Wouldn’t be there Ten righteous to save India?

Lord said to Abraham “for the sake of ten righteous I will not destroy Sodom.” But there weren’t even five righteous and God destroyed Sodom.
Indian cultural system is getting twisted with a bend to the West, as is observed from the move made by the government to legalize same sex-marriage. Majority though are not gay, accept it as another way of life and keep demeaning the society by allowing to pursue  happiness by same sex-marriage. They have debased to individual level of interpretation of ‘what is correct and what is not’. Where did they go wrong? They failed to construe the word meaning good. For them, good is a pure function of will. This will is a subjective variable and hence differs from person to person. They must understand that all good things are not true i.e. things in relation to ‘will’ need not be always in relation with intellect. Or in other words, they failed to reconcile human will with that of God. If they were led by intellect, they must have met God and His ways and could have given a better definition to good as explained by Socrates in answering Euthyphro’s dilemma. He said “Good is not what human wishes or God wishes, it’s what God is. So the goodness does not come ultimately from God’s commandments, but from His nature, which then results in good commandments”. Otherwise good must be arbitrary, which is not. God’s nature does not allow same sex-marriage since He warns against it. So, same sex-marriage is unnatural, not just abnormal for some persons.
The world, flesh and devil are the enemies in any spiritual warfare. Flesh refers to the fallen, natural, carnal state in which we are born. Of course some people, because of genetic and environmental factors, are born as homosexuals.  But it does not give them the license to behave as homosexuals. Who on earth have had no temptations of flesh? None. All humans are tempted by flesh in one or other way - to homosexuality, masturbation, fornication, impurity, licentiousness etc. Since Christ already crucified the sinful flesh to the Cross, we have no voice to incriminate on the temptations of flesh for our actions. “And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.” - Galatians 5:24. The world represents people, religions, governments, or worldly systems that oppose Christ. The world that rejects the truth of Christ is under the deception of the god of this world, which is the devil. Now the Indian government, by modifying IPC 377, is turning against Christ and epitomizing the world. Thus the government is mixing in to the power of world to blind a person to his or her need for salvation, and from receiving God's free gift of Holy Spirit. It’s the time to think whether you have to stand  with the government by just believing that it is right for a man to marry a man or a woman to marry a woman or you can outcry to win souls. Your outcry will count you righteous and save the country. Let us see how many righteous are here.
Jesus, rescue us from the power of the flesh, the world and the devil and enlighten us with Your truth, love and Holy Ghost. Amen.
