Here is a great article concerning what is perhaps the greatest challenge facing the Church in the 20th and 21st centuries. There are two things in this article that really stick out. One, the Church must take a firm biblical stance regarding homosexuality. Two, the Church must approach it’s stance with love rather than condemnation.
Paragraph from article:
“Though homosexuality is just one of the “new realities” with which young people must contend en route to adulthood, I can’t take any “new” stance on this issue. It’s just not needed. I’m convinced that Jesus Christ’s followers must formulate – and articulate! – a doctrine on this issue that’s congruent with scripture, a doctrine of compassion and truth. Then, the Church must live in accordance with that biblical statement.”
