The pop music star and actress [Miley Cyrus] Tweeted “ALL LOVE is equal” on Friday, along with a picture of her new tattoo permanently supporting gay marriage. “Where does it say in the bible to judge others?” Cyrus Tweeted. “Oh right. It doesn’t. GOD is the only judge honey. GOD is love.”
First- all love isn’t equal. There are various sorts of love and ‘erotic’ love is the least sort.
Second, the Bible does indeed urge us to determine the rightness or wrongness of behavior in both ourselves and others. Line after line and page after page God calls men and women to denounce the evils of society. Pick up a Bible, Miss Cyrus, and read any of the Prophets (assuming you can read). Furthermore, Jesus himself declared ‘by their fruits you will know them’. Naturally this means that we are obliged to observe the behaviors of others and call them to account when they deviate from God’s purpose.
Third, take a few minutes to look at Romans 1:24ff.
Fourth, no one among us is your ‘honey’ and we don’t appreciate being demeaned by your so calling us.
And fifth, God is love, but love is not God! And it’s reprehensible of you to make an idol out of authentic love.
It is a tiresome thing to hear again and again the wicked and defenders of wickedness cry out ‘don’t judge me’. That phrase is constantly repeated only by the guilty and those with a guilty conscience. We aren’t judging you, we are declaring your deeds evil just as the Prophets, Jesus, and Paul would.
Finally, stop attempting to use the bible to defend your perversity. If you aren’t willing to listen to it concerning your need for righteousness of life leave your hands off it altogether. It doesn’t belong to you, it belongs to those who believe.
For all these reasons, Miss Cyrus, here’s your Dilly. Wear it proudly. You definitely deserve it. And never speak of the Bible again.
