To be or not to be Christian

In an interview earlier this week, Senator John Kerry shared his thoughts on gay marriage and homosexuality. Raised Catholic, Kerry explained he believed “gays” were born with homosexuality “in their genes” and that was “a part of who these people are”. He followed with his opinion on gay marriages describing the civil union as “different from the institution of marriage which is a religious contract”. This type of modern thinking and acceptance is at the root of sexual impurity around our world and part of the decay in society today.

Much like free speech, homosexuality has gone too far! By allowing extremists to profit from their ungodly way of life, we continue to open doors leading straight to Hell. America has become the breeding ground for ungodly social activists, sexual predators and moral rebels all because we chose to empower political leaders who are driving American values away from the Church.

Today’s roadmaps are drawn using capitalist pens rather than religious ones. The bible clearly instructs to stray from such decadence, still we continue to put money first, followed by sex, then pride… For many, God is nowhere to be found!

This HAS to change!

Do Christian thieves exist? Christian adulterers? How about Christian homosexuals? Where do we draw the line between criminal sin, religious or moral sin, and “genetic” sin? The fact is, there is no line. It’s not our job to categorize sin. It is our job to keep ourselves and others from heading down the road to moral decay, not to make excuses for it.

God has chosen you to spread His message. One of our missions in life is to love others, but it is often confused with accepting others as they are. Be a voice of reason in other’s lives, as someone has probably been in yours. Sometimes to love requires us to point out the darkness in someone’s life, and pray that they find light. A Christian cannotcontinue to sin.

We must put God first in our lives or we will get lost! Putting God first includes living according to His will and not accepting sin as “pre-programed genetic behavior”. It’s not okay to sin or keep justifying sin by telling ourselves we are imperfect beings. Neither is backing political leaders who claim sin is “a way of life and who we are”.

Jesus lived a life without sin and God created us to follow in His footsteps. We should never accept any other way of life.

Let’s pray!

Father God;
We thank you for your blessings in our lives
And for allowing us to worship you,
We praise you Lord for all that you provide for us
Each and every day.

God we ask you to forgive our sins
And make us stronger in the days ahead
So that we may become more like you
And strive for perfect lives.

Lord we know we are imperfect
But we continue to ask for your strength
So that we may stray from temptation
And help those around us do the same.

Holy Father we ask you to inspire our leaders
To change their ways and put you first
Rather than continue to drown in denial
And drag us deeper into sin.

God we love you and thank you for all that surrounds us!

Praise God,
Amen!
