The Church's conversations about LGBT issues typically have more to do with politics and membership logs than with the power of the gospel. We fight between political parties about marriage laws and between denominations about Scriptural interpretation. Everyone is afraid of what the world will come to if the other camp get's its way. The conversation is often driven by fear, in both liberal and conservative circles. But, perfect love casts out fear (1 John 4:18). Peyton Jones has shared a powerful article about The Gospel in an LGBT World that brings the focus back on Jesus and the power of the Gospel.
Francis Chan shares a valuable message about what the Church is supposed to do. We have shared this before, but I think it is imperative that we return to the fundamental idea of what God calls the Church to be and do. Left to ourselves, we slip too easily into a dead cultural conception rather than the passionate thing God calls us to be.
