In this episode, I share a conversation I recently had about LGBTQ+-ism and Christianity. Where does humanistic and Biblical morality clash?
Recently, I had a conversation with my barber about LGBTQ+ -ism. He couldn’t understand how God could condemn those who were born like that and who were good people. My conversation with him turned to the Gospel: how we are all sinful from conception (Psalm 139), how we all deserve death (Romans 3:23), but how Jesus came as a sacrifice for our sins, on our behalf (John 3:16).
He told me he believed in God, but couldn’t believe that God could condemn these people. I asked him a couple of key questions. First, I asked him how you could receive salvation. He told me through a savior. I asked him what a savior means and he said someone who saves you from your sins. Then I asked him what sin was and he couldn’t answer it clearly.
He told me that sin is something bad you do to someone else and that we ultimately just know what sin is. He said those who are LGBTQ+ don’t sin against anyone since they are in a relationship together. How did I respond to this? Listen to today’s episode to find out!
