It Is Best For The Children ?
 

For those of us who are followers of Jesus Christ, who have come to believe the Bible when it states that "all scripture is inspired by God", and, who believe our Lord Jesus and everything He stated and told us to do. We believe Him when He tells us we must "Love our God with all our hearts and minds and strength, AND, we are to love our neighbors as ourselves." Friends, the Bible goes on to encourage each of us to "love the sinner but hate the sin". As Christians we are NEVER to look down upon, or scorn, or belittle anyone at any level or stage of life. God instituted and created ALL life, NOT MAN OR WOMAN. So then, even though we as believers in Christ know that God is offended by ALL sin and sinful lifestyles and that it grieves Him endlessly, we also know that we are charged with loving those caught in sinfull lifestyles and helping them to repent and recieve their Lord's forgiveness and blessings.

Yes, from the founding fathers of our great State and great Nation until now, we know that homosexual activity is wrong and offends God.

Now, those who practice this lifestyle are by even their own admission less than 5% of the population. so exactly what is it you would like to do to the adoption laws? Your intention would not be to FORCE the vast majority to bend and violate their beliefs and convictions to accomodate to super small minority would it? Does that make sense?

Do we at all care for the future of the children involved here? Or is this just "all-about me" sceanerio common to selfish and self-centered adults?

May God have mercy on us all if we fail to begin again to stand for His will and His way in this ever darkening world.
