Or do you* not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be misled. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor pedophiles, nor homosexuals, nor the greedy, nor thieves, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. And some of you* were these, but you* were bathed, but you* were sanctified, but you* were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and in the Spirit of our God. (1 Corinthians 6:9-11) MLV.
In class yesterday in my Ethics class, we were discussing, an article that talks of how we as Christians as a whole condemn homosexuality. And yes rightfully so, but sometimes we go to the point that we condemn the individual including the act. Even if someone is in the act of homosexuality, or are living as a homosexual, we still have a responsibility to at least try to get a sit down with them to guide them to the way. If they refuse, than we have no choice but to clean the dust off our hands and kick the dirt from our feet. Ok, brother Cleary how do we go about doing that? In love, gentleness and, kindness. Those who practice such things will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven. We are not gate keepers, we are servants of God and we are responsible to reach out to all men.
We are not to compromise, with those who practice such things. But we do need to reach out to all men , for God says He desires all men to repent, that none should perish.
Love is what separates us from the world.
God is good, I love you all
