Where is the middle though? I think my friend is stating our attitude more than an actual position. We should have a Christ-like spirit of graciousness in our discussions, but then put a Bible in the middle of our conversation and point to it.
1. Engage in discipleship. Discussions on homosexuality need to move from a social and political nature, to a discipleship one, especially among the younger generations. Senior Pastors and Youth Pastors, I urge you to regularly teach what the Bible says about homosexuality. Currently the media, school teachers and university professors are discipling them. I know it is controversial and sometimes silence is preferred, but if the church is not going to disciple them, who will?
2. Show kindness. Love does not mean approval of conduct. Jesus taught us to love one another, and love means to show kindness and compassion. As a body of Christ, while we disagree with homosexuality, let us over flow with kindness and compassion to those in the life style and to those who advocate for it.
