I think God cares what's in our heart. Do we love his son and do we accept his free gift of salvation. If that's our framework I think the rest is mostly trivial.

There are areas in both the old and new testiment of the Bible that make it clear that homosexuality is considered a sin. I suppose if your a fag but dont practice what you feel you might not be sinning but I have yet to find that distinction. As far as someone in the church being gay or a child molester, rapist, muderer, adultrist, fornicator, worshiper of idols, and so on I dont believe that they can be accepted with the presumption they can continue to live the lifestyle that is considered sinful.
We as chicken shit sheep have been overrun by the bullshit political correctness syndrome and have become unable to say we dont accept things out of fear of reprisal from the minority or the fear we will look out dated or un cool. This has overflowed to the point that churches are putting pacticing sinners in a place of authority with a complete disregard to the foundation of what the bible teaches.















Political correct is for chicken shit, candy ass, anti American, terrorist loving, French asslicking, foriegn oil loving, communistict liberal shit bags.

There are many more sins than just homosexuality but I believe that was the topic of the sermon. As to the sermon it was O.K. I wasn,t blown away, he did point out the fact that the according to the bible homsexuality is a sin. However it was a little to soft soaped over for my tastes. I don't know that he would handle sins such as child molesting, rape, murder, or other sins with the same kid glove political correctness as he did with homosexuality. I'am not sure he would welcome these people knowing they are actively following that life style and tell them we can work through this come on over to my house and baby sit or visit my wife while I'm not there.
Any ways it's a sermon that wouldn't hurt anyone to listen to.

I finally got around to listening to it. I'm pretty much in agreement with him on the subject.

He probably would invite the people to his house. He's one of those kinds of pastors. I agree that it may have been some what PC, but It's also the truth. The important thing is that they stick to the fact that it is a Sin And that they need to let God help them with it. That simple fact is what makes me think that it's not Completely PC. I can honestly say that if we as sinners don't try and change our ways then being "saved" means nothing at all to us. We're just looking after our selves and being "fire proof" Which is not the intent of Jesus's Message. This is the same for them. As long as they are trying to be like Jesus, it doesn't matter.

Yeah, I thought so Too.
