Love 'Em - Just As They Are

Even though some of Christ's immature followers refuse to be inclusive, God's word teaches that he himself welcomes penitent, baptized believers into his church regardless of their background or circumstances. He pays no attention to family connections, socio-economic class, education, race, nationality, gender or the kind of life they used to live. All who submit to the Lordship of Jesus Christ through faith and obedience can become "fellow citizens with God's people and members of God's household."

Christianity: A Divine Paradox

Excluding someone whom Jesus has included is a sin, and so is including a person whom God has excluded from his family. Whether Jesus includes or excludes people from God's spiritual family, he still challenges us to love and reach out to them in kindness.
