That’s right, I said it. This post is aimed at fellow Christians.
I think one of my biggest pet peeves about the Christian church, is how they view “sinners.” More specifically, homosexuals.
Let me start by saying this: I am a Christian, and I believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that homosexuality is 100% undeniably wrong. That being said, I also believe that Christians who condemn unbelieving homosexuals are also 100% wrong.
Christians are directed in the Bible to “Go make disciples of all Nations…” and so on. We are also obligated, by virtue of Christs great gift to us, to live according to His commandments. Unbelievers have no such obligation. The Bible says that we were enslaved to sin before we were saved. That means we couldn’t help it. There was no way for us to stop sinning. When Christ came into our lives, He changed all that.
When we are dealing with sinners (which, by the way, we all are) who aren’t believers, we have no business telling them how they should live. They are SINNERS without the power of the Holy Spirit to overcome sin. Jesus never tried to get heathens to change their ways, and neither should we. If they want to be homosexual, LET THEM! But love them. And try to lead them to Christ. Remember, we came to Christ just as we were, don’t try to clean up the other unbelievers before they can come to Him… it won’t work.
So this is unorganized rambling, but here’s the sum of what I want to say. If you are a believer in Christ, and you hate homosexuals (or any other type of sinner), get over yourself. You’re worse than they are, I promise.
