I’m fairly certain that I just read the most ridiculous argument as to why “Christians should support gay marriage.”
Are you ready for this?
Because we “real Christians” should support anything that “invites God’s judgment” on the world so we can go ahead and “inherit the Kingdom.” The blogger ended with a challenge to God to “bring it – if you’re real that is.”
First, as one of the “real Christians,” I am not afraid of death because it is not the end. However, for those who don’t know Christ and haven’t committed themselves to Him, death is game over. There will be no “oh man, you really are real! OK – now that I’m standing before the throne, I see that I was wrong so now, I want to give my life to you” moments AFTER death. I personally don’t want to see anyone separated from God for eternity so time is a good thing in my book.
Next is the whole “what I appear to approve of” factor. While Romans 14:22 is specifically referring to food, I believe that it goes deeper than just what I eat. As a follower of Christ, my life is supposed to reflect Him. If I approve of or support things that the Bible says are not good, then I’m condemning myself. Being politically correct may have the world patting me on the back for being so “open-minded,” but it won’t necessarily have God thinking, “Well done my good and faithful servant.”
Finally, challenging God to do something you want “if He’s real” is never a good idea. Daring God to do something or demanding He dance to your tune is like the clay arguing with the potter. “Prove you’re real by doing what I want” is putting yourself above God. The saddest part of that one for me is that if God were to “answer the challenge” and bring judgment upon this young man, his “answer” of “oh yeah – God is real” wouldn’t end well for him. He would have his answer, but it would be too late for him to do anything with it.
