Recently, Miley tweeted a picture of a freshly inked = sign on her finger. No it’s not because she is a big fan of mathematics, the new body art was in support of gay marriage. She wrote “where does it say in the bible to judge others? Oh right. It doesn’t. GOD is the only judge honey. GOD is love.” This is very true, the Bible tells us not to judge others because that judgment will eventually come upon us, and God is in fact, love in the purest form.
Being a Christian who consistently prays for Hollywood and all its inhabitants, it makes me happy to hear a big time influence preaching with good intention. However, her message is skewed when she said “all love is equal.” According to His word, God would not say that. God is love, yes, but he is also the judge, the one who will bang the gavel. The judges in the courtrooms of today’s society don’t anxiously await opportunities to send people to prison but if you break the law, that’s where you end up. We seem to conveniently forget who we’re dealing with, who we’re answering to. The same guy that saved Noah and his family killed the rest of the people who were not on the boat; God spared Lot and his loved ones, what happened to the others in the town? Burnt to a crisp, oh, and the one who looked back…became a pillar of salt. “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom” (Prov. 9:10) and his wrath is no joke people…he’s a serious guy and as much as he loves us (so much so he watched his own beloved child get mocked, spit on, scourged, beaten, and crucified just to give us a shot) he has, and always will, stick to scripture. So, as my view on gay marriage is lined up with God’s this isn’t something worth supporting. Marriage is between a man and a woman, period. This does not mean we judge others who are attracted to the same sex. Being gay is the same as lust, greed, or any other sin, but for some reason it seems like this one gets special attention. Hate the sin NOT the sinner, confusing this for plain hatred makes us no better than the sin itself-harsh but true.
What does one do is a situation like this; where a family member, friend, or co-worker is struggling with their view on orientation. Advice should be lined up with what scripture says, speak the truth. That is what Miley, being a child of God is responsible for, instead she’s advocating the wrong message. Her tattoo should stand for “love all equally” not “all love is equal.”
