Baptist Press article on July 12, 2005 - I am gay-friendly. Wow - these folks really believe that evil can be overcome by good. What a concept. Was written in Scripture a long time ago, and Christ followers through the centuries have believed and practiced it. Seems like lots of folks today who claim to follow Christ (and probably truly are regenerate) have forgotten that Christ's command to us in Romans 12:21 "Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."
We have been really good about "taking a stand" or "making a statement" in a public way, so that "the world" will know what we believe. I'm pretty sure that most people in the U.S. knows, or has heard what "Christians" believe. I pray that there would be more people in the U.S. (and elsewhere for that matter) who will SEE our beliefs lived out in front of them through service - overcoming evil with good.
The 411 will impact their community for eternity. Will we?
