LETTER: Rainbow crosswalk is unholy

If created, letter writer will avoid that area of downtown

We just read in the July 5, 2019 publication of the Chilliwack Progress, that a second attempt will be made to have a rainbow crosswalk installed in the downtown area of Chilliwack.

It states in the article that “support is growing” for such a crosswalk. However, I think it all depends on as to who you talk to. It is an abomination to the Lord that His Holy token of the Covenant, is abused for such unholy purposes.

Please read Genesis 9:15: “And I will remember My covenant, which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. 16: And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.”

This precious token should not be abused, and certainly not for the use of crosswalks, to trample on. It calls for judgments upon our country, province and city. There are many of us, who do not in any way support crosswalks like this in our town, where many Christians reside. Chilliwack has many churches.

As for me, I will be discouraged from going to that area of town, if it ever came to pass that such a crosswalk would be installed. Refusing to trample upon a Thing so Holy. We live in rainbow country. Let us with reverence remember when we see one of those glorious rainbows, that the rainbow is meant to look upon in remembrance of His everlasting Covenant, to His Honour and Glory, for the encouragement of His saints, and those who may return unto Him; and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. Regarding the rainbow; that we may be given to look up towards heaven when we may see it, but not to trample it under our feet.
