Summary

Homosexuality And Gender

It is hard to imagine a more polarizing and personal point of contact between the church and today’s culture than the issue of gender and homosexuality. We all have gay friends, some are family members, and we really like them. There is absolutely no  pleasure found in disagreeing with a friend or family member on such a personal issue.  It would be so much easier just to roll with the mainline churches, or the secular culture and call every behaviour or choice sacred, without exception. There are so many other areas we can agree with culture; that racism is evil, that wealth should be fairly distributed, that the marginalized should be protected…. why would a Christian need to think differently about this? In today’s message we ask ourselves that question, and look to scripture for the answer.
