Sometimes we forget that the church is meant to be a hospital for the sick and not a country club for the elite. Jesus made this clear in Matthew 9:12, On hearing this, Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick.” We must be accepting of everyone in the church no matter how much we may not agree with their choices in life. There is a difference between tolerance and acceptance. We are called to accept everyone who needs our help while not tolerating their sin. This does not mean to shun or shame them, but we love them even when we don’t agree with their choices. In the end, it is God’s job to judge or not.
