What would you do?

I would like to pose a question to everyone out there. I am just curious how people would handle this scenario.

Two guys walk into your church service holding hands or with their arms around each other. They are not being intimate such as making out or flaunting their homosexuality. But they are not hiding it either. They are greeted and handed a bulletin and then find a seat for the service. They continue to hold hands or have their arms around each other. What would you do?

I guess you would treat them like any other visitor...

I'm thinking about the encounters that people had with Jesus... it wasn't until after they had a real enounter with Jesus, that He could say to them, "Go... and sin no more".

Bottom line... Meeting a christian isn't gonna change you... going to church isn't gonna change you... going to a small group isn't gonna change you... It is not until you have had an encounter with the risen Jesus... that changes you!

Like any other visitors... our goal should be the same... to lead them to a place where they can encounter the risen Lord... once that happens, the Lord will provide direction in what the next steps will be.

I have to agree with Lonnie. I would probably have to watch my expression and make sure it wasn't one of shock or anything. I think it's definitely important to show them that they are welcome.

Most gays know that Christianity condemns being gay. They are just more honest with their struggle. Afterall, how many times have you seen an alcoholic wear a shirt that says "I'm an alchi" or couples wear matching shirts that say, "Yeah, we're engaged, but we're having premarital sex too." At least they would be becoming before God honestly... which is a lot better than most people.
