You will do well to avoid these things.
I think you are correct in a sense. Unlike some people, I don't believe homosexuality, or eating "strangled" meat (now that I thinka bout it maybe that was just code for a BJ
) is going to necessarily see anyone turned away at the gate. It shouldn't, any more than some of my sexually immoral (adulterous) thoughts should keep me away. We all fall short.
Which is maybe why I tend to be a Sola fide guy.
