The 88th Note on Religious Rights, Gay Rights: Faith’s Focus after the Supreme Court Decision

The question I’ve been asked most frequently by people outside Faith Church since the Supreme Court’s legalization of gay marriage is what an organization like us plans to do now. I find that surprising because responding to decisions about how other people choose to live is at best the 88th note on our piano. We’re not political junkies, culture warriors, or media pundits because such activities are far afield from our God-given mission. The simple answer to the question is that we intend to do the same things we’ve been doing since we were founded by a small group of followers of Jesus on South 18th Street fifty years ago.

Gospel Light Is Brightest When It Gets Darker Outside

The recent Supreme Court decision in favor of homosexual marriage is one that grieves our heart. It brings grief because we know the Scriptures are true when it says that sin is a disgrace to any nation (Proverbs 14:34).

Instead it only leads to a deeper hardening of the heart away from God. So we grieve, but we do not grieve without hope. Continue reading

Homosexuality: A Matter of Orientation

As we move to the topic of homosexuality we need to approach it with sensitivity. I have had the great privilege of walking alongside several men compelled by the gospel to come out of a homosexual lifestyle. Our church is full of men and women who are experiencing redemption in Jesus Christ. Many of these still wrestle with homosexual temptations while others have experienced healing to such a degree that they are now happily married, joyfully expressing their sexuality within heterosexual marriage or have the desire to do so.
