I get it. You’re used to being able to use the bible as your spiritual baseball bat, beating down anyone you do not agree with. We must look small from way up there on your high horse.
The thing is, Jesus is not on your side. Oh sure, He loves you, absolutely without question. But that thing you’re doing, making others feel worthless and small? Yeah, no.
“There is only one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor?” – James 4:12
I mean, I think that’s pretty straightforward, but just in case-
“Therefore you have no excuse, O man, every one of you who judges. For in passing judgment on another you condemn yourself, because you, the judge, practice the very same things. We know that the judgment of God rightly falls on those who practice such things. Do you suppose, O man—you who judge those who practice such things and yet do them yourself—that you will escape the judgment of God?” – Roman’s 2:1-3
You see, the LGBT Community is not trying to get on your bad side. Many of us are Christians, trying to live a life that is pleasing and honoring God. Ultimately, He is the one with final say. I love Him, I KNOW He loves me. Do I make mistakes? Absolutely. At the end of the day, my walk with God is between myself and the Father.
Instead of judging, ostracizing, hating, making fun of, or rejecting those of us that live differently than you do, maybe get to know us. Maybe then you’ll realize we’re not that different after all.
