Every Christian who loves the gospel of Jesus Christ laments and rebukes any celebration of “PRIDE,” because “PRIDE” is sin. Because we love God and love all people, we must hate all sin. Sin is a transgression of the law. “PRIDE” transgresses both the law of creation and the moral law. The law is a schoolmaster that leads us to see our sin and our need of Christ , as Savior and Lord. We cannot faithfully preach the gospel without faithfully preaching the Law. If we want to see those who celebrate “PRIDE” come to salvation in Christ, we must love them enough to speak the truth about their sin so they will see their need of God’s mercy and grace.
“Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality,nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” – 1 Corinthians 6:9-11
