If gay christians came to your church what would your church do?

Would the gay people be asked to leave?

Would they be ignored?

Would they be welcomed in love?

Would they be interrogated?

Would they be fellowshipped with?

undying thread...

for me? i will welcome them... they deserve heaven too...:)

Relevant topic, Ferdz.... =)  

To answer the question, we have a member that is no longer a practicing homosexual....and we love him.  No one treats him rudely or disrespectful....and he is very active in church life.  He is not effeminate, but his orientation is clearly homosexual. Just had confirmed a young adult that used to attend one of our Sister Churches is a practicing lesbian (stud) and she is a burden on my heart....people love her and do not shun her, but how to approach and speak to the lifestyle while not cutting off ties is a prayerful balance.  Please keep her and her family in prayer.

Huh?   You definitely misunderstood....=)

What I am saying is that ministering to a person active in the in the gay lifestyle without them feeling they don't belong is a delicate balance.  We do have the system and most importantly the relationships in place....and she knows we love her unconditionally.   She comes to different events--just attended a baby shower--and knows that she has a home is us.  

I also have worked professionally with homosexual youth--but I do appreciate your concern. I hope that better clarifies it for you.

Apology accepted. =)

I WOULD LOVE IT IF A GAGGLE OF SWISHY NELLY QUEENS SHOWED UP

I WOULD WALK OVER TO THEM [IN MY HEART PRANCING WITH JOY OVER THERE]

I KNOW THE REVERENCE IN THE SANCTUARY IS IMPORTANT

BUT I MIGHT SQUEAL VERY LOUDLY WITH DELIGHT

Good point, Alli M...

im the butch outgoing one :)

he is very swishy

very effiminate

very soft spoken

it just looks FLAUNT to homophobes

who get offended

then the mockery starts

Oh yeah I can just see them swishing in...saying in loud tones "Darling"....umm are you wanting an outright riot with handbags flying everywhere..come on now..a bunch of queens would not come in quietly and respectfully but flauntingly and loud lol. They would have ulterior motives to show up in a "SWISHY NELLY QUEEN" group lol.

They would not be there for God..or to really be serious about wanting to know Him.

 

..

 

o yes!

we must figure them out

yes

discern those loud frilly men!

and hurry

send an envoy!

 


make sure their motives are pure!  ....all in 45 secs

before we get to know em

or even welcome them?

all ways different rules for the gays

and Alli M.

 

i thought u would be the last to say that :(

 

"They would not be there for God..or to really be serious about wanting to know Him."

my notes are general to general

:)

different rules for gays

FROM UNSAFE CHRISTIANS

again

maybe no one listens to the millions of testimonies of christians sharing why they were at church before they GOT SAVED!

some lookin for a SPOUSE

some to have a place to go to get out

some to keep up appearances

some to get a fix

some to quiet a naggin spouse

some cause its what one does

some need a pick me up

or a let ME down

some to feed their addictions to potluck or social

some to hope its a magic pill

loud or quiet these all are!

some to keep busy

some to be lazy

get away from home for few hours

some come for the beautiful music

.

.

not every law abiding good heterosexual christian have pure motives

no knocking down a lever in your hearts for those

..

i listen to u peoples

very closely

.

no ye not u r on a stage

blocking the way

eply by Alli M. 1 hour ago Umm..maybe your meaning of swishing queens is different from ours here..those who do the real swishing and the "darling" and calling each other "tart" and really being flaunting loud and dressing up "to the nines"...are seriously not interested in God.

1 Samuel 16:7

King James Version (KJV)

But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart

 

..just when i thought a met a different kind of CHRISTIAN

I probably would not even know they were gay, unless they flaunted it,   Just like with rings and other like things.  Unless the person flaunts it, I probably will not even notice it.  I like to leave these things between the individual and God. 

 

However, if they flaunt it or propogate it or defend it as something that is good, then I'll be speaking up against their ideas.  Most likely they will take it as a personal attack.  Which is characteristic of someone who holds to an idea so tightly that they become one with the idea.  They see a rejection of their idea as a rejection of themselves.  That is their problem, another sign of the immaturtity exhibited among homosexuals.
