I Am Against Homophobia
Thursday, May 17, 2007 was the International Day Against Homophobia. Alan Chambers wrote in his blog regarding this day and how we as the church should respond to people who are "gay" identified. Please read below what he has written.
"One of the primary focuses of Exodus International and one of my missions in life is to help the Church come to see those who are gay -identified or who struggle with homosexuality as people whom Christ died for and loves equally. The Church should be more welcoming to these folks than the local gay bar. Gay and lesbian identified people should be able to find more help within the Church than they can outside of it. It has long been my goal to so impact the Church with the message of truth and grace that Exodus would be able to go out of business."
"So, when it comes to the evils of homophobia, bullying, name calling, hatred and violence where those affected by homosexuality are concerned, I stand with all decent human beings who are fighting and praying for an end to the ignorance and ungodliness that cause them."
"Join me, won't you?"
I'm willing to join Alan, are you? Let's shower all "gay" identified men and women with the love of Christ so that they would all become "new creations" (as everyone does who comes to Christ, "gay" identified or not).
