“Love Revived” A Christian Apology to the LGBT Community

If you have been hurt by a Christian, I’m
sorry If you have been made to feel worthless, I’m
sorry If your heart burns inside from what somebody
said of the orientation of life that you’ve lead
If you feel like your desire to be loved has no place
and your church and your friends have failed to embrace
or identify you, too, as one who needs grace, I’m sorry Some of you may be jaded by some Christian
figure who didn’t seek you in love but merely to
cure as if to objectify you and tell you to learn
to go and live like a saint or else you’ll just burn
You see it’s teachings like that which Christ didn’t condone
but rather challenged those accusing to cast the first stone
’cause if they’re not teaching in love then they’re standing alone
in trying to orchestrate themselves what only Christ can atone Now I love the church and it’s institution 
and the way that God has so powerfully used them
to reach out our communities and out to the nations
but I am also aware of our past abrasions Please understand that we are just as depraved
as the next sinner who God so lovingly saved and accept our apology for the way we’ve behaved
and let us love on you the way that Christ would convey
I wish I could stand here and say that your past is
some kind of a mix up and we could take back this
hateful demeanor we displayed but the fact is
there’s still perversion out there like Westboro Baptist Know this…the true body of Christ knows
that Westboro’s corrupted You tell me Fred Phelps never lied, cheated
or lusted But he’ll hold up his signs and talk of God’s
hate by misinterpreting scripture he helps formulate
the plan of the enemy to come decimate the truth of God’s love
that the real church demonstrates I hate it when I see Westboro convene 
But I love it when the Patriot Guard intervenes You see I feel your pain too when their picketing’s
seen having served, myself, as a U.S. Marine
You see they disrespect those who died so we can be free
Saying God laughs at their death but what they don’t see
is that it was Westboro’s sin that put Christ on the tree
Indeed sacrifice seems more Christlike to me
This image of a hateful homophobic facade surely isn’t my loving God Now I affirm the accuracy of God’s revelation
I affirm inerrancy and divine inspiration  and the scriptures are clear that same-sex
relations are contrary to his intent for Creation. 
But I also know that I have sin too and whether you’re gay or straight the gospel’s
still true and he can restore a hurting broken view into
a new and beautiful design like you   I’ve been lost, I’ve lied, I’ve slandered,
I’ve hurt I’ve taken God’s name and treated it like
dirt lust, deceit, greed from wealth
all of these things I am guilty of  myself I have sin…but I’ve been redeemed
Let me tell you about Jesus and his love for you Are you free from the sin that once held you
condemned  Do you feel like your soul is unclean
Because I know of a cross that has been blood stained
to ensure that your royalty’s seen I know of a hill that once bore naked
a man who loved those who’d forsake him enough to bare their sins and take them 
from condemnation to sanctification You see this man of love who while nailed
to a tree had his children in mind and he begged this
one plea that God the Father would show mercy 
even on those of whom Christ’s death were guilty
He pardoned his deity to wander as least to live, love and die then be raised a high
priest because of this image he invites us to feast
he is a loving God not a Westboro beast that which the harlot wiped from Jesus’ feet
she then wore in her hair as a crown of defeat a defeat from dichotomies of pure and impure
now vindicated by Christ because he loved her Now I pray that my message begins to take
place and you can know the joy of this restoration
this manifestation of Christ’s affirmation was made for you
as a new creation He loves you
I love you the Church loves you

  1. in this modern Age, people are oblivious to the sound doctrine of the bible they have invented another Jesus and another gospel as the apostle Paul said.
    and how about this …..I loved Jacob and I hated Esau…malachi 1:1-3
    The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity, Psalm 5:5
    And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth… (Matthew 13:42 )to all LGBTQ if you don't repent.
    and the last warning in Revelation 22:15 …..Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

  2. Most LGBT people want you to condone homosexuality….if you don't recognize it as a sin how can one come to repentance… simply put you can't. Good video but it doesn't get to the heart of the problem.

  3. This is laughable! Learn the Scriptures in the Greek, Hebrew and in context and you will find that same sex loving relationships are never mentioned in the Bible. Scholars and scholars know this. If they don't – Get off the pulpit! Praise Jesus Christ!

  4. Being an openly gay Christian some things I simply can't agree on …however at least he bothered with an apology most people don't

  5. Scripture clearly states (in First Corinthians, chapter six) that believers who happen to be practicing homosexuals will "not inherit the kingdom of God." This does not mean that they will loose the free gift of eternal life, but that they will loose rewards in the coming kingdom. Inheritance, as seen in Scripture, is always a family matter (cf. Numbers 27:8-11; Romans 8:17).

