Let's All Play By The Same Rules

Here is another good article on the freedoms that are being taken from us in the name of political correctness.  These videos show the hypocrisy of the gay agenda.  They sue if we don't follow their wishes and shut down businesses that don't cater to them, but when we ask for the same privilege it is denied and no one reports it.


Do we believe the Bible?  Then how can we as Christians do anything else than to stand for what it says?  Homosexuals are welcome to do whatever they want in the privacy of their own homes, but when they flaunt it and try to force us to agree, we had better let them know that we follow God's word which is to hate the sin and love the sinner.  Practicing homosexuality is a sin.  It is no worse sin than any other.  Gluttony, adultery, murder, lying, slander, gossip, idolatry, etc. are sins just as grievous to God because they separate us from Him.  It is not loving a person if you know something to be sin and don't tell the person who is asking you to condone it what you know to be true.

Several years ago when my Dad, who was not a Christian was in the hospital with a broken neck I was convicted when reading Ezekial 3:18-19.  18 When I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, that same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand. 19 Yet, if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul. I felt there was no way I could ever live with myself if I didn't talk to Dad about this verse and the responsibility I felt to tell him how much Jesus desired for him to know Him.  (We are all wicked--only Jesus can save us from the wickedness).  Consequently, my Dad decided to give his heart to the Lord and I can rest assured that He is in heaven and his blood is not on my hands.

God seems to see it as a serious omission and blatant disobedience when we don't warn those who are in sin (or more subtelly, take a stand that something is contrary to God's Word and therefore sinful).  No matter what anyone says it is not loving to allow those who are unrepentant in practicing sin--and thereby on their way to hell--to think what they are doing is all right.  Sometimes love must be tough!  But often that's the best kind!
