I realize many people believe being gay is a sin, and it is a repeated sin. (But who doesn't repeatedly sin?) And many people believe that gay people will be judged by God based on this one sin during their lives.
But what about the other aspects of their lives. My sister for example, has dedicated her life to working with emotionally damaged children and their families. She has dealt with kids who have no homes, are in foster homes and with kids who have been disowned by their family for being gay. She has spent countless hours in hopsitals when a child has been beaten or runaway and then found, or was a witness to their mother being killed. She has counseled family after family to help deal with a child has severe mental disorders.
The list is endless, and that doesn't even touch on who she is as a friend or sister or Auntie. She is a beautiful person.
So, what do you think she should be judged on?

quote: all sin is the same, so says the scripture.
What scripture says is that all wrongdoing is sin, not that all sin is the same. Scripture says that some sin is greater than other sin, in Jesus' own words:
"You would have no power over me if it had not been given to you from above. For this reason the one who handed me over to you has the greater sin."
and the bible also says
1 John 5:16
If anyone sees his brother sinning, if the sin is not deadly, he should pray to God and he will give him life. This is only for those whose sin is not deadly. There is such a thing as deadly sin, about which I do not say that you should pray. All wrongdoing is sin, but there is sin that is not deadly.
There is a clear difference between deadly sin and not deadly sin.
