Yesterday I found out that one of my favorite Christian singer is gay. I never knew this and I found out that she's been in a same-sex relationship for 8 years now. I heard a few tsk tsks and heads nodding in disapproval at this. I mean, come on she's christian and gay?! How could that be?! How can she be gay and sing about God?! These are thoughts that go through most non- judgemental Christian minds when they hear something like this(Excuse my sarcasm).
If I am not wrong, aren't all sins the same? There is no big sin small sin, right?If I am wrong, correct me please. Some of the sins that pop to my mind according to the Word of God is evil doing, adultery, idolatry, slandering, gossip, evil thoughts, homosexuality, fornication, cowardness, blasphemy, etc. So why do people gasp in horror when a Christian is gay or having pre-marital physical relationships?Why are those people judged more than the others? I mean people don't talk too much of the statues of the Blessed Jewish woman Mariam who was the Earthly mother of the Christ that occupy the churches of today or all the statues of the Saints of God when that is clearly idolatry(when most of them probably fought to abolish idolatry and polytheism) and most of us(I speak for myself) are guilty of lying, gossip, evil thoughts etc. So why is that somehow less sinful? Why doesn't that make headlines? Why don't I see Christianitytoday or other Christian sites or magazines say "A Christian found gossiping!". I know many say they don't judge but who are we to fool ourselves? I know I have judged in the past but God showed me like the others, I am human and I fall at times and sometimes more often than that and when I do, I don't want someone judging me so I think or like to think that I am maybe less judgemental now or maybe I am trying to be less judgemental.
So to my Christian brothers and sisters, I sincerely and genuinely ask this question because I do not know and like many of you I am not as well read and not as authoritive of the Scriptures. If you feel my article is stupid and I am bringing up an absurd matter, please rebuke me in love :)
