I am a Christian. I work with a gay guy, and I love working with him, he has a great personality.
But according to the Bible, which I am a firm follower of, the homosexual act is sin. People say, well that's not fair, they were born that way. This may be true, I really don't know, but I do know that EVERYONE was born with a sin nature. And being gay is not a sin, the lifestyle is.
What people tend to forget is that it's not the only sin! So is adultry. So is fornication. So is stealing. Lying. Coveting, and even overeating! The last two sins are more "socially acceptable" in church settings but just because it's accepted doesn't mean it's ok.
Our country is in shambles in general. You see that with the high divorce rates, so many abortions, the bad economy. They are the symptoms of a greater problem which I believe is in the church. Most Christians aren't living in Christ!!! We are so lukewarm, we are judgemental and unloving. We state the problem, but we don't offer solutions. We have accepted Christ without "counting the cost". We have not taken up our cross and followed Him. We live easy lives and sit in judgement of others while we ourselves have not taken the time to KNOW our Lord and become like Him.
My point of my ramblings was that being gay is not sin, but yes, living that lifestyle is. But it's not the only one and Christians forget that. We Christians need to get our act together instead of just expecting the rest of the world to.
Also, a lot of people, including Christians think that because I'm straight I can date whoever I want. This is not true. It has to be another Christian, and more than that, because I am following God it has to be someone I know He truly approves of for me. As everything we do should be for the glory of God.