    Reference First Corinthians, chapter five, verses nine through twelve, and notice how many descriptive words Paul uses in relation to sinful actions associated with brothers (i.e., not those of the world that are without, but those that are within):

    "I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators [Gk. pornos]: yet not altogether with the fornicators [Gk. pornos] of this world, or with the covetous [Gk. pleonektēs], or extortioners [Gk. harpax], or with idolaters [Gk. eidōlolatrēs]; for then must ye needs go out of the world. But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator [Gk. pornos], or covetous [Gk. pleonektēs], or an idolator [Gk. eidōlolatrēs], or a railer [Gk. loidoros], or a drunkard [Gk. methysos], or an extortioner [Gk. harpax]; with such an one no not to eat. For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?"

    The sin of fornication is first on the list. Furthermore, every single one of these actions is repeated in the next chapter to describe sinful actions associated with those who will not inherit the kingdom! I'll prove it:

    "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators [Gk. pornos], nor idolaters [Gk. eidōlolatrēs], nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous [Gk. pleonektēs], nor drunkards [Gk. methysos], nor revilers [Gk. loidoros], nor extortioners [Gk. harpax], shall inherit the kingdom of God."

    Yet again, fornication is first on the list. Further still, the phrase "abusers of themselves with mankind" is translated from the compound word "arsenokoitēs" ("arrēn" means "a male" and the word "koitē" means "sexual intercourse;" we gain the English word "coitus" from the second Greek word, and "coitus" means "sexual intercourse"). With this in mind, the translation of "arsenokoitēs" is "one who lies with a male," or "male homosexual." Moreover, Paul clearly identifies that regenerate individuals are in view when he states, "ye do wrong [Gk. adikeō], and defraud, and that your brethren. Know ye not that the unrighteous [Gk. adikos] shall not inherit the kingdom of God?" The Greek work adikeō is simply the verb form of the adjective adikos. In other words, 'you are acting unrighteously, and the unrighteous (i.e., you) will not inherit the kingdom.' Also, contextually, the "ye" applies to those who were "bought with a price" (verse twenty).

    He then rebukes them further in verse eleven as follows:

    "And such were some of you: but ye are washed ['were washed' indefinite past], but ye are sanctified ['were sanctified' indefinite past], but ye are justified ['were justified' indefinite past] in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God."

    The Spirit is pleading that they don't return as a sow to wallow in the mire.

    Relative to the word "washed" reference II Peter 2:1, 13a, 20-22.
    Relative to the word "sanctified" reference Hebrews 10:26-31.
    Relative to the word "justified" reference Titus 3:1-8.

    In all of the above references the possibility of washed, sanctified, and justified believers being disinherited is in view.

    In Scripture, the inheritance is associated with the kingdom, and vice versa (cf. Matthew 25:34; 1 Corinthians 6:9, 10; 15:50; Galatians 5:21; Ephesians 5:5; James 2:5). Not only does Scripture teach that inheritance is a family matter, but it also teaches that the inheritance can be forfeited and withheld (cf. Hebrews 12:16-17; Genesis 25:31-33). This is what Scriptures such as Matthew chapter seven, verse twenty-one are dealing with ("Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom [Gk. basileia: kingship, dominion, rule] of heaven [lit. 'the rule of the heavens']; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven"), and this is a message that Christians should be taught.

    Much more could be written on the matter, but the general summation is, that when Jesus the Christ (the Messiah, the One who will rule and reign) returns in view to establishing His literal one-thousand year reign on this literal earth, Christians will be judged (cf. Romans 14:10; 2 Corinthians 5:10) in reference to their works, as to whether they "…shall be accounted worthy" (Luke 20:35a) to reign with Christ in His kingdom (cf. 1 Thessalonians 2:12; 2 Thessalonians 1:5), or whether they "suffer loss" of such privileges, they themselves being "saved; yet so as by [lit. through'] fire" (1 Corinthians 3:15). For "If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him [relative to suffering on his behalf], he also will deny us [relative to reigning with Him]" (2 Timothy 2:12).

    Thus believers who happen to be practicing homosexuals, and who die in this particular sin, will "not inherit the kingdom of God." They will forfeit their inheritance, and consequently they will not reign with Christ in His kingdom (even though they are still eternally saved by grace through faith).

    There is a free gift:

    "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast." (Ephesians 2:8–9)

    And there is also a prize to be won:

    "Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible." (1 Corinthians 9:24–25)

    A gift and a prize are not synonymous.

    Believing on the Lord Jesus Christ is relevant to salvation by grace through faith which is a gift imparted to an individual while that individual is "dead in trespasses and sins" and it is based solely upon the work of another (Christ). Once an individual has believed on the Lord Jesus Christ, salvation by grace through faith remains the present and continuous possession of that individual.

