On My Mind Today

Here is what is on my mind:  I am just wondering why it is when someone is born disfigured, with a disease, with mental handicaps, etc. or when someone has an accident and becomes disfigured, gets a disease, or becomes handicapped, etc. that we can look at them and tell them that everything will be alright.  We live in a fallen world but don’t worry because God doesn’t make mistakes and He has a plan.  He loves you and love is the most important thing.  So all we have to do is love them and let them know God is with them.  BUT when it comes to transgender, homosexuals, transvestites, etc. it is not about God has a plan and is with you and loves you.  No, it is about how much of a sinner they are or how disgusting their acts are or how God is displeased with them for those sins.  Am I missing something?  Are we all not sinners?  Do we all not fall short of His glory?  Did He not send Jesus to die for ALL of us?  Is love not the greatest commandment? 

Jesus replied, “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind; This is the first and greatest commandment.  A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’  Matthew 22:36-39

Hmm, we sure do miss that second one a lot.  How can we tell the first group that God has a plan and loves them but not the second?  “They are choosing to do this to their selves,” you say.  Well I ask you, “Do you have some magical gift that allows you to be inside another person and feel what they are feeling?  To feel their struggles and their turmoil.  To be one way, or at least the way the word is telling you to be, but to know you are to be something else?”  How can you tell me that their struggles and their coming out is not part of God’s plan? 

You say well God doesn’t make mistakes and I say you are right.  But then you say well then because He doesn’t make mistakes, “If they are a boy they should stay a boy or date a girl, etc.”  Well I counter to you, what if it isn’t a mistake but instead a lesson for us, all part of God’s plan for all of us to learn something?  Could it be a chance for us to take someone who might be considered different in our world view and to just show them nothing but love?  That is all God is asking us to with his commandment.  He does not say judge one another, spew hateful words to one another, or make them feel like they are less a Christian than we are because the world view says they are different. No instead He tells us to love one another as we love Him. There is no condition with God’s love and there shouldn’t be with ours either. 

People say they have a choice to be gay, a transgender, a transvestite, etc. but I say society has a choice to be accepting or to hate.  Society has a choice to have their arms wide open to embrace or be closed minded to turn away.  Society has a choice to love and only love with no constraints, no boundaries, and without judgment.  We have the power through God to make this world a place of love, compassion, and happiness but we choose everyday not to and that is on us and we all will have to answer for that one day.
