    Maybe it is the language barrier, but for whatever reason, you don't get what I am saying most of the time. But, when you do, you twist it.

    I'm done with this. I hope you understand what that means.

    I know the obvious, but a thread on the internet isn't justification for ungrace.

    Also if you're taking what I'm saying personally, when I'm directing my comments at no-one in particular, you're responding to some inner conviction of your own.

    It seems that everyone is in agreement that homosexuality is a sin. I'm a sinner too, still struggling with a cigarette addiction. I do feal bad that many who do practice homosexuality are not getting the same help and support as I do for my addiction. It would be nice to find a compassionate way to help them reclaim Gods plan for them.

    The last 40 years? If that were the case, there would have been no need for the laws of the OT or the grace of Christ. Morality has been corrupted and sin 'tolerated' by man since the fall - just in different ways at different times. But it has always and will always, until the end of times, be that way, unfortunately.

    Trying to quit smoking is very hard, I know - currently trying (once again) to stop smoking.

    Few people would argue against homosexual sex being sin (they are there though), but I find that often those claiming to be trying to help really don't know how [or truly care to, for some]. Which applies to the majority of sins, obviously, and seems to simply be human nature in a way. Just an observation I have made in the last few years. Frankly, I am not even sure how anyone could actually help, apart from Christ of course.

    This is a HUGE point on the topic, and one that's almost universally overlooked. The homosexual community's biggest sin is not their sexual inclination. Far from it . . . it's their pride.

    Pride is what gets you in trouble with God in the end. It's easy to overcome sexual deviancy, but it's much harder to overcome the pride you've been driven to by an in-compassionate society.

    Is it all their fault? Absolutely not.

    The Christian community has to take some responsibility for coming down on them so hard, and driving them towards this prideful rebellion that's hard enough to come back from I'm afraid it could lead to the inevitable downfall of some of them.

    We have contributed to making them feel alienated and cut off from God.

    Just some of my thoughts.

    I absolutely agree. We should never let our drive for perfection get in way of our kindness and grace towards others. Though on the same hand we need to stay firm in the truth.
