The news is ripe with stories about Christians being offended by the rainbow flag or the LGBTs being offended by Christians. At its most basic level, the rainbow flag and the cross are competing ideologies. Ideology is a system of ideas that forms the basis of economic or political theory and policy. As Christians, we are not saved by ideology and we honestly don’t need a flag or a flashy brand to remind us of who we are; instead, our symbol is love. There are not many who came to know the love of God by being shamed and dragged to the cross. Don’t get twisted up about the rainbow flag and what society says it stands for; instead, love your neighbor as yourself and leave the renovations of the heart to God.
