To the editor:
Leonard Pitts, in his March 17 J-W article, concludes that “Gay is not a choice, gay is not a sin, gay is not a shame. Gay simply is.” These statements are not true. In fact, they are only Leonard’s opinion.
The Apostle Paul says the truth in I Corinthians 6:9-11(ESV): “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God .”
Note the part that says, “And such were some of you.” Past tense. This is what Jesus can do. All of us can fit into one of these sinful situations. All of us have a choice to which path of life we will take. Which one will you take? I urge your readers to trust in the only person who can bring life now and in eternity. Be washed, sanctified and justified. Experience the abundant life Jesus promised (John 10:10).
