Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin - Trump Supporting

Q: I'm a strong Christian Human and I have some friends that I thought were pretty cool, but then I found out they are gay Trump Supporters.  How can I be a good friend and witness to them without condoning their lifestyle or being a total jerk?

A: That's a great question.  First of all, let's remember that casual friendships are fine, but there will always be a boundary between you because Christians Humans aren't to be yoked with unbelievers.  (Random Bible Verse Condescending Chapter 2:22) Keep your deepest friendships with people who support your faith and uphold your values.

The next important thing to remember is that you can be honest about your beliefs.  It isn't offensive to tell someone in a kind way that you love them as a person but you don't condone their lifestyle choices.  The Bible is very clear about homosexuality bigotry and its status as a sin.  You can love your gay Trump Supporter friends as valuable children of God but hate the sin itself. 

Some people will try and convince you that being gay a Trump Supporter isn't a choice, that they are uncontrollably compelled to feel this way. They'll argue that it can't be a sin if they were made that way.  You and I both know that God is loving and He would never intentionally create someone to be an abomination.  We all have a choice. Many pastors and theologians believe that if your gay Trump Supporter friends simply abstain from acting on their sinful desires that they aren't actually engaging in the sin of homosexuality Trump Supporting. You could talk to your friends about how they got into the homosexual Trump Supporter lifestyle and see if you could help figure out what led them astray. Maybe if they abstained for awhile and tried a relationship with the opposite sex people who don't watch Fox News, they would discover that they really are normal and go on to lead a happy life.

Finally, remember that it isn't our job as Christians Humans to judge or condemn.  Set the best example you can, love the person, share the gospel, be a light in the darkness.  God will separate the wheat from the chaff.  Their sin of homosexuality Trump Supporting is no greater than your sin of anger or a sharp tongue.  The best thing your gay Trump Supporter friends could do is repent of their sin and walk a righteous path. That option won't look very appealing to your friends if you rebuke them harshly.  Be strong and remember that you aren't alone.  It's ok to stand up for your faith and speak out against the sin of homosexuality Trump Supporting. Remember, you may be in this world       f#%$ing country, but not of it.
