It seems like more and more Christians today (and even some Catholics) feel like there's nothing wrong with same-sex "marriage" or homosexual actions. I am posting this in "non-Catholic religions" because this view seems to be growing among protestants and I have many protestant friends.
Some "Christians" will even go as far as to say that Jesus would endorse homosexuality. When I bring up New Testament bible verses like 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 they usually say something like: "What trash! Jesus would never say that!"
Their arguments are usually "God is love and wants us to love each other so we should let everyone love everyone equally." Either they say this or say that Jesus' death was enough to save you even when you have no intention of turning away from sexual sins.
How can I convince people that Jesus would regard homosexual actions as sins?
How can I defend the Church's views on marriage and homosexuality if I get in a position where I feel I have to defend it against someone I know while still being loving to them? I need a persuasive reason why homosexuality and Christianity are not compatible.
I believe it is important to gently lead others away from sin and I believe it is a grievous action when people who should know better like "Christians" intentionally lead others into sin, especially when they are sexual sins. Some "Christians" will say that "telling people what is and what is not a sin is judging."
Also if anyone has a non-religious argument to why marriage is between a man and a woman this would be helpful. And I think it is very important to still be loving when discussing matters like this with people who do not agree.
