One approach to a difficult issue-Part 3

... For those who have embraced this freedom there is still a struggle ahead. On one hand while being set free means no longer being a slave to your own desires, putting to death those desires is a lifelong process. In our church those who have embraced the freedom offered in Christ have also embarked on this journey, they will walk alongside those who are exploring whether this is a journey they wish to take.

Each of us will be faced with desires that lead us away from freedom found in Jesus and articulated in his word –the bible. Same sex attraction is a complex issue and there is no room for moralistic views on any side. Ultimately what I think is at stake in this issue is the question, do we trust Jesus and his word or do our own desires determine what freedom is and how we should behave?

I invite you to pray for all those who are involved-that they may know the grace and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
