Is it truly extreme to think that it's wrong to kill babies in utero (Exo. 21:22-23; Psa. 71:6, Psa. 139:13-15; Luk. 1:44; Jer. 1:5)? Or to believe that it's wise to bear arms with which to defend the innocent (Psa. 82:3, 144:1; Exo. 22:2-3; Neh. 4:17-18; Gen. 14:13-16)? Or to see homosexuality as a serious sickness to be eliminated for the well-being of the whole society (Lev. 18:22, 20:13; Gen. 19:1-11; Rom. 1:24-28; 1 Cor. 6:9-11)?
No, just the opposite. It's righteous to believe those things. It's not extreme or wacky or fanatical to live in right alignment with the God who created all things (and thus knows best how they should run). After all, it is God alone, not Governor Cuomo or any person who thinks like him, who will presiding over the courts of heaven on Judgment Day.
"And Elijah came near to all the people and said, “How long will you go limping between two different opinions?" (1 Kng. 18:21).
"I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth" (Rev. 3:15-16).
The only of point of agreement between me and Mr. Cuomo is that uncompromising conservatives should get out of New York. Leave that pit of evil and insanity as quickly as you can. Why stay where neither you nor your God are welcome?
Is it possible to live in the midst of great godlessness and not being infected by it? Yes, it's possible. Lot remained righteous even though the city of Sodom, where he dwelt, became hopelessly corrupt. The rest of his family, however, did not fare so well, and in the end Lot's life and legacy were damaged beyond repair.
Staying in "Sodom" is a risky enterprise, for bad company corrupts good morals (1 Cor. 15:33).
Friends, disciples of Christ, whatever you decide to do, don't ever compromise your godly morals!
"Like a muddied spring or a polluted fountain is a righteous man who gives way before the wicked" (Pro. 25:26).
"the prophet Jehu son of Hanani confronted [the king]; he said to King Jehoshaphat, 'Is it right to help the wicked and be an ally of those who oppose the Lord? Because you have done this the Lord is angry with you!'" (2 Chr. 19:2).
New York, on the other hand, will not be delivered. She is quickly approaching her destruction; come away from her, you children of God.
