It’s a slippery slope. I’m not saying it’s not a sin as I said I don’t know but the couple of references in the Old Testament are on par with eating shellfish and working on the sabbath.
We pretty much allow both of those with an understanding of it being Old Testament teaching and not entirely relevant to today. Or at the very least not questionable to ones salvation.
Where do we draw that line? Scripture doesn’t really so we’ve done so ourselves? Let go what we don’t think is relevant and held onto what we think is? That’s very subjective.
Christ kept the Sabbath... Do you think we should ignore how God/Jesus acted while on earth? Wasn't there a huge WWJD movement that started not too far back in history? I think that is a great question to ask.
But you still haven't answered my question...which is the real topic.
Actually I replied in length if you scroll back but I’ll repost;
Christ’s image, the image of God reflects and represents all of us. We are all born in the image of God without exception. All born equal under His Grace.
We are not born perfect nor without flaw but on even ground in the eyes of Our Father. By that token we are judged, as we all will be based on our measure and rod we use against others.
How harshly we judge others will be the rod used to judge us.
Forgiveness is Gods language and it has no bounds for its based on love and Gods love is limitless so it’s without fear.
So it’s not in fear that I reserve my judgement of others but in humility of how far I fall in so many ways.
I don’t know if being gay is wrong. But it doesn’t change my treatment of any gay person which is always with love nor does it change Jesus’ message to them which is He loves them.
What ever transpires between their relationship is theirs. It’s not mine to judge or pick apart. The message of the Gospel doesn’t suffer because of it. He loves them, gay or not. The messsage doesn’t change nor the sacrifice on the cross.
I’ll let the good Lord be the condemer and judge because I’m not qualified.
