Either duped ... / October 16, 2014

Dear Viewpoint:

Born and raised in Halifax Co (class of 1989) and glad that I did (not that I had any choice in the matter..LOL), and although I moved away almost 20 yrs ago, my mama still sends me the The News & Record. So, I was surprised to see that you have been duped into the same sex marriage fiasco. First off, I would like to “dito” what Rev. Dave Cline said to viewpoint on the Thursday Oct. 9, 2014 edition. Secondly, the Truth is the Truth no matter what man says,thinks or acts. What is the Truth? Read God’s word and find out.....(many call it the Bible...Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth).

Third , even though they seem like a nice couple, I would have to ask “How did the 10 yr old daughter come in into this picture?”. Somehow, Someway a Man had to be involved, Right? I am not trying to elevate man over woman in NO WAY because the two shall become one flesh and they together are to rule over what GOD has created. The good Lord knows I couldn’t do what I do without the help of the Beautiful creation He gave me (male), my wife (female). And as a result, we have 2 of the most handsome boys and 2 of the most beautiful girls I have ever seen.

Lastly, GOD created Adam and Eve.....not Adam and Steve! In a way, this marriage should not come as a suprise to me or others. Matter of fact, when We as a Nation do not have a King (the GOD of the Bible) over us, we will be like the last verse in the book of Judges, “In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right IN HIS OWN EYES. You see, this SMART nation we have have removed prayer and bible from the schools, now removed anything to do do with GOD from the courthouses and saying it’s okay to Abort Human Life (Roe v. Wade 1973)......looks like We as a nation are.....” doing what’s right in our own eyes.” How’s it working for us?

Saved and born again by the Living God/Jesus of the bible on August 30th 1992 at 21 yrs of age,

Samuel “Darrell” Lacks
