More Abundantly Living

I saw this on Facebook the other evening: Don’t like gay marriages? Don’t get one…Don’t like cigarettes? Don’t smoke them…Don’t like abortions? Don’t get one…Don’t like sex? Don’t have it…Don’t like drugs? Don’t do them…Don’t like porn? Don’t watch it…Don’t like alcohol? Don’t drink it.. Don’t like guns? Don’t buy one..Don’t like your rights taken away? Don’t take away someone else’s! {re-post if you agree}.
Needless to say, I did not repost.
What I see is someone saying I infringe on someone else’s rights when I am against gay marriage, smoking, abortion, adultery, fornication, drugs, porn, or drinking.
What I see is someone infringing on my right to preach or teach against that which I believe the Bible speaks against.
Shall I go down the list?
Lev 20:13-If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death.
1 Cor 6:19-do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?
Ex 20:13-You shall not murder.
Eph 5:18-do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit,
Ex 20:14-You shall not commit adultery.
Eph 5:3-But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints;
If I preach against sin as indicated by the Word, then am I not trying to get others to realize that to sin is to die.
There is a better way than gay marriage.
There is a better way than smoking, or abortion, sexual sins, drugs, or drinking.
That better way is Jesus and if you can show me where Jesus’ way is a way of gay marriage, smoking drinking, adultery, drugs, or porn, then I will retract.
But Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” John 10:10
Believe me, those other things aren’t it.
