Can You Be A Gay Christian? (Podcast Interview)

Drop The Stones Episode 1


This is an honest (and difficult) conversation.

It’s not perfect, polished or even edited. It’s just what happens when a pastor from Puerto Rico interviews a gay christian from England.

Above we tackle things like,

  • Is being gay and Christian even possible? 
  • Can there be friendship when there’s legitimate disagreement about what the Bible says about homosexuality? 
  • How is the LGBTQ community being rejected by the church?

Some aspects were discuss, others were left out for future conversations… but if there’s one thing we can agree on, is that Jesus invites us all to sit at his table, and there… His grace can rule our relationships.

So the invitation is this, listen to understand… not to respond.

(But after you’re finished listening, feel free to send comments, questions, feedback to [email protected]).

As my friend Carl Medaris says, “Truth and Grace. A fine balancing act. No bumper sticker answers. No easy black and white responses to complicated questions involving real live human beings made in the image of God who are desperately seeking to find him.”

Peace.

  1. Asking if someone can be a “gay Christian” is the same as asking if someone can be a “lying Christian” or “alcoholic Christian”. The answer of course is yes, but that does not alleviate the problem of sin. No Christian should be actively living a life of sin, and yet countless Christians do just that. Someone once said the greatest sin is the one YOU don’t commit. Oh how true this is when you think about it… who are we to judge the sins of others, when we have a mountain of sin in our lives? Recently I wrote an article entitled How to Respond to Homosexuality and in it, I tackle this touchy subject. What we CANNOT do as Christians is to “bend” the Word of God to fit a popular lifestyle in our world right now. Sin is sin. Homosexuality is sin. Repentance means to turn away from your sin and towards God. If you choose to live a life of active sin (homosexuality or otherwise) you will NOT lose your salvation, you will only hinder your relationship with Jesus Christ. What Christian would want to do that?