    The Inheritance is relevant to reigning with Christ during The Messianic Era which is a reward that may or may not be imparted to an individual who has already "passed from death unto life" and it is based upon the work of the saved individual. This Inheritance is a hope, consequently it is not the present possession of the believer, rather, its reception, or lack thereof, is placed, in its entirety, at a future date.​

  6. Mankind be warned Satan uses the concept of love and creates confusion, homosexuality is not love but the same concept was used in past city's long gone, that being Sodom and Gomorrah. It is the same in this generation as it was said in last days it shall become as the days of Noah as the days of lot. Satan has mislead the world and directed it future towards the time of Sodom in which by mankind making such choices it is also said 'that Satan gains power over his own domain' for this kingdom you stand in now is his domain but the power of Christ has kept him at bay, limiting what he can do. But mankind you have chosen to allow the greater of sins to define your society to undermine the eternal word of God concerning marriage that it shall only be between a man and women, to become as one flesh leaving their parents, for purpose of bringing forth children. Sadly what comes next is not a time of love and happiness, but a time of sorrows. Be not mistaken and realise now and wake up homosexuality is lust and brings the desolation of the spirit spoken in Daniel. It is not something you should love, but rather call the world to repent from, you can shown compassion to a lost soul and show it love, but do not show love for that grievous sin that is condemning that soul to Hell. For that very soul will one day call out against you who bear false witness, who let it believe it was loved in it state of sin and it never repented and then learned the hard way that it sin was in itself grievous. Sometimes it is wisdom to say direct and harsh things, just as a parent says to their child to keep it from harm so has God done the same by the prophets to the children of men. Some do call to repent in hate done the wrong way, but some also call to repent in love done the right way, the word love does not need to be said, and by one truly showing love in many cases it is, all the prophets when spoke harsh things to the wicked did so from love, desiring to save them.

  7. I didn't like it when Christians wouldn't condone my sin either… until I became a Christian. Being "hurt" by a Christian, a real Christian, was apart of Jesus Christ's "healing". Tough love hurts, but I imagine hell would hurt a lot more.

  8. Love this video I've seen it b4 to but being glBt is how a being is created or becomes with experience and unity it isn't a sin

  9. Hello LGBT community,
    I'm an omnist, meaning that I believe in most religions. I am bisexual.
    I was raised to be a perfect little straight homophobic girl, but I'm not anymore. I've felt like this since I was about 5 or 6, but I pretended to be homophobic.
    I am so sorry for all the hurt the church has caused you. I'm sorry for people breaking God's law to not hate,
    I'm so sorry for those who hurt you in the name of God. Jesus loves you- he accepted multiple gay people into the kingdom of God, and even the Pope and multiple priests have said that being gay is okay, and that they are proud of you for fjnding your true self. I'm so sorry.

  10. If most of the gays would not try to shove their agenda down our throats – and tell us that we "have" to accept their choice(s) as normal – then they would not receive negative feedback and responses. They don't want to hear the truth – they want to hear that their lifestyle is okay and that they are going to Heaven despite their sinful lifestyle.
    I'm not into giving people false hope – God tells us to tell the truth – if the homosexuals don't want to hear the truth that's on them. But don't expect others to respond in an accepting way – you are mistaking rebuking for anger and hatred. God says He chastens those He loves – does that mean He hates them? No – it means all of us need correction and guidance – gays are no different.
    We are not called to roll out the red carpet for sinners – God says to rebuke them – and then turn them over to Him for judgement. Most gays today are snowflake homosexuals – they have bought into the agenda that demands that society accept them – and their sin. To that I say no I will not. AND – I will not feel any shame for that.


  11. This guy preaches the gospel, and goes home and has butt sex? Didn't God say go and sin no more, not go and live in your sin forever more?

  12. Oh fuck off! Be true and hate me and judge me as you wanna do. Don't sugarcoat your true sentiments, your ugly inner face.

  13. If they're Christians, they should call it LHBT, not LGBT. "Gay" means happy and joyful, not a pathological sexual condition.

  14. Amen God Loves the gays but gays have to Love God back and do Gods will which is not be gay and do all other commandments as well . Repent and be baptized.

  15. You have not been redeemed if you are living in your sin. What sins are acceptable to you, and what aren't? The 'acceptable' of LGBTI people is a lie… read your bibles.

  16. The Devil is using the word Love without it proper understanding to mislead the entire world of this time it why what Isaiah said about they will mistake good and evil, bitter for sweet and light for darkness in the last days, this is now fulfilled. Sin is being justified under the cloak of love, lust it being called love and the true understanding of love is called hate. Whole world has become lost. Iniquity abounds the nations, hypocrisy fills the churches, who can be saved of this generation.

