Many more voices are now verifying the fact that when Christians say homosexuality is a sin it is not personal to them. It is no more personal than a doctor saying you have cancer. It is a true diagnosis, and in the case of sin, homosexuality is diagnosed a sin.
There is no real phobia in what is wrongly called homophobia. No one really is afraid of (phobia) homosexuals. Perhaps better stated – afraid for. No one thinks ill of a drunk or a pedophile, after all it is just a sin, but we hope and pray they do no evil in public, or create another victim. We only say that their behavior is in total opposition to God, and has no place either in the Church or in heaven.
An old Negro spiritual says, Everybody talkin’ about heaven ain’t guawn there. No one is a Christian because he or she says so. The Christian person is a creation of his faith which a direct result of an interaction with God. The fruit of a relationship is the Christian not the mere discussion of it.
