I live close to the largest gay community in the UK, maybe even Europe. Some people from our town go out to that town and protest if there are gay pride marches or gay clubs opening and shout at them or stand there will signs saying it's sin and you're going to hell.

I don't think that is a good thing to do. It will never build bridges, but bring divides. I don't believe people should be practising homosexuals, as I think it is unbiblical, but I don't think it's right to go round shouting at people in judgment. Also what I find rather sad is in the Bible it says that the homosexuals are off to hell, aswell as the lustful and greedy. But I've never seen any of those christians campaigning against gays also campaigning against people who have big houses and lots of money.

What does everyone else think?

Homosexuality has become the "pet sin" of the church these days. We very quickly let them know through our own protests that they are not welcome in our churches. But, the church is supposed to be a hospital for the soul. I don't think we need to send a message that it's "okay to be gay", but we do need to find a way to communicate that Jesus loves them and wants something better for them. It is the same message I would want to give someone who was an alcoholic, drug addict, had anger issues, gluttons (putting myself there), trapped in porn or lust, etc.

We should act to gay's with respect.
Yes I know the Bible is so very clear about gay's and lesbians.
You can read in Romans about this.
Even if we can't agree with how gay's are we can try to show them something how we are in Jesus to thread them with respect.
I always remember in things like this What Would Jesus Do.
You never know how Jesus will work out things.

Man, you really need to be more careful with thread titles, Fundy. For a second, I thought this was going to be confession time. Razz

I agree 100%. Get 'em in a relationship with Jesus Christ and let the Holy Spirit work on how they live. I've often wondered if many church people could care less if people become Christians as long as they act like they are.

Having a big house and lots of cash does not equal greed. It can, but usually doesn't. I have a VERY small house, but make lots of money. Ask the people who know me best and one will find out that I am about as UN-greedy as they come.

As for the fags/homo's/queers (insert name du jour here), The bible speaks clearly of their fate. We shouldn't build walls between them and us, but instead offer them a way out of their sin.

When judging them, I thought of the NotReligion.com daily devotional for yesterday. I will post it below and yall see what you think.....









Judgment Day Someday


August 4, 2008


Key Passage: Matthew 11:20-24


Topic: Other: Judgement


"And you, Capernaum, will you be exalted to heaven? You will be
brought down to Hades. For if the mighty works done in you had been
done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. But I tell you
that it will be more tolerable on the day of judgment for the land of
Sodom than for you."
(Matthew 11:23-24, ESV)

The idea of judgment, specifically God's divine judgment, is not popular. Most people don't like to think that a God of love will judge people for their sins. But the Bible makes it clear this is exactly what will happen.

In today's passage, Jesus is talking about the town of Capernaum and He
makes a reference to the town of Sodom. Sodom was destroyed by God a
long time ago because of its wickedness.
Jesus said if He had done the same miracles in Sodom as He had in
Capernaum, the people of Sodom would have believed in Him and their
city would not have been destroyed. But the people of Capernaum refused
to believe in Jesus or follow Him. As a result, Jesus says that it will
be worse for them on judgment day than for the people of Sodom.

Jesus also seems to teach there will be degrees of punishment on
judgment day. In other words, some people will be judged more harshly
than others, due in part to what they know about Jesus. It appears that
those who don't know much will be better off than those who know a lot
but still reject Him.
So what's the point? The point is God judges sin. The only way to escape from judgment is to believe in Jesus and follow Him.

How will it be for you on judgment day? Will it be better or worse for you than the people of Sodom? Of Capernaum?

Seems like we are all pretty much in agreement. Shouting down any non-Christian is likely going to do little to win them to Christ. We need to treat these people with respect, just like anyone else.

I have thought the same on many an occasion.

That was the same I thought Tall Tyrion after reading the name of this threat.
