Starbucks’ alleged statement that “if you don’t support gay marriage, we don’t want your business” may or may not be true.
There are Christians in the camp who believe our rights as believers are truly being taken away — all because something that is against the Bible’s teaching was legalized in our country.
Yet the Bible says Christians don’t have rights. The Son of Man didn’t even have a place to lay his head.
I wish we weren’t segregating ourselves as Christians… Now we won’t buy Starbucks, Doritos, or from any company that features gay marriage in their marketing.
What God is calling for in the Bible… what Jesus actually did; I just don’t see happening. Rather: I see Christians on one side of a chasm, and a dying world on the other. All because we don’t appreciate some marketing?
To me, Christians should be rubbing shoulders with people who need Jesus, just like Jesus himself did 3,000 years ago.
Jesus died to save ALL people. We’re all equally messed up. So what’s with the pointing of fingers and ranking of sins?
So what is this answer the Bible gives?
1. “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and
2. love your neighbor as yourself.” Luke 10:26-27
I think gay people and Christians, people in state penitentiaries and in Churches, people who struggle with addictions or disorders, or have sticky relationships…. all need to hear the sweet gospel story again, afresh;
God died for you. He loves you that much.
