Lady Gaga, Jesus and Homosexuality

I will readily admit, I am no fan of Lady Gaga.  I didn't even know what people were talking about when I first heard about her.

I do know that I find the song, "I was born this way" interesting at best, but offensive at its core.  Of course, it promotes homosexuality and encourages the acceptance of it owing to the fact that people are "born this way."

I haven't quite made up my mind on whether or not people are born gay or choose to be gay. To me, it really doesn't matter.

But to those who say they are born gay I would present what Jesus would say to you: "You must be born again."

People who use the excuse to be gay by saying they were born that way, especially those who claim to follow Jesus and remain gay, really have no excuse to keep on sinning.  For in the experience of true Christian regeneration, a person truly IS born again and takes on the character and nature of Christ.

2 Corinthians 5:21 says "He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him."  He BECOMES our sin and we TAKE ON His righteousness.

If you are TRULY BORN AGAIN, any previous sin tendency, whether homosexuality, hatred, envy, gossip, or other wickedness and unrighteousness are simply done away with and you put on a NEW SELF.  If there is no change in behavior or desire, then MOST LIKELY, there was no change of heart and the person is still lost.

I don't say this make people mad.  I say this because there are some people who are making the excuse to continue to behave as homosexuals because they have bought into the lie of our culture that says, "I was born that way."

Again, Jesus says, "You must be born again."

1866 Steinway Piano

Sally and I found something so fabulous today, I simply had to take pictures and share it with you.  At Saied's Music in Tulsa, they had an 1866 Steinway 8 1/2 ft concert grand piano.



It had the original ivory keys and case. It stated that the strings, pegs, hammers and felt had been replaced, but everything else was original. The stool was of the era, but didn't seem to match.

The wood was stained and not painted. It had a delicate tone.  In a word, it was EXQUISITE!

Inside the case was the stamped plate pictured below:


It is an extremely rare piano.  Yours for only $45,000 or so.

The brand new one right next to it was $85K...
