This was very good:

Quote: " I see homosexuality as one of the many sins. So, I don’t separate one sin from the other. What we need to do is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. And Christ says come the way you are. And when you accept you’re a sinner, then the Holy Spirit works through you and you become a new creation; you can change,” he said."

What traditional Christians and Methodists are up against is people who say they have no need to change and let the Holy Spirit make them more holy. They want to continue their old sinful life and pretend they have no need of repentance or change. They need to come to grips with the fact that Jesus began His ministry with the words "Repent, because the Kingdom of heaven has come near!" Matthew 4:17. There is no way around the words of Jesus.

   Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove "When Jesus said, 'I have come that they might have life, and have it more abundantly' in John 10:10, he wasn’t thinking about a victory for those who have used religion to fight back against the gains of the civil rights movement. Jesus was inviting all of us to work together for the vision at the heart of that movement — a beloved community where all people created in God’s image can thrive."

– Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, writing in "The Evangelical Case Against Judge Kavanaugh" in the Sept. 3 New York Times.
