Every time Jimmy DeYoung brings Dave James to the Broadcast Table to discuss an issue facing the Christian Community they endeavor to bring Biblical principles to the attention of the PTIB audience that will help their daily walk. Today, on Prophecy Today Intelligence Briefing, Jimmy and Dave will bring these Biblical principles forward so that we can look at these issues like the Lord does. The focus for today is the issue of the “Equality Bill” being considered in the US Congress. 


JD: David this last week you sent me several articles by Conservative commentators who have deep concerns that this is a game changer. I think this could really have a major impact for churches and ministries.

DJ: Well I think you’re undoubtedly right Jimmy. In the federalist Margo Cleveland wrote this, “The statutory language provides for an extreme remaking of all aspects of society, destroys equality for women and threatens religious liberty in the privacy rights for all Americans especially children. The proposed law also will upend the protections of the unborn as the Equality Act is about abortion too.” And then she goes on to note this, the Equality Act provides that an individual shall not be allowed access to a shared factuality including a restroom, a locker room and a dressing room that is in accordance with an individuals identity.

In a blog on answers in Genesis Ken Ham wrote this, “It’s being described as the most comprehensive assault on Christianity in America ever written into law, a dangerous threat to our nation and the new heresy code”. Franklin Graham warrant this, the Equality Act designates schools, churches, and healthcare organizations as public accommodations and with this schools, churches, and hospitals could be forced to except the governments beliefs and mandates about sexual orientation and gender identity. Then he went on to say this, “the Equality Act will use the force of law across all 50 states to strip Christian and other religious ministries of their right to hire people of shared faith to pursue a shared mission”. I think we’re closer than ever to a time when pastors, Bible teachers, and other ministry leaders may face serious consciousness including incarceration for taking a stand for the word of God. During last Thursday’s debate Jerry Nadler of New York said God’s Will is of no concern for this Congress.

JD: David James with the details on the Equality Bill in the United States Congress for approval at this time.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

United States representative Jerry Nadler’s statement the other day is a contradiction on Biblical truth. Remember the Lord brought human government into existence some 4,500 years ago, that’s Genesis 9:6. God will use human world leaders to accomplish His Will, that’s Revelation 17:17. God’s Will has everything to do with the United States Congress. Political leaders will make political decisions that will set the world stage to fulfill God’s plan for today and the future.
