Sour Milk

penn1This morning while I was watching the news I had to endure what the winners from the Oscar’s had to say. While I am a movie buff, I do not like the rhetoric and agenda that Hollywood seems to promote unashamedly. As I was watching I had to listen to Sean Penn who won an award for the movie MILK. This movie (which I have not or will not watch) is based on Harvey Milk and his fight for equal rights for homosexuals. Penn stated that this was really about “equal rights” which is what he said when he won the Golden Globe for the same part earlier this year.

The issue of homosexuality is becoming an increasing issue in our culture. Now people are saying that this is a civil rights issue. This is becoming such a big issue that it is influencing those who are in the Church and Christians are beginning to sit on the fence. This is not a civil rights issue! This is a problem and those of us in the Church need to take the stand that scripture does. In Romans 1:18-32 & 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 God tells us that homosexuality is wrong. He tells us that this lifestyle is sinful and unnatural. This is what we must teach and preach since it is a part of God’s Will.

I will say that when witnessing to a homosexual or discussing the matter with them we should always do so in love and grace. With that said I do not think that the Church should back down one bit from what we believe is the absolute truth of God’s ordained plan for His Creation. Hollywood is leading a charge that will impact our culture in negative ways for years to come. Those of us who are in Christ must defend the faith and we need to realize that we have the same right to discuss this issue as those who are trying to promote something that is against God’s design. God blesses those who stand up for the truth.
