America's New National Image
 
These days we hear politicians speaking of repairing America's national image in the world.  They say that this image has been damaged in recent years because of the nation's conduct in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  This is true, but the new national image of America is far more damaging in the eyes of the world and most importantly in the eyes of God.  This new national image can be summarized in a single word - Sodom.
 
This image was elevated to a new level this week when the president of the United States declared the month of June to be "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month."  It is an immeasurable shame on this nation to celebrate a month dedicated to homosexuality, which is an abomination against God and a crime against nature (Lev. 18:22; Rom. 1:26-27).
 
Certainly, there are some nations like Canada and some in Europe who will applaud our nation's debauchery, but most of the world still sees homosexuality for the evil that it is.  In fact, a recent article in the Russian newspaper Pravda described America's image in this way: "...amongst the modern, enlightened American societal norm, as well as that of the general West, homosexuality is not only not a looked down upon life choice, but is often praised as a virtue."  Is this the image that we want for our nation?
 
Of course, the opinions of other nations are of little consequence compared to the judgment of God.  The Lord has exposed homosexuality as an abomination.  His word has said, "The wicked will return to Sheol, even all the nations who forget God" (Ps. 9:17).  "Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people" (Prov. 14:34).  It is a small thing for God to bring down nations, who "are like a drop from a bucket, and are regarded as a speck of dust on the scales" (Isa. 40:15) in the eyes of God.  Dear Americans, if we would preserve our nation, then we better change our national image now and stop celebrating ungodly abominations in defiance of Almighty God.
