To my brothers and sisters in ministry, I appeal to you in the sight of God: Please speak plainly and clearly when it comes to homosexuality, and please do so with compassion and love.
At this critical time in history, we’ve got no business dancing around these life and death issues, issues that affect people we love. We’ve got no business playing games with words, trying to be so subtle that no one understand us, working so hard not to offend that we fail to warn and save. We’ve got no business being unclear when God’s Word is so clear, and we’ve got no business calling ourselves representatives of Jesus when our hearts don’t flow with His love.
Just consider what’s happening in our society today.
- Drag queens are reading stories to our 2-year-old children in libraries.
- Kindergarteners are learning about being trans.
- Middle-schoolers are encouraged to come out as gay without their parents knowing. College students have to share their PGPs (Preferred Gender Pronouns) at the start of each semester (as in, “I’m Shannon, and my preferred gender pronouns are ze and zir”).
- Business colleagues have lost their livelihoods because they could not in good conscience participate in a same-sex “wedding.”
And we’re afraid to be direct and clear because we don’t want to offend someone? How is that strategy working?
