Supreme Court Ruling
Well, I'm not going to make any friends with this post, but it's laying heavily on my heart. The Supreme Court ruling. We've all heard about it. What is bothering me is not necessarily the ruling, but the response to it.
Our pastor always says, "You can't blame the lost for acting lost." But what about the "Christians"? Those that say they believe the Bible?
The Bible is very clear that homosexuality is a sin.
Leviticus 18:22 NIV
 “ 'Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.
Romans 1:26-27 NIV
 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones.  In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
1 Corinthians 6:9 NIV
 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men.
Those are just a few examples. Now, I am NOT saying homosexuality is worse than say, gossiping, but the difference is that I repent of that sin and with Gods help, change my life and stop gossiping. The person living a homosexual lifestyle is not repenting and changing their ways. We are called to love the homosexual, just not the sin.
My point here is Christians either don't know their Bible or are allowing the cultural norms to compromise their beliefs. I was incredibly saddened yesterday by the "Christians" on Facebook that were showing their support in various ways.
We either believe all of our Bible or none of it. We can't pick and choose, to do so cheapens the gospel and is incorrect. Believing in the Bible forms a lot of our convictions and we need to stand for them!
