My brother wants to get "married" and adopt children: What do I do?


Full Question

I have a gay brother who has fallen from the faith. He has dated several guys over the last few years and wants to get "married" and adopt children in the future. I'm pretty certain that if I tell him I don't support him, it will ruin our relationship and create problems within the family. What should I do?

Answer

If you were attracted to a married woman and were in love with her, would you choose her over obeying the Lord or would you choose the Lord over her? It all boils down to how much we love him, doesn’t it? He chose nothing over us. He willingly spent himself on us to the point of dying. This is the conversation you need to have with your brother. You both are in my prayers.
