I like the questions posed at the top of the article:
Christians often ask, “Is homosexuality a sin?” The better questions are, “What is homosexuality?” and “Where did this label come from?”
It’s true that we need to really define the concept properly before we can ascertain whether it’s classed as sin or not. And I still don’t think we are close to truly understanding the complexity of ‘homosexuality’, whether from a biological or cultural context. And no one can agree regarding what was meant in biblical times where scriptures refer to certain same sex and other sexual acts. Therefore how can we judge it to be sin or not?
I think God’s best for us is not that we become heterosexual. I don’t think that’s the point. God’s calling for all of his followers is to holiness, to live lives grounded more and more in the love of Christ.
I think this is true.
But then the author goes on to say this:
With respect to sexuality, I think God’s best is sex within a marriage between a man and a woman.
I definitely don’t agree with that. I mean, how is that God’s best? And why is that better than sex between a same sex couple?
