    YES, Margaret! How refreshing to hear another sister who believes the same as I do. I have numerous Christian gay friends. It is simply unfathomable to me that Jesus would reject these men and women, who wholeheartedly believe Jesus died for them, at the gates to heaven because the way they loved others was wrong. That is so deeply the antithesis of Jesus’ message, which can be summed up as, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,”But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, 5 even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved” “not a result of works, so that no one may boast.” (Romans 3:23; Ephesians 2:4-5 and 9).

    Someone taught me an important lesson on how to read the Bible. There are two ways to read it, as an attorney trying to discredit or as a judge, realizing it is written by God and has absolute authority. Homosexuality is mentioned as sin in the Bible atleast 13 times. Perhaps God’s plan in placing you in this person’s life is to teach them about God’s grace and mercy. The good news is, we are saved by our faith and not by our works! We can be forgiven for our sins if we have faith and repent. We choose to turn away from sin because it honors God. Of course we fail everyday, there was only one sinless man. I pray that God would give you wisdom and courage to shine a light in this person’s life. I can’t imagine a better way to love someone than by saving their soul and giving them the peace that surpasses understanding. God bless you and keep you. From one wretched, undeserving soul to another, please don’t give up on God’s word

    Thank you!!! Jesus taught us to love everyone, and not once did he actually mention homosexuality, but he spent a great deal of time calling out the Pharisees. I think we need to spend more time examining our own souls than the shelves at Target. My daughter’s BFF is gay, and he came over to my house the other day wearing a t-shirt that said, “Virginity rocks!” on it. I think she needs more friends like him, and he knows I adore him. Why would that change just because he discovered he was gay? If this attraction is indeed a sin (and I’m not sure I believe that anyone BECAUSE of my studies of scripture), he is certainly not the only sinner Jesus died for. My mirror tells me that every day. Meditate on it, sisters, please.
