I posted this in another section and only recieved a few replies .
So I'm looking for more input.
Someone very close to me that knows, and will tell anyone that he believes with all his heart that Jesus Christ is the son of GOD and died for our sins and was raised from the dead.
The problem is I asked him why he hasn't recieved Christ yet seeing that he is a believer.
He told me he didn't think he deserved to be saved.
I told him none of us 'deserve " to be saved ,,that none of us could ever EARN the gift of salvation.
I told him it is a GIFT from GOD because HE loves us.
Then this person told me he was gay.
I told him GOD hates all sin ,but HE loves the sinner.
But now this person says he doesn't think being baptized is right for him because he is gay.
So ----NOW WHAT ????
I told him since he believes and knows who Jesus Christ is that he should still be baptized .
He can deal with the gay issue afterwards.
Can anyone help me out with what to say to this person?
