Personally I do not approve of there error
Their "Error"? YOU do not approve? It isn't up to you to "approve" - or to judge.
Just like it isn't up to me to "approve" of your post or thoughts, or to judge you. But since you opened the door, I'm coming in and speaking my mind
It is the way they are - were born - BEGOTTEN and MADE. It's not up to you to dictate their lives (or anyone's), nor is it the pastor's.
the last thing I would ever want to see is there soul's doomed for an error of the flesh which will probably be put right once they pass over
Well isn't that generous of you.
a pastor should seek after them, yes he must prevent sickness from a lost sheep killing the flock but that is isolate not give to evil making
the devil stronger,
So, LGBTQ people are "sick" and somehow a danger that is contagious and might kill the whole flock?
I am however all for trying to convince gay's to live in accordance with the scripture
To "convince" them?
Like, if your kid is into music and art, and blood makes him puke you would have to "convince" him to be a a "doctor" instead (or worse, a lawyer) -
or join the military - or be an NFL star and subject himself to brain damage because...why? Because YOU are? Because that's what "men" do? Because
he might not become affluent and live in the correct zip code if he strives to be a musician and artist?
Or your daughter is not into fashion and is fine with no makeup, but she still needs to be "convinced" to be a model, stop eating, and walk the runway
and become an actress?
Do you even hear yourself?
Good lord I hope you are not a parent.
hell and fire sermons are all well and good in there time and place
No. Just....no. They are not
well and good. EVER - in ANY time, or ANY place.
but the flock belong to christ the good shepherd and leaving the sick lamb for the lion is not in his word's.
May he show mercy on your SHAMEFUL shaming, denigrating, controlling, judgmental self-righteousness over others.
I know I 'cherry-picked' your response, and you might well be offended by my pointing out the hypocrisy of your words, because you did say the pastor
is wrong and not to 'throw them' to your imagined boogey man - but the reasoning behind your thoughts - that others who are different are "sick" is
Hope you think it over.
