Love the Sinner not the Sin
I always think its a sad thing when you see hate messages like God hates Gays. It's a sad thing. My bible doesn't say anything of the sort. Yes it states that homosexuality is a sin yet no where does it state that God hates homosexuals. In fact the bible states we are supposed to love: love your enemy; love your neighbor; and so on. In fact when there was women who was to be stoned for adultury at one point and people asked jesus for advice he states "Let he without sin throw the first stone." And so she was saved. Jesus came to save the sinners. All of us are sinners in some way. It's part of being human. We shouldn't be standing around judging others does it not say "You will be judged as you judge." Instead we should be doing self examination not busy pointing fingers. We should show love and compassion and try to live upright lives as christians not being hate mongers. If someone is faltering down the path of Darkness we should be praying for their salvation not ourselves opening our hearts to darkness by hating. So instead of spreading hate and discontent and making Chrisitanity look bad by not living as we should we should spread love and compassion. By giving into hatred we are only falling off the path of rightousness.
