Wear White but not clean


Mat 19:3 The Pharisees also came to Him, testing Him, and saying to Him, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for just any reason?”

Mat 19: 8 He said to them, “Moses, because of the hardness of your hearts, permitted you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so. 9 And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is divorced commits adultery.”

In Singapore, there is a "wear white" campaign by religious faiths including Pastor Khong of Love Singapore coming against the GLBT Pink Dot event. Religious faiths are getting more radicalised and insisting on their own special rights whilst denying the basic rights of others.

Quickly leveraging on one extremist muslim teacher who begin a "wear white" campaign, the Christian mega church group, Love Singapore also followed suit to wear white. Are they  being more ecumenical?

Why are the people of faith in white so against gays? because in the bible their greatest sin was adultery. That was why many wives was allowed in the bible.

In our religious zeal, we would not mind being unequally yoke with non Christian believers. What is there in common? for in our modern day Christianity we have insisted on marriage between one man and one woman whilst family in the bible is complex with Solomon having many wives. Even Abraham and David had a concubine/ or mistress.

For the bible emphasis is whom we worship, the God of israel, and not who we sleep in bed with. As Christians we worship Jesus and should not be unequally yoked. Aligning with another faith to come against the weak is not of God, and is not of Love.

Are we centred on Christ, or are we centered on religious laws becoming no different than other faiths?

When we wear white, we are promoting ourselves as being righteous and Holy apart from Jesus Christ. Do our many daily prayers and pennance make us holy and spiritual? We are still sinners. Under Moses, the Pharisees found exception for themselves to get a divorce ie to sin legally whilst for others, they added more laws. That is hypocrisy and what the church is doing against the gay communtity - adding laws against gays which we were not there.

It is the straight community who sinned against the Family with thousands of divorces, and abortions each year, and a red light district in Geylang that covers an entire city. But we don't see our own sins do we? we only see the Pink Dots.

We wear white on the outside, but inside we can never be clean because we are sinners by nature. Sinners do one thing very well. They sin. Once we sin, we are under condemnation and judgement from God. We need Jesus. He is our righteousness, our justification.

We can't be forgiven whether we wear white on the outside or persecute those whom we deemed the worst of sinners. When we follow Saul of Tarsus we may end up killing the innocent and coming against the grace of God. It reflects a self righteousness apart from sanctification through Jesus Christ.

We wear white but we are not clean. The Gay community wear pink reflective of their nature of who they are. It is natural for them, their same sex orientation.

What do we bring to the Communion Table today?

Some say we bring bread and wine made by many. But really, we don't bring anything. We bring only ourselves for we have nothing to offer.

When we say that we bring bread and wine, surely we can't be bringing our own body or blood, for it is carnal and not accepted by God. We will end continually asking for forgiveness for our sins rather than accepting by faith that we are forgiven at the Cross of Calvary.

Yes we have sinned, especially those who pray and seek pennance often. For we have failed to love, to love the weak, the sick, the poor, the outcasts. We love only ourselves.

Jesus was particularly agnst at those learned of scriptures who wore white. It was not because they had failed to love, but because they did not see their own frailty. Instead of humility, they were hypocrites giving others the heavy yoke of the law whilsts being the worst sinners themselves openly divorcing their wives and having sex out of marriage. Jesus sees the people of faith in their white robes as are far worst than the prostitutes.

We have at the Communion table, bread and wine, the feast setup by Jesus. We don't need to BYO to the table. God provides the feast. We are to eat and drink and be merry, for we are partaking in a new body being free from sin, and drinking a life blood that continually cleanses the body when we do sin.

We wear white but are not clean. Gays wear Pink because they are Pink within. Let us be true to ourselves. There is only one person who can wear both White and Pink. He is Jesus Christ of Nazareth. For He is totally righteous, and the pink speaks of His blood shed for our sins.



Let the weak say,
"I am strong" Let the poor say,
 "I am rich" Let the blind say, "I can see"
It's what the Lord has done in me

hosanna To the Lamb that was slain
Hosanna, hosanna Jesus died and rose again  

To the river I will wade
There my sins are washed away
From the heavens' mercy streams
Of the Savior's love for me

I will rise from waters deep
Into the saving arms of God
I will sing salvation songs
Jesus Christ has set me free
