Gay Marriage: When discussing gay marriage with other straight people here in the Bible belt, my support of the topic is usually unpopular. Often, people will say, “I have a gay friend, (or brother, or brother-in-law, or cousin…..or whatever), and I love him/her…………..BUT, I don’t condone their lifestyle or think they should be able to marry.” Of course they use Christianity and the Bible to back their views. You may remember that my cousin said it, and I’ve heard others say nearly the same thing.
My deep thought is this: Isn’t someone saying they have, “lots of gay friends” but openly campaigning against their freedom alot like the leader of the KKK saying, “I have lots of African American friends”?
Belief Isn’t Enough: The following is paraphrased from last Sunday’s sermon: Some people like to say it is enough just to say you believe, that’s all you have to do and you’ll go straight to heaven. Well, satan believes in God and Christ. He knows they’re real. Still think belief is enough?
