If I see a group of people as my enemy, or as the ones who are messing up my world, I will likely do very little to create justice for them when obvious injustice happens to them. My unspoken thought might be that they deserve it or I might even feel a twinge of satisfaction at their misfortune. But Jesus messes it all up, as he tends to do, and refuses to accept the invitation to become mutual enemies. His actions declare, “This is how it is in MY kingdom – opponents are made friends and enemies are loved.” So I make a conscious decision that LGBT people will NEVER be my enemy. I will not see them through that lens because they’re too valuable. And because they’re not my enemy, my heart is moved to create justice for the most oppressed and vulnerable in their community.
We often times think that the Gospel doesn't have anything to offer gay people. If they can't become straight, they can't have a fulfilling life, right? The Bible would say something much different! Life isn't found in relationships, people, or marriage....it's found in Jesus Christ. True, abundant life comes from having a heart reconciled back to God and living in relationship to him, not in having straight attractions.
