How judgemental! I couldn’t believe it when I read how one of our nations pop icons, Miley Cyrus, came out with the following statement concerning her sexuality:
“I am literally open to every single thing that is consenting and doesn’t involve an animal and everyone is of age. Everything that’s legal, I’m down with. Yo, I’m down with any adult—anyone over the age of 18 who is down to love me. I don’t relate to being boy or girl, and I don’t have to have my partner relate to boy or girl.”
I mean, I know why my horribly judgemental belief system would not approve of an intimate relationship with an animal or child, but how judgemental of Miley! Who is she to say what is right or is wrong. Who does she think she is, God?
(pause for sarcastic effect)
Why does our culture applaud the freedom of everyone to think what they want, except Christians? If Christians hold to Biblical teaching/beliefs we are looked at as jerks, bigots, & hatefilled idiots. But if anyone else purports a belief of something outside of Biblical morality they are embraced and applauded?
Yet, here is my greatest concern – In an attempt to be more palatable to those around us, the church is losing its resolve to hold true to the Bible and have started mixing the thought processes of culture with Biblical truth. This isn’t anything new. It was the big issue with the church of Corinth 2000 years ago. It was also the warning the Apostle Paul shared with Timothy, “For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.” (2 Timothy 4:3-4 ESV)
Hear me – I say all of this full of faith. I am not hopeless. I love Jesus. I love the USA. (I love Jesus more obviously) God see’s all of this. He has not left us. Stand firm in your faith and let’s watch as the Lord stirs and purifies His church! The best is yet to come!
