MercyfulGrace Grace Blog Diaries with the 'Love Agenda' - Go Sin No More by Àrèmúorin - Anthony Everest :: www.MercyfulGrace.com
Ok :) Each to their own I know my heart :: and so does he. The funny thing is that she is THE XTAIN extending out the loving hand unlike most of the rest extending out the condemning hand in Christ.
I’ve been commenting on a thread where New York Times best-selling author Demi Lovato, a christian, commented on loving people with alternative lifestyles - including gay people.
Demi was talking about the attitude towards sinners not the sin ..’ and was spot on! Imagine Every sinner picking on every other sinners weak spot and started quoting scriptures back and forth for and against ..’
It’d be an endless witch hunt of sanctimonious hypocrisy, buttressed by the fact that Jesus said, its finished on the cross on calvary.
I think folks forget, the self righteous appointed judges, the liar, the thief, the gossip, the drunk, the cheat and so forth will all end up in the same place if they don’t repent and find the Grace of God through Jesus - never mind the gays alone! - if thats your point. Salvation is free and not just for some.
Jesus condemned “all” sexual activity outside of marriage between a man and woman when He said, “Out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications…these defile a man” (Matthew 15:19).
That includes coitos between boys and girls, teens and adults - before marriage and couples who cheat on their spouses, as rampant as you could find a penny. Why can’t you see that salvation does not cherry pick and a sin, is a sin, is a sin.
Love covers a multitude of sins and thats what God gave, Love through - Christ Jesus. “Above all keep your love for one another fervent, because love covers a multitude of sins”. 1 Peter 4:8
(Another, beautiful, but subtle point she raised - on Love*)
These are all parts and parcels of the point Demi was driving home ..’ God is the supreme - Judge. Not you, or I, or the Pope. We just need to accept all of our faults and seek the face of God through Christ Jesus. (Hopefully, I haven’t’ offended the none christians, here too)
"All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away". Isaiah 64:6
I’m almost tired of repeating myself on this post. May God give us the revelation to seek his kingdom gracefully that we may not perish policing others faults, thinking we are saved.
"Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Mathew 7:21
Even Abraham - had concubines …’ That’s another story, to start me off!
Mercy Oh Jesus - Mercy Oh God! That’s All I say for here on ..’
