    • Culture is not right or wrong good or bad, it is just the way we are

    • If christians use Leviticus 18:22 to condemn homosexuality aren't they hypocrites if they go eat fried shrimp and wear jeans?

      • According to science: There is no conclusive evidence. There has been studies of Identical twins that do not have uniformity in sexual orientation and yet they have the exact same gene sequence

        • Romans 5:12, Ephesians 2:1 states that we are born in sin: Meaning different people may be inclined to a certain kind of sin since they were born

      • It does but, animals also eat their babies, eat their own feces, etc..

    • Homosexuality is now normal so whats wrong with it? Isn't this God’s answer for many of the orphans in the world?

      • There are wonderful loving good people ready to adopt these babies but they can’t just love who they want to love.

      • Normal means a conforming to the standard of the common type

        • Homosexuality is not statistically normal, biologically, physiological, evolutionarily

        • It may be socially accepted but it is not biblically accepted

      • We can not bend the principals of God word to suit the vocal minority groups

    • How do I respond to someone that is gay?

      • Only when you are in Leadership and you see that it is having a negative effect on the rest of the group

    • When confronting someone who believes they are homosexual use the sandwich method: confront, Lots of love, confront

    • Romans 12:31 do not be overcome by evil

      • Evil is the judgemental arrogance of christians who do not know how to respond

    • 1 Cor. 16:13-14 “Watch, stand fast in the faith be brave, be strong. let all that you do be done with love”
