Reacting To Gay and Lesbian Activism

Today at Heritage Christian University there is a group of Gay and Lesbian activists marching in protest against the school. The reason for their protest is mind-blowing and only something that could happen in America. We have become so politically correct that we have forgotten the rights of Christians.

This group is traveling the south and visiting Christian schools. They basically called the school and told them they were coming and wanted to teach their “lifestyle” to the students. They told them they wanted class rooms and facilities to do this. The school’s response was done with sternness, but also with love. They did not allow them to come on their campus and teach something that the administration doesn’t believe. The way in which this group responds is, if they don’t get their way, they protest. That’s what is going on right now as I write this.

Guess who was invited to the “show.” The media of course. It’s going to be interesting to see what the media in our area does with this. Too far one way or the other will destroy them.

Now, I’m well aware of how the church has been cruel, in some cases, when it comes to this issue, but in this case the oppression and pressure has come from the other side for the purpose of media exposure and attention. God help us to love the sinner and deal with the sin, but don’t let us forget the sin. To say that I love homosexual people is the truth, but having same sex sex is not natural and goes against what God has called his people to be.

The scriptures are clear. (Romans 1:25-27 NCV) “They traded the truth of God for a lie. They worshiped and served what had been created instead of the God who created those things, who should be praised forever. Amen. {26} Because people did those things, God left them and let them do the shameful things they wanted to do. Women stopped having natural sex and started having sex with other women. {27} In the same way, men stopped having natural sex and began wanting each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and in their bodies they received the punishment for those wrongs.”

God help us to know how to reach out to people of all faiths, races, genders, and lifestyles with the truth of Jesus and to call this world back to a “Jesus lifestyle” of love, compassion, and service to others.

    This group came to APU, where my kids graduated, and were shown grace but not acceptance of their lifestyle. I think several of the “brotherhood” universities have welcomed them without embracing their propaganda. It will be interesting to see how this plays out in Florence, AL.

    There has to be a level of welcoming as one would do to folks battling alcohol or drug abuse but at the same time being clear that there needs to be help that leads to change on their part. Sin is sin. By the same token there needs to be tolerance on this group’s part to not disrupt the learning environment.

    Agree with you, Greg, and Cecil. There ARE some things that are crystal clear and cannot be twisted to suit the purposes of the twister. This is one of them. It’s also clear in the pages of the Bible of what our attitude should be toward the sinner as opposed to the sin. I think I’m only repeating what you and the others have said, so I’ll hush.

    …..but for some reason, the AA group that meets in our church building comes to mind in this discussion. A few members of the congregation have expressed disdain, among other things, for these poor souls standing around the back door smoking. So, they respectfully moved across the parking lot. Which is as it should be; they complied. But a few of our members, I think, would have booted them out altogether………
