Thank you, Quazi!
No disagreement about church being where sinners belong. However, what I have stated has strong scriptural backing. Below are just a few scriptures written regarding this very subject:
In the gospel of John, Jesus told the woman caught in adultery,"...neither do I condemn you. go and leave you life of sin".
Paul writes in Romans 6, "Shall we continue living in sin so that grace may abound? Certainly not! How can we who died to sin live any longer in it?"
Paul also writes in his first epistle to Corinth, "But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people"
Doesn't sound like we ought to be too accepting of those who INSIST on living in sin does it?
What ever happened to "love the sinner but hate the sin"?
