Erica Campbell on transgender and gay community: ‘Sin is sin’
During a recent press conference, Erica Campbell was asked about her thoughts on the gay and transgender community, and she didn’t hold back.
“I believe sin is sin and it exists and God forgives it just like everything else,” she said frankly.
But with that established, she was quick to point out that this didn’t mean people had a free pass to judge anyone.
“I know there’s a lot of different conversations about the origins and the why’s and the how’s and I wish I had the answers to it, but I do not. But what I do know is that the Bible says that God so loved the world — it didn’t say the heterosexual or the homosexual; it didn’t say the Christian, the saved or the unsaved. It said for God so loved the world that he gave his only son, that whosoever should believe in him, should not perish but have everlasting life,” she said.
She also had a message for people who try to “force” change on those in the transgender and gay communities.
“Keep sharing, keep loving, keep opening the doors of our churches, keep embracing and let God do the changing. I think a lot of times we try to be God. We try to make the change. Everybody has an issue. Sometimes peoples [issue] is a little more flamboyant than others. Maybe yours is lying and we can’t see your issue. We all have something to work on…My job is to love, not to judge.”
