Don't confuse love with forgiveness

Let's all agree: God loves everyone. He loves the adulterer, fornicator, liar, LGBT people, and the list goes on and on.

He loves them, but don't confuse love with forgiveness.

He gave everyone free will, thus everyone has the choice to either live by his word (the whole word -- you can't pick and chose what to obey and what not to obey) or to express their free will and lead a sinful life.

Living by his word leads to everlasting life in heaven, and living a sinful life leads you to hell. God loves you, but he leaves the choice to you.

You chose your lifestyle, but let me live mine.

As Gulfport Mayor Billy Hewes said, "The door of tolerance should swing both ways."

We would not need so many laws if everybody respected the other person's rights, but some LGBT people insist that Christians accept and validate their sinful lifestyle, which is why we need HB1523.

Be blessed.