  17. K I'm no christian I'm not Catholic , but I'm lesbian, I know 1 girl , Keziah, I told her I was lesbian and she said "I'm sorry, my church say your PEOPLE are wrong I can't hang out with you." And all I did was start to cry…

  18. Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in He's own image,in the image of God he created him;“male and female" He created them.
    Genesis 1:28 God blessed them and said to them “Be fruitful and increase in number;fill the earth and subdue it. Let me stop here on this verse so in verse 27 above we see that God created male and female and told them in verse 28 to be fruitful and increase in number. So right from the begining God designed the man and woman relationship no additions no subtractions.He is so amazing that He even went ahead to bless them and tell them to be fruitful becz we all know that it's only with a man and woman that we can bear fruit(children) so no God condems any other form of relationship but then God tells us to walk in love and love one another John 13:34-35 what is my point here as Christians we are supposed to love one another no matter whatever differences we may have and it is only through love that we can reflect Jesus in other's lives. We should not condem sinners for we too are not perfect but instead love ,pray, and encourage our fellow LGBT brothers and sisters . It is only through love that we can redeem our friends and lead them to Christ. Lastly God gave us the spirit of DISCERNMENT to know what is right and wrong pray that God gives you that spirit and when u receive it ull know whether what you are doing is right or wrong

  19. The heart of this video was in a better place… but by insisting that to be LGBT is contrary to God’s will.. it is still hurtful. And to state that in the midst of your apology so that you can, I don’t know, have your cake and eat it to?

    If you want to talk to the LGBTQ+ community about God, take some risks, even risking potentially your own “correctness” so as to actually love them and affirm them as they are.

  20. Yes we dont battle with flesh and blood but principalities and powers[natural forces] rulers of darkness of this world[agindas on different spheres of life(prince of the power of the air)].This is a spiritual battle in high places which we are ill equiped for.

  21. So the moderator of the video chooses to turn his back on God and worship Satan, by leaving these people in sin. Sorry you're not among the faithful. When Jesus said depart from me I knew you not, he was referring to people like you who want to be luke warm about their faith. Jesus had no problem telling someone about their sin, telling them he is the way the truth and the light. You will burn moderator if you don't repent and stop being luke warm about your faith.

  22. Thank you for your non-apology. Have you ever figured out that same-sex attraction is the very core of homosexuality and is the very essence of being gay/lesbian??? Yet you still tell us LGBT people that homosexuality is a sin, which means same-sex attraction is a sin, which means we are sin incarnate (no getting around that!), which means Fred Phelps and his Westboro(ugh) Baptist Church are 100% correct. You should have held off on making an apology video until you've completed your journey to full acceptance of us LGBT people.

  23. John, I beg of you to search for Matthew Vines' teaching about the Bible regarding homosexuality. Reply to me if you are willing.

  24. I don't love sin, I don't love homosexuality- I love my girlfriend. I stand by her, when she's sad and when she's happy and she does this for me. We're partners. We're equals, learning and exploring and helping out to those in need when we can. I pray for her often and have received much from God. We have both been very blessed. Condemn me, but do not implicate that I fell in love with some nonexistent rebellion when, in fact, I fell in love with another person. One who just so happened to also be a girl.

  25. a bit…,.underwhelming. but hey, at least your doing it,id like to see an imam do something like this,not sarcasm or anything i just would like to see it

  26. Hype false grace homosexuality is not just considered sin it is called abomination just like beastiality. Another thing Jesus saying cast the first stone he knew the pharissees were partial in their judgement they accussed the women but didn't bring the man. Also he later told her to go sin no more lest a worse thing come on you he set her free to serve not to continue in Adultry or whatever she was into. Another thing Jesus saying harlots publicans entering in before the pharissees why the why is because they were baptized by John repented and believed in Jesus they did not continue in sin he also said unless ur righteousness except the pharissees u won't be able to get in. If ur repented from a lifestyle of homosexuality awesome but u still have to overcome ur flesh is not born again neither is ur soul a daily fight a daily wrestling match between ur flesh and human spirit what u read look at store up in ur soul is what will determine who wins it's not once saved always saved it's just like ur daily tasks daily job u have to make the effort on daily basis Everytime u don't give in to ur flesh u relieve a crown but it's daily u do have to press into Christ u have to fight for Victory . If u fall get back up but u will have to overcome the devils condemnation . Look keep the scriptures before ur face Genes 9,19,judges 19 Leviticus duet tell u how the Farther sees sin and abominations New testament we see the Son now we have access to the Holy Ghost u have to make ur life comfortable for him we don't have him at all times the Spirit comes go daily fight to die to self and u get to live as a new creature but u have to fight it's not just automatic or given new nature is available mind of Christ is available but u have to fight urself ur mind the devil and carnal Christians the world. Jesus said take up ur cross daily and follow me. If u live however u want to live God does not tolerate lawlessness Jesus does not either he rejects the carnal lawless Christian Matthew 7 if u live for him he recieves u.

  27. ENOUGH!!!

    Romans 12:9
    Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good.

    Proverbs 12:1
    Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates reproof(rebuke) is stupid.

    1 Corinthians 13
    If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned,[a] but have not love, I gain nothing.

    4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;[b] 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

    8 Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. 11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.

    13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

    Isaiah 5:20
    Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

    Plainly put.. God calls homosexuality, and other immoral sexual acts- abominations, in the old and New Testament.. again… tolerance is not love!

