I HEAR CHAINS BREAKING…
(If you are not a born-again, spirit-filled, Child of the Most High God, this post is NOT directed at you and DOES NOT PERTAIN TO YOU. BUT, the written word of God is definitely for ALL that have chosen to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior)
How sad to see someone “come out” on social media, OR sharing the fact that they are having children out of wedlock, OR sharing that they are involved in extra martial affairs (which by-the-way all of these are a cry for help) and not attempting to encourage them in the things of God, OR liking their status update concerning these things… which is your agreement with their sin. These people have deep rooted issues and your not helping them. On the other hand, if you yourself are not living a life of righteousness unto the Lord, why would you encourage them in the will and way of God?
As a child, I use to go crabbing every summer back home in Maryland. I am reminded, of how crabs in a bushel interact. When one attempts to climb to the top and find a way out, not one of the other crabs is concerned until they reach the top and then try to break free. All the sudden every crab in the bushel reaches up to pull that one back down.
I suggest you take a good hard look at those coming into agreement with you… telling you they love you no matter what, how proud of you they are, etc… All that sounds good, until you come back to the reality that God is not pleased with sin. If He said, He does not like it, then HE DOES NOT APPROVE OF IT. This is not an issue of whether or not your family/ friends love you. When someone makes you #aware that an action is sinful (aka against God), #THAT… #IS #LOVE.
One must question themselves, when others come quickly to pet you and your sin (don’t think you are under no obligation to be your brothers/ sisters keeper. OR that trying to make that person “feel” loved is all they need). THEY NEED A REAL RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD, NOT A RELATIONSHIP OF PLEASING THE FLESH OR OTHERS.
And before you start with “YOUR JUDGING or STOP JUDGING”, Go read the HOLY BIBLE! No one can JUDGE you, BETTER THAN ELOHIM GOD. ALL I’M SAYING IS HE HAS ALREADY GIVEN YOU HIS WORD CONCERNING LGBTQ, ADULTERY AND FORNICATION ISSUES (all sexual sins) .
BTW… I was caught up in most of the sins listed above and below in the word, at one time or another. The one reason I can talk about it openly today is that JESUS in my life Full-Time now and has made a TURNAROUND difference in my life. I’m not perfect, but in HIM I am being perfected. The time I spend one on one, with the Lord Jesus, has made positive change in my life and that is my hope for each one that reads this and may be offended. Sexual Perversion is similar to other giants we must deal with in life (such as addiction). This too can be overcome, but one thing is for sure, you have to choose to deny your flesh and obey God, rather than please self.

1 Corinthians 6 (NLT)
Avoiding Lawsuits with Christians
6 When one of you has a dispute with another believer, how dare you file a lawsuit and ask a secular court to decide the matter instead of taking it to other believers[a]!
***POSTING/ SHARING YOUR SIN TO GET OTHERS TO AGREE IS DANGEROUS TERRITORY AND IS JUST A STEP BEFORE FILING A LAWSUIT
2 Don’t you realize that someday we believers will judge the world? And since you are going to judge the world, can’t you decide even these little things among yourselves? 3 Don’t you realize that we will judge angels? So you should surely be able to resolve ordinary disputes in this life. 4 If you have legal disputes about such matters, why go to outside judges who are not respected by the church? 5 I am saying this to shame you. Isn’t there anyone in all the church who is wise enough to decide these issues? 6 But instead, one believer[b] sues another—right in front of unbelievers!
7 Even to have such lawsuits with one another is a defeat for you. Why not just accept the injustice and leave it at that? Why not let yourselves be cheated? 8 Instead, you yourselves are the ones who do wrong and cheat even your fellow believers.[c]
9 Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, 10 or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people—none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God. 11 Some of you were once like that. But you were cleansed; you were made holy; you were made right with God by calling on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
Avoiding Sexual Sin
12 You say, “I am allowed to do anything”—but not everything is good for you. And even though “I am allowed to do anything,” I must not become a slave to anything. 13 You say, “Food was made for the stomach, and the stomach for food.” (This is true, though someday God will do away with both of them.) But you can’t say that our bodies were made for sexual immorality. They were made for the Lord, and the Lord cares about our bodies. 14 And God will raise us from the dead by his power, just as he raised our Lord from the dead.
15 Don’t you realize that your bodies are actually parts of Christ? Should a man take his body, which is part of Christ, and join it to a prostitute? Never! 16 And don’t you realize that if a man joins himself to a prostitute, he becomes one body with her? For the Scriptures say, “The two are united into one.”[d] 17 But the person who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with him.
18 Run from sexual sin! No other sin so clearly affects the body as this one does. For sexual immorality is a sin against your own body. 19 Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, 20 for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.
