Have it God’s Way!

cartoon-burger-pictures-13706-hd-wallpapersBurger King went off the deep end. They came out with a gay pride whopper. The wrapper of the Pride whopper said- “We are all the same inside.” I kid you not. Watch the You-tube commercial, which shows the un-informed and brain dead uttering things like, “It’s about time.” and “I feel so loved.”

Isn’t that just ducky. Let’s all hold hands and dance around the campfire, singing “We are the world!”

I thought it was an odd message for a burger joint that declares, “Have it your way.” Whoppers are NOT the same on the inside. Hold the pickles, hold the lettuce, etc. Every burger is supposedly unique. But, I understand what they’re trying to do; jump on the gay pride band wagon, try to bring in the cash.

And, you know what? Technically they’re right. We’re all the same on the inside, made up of blood and guts (a fantastic medical description of human beings.)

But, let’s look at the truth. Let’s put God in the picture.

Yes, we are all the same on the inside. We’re all sinners. Romans 3:23 “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. . .”

But the choices we make about our sinning brings an inner difference.

The Christian chooses to trust Jesus for forgiveness, thereby becoming a new Creation.  2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”

The non-Christian seeks something else. They do it their way. Maybe doing good deeds to gain God’s favor. Maybe ignoring their sinfulness. Maybe shaking a fist at Heaven an saying, “Leave me alone!”

So, we are NO LONGER the same on the inside. One person still lives in their sin. The other has found forgiveness.

Another place where the burger message is wrong is this. The next step for the Christian (After salvation) is obedience to God. A Christian believes the Bible is God’s written word, which tells us how we should live AND how we should not live. There is no, “I have my rights.” There is no,”I know best.”

Does this mean a Christian is perfect because they follow God’s book? Hahahahahahahaha. Sorry. That was a funny one. Man oh man, I am farrrrrrr from perfect. I sin. I don’t always follow the book. I make mistakes. I mess up. Sometimes I do it unknowingly. Sometimes, like a spoiled child, I want my own way. But, when I come to my senses, I turn to a God who forgives me.

Some people live their lives, fighting for freedom from God’s rule, demanding they know what is best.

Burger King. You had it right/You had it wrong. Stay in the burger business and stop trying to make political statements.

We are all the same on the inside. . .Sinners, but it’s what we do about our sin that makes the difference.

The question each person must ask- Do you want to have it your way, or God’s way?
