It’s a pretty heavy thing to be accused of homophobia. The word is not an intellectual judgement but a more damning moral one.
There have always been examples of unkind attitudes, bullying and discrimination towards people who appear to be, or who identify as, homosexual, just as there has always been racism, snobbery and other ugly traits.Add a comment
Now City Church in San Francisco welcomes practicing homosexuals as members. What does that mean? ‘Member’ can be ambiguous, can it more clearly mean ‘we welcome you to the Lord’s Table?’ There we can study I Cor 11 together. Otherwise ‘member’ could mean just, you are welcome to our ongoing conversation or to join us in our journey to Jesus.Add a comment
What is our Christian take on marriage? Right now we say a lot about hetero and homo, important though that is, but we’re pitifully slow at getting to the heart of what God tells us about marriage. This is it: believers in Jesus Christ should marry believers, and lean together on Jesus to do it right.Add a comment
