Dear His Way Out Ministries…

We received an invitation to a same-sex wedding ceremony. As Christians, we sense all eyes are on us. Can you suggest a loving way to respond? We feel attending would be showing support of the union. Are we wrong for not wanting to attend?

Marriage is a sacred relationship and a symbol of man’s relationship to God. So, as Christians, we should not support any attempt to subvert the sanctity of that union. However, do not just decline the invitation. Use the invitation as an opportunity to build a relationship by asking if you might have an opportunity to discuss the matter. Explain that your decision is based on principle, not a judgment on them as individuals. Help them understand the true definition of tolerance – ‘sympathy for beliefs or practices differing from or conflicting with one’s own’ – and ask them to extend that to you as well. As a Christian, there are times when we must be willing to appear intolerant if we hope to remain obedient to God’s Word.
