We are constantly asked what approach is best for reaching people who have same sex attractions. Galatians 5 is clear about how powerful the fruit of the Spirit is…
The quote below is from the Sojourners website. We guarantee this approach will work with the LGBT community, and with any Christian who has SSA:
“It’s easy to get caught up in theorizing about God, but within our everyday lives reality is what matters most to the people around us. Theorizing only becomes important once it becomes relevant and practical and applicable to our lives.
When I’m sick, and you bring me a meal, I don’t care whether you’re a Calvinist or Arminian.
When I’m poor, and you give me some food and money, I don’t care if you’re pre-millennial or post-millennial.
When I’m in the hospital, and you send me a get-well basket, I don’t care what your church denomination is.
When you visit my grandparents in the nursing home, I don’t care what style of worship music you listen to.
When you’re kind enough to shovel my parent’s driveway, I don’t care what translation of the Bible you read.
When you give my friend a lift when their car breaks down, I don’t care if you’re Baptist or Catholic.
When you help my grandmother carry a heavy load of groceries, I don’t care what you believe about evolution.
When you protect my kids from getting hit by a car when they’re running across the street, I don’t care who your favorite theologian is.
When you’re celebrating my birthday with me, I don’t care about your views related to baptism.
When you grieve alongside me during the death of a family member, I don’t care if you tithe or not.
When you love me in deep and meaningful and authentic ways — nothing else really matters.”
