The Wartburg watch blog has a very interesting series on Christians and homosexuality, with very challenging contributions from the inimitable Justin Lee of the Gay Christian Network, and Brad/futuristguy. It’s much more nuanced, interesting and intellectually honest than for example this chart that has been going around on facebook lately.
Here are the Wartburg Watch posts; Be sure to read all of them!
I think the most important thing here is what Dee says in the preface to her last post about Justin:
He opened my eyes to many things that I have never considered. Justin made me realize that I am dealing with people, not a just a theological concept.
This should be our approach. Love people before theory.My eyes were opened to that by Andrew Marins book ‘love is an orientation’, but in all those discussions online it’s a good reminder. We’re dealing with people.
Carbon-based lifeforms who bear the image of God!
…on both sides…
