I believe we have an obligation to protect life, I believe we have a responsibility to speak for those without a voice and I also believe we don’t have a right to unjustly discriminate. But lately, in spite of these beliefs, I have had a hard time coming to terms with the way we take such vocal positions when Lions are killed or people are prevented from marrying the person of their choice but say nothing when comparatively greater evils exercise their existence.
“Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.” (NLT)
A few weeks ago, I read an article about how a Christian adoption agency was getting some bad press due to their policies on who can adopt and who cannot when using them in the placement process. The crux of the matter was that as they are a Christian agency and subscribe to Biblical truths, they were prevented from placing Children into homosexual families.
This is a hot topic! Should homosexuals be allowed to adopt, should children without a family be denied of a future because their parent’s sexual orientation is seen as sin? I’m wanting discussion, I’m hoping for comments. Its not about my opinion really, what is most important here is, that there are millions of children worldwide without families, and should we as believers in Jesus Christ, be allowed to prevent those children from having families who’s sexual preferences are biblically wrong, when we the “righteous ones” are not stepping up and saying I’ll adopt you instead?
