so a couple days ago, because there were things going on in our world in regards to legalizing marriage equality (what exactly i'm not 100% sure, i think cases to legalize it compeltely) i have seen so many of these pictures pop up on people's profile pictures on facebook:
let me first just go ahead and put out there that if you didn't already figure, i'm 100% for traditional marriage; marriage between one MAN and one WOMAN. i beleive that's how God created marriage, and i believe that God is sovereign, and all knowing, and that He ieew exactly what He was doing when he created marriage in this fashion.
but as many of you have seen in the news, online, or in public in general, there is so much hate going out to those who are and are not for "marriage equality". my question is why? why is there so much hate?
you wanna know the answer to that?
sin. sin is why there is so much hate. sin is why people are the way they are. sin and our choices.
so in the end of the matter, we need to remember that we are all sinners. we have been since the Garden of Eden. we were created with a free will and when sin entered the world, we now had and still do have the opportunity to sin BY OUR CHOICES. God loves everyone, even those who partake in homosexuality. God see's all sin the same. there is nothing that we could do that is worse then, or not worse than something else someone does.
also remember that because God is love, we need to love as well. it doesn't matter what someone has done. it didn't matter to Christ when he died for us. it still doesn't matter how horrid we have been. God loved us enough to send his only Son to die; to die for us. that's true, real love. so the least we can do is show everyone God's love in return.
so i just wanted to leave you with some words that i saw on facebook with the above picture that i thought fit perfectly with what i was thinking in regards to this "marriage equality"
"God does not preach against love, it's never been about love. It's about sexual immorality. The Lord loves you, and whether you love Him or not, He died for you. He has made you pure and perfect, just have faith in this."
"Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God." 1 Corinthians 6:9-11
