It is not a Christians right to say whether someone’s sexual preference is right or wrong. Yes! You heard right, it is not right for Christians to judge others based on sexual preference. Others may perceive Christians to be judgmental in their ways and perhaps, different; especially, living in this modern generation. However, Christian believers should choose to word their opinions wisely, as to not to offend if incase they also have a different point-of-view on the subject. This is because the Bible explains that one should not judge according to appearance, but if one judges, one is judge righteously. “Judge not according to the appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.“(John 19:18) KJV. Even so, Christians should not be offended if they are also told they have done something wrong that need correction. Christian believers should take it as a blessing that someone was bold enough to care about their walk with Christ. Just as the Bible says, “And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me. ( Luke 7:23 )KJV. Never-the-less, Christians should stay humble and realize that everyone was built in their own special way and only God can weigh a person’s sin. According to the Bible, it clearly says “False weights and unequal measures–the LORD detests double standards of every kind“ (Proverbs 20:10) NLT. This is important! it is telling all Christians that we are to judge ourselves before we judge others because all sin is equal in God’s sight, or else we are permitting to be a double standard person! So as Christians strive for righteousness, they should also stop judging others for being gay, because “all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God!” (Romans 3:23) NIV. It is important for Christians to be kind to every type of sinner, because they are not holy either.–“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–(Ephesians 2:8)NIV. Christians should not forget that Jesus did not omit the murderer or the thief who were hanging on the crosses behind him from entering heaven; in fact the murderer asked God to remember him, and so as he accepted Jesus into his heart and died, he then entered heaven. It was by free will that the thief who did not accept Jesus, did not go to heaven. It was his personal choice not to believe. Therefore, we must take into consideration John 5:24, which says: “I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life.” –This should give reason enough to be considerate of ALL sinners because of he who believes in him. One must love our neighbor as himself. Just as it is written in the second most valuable commandment of the Bible: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”(Mark 12:31)NIV. It is easy to forget this as a christian. One may feel more righteous then the other Christians do to the walk and life others take, but it is important to understand that one is also a sinner and does not have it all figure out. One does not want to fall under diverse weights, one must seek to love truth and love others despite each others differences.
