Do all Pastors think that if you are LGBTW+ you automatically go to hell??

KatMon01:

No not all Pastors are that way. Only some, just like in everything else. Some are against it and some don't mind it. It just depends on the person honestly.

KatMon01:

Anyhow it says you should love each other all equally. And that no one is perfect and even so if you accept Jesus as your lord/savior then you are forgiven all sins and such. So there. I hope this helps?

If by referring to "pastors" you mean those who adhere to Christianity, then yes. The Bible expresses that God deems homosexuality a sin. From Leviticus Chapter 18 Verse 22: " You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination." You implies a man, having intercourse with a man. This could also be seen as a man 'acting' as a woman, with a man. The verse also applies to women, so that covers gays, lesbians, and transgenders. Queer is an umbrella term for non heterosexual individuals, so they are covered by that verse as well.

That's the scripture and doctrine, but you'll find that pastors treat LGBTQ+ individuals with differing attitudes. Some can be hostile. Some can be welcoming. The former in my opinion, is both naive and scriptural incorrect. Whilst God in the Old Testament treated sinners more harshly, it's generally accepted that Jesus sets the modern approach to Christianity. As @Katmon01 said, Jesus loved everyone equally. Even though Christianity may consider homosexuality a sin, it doesn't condone violence or vitriol of any kind.

It does not matter what your Pastor thinks. It only matters what the Bible says.

Hero:

1 Corinthians 1:9 - Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived : neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor EFFEMINATE, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

Hero:

Females are not exempt from this scripture by the way.

Also, if you have to pick one option which one will you pick? 1) Christianity is a monotheistic religion. 2) Jesus(Pbuh) is God.

KatMon01:

Monotheistic means one God so I'd pick that one because God and Jesus are two different entities. Jesus is the only begotten Son of God. So they are separate. Not sure if this is the answer you wanted/needed but it's what I'd pick.

Nnesha:

well, first of all, there is nowhere in the bible Jesus(pbuh) says I'm the "begotten" son of God, but that's another topic... I won't say much here. I'm glad you picked the first option, so if Christianity is a monotheistic religion then you can't put Jesus(peace be upon him) in the same position as GOD. He can't accept or reject the deeds. Also, If you do something illegal in this world you will be responsible for your action. Does not matter if you're a son/relatives of a president or a lawyer. So, is there a guarantee that you will get away with anything by just accepting that Jesus is the son of God(assuming this for 1 second) in the next world.
