Christians Hate Gays?
The simple answer is no, true Christians do not hate homosexuals. In fact, the Bible says and Jesus taught that Christians are to
love even their "enemies.” Bible believing and practicing
Christians do not agree with the homosexual lifestyle because the Bible
explicitly tells us, or those willing to listen, that it is wrong for two men, or two women to have sex with
each other. In this regard, the question is, what does it mean to
Just because Christians disagree
with the gay lifestyle, does not mean that they "hate" gays. In
fact, Christians are taught to love sinners, yet hate sin. So when Christians
express the biblical view that sex outside of marriage, and/or unnatural sex, is
a sin, they are simply confirming what the Bible plainly states; however, this
does not mean that they, or we, hate those who practice such things.
This is an issue of truth as opposed
to personal preference, prejudice, or "hate."
The fact is that gays and lesbians often want to force their views upon our
whole society, do away with Free Speech, and teach other people’s children what
they think is right or wrong. At the
same time they ignore the fact that everyone is born from a Mother and Father:
including gays and lesbians. In fact, nature itself does not
cooperate with homosexuality, but rather discriminates against gays
by only allowing opposite sex couples to share their DNA and produce offspring
through natural selection.
Another fact that is often minimized or ignored is whether or not gays are able
to change. In this regard, it is a fact that many thousands of former gays and lesbians have
changed and are now straight. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
God’s character is Love and Truth, and loving others means speaking
the truth even when it isn’t popular: John 15:15-22.
Every Christian has had to change his or her ways and ask for God’s
forgiveness and help. Unlike Muslims, who are intolerant of anyone who
isn't like them, including gays, Christians are taught to Love even those who
hate them: Matt. 5:10-16; 22-24; 43-48; 6:19-24; Col. 3:9-14.
with God doesn’t come from conforming to the world but to what pleases God.
And when our lives please God we experience a deep peace that we are told
will never end: Matt. 12:50; John 3:16; 6:37-41; 11:25-26; 14:1-6; Rom. 10:4-13;
2 Cor. 5:17; I Pet. 1:3-5; I John 2:25-3:3; 5:11-13.
