when do you think God's message is all sugar. The FACT is...if you fail to repent of your sins and accept Jesus as your savior..YOU WILL ABSOLUTELY BURN IN HELL. Now..the decision of who will and will not...is not mine, nor any other Christians to make...however, the Bible is VERY clear on this.
However, I DO believe you have a point...alienating yourself from the very people you are trying to reach out to...is counterproductive to what you are trying to accomplish. My feelings are this...sin is sin, the Bible DOES list specific sins God REALLY hates...BUT God is perfect and sinless and hates ALL SIN....I can assure you that every person in that congregation, as well as, the pastor..is NOT without a sin that God hates JUST AS MUCH...I can almost PROMISE you that. What this church has done is ensure that NO GAY EVER walks thru their door to hear the word of God. A church belongs to GOD...and if God were to walk the planet today he wouldn't be in a church...he would be with the most sinful disgusting individuals he could find to spread the word of his love. That love however, has an expiration date...called Judgement, at that time even though his love will remain..your sinful nature and refusal to accept him as savior will place you in eternal damnation.
