Some of my dearest friends are gay. Most of my dearest friends are Christians. And more than a few of my dearest friends are gay Christians.
As an evangelical, that last part is not something that, traditionally and culturally, I’m supposed to say out loud.
For most of my life, I’ve been taught that it’s impossible to be both openly gay and authentically Christian.
When a number of my friends “came out” shortly after our graduation in the early ’90s, first I panicked and then I prayed.
What would Jesus do?
I asked myself (and God).
According to biblical accounts, Jesus said very little, if anything, about homosexuality. But he spent loads of time talking, preaching, teaching and issuing commandments about love.
That was my answer: Love them. Unconditionally, without caveats or exceptions.
Loving them is easy. Finding clear theological answers to questions about homosexuality has been decidedly not so. That’s why I’m grateful for a growing number of evangelical leaders who are bravely offering a different answer.
Simply put, homosexuality is not a sin, says Bakker, 35, pastor of Revolution NYC, a Brooklyn evangelical congregation that meets in a bar.

The Word of God tells us in the last days mankind would be lovers of themselves, instead lovers of God. Since, the Bible is the complete truth, we as true Christians of Christ can see that mankind has degenerated neck deep into sin.
The writer of the above article Cathleen Falasani pondered what would Jesus do?
Clearly, she didn’t read the Holy Bible, because it tells us exactly what Jesus thought about homosexuality. Let’s take a look at God’s word.
“Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.”
False believers in Christ such as Westboro Baptist Church says that homosexuality is an unpardonable sin.
As a Christian I completely disagree with Westboro on all their ideas. You can be forgiven, if you repent. God is gracious, God is great, and he gives us so many chances to repent and come to him, because the last thing God wants us to do is suffer for eternity.
From then on, Jesus began to preach, “Turn from your sins and turn to God, because the Kingdom of Heaven is near.”
Let me make clear, that we are not to hate any sinners, because we are sinners.
By accepting this sin in his church, Jay Bakker leads them into the wide gates of hell. By Cathleen writing this article and saying yes to the acceptance of this sin, she leads many into hell.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
As for people like Westboro Church, Cathleen, and Jay Bakker, Christ will be separating the sheep from the goat soon enough.
Matthew 25 verses 31-33
“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
