Lately, I have realized something about myself. I love reading books. Ok, I did not just find that out (though I hated to read, even refused to read before age 20). However, books do not always keep you up to date with current issues. So, though I am not to obsessed with finding balance, I do need to make sure that some of my reading keeps me relevant.
For this reason, the other day I suscribed to the magazine Christianity Today. Now, I think it equally important to read, get information, and stay updated from sources that are NOT “Christian.” That being said, I like the wide array of topics that Christianity Today addresses (another great source geared toward Millennials is Relevant Magazine and their website). The picture above is from an article in the latest edition. Ok, enough about this.
So, would you? As a follower of Jesus Christ, would you attend the wedding (assuming you are in a state in our Union that allows it) of a gay friend of family member? Implicit in this question is the moral stance that homosexuality is in fact a sin, a lifestyle condemned in the Scriptures as anti- God’s will (I do not want to debate in this blog whether or not homosexuality is a sin for those who do not hold to an orthodox view).
Would you attend? Why?
Would you not attend? Why?
Do you not know?
And if your response is that you do not have any gay friends or acquintances, why?
I think the only question that really matters here is, “Which response would honor Jesus Christ the most?”
