by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – Trying to Justify Christians Watching ‘This Is Us”
Editor’s note: This week’s theme for Lori seems to be sinful movies and television shows. She apparently approves of watching shows with dramatic depictions of murders and other ‘sins’ but not watching a show named ‘This Is Us’. I admit I haven’t seen this show so I cannot make a judgment call on if it’s sinful or not, but for goodness sakes it’s just a fictional television show. If you don’t like it, don’t watch it and don’t beat up on your readers that said they liked it. No one is forcing you to participate in watching the show! Personal tastes vary wildly. I had to share this little bit by Lori because it is the most typical reaction to homosexuality in Evangelical circles. Shaming and blaming while claiming to love.
Does anyone here watch this show that Lori is ranting about? Now I’m going to have to go take a peek and see what her fuss is about.
Again, this all sounds great but it isn’t biblical. Yes, we are to love the homosexuals in our life but we shouldn’t be entertained by it or do anything to help promote it by watching it on TV shows. God destroyed two cities because of homosexuality. Be kind and loving to the homosexuals in our lives but lead them to Jesus. They need Jesus. We can’t lead some character on a TV show to Jesus. The main purpose of having a homosexual on a TV show is to normalize the sin Christ died for. God told Lot if there were ten righteous people in Sodom and Gomorrah, He would have spared them but there were not. Even Lot was “vexed (tormented) with the filthy behavior of the wicked. (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)” (2 Peter 2:7, 8). We are called to FLEE all sexual immorality, not be entertained by it or normalize it. It’s a deadly lifestyle. Jesus loved but then told the adulterous woman at the well to “Go and sin no more.” We are commanded to speak the truth in love. We must never leave out the truth part as so many today want to do.
Dear Lori, you can catch many more flies with honey than vinegar. I tend to think that those folks that bring others meals when they are sick, treat them with respect and kindness and like genuine human beings without once heaping them with shame and condemnation in an attempt to issue a ‘Come to Jesus’ are much more effective at leading people to Jesus. They are doing the things Jesus said his followers would do.
