I cannot begin to tell you how grieved I am. Grieved about a statement recently released by a nationally known and respected pastor who, in response to a question by a parent asking for advice on how to treat an adult child who has just come out as gay…

Yes! Shun them! Shun them even to the point of isolating them, separating themselves from their child, turning the child over to Satan (No, I’m not kidding. Nor am I exaggerating), and refusing even to eat with him or her.
Would someone tell me please who Jesus ever shunned?
Is this REALLY what Jesus taught in Matthew 18?
