Which is why those on this thread who have condemned those with sinful tendencies towards homosexual attraction are flat wrong.

Becoming like Christ is a journey. The forgiven fall sometimes and Lucifer then whispers in their ear that they've failed and lost forgiveness. That's not true. God doesn't care if you stumble.

God sees man's heart and knows if he's truly repentant. Stumbling on the journey doesn't mean it's over.
