There's a gay couple at your church!?

Dean was talking to a guy who leads worship at a large local church. Somehow they got on the subject of gay people. The guy told Dean that his church will not allow a known gay couple to ATTEND church there. Dean was of course shocked. (I guess if you're in the closet you can go there?)The scary thing is this guy could be talkin' out his butt and not really know how his church handles stuff like that. I really hope that is the case. It did get me thinking; how many churches would do the same? Why would they think that is OK? What would they hope to accomplish by doing that? Make sure their "Christians" aren't corrupted by the big bad gay couple? If we are truly lovers and followers of Christ, we can't act that way cuz' we know Jesus wouldn't. Think about it, would Jesus throw that couple out for fear they would corrupt others? or would He shine, love and die for them? Love is hard. Love takes work, all day, everyday, die, die, die to everything we are uncomfortable "dealing" with, People we don't understand. The words of the poet (yet very flawed & nasty sinner) Kidd Rock, ring in my head "Get in the pit and try to love someone!" Sin is sin. Kick out the porn addicted, the adulterers and the liers and the prideful if you are gonna kick out the gay couple!

Excellent post & point, Carole!

Before we get our feathers all ruffled, we need to remember:
Hate the SIN, LOVE the sinner!

You sound so much like your GranMa.
I guess she taught you well about the love of Christ. I wish you would publish the poem you wrote for her on your blog. I love you, MOM

I agree, Sue. I live in such a hick town that there are still white people who don't want to go to church with black people. I can only imagine if a gay person walked in.

That would sure solve our overcrowding problem at HPC, wouldn't it? J.K.

Great post. That sort of mindset reminds me of the speck and the log story...

You would hope the presence of the Holy Spirit would be so strong in your church that sin, of any kind, would be so uncomnfortable that it would either repent or leave on its own. I remember when I got saved that I was so fearful of sinning and disappointing the Lord, that I made a quick inventory of my sin and made sure to clean house regularly according to the Word, not peoples opinions or cultural preferences. Hey, what if it were a biracial, transgendered, homosexual, from the wrong side of the tracks and poor smelly, too), would they be allowed in? George.
