Are Homosexuals the Enemy?

When considering the agenda of homosexual activists, we should be very careful as we risk adopting a mindset that considers the homosexual to be our adversary. Of course, on a political level, this is true. On a political level, we must stand firmly opposed to legislation which would allow such immoral behavior to transform our society and needlessly expose our children to lifestyles which they have no ability to understand or evaluate. On a political level, we must resist legislation which would restrict the exercise of religious liberties. However, for most of us, the political nature of this subject is secondary to its personal nature. There are some who are strong political activists, and we need such people. If truth be told, we could use far more activists, and we ought to encourage and champion the efforts of such individuals. But the vast majority of Christians are not politically active. Instead, for them this issue revolves around people—co-workers, friends, relatives. And people must be treated differently than political platforms and legislative proposals.

It is very difficult to truly love and reach out to people when they are seen as the enemy. It is very difficult to come alongside someone who is viewed as a threat. Yet for many of our friends and family members who come out of the closet, and for many of the homosexuals whom we may encounter in the workforce, this gay agenda is larger than their personal aspirations. For many of these people, all they care about is being loved and accepted for whom they believe themselves to be. Many of these homosexuals are not interested in eliminating age of sexual consent laws and securing homosexual adoption rights. They just want to have relationships and a lifestyle which are considered to be normal and acceptable by society. Just as not every one of us is fairly represented by our politicians and political party affiliations, so too not every homosexual is fairly represented by gay activists. By no means are homosexuals our adversaries. Rather, they are people in need of a Savior, just like every one of us.

The true enemy is the spirit of antichrist which is embodied in our adversary, the Devil. Ephesians 6:12 reminds us that we are not to become so focused on the physical manifestation of sin that we forgot that our struggle is truly spiritual in nature. Ephesians 6:11-12 says, “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” Homosexuality is merely a symptom; our sin nature is the disease, and this sin nature is being fueled by our true adversary, the Devil.
