Christians and Love for the LGBT

I’ve been hearing a lot of reports on the news lately regarding the lgbt community and hatred.  I don’t condone gay marriage, but I believe that what other people do is none of my business.  Yes, God takes a strong stance against gay acts in the Bible, but what people do is between them and God.  God gave us free will, and what we chose to do with it is our decision.  The Bible also tells us not to judge others.  According to the Bible, we will be judged according to how we judge others.

There are those who say that legalizing gay marriage will only lead to catastrophe.  While this may or may not be true, it’s all in Gods hands.  Perhaps catastrophe is a part of Gods plans.  Does allowing gay people to marry really take away from the sanctity of marriage?  How much sanctity  does marriage have  as a whole these days with all the cheating and divorces anyway?  A marriage between a man and a woman can still be seen as sacred even if gays are allowed to marry too.

The Bible’s biggest commandment is to love one another.  This includes people of all sexual orientations and preferences.  Jesus never hated anyone when he walked the earth, and we shouldn’t either.  No matter who we are, we are all children of God.  We all sin, and all sin is equal in Gods eyes.  Hate the sin but don’t hate the sinner.
