Biblical Christians are sometimes questioned by other Christians for their impassioned stance on the sinfulness of homosexual conduct. Critics sometimes decry a Biblical Christian’s determination to proclaim to our culture God’s truth on matters of sexual morality.
But this faithful opposition to sinful behavior in the culture is borne out of a realization of the Biblical Christian’s own sinful nature. While faithfully and boldly opposing the unbiblical homosexual lifestyle, Biblical Christians are acutely aware of the depravity out of which Christ saved them. They understand I Corinthians 6:9-10 as a sobering passage wherein all manner of ungodliness is condemned, including that of homosexuality. But Christians seeking to live in humility will never neglect what Paul wrote (in the very next verse) to encourage some of his readers who had come from a sordid past, “…and such were some of you: but you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God” (1 Cor. 6:11, NKJV).
This is a truly exquisite paradox. Biblical Christians live in the beautiful profundity of God’s forgiveness for the very sins they must now faithfully oppose. We do not stand against sin merely because we are right, but also because we are rescued. We understand that total obedience and submission to Christ and His commands is, in reality, the truest sort of freedom one can possess. This knowledge drives us to share Christ and His freedom with everyone, including homosexuals.
Family Policy Network exists, in part, for that purpose. The grace of Jesus Christ is exactly why FPN created www.hopeforhomosexuals.com. FPN is committed to the Biblical truth regarding God’s forgiveness of any sin, including sexual sin. Christ’s death on the cross justifies those who have faith in Him. If you or anyone you know is struggling with homosexual desires, point them to www.hopeforhomosexuals.com.
Read Family Policy Network’s principles here:
God’s love is not reserved for people who have always had everything “straight.” Instead, God desires to have a relationship with those who have gone astray. And while there is a great price to be paid for our sin; God has already paid it in full. Hope can be yours today if you will open your heart to Him.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11
Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals,nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.(NJKV)
