I read a story about a man and his wife who entered an opera house and found a man lying across their seats. They asked him to move, and his only response was an inarticulate moaning sound. They summoned an usher who told the man that he had to get up, because he had these people’s seats. The only response was a guttural sound. The usher said, “He’s drunk, so I’ll call the police.” Then the police came and asked the man, “Who are you, and where did you come from?” The man finally managed to say, “I fell out of the balcony.” This is a clear example of judging a situation without having all the facts.
This verse, Matthew 7:1, does not teach that Jesus meant that we cannot pass judgment on anyone at any time (John 7:24). In the context of this verse, Jesus is condemning a fault-finding attitude without having all the facts. One must form an opinion based upon facts and not impute wrong motives on a situation he/she knows little about.
It is not judging to take the Bible and show a person that what they believe and practice is not in agreement with the word of God. It is not judging to emphasize that fornication, adultery, homosexuality, and drunkenness are sinful behaviors and will cause a person to be lost when they die! (Gal. 5:19-22) It is not judging to try to help people out of their sinful practices.
Those who engage in immoral behavior such as homosexuality, pedophilia, transgenderism and lesbianism often quote Matthew 7:1 when attempting to defend their sinful behavior. The LGTBQ detractors would tell you that the reason that Christians do not celebrate gay pride month in June is because they are bigots, homophobic, and transphobic.
My question is, why shouldn’t everyone celebrate gay pride week supported by LGTBQ? If I’m convinced that homosexual practices are contrary to God’s design, why should I celebrate it?
The big question in our society right now concerning the foolishness about genders is the idea posed by those on the political left that there is a distinction between gender and sex. The fact is there is a difference between sex and gender. The term, sex, refers to the biological and physical differences between a man and woman. The term, gender, refers to their characteristics, behaviors, and role expectations. The idea that a person might be a man trapped in a woman’s body or vice-versa is not supported by any scientific evidence.
Dr. McHugh, a former psychiatrist at John Hopkins, has revealed the truth about the transgender myth that has the left using LGTBQ to destroy the family. Dr. McHugh said, “It’s biologically false that one can change his/her sex. The truth of the matter is a transgender man does not become a woman nor does a transgender woman become a man. All that have changed have become feminized men or masculinized women, which are counterfeits or impersonators of the sex with which they identify.”
Dr. McHugh was the psychiatrist-in-chief at John Hopkins Hospital for 26 years and pioneered sex-change surgery and later ceased this practice. He stressed the idea that one’s sex is not fluid and a matter of choice.
I will not celebrate LGBTQ pride because there is an agenda attached to it. The legitimizing of homosexuality as a normal alternative to heterosexuality requires that all opposition to homosexual behavior must be delegitimized. This requires that homosexuality, which is a gender dysphoria and mental disorder, be looked upon as normal.
The bottom line is about creating new categories of sin and pushing them down the throats of society. God’s condemnation throughout the Bible is pointed directly at those of either sex who try to break down the sexual differences which exist between a man and woman (Deut. 22:5).
We are to love them, but love does not mean we must tolerate error.
