Ephesians 4:15 has some pretty sound instruction, it says to "speak the truth…in love." IN LOVE. Let me just link that to the attributes in 1 Corinthians 13; love is patient, kind, it doesn’t envy / boast, it isn’t irritable, its not resentful, it bears all things. 1 Peter 3:15 teaches us to proclaim the truth with “gentleness and respect.” We must uphold the truth of God’s Word but in a loving, gentle, and respectful manner. We must be honest about what the bible says but at the same time our message should be focused on the forgiveness and freedom from sin that are available through the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Bible says homosexuality is a sin (Genesis 19:1-13; Leviticus 18:22; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9). I don’t believe homosexuality is the way God intended things to be HOWEVER (like that’s a really big however) this doesn’t give me any right whatsoever to treat someone who is gay any differently. The Bible does not describe homosexuality as a greater sin than any other. All sin is offensive to God, no specific sin offends God more than others. We have all fallen short of God’s amazing perfect standard and just because my sin struggle is different to theirs does not make me superior in anyway whatsoever. I have judged others, lied, disobeyed my parents, dishonored God’s holy day, among many many other things. Yet God’s unfailing, amazing grace and mercy never ceases to drown me, even washing my shame away. God’s forgiveness is readily available for us all, no matter our sin struggle. He promises the strength for victory over sin to all those who will believe in Jesus Christ for salvation. As a Christian, I have been called to continually love people regardless of whether I agree with what they do, it would be so hypocritical of me to treat them any differently. And I wouldn’t want to. No matter who they are, God loves them immensely and therefore so should I.
What is Jesus interested in?
Is that what I am looking out for as I live out my life day to day?
Or am I looking more to my own interests?
“For everyone looks out for their own interests, not those of Jesus Christ.” - Philippians 2:21)

A saltire was burned today. I’m still disgusted. People have been stabbed and beaten today. Nazi salutes were thrown infront of a war memorial today. Young people have had abuse hurled at them left and right. Do not ignore this. Do not ignore what’s happening in Glasgow tonight.
if you’re not gaelic or not residing in scotland it is your duty to make this blow up.
