homosexuality-church

The modern Church’s overall inability to properly engage the culture in which it exists is none the more evident than in the issue of homosexuality. There is nothing more appalling (except perhaps our treatment of African Americans and women), than the pure hatred that the church has shown to the homosexual community.This will be my attempt at helping to add something meaningful to this conversation by addressing the question: how should a Christian in today's western culture understand the i … [Read more...]
