LET'S TRY AGAIN

*

Here's one that eidtor Rieckman might not censor:

Dear Editor,

Kevin McGee rebuked Richard Ives for his support of the one man/one woman marriage bill. McGee used the same old arguments that we should “judge not”, “cast (not) the first stone”, and leave the judgment up to God and treat homosexuals with “charity, mercy and compassion”.

Does that argument really hold water? What if we replace homosexuals in his letter with other people the Bible considers immoral?

Should we “judge not” adulterers, polygamists, and pornographers?

Rapists, and those who commit bestiality, are judged as criminals and incarcerated. Should we treat them with “charity, mercy and compassion” and let them free?

Should we not “cast the first stone” at child molesters or spouse beaters? Should we leave the judgment up to God and leave such people alone?

McGee’s argument obviously is ridiculous. If something is immoral, it should be judged and rebuked. When homosexuality rears up, it should be dealt with. But, that cannot happen unless the homosexuals flaunt their behavior publicly and demand others accept their behavior. However, that’s not even what this bill does. It simply defines marriage as between one man and one woman - as it always has been. It does not criminalize homosexuality.

The context of the passages McGee referred to is hypocritical judgment. We should not pass a judgment on others we wouldn’t pass on ourselves. If we commit crimes, we should be judged.

McGee also said that he and Ives are “different types of Christians”. The only type of Christian in the Bible is one who receives the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour by believing He died on the cross, and rose again, to take away our sin debt.
