When truth is avoided, minimized, revised, or withheld by the Church, shouldn’t we be concerned about the possibility of it being prohibited in the culture?

“…although healing many people of their physical ailments, Jesus often indicated that the forgiveness of their sins was the true gift.”

Even those with a limited knowledge of the Bible will remember that Jesus was scorned and ridiculed for spending time with what were considered the “worst” sinners and the most “unclean” people of His day.

However, Jesus was always determined to focus on those who had the deepest need for Him. As He said, “He was sent not for the healthy, but for the sick,” (Matthew 9:12) and He had little tolerance for those who failed to see their own brokenness.

Clearly, Jesus hung out with sinners. He dined with prostitutes and tax collectors. He interacted with adulterers and harlots. He touched those who were ravaged by socially unacceptable disease.

Simply loving them, He listened as much or more than He talked, and His compassion for them and His understanding of their hurt was clear.

If we are to reach the individual struggling with same-gender attraction or the gay community, we must do the same. A very simple scanning of the gospels offers a good picture of several attitudes and actions that characterize Jesus’ way of relating to those who did not know Him and who were lost in their sin.

Jesus routinely broke religious and cultural boundaries. Jesus healed people on the Sabbath, He entered the homes of undesirable people, and He spoke publicly to people the religious leaders ignored. Clearly, Jesus sacrificed tradition and reputation for the sake of the lives He sought to impact.

Boy, now there’s a lesson: being more attentive and mindful about our character rather than our reputation.

Jesus began His interaction with sinners by loving them first. In other words, he had a genuine love for them and wanted to get to know them. Remember?

If we are going to be effective in speaking into an individual’s life, we must first establish relationship. Jesus was all about building relationships with sinners. Certainly, Jesus, being Jesus, had quicker relational success than we might have, but His example in getting to know people and letting them see Him is vital for our evangelism efforts.

Jesus physically touched people. In other words, He wasn’t afraid to get a bit dirty. He touched lepers, blind people, and prostitutes.

Frankly, I believe physical touch was Jesus’ physical manifestation of His love for people.

In His day, it was considered unclean to even be in proximity with such people. His own disciples often tried to keep “those people” away from Him. But Jesus not only didn’t avoid those people, He sought them out. And it was His touch that healed them both physically and spiritually.

Jesus offered people something better than their sin. He pulled their attention away from their sin and enabled them to consider and focus on what He could give. He told the woman at the well that He had living water, and then He offers her Himself.

After He saved the adulterous woman from being stoned, He offered her freedom from condemnation. After the harlot anointed His feet, He forgave her sin and saved her for eternity. Now, catch this. While Jesus healed many people of their physical ailments, He often indicated that the forgiveness of their sins was the true gift, even more so than the physical healing they so desired. If we are going to reach the homosexual community, we must offer them something better than their sin.

Jesus’ own examples provide us with several practical tools for reaching our gay and lesbian friends, neighbors, etc.

First, please take this to heart – you have permission to love your gay friends or family members.

And, frankly, you have more than permission, you have a mandate from the Lord.

For the Church to effectively fulfill the Great Commission to preach the Gospel and make disciples, it must know and affirm the truth about God, humanity, and life, both eternal and temporal.

To develop a Biblical view of sexual behavior is to affirm the Bible’s inerrancy and its authority over believers’ lives regardless of what society says because when God speaks a word on any topic He speaks the final word.

The Church has, does, and probably will always face crises, from without or within. Therefore, it seems the question for us is not whether the Church faces a crisis, but rather, what types of crises does she face today, and is it correct to identify homosexuality as one of them?

It is well known by cultural revolutionaries that the key to changing a culture is to capture the minds and the hearts of youth. For the past 35 years, the concentrated effort to change the attitudes of youth toward homosexual practice has been highly organized, constant, and very effective.

Within recent years, the pro-gay movement has moved well beyond seeking tolerance to promoting active approval and celebration of homosexuality with youth having been exposed to a consistent presentation of gay-identified individuals almost always sympathetically portrayed.

