Gay Believers

This is an extremely important topic because it directly affects millions of people and their relationship with Yahuah. The largest error in conservative Christianity is its condemnation of this segment of the population, which is estimated to be about 10% including both those out and closeted. As believers in the Messiah, our biggest duty in this world is bringing others to the Messiah. And the worst thing we can do is turn others away from the Messiah. Yet, this is exactly what a large percentage of the religious population end up doing, through condemnation, persecution, ridicule and harassment, all "in the name of Elohim".

What should you do?

If you are one of the Christians who fit the description above, think about all the times that you, whether in person or online, told a gay person that Elohim hates him or her, or that they are going to hell. Think if even just one of those people you verbally persecuted had a low enough self esteem or weak faith to begin with, that they took what you said to heart and spent the rest of their life refusing to have anything to do with Yahusha or our Father, believing that its pointless because they were already condemned. You then just played a major role in the loss of that soul.

Do you think that in any way your condemnation would really help them? Do you think they've never heard that in some form in the past? Now on the other hand, instead of judging or persecuting an unsaved gay person, what would happen if you encouraged them to build a relationship with our Elohim and our Messiah? By your warm encouragement and brotherly love this person could decide to take steps to change their lifestyle or at least try to change their lifestyle. And even if they are unable to they would at least now have a relationship with our them which is most important, and by accepting Yahusha's death for their sins, be eligible for grace. You have then just helped to save a soul.

And to gay people.. Never let anything that anyone says to you in this life turn you from or keep you from your Creator or your Messiah. Don't let anyone cost you your soul. We are ALL sinners in this world so anyone who condemns you for your lifestyle is a hypocrite and their words mean nothing. And being all sinners we are ALL eligible for redemption as long as we strive to do the Father's will and firmlybelieve that Yahusha died for the transgressions that we have not been able to overcome.
