After reading Carlton Fletcher's article on June 3 regarding those who cast stones, I felt I had to respond as a follower of Christ. Mr. Fletcher, you left out a very important part. Jesus said, "Neither do I condemn you, go now and leave your life of sin" NIV (John 8:11).
I am one of the all in Romans 3:23 that says, "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." It is through the grace of God and His Son Jesus Christ that we find redemption for our sins.
We have gone from taking prayer out of schools, abortions on demand and now our leaders support same-sex marriage. While I think we should treat everyone with love and respect, we should not condone behavior that is contrary to the Word of God.
As a proud American, I pray our nation will once again believe in the God that created each of us. I am thankful for the freedom of religion and speech that we enjoy. We as Christians need to be a voice in this world again.
I would like to leave you with two verses from God's word that I hope will be printed.
Romans 1:26-27: "Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned the natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion" (NIV), and Isaiah 5:20, "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil." (NIV )
God have mercy on America!
