You can love someone and disagree with their lifestyle, behavior and decisions.
It happens all the time in families. It happens among people who love one another deeply.
We all have different sins with which we struggle, even those who call themselves disciples Christ.
Yet, we also have the responsibility of holding one another accountable and warning those who aren’t a part of the Body of Christ.
Calling out a lifestyle of fornication, adultery, gluttony, greed, pride or homosexuality isn’t a PHOBIA or fear or judging …it’s our responsibility.
If someone disagrees with someone else living a vegan lifestyle… that’s not VEGANPHOBIA.
If someone disagrees with someone else living a promiscuous lifestyle… that’s not PROMISCUPHOBIA.
If someone disagrees with someone else regularly smoking marijuana… that’s not WEEDPHOBIA.
Don’t misdiagnose someone because they disagree with you.
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (NKJV)
9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. (A)Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor [a]homosexuals, nor [b]sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.
Remember, Yeshua the Messiah was accused of being a drunk, glutton and blasphemer.
If I might be permitted to ask – does this relate to a specific experience or is this in general terms? Not that I suppose it matters too much either way. I would also ask whether or not you are referring to Christians who identify as part of the LGBT community, or people who don’t consider themselves Christian?
Hello. Being a Christian, the blog is written from a Christian perspective and applies to anyone who calls themselves a Christian no matter what lifestyle. Thanks for asking.
