Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!" Isaiah 5:20 NASB
Therefore, ridding yourselves of falsehood, speak truth each one of you with his neighbor, because we are parts of one another. Be angry, and yet do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and do not give the devil an opportunity. The one who steals must no longer steal; but rather he must labor, producing with his own hands what is good, so that he will have something to share with the one who has need. Let no unwholesome word come out of your mouth, but if there is any good word for edification according to the need of the moment, say that, so that it will give grace to those who hear. Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. All bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and slander must be removed from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, compassionate, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you."
This in Ephesians ties in directly with Romans 12.
We shouldn't stay in the sins we came to Christ to escape! We should never encourage anyone else to do that either.
Beware of any so-called church that embraces things such as homosexuality as if it were ok.
Beware of any so-called church that places people in roles they are not to be in according to the Scriptures. Some may not agree with this but your argument is with God, not me. I write what I am told to write. There are to be no homosexual pastors. There are to be no women pastors. There is to be no acceptance as normal what God has said isn't to be allowed.
Evil is deceptive by its nature. Evil will do whatever it can to thrive and be accepted.
Evil will even attempt to make you feel guilty for doing that which God says is good.
Be careful of your walk in this world. We have God's eternal Word to live by and to guide us. We should never make excuses for sin. We are told what to do should we encounter someone caught in sin. Point them back to Jesus.
