Gay Christian Bingo

This is a game of bingo you can play, it’s called, “Things some Christians say to the LGBT* community but mainly to male gays because they’re only the ones who exist really in the Christian world”. 

Tick the ones that have been said to you. Have fun!

Christianity is not about the afterlife

Well, to me anyway. I find that Christianity surpasses such a thing because it calls people to the here and now. Jesus said for us to love all, friend or enemy, and that such love produces good fruit. Now love and peace bless this world, and in turn, bless the future of this world. Perhaps humans are in some respect guardians of Earth. Whether we are guardians or not does not necessarily matter, what does matter however, is the fact our actions have repercussions and consequences. Hate and war ruin and damage, love and peace unite and strengthen. As Christians, we are commanded to love, thus, if we follow this commandment, we shall have positive consequences and history can remember the generation kindly.

Christianity is about compassion.

Christianity is about friendship and fellowship.

Christianity is about overcoming differences.

Christianity is about forgiveness and mercy. Christianity is about the good side of humanity. The side of humanity which repels greed, which battles peacefully against injustice, which does not reject anyone.

Christianity is also about not making people oppressed. Making people live in fear. Making people be a believer in Christ Jesus. Christianity is much more than all of these. What good is a fear of Hell? What good is just waiting for Heaven? What good comes from merely focussing on the next life?

"For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." (Matthew 25:35-40)

If God is love, would He rebuke a relationship of love?
If God is light, would He reject someone who found their way out of darkness?
If God is Jesus, would He lack sympathy, empathy and understanding?
If God is just, is that where His power to forgive comes from?
If God is kind, will not He show mercy?

Is not God the one of infinite compassion?
Is not God the being of light?
Is not God the source of love?
Is not God the one who  judges?
Is not God, the Messiah Christ Jesus?
