I just want to add -

Just because Christians do not condone Homosexual behavior does not mean we hate Homosexuals. It's the behavior we can't condone not the person.

Just as many do not agree with Christianity. It doesn't mean that they hate Christians, just don't agree with what they believe.

I realize that many out there who claim to be Christian also have hate in their heart for certain individuals in society, Homosexuals being one. Please do not view this as an example of God, it is not. Hate is NOT a Christian characteristic. Judgemental is NOT a Christian characteristic. God is about love, acceptance and forgiveness, but you must first love and accept him. He waits for us not the other way around.

God is not accepting of sin. Christians do not judge sin. God has already done that. You are correct, Christians love homosexuals but hate the sin of homosexuality. The act is seperate from the person.

If your God would condemn millions of Homosexual people to lives without love and companionship, then I certainly wouldn't want any part of such a deity. I suppose that is why I am not a Christian and never will be.

Billy Graham once was asked how many of the 10 comandments he had broken and he replied ALL OF THEM because if you brake one commandment you have broken them all. Homosexualty is not one of the commandments but... there is not one sin worse then any other sin!!! I am sure you dont run around and preach to poloticians "thou shall not lie" and "Your going to hell if you dont stop lieing" and im sure that you dont stand on the corner and yell "God hates Lies" or hold signs at funnerals either so why pick homosexuals for a target? there sin is no greater then our own sin!!!

Its like patience said above, "If your God would condemn millions of Homosexual people to lives without love and companionship, then I certainly wouldn't want any part of such a deity. I suppose that is why I am not a Christian and never will be."

there is no "GOOD NEWS" and no love in pointing fingers and jugdeing others... this is one of the many additudes that make me ashamed to be a chirstian and want to find a new religion because God knows we have lost the OLD TIME RELIGION of love and peace!!! the only thing that keeps me a chirstian is that GOD Loves Me for me and loves everything He created Just the way He created it and Jesus meets us where we are at and doesnot make us jump thourgh hoops like the so called Churches of today!!! Jesus would not be allowed to come in to the churches around here so i dont go either!! If my LORD cant go then i want no part of it, i would rather be in a gay bar with the outcased then to be in church without God!!! God is welcome in the bars more readily then the church!!!! whats wrong with this picture?

Thanks Freebubbles2, well said!

As I once said, it is all about love, not dogma. You have spoken with love and compassion. You are being true to the teachings of Jesus and that is all he asked of us - to follow him.

Bless you!

your welcome!!! I guess i am still touchy about slaming other who are different. my time at the reservation school open my eyes to a lot of things that i never thought about before!!! when i was in high school i wanted to fit in so bad and to have a "REAL FAMILY" that i did every such job at the church and was there 24-7-365 i thought i fit in and every one loved me for me but when i moved to be a "missionary" and came back after almost a year of flat hell i learned real quick that the hell i went through out there was the same hell i came back to but it hurt more because i had know those people my whole life and they were and are just as bad as the people that i left on the "mission field"!!! the so called chirstians that are sopost to strife for peace and love one another where only there to impress others and look good!!! I dont see myself going back to church in my life time because of that. I miss church the way I thought it should be , the way it was ment to be... and its so sad because i think God misses it too!!!

I hope you can find a good church where the teachings are based on love. Do you have a Metropolitan Community Church near you? You would find love and genuine kindness there. Look up your phone book. It is a church which was started some years ago for Gay people and others who are outcasts from society. They accept EVERYBODY and here in Australia they are very loving congregations.

Hating what harms others is part of love. God accepts every person who serves Him. If you serve sin then you do not serve God. You become a servant of whomever you choose to obey. If you serve sin then you are a servant of Satan. If you serve righteousness then you are a servant of God. A servant always abides in the house of his master. God is in Heaven and Satan is destined for Hell. Your choice. I speak about homosexuality because it is in the forefront of debate in our society. It threatens marriage through attempts to equate homosexual relationships as equal to Holy Matrimony. I am defending God and marriage by attacking homosexuality.I do not attack homosexuals as people. I want homosexuals to repent and come to Christ.That is loving them. Wanting to accept the sin that kills them is hate.
