To the editor:

Genesis 1:1: “In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.”

Genesis 1:27: “And God made man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”

Our God is a creator by heart. Look around you at the beauty of the land, the majesty of the mountains, the magnificence of the seas, the miracle of birth. God created all these things and gave us his living word to follow as a guide on how to live as his creation.

I am afraid mankind has turned creation upside down. Recently I was listening to a Christian radio station and they were talking about a Bible the homosexuals have published called the “Queen James Bible.” Excerpts from this man’s speech were played and in general claimed that the scriptures in the Old Testament do not apply in the New Testament.

I must say I was amazed at how someone can twist God’s word to fit and condone their lifestyle. For reference read Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13. I could give more but space here is limited. In the New Testament, Romans 1:26-27 speaks against man with man and woman with woman. Because the Lord is the same today as yesterday and tomorrow — if he changed his mind on this issue as this man claims, God would then have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.

Bloomington Mayor Mark Kruzan recently presided over a symbolic wedding ceremony of 13 same-sex couples to protest a proposed constitutional amendment banning gay marriage in Indiana, rising above not just the laws of the land but God’s laws. Marriage was created by God for man and woman, sanctified for their union to become one. Homosexual acts are an abomination to God’s creation.

Recently David Nealy wrote a letter here giving us details and statistics on abortion. I recently heard a documentary from a previous abortion nurse who claimed this problem is greed-fed.

Abortion clinics are nothing more than abortion mills who want a quota met and she spoke of one doctor who wanted a patient in each room replaced as soon as he was done and went from room to room as quickly as possible — not even washing his hands between patients — just changing gloves.

How do we as a people condone murdering God’s created babies by the millions and justify it? What about the effects it has on the moms? They are just pawns of abortionists’ greed. Am I blowing a trumpet here? You bet I am. I am sounding the alarm for a nation who denies God and his laws is a nation without his grace but still expects mercy.

We must repent as individuals and as a nation. The Lord is quick to forgive a genuine repentant heart and salvation is still free just for the asking. We must stand for what is right, good, pure and true, even if we are the last man or woman standing.

God has blessed this land of ours because we have loved him and his laws but this generation has seen mankind turn creation upside down.
