Registered Trademark Trampled, Promoting PrideFest’s Parade
Ramesh C. Reddy
comes to your mind when you see a rainbow or think about a rainbow?
What comes to my mind is the
covenant that Jehovah made with Noah after the flood:
“Never again will
the waters become a flood to destroy all life. Whenever
the rainbow appears
in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between
God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.”
God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant I
have established between me and all life on the earth.” (Genesis
How wonderful it is to see
the rainbow and remember God’s covenant. Sadly, the rainbow has been
the victim of copyright infringement.
You heard me right!
Sadly, the precious rainbow
is being used by Satan to promote a lifestyle in certain earthlings
that is totally contrary to the Word of God.
How sad it makes me when I
see the rainbow being used to promote sin and promiscuity.
Sadly, this is what has
happened throughout the United States when the LGBTQ community has
used the rainbow to represent their lifestyle.
They could have chosen any
other symbol to live their lifestyle but they chose to use God’s
precious covenant symbol. How sad!!!
A lot of people including
psychologists don’t believe that homosexuality is a lifestyle but a
genetically predisposition. Even if that were the case, the Lord
would not say we should refrain from something if He has not
provided a way out.
Even in our sin, God
provides a way out if we look for Him and ask His help even through
our burden and pain.
temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is
will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you
are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up
(1 Corinthians 10:13, NIV)
Refraining from something
that we want to engage in so badly can be very hard to do especially
when we think it is part of us. But even if it is part of us, if it
is wrong, we should fight it. We cannot think it is not wrong so we
can go ahead and engage in it. If the Bible says, it is wrong, it is
wrong. Having a struggle with any kind of sin can be hard but
struggling with a sin is not a sin until we act on the struggle.
the New Testament, the Apostle Paul who loves the Lord Jesus very
“They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and
worshiped and served created things rather
than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
Because of this, God gave them over to
shameful lusts. Even
their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones.
In the same way the men also
abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust
for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and
received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.
Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the
knowledge of God, he gave them over to
a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. (Romans 1:25-28,
That is so sad when we live
our lives by doing what ought not to be done.
This is exactly what happens
in the lives of those in the LGBTQ community that practice
homosexuality. It is not a sin to struggle with homosexuality but
practicing it is a sin. Sadly, the LGBTQ community goes a step
further supporting the practice of homosexuality, gay marriage, and
using God’s symbol of the rainbow at PrideFest to promote their sin
in their marches. This is so sad.
Rightly it is called
PrideFest because pride can be defined as a lofty and often arrogant
assumption of superiority in some respect. When marching, this is
the attitude that is taken towards God that they know better than
God. How sad!
Sin is sin no matter what
kind of sin is practiced. But the Good News is, no matter how much
sin is practiced there is a way out and it starts with Jesus Christ.
It does not matter what we have done or who we are, when we come to
Jesus. Jesus accepts us in all our sin and wants to give us new life
in Him as we turn to Him in repentance.
am not ashamed of the gospel, because
it is the power of God for
the salvation of everyone who believes: first
for the Jew, then
for the Gentile. For
in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a
righteousness that is by faith from
first to last, just
as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.” (Romans
practiced homosexuality, adultery, promiscuity, lying, cheating,
stealing, etc, the Lord is there to give new life to all.
“Don't you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the
Kingdom of God? Don't fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual
sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male
prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, or are thieves, or greedy
people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people-none of these
will inherit the Kingdom of God. SOME OF YOU WERE LIKE THAT. But you
were cleansed; you were made holy; you were made right with God by
calling on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of
our God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9-11, NLT)
With the Lord’s help, people can change and so much change has
occurred in the lives of those who have struggled or engaged in
homosexuality when they have surrendered to the Lord in their pain.

Don’t give into the lie that it is your body and you should be able
to do with it what you want. This lie is from the pit of Hell.
Come to the Lord Jesus even if you have practiced homosexuality and
lay at the feet of Jesus for His help, hope, and healing for He
loves you so much.
if anyone is in Christ, he
is a new creation; the
old has gone, the new has come! All
this is from God, who
reconciled us to himself through Christ and
gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that
God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting
men’s sins against them. And
he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We
are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as
though God were making his appeal through us. We
implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.
made him who had no sin to
be sin for
us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”
