I ask you, who call yourself a Christian, and is sitting there appalled with homosexuality being regarded as something praiseworthy - why not ?
how many times you have been to the movies and hoped the good guy and the
girl got together, even though she was married to another, or even though they
both had built their relationship on illicit sex (fornication). Remember how many times u talked to your friends, those who had sex with
their boyfriends/girlfriends, as if it were absolutely normal, and you wanted them to stay together without ever suggesting that they should be
married to do what they were doing every night.
We've spent too much time dealing with sinful sexuality as if it were normal. You've accepted the mundane version of sexuality that is all based on feelings and that what matters is love.
That actually is not love - it's lust. But our society has decided to call lust for love, then you accept it as valid. Yes, all is worth it in the name of love. "May it not be immortal, since it is but a flame, may it be infinite while it lasts," says the poet. How beautiful, you say. What matters is love.
friend (or brother, if you prefer), for a long time our society
has treated sexuality as a toy, subject to sinful treats of the human beings. From sex
outside marriage to homosexual practice it is but a leap - okay
that is a complicated leap because it involves prejudice, but it is an obvious
leap from the viewpoint of logic. And as we live in a post- Christian society, homosexuality wants to be legitimized through marriage. The homosexuality wants to be part of a society that values the religious version of family. But
this is not because the homosexual wants out of fornication and wants holy
form of sex. It is just that our post- Christian society has become
accustomed to values and institutions like marriage. It's just that. There is nothing sacred or Christian in a homosexual marriage. As there is nothing Christian or sacred in a marriage between fornicators or adulterers.
When you friend got married pregnant and you thought she looked gorgeous with that belly showing, the problem was as serious as it is now. Once u open the door and kick morality out, anything goes. Homosexuality yes . Why not? And if that is not what you want, u will have to say no to a lot that you have been saying yes to for a long time.
Each of us - appalled at the current state of our "Christian" society - has a bit of guilt if we have held this behavior .
Sin is not - never was - something we exalt as beautiful. Sin is ugly. Be homosexuality, fornication or adultery. When
we sin we should feel shame and repent, and fall prostrate at the feet
of the Lord, instead of hitting our chest with pride to say that we did
everything in the name of love. Every time we did that, or applauded whoever did it, we opened the door to what we have today. Homosexuality yes . Why not? God have mercy on us.
