For the past week, I have been thinking on this SCOTUS decision. I have truly been amazed by how much movement or lack of movement there has been.
I have never once hated a human being. I don’t hate because someone sins (I had my own). But we live in such a desensitized world anymore. We use to live in a world where people would cringe at immoral acts or horrible events. Violence, language, sex, perversion, and drugs you name it. We have been so exposed to it through video games, tv programming, news - the American people don’t even turn a head away anymore. In fact people are more than likely to stare at grotesque things now or to support it.
There was one brief discussion I had with someone and I was thinking long and hard on my support for traditional marriage. I agree we MUST show the love of Christ, but I also believe there is nothing wrong with standing up against things ungodly. Sin is in fact sin and I don’t support any kind of sin.
This deal with the homosexual marriage thing is far worse to me (not because the sin of homosexuality) but because of the promotion of it. I don’t see people out screaming that they want rights to commit adultery(which they argue is love too), sex-trafficking, drugs, stealing, thieving etc.
I believe the word is a two-edged sword and the responsibility on preachers to preach the truth is a must. How can one repent from a sin if they don’t even know that their life-style is sinful to God? How can they ever turn to Jesus if they feel that what they are doing is OK? If you say something is wrong today, you are automatically a “judge”.
Listen, I have made changes in my life and not every change towards Jesus Christ was a bed of roses and a sweet witness, but at times it was the sword that shaped me. It was Godly (men) preachers standing on the pulpit and hammering it like they should. Love is love, but love is also corrective.
I am a woman and I have no rights to preach it. I do feel I have the right to stand with other Christians and say this is wrong and it is against God. I have and will not do it in a hateful way. I don’t visit gay forums and look for it, but if a fellow Christian stands, I will stand with them.
I am confused by the amount of Christians that are hateful about it but also just as frustrated with the ones that don’t want to stand. I am not saying you have to scream out; in fact you don’t even have to say anything but I have seen some waiver just because they are afraid what others will say about them.
We are living in an every changing world and I think American Christians are going to start feeling what real persecution is. Be courageous.
In Christ Jesus,
