The Vatican has branded homosexual marriage as evil and abortion as terrorism

The Vatican's second highest ranking doctrinal official forcefully branded homosexual marriage as evil and abortion and euthanasia as a form of "terrorism with a human face."

Archbishop Angelo Amato, the secretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, referred to abortion clinics as slaughterhouses of human beings and parliaments of so-called civilized nations establishing laws contrary to human nature when these laws approve of marriage between people of the same sex. The archbishop accused the media of manipulating language to hide the tragic reality of the facts in both the abortion issue and homosexual marriage.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The pronouncement by a Vatican official that gay marriage is evil and abortion is terrorism has an interesting connection to Bible prophecy.

The declaration by Archbishop Angelo Amato from the Vatican that abortion is terrorism and gay marriage is evil has drawn attention to these two very controversial issues. Abortion rights people and gay rights activists have voiced much concern about the announcement from the Vatican. The truth is, that the Bible does have something to say about both issues as they relate to the Last Days.

Jeremiah, an ancient Jewish prophet, stated in the first chapter of his prophecy, verse 5, that before Jeremiah was formed in his mother's womb, the Lord knew him as a person; that would reveal to us that killing a pre-born child would be murder or terrorism. Dr. Luke, who wrote the book of Acts and the gospel by his name, wrote 2,000 years ago that one sign of the Coming of Jesus Christ in the Last Days would be that our world would be as it was in the days of Lot, Luke 17:28. These were days which witnessed the sin against God of homosexuality. These two passages and these two issues are prevalent in our world today; that then gives us the understanding of the nearness of the Second Coming of Christ.

Let me remind you that the Rapture precedes the Lord's Second Coming by seven years, indicating that we must be close to the time of the Rapture.
