Many Christians today are compromising their principles in what they know is right or in line with God's Word for their own personal fame or for the riches of this world. Success by the world's standard is greatly different from that of God's. The world says, "Gain all you can," but God's Word says, Godliness with contentment is great gain. 1Tim 6:6
It grieves my heart to say this, but there are many Christian ministers today who have compromised their loyalty to God's Word. They know that most of their congregation doesn't want to hear the grim facts about abortion or homosexuality so they will avoid these subjects in their sermons for fear that it will offend someone.
I feel as thou I should re-address the issue of a Christian's thoughts on the abortion and homosexuality issues. Christians are known more for their actions then for what they say. Their actions when under stress or duress will show us what is in their true heart, revealing whether or not that they truly believe God's Word.
Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn't do it, sins. James 4:17
Most Americans today have traded their integrity for the lusts of what they think is the good life, thinking more highly of themselves then what they should and that it was from only their own abilities that they have succeeded in this world. If you are living the self-centered life you will soon realize that you are on the road to destruction. We have created a society that is more concerned about the abuse to animals then the murder of their very own sons and daughters through abortion; how sick is that?

Their feet are swift to shed blood: ruin and misery mark their ways, and the way of peace they do not know. There is no fear of God before their eyes.
Their greedy motives are for money and power and we can certainly see this more prevalently in Washington DC with all three branches of our government and with many on Wall Street and with corporate leadership; but the real sad fact here is, this greed is embedded in all of us and it is how we react to these evil desires that will reveal the difference between the non-Christian and the true Christian. Saying you are a Christian means nothing when your actions towards the abortion and homosexuality issues reveal otherwise...

This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by His grace though the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
