Should you bash or hate gays and lesbians? Ans. No. Why? God is love. If you say that you're a Christian, think of what it means, C-h-r-i-s-t: Christ, Jesus; i-a-n: like. Put Christian in its biblical definition: CHRISTIAN (Gk. Christianos; from Lat. christianus “belonging to Christ”). An appellation for one who believes in Jesus Christ (Gk. Christos), the Son of God and Redeemer of mankind. The term was first applied to the disciples in cosmopolitan Antioch after Paul and Barnabas had taught there for about one year (Acts 11:26). At Acts 26:28 Luke records Paul as asking Agrippa if he believed the prophet, to which the king retorts: “In a short time you think to make me a Christian!” Peter observes that to suffer (1 Pet. 4:16) and to remember Christ’s own suffering on the cross (2:21–25; 4:1) is part of being “Christian.”
