God loves the Homosexual

I read today that Ray Boltz a well known Contemporary Christian Artist from the 70's and 80's who has "come out". Read about it here.

This tends to be a hot issue with people taking wildly opposing views. Much of the rhetoric I have experienced in my church life writes anyone with any association to homosexuality as hell fodder. I come from the place that we are all sinners in need of God's grace every day. But I cannot adhere to the view that homosexuality is not a sin.

It would appear that Ray Boltz is comfortable to accept and embrace his homosexuality alongside his Christian faith. I just cannot quite go along with that.

However I would encourage you to watch a video of David talking about his journey and struggles here. I thought it was amazing.

NOTE: I know even mentioning this will attract wildly differing reactions. Please remember that this blog is personal to me and does not necessarily reflect the views of MKCC or its leadership.

God loves every one of us but not the sin of sodomy We were created to multiply on the earth having sex with the same sex will make this impossible that is why he gave men and women different parts to achieve this we are suppose to be more intelligent than other animals but we are not, dogs and cats do not have sex with the same sex Having sex with the same sex is going against the creator Jesus loves them they just have to repent and turn awy from the sin of sodomy which society accepts and call sexual preference god helpus

I feel sorry for individuals who embrace this habit it is such an unnatural form of sex that does not cause happiness there is a difference between the anus and the vagina both have different functions
However Jesus loves us and will forgive us if we repent and turn away from this sin/iniquity

i am relieved that not all churches will reflect these views That the body of Christ knows if members are sick with the sin of sodomy to pray for them for deliverance his grace is sufficient for us god loves us his will is that none should perish