  28. Well said and beautifully spoken, it's peoples choice whether or not they take this as an apology. I see people get so offended easily nowadays and its sad to see. God is a loving God but the truth of the matter is we are all sinners and we need Gods grace. He gave his life on the cross to die for our sins he didnt have to do it but he did for us so that we wpuld be saved. I as a christian and many of my friends agree with what your saying. I too have sinned none of us is perfect. God bless

  29. I wasn't too reassured if god accepted me because from what i heard, homosexuality is sin and it will be and i have been a sinner alone because I have done shit like having the lust to sleep with people. ( Grindr anyone?) But i never knew what love was but jesus the messiah has a room for everyone to have his love for everyone.

    I am a Bi/ Pansexual christian who has been redeemed and purified and i mostly believe in god spiritually and my unconditional love goes to him for eternity because those of you who don't love yourself, you are forgetting something and your heart has a whole room of joy as we people find it hard like myself to accept one another and i still am crying because he has done so much for me.

    Spreading the word with people who doesn't believe will find it hard… i find it hard as well but i'm eager to learn more about god and jesus a lot more.

    I learn by singing Hillsong to Bethel music and Flyleaf ( mostly hillsong worship)

    Lyrics really speak to me and resonate me a lot more than greater power.
    I believe greater power is a awesome thing to have because … Standing for pride is what i seek because we need to feel loved.

    I love god as myself because he wants to know about me and he cares.

    I believe in a miracle working god that has greater power regardless your appearance and sexuality but we were designed to make life but i don't.

    I bet some of you don't because we choose it and im proud of it.

    From all the problems, i pray every single day and night as he blessed and saved me from captivity.

    All i can say is….God is here to love you no matter what you are.
    And i feel like there's more to learn about the messiah and god himself


  30. You mean like, "Oops…"? The train's left the station, pal. American Evangelicals' biggest export to Africa and the Middle East? Homophobia. That's a big part of the world and they don't have the defenses Westerners have.

  31. Forget about my last comment; I have more to add.

    You said that these were teachings Christ didn’t condone. Our Creator made us like this. We didn’t choose this for ourselves from Christians— I am a Christian! This almost brings me to tears because I looked up ‘lgbt christian’ on YouTube looking for consolation. I’ve come out to God and felt better; I still talk to God about it and feel closer to Him. We (including non religious members of the community) have faced so much and it seemingly never ends.

    But I still respect you and your ideals. God bless, and have a nice day.

  32. I am a Christian and I have a friend that is gay and it has never bothered me and it never will. Alot of people think that being in the lgbtq+ community makes them less human but it doesn't. Those people are still people, they matter too. Everyone matters and everyone deserves to be themselves no matter what their sexuality is. GOD LOVES ALL. #alllivesmatter ❤❤❤

  33. GoatJesus…its simple…the world's definition of love isn't the true revelation of Christ…God is love….but we do truly and deep love the LGBTQ Community…we love you dangerously…..because your souls are as precious to God as anyone else's…WE LOVE YOUUU😍😍😍😍😘😘😘😘😘😊😊😊😋😋

  34. Nothing to be apologetic about. Lgbt is sexual deviancy. consider….

    a.) Socially lgbt could be considered unpatriotic. It is a trend, which if widespread, results in a lower birth rate generations down. (Gay/lesbian couples can't create life.) This reduces your nation's population numbers/talent pool and could potentially cause labor shortages. As countries go to war, deaths could increase, it is important to replenish the population.
    ** Some gays choose artificial insemination to have children. This leads to more complicated psychological issues.
    The child grows up wondering if they should find their donor or natural parents. Also. what does he do with the extra same sex parent? Financially and emotionally, should he care for all three of them? Two of them? Which two? What of medical bills? Should he grow up straight or gay? Must he be gay just because his parents are so but not his sperm donor? What of inheritance? It creates great confusion in individuals.

    b.) Some would argue… that gays/lesbians can adopt children. However, that isn't increasing the population, merely caring for existing children, who could already find homes with childless couples, couples whose children pass away in accidents and elderly couples who wish companionship.
    > Some pro gay individuals claim that there too many orphans. Who truly knows this is real? Are they pro gay liberal organizations? Are they fit to decide so.? Remember that there are many childless couples, impotent couples, people with accidents and cant perform sex who adopt too. Advocating lgbt on others to solve the orphan problem is totally illogical. Rather than address why there's a widespread orphan problem (Is there really?) To prevent the creation of orphans, they promote a trend that could spread Aids/ stds with a track record of elderly suicides …just to care for orphans. Isn't that encouraging two questionable issues?

    ** Besides….. How two gay men are fit to educate/raise a female child they adopt is questionable.
    Too many issues arise for gay parents. Odd that the law ignores this.
    – How will the gay parents cope with their daughter's puberty?
    – How will the two fathers help their daughter cope with the montly pms cramps and menstrual bleeding?
    – What of the daughter's bra sizes and feminine health issues?
    – What of their daughter's relationship issues?
    – Can they be trusted not to have incestuous or voyeuristic tendencies?

