Jesus loves all people, but He does not love all behaviors. Jesus loves all people, but He does not love all ideas. Jesus loves all people, but He does not love all political agendas.
When the woman caught in adultery was thrown at the feet of Jesus in John 8:11, His love for her told her to “go and sin no more.” He knew that adultery was not only a sin against God, but it would destroy her, her family, and her community. So He loved her enough to tell her to stop.
Recently, Robert John Ludwig, a 50-year-old former Navy veteran, obtained a sex change and joined the girls basketball team at Santa Clara Community College. This 6’8″ transgendered man now sits naked in the girls locker room as “one of the girls”.
Does Jesus love Robert? Absolutely. Does he love Roberts behavior? Absolutely not. Does Jesus love the political agenda behind Roberts behavior? Not a chance.
It’s tough for Robert to experience the true love of the Father when a nation not only accepts but appreciates his twisted behavior. This is a tragedy, and I grow more weary every day with the harsh reality that darkness rules the day when Light is hidden under a bushel (a comfortable bushel called the American church).
Robert, I’ve dropped my stone. I ask you to look to Jesus now for the power to be the man God created to be. His love for you is great.
