I guess we, who write on WordPress, all saw this post link to our WordPress site on the first of June. At first I just Ignored it. Then I prayed, Lord you died for these people, but they don’t get it. Then I thought I need to respond.
Jesus died for sinners not for the righteous. Why didn’t He die for the right e o us? Could stand for – RIGHT E(enough) O(on) US crowd. Gay Pride, what is that?
I’ll be the first to admit that I was also as they are guilty of sexual sin as a man in a world where sin abounds, but Pride? I never found pride in my sin. I still don’t if on occasion I should fall, but instead I cringe and go into my private closet, and I express my sorrow to the One who gave Himself that I would not need to be a slave to my sin. Yes it’s mine — I alone own it, and I have no pride concerning it. It nailed my Lord to a cruel cross, and I despise it. For it represents my part in my Lords death. Pride for it, I do not have. And I suggest to you that if you are proud of your sin no matter what it is; then Jesus did not die for you. Don’t fool yourself.
13 But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire compassion, and not sacrifice,’ for I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” Matthew 9:13 NASB
So is what I have written here compassionate? If you believed that “Pride” goeth before a fall; then you would think it compassionate. If you believed that Jesus meant that those who see themselves as righteous do not need a savior; then you would believe it compassionate. If you knew that on Judgment day Jesus will look at many who believe themselves to be righteous before Him, and say: “depart from me for I never knew you”; then you would think it compassionate.
You see as long as you are proud of your sin, you cannot see your sin for what it really is. It is the great separation or separator. The great gulf that separates you from a loving God, who came to earth as Jesus the Christ, and died for your sins. Seek Him today while He May be found.