    ** Similar issues arise when two lesbians raise a male kid.
    – How will they help him cope with / prepare for military service? Sure there are women in the military… but their performance and standards are totally different from men.
    – What of puberty and relationship issues?
    – Given the high sex drive of teenage males…. how will the lesbian pair teach him to cope with this?
    – Can you guarantee there won't be incestuous issues?

    In a normal family unit, children benefit from the advice from both male father and female mother. They both moderate each other and keep each other in check. Children grow up better able to interact with both sexes in the workforce. This provides better balance intellectually, emotionally and economically for children.

    c.) Additionally, as gay couples advance in age, no one cares for them. If the trend spreads….. you have two aged gay men/women with no one to care for or talk to. The financial costs are also very heavy without children to help bear them.
    With no one from their bloodline around to be proud of and interact with, many elderly gay couple turn to suicide. suicide is less likely with straight couples with their own children.

    d.) The skills gays accumulate in their life are not passed on to the next generation……this is a serious talent drain for your nation. In normal relationships, parents pass their skills on to their children.
    They talk to them play with their grandchildren and are satisfied with this achievement.

    e.) Gay sex is unhygienic and potentially spreads disease. In straight sex, the vagina is used and it regularly releases fluids to clean , lubricate and kill bacteria. Gays don't have that option and resort to anal sex. The anus has no natural lubricant/disinfectant, and feces, passes through it daily.(Feces = decomposing, undigested food waste) Thus the anal tract contains more deadly bacteria endangering both gay partners.
    Proportionately, homosexuality is proven to spread Aids and other stds than normal sex.

  35. I first watched this video when I was living an LGBTQ lifestyle. It was the first time I heard anyone disagree with my life but tell me that I was still loved. I didn't care that he didn't agree with my life. I didn't need anyone to condone my lifestyle, just to tell me that I was loved. It was so gentle and meant so much.
    I come back to this as a Christian who no longer lives a gay lifestyle. Who is much happier. And who will not tell others that I condone their actions when it goes against Biblical truth, but who will say, "I love you. I disagree with you. But I love you."

  36. As Judge Judy had already said … "You'll have to do a loooot of convincing !" … And Don't pee on my leg and tell me it's raining …

  37. The real problem here is the media knows how to divide & concur. Just as the church is not all in "Christ". I do not make room for sin, but we don't bare all the blame, the media knows who to interview, & lump us all in one lump sum. The key to Christ is still "Repent & come to Jesus, regardless of your shortcomings. True Born Again walk in the Word: & they turn away from the things of this world. They are light in the darkness, will I say I'm sorry for the True gospel, how can I. Christ died for our sins & was buried, the 3rd day he rose again for our justification. Now walk as one who you owe everything to. Be ye holy by the renewing of your mind, you have to present your bodies as a living sacrifice. Romans 12;1-2. regardless of your worldly desires. Repent means turn around, or away from sin, to Christ. How can someone who is dead to sin live there any longer? God forbid.

  38. Thank you! As soon as you started to speak I started to weep. For I have been hurt by the people in which you speak of. And I just want you to know that I am truly touched by your love. So thank you, for seeing that words make me believe that i'm am nothing to society. Thank you for your apology, because of the words you said, gave me the strength I needed to keep breathing. Thank you.

  39. You can live how ever you desire Mr. Homersexual but you need to keep that disgusting lifestyle deep in the closet and if you really cared about kids you would never attempt to adopt and expose them to such depravity.

  40. The bible says repent, to stop doing what the bible says is wrong. John the Baptist went to Herod and rebuked him for adultery. So I say to you repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins

  41. I'm sorry Romans didn't crucify you. I'm sorry you weren't drowned at birth. I'm sorry you are a degenerate freak. I'm sorry you are a "man" that wants to be penetrated. I'm sorry you like SHIT and cum.

  42. The scriptures also make it clear that shellfish and clothes made of two types of fibers are an abomination. Oh, and the whole pork thing. But we conveniently ignore those passages and many others like it today. We also no longer kill people for adultery. Usually, anyway. Maybe Scripture isn't inerrant. And maybe just because they did something in the Old Testament doesn't mean we should be doing it today.

  43. If there is such a thing as "sin" in God's eyes, we've all "sinned", of course. That being said, it cannot be a "sin" to be something that was not chosen and cannot be changed. Gay people, like straight ones, are certainly capable of "sinning" (according to the definition of "sin"), but simply being gay as opposed to being straight is not--and cannot be– a "sin" in and of itself.

  44. An apology with a slap in the face AGAIN. Most gay people don't want apologies. They just want to be left alone assholes like you.

