What is the Most Important Issue in the Bible?

Progressive 06

“If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.” 1 Corinthians 13:1

I chose this for number 6 because there are six verses in the Bible about homosexuality. SIX. Compare this to the number of verses about greed, about lust, and about divorce, and more important… the countless verses about love. (There is a count, but I’ll go with “lots.”)

Does God hate gay people? Only if He hates greedy people, selfish people, angry people, lazy people, lustful people… (maybe you get the idea). Is homosexuality a sin? I’ve read about it. I’ve prayed about it. I decided I’ll leave that up to theologians.

I am on the side of gays.

I am on the side of love.
