My last post about thought reform and conditioning (not about homosexuality) created still more discussion about homosexuality and sin, just like the post that preceded it (which also wasn't about homosexuality). It's almost as if the people getting all up in arms about sin and homosexuality don't realize that they're serving as the proof of the merit of what I was writing.
I sometimes wonder if I'm writing in a foreign language, and if not, if some people can see through their threatened, angry emotions to actually read what's been written. In my last post, I even said the following in reference to the post prior...
"And, once again, I didn't even write about homosexuality, by default taking no position on it! Although it always happens to varying degrees, that post was a masterclass of an example of people reading in to what I wrote rather than reading it. What a shame."
...and, there you have here it again - for the post prior, just like last time.
So for those whose hearts are literally breaking over the GLBT community, believing they've punched a one-way ticket to hellfire and brimstone, having made a deliberate choice to live a sinful, depraved lifestyle...I have a solution for ya.
Pray for them. It's that simple.
I don't mean this...
"Dear God, please show the gays the truth of the sin of homosexuality."
That would seem to me to be a selfish prayer, prayed by someone who doesn't genuinely care about the person they're praying for, the truth, or even really God. The person who would pray such a prayer would seem to me to only care about the comfort and security of their own paradigm.
Try something like this...
"Dear God, please show them the truth, Your truth."
If your heart/motive is genuine in your prayer, that should be more than enough.
While you're at it, ask the same for yourself. I always do.
