What does a good shepherd do when they notice that the flock is incomplete?
I think I know where you are going with this. The lost sheep are the gay Christians that have left the church. Let me share this: I am really impressed, and has dawned on me lately, that tradictional Christians do not believe that there are homosexual people; that some people chose to wander into sexual sin (having sex with someone of the same sex). It's believed that any sexual behavior between those of the same sex is a sin. My note: It's true that the bible does not mention anything about homosexual people, but does that mean gay people are invisible? That God only meant for male and female to have sex. Wow!
"The shepherd is in charge of noticing" -- Yes! Love this. May more and more shepherds give their attention to those who are missing. Thanks Colby.
