Repent and turn away from sin

Franklin Graham posted this on Facebook today:

A message to the gay & lesbian community. A recent news report shows Islamists throwing gays off rooftops and then stoning them when they hit the ground. Does this sound like a peaceful religion to you, as the president has said? I do not support the gay and lesbian lifestyle–I believe homosexuality is a sin as the Bible teaches. But I love gay and lesbian people, and I want them to know that God loves them too and He is willing and eager to forgive sin—all sin—however we must repent and turn from our sin and believe on the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

I agree with Graham. I love LGBT people but do not condone the lifestyle, as I do not condone heterosexual lifestyles outside of marriage. Sin is sin, whether heterosexual sex outside of the marriage of one man and one woman, or homosexual sex. God loves all people and wants them to be saved. Jesus died on the cross and rose again to fulfill God’s wrath against sin and to offer every single person eternal life. But you must repent and turn from sin and believe in the name of Jesus as Lord and the Son of God.
