"You Pick" (Sermon by Jason Bedell, 2015) Start listening at 35:33

"If anyone LGBT walked through the doors of the church...and said, 'I know my need for a savior; I need to be baptized,' 100 times out of 100 I would baptize them."

"Does The Church Hate Gays?" (Sermon by Jason Bedell, 2012) Start listening at 31:53

"While acting on same-sex attraction is a sin, it's just a sin. It's *just* a sin. Bringing things up here while not addressing everything else is ridiculous, shameful, and wrong."

"If you have same sex attraction, Jesus calls you to not act in it. And I know that's not a popular thing, but it's what the Bible says."
