The Bahamas could be heading down a road from which it may soon pass the point of no return.
It is time that Bahamians stop praying for the acquisition of and the preservation of their material possessions, and start paying closer attention to their Christian heritage.
There is absolutely no compromise for the word of God. There cannot be two ways of thinking about and explaining what the word says.
There are no buts, as recently espoused by Pineridge MP Frederick McAlpine and others of the same mindset: “I’m liberal in my thinking yet I’m very spiritual. I personally don’t support gay marriage, but I think the time is coming when you’re going to have to look at something called civil unions.”
This is from a man who calls himself a pastor, who presumably has a church, with a congregation who believes him to be a man of God, a man who can help to lead them to eternal salvation.
This brings to mind what is stated in James 1:8: “A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways.”
The Bible clearly states that it is an abomination for two men or two women to have sexual relations. There is no but.
In the world today there are many double-minded preachers who, instead of emphatically stating “thus said the Lord”, seek to ameliorate themselves with the popular crowd and their worldly ways.
The men and women of The Bahamas who have dedicated themselves to Christian leadership and have also engulfed themselves in political parties should heed the admonition of the Gospels: Luke 16:13 – “No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”
