A person I know (not very well, but well enough.) and I were discussing the Bible a few weeks ago, mostly focusing on hot topics such as homosexuality, abortion and etc. If you know me at all, you’ll know that I don’t exactly shy away from hot topics. I can debate well enough to get by, and I can calmly discuss things with people even if they don’t agree. If anything, I enjoy the discussions no matter what their views are or how they differ from my own, because it’s important to know the arguments of the world so you can fight them better. Just saying “Because the Bible says so!” isn’t going to win many souls or make people interested in what I have to say – frankly, it’s probably going to make them dislike talking to Christian’s even more than they already do. During our discussion, we delved a bit deeper into this “equality” fad that’s been going on lately. This person doesn’t share my views on homosexual marriage, abortion, yada yada. In short, I’m a complete conservative, and she’s a total liberal. We couldn’t be any more different. She’s also not saved. It was during this discussion that she said something that really made a lightbulb in my head light up. I realized something.
The majority of these liberals who scream out for equality don’t want to be equal with everyone else. They don’t want to be equal with us Christian’s, they want to have power over us, control us, and those of us who don’t turn from God, they want to shun us. These people don’t want equality – they want to be above God, and above His words and His laws. So often, I’m told that I’m shoving my beliefs down people’s throats. I’m being too forward on this blog, I’m being too forward on social media sites, I’m being too forward in my own life. I’m told that by the people who want equality…how ironic is that? These people are demanding equal rights but they do not want equal rights. They want to be able to sin without Christian’s standing up for Jesus Christ and confronting them. They want to live like pigs without God’s conviction. They want to be able to talk filth, mock the Lord God Almighty and sin freely…they want to be able to do whatever they want…because…equal rights? Right?
If they wanted equality, they wouldn’t be trashing Christian’s and making us hide in the corner. If they wanted equality, they wouldn’t ban Bible’s and prayer from schools. If they wanted equality, they wouldn’t want to get rid of God.
They do not want equality. They want to be above. And let’s never forget Lucifer’s sin, the sin that made us all fall.
