We refuse to identify people with who they have sex. They may want to reduce their identity to this, but we don’t, and nor does God. Sinners? Yes. Broken? We all are. Redeemed? If we want to be.

    The gospel I would say is the main message of the Bible, it is the work of Jesus Christ, the Son of God and what He did on the cross for all of humanity.
    Β  Β  Β 
    Β Despite the efforts of any person, we cannot earn our way to heaven, Romans 3:23 says: "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God". Anyone can examine themselves and know that even though yes sometimes we can do good, we also do evil at times, we commit moral crimes, we rebel against God, or as known otherwise we sin. We lie, we steal, we blaspheme God, we can lust and have hate for our brother in our heart, these are just some of the sins more than likely every person on earth has committed. God is loving, holy and God is merciful among other attributes but He is also just, perfectly just. Like any crime sin has to be punished, if God did not punish sin then He would be unjust, He would be corrupt, someone has to take the punishment. Romans 6:23 says: "For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord". This is talking about spiritual death, not physical death, if you die in your sins then you go to hell. There is good evidence that humans have souls, near death experiences are one of those evidences. There is a part of you that lives on past your physical body.Β 

    Β  Β  Β  God sent His only Son to earth about 2000 years ago, His Son is Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the promised Savior of the world, He fulfilled hundreds of prophecies by coming to our world. Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life and was crucified on the cross as a payment for our sins. God poured out His wrath on Jesus in our place, meaning the justice of God is satisfied and sin is punished. While we were still at enmity with God, God still wants to save us, Romans 5:8 says: "But God demonstrates His own love toward us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us". 3 days after Jesus was crucified He rose again proving that His payment was enough and that He was who He said He was, the Son of God. There is real world evidence for the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, this is not just a nice story.
    Β 
    Β  Scripture tells us to repent and put our trust in Jesus, to follow Him as Lord. Repentance means a change of mind which means to turn from a life following sin to a life following Christ. Salvation is a free gift and it cannot be earned, no one can be perfectly moral on their own, it is impossible, this is the only way to be in the presence of God in heaven. It is important to reiterate that we cannot save ourselves, it is the gift of God for one to be saved. Cry out to God to have mercy on you, plead with God to save you. Ephesians 2:8-9 says: "For by grace you have been saved through faith and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not as a result of works so that no one may boast". Salvation is a gift.Β 

    Β  Β  Β  There is no other way, Jesus Himself said that He is the way, the truth and the life and no one comes to the Father but through Him. Jesus is not just a way, a truth or a life. Romans 10:9 says: "That if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you will be saved."

    Today all is about identity. 2000 years ago it was all about community and family. Identity has hidden the way to god for many people I think. It's a construct. Try to understand gods word and you see 1000 of false identities in the world, because this is what society teaches.

    That is so self defeating though lol πŸ™ˆ What you're saying about identity in sexuality is literally the same logic as "my identity is in Christ" the same structure behind the meaning. Both come from subjective experience lol both stem from the sense of self and your self image of (I am ) It therefore shows you're intention that you don't like homosexsuality because it opposes God's design to reproduce. Just admit that you don't like the "gay behaviour" rather than using contraditive statements that make you look silly within your own logic. Come on bro

    My identity isn't in my sexuality, my identity is in The Messiah Jesus. I am not a naysayer. I am for human flourishing, that only way that can happen is through man & woman relationship. I am Christian, evangelical, white, conservative.

    When people are led by sin instead of Jesus, they end up spiritually dead, for the wages of sin is death. Being heterosexual is my identity now as a child of God. There was a point where I thought of myself as bisexual. I rejoice that God cleaned me up & I am heterosexual & I do think of it as an essential part of my identity in Christ because we are not sexless. This is an issue Christ needs to heal within these people.
    I think in that sense yes, sexuality is part of my identity, except I am now in Christ & He has cleansed & purified me. I am pure, heterosexual, & child of God. Full of the Spirit.
    Heterosexuality is how God made us originally, He designed us that way & the devil tries to pervert it. Everything God makes is good. We are fearfully & wonderfully made.

    In addition to this conversation: Sean McDowell recently did an interview with Tim Muelhoff, author of Winsome Convictions. He talked about this role play experiment, where Christians and atheists were challenged to not only try to think about what it would be like to be in the other person's shoes, but really and deeply empathise and sympathise with the need and pain and feelings experienced by the other party, by meditating on a written piece of diary from the other party for two weeks and then 'play' the part of this person fully in front of a group. Tim talked in depth about the necessity and value of first establishing a relationship before you (can) bring your content, and one thing that really stuck with me, was when he said that when a gay girl heard 'God loves you but hates your sin', what she actually heard was: 'God loves you but hates your face.' Of course it's true that our identity is not our sexuality, but hearing this from a gay person was an eye opener for me. Listening to this interview had me rethink how to approach a conversation in the future, we can't just shove the truth through someone's throat like that.. When we automatically say 'all lives matter' to someone who is proclaiming BLM, Tim said, we brush aside some deep pain that this person first needs to have addressed (regardless of whether he is right in his thoughts).

    Youre right, sexuality is not identity. However you cant claim that sexuality isnt identity then claim the only way to have a good society is through man-woman relationships. This devisive rhetoric is damaging to true harmony, and should have no place in modern society.

    It is when you make a god out of it. That's why LGBT people don't understand that Jesus did say something about LGBT sexuality …he said "You shall have no other gods before me". That's a condemnation of all kinds of idolatry , promiscuity, money , possessions, vanity, workaholism, drugs, alcohol, your ideas about reality etc etc etc.

    Who says that every couple has to procreate? There are so many children stuck in the adoption system that desperately need homes.

    Our identity is in God our Creator.
    1 Peter 3:15
    β€œBut in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect”

    Being straight is part of my identity as it is who i am, it is not the only thing about me but it is a part so i have no problem with people who classify themselves according to what they like to do or are, it is not hurting anyone else.

    Why should religion be involved in government? The First Amendment expressly prohibits that. Also there's no evidence that children raised by same sex couples are worse off than children raised by opposite sex couples.

    Disliking this video, The absolutely MOST important thing is for everyone to have a relationship with God, not for a man and woman to be together. I can't believe you would say a man and woman together is the most important thing because that is obviously not true. God is.

    So every child deserves a mother and a father? So what about children that have only one living parent? What about children who live with grandma? In an orphanage? With tutors who are not their parents?
    Living in a "normal" family makes better people than LGBT+ families? Can you say that again without shame?
