Actor and Christian evangelist Kirk Cameron has been blasted in the news as of late over his traditional beliefs on the way marriage should be (between a man and a woman) and that Homosexuality is unnatural and not what God intended
“I believe that marriage was defined by God a long time ago. Marriage is almost as old as dirt, and it was defined in the garden between Adam and Eve: one man, one woman for life — till death do you part. So I would never attempt to redefine marriage, and I don’t think that anyone else should either. So do I support the idea of gay marriage? No, I don’t.”
First of all, good job Kirk on standing up for the biblical standard of marriage when many others would just differ to the popular of pluralism (anything goes). It is interesting that people who ascribe to this view of pluralism will go out of their way to bash Christians on our views of marriage. If anything really does go, they shouldn’t be judging us.
Gay rights activists often complain that the Christian view of marriage is too judgemental and it comes from the “fact” that “Christians are Homophobic.”
I would like to put some things right here. First of all I have never gone out of my way to tell a homosexual person that they are doomed to go to hell…because God can go about effecting change in anyone’s life. I don’t cringe in fear when homosexuals come around. I respect them as people. Everyone was born into sin (including me…I’m just as bad as anyone and I need Jesus as much as anyone else does) ever since Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden. In a way, what they say is true Christians should not hate homosexuals. I do not hate them as people, but I do not support what they do.
“Love the sinner, Hate the sin.” It’s a hard concept for most people to grasp these days when who a person is seems to be so tied up in what they do. Contrary to popular belief, Homosexuality is not engrained so deep inside a person that it is impossible for them to change. God did not create you to be a homosexual for your entire life. In the beginning God created Adam and Eve to be married and live life together. If God had intended it to be any other way he would have gone about it differently in the beginning.
