This is somewhat disturbing.  I would not suggest sexual sin be grounds
for refused entry in a church.  I do not see how calling it "approval of
sin" by allowing those seeking forgiveness of their sin.  There are many
folks who do not understand yet they are living in sin.  I understand
you did not say this, but when speaking on this, I think it is very
important for pre-Christians to know they are welcome.  Love the sinner
not the sin.

I often hear professed Christians being quite abrasive when speaking
truths.  I'm not disagreeing with what they are saying... just
disagreeing with their delivery.  We must not feed solid food to
pre-Christians expecting them to fully understand.  See what Hebrews
5:11-14 says.
