Just because someone says something it doesn’t make it true. Just because someone affirms a thing, it does not mean that what they have affirmed is factually provable. What it means is that they said it, and that’s it.
I am a marathon runner. I am astronaut. I am a robot sent from the future to make sure robots are not invented. See? I can say, or at least type anything I want, but it doesn’t make it true.
I am not a marathon runner, nor am I an astronaut, or a robot for that matter. Simply because I affirmed these things didn’t magically make them factual.
If I tried to run a marathon I’d likely die of a heart attack, I have vertigo so being an astronaut’s a bust as well, and as far as being a robot from the future is concerned, we will leave science fiction to the science fiction writers.
Lately I’ve been getting a lot of articles forwarded to me by believers asking my opinion, and the crux of each of these articles was that some individual or another was affirming that they were Christians and practicing homosexuals.
As I said in the beginning, just because someone says something it doesn’t make it true.
You can be a practicing homosexual, or you can be a Christian. You cannot be both simultaneously. No matter how many hissy fits men and women throw, no matter how much they stomp their feet and hold their breath and ball their fists, it will not change the factuality of this reality.
You either love your sin more than you love God, or you love God more than you love your sin. The choice must be made by every individual as to whom or what they will choose, as well as the path they will follow.
This goes for every habitual sin, it goes for every sin that men are tethered to and yes, each of these separate men from God and put up a wall.
While we’re at it, unless I missed something along the way the entire notion of homosexuality is about being sexually attracted to the same sex. Since when is lust or sexual attraction love? Have we become that jaded that we can no longer differentiate between the two? Have we become so lost in our own perversity that we can no longer distinguish between lust and love?
Perhaps the most egregious consequence of this entire drama is that we take the blood of Christ, and the fact that He hung upon a cross for the sins of mankind, and make it null. We’ve done away with the notion of ‘go and sin no more’ and even have the temerity to say sin isn’t sin simply because we’ve decided it isn’t.
I’ve said this often enough but it bears repeating, if there were any other way for man to be reconciled unto God than through the shed blood of Christ, God would have employed that way. Sin is death, and the unrepentant man is dead in his sin until through repentance Christ breathes life into him and he is regenerated.
How much do you have to hate someone not to tell them about repentance and the consequences of refusing to turn from one’s sinful ways? How much do you have to hate someone to withhold the truth of Scripture from them attempting to placate them, and tell them they can use the carpool lane to heaven with their sin in tow? Yet, rather than being seen for what they are, such individuals are called tolerant, understanding, loving, and all-embracing, while those who in love cry aloud ‘repent’ are deemed hateful and bigoted.
With love in Christ,
