    • Romans 3:23, 5:12&19, 6:23; Ephesians 2:1-3
  • Gender is a social construct (so the most loving thing you can do for someone is go along with their preferred identity, name, and pronouns)
    • Genesis 1:27, Genesis 2:18-23; Ephesians 5:21-33; Titus 2:1-6
  • A loving God would not send a good person to hell for eternal punishment.
    • Matthew 25:46; John 3:17-18; 2 Peter 3:9; Revelation 20:15
  • Premarital sex is OK if both are in love and consent.
