Churches Losing Against LGBT Vendetta to Destroy Faith




Blaze Opinion Excerpt: Every cultural institution in America, including historic civil rights organization, understands that “rainbow is the new black.” The LGBTQIA+ community’s ever-expanding acronym is an accurate reflection of its political power, despite research that indicates only 7% of U.S. adults identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or something other than heterosexual.

The reason Pride flags are so ubiquitous in American society is that every conquering army raises its banner to signal victory over its opponents.

The final territory to be conquered in Pride’s march through the institutions is the church. It goes without saying that many churches have already abandoned Biblical teaching on matters of sex, sexuality, and gender identity. The United Church of Christ has a coalition of churches that identify as open and affirming. These churches display Pride flags with more passion and prominence than crosses.

But there are other pastors who are trying to straddle the fence between Biblical fidelity and cultural relevancy. A recent sermon by Pastor Mike Todd included his admission that he wrestles with things he does not understand (e.g., same-sex attraction) and that his default in those situations is to submit his opinions to clear Biblical teaching.

Andy Stanley, pastor of a mega church in Georgia, has also been criticized by fellow Christians for what they believe is an increasingly affirming stance on homosexuality. His claims that some homosexuals he knows exhibit more faith and love than professing believers raised eyebrows in evangelical circles. So did his claim that Christians should not argue for the complete trustworthiness of the Bible.

Other pastors argue that Christians should align their priorities with what the Scriptures emphasize. They don’t have the conviction to boldly deny scripture, so their goal is to get believers to stop talking about sexual ethics so much. The evangelical church has gone from “love the sinner, hate the sin” to reluctantly repeating what the Bible says or trying to find ways to take the sting out its truth.

This may sound like the affirming thing to do for people struggling with same-sex attraction or gender dysphoria, but it’s not. Someone who identifies as LGBT needs to hear the same message from the church as any other person: We are all sinners in desperate need of a Savior, and forgiveness and eternal life can be attained by turning from our sin and trusting in Jesus Christ.

This is the good news of the Gospel, and it is available to all sinners, regardless of whether they are murderers, thieves, idol worshippers, adulterers, or homosexuals.
