My thoughts on gay marriage & how we must proceed if we truly love God…..
Although I do not support gay marriage or any other marriage not defined as in the Bible between man and woman, I support the fact that God loves us all the same.
With that said, I think during this moment in our country, we have to be sensitive and not bash or bully because we are upset and frustrated. Our laws are changing & whatever our leaders are doing they can not change what is written in the Bible inspired by the Holy Spirit. We do have to love our gay brothers and sisters unconditionally and throughout whatever struggle that they face as their trying to walk their walk. This is going to be the hardest for people who do not understand and comprehend God’s grace, love and mercy….my friends it is unconditional. If you’ve cheated on your spouse, murdered in your mind, committed fornication, lied, stolen or stomped on another person just because you could, then God loved you unconditionally & kept you here although according to the Bible (before Jesus died on the cross for our sins) you would have been killed for your sins.
Therefore, we can not try to isolate people because we ‘see’ their sin outwardly and everyday. We have to love them unconditionally, because everyday they walk this earth they are judged more harshly then the person who murdered a child in cold blood because he thought he could (just like Moses from the Bible before his transformation). We have to remember that everyone is the same before God, there is no favoritism…so God loves that gay person just as much as He loves you and guess what you have to deal with it because it’s the truth.
I won’t deny these days are getting harder to raise children and teach them morality because the laws are trying to change morality based on what’s ‘technically’ best for our country to socially and economically thrive. While we teach morality we have to teach our children to not bully, hate or judge because someone is different from them. This is universal or agape love & it does not respect race, gender, religion, socio-economic background or political status. If you love God, then this is what He calls you to do in this time & every time. I’m not perfect, but every now and then God will allow a sinner to deliver a perfect message because it comes through His spirit. #OneLove #iLive #SuicidePrevention #AgapeLove
