If You've Heard Someone Say 'Love The Sinner, Hate The Sin,' You Should Share This With Them
I have to admit, as a devout Christian, I grew up with some pretty strong views about homosexuality. Then my cousin came out, and that forced my views under a different light. Here, a pastor shares the story of a late-night phone call from a mom about a deeply theological question ... and the reason she's asking breaks his heart. At 0:49, he shares the story. At 3:42, he talks about the thing that always forces us to think differently. And at 4:19, he rebuts perhaps one of the most commonly used refrains about homosexuality in church.
If you're a Christian, like I am, and this challenged some long-held beliefs, I would love it if you shared it to start a conversation with your friends. If you're an avowed atheist but have friends whom this may speak to, it would be great for you to share as well. Just remember: Always start from a place of love, cuz trolling never helps anyone.
