I wonder sometimes about the thinking process of Christians in our day and age. Some are all excited about a new law allowing homosexuals to marry, some are enraged that their country could come to this place. Do the Christians living in this world today really think that the laws of this government, or any government in this world will be conformed to the law of God? This nation is one of a few that has enjoyed much of its history governed by laws that reflect the moral judgements of God based on His word the Bible. But the reality is that the world has been and will be on a downward trend until the Christians are removed completely and the remaining people will rule without God’s righteousness as a standard.
I do not feel that this is the battle that we as Christians should be fighting anyway. It is the same with all other social issues that wander through our lawmaking process, and then ultimately are interpreted by the Supreme Court. That said, I still believe my Bible when it says that homosexuality is wrong and is not what he designed.
No, the battle that the Christian faces in this world is not one of flesh and blood but one that is spiritual. Eventually the laws and morals of this country and other countries will affect the life and safety of the Christian, as it has in so many other lands and peoples where believers are persecuted. But for us as well as for them, our battle still is not fought in the legislative branch of our government but against the Gates of Hell. We attack the gates of Hell when we show individuals who need to be saved from their sin that the Lord Jesus Christ died for them. To show them the love of God in our lives as well as in our words.
Yes, we as believers in the Lord Jesus Christ have a battle cry, and it is “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.” Should we hate the homosexual? No! They are just like all humans that are born into this world. We are all sinners in the eyes of God, We all were born in sin and in need of a savior.
When someone trusts in the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, whatever sin had characterized their life before, we are NOT to bend the word of God for their lifestyle as a means of being tolerant but we are to teach the word to them. We are to let God convict them of his perfect will for their life. It is my belief that if someone trusts the Lord for salvation and walks with the Lord and reads and obeys the Word of God, they will allow God to change them. Then the sins of their past lives will fall away as the new man that the Lord created them to be emerges and shines to a lost world.
I certainly hope your light is shining today.
