Someday, I’m going to write a book titled Jesus Wouldn’t Do That, Would He?
The story-line would help to destroy the many myths we Christians have about our Lord. You know, Jesus always loves peace and hates all wars; Jesus loves stability and hates upheaval; Jesus does not butt into privates lives and mess them up; Jesus promotes successful people and ignores failures (like me); Jesus is big on comforts and benefits for those he is training to be His leaders. And the list goes on and on.
Honey and I have moved again. This is the twenty-eighth time we have pulled up stakes and moved to a new address in our twelve years of marriage. Fifteen different cities (some more than once) and nine different states. If you do the math, you will understand why we don’t plant flowers or trees in the backyard. What’s the use, right?
But this time? This could be it. Maybe, we have arrived at our final destination. What’s the name of our new community? Harveston. That’s right, as in the-Harvest-is-on.
Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger knows it. Senators Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer know it. Mayor Gavin Newsom knows it. The Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals’ justices know it. Every state and city politician knows it. Christians know it. Even – homosexuals know it.
Homosexuality is an abominable sin. Period.
You can rewrite the laws. You can bring on the lawyers. You can bring on the National Guard. You can change the textbooks. You can hold a gun to every person’s head in the state. But no matter what you do, homosexuality is a sin.
Now, here’s some good news.
The Lord is going to defend Himself against San Francisco’s condemnation of His teachings. Don’t worry! He will not need an army of lawyers. Nor favorable justices on the California Supreme Court. Nor an expensive public relations’ campaign. Nor a ballot initiative from California’s voters. Nor anyone’s help at all. After all, He is the Judge and Counselor.
What is the Lord going to do?
He will send a few good men. Each will be an army of one, invading the city with a gospel of deliverance to set the captives free. They will be more than enough to handle the Spirit of Depravity which has ruled this city up until now.
So, San Francisco – get ready!

My wife, Honey, believes that I have some wires crossed in my brain. Who knows? Maybe she’s right. This is one of those times when she tends to remind me of this fact.
You see, when I read that San Francisco’s supervisors passed a resolution condemning the Catholic Church’s teachings on homosexuality as “hateful”, “defamatory”, “insensitive”, “and ignorant”, I got excited. I even thought to myself, this is great. Now, San Francisco is right where God wants the city to be. Praise the Lord!
Maybe, you are starting to agree with my wife, right?
…But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more. (Romans 5:20)
I look at San Francisco and I see a perfect opportunity for the gospel of Jesus. Not just to speak the gospel, but to demonstrate it. What a perfect time to take on the ruling principality over the city of San Francisco, the one that has mocked the Creator by degrading men and women to a depraved level of sexuality. What a perfect time to set the captives free!
Unlike many who want to give up on San Francisco and let it fall into Satan’s hands, I don’t. The Savior died on the cross for all mankind. And everyone needs a Savior named Jesus – even homosexuals.
Just remember this: More than enough grace. It’s all we need to change San Francisco – NOW.

Ghazala Khan of The Pakistani Spectator interviewed me via email. It was fairly painless and she was kind enough to leave a few skeletons behind in my closet. Thanks Ghazala.
