Tonight I read an article about business owners here in Idaho that were going to have to close down shop….
It is amazing to me how divided our country has become. What if the roles were reversed and a gay owner no longer wanted to perform marriages for hetero-sexual couples…… Would we have the same kind of outcry? Why can’t God-loving people operate God honoring businesses and and just be left alone? It’s not like they are going out to bash and hurt people who live a lifestyle different than their own! How often do you see a Christian ostracizing the rest of the population for their beliefs in the main stream media? Not that often……yet those who live an alternative lifestyle cry foul at every turn. There is no such thing as equality if you live a life that doesn’t follow the World’s Standards. Instead you are called a hater. A bigot. Someone without love and compassion.
That is Hooey! I love Jesus and my call is to love those around me.
“Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate.”
Friends – we have to end this madness…..I love you but maybe I don’t love your sin. That isn’t the end of the world. Let’s get through this together!
IN THE SAME WAY!!!! Please love me….but I still sin. Don’t love my sin! Help me, hold me accountable. Tell me how important I am to you but how much I hurt you when I sin against you!!
Just because I have met Jesus in my own personal way does not mean I am without sin. It just means that I know I’m broken. I am wrecked. I made a mess of my life and only 1 thing saves me from spending eternity in Hell.
His name is Jesus and He Loves Me!
He loves you too even if you don’t know Him yet.
