Evangelist Tim Lee is a former Marine. He is an American hero. He lost both of his legs fighting for America in the Vietnam War.
The first time I heard him preach was back in 1977. I was eleven years old, and he was preaching at the Indianapolis Baptist Temple in his wheelchair. It was quite an experience. When you come in contact with a hero like this you will never forget it.
I have followed his ministry somewhat distantly since that time. I have a friend who used to travel with him in his evangelistic ministry. He is a great preacher of the Word of God.
He wrote a powerful article this past week and I want to share it with you. Here is the Article:
THE SOFT GENERATION OF AMERICA
By Tim Lee
1 Corinthians 6:9,10: Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind…shall inherit the kingdom of God.
We tend to forget the firmness of the Word of God on those who are effeminate.
We would do well to remind ourselves of what God said.
That word effeminate means ‘soft’, soft to the touch. It can also mean a boy kept for homosexual relations with a man; it can mean a male who submits his body to unnatural lewdness; or it can mean a male prostitute.
Which ever of those it is, it’s not a good word.
We are filling America today with effeminate men and boys. That indicates the final stages of moral degeneration just before a nation slides into the abyss of destruction.
We’ve gone from “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall” to Obama’s recent outrageous edict—Let’s put the boys in girls bathrooms!
We’ve taken a military force that was once feared throughout the world down to that horrible picture of American soldiers kneeling before barbarian Iranian thugs.
WHO ARE WE?
HAVE WE FORGOTTEN??
Have we forgotten that a rag-tag army of farmers and cobblers defeated the mightiest military force in the world in 1783?
Have we forgotten that our WWI doughboys entered a stalemate war and in one year, seven months, and 6 days routed the German army and brought peace to war-torn Europe?
Have we forgotten that 900 boatloads of teenagers defeated Hitler’s Atlantic Wall and in seven months our Rangers and paratroopers were resting comfortably on Hitler’s private bed at Berchtesgaden?
Even in my war—the Vietnam War, have we forgotten that American soldiers and Marines, in thirteen years of bitter fighting, were never one-time beaten in a major engagement? Have we forgotten that when our guys were violently and suddenly struck at a hundred different locations at the beginning of the Tet Offensive, that our fighting men quickly got themselves together and killed over 100,000 of the enemy and so decimated the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese armies that it was a full year before they could mount another major offensive?
HAVE WE FORGOTTEN WHO WE ARE?
We built the Hoover Dam; we drove a car and hit a golf ball on the moon.
We simultaneously crushed two veteran armies on two sides of the earth in the Second World War and then in 1990, during the Persian Gulf War, in less than 90 days we quickly defeated the third largest standing army in the world having only 383 fatalities?
And have we forgotten that 12 years later we dug Saddam Hussein out of a hole in the ground and brought him to justice?
In order to build that kind of a nation, that kind of fighting force; that kind of mentality you have to know the difference between boys and girls.
You have to realize that God created males and females; that the differences are very distinct; that there’s divine genius behind their distinctness and that an all-wise and powerful God made it that way for the procreation of the race and for the pleasure of biblical marriage.
WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO US AS A NATION?
As writer John Hawkins, in referring to America asks “How did the toughest, most independent society since Sparta turn into a wuss factory?”
There are several answers to that question:
First, the disappearance of the masculine father image in America has resulted in catastrophic mental and emotional damage to our children. Rush Limbaugh was asked several years ago “What is the number one problem in America?” He replied instantly “Single parent homes.” The utter disappearance of manly fathers has to be laid at the doorstep of our declining masculinity in this nation. Men train boys; sissies train wusses! We need a new generation of manly fathers in this country!
Second would be the public school system. Removing the word “warrior”, “hero”, “battle”, and “masculine” from our textbooks; removing our great military leaders from out textbooks and replacing them with some guy who invented the glue on the postage stamp has done a great amount of harm to the masculine image in the minds of our school children.
Third, the staggering amount of bias in the American media has helped mislead an entire generation. With help from Holly Wood, the media has made pastors and ministry personnel look like cross-eyed mentally defunct idiots; they have branded our brave and decisive military leaders as murderers and international bandits; they have profiled conservative supreme court justices as sex addicts; they have ignored and dismissed patriotic and God-fearing men like Ted Cruz as bigoted morons; they have placed disgraceful individuals such as Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner on the front covers of our national magazines and paraded them as some kind of hero and social superman[?] This media vomit is having a very destructive effect in our society. Can you imagine the impact on the confused mind of an 18-year old kid today who sees pictures of Bruce Jenner’s ripped body throwing the javelin in the 1976 Montreal Olympics and then looking at him today with a shiny plastic face and bulging breasts? Jenner, the man, after eight hours of fierce competition in the grueling decathlon, ran a record best 47.51 in the 400 meters, beating the other male competitors by five yards! This same 18-year-old kid watches the footage of that race and then watches “Caitlyn” Jenner walk into the exclusive Tutto il Giorno restaurant in NYC in a tight black dress with pearl earrings and sit at the same booth with two other trans-gender women[?]–excuse me—men dressed as women?
NO WONDER WE’VE GONE SOFT!
NO WONDER WE ARE DESTROYING THIS NATION!
We’re soft in our thinking, soft in our actions, soft in our international relations, soft in our government, soft in our military, soft in our public school and colleges, soft in our pitiful social profiles and soft in our mental perceptions!
The old signs said “Men’s Room” and “Women’s Room”! Any decent, law-abiding, God-fearing American citizen knows what that means!
Let’s get back to God’s standard of morality, of decency, of truth and honor before it’s too late for America to turn around.
I say AMEN to this. The foolishness of our nation is staggering. The Bible says that part of God’s judgment upon a nation is to allow the the fruit of their sin.
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; (Romans 1:28)
When a nation falls, it first falls into perversion. What we see in our nation should cause us to fear. We see a nation that was once a strong tower for good and righteousness turn into a nation that honors sin and perversion more than strength and morality. We were never perfect, but we were a nation that feared God, and a nation blessed of God because of it. We have become a nation that shakes its fist in the face of God. We tell God to go jump in the lake, we are going to do what we want to do.
We have wicked people in positions of power in America, but before we blame them we need to remember that it is the American people who have elected them. We get what we deserve. The foolishness of these trans-gender bathrooms will be our destruction.
Even in the very rare case where a person is born without genitalia, or with the genitalia of both genders, they still has the chromosomes that determine their gender. The will either be XY, which makes them a male, or they will be XX, which makes them a female. You cannot go against the science.
A pediatric college recently said that this road our government is traveling is dangerous. It said that the science is very clear, this is a mental problem, not a physiological problem. We are not helping those who struggle with this kind of problem by passing laws encouraging them.
Those who are pushing this kind of thing are trying to destroy the morality of our country. I am glad there are people like Tim Lee who are heroes and will speak clearly on this issue. He is saying that which needs to be said.
One of my favorite sayings is, “You are seldom persuasive when you are abrasive.” Never-the-less, it sometimes takes some very harsh words to get a point across clearly.
It is my hope that you will join us at the corner of truth and courage and stand up against the perversion that is spreading like wildfire in our nation.
