I don’t mean to get all political. That’s not the purpose of this post.
But when it comes to homosexuality, and gay marriage in particular, culture has us pushed up against the wall.
When the church disagrees with something that’s becoming socially acceptable, what is the best way to respond.
Here, Rick Santorum, tries to respond with reason. That clearly doesn’t work with this crowd of college students.
And I’m sure that if he responded with a Biblical response as to why most Christians are opposed to gay marriage, it would have been much worse for him.
I mean… how could a religious person be so intolerant and unloving?
Watch, and you’ll see what I mean…
What is the best response to the question posed to Santorum? Is there any answer that will make sense to the questioner?
Is the issue of gay marriage going to keep us from the opportunity to share Jesus in the future?
I think that’s the question.
Because… if the leading thing we’re discussing is gay marriage, we’ll never get to the gospel.
And yet if we don’t tell them what our view on gay marriage is, we feel like we’re backing down.
What’s the solution?
What’s YOUR solution? What’s your CHURCH’s solution?
(You’ll need to have one… and soon).
I’d love to hear your thoughts.
