letter to SBC
Great job, well written. I am a recovering Southern Baptist. I am the lesbian daughter of a minister, and deacon. When I came out to my father and mother, my father told me that I was deceived, unsaved, lied to, and not very smart. He told me that if my two daughters succeeded in life, it would be in spite of me, not because of me. He said that I am not welcome in his home any longer if my wife comes with me. If this is the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, no thanks, I don't want it.
I think however, that Jesus would have never said anything like that. I think he would have climbed on that cross, died for me, and been resurrected just so I could have eternal life. My Bible says, "[B]Whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." It doesn't qualify anything.
