One person read my blog post last night . . . pretty sure that’s it. I guess it’s good that I write more to get things off my chest than to have them read.
I’ve been on Facebook a good bit today . . . probably more than I should. I’m so disheartened by all the “celebratepride” profile pictures. It’s not the pictures of those who I know don’t call themselves Christian. It’s the believers, especially some that I didn’t realize had abandoned the truth of God’s Word. I’m debating staying off of Facebook for a week or so . . . my chest is actually heavy every time I see another rainbowed profile pic of someone who I thought cared about the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
I’ve never made a big deal about the homosexual issue. You see, I believe that if I help people find Jesus, HE will show them the truth. I am convinced that pushing a “be straight” agenda will not advance the gospel of Jesus Christ and that helping people be “straight” and not Christian will just send a lot of straight people to hell.
Maybe I should have made a bigger deal about it in the past. Maybe I should have pushed the issue. But the honest truth is that all of those who are pushing the issue have the population convinced that I and those like me are bigots and are haters. If I share my opinion, it is assumed I am a homophobe. It’s always amazed me that I’m a hater if I have an opinion, but those who hate my opinion are justified in bullying me into hiding my opinion.
The trick now is to share my opinion, to take a stand, without being judgmental or condemning. There’s so much I want to say. So many people’s statuses that I’ve almost commented on today. Instead I’ve kept a lot to myself and I’m starting to feel anxiety when I see a rainbow.
I hope at the very least this issue is calling all Bible believers to prayer . . .
