The black church in Prince George’s County stands to wield wide influence in the outcome of the gay marriage referendum when it is decided by voters this fall, but the first step is getting to the ballot. Under Maryland law the sponsors of the effort to place this issue on the ballot have until June to get their signatures in and verified. Feeling the pressure churches all over the county are holding voter registration and petition drives. The latest is Fort Washington Baptist Church.

  1. John 13:34 ~ “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” Sad to know that so many reject the words of Christ.

  2. Then there’s also Matthew 5:10, “Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

  3. And then there’s “Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such WERE some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified; but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God” (I Cor. 6:9-11). Is it not love to encourage others to live in such a way that they would inherit the kingdom of God? Is it love to see someone making an eternally fatal decision and then to do nothing to warn them? Is that love? Blessed are those who are persecuted when they try to warn others to live in such a way that they might inherit the kingdom of God; for this is not persecution — this is love precious ones.

  4. Real LOVE is reaching out to homosexuals and calling them to repent and believe the gospel. Affirming their self-destructive lifestyle in the name of ‘love’ is the exact opposite of love…the same way affirming an alcoholic, fornicator, adulterer is not an act of Christian love. If they are truly washed, their behavior will be changed by God (1 John 3:4-10).
