mod_rewrite and homosexual Christians

Just doing some tweaking and cleaning in the background, and am also trying to figure out mod_rewrite and trailing slashes with the help of the ultimate mod_rewrite guide.

Via Doug, a letter from a gay Christian, and the response. Personally, I am perfectly willing to embrace gay and lesbian church members as fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, saved by the Savior’s sacrifice and washed clean by the blood — but that doesn’t change that the Word of God calls homosexuality a sin, in Old and New Testaments alike.

Standing on the pulpit and denouncing homosexuals to the flames of hell is NOT the solution, however. Meaningful dialogue and loving counseling are called for, to minister to people who are just as much participants in the Body as are fellow believers of normal sexual orientation.

    Amen, Pau.

    “Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters not adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.” – 1 Corinthians 6:9b-10 (emphasis mine)

    My interpretation is that being homosexual is not wrong. It is the practice that Biblical evidence (and interpretation) speaks against. And I agree that love, not hate or fear, has greater potential to bring gay people to knowing the love of Christ.

    I think the church generally pays far too much attention to homosexuality while ignoring other sexual sins. Gay or straight, we all struggle with sexual temptation and sin, but we choose to demonize homosexuals while ignoring the adultery and divorce within the church.
