Proverbs 19:25-27 Smite a scorner, and the simple will beware: and reprove one that hath understanding, and he will understand knowledge. He that wasteth his father, and chaseth away his mother, is a son that causeth shame, and bringeth reproach. Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.
Today it is so easy to hear several viewpoints on every idea around. Just the other day in the news there were young girls in a school in Michigan who were caught on video beating up another young girl in that school. When interviewed and asked why they did such a terrible thing, their response was this girl flaunted her lesbianism in their face all year long. She had come on to several of them and when they reported her, no one did anything about it, so they did. Now, schools in Michigan are spending thousands of taxpayers’ dollars to bring in therapists and psychologists to teach the teachers and staff how to teach the students at these schools to be tolerant of sexual diversity.
Now before I go too far you must understand something. I am not for today’s youth, or anyone for that matter, beating up on another person. Violence is never the right answer. I believe these girls were wrong for doing what they did to this young lady and they should be taught that this behavior is never appropriate. Sin never fixes sin.
Nevertheless, I read in scripture that homosexuality is a sin. So why is the government teaching the majority to tolerate the sin of the minority? Why not teach those who claim to be gay, to be more discreet about their lifestyle? Better yet, why not teach everyone what God’s Word says about all sin, and how Jesus loves them, and died to pay the price for all sin?
The reason is quite simple. It is because the world loves sin. They will try to teach us sin is ok and that we should accept it. The Bible clearly says “Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.” We must judge all wisdom by the unerring Word of God. If God calls something a sin, it is simply sin.
THE WORD WALKING IN ME:
Our lot in life is not to beat up those who disagrees with us. It is to present the Gospel of our Lord and allow God, through the Holy Spirit, to do a work in their heart. It is also to be constantly in the Word of God ourselves so we can know the difference. “Study to show yourself approved unto God…”
