The Bible never truly mentioned being gay as a sin like some right wing Christians claim.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11 (CSB)
9 Don’t you know that the unrighteous will not inherit God’s kingdom? Do not be deceived: No sexually immoral people, idolaters, adulterers, or males who have sex with males,
10 no thieves, greedy people, drunkards, verbally abusive people, or swindlers will inherit God’s kingdom.
11 And some of you used to be like this. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
There is one thing that will keep a person from entering God’s kingdom(heaven) and that’s unforgiven sin. But if we turn from our wicked ways(repent) and have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, we can receive God’s mercy.
John 3:16 (CSB)
“For God loved the world in this way: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
I've never understood why these straight men concern themselves with the nocturnal activities of other men so much. I mean, truly, if you're straight, shouldn't another man getting plowed in the butt be the last thing on your mind? I've yet to grasp this concept.
What you believe is your business and yours alone. If your faith tells you homosexuality is a sin, fine. Don't be gay. However, don't go berating Bob and Barry down the street. That is your faith, not theirs. A perfect example is mi madrina Dalia. She is a devout Christian and personally considers same-sex relations to be sinful. However, she has never cast out nor mistreated any of the queer people in her family. She loves them dearly and welcomes them with open arms. She understands that her faith is no one's business but her own. I do wish, and hope, others could understand this.
Jesus said this to His disciples after his resurrection from the grave:
Mark 16:15-16 (CSB)
15 Then he said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16 “Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
If people believe the gospel they will be saved, but they must first hear/see it. And how can they hear/see the gospel without a preacher/evangelist/missionary/pastor/believer sharing it as it was once shared with them? God wants all to be saved from His own wrath in hell.
2 Peter 3:9 (CSB)
The Lord does not delay his promise, as some understand delay, but is patient with you, not wanting any to perish but all to come to repentance.
