Welcoming [Pro-Homosexual] "Churches" Plan to Crash IFI Efforts

The Chicago Coalition of Welcoming Churches is urging its followers to crash IFI's press event, and plans to exhibiting banners, advertise pro-homosexual churches, and pass out 'God loves Us ALL" buttons." The pro-homosexual Coalition also plans to counter IFI's peaceful picket July 22 in front of Steamworks, a gay sex club. See IFI article here, including an excerpt from CCWC's e-alert.

Why isn't tolerance afforded to Christians?

God does love us all, but he also demands transforming faith in Jesus Christ. I Cor 6:9-11 says:

Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God?

DO NOT BE DECEIVED: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolators, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor ... will inherit the kingdom of God.

And such were some of you! But you were washed... sanctified... justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

The gospel offer to be washed and sanctified and justified must be extended to the homosexual community - without condoning sinful behavior.
