When Homosexuals Show up at Church

At a recent event, I was asked how Christians should respond when those who identify as gay or lesbian come to their church.

We can be affirming of people without affirming behaviors the Bible prohibits. That’s what we’re supposed to do with anyone who comes through our church doors.

This allows oxygen and nutrients to pass to the unborn while simultaneously allowing carbon dioxide and waste products to return to the mother.
