I read a lot of blogs. It's part of being a member of the blogosphere. In my journeys across blogland, I do what I call "blog hopping." I have a certain circle of blogs that I read regularly, and, when I have time, I'll jump to a blog from a post on another blog. Basically, I can be six or seven blogs removed from my original starting point. It's a great way to find interesting blogs and post on other blogs in hopes to lure my own blog hoppers back to my world.
The other day I was blog hopping and came across an entry I just haven't been able to forget. I'll keep this as anonymous as possible so as to protect the unknown individual. This guy is evidently openly homosexual and had received a Christian email from a college friend. I don't consider myself very naive, but I will say this post has haunted me. His comments about his feelings on Christians was probably the strongest I've ever read. It's as though the enemy himself was writing this entry.
I believe the Bible is the true, infallible, inerrant Word of God. Let the world throw their arrows. I believe homosexuality is a sin - and no different than any other sin I commit - one is as bad as another. But, I do know one thing - my heart hurts for this person. He doesn't see the truth, wouldn't even listen if I tried, which grieves me. I care about his soul, even if he doesn't.
If you think America is a God-fearing nation full of folks who love God, salute the flag, and support our troops, try blog hopping for a while. It may open your eyes.
