I’m A Better Christian Than You Are . . .

ImABetterChristianThanYou3

I’m currently reading Peter Hubbard’s book, Love Into Light (The Gospel, the Homosexual, and the Church).  I highly recommend that every Christian read this book.  God has really opened my eyes to 1) the lack of compassion I’ve had towards individuals who feed their SSA (same sex attraction) and 2) my ignorance regarding those who’ve been born again and are celibate but who still have lingering, unwanted SSA.

Having standards doesn’t have to include a mean spirited, prideful, my laundry doesn’t smell as bad as your laundry attitude. Yes, I believe the Bible is the inerrant Word of God and that one can enter Heaven only through salvation in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. In addition, I also believe that marriage is one man and one woman.  Thirdly, yes, I believe homosexuality and any sex outside of marriage are sins–but so are lying, stealing, idolatry, gluttony, and adultery–to name just a few examples.  And No, I do not believe that one can be both a Christian and a practicing homosexual.

All of us have a God-sized void that we try to fill with different things–drugs, sex, porn, food, TV, social media, etc.  This void is one that only Jesus Christ Himself can fill. My sin of thinking I’m a better Christian than a celibate Christian who struggles with SSA is no less a sin than the act of homosexuality itself.  When I view a homosexual as a subhuman creature, such egotistical arrogance is sin.  All are made in the image of God, although not all will choose salvation in Jesus.  We’re all wretched individuals without Christ in our hearts. Thankfully the ground is level at the foot of the Cross!!
