The Bible says that ‘lifestyle’ is wrong…that is enough for me. That in itsself makes it morally wrong. They cannot possibly be following God truthfully if they remain in that ‘lifestyle’.
I know enough about thier ‘group’ to know it is wrong. See above.
I respect them as a person…but not thier ‘lifestyle’. I refuse to accept the sin, as so many ppl seem to.
Pass judgement on me if you’d like…does that mean you are sin free? Are you not familiar with this Passage? --> let him who is without sin cast the first stone.
[quote=otm]Obviously you know nothing whatsoever about this group, and have made a judgement that they are not faithful to the doctrines and moral teaching of the ?Church.
You might want to investigate and find out before you pass judgement; and then you might want to use some language that is perhaps more Christian.
Assuming for the moment that they may be making wrong moral choices, both our current pope and the last one have said forcefully that homosexuals are to be treated as any individual would - with respect. Respect, as those two popes have said, does not mean approval of an immoral lifestyle.
Your language betrays an attitude of anything but respect for them as human beings; and it further betrays a lack of understanding that as baptized individuals, they are members of the Body of Christ just as you are - and the fact that they may be sinners most likely puts them in the same category as you - also a sinner. Or by your post are we to presume that you are sin free? I seem to recall something is Scripture that says “let him who is without sin cast the first stone”. Perhaps you are unfamiliar with that passage?
