Dr. Brown, how much more love do we need to bleed for these people more than all other types of strugglers with other sins? The reason we need to keep empathizing with the LGBT people more than others is because they want to celebrate abominations, while other people recognize their sins and are ashamed of them, or at least admit that they are in sin. These people want to force all of society to celebrate sin with them.

Once again a superb article but I have a question for you. To your comment, "while God alone is the judge of every professing Christian, be that person gay or straight", I ask what is your Scriptural reference for that? It seems to me that 1st Cor. 5 would say just the opposite. Would you say the same for anyone who professes to be a Christian but says there are many ways to God? Or anyone who professes to be a Christian but openly touts another form of immorality with NO desire to confess or repent or even says it's ok? What about all the Scriptures that talk about the one who practices sin not inheriting the Kingdom? What about the clear statement in 1st Cor. 6:9, Rev. 21:8 and other "hammer verses"? What about Matt. 7:21-23? To that I would say I agree wholeheartedly with Charles Spurgeon when he said, "“Do not suppose that the Gospel is magnified or God glorified by going to the worldlings and telling them that they may be saved at this moment by simply accepting Christ as their Savior, while they are wedded to their idols, and their hearts are still in love with sin. IF I DO SO I TELL THEM A LIE, PERVERT THE GOSPEL , INSULT CHRIST, AND TURN THE GRACE OF GOD INTO LASCIVIOUSNESS.” ”There MUST also be a WILLINGNESS to obey the Lord in all His commandments. It is a shameful thing for a man to profess discipleship and yet refuse to learn his Lord's will upon certain points, or even dare to decline obedience when that will is known. How can a man be a disciple of Christ when he openly lives in disobedience to Him?” “If the professed convert distinctly and deliberately declares that he knows his Lord's will but does not mean to attend to it, you are not to pamper his presumption, but it is your duty to assure him that he is not saved. Has not the Lord said, "He that taketh not up his cross, and cometh after Me, cannot be My disciple"? Mistakes as to what the Lord's will may be are to be tenderly corrected, but anything like willful disobedience is fatal; to tolerate it would be treason to Him that sent us. Jesus MUST be received as King as well as Priest; and where there is any hesitancy about this, the foundation of godliness is not yet laid.” (emphasis mine) Now I realize with regard to the last one that folks like Isaac would claim they don't know their sin to be sin but I included it because I believe Spurgeon's "it is your duty to assure him that he is not saved" would apply because the others are applicable.
