I got shit to do
Apparently my body physically cannot be asleep longer than 6 hours anymore. Which is cool cause I don’t need to be sleeping 14 hours a night.
But I wake up at 4 am so by the time 2 pm rolls around, I’m dead fucking tired and having uncontrollable yawning fits…
First, if Jesus wanted to make it known that gay or transgender people are wrong He would have just said it. The hype about all of this being wrong is from people who twist and distort the actual message God wants people to get and that is to be a good person. That is it.
Every motivation, every act, every thought that crosses our minds God sees and interprets. We can agree on that, right?
The Bible says-
Samuel 16:7 But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
The Lord looks at the heart, which is sometimes beyond what other humans can see.
Every person who holds up a sign saying things like, “God hates fags” or “All gays are going to burn in hell”, God sees what motivates those people, what truly motivations those people and it is not out of love and compassion or kindness. It is out of hate and ignorance.
When God sees a gay person trying to get married or raise a family God sees what motivates those people to do that. It isn’t out of spiting God. It isn’t out of wanting to hurt anyone. It is out of love. Even if you say, “Well, that’s not real love”, how can you tell? How do you know? God knows and that is for God to decide. But right here and right now we have to treat all people as Jesus would treat them and that is with love, respect and kindness. That message is so much over looked and mudded with hate. It is one thing to say, “Oh, I love the sinner but I hate the sin”. Really? Where does statements like that really come from? It sure does not come from empathy, true empathy, for another person’s struggle.
I am transgender so I can speak from experience that not for one second have I chosen anything that I have done to hurt God, quite the opposite. There have been sleepless nights where I have prayed to God to make me not feel this way. After months of unanswered prayers I was either going to end my life, thinking it was better to be dead than “wrong” in the eyes of God, or I was going to attempt to live my life the way I had been struggling against. It wasn’t until I started to live my life the way I was fighting in my heart that I became even closer to God. God does not want His children to end their lives or live in pain. I would never want to believe in a God that would be more honored to have me dead than to simply live the way I need to live. God is mercy, love and empathy beyond any of our human conceptions.
So when you say why should they have rights you are asking why should human beings be protected and treated fairly. I know my God would treat all people and views all His children the same.
This was beautiful.
