Generally, the educated Christians I know condemn the latter with little hesitation, but not the former.
Why is that?
They fear and obey the powerful (not Christ), and attack their easy targets; usually weak sinners (whom He came to save).
Educated Christians just like today's said little to nothing against this, because it was the position of the powerful and the influential.
High society and media even seemed to relish mercilessly destroying the lives of people caught in bad sexual habits.
(Sound familiar?) :)
Sin, and political/cultural infamy.
What do promoters of #Pride2019 have in common with racists circa 1919-1930?
Sin, and political/cultural power.
But wait there's more!
Bad news for Christians who fear and obey the powerful: He came to SAVE sinners. As in, from their sin.
That means two different hard-to-swallow things...
2 We're not allowed to mercilessly condemn the sinners whom the powerful happen to scapegoat during our brief time on earth (much as I know y'all like easy targets!).
He didn't just die for sinners.
In His preaching, He chose to especially lift up the LOWLIEST sinners and identified Himself with them more than with the haughty, comfortable, powerful sinner.
If there's a sinner in most need of our Christian ministry--not our mercy, but our urgent words of admonition to turn from sin--it's the sinner with the least earthly reason to repent.
In 2019? That'd be the American with all those same worldly "advantages," but also living with ... #Pride.
