"Now, the truth be told, I think it’s a great idea for people who do not approve of homosexual practice to sit with LGBT leaders and young people and hear about their lives and their struggles."
Jesus ate and drank with ALL- both the Pharisees, the Publicans and the sinners. Jesus didn't come to condemn ANYONE (even his 'condemnation' of the Pharisees was simply 'tough love' to jolt them to their senses---one of them, Nicodemus, actually came to saving faith). Jesus has not come to CONDEMN, He has come to SAVE. However, Jesus never 'chased anyone down the road' begging them to 're-consider' their rejection of His words (remember the 'rich young ruler'). Jesus gave them the WORD, and if they could receive it, they were saved. (cont.)
