Over the past year or so, I have had a friend go from confessing to me that he was struggling with same sex attraction to accepting that this is the way he is and he can't change it. This guy is a believer who has essentially given up on God's power to transform his life and has decided to embrace the momentary happiness and fulfillment that a homosexual lifestyle brings him.
So my question for discussion is how to love him like Christ loves him and continue to speak truth into his life as he retreats further and further away from Christian community. And we can extend this to any number of other people (let's limit it to Christians for the time being) who identify themselves as homosexual.
A great place to start may be John 8
where Jesus interacts with the woman caught in adultery.
Let's start from the assumption that homosexual acts are sin and contrary to God's will.
The image in my avatar is a picture from the Hubble Telescope of an "X" structure in the core of the Whirlpool Galaxy 15 million light years away. Looks strangely similar to a cross. Is God trying to get our attention?
