Michael Sam, 24, a football player for the University of Missouri, announced to the world Sunday that he is gay. Since that time, numerous comments have been made, and Christian athlete, Deion Sanders, is one, according to GMA.
If drafted this year, Sam will be the first openly gay NFL player in history. Sam says, “It’s a load off my chest.”
Outspoken, Deion Sanders and former NFL player tweeted: God hates the Sin but loves the Sinner. Let's stop judging others and understand we all sin. Your sin ain't my sin but we all sin. Truth
In 2013, Jason Collins, an NBA player came out and received massive support for being “courageous.” He stated: “I’m a 34-year-old NBA center. I’m black. And I’m gay.” Collins is a professed Christian.
Sam made a similar statement, mentioning that he is a football player, his culture and his sexual status. “I’m an openly proud gay man.”
Sam comes from a family immersed with tragedy and criminal acts: two brothers in jail, a missing brother, a brother murdered, and a baby sister that died whom he never got to meet.
Do you think a life of tragedy has anything to do with a person’s sexual orientation? And, overall, what causes a person to become gay, which according to the Bible is unnatural (against nature)?
"For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet." Romans 1:26-27
Deion got it right when he said, “We all sin.” By the way, we have not read nor heard that Michael Sam professes to be a Christian.
Lastly, what are you doing to ward off the set backs, tragedy or hurtful things in your life in order to live a life pleasing in God’s eyes.
