Christian: Take a biblical-worldview approach to 'Pride Month'



By Sharayah Colter


…for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds…” 2 Peter 2:8

 

As June begins, what has become known as "Pride Month" will emerge in full force. It will be nearly impossible to navigate from June 1 to June 30 without being assaulted by images of rainbows tortured into symbolism God never intended. Sexually deviant dress and behavior – both homosexual and heterosexual – will be rampant, even in the presence of children. Transgenderism will be elevated and effectively worshiped by culture at large, and if you do not bow to this secular religion which stands in opposition to Christ and His Word on many levels, you risk being ridiculed, ostracized, and rejected. Risk it.

 

Scripture calls Christ’s followers to live to obey God, not man. Don’t be needlessly caustic, but do speak the Truth in love, and leave the results up to God. 

 

How can a Christian respond through a biblical worldview to the “lawless deeds” on display this month? By applying the same instructions Scripture gives: “How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your Word.” (Psalm 119:9)

 

Think on these truths from Scripture throughout the next month:

 

  • Romans 12:2: “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

 

  • Acts 4:18-10: “So they called them and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered and said to them, ‘Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.’”

 

  • Daniel 3:17-18: “If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us from Your Majesty’s hand. But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.”

 

  • Ephesians 5:11-12: “Have no fellowship with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret.”

 

  • Colossians 3:2: “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.”

 

  • 1 John 1:5: “This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.”

 

Like Lot, we live in a depraved society, and our souls can easily be tortured. Rely on the faithful words of Scripture to create a fortress in your mind that cannot be penetrated by the lies of Satan concerning what is good and acceptable and fulfilling. Rely on Scripture to embolden you to stand courageously for truth and for Christ. Rely on Scripture to train you to have right responses to the evil around you and to the people around you who need an introduction to the saving grace of Jesus Christ. 

 

“…and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” – Matthew 28:20
