The onslaught upon us to embrace the LGBT+ agenda as the new norm for our society continues apace during lockdown. And the BBC seems very much in the vanguard of this as one of the agencies leading the assault upon our hearts and minds.
Some recent examples on the BBC website are here:
- Here we have the Richardson-Walsh’s settling down to parenthood.
- Here we have the continued suffering of LGBT+ people during lockdown. It is interesting in this article that there is just the one-sided presented of the parent-child conflict. No mention is made of what the parent might have gone through.
Should we be bothered by this? Should I as a Christian just say “c’est la vie, live-and-let-live”? I think there is a key “love your neighbour” principle here.
I want to be aware of sensitive to the struggles some people have with gender dysphoria and same sex attraction which are real and we should have great compassion for. However, the fact remains that human beings thrive when they conform to God’s order. Genesis 1 establishes that we are designed to be male and female. Genesis 2 establishes that we are designed to be married as male and female to the exclusion of all others for life.
In the Old Testament Sodom is the epitome of a wrecked society and it is characterised by homosexual licentious acts. As also is the degenerate society present in the New Testament in Romans 1:21-32. It never ends well for a society that celebrates LGBT+ pursuits. We should mourn when we observe the BBC propaganda.
But what is our response? It is NOT to pursue moral rectification and see all with homosexual and transgender activity eradicated so as to introduce a brave pure world. No, no, no. It is the gospel that is our response. The embrace of LGBT+ ideology reveals a society in breakdown, the bringing of the gospel into that society indicates a church which is wise and can bring hope. Cleaned up sinners are still sinners; let us never forget that. The gospel is the only message which is the power of God to salvation.
Oh let us rise to the challenge today and declare repentance toward God and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. Pharisaical lectures and pompous do-gooding are not the answer. The gospel is.
