It seems that yesterday’s post got a lot of hits (Even with a typo in the title), but no one felt the need to comment on it. I guess I can’t be surprised. People are attracted to provocative arguments, but they don’t want to join the discussion. I can only imagine what people were thinking when they saw that pop up on my Facebook wall.
Here at Worthy of the Gospel, I try to stress the importance of seeing people as God sees them. The fact that we typically are drawn to shocking subject titles shows us how many barriers we put up in our lives. I’ve often asked people if they would be willing to invite a homosexual couple over to their house for dinner as willingly as they would invite the heterosexual couple who is living together without being married. I know there is a lot more to this issue than the superficial point I’m making. I don’t mean to trivialize the issue. But when I look at the story of Jesus, I see Him opening His time up to the people rejected by society. Yet, it was the religious crowds that Jesus scolded and publicly lashed.
Although I didn’t mean to offend anyone, and I’m sorry if you were offended by yesterday’s post, I do hope that you were challenged, as I was, to look into your own life in perspective of the gospel and remember from where you came and how powerful grace really is.
