Hey, Christians, let’s not show our self-righteous rear-ends over this issue…I know that’s a strange thought, but let’s think before we react.
When you turn your nose up, or gasp in disbelief at the culture God has strategically placed you in, you’re not being a “good Christian” for “standing up for what you believe in”. You’re, actually, giving people that don’t know Jesus a reason to continue to not know Jesus. It’s great that you are trying to behave in a way that’s “holy”, but let’s remember that our “holy behavior” is rubbish in the sight of God and if it wasn’t for the grace of God through Jesus, we would all be screwed!!
Living a life that reflects scripture is great, but not if it results in elevating ourselves above others. I’m not saying the behavior of other people can’t make you uncomfortable, I’m just asking that we don’t act like idiots and say things that would make us sound like a Pharisee….especially, if our true motivation is that we just don’t want to have to explain to our kids why two men adopted a child…
Considering I’m typing this on my phone, at work, I’m not even going to list the examples in scripture of how Jesus interacted with/approached people living an “immoral” life as a result of never being change by him from the inside out.
So, what are yall having for dinner?
