    Love is indeed better than approval, but you have mixed up the definitions of each.



    Loved them so much, in fact, that He would refuse to simply accept their self-destructive behavior, as opposed to insisting that it change. He would not "appreciate the differences" he had with someone who thought adultery was acceptable.



    Jesus defined marriage as a union between a man and a woman that shouldn't be broken (Matthew 19:4-9) and then prescribed how those unable to live out that standard should live (Matthew 19:10-12). The sinfulness of homosexual conduct wasn't a question in any crowd he addressed, and so there is no reason for him to have pulled it out specifically (he also, for example, never specifically mentioned rape). When the apostles were writing to Greek, Latin, or other non-Hebrew audiences, they did have to contend with a culture in which homosexual conduct was accepted, which is why they did have to discuss it specifically.
    Meh, I am not Christian. I do not interpret it the same way you do.
