My home page on my web browser is Google. When I logged on to the internet on June 4, I was told that Google was “celebrating 50 years of pride.” For those who didn’t know, June is Pride Month. Google was celebrating how gay pride has gained momentum over the past 50 years. I don’t know how this could have escaped anyone’s notice, but Google (along with everyone else who supports the homosexual agenda) feels the need to shout it from the rooftops.
What was my initial reaction to the message from my homepage? I decided I didn’t need the internet that day. I immediately logged off. I must confess that I did log back on to do some banking and check my email, but my online time on that day was a fraction of what it usually is.
I will not be celebrating, lending endorsement to, tolerating, upholding, defending, etc., the sin of homosexuality in any shape, form, or fashion.
I do not hate homosexuals, nor anyone in the “so-called” LGBTQ community. I hate the sin of homosexuality. Yes, I said “hate.” As the psalmist said, “Through Your precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way” (Psalm 119:104). When we understand God’s righteousness, we learn that it is appropriate to hate every way that opposes what God has established.
I hate what this sin has done to the minds of people and to the moral standards of this nation. Homosexuality is against nature. “For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due” (Romans 1:26-27). It is a perversion of that which nature tells us is right. Once accepted, it leads to further perversion. Don’t think so? Fifty years ago is was just “gay pride.” Today it is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (or Questioning) pride. Who know what other letters will be added as we continue to plunge down the slope of moral depravity?
Celebrating 50 years of pride? More like celebrating 50 years of rebellion against God. Think about that. Fifty years. Our God is a patient God, isn’t He?
Dear Christian, please remember that we do not combat sin by joining in the celebration of sin. Nor do we combat sin by engaging in hatred or violence against our fellowman. Instead, we are to be “blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world” (Philippians 2:15).
