I so appreciate the heart of those on both sides of this debate. My hope is that readers will read the entire article before drawing conclusions. Those who strongly believe in the Bible and God’s will regarding sexual behavior also strongly believe in unconditional love and forgiveness. To say that authentic Christians hate homosexuals demonstrates a gross misunderstanding of the Christian faith. The ability to relate to people on their level, show genuine concern, and love them regardless of their lifestyle is a mark of true Christianity.
I know that many are truly sincere in their efforts, but the Bible is crystal clear on sexual sin, including homosexuality. Unfortunately, those with opposing views are often categorized as irrational, judgmental, bigoted, intolerant, and “anti-choicers.” Why are those pushing tolerance intolerable of opposing views? The reason is that this is not about tolerance or hate-speech but about pushing an agenda. In 2015 Joe Biden wrote: “Bakers, photographers, florists, and Christian retreat centers will participate in our same-sex weddings or be bankrupted.” In short, comply or pay the price, especially if the Equality Act becomes law.
The thought seems to be, If we can stop the voice of truth, silence the churches, and push our lifestyle on the culture, it will confirm that what we’re doing is right. But one can never silence the voice of conviction; we take it to our grave. No matter how many laws are passed in favor of homosexuality or how many corporations, communities, and counties embrace this agenda, it will not (it cannot) change God’s mind. This is why we must speak the truth in love. Opinions change, but truth does not. I had the privilege of discussing this topic with Lauren Green on Fox News; listen to the full audio here……..
