Struggling to be Christian.

Posted: December 27, 2012 in LGBT Isuses

I wish God would come down RIGHT NOW and sort out this whole Gay marriage thing. Because, frankly, I’m tired of it. If you want LGBT people in your church then you have to either accept them as they are or make it clear that your religion does not allow them in. Remember that, in doing so you may be shutting Christ out with them, after all, he spent his time with Tax Collectors and sinners like us.

The truth is, now when I read the idiotic statements of people who have, either never studied the subject in depths, or have simply gone by what their mother told them instead of researching it for themselves, I get angry, really angry, I feel that we are not given a chance to speak, just always they publish the views of the haters.

Here is just a few little snippets of information that might help make them more informed.

1. The King James Bible was commissioned by James the 1st, who is commonly known as a gay man. He had open gay relationships. Monogamous loving relationships. The translators wishing to try and get at him translated the verses in such a way as it outlawed homosexuality. To quote James, “I, James, am neither a god nor an angel, but a man, like any other. Therefore I act like a man and confess to loving those dear to me more than other men. You may be sure that I love the Earl of Buckingham more than anyone else, and more than you who are here assembled. I wish to speak in my own behalf and not to have it thought to be a defect, for Jesus Christ did the same, and therefore I cannot be blamed. Christ had John, and I have George.”

James was convinced that Jesus love for John was that of a gay relationship as we know it, I don’t know if I agree or not, but John does refer to himself as the disciple whom Jesus loved but that is agape love  so I don’t think you can take that inference from it.

2. God omitted a marriage service, in fact, to go further never even talked about it. He gave Noah instructions to build an ark, Moses instructions to build a tent, but never bothered to even talk about how to conduct a marriage service. In fact it seems to me there are more instructions on divorce than marriage, Jesus ofcourse said that divorce was given because of man’s hard hearts, I wonder if the same could be said of marriage.

3. 46% of marriages in the UK fail anyway. So what’s the big fuss, why not give LGBT people the chance to fail as well.

4. Gay people will get into loving, monogamous relationships, with, or without other peoples approval, they always have, and they always will, because love is far more powerful than hate. In fact those that hate us in the name of Christ, in fact just make us want to love even more. At the end of things, God will judge those who judge others with the same measure that they use to judge them.
