What do you say when a professing Christian is ready to embrace the gay lifestyle? Pastor John offers a place to start.
Today’s question comes from a podcast listener named Kathy. “Hello, Pastor John! I write because my best friend just told me that she has been wrestling with homosexual desires for years and will now give in to them. She recently said this to me: ‘I’m going to date a girl. I just am. It just feels more right, and I just have to try it. I’ve agonized over this for years. I didn’t ask for this, and I’m not guilty or ashamed anymore. I’ve prayed and prayed and prayed and studied, and I don’t really feel condemnation from God. I just feel it from people. I feel fine about it, free, unconvicted, and not scared anymore.’
“Those are her words. My friend clearly professes faith and has come to the conclusion that it is okay to pursue this lifestyle. But her strong defensiveness makes me unsure how to best voice my disagreement.”
