There will be no dialogue between LGBTQ Citizens until it is clearly understood that they are who God created them, are not sick, sinful, or in need of changing. We cannot "love the sinner but hate the sin" if we falsely accuse them or are ignorant of the fact of homosexuality. The last thing we want is to coerce them to lie, pretend, go into denial......or marry our sons and daughters in a dishonest and destructively sham marriage.

Typo on the previous comment sorry: I'm not sure why building church leaders feels we need to have special training on ministering love to gays; I don't recall you all doing a training module for ministering love to murderers or prostitutes. This is a slippery slope for you guys and slick move towards acceptance by assuming the position that Christians would be unloving when ministering to gays. I guess controversy and common en vogue topics sells today; I respect your right to free market and enterprise. You are a business and must make a profit; its your right as a company to sell this training and it's my right not to buy this module.

Homosexuality is a result of sin entering the world through the original sin. And as God loves all people He has created, He loves them as well. His Son died for them as well. We are to love the sinner but hate the sin. Weren't we all sinners before we accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior? We are to reach out to ALL people regardless of their sin because all who are lost need Jesus. When we accept Him as our Lord and Savior we become "a new man" and many homosexuals absolutely have rejected the gay lifestyle and become heterosexual after receiving Christ. He is able to do abundantly beyond what we can think or imagine. We should never hesitate to share the gospel because of someone's sin. Then we leave no room for God's grace. He covers my sins and declared me righteous even as I struggle with my secret demons and sin. We need to have the faith that He is powerful enough to do the same for them. Whether or not they get into Heaven is not ours to judge after they become a Christian.
