I am a Christian and I love you...

Yesterday a big decision was made through the Supreme Court of The United States of America. They legalized the marriage between same gender couples. 

I am a Christian.

I believe what the Bible says is truth.

I believe that as a Christian we are called to love everyone.

I believe that homosexual relationships are a sin. 

I know that I sin. 

So what is the difference between my sins and someone who practices homosexuality? When I sin I ask for God's forgiveness and then I do my best to stop doing that sin. But when you are in a relationship with a member of the same gender and you claim to be a Christian, you are choosing sin over repentance. Everyday you make a choice to continue living in a way that the Bible says you are not to be living. 

So here is what is bothering me. I am frustrated with the decision that was made, but what frustrates me more is when I see people, who claim to be Bible believing, Christ following people that are saying they are happy that "love won". I'm saddened that they have been blinded by Satan about what the Bible clearly states. I'm upset that these are the people that are teaching our kids in school, in church, in camps.

I'm also frustrated that as Christians we are being told to be quiet about what we believe. It seems to me that if we don't believe what the main stream media believes then we are wrong. And yet, they say, be open to all beliefs...well all but those that are 100% what the Bible says.

In the Bible, John 10:10 Jesus says this:
10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
I firmly believe that what is going on in our world today is Satan. He is destroying our world. I don't know about you, but today I am going to stand up for what I believe to be true. I am going to choose the life that God has come to give to us. I am going to accept that his truth is what will set me free.

Get behind me Satan!
