If I become a Christian, will I be a hypocrite for still loving my gay friends?
Christians are not hypocrites
Rick Brentlinger Answers
Thanks for asking such a timely question. I'm glad to know you are interested in becoming a Christian. Getting saved
is the most important decision you will ever make.
Two thousand years ago, God stepped out of eternity into time, to pay for your sins, my sins and the sins of the whole world. Because Jesus died and paid for all our sins and because God accepted Jesus' payment for all our sins, signifying His acceptance by raising Jesus from the dead, we can be saved. When we repent of our sins
and trust Jesus
as our Savior, God saves us and gives us eternal life.
Now to answer your question about being a hypocrite. No, God will not consider you a hypocrite for loving your gay and lesbian friends. God loves your GLBTQ friends and God saves gays and lesbians too.
I disagree with your friend who believes that Christianity is a religion of hypocrites. Christians are human so none of us are perfect. We all make mistakes. Sometimes we don't live up to our potential in Christ. But genuine Christians try every day to live the way Jesus wants us to live.

I'm just looking into becoming a Christian and I have a friend who calls the religion a religion of hypocrites. I can't help but wonder:
If I become a Christian and I'm still friends with my gay friends and accept them as who they are, does that make me a hypocrite?
I think homosexuality is natures way of keeping the population down, so I cannot be against it but this has been driving me nuts! Please help.
