Discover Ministry Briefing! --> The Best Way To Keep "In The Know"!
Daphne Daly writes:
The fact is that yes – the Bible does say that it is wrong for two people of the same sex to be together. However, it also says that it’s wrong to take the Lord’s name in vain. The Bible is very clear on what is sin is and what sin isn’t. It is also clear that there are no levels of sin. If someone commits murder, engages in sex outside of marriage or even lashes out in anger – it is all the same. Sin is sin. The Bible clearly states that Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead for our sin. He asks for very little in return. He has asked us to be Born Again. Once we have become Born Again, we are “covered by the blood” as it states. We are washed clean in his eyes. It is pretty cut and dry without religion to jumble it up… It takes love, tolerance and acceptance for people to find their path. It is certainly not our place to judge anyone because of who they have sex with any more than it is our place to judge someone for any other decision they make. If a gay couple were to sit down next to me in church holding hands, I would just be glad they were there to hear a good word. I would open my arms to welcome them just as I would anyone else. Married or not, it is none of my business. I have yet to see any picketing going on about a man and woman living together before marriage- and that is sin, isn’t it?
