Steve and Sally Kern believe in God and Jesus Christ, as well. However, they believe in a conservative God, a God that limits love and acceptance to those with particular beliefs. To see God, they need to look in the Bible.
If Jesus were to approach Steve and Sally Kern and a gay person standing in the street, would Jesus ignore the gay person as “lost” and cast his loving gaze only on Steve and Sally? No, he would not. I know this in my heart. My faith is from the heart.
Steve and Sally’s faith is rooted in their minds, born from years of conservative Bible study. Out of this come rules and regulations about God’s relationship with people. This is a mental approach to faith.
I pray a time will come that all the Steve and Sally Kerns of the world will open their hearts to God and stop using their minds to decide God’s love is not given freely and equally to us all.
