    to be honest, this "aberration", if you like, runs in my family.
    Somebody said that's because we were Roman Catholics, then, and, therefore, worshipped idols, whatever that means.

    One aunt was out and out lesbian, died one. Another had an on-again, off-again type of relationship. I suspect a niece to be lesbian, too. Had an uncle who was homo, and a nephew who is homo.

    But I love them all.
    And they love me, too, except when we talk about the Lord, and I tell them exactly what the Bible says, no holds barred, no apologies.

    I see nothing positive in causing friction or problems in pointing out what the Bible says. They can read the Bible and can interpret for themselves. I believe loving them and telling and showing through our lives the good news of Jesus will do more than argument. Honey draws more flies than vinegar. Let God show them the way once they accept him into their lives ... if they have not done so already.

    Remember Christ when he said, "Let him who is without sin cast the first stone." Cast love not stones.

    I see everything positive about pinoys stand and belief in Scripture, and telling them what it says. Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of Christ.

    Keep telling the folks there that are homosexuals what Bible says, and keep living for Him, and loving them of course.

    I'm sure when you share Scripture it's in love, it's not your fault it is convicting to them, and how their spirits react to it.

    So do many lost people. They're no different.

    Good thing Jesus told us "Words" and just didn't live a good life, expecting people to flock to Him only for that.

    It's when He Spoke that things happened. You do the same thing friend.

    Pino Bro.....I do love your honesty about sin. I can say the same thing about my family being a bunch of alcholics. Brother, Father, Grandfather, Wife, Sister In Law, Mother In Law. They all know what the bible says & they know its a sin. why pad it & why shrink away from it. woe, is this intervention training? :smilewinkgrin:

    Nothing. All you can do is present the gospel and if they won't heed it, you've done what you are supposed to do. Perhaps seeing you as a constant witness will soften their hearts.

    How do you plan on confronting a relative, or child, who is having premarital or extramarital s3x with someone?

    Because it should be the same response. If you tolerate the hetero infidedilty than you need to be consistent with the homo practice.

    Or any sinful practice for that matter....Gluttony, Alcoholism, drug addiction, infidelity, Homosexuality, Greed etc. Psychology can put names to it like Sociopath, psychopath, Addiction etc but it really comes down to sin nature & sinning.
