If I'm correct you've implied that homosexuality isn't sinful before, yes? My question is what do you make of 1 Cor 6:9-11? Usually people point out that it says "such were some of you" at the end, including the portion addressing "the effeminate." What do you make of this?
the only thing i have said is that God loves everyone, that it’s not anyone’s place to judge, that you can be gay and Christian, and that you should be allowed to live your truth, have your life valued and protected regardless of your sexuality
i know what the text says. and what i also know is that no matter what sin anyone does, they are welcome in the kingdom of God if they have a heart for God.
if you know anything about biblical text, you know 1 Corinthians was written by Paul about how believers ought to live while in Corinth. it’s his word, as he has interpreted instructions by God. that’s his testimony, that’s his perspective
my testimony, my perspective, is that the bible tells us CLEARLY that no matter WHAT YOU DO you are welcome in the kingdom of God
that is all i’m going to say on the topic because i’m tired of having this conversation. i’m tired of Christians taking up the task of memorizing 3 scriptures and focusing on homosexuality so much. i have never had God wake me up in the middle of the night to tell me that he hates Gay people and that they are not allowed in the kingdom. I have had God tell me to love and be loved, and to be an example of Christ by loving and supporting people. that’s it. i’m over this topic and i’m over us having this conversation at the cost of LGBT people who feel excluded by the church
the bible talks about sins like abuse, adultery, violence, etc etc way more than this and yet we still talk about it
God loves everyone. Period. No qualifiers. End of conversation.
