When You're the Token Lesbian of Your Christian Friends
And what is the greatest commandment in the Bible?
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”--Matthew 22:36
So with my strong and unwavering faith, I will choose to hang out with the sinners, for I am one as well....we all are sinners and fall short in the glory of God. I will spend time with the "common man" as the Bible says.
Roman 12:16 says, "Live in harmony with each other. Don’t be too proud to enjoy the company of ordinary people. And don’t think you know it all!"
I know some Christians who say to STAY AWAY from unbelievers. But if your faith can't be shaken, then what is there to fear? God says to fear not, for He is with you. Jesus spent time with the sinners, despite what religious people thought of Him. These people aren't truly reading what the Bible tells us to do. And when you point it out to them, you'll either get total silence, or cherry picked version of what they 'think' it means. It's all very black and white.
My final thought on this is to pray for people like this. These people are insecure and unsure of their own fate. They're not sure if they're "right" with God, or else they wouldn't tear you down or verbally attack you. Be quick to listen, and slow to anger----and if people disagree with you, just pray on it. That's all you can do.
Trust what God thinks of you, not what people say about you.
