As a Christian, and based on GOD’s truths in the Bible, I do not agree with the gay lifestyle. So, this entry is a difference of opinion to what transpired on-stage last Sunday night at The Grammy Awards. If you want to pull out the gay bashing card, please put it back in the stack. It is not feasible here.
Accompanied by Madonna, Mary Lambert and Queen Latifa, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis sang, as the Huffington-Puffington Post called it, their “marriage equality anthem” entitled “Same Love.” The lyric that caught my attention most was: “Whatever god you believe in/We come from the same one.”
The problem is, “Same Love” is not GOD’s Love.
“Same Love” is a worldly view that has no boundaries or safe-guards. Essentially, the buffet table is open. Whether it is a gay relationship, heterosexual couple just “moving in” with each other, or casual sex with whomever, these “alternative lifestyles” are born from one product, sin.
To explain what I mean, and show I’m not ostracizing certain groups, let’s go in the “way-back machine” to where it all started.
The Garden of Eden was perfect and its population consisted of one dude, Adam, and one chick, Eve. No other couples of any kind were created along with them. They lived freely within GOD’s protective boundaries. So free, they were buck-naked as j-birds and no apprehension existed among them.
The one rule – “you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.”
As soon as Adam and Eve tasted that forbidden fruit, they got “knowledge.” They became “smart.” Sin had made its debut. Instantly, Adam and Eve noticed some very interesting things about each other. They were embarrassed and raced to clothe themselves. They tried to hide from GOD. (Jonah attempted to do the same thing and that didn’t work out either.)
Except for JESUS CHRIST, everyone has sinned. It steals our freedom. It shackles us down. It puts us on the run and skews our vision. It tries to convince us the corner piece of the puzzle will fit in the middle. It never has and never will.
Before sin, there was no murder, lies, greed, envy, lust, robbery, debauchery, self-absorption, etc. “Same Love” did not exist. GOD’s Love did – and it included one man and one woman whom HE ordained as perfect fitting pieces (biologically and anatomically).
GOD’s Love is clearly defined, forgiving and eternally securing. It is the “same love” HE offered to us today, yesterday and will tomorrow.
