... especially from the Word of God.

Here's how the future will look around the world if revisonist apostates in all denominations and amongst the public are not cut off at the pass! WaPo is reporting a sad but fascinating reality from Nigeria ...

Little more than a century ago, legions of Christian missionaries arrived here from Europe with an imposing agenda for changing traditional African practices. Worshiping animistic gods, they told people, was sinful. So was keeping carved idols at home. And in a land where polygamy was common, the missionaries taught that marriage was a sacred union between one man and one woman, period.

Today, many devout Christian Nigerians adhere firmly to the view that homosexuality is ungodly, and they have been rankled by its growing acceptance among church leaders in the United States and Europe. As the descendants of Nigerians who abandoned their traditional values under the influence of Western preaching, some Christians here say they feel betrayed and offended that the spiritual descendants of those missionaries are now trying to change the rules.
And my friends we deserve this and even more out of "darkest Africa" for the way some of our leaders have handled Scripture; Julie Ade-Cole, 60, was very specific in her condemnations ...
"If America does not stop going in the direction of Sodom and Gomorrah, I can see God's wrath coming heavily down," said the retired government worker, who views the devastation wreaked by Hurricane Katrina as divine punishment. "The Lord has favored them so much, they have started taking God for granted. They have become arrogant."
And Dayo Okusami, 58, picked up her bible and addressed those in attendance at the National Ecumenical Center, a multi-denominational cathedral in the capital city of Abuja ...
Homosexuality is against the book ... . Here we still follow the book. Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed because of homosexuality. That's it. God doesn't change. He's not human.
Jesus said, "Unless you come to Me like one of these little ones you shall not see the Kingdom of God." The Nigerians and others around the world are still coming in their innocence, with borken hearts and humble spirits ... the Western Church thinks it's matured beyond the childish athings and no longer needs the teachings of "the book" but they are O' so wrong and we will see more and more of the evil we've sown come back to haunt us as time goes by!
In a recent interview in his office here, [Peter J. Akinola, the outspoken leader of Nigeria's 17.5 million Anglicans] complained that the missionaries of the past "hardly saw anything valid in our culture, in our way of life," yet the same Western churches are now making exceptions to the rules they once preached. "Brother, there's some need for some consistency here ... ."
Amen, my brother.
Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo, a Christian in a country split between a largely Muslim north and a Christian and animistic south, told a conference of African Anglican bishops last year that homosexuality was "unbiblical, unnatural and definitely un-African."

"Surely the good Lord who created us male and female knew exactly what he was doing," he said, according to the Financial Times newspaper of London. "Any other form of sexual relationship is a perversion of the divine order, and sin."
