Since it’s coming across my facebook feed again, I am finally going to address the issue of the Bakers that are having their lives destroyed by the ‘tolerant’ left.¬† Why? for chosing not to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex wedding.
The narrative being passed around facebook goes something like this:¬† ~Jesus ate with sinners..( of whatever type they choose to name) but you won’t bake them a cake? ~
There are several problems with this… we’ll go over the high points.
First, in most cases that I am aware of, the bakers involved have no problem selling their wares to the people involved. so it’s not about ‘baking a cake’.¬† Taking a half truth and using it to string along the storyline you want people to believe is a poor substitute for reasoned argument.
When Jesus ‘ate with sinners’ he wasn’t condoning their life choices, He was showing them the way out.¬† A same-sex wedding isn’t a way out, it is saying you’re going to stay in this lifestyle for the long haul. Something that many Christians have a hard time putting their seal of approval on.¬† Thusly, they get hammered down.
Is that sinful life choice worse than mine?¬† hardly. After all, I was a witch.¬† Something that¬†has been forgiven by our Lord since I turned to Jesus.
To those who say that the bakers in question are being hateful, I must disagree.¬† To my mind, the most hateful thing that they could do is put their stamp of approval on the wedding, leading the homosexual community to think that it’s okay in God’s view.¬† Bake for them, sure. Love them as people, absolutely.¬† Make the centerpiece for that wedding celebration ?¬† I don’t find that to be very loving at all….
