How a straight Christian should approach a homosexual

It should go something along the lines like this:

"I was always taught to believe homosexuality was wrong because of what the Bible says. I'll be honest in saying that because it personally doesn't affect me, I haven't looked closely at how some Scriptures have been interpreted in the way they have. If you believe the Bible or not I'm still obligated to love you as myself because Jesus commanded me to. I can't deny you marriage because I won't deny it for myself. I won't defame you with using terms like "lifestyle" or "agenda" or use words to demean you because it's un-Christ like for me to speak to you that way, again, that's not loving you as myself. The truth is the Church has gone way overboard with homosexuality and it should repent of that. I know I don't have such a strong reaction to someone who's divorced or living a life God wouldn't be happy with, so maybe I do have a bias I'm not facing. I want to be like my Savior more and more everyday and that can only happen if I repent of how I've been with this."

Would you be open to guest posting this on my blog??? If you are, I don't know how a guest post works because I am not technologically savvy, so you would have to walk me through how that works! I would love this on my blog, to share with my viewers! & also AMEN!

I'd love to exchange a guest posting, you'll write on mine and visa versa. You can link THIS post by highlighting and click 'copy' on my http address at the very top, go into your own blog like you're going to write a new post, write an intro for me, highlight a word, and click on 'link' in the tool bar, a separate window will pop up, paste my http that you just copied on where it says "Web Address" and press O.K.

I've never done guest posting before. There are two ways we can do this.
You send me what you want to write by e-mail, I introduce you and maybe write a little about who you are. You say something about being a guest poster, say what you want and I that's it. If you want to have free reign on my blog (like if you also want to add a pic) we can do this: http://smallbusiness.chron.com/set-up-guest-post-blogspot-48729.html

I'll leave it up to you on how you want t do this.

Fabulous! Okay so I copied the above address, I will give it a go & let you know how it works. Also I'll send you a post and we'll go from there. How can I send it to you via email??? I know that sounds silly but I don't think that I have your email address? Also I'll try sending it through the http: that you have left here. I'll try???

I'm excited, I've never done this before!

Be Blessed!
Tanya
