My question is if a homosexual gets saved and he doesn’t quit his life style and still says Jesus his savior, is he saved? I hear so many different things but none of them thinks a homosexual has a chance? May God continue to bless your ministry. Thank you
Should a Believer continue in sin? “God forbid” (Romans 6:1,2). But to some degree we all continue to commit sin. The truth of the gospel however, is that we are no longer in our sins. We are “in Christ.” And “where sin abounded, grace did much more abound” (Romans 5:20,21).
Don’t let anyone’s actions take away from the truth of the Gospel. We don’t always know if a person has really trusted in the gospel. And since Salvation is by “Grace” (Ephesians 2:8,9), we cannot judge a person’s salvation based on their works. God knows those who have believed. And there are Believers who have succumb to the flesh and committed every type of sin. But that is what Jesus Christ died for – I Corinthians 15:3,4. And according to Romans 3:21-28 the Believer is given “the righteousness of God” and therefore declared righteous by God – Justified! That was given him “freely by” God’s “grace.” Not deserved and not earned. It was “through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.” Meaning a Believer is freed from the debt of sin because of the cross. It was there that “propitiation” was made to God in that Jesus Christ’s blood is a full satisfying payment for the sins of all mankind, satisfying the justice of a Holy God.
None of these verses change because of our behavior. Romans 8:31-39 will always be true for the Believer in God’s grace.
