This is an amazing and well written article, but your spirituality is a little misguided. Jesus tells us to love one another and to gently correct our brothers who have gone astray. We are responsible for helping each other live out God's love. And if one of my friends or brothers is gay I would take the time to help them see that sort of behavior is one of the things that God hates the most. I believe the scriptures say God "detests homosexuality." With this being said, we can still love the person and hopefully help them see, that this is not part of God's plan. just like we should help those friends who are thinking or have cheated on a spouse.
So my question to this community would be: would you allow a friend to repeatedly cheat on a spouse? Would you allow a friend to repeatedly drink and drive? Would you allow a friend to repeatedly steal from people? Would it be ok for a 40 year to be "in love" with a 15 year old? All these things are wrong and as Christians we are to hold each other accountable. I feel we are supposed to help correct their errors just as they would ours and then support each other in living our lives together under God's plan. But if someone refuses to repent, the bible is very clear about what comes next. So although people who choose to be gay, and yes it is a choice, are sinning, they can choose not to act on those feelings. Just like an adult can choose not to act his/her feelings for a minor. Just as a drug addict can choose to get help and not abuse a substance. We are all sinful and are called to repent. But if you willfully choose to disobey then that is between you and God, and hopefully those who "love" you like Jesus will help you see why your ways are contrary to God's will.
So here's my last question: How would you treat your friend who cheats on their spouse over and over again, and this person doesn't think it's wrong because they are in love?
It's one thing to sin, but to keep doing it and not feel it's wrong because you are in "love" is not justification. We are God's hands and feet, and should bring the good news to all need to hear it. Yes we should do it the right way, not with anger or hate, but with gentle corrections, however if the person will not repent and bringing the church to them doesn't help, then we will have to leave them behind and yes they will be judged, not by us, but by the fire that will follow.
As for me and my house we will serve the Lord!
