Homosexuality

Here goes.  This is sparked because someone compared gay rights to segregation, slavery, and civil rights.  There are certain people that would find that highly offensive.  Maybe when gays are being sold into slavery and considered three-fifths of a person...no.  Not even then.  It is not ok to be gay.  It is sin like any other sin.  Just because it has become socially acceptable doesn't make it ok.  I don't condemn it, but I don't condone it either.  You can repent, pray for forgiveness, and God will show you mercy.  Jesus loves EVERYONE.  That doesn't make it ok to sin.  About a year ago I learned that there are "gay" churches.  Perhaps we should allow murderers, adulterers, and those addicted to child pornography to worship in their own church also.  No.  That's not how it works kids.  Social acceptance doesn't make sin ok.  And for crying out loud, the Bible is the living word of God.  It is adaptive, but that doesn't mean that it changes as the world changes.  Take "eye for an eye" for example.  It's an old saying that became obsolete after the second covenant was made between God and us.  The Bible doesn't say if everyone starts accepting homosexuality, you can be gay and still get into heaven.  You can't believe in the Bible and believe it is flawed at the same time just because it was written humans.  It is flawless because it was written by instruction from the Holy Spirit.  Yes, I have gay friends and gay family members, and I love them as much as I love my own family.
