@LVA I agree 100%, overweight people are absolutely living in sin. However, I don't believe that there are overweight Christians who have not accepted that they are sinning.

@calvinmasterson @LVA Neither Broussard nor I nor anyone defending Scripture is saying homosexuality is beyond redemption! It isn't! No sin is! However, to live as a homosexual and not view it as sinful and something that needs repentance is a real problem. Nothing that can't be fixed, however. God's grace is available to everyone.
I have gay friends and some gay family. I love them with my whole heart and pray for them daily. I am no better than they are, and neither is anyone else. And no one is saying that. Quit twisting our words just like you are twisting Scripture.
@calvinmasterson In what way at all does that verse support slavery? For one thing, slavery was a completely different concept back then, which isn't even worth getting into.. And also, that verse promotes a very noble concept, respecting your master. Many people were slaves back then, and that is how God intended them to deal with their masters, with respect and fear.
@LVA The problem is that open homosexuals do NOT see it as a problem, and do NOT intend to change from it. If a homosexual has denounced homosexuality and is working to rid the sin of his life like I have to every day with numerous sins, THEN, I can believe that person has truly accepted Christ and believes in the God of the Holy Bible.
@calvinmasterson The Bible did not get slavery wrong at all, some backwards people misinterpreted the Bible strategically to fit their slave-owning lifestyles similar to the way people are bending the word now so as to make homosexuality seem moral.
I do not see how anyone can argue with what Broussard said: Living as an open homosexual is open rebellion to God. To live in sin and show no repentance or remorse makes it hard for me to believe that one can TRULY have given their life to Christ. In fact, that is impossible. You cannot Biblically defend homosexuality. Should they be treated with love? Absolutely. Can they become a Christian? Absolutely. Homosexuality is an equal sin to the rest, as Broussard clarified. But to live an openly sinful lifestyle and accepting yourself for it is not okay. Christians view themselves as sinners in need of a savior.
The Bible that you claim to believe in explicitly states on several places that homosexuality is sin. If you doubt the validity of that, then your entire faith rests on an invalid book.
Broussard is 100% correct, in lock-step with the Scripture. If you do not understand what he was saying, I would love to answer in any questions.
