As time progresses, the push for worship of the true living God is on trial. They want to get rid of God in every area of life. When you read the PDF, it talks about religion, freedom of religion, and the LGBT. The UN, along with others, believes they are the ones to define the position of religion. This includes true Christianity. What is their agenda for religion?
Their agenda focuses on 4 topics:
- Sexual diversity and religious freedom can coexist
- Violence and discrimination in the name of religion or belief
- Indirect Discrimination in the name of religion
- Access to spirituality for LGBT persons
In the PDF, they break down what they want to achieve around the world. Below, we will add each topic, their conclusion and what the bible says.
Your Sexual Choice is to be Accepted by All Religions
On the first topic, they want people to believe that there is no absolute right or wrong. The viewpoint is that religion should be versatile to their beliefs. Therefore, they want all religious people to accept and coexist with their sexual choices. The first topic is “Sexual diversity and religious freedom can coexist.”
How did they come to this conclusion?
“As an unified paradigm, religion does not have essential inbuilt positions or prejudices, and it would make no sense to characterize it as inherently or predominantly pro- or con- LGBT.”
unified = formed or united into a whole by Webster-Dictionary
paradigm = An example; a model; a pattern by Webster-Dictionary
essential = n. 1. Existence; being. 2. That which is essential; first or constituent principle; as, the essentials of religion. by Webster-Dictionary
What are they saying?
They are saying that, being unified, they are an example that religion does not have an absolute built in position concerning this. Nor does it have a determined leaning for or against the LGBT. They want you to believe that God does not have an absolute, unmoving thought towards this movement. This may apply to false religions, but not to true believers. God is very clear on this subject. He states plainly that this whole movement is sinful. And it carries an eternal payment.
How are they going to deal with the truth?
“States have a duty to create “an enabling environment” where dissenters, dissidents, progressive reformers, and activists are protected against violence and harmful practices from the large religious community.”
The true church of Christ will tell the truth about sin. Believers know the truth is hated and offensive to sinners. The gospel is becoming increasingly seen as hate speech.
Religion is Violent, Discriminating and Aggressive
In the second topic, they focus on the word violence in relation to religion. They have a picture of a person pointing their finger and expressing their negative emotions towards this person. The next topic is about “Violence and discrimination in the name of religion.”
“Religion should not be used as an excuse for autocratic practices and denial of basic rights.”
autocratic = offensively self-assured or given to exercising usually unwarranted power; “an autocratic person”; “autocratic behavior”; “a bossy way of ordering others around”; “a rather aggressive and dominating character”; “managed the employees in an aloof magisterial way”; “a swaggering peremptory manner” by Webster-Dictionary
“Many submissions received by the mandate raise concerns about religious leaders fueling disinformation, hate speech, and/or intolerance against LGBT persons, such as scapegoating them for controversies, positing them as a threat to the traditional family, and interpreting religious doctrines to place homosexuality and gender nonconformity within a discourse of immorality and sin.”
This subject alone can be an entire bible study on its own. However, we will get to the point. The point is, this is not true, Christ came to save ALL SINNERS, including you. The bible says we have ALL fallen short of the Glory of God. No one is good, and the only thing we have to offer Jesus is our sin. Therefore, Christianity is not a religion used to boss people around. In fact, Christianity is not a religion. It is a personal relationship of deep love, devotion, and respect for the true living God and His Son.
Religion is Getting In Their Way
True bible believing Christians are getting in the way of unbelievers. As believers in Christ, we believe in the whole counsel of God from Genesis to Revelation. One of them is a family consisting of one biological male and one biological female. This next topic discusses “Indirect Discrimination in the name of religion.”
“By contrast, in states that have moved to prescribed same sex marriage, it is the influence of religious narratives in politics that has remained the authoritative feature, rather than the adherence to human rights norms in law.”
Mankind has wanted to bring God down to their level from the beginning. This agenda is not normal, nor is it a right. The UN and others want to be God. But true believers are getting in their way.
“Religious exemptions are often used as protection for healthcare providers’ “conscientious objections” to provide services that go against their convictions, including abortion services, and hormonal and other similar treatments.”
Correct; as believers, we must obey God and not man. You serve whom you want to serve, but I will obey the Lord (Acts 5:29).
What is their solution?
The UN emphasizes “that states cannot permit conscience-based refusal of healthcare.”
What happened to the religious freedom you are referring to?
All Paths Lead to God
All paths lead to God has been a topic debated for many years. The question is, is this true? Yes, all paths evidently lead to God. One path leads to God as Father, and the other path leads to God as Judge. So what is the real question one should be asking? Which path are you on? In this final topic, we find the bottom line, “Access to spirituality for LGBT persons.”
“Embracing spirituality and faith is a path that must be available to all, including all persons with diverse sexual orientation and gender identities.”
They finally got one right. There is a path that is inclusive to all who want to live according to their own thoughts and desires.
Matthew 7:13-14 BSB; 13 Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the way that leads to life, and only a few find it.
It is accessed through a wide gate that leads to a broad path. This broad path has many people on it. But what the UN and others don’t want you to know is where the path leads.
Nor do they want you to know there is a narrow gate and a narrow path with few on it. And there are eternal payments for each path. One path leads to eternity with God, the other leads to eternity without God in hell.
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 BSB; 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 men who submit to or perform homosexual acts, 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor verbal abusers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.
Galatians 5:19-21 BSB; 19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity, and debauchery; 20 idolatry and sorcery; hatred, discord, jealousy, and rage; rivalries, divisions, factions, 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
1 Timothy 1:10 BSB; for the sexually immoral, for homosexuals, for slave traders and liars and perjurers, and for anyone else who is averse to sound teaching
The ones who listen to man and not the Lord have no clue what true Christianity is about. They speak, but their words will hold no value in eternity. True believers teach that there is only one way to have living hope, which is only found in Jesus Christ. They don’t want you to know that there is hope for peace.
1 Corinthians 6:11 BSB; And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
The gospel of God is God’s power for salvation to anyone who believes (Romans 1:10). The people in the Corinthian church were just like you and me. The only thing they had to offer God was their sinful, evil selves.
The good news for the sinner is that Christ died in your place, shed His blood, and paid for your sins. He was resurrected from the dead. Jesus is alive today. He called sinners to repentance when He walked this earth, and He calls sinners now.
Matthew 11:28-30 BSB; 28 Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
Repent of your sins and believe that Jesus was resurrected. Confess Him as Lord, for He is the only One who has the power to set you free.
