Jesus gave us the two Great Commandments – to love God and to love one another. SO why is there so much hatred, and in the name of Christianity?
Consider this – what if God put certain people into your life to see how YOU treat them. Gay people, trans people, people of another color, people of another religion, etc.
Will you accept them, love them, talk to them? Will you shun them, hate them, avoid them? What would God want you to do? He wants you to love them as your neighbors.
If God creates all, he created these people who know no other truth about their being except for who they are. They may not have an attraction to the opposite sex nor have any feeling about being the person as they were born. They may have been born into a family of a religion unfamiliar with yours but that is all they know. They might be black or brown or red.
I was in a class that explained how when a baby is born, a “wash” comes over them and might confuse chromosomes and perhaps that is how there are legitimate reasons for a person to feel different than what is considered “normal” – so who are we to dismiss them? Gay people and people who feel they are meant to be a different sex – it may be a true chromosome off-balance, so we need to accept them as they feel they are. Do we shun someone who was born without sight, without as arm, or without a foot? Do we shun someone born with an extra toe or any other issue? I have friends with many of these "issues" and they are just normal people to me.
God loves ALL His children, and if their natural being is offensive to you, then just try to accept them. They are people like any of us, with a different preference or color. But we all bleed the same – we are all people of our own beings – similar or very different from each other. But no one is a lesser person because of who they are, if keeping with the laws and rules of society (as a whole, not discriminatory rules directed solely at that type of person – that is not fair).
We are the HUMAN RACE - all people as one race. By the way, Jesus was NOT a white man, having been born in the Middle East area. Jesus promoted love and acceptance.
If you feel they are practicing a sin, think about you and everyone else – everyone sins. Don’t pick and choose the sins YOU decide – your sins might be judged by someone else. None of us is qualified to judge anyone for their sins – that is the job of God and Jesus who sits with Him. You may well be judged for shunning and hating others, instead of showing love and acceptance..
So, treat all people with respect and acceptance; love them for who they are. Do not shun them for their preferences. So, who is judging whom? You would be judged for how you treat them.
