DEBATING THE ‘GAY DILEMMA’

“The Church’s Gay Dilemma”—really? The “church” doesn’t have a “gay dilemma.” Church attendees do. The church Christ gave His precious life for was, is and forever will be dilemma-free.

Lee Steele, Winter Haven, Fla.


“A Way Out” by Janet Boynes was a great article (July). I’m happy she has peace with the Lord and is helping the church understand how to reach out in love to those who struggle with same-sex attractions. She is right about the answer being for godly women to love those caught up in the sin of lesbianism. It’s truly a beautiful thing to see believers loving on each other, in spite of our faults.

As a baptized Christian for 54 years, I cannot understand Charisma writing anything about homosexuality. We all know it’s a sin, so why do we have Christians getting involved?

Julia Randle, Jacksonville, Ark.

 

Ronald J. Sider’s “Marriage Under Siege” (July) was spot on. Christians say that gay marriage will destroy the family unit. Considering the growing numbers of out-of-wedlock births among heterosexual women and the high divorce rate and various forms of family dysfunction among heterosexuals, straight Americans don’t need help from the tiny minority of gays when it comes to destroying the family. If the church is worried about America’s cultural decay, they have no one to blame but themselves.

‘squishy’ gospel isn’t the answer

I agree with the foundational Christian tenets J. Lee Grady used to address the creeping New Age-style beliefs infiltrating the church (“A Squishy Gospel,” July). The aggressive “turn or burn” types are quickly set aside by seekers in favor of the ooey-gooey God of love. The solution is clear: We must center our evangelistic efforts on love and stay true to the methods in our holy instruction manual. 

Mike Weber, Gurnee, Ill.


Correction: Our story “The Plan for a Gay (Domi)Nation” (July) incorrectly called an advocacy group that includes Wheaton College alumni a “campus” organization. It is not officially affiliated with the school .
