Christ is the only hope for "family values"

A recent news article highlighted Sen. John McCain's campaign stop at a New Hampshire high school. The article said that McCain was booed when he said that he would work to fight against discrimination against gays, but supported traditional marriage.

We really live in a different world than the one that I grew up in. I can remember someone at my high school who was in the music program writing on an anonymous note, saying that he was considering suicide because he was gay.

We certainly should not want anyone to commit suicide because of any sin. All sin can be forgiven, and God wants all to come to him. Today, however, we live in a world where homosexuality is accepted as a normal lifestyle, and where upholding traditional marriage is booed.

The solution to this is not laws. No law can change any heart. And the support for homosexuality is so strong amongst young people that it will only be a matter of time before this lifestyle is accepted--and not even questioned--by the majority of Americans. I hate to see this, but it is coming.

Only Christ can change hearts. If we are really serious about "family values," we will put our time and energy into reaching the lost, rather than Supreme Court justices. This includes loving those who are engaged in a homosexual lifestyle, spending time with them, serving them, and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with them. Paul said about homosexuals, adulters, and many others, "Such were some of you. But you have been washed . . . " This is something which no law can do.
