Happy easter. The best day to cover everything in sparkles!
Today is Easter the most important day in the Christian calendar, a day to remember that Jesus is God.
There is however something I want to talk about. It's something that's been all over the intertubes for weeks... it's what's happened in Indiana where discrimination on the grounds of sexuality is now a completely acceptable thing due to supposed religious freedom.
I want to remind people that Jesus said "let he who is without sin, cast the first stone". I want to remind people that the bible says "For everyone has sinned and fallen short of the glory of God" I want to remind people that "The wages of sin is death" and that "Jesus did not come into the world to condemn it, but to save it"
Finally I want to remind people of the parable of the servant. I will paraphrase because you've probably all heard it. However Jesus tells a story of a head servant who owes a lot of money to his master. When his master asks for it back, he breaks down and tells his master he cannot afford it, he has a family to feed etc etc. His master takes pity and lets him off the debt. The servant then goes out and finds one of the lower servants who owes him a small amount of money, and beats him for not paying up.
This is exactly what is happening in Indiana. Yes hypocrisy is hardly something new and people have been using God's name to justify their own ends for centuries. This thing however is sickening me... It is not following God's law, I can literally pull a thousand bible verses that speak of Love and looking after your neighbour. I just hate that people think they are being God Christians by pointing at someone who dares to follow their heart into a same sex relationship and deems them as less than they are.
Jesus, God, the saviour of the world who could destroy us in the blink of an eye, washed people's feet, served wine for them and in the end was tortured and died for us... yet we can't make a pizza for someone because they're gay?!
Oh and happy easter
