Same-sex relationships and the church

A very helpful interaction of the kind that is called for by people who love deeply and follow Christ. You will find things to disagree with but if you agree with everything why bother to reconfirm you own views? I submit this as a helpful and civil exchange.

  1. Wow John
    This is so powerful (thank you so much). This is the first genuine dialogue I have seen on this issue between Christians with divergent views of understanding how this all works out. I was especially touched by Justin Lee’s story and some of the points he made. The sad reality the church faces today is so many Christians within the many brands of churches would condemn both of these men because they are gay. The church in the future has got go do better than this! Both of these men are trying to figure out how they are to be faithful to the gospel of Jesus despite their sexual orientation. If the church of the future continues to speak truth over love and self-righteousness over wrongness, then the world will probably be more right in seeing the church as irrelevant much less not mirroring the grace and compassion of Jesus to people they find that are different than they are. I typically would not watch a two hour video but this one was definitely worth it. Thanks again.
