Comments for Isaiah 5:20

Scott's comment on 2014-01-14 14:24:42:

The two comments above are hypicitaical to this scripture. Homosexuals are being killed and tourtued in Africa and Russia. Who are you to judge George and Sam? I thought the judging was left to God...If you follow the old tesimate word for word you are also most likley commiting an abonimination to the eyes of the lord. If two adults who LOVE and are commited to eachouther want to live a life true to one another with an open hart to god I see no wrong in that!! For judging all homosexuals and saying all Islamic people are bad?? Woe vnto them that call euill good, and good euill, that put darkenes for light, and light for darkenesse, that put bitter for sweete, and sweete for bitter. When you find yourself on the side of the majority it is time to pause and reflect.

Yes, we are truly living in the times this verse speaks of. I live in Malta, and homo***uality, adultery, how men and women dress,(sometimes one wonders if they are dressed) are all accepted even by the authorities. If we talk against those things and about what God's Word says, they call us bigots.
But we all have to face God's judgment one day.
In Him,
George Ebejer
