My Friend is a Homosexual
Dear Brother Ron
A person's sexual preference
has nothing to do with the fate of their soul. Your
belief that it does shows that you are a dogmatist
who follows the teachings of men rather than the
teachings of Jesus. Jesus gave us two commandments:
Matthew 22:35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, Matthew 22:36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Matthew 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. Matthew 22:38 This is the first and great commandment. Matthew 22:39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Matthew 22:40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
I don't see a lot of fine print there. I don't see "love thy neighbor except .......". I don't see "love thy neighbor if they agree to .....". Religious organizations put the conditions on the words of Jesus. If you are following these conditions, then you are following organizational dogma. This makes you a dogmatist, not a disciple. Your friends has already rejected the dogma. If you continue to espouse it over the words of Jesus, he will reject you as well.
