GOD’S LOVE IS NOT BIGOTRY


A child not trained by loving parents will, inevitably, do things that will lead to decisions that will bring upon them trouble and/or injury and even death. This is unquestionably evidenced by the amoral condition of our societies today. This is true in the natural world in which we live and, it is even truer in the supernatural realm from where life has been granted to us all. Just as parents should have certain unquestionable expectations for their children to follow, it is certain that GOD does!

Your, my and everyone else’s opinion about what we think is right and wrong matters not. The only opinion that carries weight is what GOD has said!, and, the only voice that can accurately explain to people what GOD has said is the person/s who believes in and who adheres to a Biblical/Christian world-view. Homosexuality, as well as all other behaviors that are revealed in Scripture to be sin and an offence to GOD, must be confronted with the Word of GOD in hopes of the hearer realizing their hopelessness before the holy “Father GOD” who will judge all of humanity based upon the life they have lived.

This is why the true Christian witness is despised by today’s moral-relativistic societies. It is not hate and bigotry to tell someone that how they think, speak and choose to live is wrong. It is the only true expression of human love that can rescue evil people from the terrible anger of GOD which will one day come upon all people who hate GOD, and who have rejected GOD’s gift of love through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ upon the cross of Calvary.

This is, according to Scripture, foolishness to the person who does not have an understanding of the message of the Gospel, but, neither does ignorance excuse all people whom GOD has declared evil and are also commanded by GOD to repent. This is why the person/s whose life has been transformed by the recreative work of GOD unto salvation will not be intimidated by, nor will they avoid confronting the culture in which they live in hopes of reaching those who are granted the free gift of salvation.
Having an appreciation for the undeserved mercy and forgiveness of GOD is the compelling factor in authentic Christian witness and testimony. We love people because GOD first loved us, and we know that apart from the correction of GOD we also would, like a child whose parents do not correct them, endure trouble and injury in this life and inevitably, eternal death.

Rather than calling someone a bigot, a hater, or the many different vulgar names spewed from the mouths of those who are truly intolerant, maybe you should seriously consider the courage it takes and the authentic expression of love shown to you by the person/s used by GOD to lead you to salvation.

It is your GOD given privilege to choose to believe in GOD or to not believe. This is what separates humanity from all other created things. What a privilege we have been given to know GOD in this life and to learn about GOD and, to one day see GOD face to face, and will forever enjoy the awe-inspiring realization of fellowship with the man-GOD, Jesus Christ. Heaven awaits those who with child-like faith believes and trusts in GOD for the promise of salvation. But to those who are rebellious, HELL has been prepared. To reject Jesus as Savior and as sovereign LORD is to spit in GOD’s face! This is not something that I recommend you do…

Repent of your sin and live. Repent not and you will be damned! This is the Christ-centered biblical Gospel that must be preached.

  1. A simple bible verse is GOD is Love: I like to read 1 Corinthians chapter 13 called the Love chapter.
    verse 6 , Rejoiceth not in Iniquity,but rejoiceth in the Truth. And now abideth Faith,Hope charity these three;
    but the Greatest of these is LOVE.

    Also 1 john chapter 4 verse 7 thru 21. No man has seen GOD at any time. If we love one another, GOD dwellth in us, and his Love is perfected in us. Herein is Love, not that we loved GOD, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if GOD so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

    If a man say, I love GOD, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he has seen,how can he Love GOD whom he hath not seen? And this commandment have we from him, that he who loveth GOD love his brother also.