  45. Lord Jesus, I pray for every person in this comment thread. I lift them up to you and ask you to allow your Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Jesus Christ, the Spirit of truth, to convict and reveal to all that we are all sinners in need of a Savior. I pray that every person on here will feel your love reaching out to them and that they would obey Acts 2:38 and repent, that they would turn around and head to you and change their minds about you and your love. I pray they would accept you as Lord and Savior. I pray they would all be baptized in the only saving name, the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of their sins according to your word and then Lord, fill them with your Spirit! Give them the mind of Christ. In Jesus name. Amen

  46. Just Who are you singing too?? The Lord God Almighty or the world which gives you nothing but demands your destruction?

  47. This video should definitely be viewed by millions of people. Gay or straight. Thank you so much for this. Many people should learn how to handle this kind of situation. So that more gays would experience a change life and accept Jesus as a Lord and saviour. Keep it up!

    "1 Corinthians 6:9"-READ IT.

  49. Straight ex-Christian here. Part of what drove me out of the church wasn't that we mounted Westboro-level attacks against gay people — we certainly did not. What we did do is to hold to the doctrine that homosexuality is an abomination. I heard sermons inside that church for years that were just as hateful to LGBT people as anything Fred Phelps ever said, just couched in more mealy mouthed, suburban friendly terms than Phelps uses.

    I appreciate the good intentions of this video but with your return to singling out homosexuality as contrary to your God's plan, you will never earn the trust of an LGBT person, who, whether they are believers are not, know in their very bones that what you're saying is untrue. People who need no external witness to know how fearfully and wonderfully made they are — just as they are.

    The maker of this video seems to be caring and sincere, within the current limit of his beliefs. I believed the same way. I believe there is hope for this kind of Christian, in studying the Bible's origin(s) and the cultural fabric that produced, sustained, and edited it according to the exigencies of the times. I would also hope that Chistians like this study a broad overview of the blood that dogmatic belief in these texts has spilt over the centuries.

  50. I know that you've gotten a lot of stick for saying homosexual sex is a sin, but I just wanted to encourage you that you are spot on. Jesus said that if we are to follow him, we have to die to self, pick up our cross, and follow Him. If life long celibacy (something that, since the sexual revolution, is treated as if it's an impossible standard, which it isn't) is the only way we can follow Jesus in our sexual life, then so be it. Life isn't about our enjoyment in the here and now, it's about being redeemed and made ready for Heaven.

  51. Well the guy is right, God loves you and loves everyone but hates your sin, only way to change that is to change, to give your sin to Jesus and allow him to change you. No hate just truth, and if your ears can't handle it then you don't love jesus.

  52. The fact so many tears in comments prove how desperate gays are to be normal. God has spoken. Deal with it. It is inside you not how society treats you. You are not normal.

  53. Today we apoligize for Westburo Baptist Church and their hateful attitudes of the sin of homosexuality. Tomorrow we appoligize for Christians that condemn homosexuality. The following day we celebrate the LGBT lifestyle.
    This is the LGBT agenda and Christians are eager to accomidate.

  54. This is so beautiful, thank you! I try to follow Him and His words. Can He forgive me if I'm wrong about love? Can He?

  55. Your empathy and compassion are good but you forgot to tell them, the sinners – all to sin no more…homo's are not condemned because of their orientation, they are condemned bc they failed to obey and Jesus made it clear that one must CHANGE for the gate is narrow! You have courage but neing nice to those in mortal error in order to make them feel good is not being Christian, Jesus died for many, not for all, Jesus did not come to unite but to seperate the wheat from the chaff. … to all yeah who watch this and read this.. truly truly. . Trust in Jesus, and obey Him and Abba and do your best to be like Jesus and when u stumble ( and you will stumble as we ALL do ) repent, pick yourself up and continue your journey to be LIKE the Christ… not like yourself! !!!! All of us are called to loose ourselves completely and be changed and become like Jesus through the Holy Spirit. .. there is no difference between that Baptist church and a church led by a active lesbian bishop or openly gay preacher… they are all forms of evil which are all forms of hate.. Save yourself thru Jesus and obey Abba, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. .do not be swayed but fake love… Satan ruined mankind thru subtle words and niceties. ..beware!

  56. I appreciate the effort, but it falls short in that we are in no way sinners for having sex with our sex. Despite the Bible, we know this in our heart of hearts, and we have a clear conscience. Still, this is a positive step forward, a peaceful gesture made. As a poet, I appreciate the way you have expressed yourself.

  57. Some of y’all need to realize that right is right, and wrong is wrong. The Bible clearly states that homosexuality is a sin, so it ultimately doesn’t matter how it makes people “feel”, it’s still a sin and Christians should be looking for opportunities to witness to them in a way that shows Christ’s love. On that same token, if you’re a Christian who thinks that a gay lifestyle is acceptable, then you need to re-educate yourself on what the Bible says, and you’re also a big part of the reason that the Church has lost so much influence and ability to bring others to Christ. Actively following Christ takes guts, so if you don’t have the intestinal fortitude to stand up for Him, then get off your high horse and quit spouting your false ideas. The Word is inerrant from beginning to end and whether or not you think it homophobic or not is morally and ultimately irrelevant.

