CLARITY – 6-10-19 The Most Important Thing

CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events -6-10-19

The Most Important Thing

What’s Happening: “In a display of global solidarity, gay pride parades were celebrated over the weekend in Detroit, D.C., Warsaw, etc. Although the Warsaw parade was attended by Mayor Rafal Trzakowski and was mostly peaceful, the others were marred by Neo-Nazis and other protesters, some stampeding when they thought there was gunfire heard (https://www.yahoo.com/news/lgbt-pride-marches-us-interrupted-090526604.html). ‘Literally f****** Nazis are at Motor City Pride right now, please be safe out there y’all,

Even if they deserve it, do not engage. Our safety at our Pride is the most important thing,’ tweeted one attendant. Not much covered by the main-stream media (MSM) was a straight pride parade in Boston, naming Alt-Right (and gay) provacateur Milo Yiannopolous as Marshall (https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2019/06/straight-pride-parade-milo-yiannopoulos-marshal.html). Brad Pitt’s name and image were used to advertise the event. He said he was not ‘super happy’ about it, either.”

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Wow! Straight Pride parade. It’s about time!”

Biblical Response:  “Led by a gay guy? I don’t know. He wants to celebrate tolerance when God is not so tolerant of his choice of a lifestyle (1 Cor. 6:9; 1 Tim. 1:10). Sure, society wants to be inclusive, to not judge, but the most quoted scripture: ‘judge not’ (Matt. 7:1) is taken completely out of context (read verse 2). We are not called to tolerance. In fact, we will be judging angels (1 Cor. 6:3). Don’t get me wrong, I am for tolerance….redefined…I call it patience. The scripture even says He is being (seemingly) slow about His promised return because He’s giving more time for sinners to repent (2 Pet. 3:9). As for safety being ‘the most important thing’…not from God’s perspective.”

“Christians? We believe the Lordship of Christ is the most important thing (Rom. 10:9-10). And although Jesus died for all, not all receive Him (John 1:12). It’s kind of like your Grandma giving you a Christmas present, which ,during clean-up, you accidentally  kicked under the couch. If you ask Grandma if she gave you a gift, she will say she did. You, however, never opened (or received the intended benefit of) her ‘free gift’ (Rom. 6:23).”

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to keep the most important thing the most important thing…and help us to be patient…hating the sin, while loving the sinner (Prov. 29:27 LB); in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
