I Peter 2:9-10 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God's people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
It's time to stop "dialoguing" and just make a decision and let the fall out be what it is.
NOTE: I do not have a problem with homosexual persons. But as a believer in the Lord I firmly hold to the model of what God is to the church, is what a husband is to his wife. And two men or two women can't model this properly. and yes, I know it can be argued that male/female marriages don't often mirror God's intent properly either...but at least they have a better chance at it. It's the deliberateness of turning from scriptural truth and historical church truth that is at issue. Not the love of the person who struggles (or chooses not to struggle).
