A bit ironic..

After writing an article on New York legalizing gay marriage, something struck me as being a bit ironic. The symbol of gay pride is a rainbow. God gave us the rainbow, as a reminder of his covenant with the Earth, that never again will he destroy the Earth by sending a great flood.

Now, here is the part that strikes me as being so ironic that it's virtual insanity.. Why did God send the flood on the Earth in the first place? Man had become so evil, sinful, and was a plague on creation (sounds familiar doesn't it?) God decided that since man had gotten so far away from what he had intended, that he was going to wipe the slate clean, and start all over.

Now, that certain elements of our society are rebelling against God, what have they chosen as their "in His face" symbol? A rainbow. The reminder (rainbow) of the covenant (he will not flood the Earth again) that God made with us, after he  destroyed the Earth due to the sinfulness of mankind, is now their "calling card." Wow!

 I just felt the need to share that revelation with you, it really struck me as being quite asinine that anyone would do something that obviously spiteful, directed at the God of the universe. 

  This is a call to everyone to share the Gospel with the lost. They are not to be deplored or avoided. We are all sinners in need of a Savior, just as God has extended us grace, we are to extend them grace. How will they ever know of God and His Word if we do not share it with them?
   Also, keep in mind that as we live our lives from a Biblical Worldview, God does not give us permission to hate those who are in rebellion. We must teach them, communicating the truth in love.

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another."
(Joh 13:34-35 ESV)
