Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power – “Tuesday Mornings…”

Welcome to Coffee Hour and welcome to the new Tuesday Morning series. Actually that’s only half of the title, but I’ll reveal the rest of it at the end of the blog. I can’t say I’m excited about what I’m going to share, but I am definitely passionate about it and would so love to know your thoughts. So, please, grab your coffee and come on in and let’s pick up from where I left off yesterday.

Words cannot even begin to describe what I was feeling inside when I looked across the street and saw what I saw. I literally groaned and said “No, not like this. This isn’t how He would want this. This is so wrong,” I adamantly exclaimed. My eyes filled up as I looked back at the guy I had been talking to. He just shook his head and muttered, “I know. You should go give them an earful.”

I then asked him, “So this is why you have your camera out here?” “Yeah,” he replied. “We’re doing a documentary.” I looked right at him and I said, “Well document this.”

Meanwhile, Denise is just watching, not saying a word but I could feel her silent agreement and we made our way across the street. What happened next was nothing less than an out-of-body experience. There were at least 20-plus people gathered, and a few of those were kids, little kids all sucked into this public hate display, and all of the adults and a couple of the kids were holding the most vile signs I had ever seen in a public demonstration. There were a few different signs though their theme of hatred was the same shouting out from every sign. In big letters, the signs screamed: “God hates you.” “God hates” – this is so hard for me to write right now; I’m crying as I see these words – “God hates fags.” “You’re going to hell.” I was so enraged, so unbelievably enraged, I didn’t really see anybody but the head honcho and he’s who I went straight to.

“What are you doing?” I screamed. “What is this? Why are you doing this?” I fired off my questions like a round of bullets. His calm reply sent me from zero to blur in a second and had me reloading quick like. “We’re preaching the Gospel.”

“Are you crazy? This isn’t the Gospel. God doesn’t hate the homosexual; He hates their lifestyle. He loves them.”

“Oh yeah,” he grimaced, and does He love the people in hell?”

“He did,” I responded. Suddenly out of my right eye, I could see the lens of a camera making its way closer and closer to my face, but I couldn’t stop. “Why are you doing this?”

“This is the only Gospel this generation understands,” he spewed.

“Yeah, well it’s people like you and demonstrations like this that do more kingdom damage because there’s no way a homosexual will come to Christ according to your Gospel. This is so wrong.” With that, I turned and saw Denise standing ever so calmly off to the side, not too far from a group of police officers, so I made my way over to her quietly, and we made our way into the Staples Center.

I was able to turn my anger off and enjoy the American Idol Live Tour, and it wasn’t until the next morning in my quiet time that I realized that what I had experienced is what God calls righteous anger. In the moments that followed my reading and prayer time, I felt a leading to this new series which is highly controversial to say the least, so I would covet your prayers. This new series definitely has media relevance, and I know that I know that I know I’m not to blog on a show, but on a highly publicized issue, so please join me every Tuesday, for however long it takes, for the new “Tuesday Morning Series/Proposition 8.”

Blessings

    How very sad that in a day when our nation needs God the most, we have people who purpose to destroy the very love of God by spewing hatred and breeding discontent among those who need Him the most. I once saw some scribbling on a wall that said “I feel like I’m missing something, yet I don’t even know what it is.

    Jesus said in Mark 16:15,16

    15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

    16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
    KJV

    We are called to draw this world to His love, not away from it. If we all take a stand against hatred and lift up the name of Jesus, we will make a difference in this world. That’s what He has called us to do. Let us be instruments of worship and of love to a lost and dying world.

    Keep up the good work Kim! Lift His banner of love high so we can all see!

    Wow, I hope if I were in the same circumstances I would of have done the same thing.

    John 3:17 says, “For God did not send His son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him”.

    It really makes me sad to hear this, and someday they will be meeting their maker and have to answer for their behavior.

    Stay bold in Him my friend. Love you!

    WOW!!…..very disturbing and flairs up anger in my heart for the display of hate in the name of God. God made Hell for the devil, not people…but unfortunately people will and have gone there by their own free will. God gives us a choice…follow Him and have eternal life in heaven OR follow the ways of the world, the devil and our own selfish desires and you can have eternity in hell. God HATES sin!!! But He loves the person….the only way to overcome our sinful, selfish desires(including sexual sin) is to surrender them ALL to the Lord.(repent, turn away from) We can’t do it with out Him. People like this group that holds up these kinds of signs only promote more HATE and the only dialog that can take place would be arguments and nashing of teeth. They also give the true Christ follower a bad rep and makes it very difficult for the person who is seeking for the truth! Will be praying for you Evinda…for courage, wisdom and discernment on this subject. I have an X-sister – in- law that divorced my brother after 22 yrs of marriage to go marry some other woman. It has been devastating to him and their children and trying to keep some sense of normalcy in his home. God bless you!!

    Susie,
    unfortunately, women leaving their husbands for other women is becoming all too commonplace, so thanks for the prayers and the words of encouragement. I’ve been told that I shouldn’t touch on this subject because it’s too controversial, and yet, I cannot deny the leading and calling to address this in a LOVING way…..Keep checking in with us:)
    Much love
    Evinda