Clearly, compounding the crisis is that there is no tolerance for anyone having an opposing point of view, a different belief, or a deeply held conviction regarding homosexual practice.

The undeniable reality dictates homosexual practice isn’t ‘out there,’ it’s inside churches, in youth groups across America.

For the past several months, His Way Out Ministries has experienced a considerable increase of Christian parents contacting our ministry with legitimate concerns regarding youth.

For the most part, but not entirely, justified concerns center around…

Should youth, will youth, hold to the instructions of Scripture, The Church, and parents, or will they reject their faith convictions as outdated and accept what I would label “a new morality?”

Personally speaking, these are my concerns of today and for many years.

Most youth are learning more about homosexuality from the internet, movies, and television than they are in our churches.

Consequently, they are not getting truth. So, based on what they are hearing, is it any wonder so many youths agree with and approve of the smorgasbord of possible sexual identities from which to choose?

We, The Church, must address the myths that our youth are hearing and learning from our culture. It is not possible for youth to hold firm to Biblical truth if we, The Church, refuse to address the lies that are bombarding our youth today.

Prayer Requests

  • Parents: Please pray that parents will be fully clothed and prepared by “putting on the full armor of God” so that they can “stand against the devil’s schemes” (Ephesians 6:10-17).
  • Youth: Please pray for youth to more fully understand and embrace that as a result of rebellion against God, we are each tempted to pursue our own ways, doing what seems most “natural” to us.
  • Churches: The mistaken belief of, “We don’t have that problem here,” is naive and almost always wrong. Please pray churches acknowledge the serious error that has been made in removing homosexuality from the list of sins typically spoken about with youth.

Please partner with His Way Out Ministries in prayer to not only continue negating the many myths surrounding homosexuality, but greater opportunities to present a positive message that promotes Biblical sexuality and redemption themes from Scripture to youth.

“The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.” 2 Corinthians 10:4

Rock Harbor Church and His Way Out Ministries are pleased to announce “Straight Talk” beginning Saturday, January 14, 2023, 9:00am to 11:00am.

Sitting in church surrounded by believers you are pretty comfortable and content. But now, as a Bible-believing Christian, you have the task, if not the monumental challenge, of facing the son or daughter, your friend, neighbor, or co-worker that sees nothing wrong with homosexual practice and is involved in a same-sex relationship.

Why bother discussing homosexuality from a Biblical standpoint? The answer just may lie in whatever may motivate you to attend Straight Talk.

Christian Leader: You may simply want (need) a better working knowledge of the topic.

Parent or Friend: Someone you love might be same-sex attracted and you’re wondering, as a Bible-believing Christian, how you can keep a relationship with this person without compromising your deeply held beliefs and convictions.

Educator: What causes homosexuality? Is it immutable or changeable? As an educator, you want a better understanding and grasp of the academic questions the subject raises.

Counselor: Maybe you are looking for insights, for when your client says, “I’m gay.”

Same-Sex Attracted Individual: Maybe you are in the midst of feelings, emotions, and attractions you neither desire nor chose, wondering what, if anything, you can do.

Concerned Christian: You may need a better understanding of the Biblical perspective on homosexuality so you can persuasively articulate it.

Straight Talk seeks to turn controversy into ministry because those who live by truth engage in the ongoing challenge of applying God’s unchanging standards to our ever-changing culture and world.

God has revealed His truth and has commissioned His Church to reveal it in turn, through preaching, teaching, and disciple-making.

“Sanctify the Lord God in your hearts,” the apostle Peter admonished. “And always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear” (1 Peter 3:15).

Straight Talk, facilitated by Pastor Phillip Lee, His Way Out Ministries, will begin on Saturday, January 14, 2023, 9:00am to 11:00am and then continue to meet on the 2nd Saturday of each month, 9:00am to 11:00am.

Teaching materials provided.
