Homosexuality is a sin. This is true and undeniable. Christians receive a lot of heat for saying this, but rarely does anyone on the left acknowledge this one simple fact: pointing out someone’s sin is not condemning them to death, it is calling them to life.
You see, the message of the Gospel is often misunderstood, but it is very simple: trust Christ, repent of your sins, and have everlasting life with the Father. Otherwise, you will perish in your sins.
God gives us a chance in His Son Jesus Christ for redemption, and Jesus did not come to earth to condemn, but to save the world through Him (John 3:17). We are charged with one simple task: to deliver this message to every creature on earth (Mark 16:15).
We received tragic news today that as the nation has their eyes fixed on the fallout of the tragic shooting in Texas, another tragic domestic dispute cost one young man his life.
In Henderson, Nevada, a man gunned down and killed his 14-year-old son, Giovanni Melton, because of the boy’s sexuality, according to his former foster mother.
“He hated the fact that his son was gay,” said Sonja Jones. “I’m sure that inside of his mind, he would rather have a dead son than a gay son.”
“I’m hearing his dad had caught him with his boyfriend before and pulled out a gun on him,” she added.
According to police reports, 53-year-old Wendell Melton shot his son in the boy’s apartment where he lived alone (it is at this point unclear why a 14-year-old lived by himself). They had had an argument at which point Melton fired on Giovanni. Giovanni passed away at the hospital as a result of his injuries.
This is one of the sickest incidents of child abuse we could possibly report on.
A dead son is NOT better than a gay son. Life is always precious to God, and He wants to see all His children restored to Him, not gunned down in cold blood by another lost sinner who is equally in need of His Grace, mercy, and forgiveness.
Saints, let this be a reminder that our job on this earth is not to condemn but to save. Imagine if someone could have gotten to this poor boy before he was killed and shared the Good News of his Savior. There is a chance for every living person to receive Christ, regardless of how they have lived their life.
Share the Gospel with every living creature, because you never know when it might be too late for them!
