Do Christians Hate People Who Identify as Gay or Lesbian?
Is it the case that Christians hate homosexuals? Many people in our culture think the answer is obvious: yes.

Though there are many mistakes believers have made that have contributed to that impression, I don’t believe that most believers I speak to hold hatred in their hearts. Here’s a short video that Summit Ministries released where I discuss that concern.
