On gay marriage debate

I found it so refreshing reading the recent letter by Alric Lindsay in your Sept. 20 issue regarding the truth about the same-sex marriage issue.

I recall that about 20 years ago this matter was being discussed in the local churches, and I wonder how many LGBT people those churches have managed to win for the Lord since then.

I always ask the priceless question: If we believe that we were created in the likeness and image of God, Jesus Christ is His Son, He died for us and rose again and that Jesus is the High Priest of His church and He did not condemn anyone, to which human being did He give authority to condemn His image and His likeness?

Reading about the life of Jesus, He did not hang out with the church (synagogue) people. Was it not the sinners that He associated with?

Thank you for allowing me to comment on this matter.
