“The greatest love that has ever been”


Fri, Sep 6th, 2013
Posted in Preston Letter to the Editor



To the Editor,

When the August 12 issue arrived, my first reaction was shock and then sadness to see this front page article. My first thoughts were: Have I ever seen a Christian marriage make the front page and if so, how long has it been? My next reaction was sadness to think that our nation is departing more and more from the Christian principles on which it was founded.

The Holy Bible speaks clearly on this matter of homosexual behavior. Starting in Genesis 2:22-24 “we are told that in the beginning God created them male and female” The New Testament also speaks clearly about this issue in Matthew 19:4-6. Please pull that Bible off the shelf and read it for yourself. This is Jesus speaking. Friends, it is time to take a stand for the Christ who died a cruel death on the cross because he loved us more than we can ever imagine. The first commandment is to Love the Lord with all your heart, soul, and mind. The second is to love your neighbor as yourself. It is because of this love that I write today concerning this matter. If we don’t speak out for Christ and what He stands for, it won’t be long before we may lose the privilege of our freedom of speech and our freedom to worship as we know it today.
