need to pray for our country and to do all that we can to try to stem this contagion. As the Church of Jesus Christ, we are the only restraint that exists in our world today from this completely overtaking our culture.
