For Christians, that contentious time of the year is approaching—pride month. As June unfolds, relentless LGBTQ propaganda will practically engulf our lives. You’ll see it everywhere—on television, in your children’s schools, in your workplace, on billboards, in the streets, in restaurants, in advertisements, in social media feeds, in corporate logos, in sports arenas, in entertainment venues, in public libraries, and even in some synagogues of Satan that some people call “churches.”

The nation will essentially be draped in the rainbow flag for at least an entire month, and the parades and festivals will continue throughout the entire summer. It will be inescapable, barring quitting life altogether, locking yourself in your homes, and closing the blinds.

As Christians, how should we approach this onslaught of God-hating foolishness? James 4:4 warns us, “You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.” James reminds us that we are to be in the world, but not of the world. The world is our mission field, and we were given the ministry of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:18-20).

Yes, we are called to proclaim the everlasting name of Jesus to a lost and dying world that hates its Creator. At the same time, we are called to be separate, set apart, and live lives that reflect the nature and character of God. This means we must love what God loves and hate what He hates. The normalization and celebration of LGBTQ lifestyles are not merely cultural trends—they are direct affronts to God’s created order and His holy standards.

Romans 1 is explicit about the nature of such sins. It speaks of men and women exchanging natural relations for those that are contrary to nature, receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error (Romans 1:26-27). Hopefully, you don’t need me to paint you a picture of what that actually means. But it is clear that this is not just a temporal destruction but an eternal one. Such repulsive rebellion indicates a reprobate mind, and according to Scripture, those who practice such things deserve to die (Romans 1:32).

This is not our judgment but God’s righteous decree.

So then, how should we respond? Our response should be resolute. We must speak the truth in love (Ephesians 4:15), but this love is certainly not the world’s version of “love”—tolerance and acceptance of sin. True love warns of the danger ahead and calls for repentance. We must stand firm on the foundation of God’s revelation, boldly declaring the truth of the Gospel, which includes the reality of sin and the necessity of repentance. And we certainly cannot be content with the pervasive influence of such sin in our culture, especially when it targets the minds and hearts of our children.

However, we must also remember that we are saved by God’s grace and mercy. It is only by His love for us that we are given a new heart and a renewed mind that is able to love Him back.

“There, but for the grace of God, go I.”

Remember, we were once in rebellion against God, dead in our trespasses and sins, but He made us alive together with Christ (Ephesians 2:1-5). This humbling truth should drive us to pity those who are still in darkness, not with a worldly compassion that tolerates sin, but with a godly sorrow that desires their repentance and salvation coupled with the knowledge that many will never come to know Christ. It is a sad reality, but the truth of the matter is that God hates sin and He is good and right to cast them into Hell—and in God’s goodness, we rejoice.

As we navigate this pride month, let us do so with unwavering conviction. Let us reject the world’s pressure to conform and instead be transformed by the renewing of our minds (Romans 12:2). Let us hold fast to the truth of Scripture, proclaiming the Gospel without compromise. And let us pray fervently for those trapped in sin, knowing that God alone can bring them to repentance and eternal life.
