LOVE surely wins! (Open letter to the Church regarding the decision of the US Supreme Court)

It’s really hard to “oppose” when they are “POLITICALLY” correct. How will you defend your case when they don’t believe in the Bible and worse, some twist the meaning just to gain approval? Of course, I would rather be politically wrong and “unpopular” rather than go against my conviction (BIBLICALLY correct). But to my dear brethren, I guess, the question really now is, what shall we do now that they have made it the law of the land (at least in the US)? Every time I think of that, I can’t help but reflect, what have we done or have not done in the first place as a church? It’s sad sometimes that our attention is usually caught only when the damage has already been done – we try to repair but where were we when it was still time to “prevent” things from happening? It bothers us seeing how people define “freedom” nowadays but I believe, it aches us more seeing how they “mock” our faith so boldly. All these pictures of how they mimic the “crucifixion” that are circulated everywhere is not just troubling but excruciating. They say that “LOVE WINS” but no matter how they define what that love is, let us all the more show them the LOVE that we know. Yes, “show” them and not just “tell” them. I believe one reason why they find us self-righteous sometimes (or maybe, most of the times) is because we are so good in “talking” but so passive in “showing”. If there’s one thing that both sides would agree on is this: “by our fruits we will be recognized…” (Matthew 7:16) It is more popularly known as the “outcome”, “result”, “testimonies” or “consequence” of our choices. This is why the world looks at our performances because it’s like a “universal rule” – our lifestyle justifies our beliefs. Why am I saying this? They have chosen the path they want to take and we can never win them back by our mere words, we must show them the fruits of the TRUE FREEDOM and TRUE LOVE that we know. Let our lifestyle says it all (and yes, I am also talking to myself). Loving them doesn’t mean agreeing with them but at the same time, disagreeing with them doesn’t mean hating them. I think this is not the time to “argue” who is right and who is wrong (because it should be clear to us by now that TRUTH has now been subjective to the world) but it is also definitely not the time to do nothing. So let’s ask ourselves, “What would Jesus do?” It’s time to pray and be the answers to our prayers. As a final note, when Jesus was on the cross while witnessing the sins of the world, He prayed, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” (Luke 23:34, NIV). Imagine that moment. Feel the heart of Jesus. That my friends is the purest form of LOVE. Jesus showed us that LOVE surely wins!

  1. Reblogged this on God Bless You, Sister and commented:
    This is so true! Faith without good works is just as unfruitful without faith with good works. We need to show our love for Jesus Christ as well as for others who may not know who he is but through us, as we know who he is, they would see him through us. This is so hard to come by some of the time because of our flesh; even as Christians our flesh can get in the way because we are human. But with the strength and comfort by the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, we can be guided and strengthen by our Lord to really establish the foundation of faith because God is the TRUE love in faith and there none like his love. This is the truth we know because we, as practicing Christians, have a personal relationship with him.
    God bless you!

  2. I’m praying GOD forgives them. It could be they do not know what they are doing. Many will tell you they know what they are doing. Many will tell you they are Christians, many will tell you even God has blessed them and approves of their union. Despite your praying for them because you care about them, many will want you not to tell them what they Bible, clearly says about what they are involved in.
    Loving them is good, showing compassion also, and so is telling the truth, especially for those who say they are Christians.
