Does God Hate Homosexuals?

As Christians we claim to love the Lord with all of our hearts and would never do anything to disappoint Him or put Him down or insult Him. If that is the case then why are so many of us calling them names all the time although we may not be aware of it. We need to be able to distinguish the person from the sin.

What Does the Bible Say About While We Were Still Sinners? But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life”. So who are we to judge? It’s like the pot calling the kettle black. There’s only one person that was perfect and that was Jesus Christ.

By this verse alone the obvious answer is God does not hate anyone including homosexuals but God is very clear about how he feels about sin. Unfortunately too many people put everything together which is wrong. My grandson is homosexual and is married to another man. But he understands fully that while I love him and would do anything for him, I feel completely differently about the lifestyle he has chosen. Although a lot of people say that is not a choice.

Growing up as a Quaker I was always taught that everybody was created by God and deserves our full respect regardless of their color, appearance or lifestyle. If somebody behaves in a negative manner we must realize that it is not the person but the lifestyle or actions. If somebody lives in a way that we disagree with and is a lifestyle we may hate, it is not the person him or herself.

Whenever we call somebody a name, put them down, or make fun of them in any way we may not realize it but we are doing the same thing to God. Matthew 25:40 states  “…Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, {even} the least {of them,} you did it to Me”.  The next time we think about calling anybody a name whether racial or not we should think about this passage from the Bible and what it means.

The reality is that all people are separated from God.

  • “No one is righteous. No one seeks after God”, (Romans 3:10-11).
  • “Every person is naturally alienated from God and an enemy against Him”, (Colossians 1:21).
  • “Every person is by birth the child of wrath and the child of disobedience”, (Ephesians 2:2-2).
  • “Despite our sin God in His love gives the offer of salvation freely to all. God in His love gives salvation freely to all who trust Jesus for forgiveness. God does not exclude homosexual from His grace any more than he excludes those who were once murderers, blasphemers or persecutors of Christ”, (1 Timothy 1:12-14).

In conclusion there are a couple other quotes to think about…

  • 2 Peter 3:9 -NASV
    The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some count slackness; but is longsuffering to you-ward, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
  • James 4:11-12
    Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. There is only one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor?
  • Ephesians 4:32
    Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
  • Colossians 3:12-14
    Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
