Proverbs 1:29-31: “For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord: They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.”
As the spread of Covid-19, the deadly strain of coronavirus, accelerates throughout the world, all sorts of events and social gatherings have been cancelled.
Be it St Patrick’s Day events, major sporting occasions, church services or big and popular events particular to Northern Ireland like the Balmoral Show and all Orange Order marches and band parades, the nation has come to a virtual standstill.
One might have hoped that, amid the numerous onerous restrictions which are sensibly being placed on all of our movements and socialising, the enemies of God would at least forget about their God defiance for this year.
However, not so for the campaigners in the pro-sodomy lobby in the Mid-Ulster area as they have signalled their determination to parade their godlessness in front of everyone this year.
We have previously highlighted the wicked, planned Mid Ulster Pride parade which was due to be held on Saturday, 13 June.
Now, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the organisers of this parade have indicated that it will no longer take place on that date.
Great news, the true child of God might say.
However, undeterred in their desire to defy God, Mid Ulster Pride has announced they will hold their parade of rebellion instead on Saturday, 19 September.
They are stubborn in their desire to not only break God’s law but to also rub it in the noses of all and sundry.
Of course, given the warnings that the effects of this pandemic could be felt for anything up to 18 months, it is rather presumptuous to reorganise it for six months time and just further evidence of the pride at work in this LGBT movement.
The good news is that another event, which Mid Ulster Pride had previously titled ‘Blessed are the Queer’, before receiving negative publicity for this outrageous episode in blasphemy, has been cancelled.
It had been renamed to ‘No Fear in Love’ after the initial title had met with public condemnation and was due to be addressed by two ordained Presbyterian ‘ministers’, Rev Laurence Kirkpatrick and ‘Rev’ Cheryl Meban (pictured, below).
The launch event of the Mid Ulster Pride group back in January was met with a number of protests from different groups.
However, like the fools referred to in the passage at the top of this article, those celebrating sin have “despised reproof” as they “did not choose the fear of the Lord”.
How sad it is to see that even a global pandemic which has claimed the lives of more than 10,000 people is not enough to cause this sodomite group, whose vice-Chair, lest we forget, is a Church of Ireland minister named Rev Andrew Rawding (pictured, top), to cancel altogether their celebration of sin.
Proverbs 8:13 warns that such pride and evil ways are hated by the Lord.
It says: “The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.”
Let us demonstrate the fear of the Lord so clearly lacking in those involved with Mid Ulster Pride and let us be steadfast in our standing up for His truth in this increasingly wicked day.
