One of the perpetual mantras of the progressive regressors who hate Natural Marriage, is the constant mention of Ms. Kim Davis’ previous lifestyle before her conversion to Lord Jesus.
Its important to note that the reason why they do so, is not because they have a sincere devotion to moral perfection, but rather, they mischaracterize the woman who represents the Christian determination to rise against those who arduously work to make our values null and void.
In fact, those who point out Kim Davis’ previous immoral lifestyle actually malign the Gay lifestyle that they are trying to sanctify and re-brand as “normal.” A person who purposely tries to quote Scripture in order to highlight some moral flaw while disregarding the other moral commandments in Scripture, only highlights his or her inability to reason.
Oftentimes those who throw the “Do Not Judge” trump card in regards to Homosexuality, are the first ones to pass judgement on Kim Davis, based on her previous lifestyle. Most who quote the mantra: “Do Not Judge” completely ignore the textual context upon which that statement is made. Lets look at the passage found in Matthew 7:1-2 (NKJV)
Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgement you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.
Jesus is not commanding his disciples to “not judge” in the sense of becoming morally blind, but rather, the word “judge” in this context, means simply to pass a verdict based on our limited perception.
When people who expect God’s grace do not extend that same grace to others, they actually pass judgement upon themselves- and cut themselves off from the grace they hope to achieve.
God’s grace is much greater than what any human can imagine. The message of Christianity is that human beings are not bound to the fate of their mistakes. (Romans 6:18) God sent his Son Jesus Christ, so that by absorbing and becoming our sin, we in turn can be released from bondage to sin and be reconciled to the God that created us for his pleasure. (2Cor. 5:21)
Revelation 4:11 KJV- Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
What we were before the Cross, is no longer our reality. And this reality is available for anyone who desires to be reconciled to God and have a new start, based upon the transcendent grace of a God who is love. Think about it… regardless of whatever “bad karma” or “sin” you’ve committed, Christ has removed them from us so that we might be able to turn towards his marvelous light, and be saved.
If you desire to experience true liberation from your past sins, then all you have to do is simply turn to God in the Name of Jesus and by the power that comes from accepting the fact that God loves you more than you love yourself. If you turn from your sinful lifestyle and place your trust upon Jesus’ work on the Cross, the power of the Resurrection will turn you into a new creation.
1 John 2:2 (NIV)- He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.
