My Opinion on Gays( a Christian's point of view)
In Leviticus chapter 18 verse 22, it says “Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.” In other words, don’t have a sexual relationship with someone of the same gender because it is a terrible sin. I am a Christian and I believe it is not right to be gay, but that does not mean I am going to treat that person differently because of their sexuality. That is where people get it wrong. Some churches say if you are gay you will go to hell or God does not love you, but that is a lie. In James chapter 2 verse 10, it says,“For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.”. In other words, it says if you have only committed one sin you are just as bad as a man that has committed thousands a.k.a. all sins are equally as bad. So we have no right to persecute a LGBT because we all have at least once committed a sin. Even if in our eyes that sin is worse, God says all sins are equal.
On June 12, 2016, Omar Mateen killed 50 people (including himself) at a gay club in Orlando Florida. Multiple people support his decision (even some Christians) for killing gays. If you think he is right for killing people for being gay, you should believe all of us would be dead. They committed a sin and so have we. Whether we think theirs is worse or not we all have committed a sin.
In conclusion, I do not support LGBT, but I will not discriminate them. I will not disrespect them or treat them differently for their decision. I have committed plenty of sins and realize that all sins are equal. I do not support gays, but I will treat them just as I would treat a straight person.
