Love vs Acceptance
Does Jesus accept everyone and everything? The simple answer is, He does not.
Heaven and hell:
Jesus loves everyone, but that doesn’t mean He accepts everyone and everyone’s lifestyle. Because of this, so many will miss heaven and end up spending eternity in hell. Jesus doesn’t accept every religion or everyone’s lifestyle choice. When we come to Him, we must be willing to change.
Lauren Daigle said, “Ellen DeGeneres is a bundle of light. She is joyful. She was so kind. Ellen is just a beautiful person.” The problem with this is that no one who actually reads the Bible can be under the slightest doubt as to what the Bible says about homosexuality. It is sin. Ms. Daigle began her comments by stating that she has homosexual friends. So what? If she does, she should want to tell them the truth so they could possibly repent and get right with God.
We must love people enough to tell them the truth — that they can be healed and delivered from their sin. In Romans 1:18–32, the Bible says God has made the truth obvious to the ungodly. So, Ellen is not a bundle of light but of darkness, leading many to hell. She, just like anyone else, needs to repent and begin to live according to the word. Jesus accepts us the way we are, as long as we are willing to repent and change our ways, our lives, to line up with His word. If we are not willing, we are doomed to eternal death.
Let’s not be deceived. Let’s begin, as never before, to purpose to do the will of God. Proverbs 10:4 (KJV) says, He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.
