To the editor:
“Repealer keeps anti-gay law on books” read the Jan. 20 front page Journal-World headline. Bottom line of the article is that the gay community and those who support the community are very angry at Gov. Brownback for not adding this law to his list of 51 state measures to repeal. They even cite the fact that the Supreme Court has a different position from Kansas law.
The reality of this is that God has an anti-gay law, an anti-stealing law, an anti-murder law, etc. It really doesn’t make any difference who approves or disapproves the anti-gay law. God almighty has decreed that the gay lifestyle is sinful, like all the sins listed on his sin lists.
The good news is that God has also provided a way to be redeemed from this and any other sin (except the unforgivable sin) by God’s saving grace accessible only through belief in the sanctifying work of Jesus Christ. We all sin and fall short of God’s glory, but God gave His only begotten son as a payment for our sins, a debt we couldn’t pay.
If you want to see a list of consequences related to the gay lifestyle, read Romans 1:28 to 32. Don’t stop there, read John 3:16 (Tim Tebow’s trademark verse) and Romans 6:12-23 to get a statement and summary of the good news of Jesus Christ.
