The beauty of our brokenness

Unread postby musicmonkey » Fri Aug 29, 2008 8:23 pm

I think everyone who knows me well knows that I generally despise mainstream music. However, given the recent discussions on gay marriage, I'd like to discuss the message of Christina Aguilera's video for Beautiful.

We all have problems and sin in our lives---

The thread is called "beauty of our brokenness" and I agree that its the sin that is ugly not the person.

Hateful words can bring you down but at the same time you can't confuse hateful words if somebody tells you that its a sin to be "gay"-----

Those may sound hateful to the person at first but its actually the most loving words that they could hear because they then can be told of Jesus and the love that God has for us

John 8:5-8: The religion scholars and Pharisees led in a woman who had been caught in an act of adultery. They stood her in plain sight of everyone and said, "Teacher, this woman was caught red-handed in the act of adultery. Moses, in the Law, gives orders to stone such persons. What do you say?" They were trying to trap him into saying something incriminating so they could bring charges against him. Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger in the dirt. They kept at him, badgering him. He straightened up and said, "The sinless one among you, go first: Throw the stone."

I agree with you---

Your not suppose to throw stones at the sinner---

I don't think you should scream the word FAGGOT at a Gay person---

But at the same time we do need to let them know that they are lost and their lifestyle is wrong.

What is lost?

Do we also tell the overweight that their gluttony is wrong?

What if we smoke weed or look at porn? Who are we to tell them what's wrong when we have our own sin?

Can the US really tell Russia not to attack Georgia when the US attacked Iraq?