  58. my brother…
    as sincere as your apology sounds, your assertion about G.O.D.'s human sexual behavior bounds are not consistent with what is in the bblcl text, found…

    the truth will set u free & u get everlasting life with it…cuz the only promised incorruptible source of truth is The Holy Spirit…

    manufractured opinions are empty & come by demons…

    for the sake of truth & true love in Messiah Christ Yeshua, let us hv a discussion…?

    if G.O.D. be willing contact me here
    & i shall plan, also if G.O.D. be willing, to "gv u my ear"…

    in turn, i shall then share with u, that which The Holy Spirit enables me to share with u…
    terri a.

  59. Hmmmmmm so the world has fallen under Satan's evil sway by converting the Christan faith into becoming worms, and not remaining strong in their actual faith. By the way, in the Bible it does say that homosexuality is one of the worst sins, remember sodom and gamora? Of course you do. God destroyed those cities for the same thing that the LGBT community has been marching and stomping around for. Muslims for exple behead the publicly, doubt you will hear them say their sorry, but the Christian faith…. Which has existed for two thousand years is judged badly and attacked by the godless sons of bitches that say that it's ok for your 11 year old girl to think it's ok to French kiss another girl, or to say they are a they instead of a bit or girl….. Fucking sperm sucking pigs should pay not be praised or apologise for.

  60. This Video shows God's Love and Mercy, at the same time, it shows the Truth of God's Holiness and Justice. Not only "God is Loving", but also "God said that homosexuality is a sin". This video is beautiful!

  61. As Christians and as Jesus we must tolerate sinners but not become caught up in worldly issues. If we accept LGBT as normal then we are going against the very principles taught in the Bible. Jesus Lead those to him through love sometimes tough love. As a Christian you cannot apologize for not accepting LGBT.

  62. I appreciate the sentiment, but you have no idea the level of damage you are talking about. and still see me as damaged, a sinner. So let me share it with you.

    Being born in 1963, as I came of age and realized i was attracted to the same sex, literally cried myself to sleep from about 13 or 14 to about my 20s begging to change, i was told God hated me. There was no Pride Parade but protests against discrimination. Christians in my own church would talk about how gays should be executed, with such anger it seemed they would do it themselves. I watched churches oppose gay rights to protect people from being fired or denied housing.

    I became so depressed I tried committing suicide, believing that is what God wanted, implied by the church.

    So, apology guy, meditate on this for half an hour. Ask God to show you the pain of someone who was raised Christian, had a strong faith, sang Jesus Love Me, but seen such hostility from within and without the church, and felt such shame that they planned out their suicide. Sit with it for 1/2 an hour. Now imagine that for years.

    I then watched friends die of HIV and AIDS while some people like Falwell claimed it was God’s Judgement. There was no compassion, and even experienced people in the church getting in a joke or two.

    At the same time, churches started rejecting gays but from the church. So, i had enough. I left, but never left God.

    And not until my 40s was I finally able to learn to love myself. I’m 56 today. That’s a lot to be burdened with. And I learned, yes,I’m gay, and God loves me as I am. And I finally love myself, and for the first time. Can love my neighbor because I love myself.

    You don’t think I’m a Christian bc I’m gay? Believe what you wish, but I know better. I’ve got the scars to prove it.

    Don’t approve of gay marriage? Again, I don’t care, but denying others legal rights that you enjoy is not only not loving your neighbor, but dishonest.

    Do I need your acceptance? Nah, bruh. I’m good.
    Do I need your apology? I’ve forgiven already, but understand, when I pass by you on the street, preaching love to me, but saying I’m a sinner or broken for being gay, misquote Scripture that implies I should be killed, then say, “it’s God’s Word, not mine,” the scars still hurt. The memories come back. And I see you as a mouth piece of Satan, who uses you to lead people to end their own life.

    I’ve learned what true love is, prayed for it repeatedly, just that. The street preacher is amazed that while I don’t use or quote the bible like a court of law, I am well verse in the Scripture. and have a solid relationship with God that demonstrates fruit of the Spirit, rather than an obsession with how others should live,

    So, I hear your apology. I hope it makes you feel less guilty, but I’ve learned to be very mistrustful of wolves who come in sheep’s clothing, and before you ask my forgiveness, understand the depth and severity of the harm that was and still is caused.

  63. You started out okay… and then you decided we’re unclean and sinful for existing. So even these words of “love” are in truth words of condemnation.

  64. This is a good start and was done in sincerity. For a person that believes being gay is a sin, he's incredibly progressive and wants to be loving and inclusive. I admire that, even though my theology is different. I hope gay people can see that this move is in the direction of love.

  65. God loves us all, just as we are. Sin has natural consequences. I don't believe a loving creator condemns gay people any more than God condemns me for being born in Indiana.
