LGBTQ seems to rule the world these days. And not just in America, but over much of the civilized world. Why?
A change in our culture? Have we as a society become that self-centered? Doing what we want, when we want, all the time? Have we allowed ourselves to drift that far away from God and God’s Teachings?
Even the Pope has said that gay marriage is a sin and can NOT be Blessed by the church, because it is a sin against God! Many Evangelical leaders have said gay marriage is a sin against God. And, sadly, some churches have split over the issue and have rejected God’s Word in favor or filling their pews and purses.
Let there be no doubt, the Bible says gay marriage is a sin. And it is.
So how should Christians react? Personally, I think this question needs to be answered on two levels.
The first is on the level regarding the person who is gay. First, God loves them and so should we! Second, I am a sinner in need of mercy too, so I am in no place to condemn another. And last, no one knows the true heart of another except God. Only God can judge an individual person.
On another level, there are the changes occurring in our country. And many of them are not good. Gay marriage is one such change, and it has changed our nation’s culture completely! It’s hard to turn on the TV without allowing the gay lifestyle into our homes; it fills the airwaves and the news. It changes our children and our children’s lives! There seems to be no escape from it!
But there is good news! There are things that we can do to protect our children. We can pull them out of public school and either send them to private schools or homeschool them! We need to protect our children from those who would try to brainwash them into believing the Bible is not True. The Bible IS True, and we need to protect our children’s faith and their future at all costs.
And we need to let them be children! It’s a very difficult world that we live in and it is going to get more difficult. We need to protect the right of our children to have their childhood! They deserve it 🙂
And there is more Good News :). For anyone living an un-Godly Lifestyle of any kind, God’s Grace and Help is sufficient for us to change it to a Godly Lifestyle. If we ask God for His Help, He will give it. Because God Loves Us-All of Us 🙂
