Discouraged

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 . . .

One thought on “Discouraged

  1. Lynn,

    I feel the exact same way and I have just been trying to stay silent until God leads me in what to say. I am very disheartened that so many of those that I know who profess to be Christians are supporting a concept that goes blatantly against God’s Word. He created us, we did not create ourselves or Him. Who are we as humans to think that we know better than the Creator? He is sovereign and knows what’s best. If we profess Christ, then we have to accept and follow His teaching. This has nothing to do with hating anyone. Everyone has free will, but free will does not negate the truth of the Word or give anyone the right to change the Word. My heart is heavy and breaks with you.
