The world was introduced to Caitlyn Jenner yesterday. She hit a world record gathering the most followers in four hours on Twitter. She was praised for her strength and beauty. People either thought she was absolutely wonder or downright disgusting.
I'm not going to tell you my opinion on right and wrong. He vs. She.
But here is what I'm begging.
The Christian community has a HUGE opportunity.
To show Caitlyn love like Jesus would.
Christians like to get hung up on what's in the Bible that we often literally forget what Jesus came to do.
We get, what I call them, our "sinner stones" ready and start hurling away.
Ready to hit anything or anyone who dare disagree from what the Bible may say.
How about this.
Let's continue to fuel this scandal, but let's fuel it in a different way.
We should make this a Scandal of Grace.
Let's shock the community with the love of Jesus, let's accept, invite and cherish those "outsiders"
we like to pretend don't exist.
We can actually show her what unconditional love is like.
Christians, we have one chance to get this right.
Love will always win.
After all, no one came to meet Jesus by getting the Bible thrown at them.
