There is a lie that needs to be confronted in love. It’s that I can’t help how I feel. With Holy Spirit’s help, you can change how you feel.
I CAN change how I feel.
Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people—none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God. Some of you were once like that. But you were cleansed; you were made holy; you were made right with God by calling on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11
The city I lived in banned Conversation Therapy. My country is in the process of making it criminal. The city didn’t define what Conversion Therapy was, but insisted no one be forced to give up how they identify.
I’m in agreement that no one should be forced to change lawful behaviour. We have laws against kidnapping and assault and forceable confinement for good reason.
But that won’t stop me from helping anyone from being released from what the Bible calls sin.
I won’t force anyone, but I’m willing to help everyone.
The response to my comment about the lie
But you should have seen the response to my response to the news story for the city’s move.
I wrote, “Guess I'll be violating a bylaw….hmm… 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 has always been a message of hope.”
I didn’t read the article (mea culpa) and didn’t realize people are still allowed to ask for help.
Do you think that stopped the “discussion” against what I wrote or the Bible verse?
My heart for those believing any lie
I’ve had too many discussions with people who think they “can’t help how they feel”.
I’m not just thinking of those self-identifying in the way the Bible calls sin.
- I hear it from husbands who think they’ve fallen out of love with their wife.
- I hear it from Christians who think they can’t give up being negative.
- I hear it from anyone looking to excuse any behaviour they deep down don’t want to change.
