Relationships on display
This is a huge issue in the evangelical church facing a culture that is very willing to accept and coexist with same sex affection.
I am torn about this, and by the way, Torn is the name of a very honest and well written book by a young Christian gay leader. Many would say you cannot be Christian and Gay. To me that is like saying believers are not obese, or adulterous, alcoholic, drug addicted or even dishonest. I guess I lean toward sexual orientation being something deeper than a simple rebellious choice. In recent decades many serious performers in Christian music have come out about their same sex attraction, and somehow we must be very prayerful and gracious in our listening and responding to this phenomenon.
