ASK ME STUFF
I am absolutely stunned at this question. I got it nearly a week ago and I haven’t been able to put the right words together for a response, so here goes a week’s worth of thoughts;
This question is so wrong. Your curiosity is not the part that’s wrong, it’s the words you used. Firstly, they’re not fags, they’re humans. They’re people with dreams and likes and dislikes and friends and day jobs and lovers, just like you.
Secondly, you nor I decide who “should” be “allowed” in heaven. The ONLY thing Christians are entitled and entrusted to do on this earth is to love. Literally, that’s it. That’s the command of the entire New Testament, summed up. Christians (the entire body of Christ) have strayed so completely far from this one command, and have even added their own religious commands. When this happens, people like the Westboro Baptist Church parade around and dirty up the name of Christ.
According to “Church standards” (notice how I don’t say God standards), a homosexual is lost in a disgusting sin and they need immediate help. The problem with this thinking is that it takes the focus entirely off of God. You’re worshipping their homosexuality, instead of worshipping the goodness of God.
I don’t understand why the church doesn’t have “programs” designed to relieve people of their gossiping. Why doesn’t the church stand outside of a strip club with picket signs? Why aren’t there Bible beating people in the courthouse when a married couple is getting a divorce? Why aren’t you petitioning to end premarital sex? Do you see what I’m getting at? It’s like people pick and choose what they want to get angry about. My question is this; if homosexuality is the sin that they say it is, why do Christians treat it any differently? According to the Bible, there is no one sin greater than the other.
I’m not calling homosexuality a sin. That’s not what this post is about. To answer your question; Life is not about being perfect enough to get a reward at the end, nor is it about doing good because you’re afraid of what might happen if you don’t “do good”. It’s about doing good simply because it’s the right thing to do. And it’s about learning to love people. Period. It’s that simple. You are not a judge, nor does your opinion hold any validity. Love everyone, and don’t worry about who is “allowed” into heaven.
But, to officially answer your question; “getting in” to heaven is a condition of the heart. So yes, I think “fags” should be “allowed” in heaven.
I urge you, friend, to wake up. Homosexuality is not a disease to be fixed, nor is it a death sentence or a one way ticket to hell. I’m sure that when God looks at His children, He is incapable of seeing anything except love for them. He doesn’t see a drunk, He doesn’t see a cheater. He doesn’t see a person’s sexuality. He sees love.
