A quick truth

I always love it when Christians are labeled as intolerant, exclusionary, hypocrites... by definition, as a Christian, I am saying that I am a sinner, guilty of things that the commandments of a holy God says are wrong. ( as you said, be it murder, lying, adultery, homosexuality, whatever)... I am openly admitting that I have these issues and problems, and that because of them, I am rightfully hell-bound short of the redemption of a Savior in Christ who looks upon my broken, sinful flesh, and accepts me, exactly as I am, no questions asked, if I will simply turn from those things I do that are wrong (by His definition, not mine) and follow Him...

The Christian faith is all-inclusive insofar as ALL who call upon the name of Christ will be saved... it is tolerant in that the ground at the foot of the cross is even, we have ALL sinned and fall short of the glory of God... We are called to accept all people, regardless of their sins, and share the live of Christ with them... 

Our only condition is an admission that all people do wrong, and that, if there is a heaven, then the God of that heaven gets to make the rules on who gets in, and who doesn't... and His rules say that Christ is the only way, truth, and life that leads to an eternity spent in Heaven
