The world is in the grip of a titanic struggle. We wrote about it before — see Hambo and the Rainbow. What’s the struggle all about? We’re glad you asked.
Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the ayatollah of Appalachia, is battling (at least on his blog) with the LGBTQ movement over use of the rainbow. He’s “taking the rainbow back” from the sinners, because — to him — its real meaning is a sign of God’s covenant with Noah that there won’t be another global flood. To show his defiance of the LGBTQ community, Hambo’s roadside tourist attraction, Ark Encounter — an exact replica of Noah’s Ark — is now permanently bathed in rainbow lights.
To discuss his progress in this crusade, ol’ Hambo just wrote New Rainbow-Themed AiG Resources. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
The rainbow is a symbol of God’s promise in Genesis 9:13 that he would never again send a worldwide (i.e., covering the entire globe) flood. It’s a message of his judgment on sin yet his mercy to save us from judgment.
Yes, and as a glorious demonstration of mercy, everything on Earth was drowned, including unborn babies, playful puppies, and happy hummingbirds. The only survivors were fish, and also the people and animals on Noah’s Ark. Then he says:
Sadly, a form of this symbol has been adopted by the LGBTQ community as a symbol for their rebellion and sinful lifestyle. Well, at Answers in Genesis we’ve been “taking back the rainbow” to remind people of its true meaning.
Hambo is so wonderful! He tells us:
The rainbow really can be a segue into the gospel message. This colorful natural phenomenon reminds us that God judges sin and man’s wickedness — he did so at the time of the Flood, and he will do so again. But his coming judgment won’t be with water — next time it’s with fire.
Egad — fire! Hambo continues:
The good news is that God is a merciful God. Just as he provided a way of salvation for Noah and his family from the Flood, so has he provided a way of salvation for us today.
After telling us what the bible says about salvation, he announces:
In a time when the rainbow is being used to promote a sinful lifestyle, we need to teach our children about the rainbow’s real meaning and point them toward the mercy of our Savior. To help you spark these conversations, we now offer several rainbow-themed resources you may find helpful including the following:
