At a Las Vegas concert, Lady Gaga ripped on Vice President Mike Pence because his wife works at a Christian school that does not allow gay students and requires employees to affirm a biblical view of marriage. Imagine! A Christian school that teaches what the Bible says.
Yet Lady Gaga said, “You are the worst representation of what it means to be a Christian. I am a Christian woman. And what I do know about Christianity is that we bear no prejudice and everybody is welcome.”
So Lady Gaga says she’s a Christian. Let’s ignore that she’s hardly ever dressed, she blasphemes God, and her music and videos are raunchy. Setting that aside (please), Lady Gaga does not meet her own standard of Christianity.
She said, “We bear no prejudice and everybody is welcome.” Except for Mike Pence, his wife, and everyone who believes as they do, right? Romans 2:1 says, “For in passing judgment on another you condemn yourself, because you, the judge, practice the very same things.”
Plenty of people came to Jesus and claimed to be children of God. Jesus said, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples. Everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin” (John 8:31, 34). When the people argued, Jesus said, “Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear my word. You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires” (John 8:43-44).
So who is a Christian? Everyone who believes the word of Christ. And whoever believes will do what He said in the Bible (John 14:15), when we understand the text.
