For if I preach the gospel, that gives me no ground for boasting. For necessity is laid upon me. Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!1 Corinthians 9:16
The only reason Christians should be going to gay pride parades is to proclaim the name of Jesus Christ. This is what glorifies God. Yet, for some reason, those who profess Christ feel the need to show up at these events and, well, apologize for Christ. The gospel is offensive and if you’re not offending unrepentant sinners with the gospel, you’re not preaching the gospel.
Woe to them!
CBS17 — Jamilah Salvador was walking in her first ever Pride parade this weekend in the Philippines when she came across something unexpected at the finish. Christians were holding signs apologizing for ways the religion had hurt the LGBTQ community.
The 19-year-old was marching with thousands of others in the annual parade in Marikina City, east of the country’s capital, Manila. The parade came to a close at Marikina Stadium, where Salvador was pleasantly surprised by the Christian group.
“My heart really felt light upon seeing them,” Salvador told CBS News. “I stopped when I saw them and read all of their messages and immediately felt goosebumps all over my body, then my tears started to build up.”
