“Should we let homosexuals into our church?”

#1 This is a complex question which first assumes there are such people as “homosexual” people and “heterosexual” people; that is not evidenced in the research.  Instead, as Nicolosi states, there is only one kind of sexual person, people with naturally opposite-attracted erotic desires.  Some have had emotional wounds which result in their perceptions of themselves and their perceptions of others to be filtered to the extent that their God-given erotic desires mix with their God-given same-sex needs, i.e. “people with a homosexual problem”.  If the Church intends to reach out to the afflicted, these are people they need to be reaching.

#2 There is a difference between people who experience same-sex attraction and those who practice prohibited homosexual acts.  The Bible is clear that homosexual erotic acts are prohibited; it is also clear that anyone can be justified and sanctified by the redemption offered through Jesus.  It’s not up to you who gets into the Church, it’s up to Jesus, and He prayed for us not to be divided.

In general, I suggest anyone asking or wanting to answer these questions read The only 3 things I wish my straight Christian friends knew about homosexuality.

“What’s your position on bullying?”

I am absolutely against bullying.  Bullying is both emotional and physical abuse, and it is a boundary violation.  First and foremost, it violates God’s command to “love your neighbor as yourself.”  Not only do many men with SSA have poorly established boundaries, but I’ve found modern American culture has many boundary problems.  Unfortunately some campaigns which may purport to discourage bullying are just trojan horses for anti-Biblical political agendas, while others are more emotional reactions in the form of passive-agressive actions instead of an emotionally sober response.  Please do not construe this as support or opposition to any particular anti-bullying campaign.  As Christians, we are charged with spreading God’s love for everyone, mutual respect for each other based on His love, and comfort those in grief, not demean and injure.

It is also my position that enforcing non-discrimination laws against those who do not agree to participate in same-sex weddings does not constitute slavery, which is an extreme form of bullying.
