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.

Notable Quotes   

     "Fundamentalist Christians have moved the theological needle so far to the right that the Gospel is said by them to be a 'progressive agenda.' It's not – it's the Gospel. We must keep preaching Jesus' message of the Kingdom of God (over against the kingdoms of this world) rooted in love (not legalism) and aimed toward reconciliation (not division). The Pharisees alleged Jesus' message was a 'liberal agenda.' It wasn't – it was the Gospel."

– The Rev. Dr. Steve Harper in a Facebook post.
