Our Hypocrisy Toward Gay Marriage

Description

When we deal with subjects like same-sex marriage, let’s be sure we first look in the mirror. Let’s recognize that all sin displeases God.

How can you say to your brother, "Let me take the speck out of your eye," and behold, the log is in your own eye?” (Matthew 7:4).

Here are some humbling statistics: The level of premarital sex among teenage Christians is no different from those who are not Christian. And divorce rates in the church are no different from those outside the church. When you look at these statistics, is it any wonder that gay activists look at us and cry, “Hypocrites!” And most troubling of all—their charge is valid.

Jesus made it clear that God never desires divorce and that premarital sex, adultery, lust, and homosexuality are all sins. But too often the church focuses on homosexuality and ignores several sins God’s Word lists alongside it. We often park on one sin and neglect the multiplicity of sins that are continual within the body of Christ. Gay activists see the obvious hypocrisy and use it to self-righteously justify their own actions.

When we deal with subjects like same-sex marriage, let’s be sure we first look in the mirror. Let’s recognize that all sin displeases God. May we repent of our sins and seek to reach out with the love and hope of Jesus Christ to all humanity. Remember that no sin is too difficult to be forgiven and overcome by the power of the cross.
