Hating Sin is Not Prejudice. It’s Biblical

Being raised in a Christian home with sweet parents who chastised the hurting of feelings or sarcasm that is spoken today (in my home as well) it’s not easy being an outspoken child of God. My upbringing tells me to “shush,” while my heart says “line that heathen out!” and the Spirit of God says, “Woah Shari… speak My words, not your own.” God’s words are not spoken in hate, they’re spoken in love. And hating sin, is not hating the sinner. We are all sinners.

So what’s a gal to do when the “Pride” of America is continually in your face with an ungodly agenda that is aimed at children. Be not deceived, the LBGTQ etc, etc, etc, does not care about my or your opinion, their focus is on our children. The group of video clip images that I put together below is from a video the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus put on YouTube last year. The clips are the lyrics of a song where they unashamedly make their agenda known. There is no doubt they will tell you this video was mean to fight the discrimination of their lifestyles and choices, which is true, but it takes nothing away from the meaning of the lyrics.

If the lyrics are not plain, they read like this:
  • You think that we’ll corrupt your kids
  • If our agenda goes unchecked
  • Funny, Just this once
  • you’re correct.
  • We’ll convert your children
  • Happens bit by bit
  • Quietly and subtly
  • And you will barely notice it.

If you think that agenda is only in California you would be deceived. It flows all the way to Calhoun County, West Virginia, I have witnessed it first hand myself. It’s extremely scary and it’s why mid June, (gay pride month) I’m ready to puke at the site of a symbol that still belongs to God although they’ve hijacked it temporarily. 🌈

The church, no denomination, but the body of Christ, has got to stand up and protect our kids. If a snake was creeping through the grass to attack your children, you’d take the steps necessary to stop the threat. This is no different. The agenda of the current political leftist and organizations as mentioned before is to confuse our children, and we’re allowing it to happen in a place that’s supposed to be educating them for the good. Everything from children’s stories to high school curriculum is now inundated with language meant to cause children to question creation.

Be not Deceived, Nor Ashamed

Paul said in Romans 1

1:16-32 KJV
[16] For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. [17] For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

Just as my parents tried to teach me to be still, not speak out of turn, and to never say anything that would hurt people’s feelings, the world now tells me the same thing for a different reason. God made everyone different, red, yellow, black and white and now rainbow, furries and every alphabet letter under the sun and all are “acceptable” and should be embraced as truth according to society. My grandsons jokingly spoke of the litter boxes that would soon be placed in their school to accommodate the “furries” (children who identify as animals) and again my stomach rolls over. I know their joking, but this is happening in America where children are permitted to behave as animals and disrupt classes without discipline, because it will hurt their little feeling This has happened because people who know God, and those who don’t but have at least common sense, have failed to open their mouths and say “enough.”

 

Be not Dumb, Nor Accepting

[18] For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; [19] Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. [20] For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: [21] Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. [22] Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

There is a fear that is instilled in the heart of man from birth. I believe it because I’ve felt it. As an unsaved child I knew there was a God. I knew I would stand before Him some day and I feared that day because, at that time, I had not gotten right with Him by accepting the sacrifice His Son made for me. Praise God, of all the evil I allowed myself to be exposed to, none of it took over my soul’s ability to discern right from wrong even though I didn’t always listen. But there comes a time where the scripture says that God gives them over to a reprobate mind and stops convicting them of their wickedness and they completely embrace it. Which is what has happened all across our country. Am I saying that they cannot be saved? No. That’s between them and God. But i can tell you the longer they accept wrong as right, they’ll be confused about it all.

Be not Defiled, nor Accused

I have countless Christian friends, and praise God the vast majority of them are wise and unaffected by the world’s viewpoint. But there are others, who do not fall into that category. I’ve struggled myself at times, because I want to be nice. I don’t want to tell someone they’re wrong. It might hurt their feelings and my Mother would give me that look. But it’s been a while since I’ve worried about that. Listen to Paul’s words in the upcoming verses.

[23] And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. [24] Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: [25] Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. [26] For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: [27] And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. [28] And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; [29] Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, [30] Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, [31] Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: [32] Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Is there any doubt what God thinks of homosexuality and the other nonsense going on in the sexually immoral world we live in? No. It’s clear as crystal and right as rain. And yet there are good Christian people who say they don’t know what the Bible says about homosexuality and believes that God is “okay” with it.

Is He okay with it when He says that behavior is worthy of death? And do you want your children or grandchildren or nieces and nephews, or friends standing in the judgment of God because you did not take a stand against sin? I’m asking me as well. I told you that I struggle with being “nice.” But I have determined in my heart that this battle against my grandchildren is as real as the one between Russia and Ukraine.

I had a preacher’s child tell me not long ago that Jesus said nothing about homosexuality. It broke my heart. I knew they were raised to know different, but the world had gotten their claws into this child’s soul and wasn’t going to let go easily. If you have children in your life… get on some armor from the word of God. You’re going to need it.

Shari Johnson. (aka The Jesus Chick) has been encouraging women of faith and youth for a closer walk with Christ for over ten years. Having a burden for the leadership in American Churches, much of her writing is meant to spear on the servant of God to do more for the cause of Christ in these uncertain times. With humor, transparency and solid bible teaching Shari outlines messages that are easily understood, life applicable, and often with easily remembered points to ponder in hopes that they’ll be reflected on throughout the day and serve as encouragement on the go. Her servant’s heart is grounded in her own local church believing that it is there that the greatest impact can be made and unfortunately suffers the greatest neglect across America. Shari speaks at women’s gatherings in hopes of leaving a giggle in their soul and a burning desire to serve in their own local body of believers having it said of her “I laughed, I cried, and I was drawn to the foot of the cross…” Which is what it’s all about. For information on scheduling Shari, call her direct at (304)377-6036, message her via email at talk2shari@gmail.com or find her on Facebook!
