http://nyti.ms/1TLGAbm The above link is about a "Christian" singer who is admitting to the World that he is a homosexual and that he has left his wife and two children so that he can live his life as the person he "was always meant to be". He isn't the first "Christian" to admit that he is choosing to live a life of homosexuality and he won't be the last. My question is... does Trey or any other Christian who deliberately chooses to live a life of what God calls sin...have the right to still call themselves Christians? It is my belief that they don't have the right to call themselves Christians anymore. Why? Because Christians don't get to define the meaning of Christianity. God and Jesus Christ defined the meaning of a Christian as a person who repented (turned away from) their sins, confessed them to Christ, choose Christ as their Lord and Savior and received redemption (a washing away of their sins) and salvation... as well as becoming God's beloved sons and daughters. As beloved sons and daughters we received the gift of the Holy Spirit to live within each of us and teach us God's ways of righteousness and truth as well as to lead and guide us away from sin and towards the holiness and purity that is God. When a Christian falls into any sin, the Holy Spirit is there to convict (show them the sin) and lead them to repentance and confession of that sin so that Christ can wash them clean once again. Christians know what sin is because God's Word through the Bible tells them what it is, and the Holy Spirit living within them, reminds them of that truth they have learned. So for a Christian to know what sin is and then to deliberately choose to continue in sin and call it good, not evil...is to basically call God and His truth a lie, and to announce that they have no need of a Savior for they have no sin. You cannot call yourself a Christian if you don't believe what God has said is true, and if you do not know you are a sinner in need of a Savior. Because satan rules this World and is out to steal, kill, and destroy everything that God has pronounced "Good"...it is no surprise to a Christian that satan is the one telling people that what God says is not true or that there is no such thing as sin. The Bible calls satan the "father of lies" and there is nothing satan loves more than being able to deceive you into believing him instead of God. For those who are not Christians, satan has a very easy time of lying and deceiving people. But why does it seem that satan is having such an easy time of deceiving many Christians into believing his lies now days too? In my opinion it is because Christians are not reading the Bible which tells them what God says is right and wrong, tells them all about satan and his evil, and gives them all they need to know to stand firm and win the battle against evil. God has given us armor in the truth of His Word, and in the wisdom and discernment of the Holy Spirit so we can recognize God's truth and satan's lies. But if we don't read the Bible to know God's truth then we also won't discern it when the Holy Spirit shares it with us either...when we don't have that knowledge and wisdom...satan can deceive us as easily as he can those who are not Christians. And this is exactly what is happening in today's World. If you call yourself a Christian, but then turn around and announce to the World that you are deliberately choosing to live a life of what God calls sin, if you deliberately choose to call sin good and what you were always meant to be...or do. Then in my opinion you do not have the right to call yourself a Christian anymore...not until or if you choose to repent of that sin, confess it to Christ, and let Him bring you redemption that only Christians have through the washing of the blood of Christ. Trey Pearson of the above link will no longer call himself a husband to his wife...or married...and neither should he call himself a Christian as long as he will not be living the life of one.
