Practicing Christian, Practicing Homosexual?

“I was just reading through the December issue of the banner and I came across an article called, “Play About Gay Christians Sells Out.” The article talks about a director at Calvin College putting on a play about Gay Christians and how wonderful and successful it was. Numerous times homosexuality has come up in talking with my students, but I always felt that it was obviously wrong and I have conveyed that idea to them. I still believe that God did not intend for people to be gay but am I being to harsh to say that you can’t be a Christian and a practicing Gay at the same time??”

This is an important and difficult question. Many people are struggling with this question. I will not answer right away, I need some time to reflect and pray through it. But if you have some thoughts you would like to share, please do. My only request is that you remember this is a public forum and that we need to be wise, sensitive and encouraging, whatever our thoughts might be. The Bible urges us to speak the truth in love (Ephesians 4:15).

In the meantime, check out the Christian Reformed position on homosexuality. 

The difference Jesus makes!

If you are a Christ-follower, can you explain the difference that Jesus has made in your life? Is it a noticeable difference? Tell us about it. Share your stories, so that we can be inspired and encouraged!

We are looking forward to hearing from you!
