Don't ask God to legitimize demands

Success - Article sent! close

There's always a little statement in the upper left-hand corner of the Daily Herald's Opinion page that reads, "Our aim: To fear God, tell the truth and make money."

After seeing your front page for Jan. 19, I'm wondering which God you're talking about. It can't be the God of the Bible. The God of the Bible does not approve of homosexual behavior, and yet your front page said, "Married with the eyes of God."

You know, I couldn't see the picture of the couple that was the subject of the headline because the paper was folded over. But because I have been continually bombarded with pro-gay propaganda from your paper for the last several years, I knew immediately what this was about.

My question is why would anyone who is openly and knowingly disobeying God want to get his approval for their marriage? To me, this would be like a little kid punching his brother in the eye in front of his mom and then asking his mom to give him a kiss. She's his mom; she may eventually kiss him, but she must deal with his sinful act first. It just doesn't make sense.

The saddest thing of all is to read about all the so-called "Christian" pastors and churches who don't seem to see anything wrong with this either.

A Christian is one who has put his or her trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. The book of John in the Bible says, "But to all who did receive Him, who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God." A true Christian wants to obey the one who died for him. A true Christian doesn't try to force God to legitimize his own demands.
