POINTING FINGERS AND THROWING STONES
I saw this posted on Facebook by a friend, the friend was only sharing the photo not suggesting any sort of pro or con of gay marriage or divorce. Most likely this sign was created by somebody maybe angry at the hypocrisy of the whole marriage concept between gay and straight. I’m not going to get too much into gay marriage or marriage in general but the fact is we have two wrongs pointing fingers at each other both trying to hide their hypocrisy.
Now sin is sin and in the end all sin equals death while I do think some sin is much more devastating than others one must acknowledge that wrong is wrong and one sin does not justify another. Jesus spoke of a few sins that he felt were used the most, these sins when used seem to catch a person and put them in a hold of multiple offences that are very hard to break like hypocrisy, greed, pride (mainly spiritual pride) and unbelief
As the sign in the picture sarcastically suggest; the attack of gay marriage on the sanctity of the family and marriage is a major threat in these times but what about divorce and does the God say about divorce. Malachi 2:16 “The man who hates and divorces his wife,” says the Lord, the God of Israel, “does violence to the one he should protect,”[e] says the Lord Almighty. So be on your guard, and do not be unfaithful. To put it bluntly God does not condone divorce. In few cases does God allow divorce but the idea of having multiple marriages is better than the defiling the sacred act of marriage between a man and a woman this folks is called hypocrisy.
If you read in your New Testament John chapter 8 verses 1-11 when Jesus deals with a woman that has been caught in adultery and teachers of the law you will see disillusion from one sin to another. Jesus does not condone one sin from another but simply forgives us and asks us to go and sin no more. Where does this fit in divorce and gay marriage you might ask. Biblically speaking divorce, the idea that let up to and the idea that leads past divorce is sin. The act of homosexuality is biblically sin it follows a whole host of sins if acted upon.
This sign in the photo tries to depict just one act of hypocrisy by the heterasexual lifestyle but in reality it’s more. It depicts the destruction of marriage, hypocrisy, greed, prostitution, debauchery, adultery, not to mention how it deviates the natural law of God. The real tale of this sign is two sins ought not to point fingers at each other. Neither wrong doer should throw the first stone but should put down their stones and sin no more. Moreover if this sign does exist I only say that because photoshopping is easy to do now days I am very sad for this church. Not only is this church dividing or society but it is walking on the fence of morality and teaching a false Gospel a church like this is just as guilty as what the sign is poking fun of.
