Identity Crisis

The Nines Conference 2014


In this 5-minute session from The Nines Conference 2014, Harvey Turner, Founding and Preaching Pastor of Living Stones Church in Reno, Nevada, confronts the need for addressing issues of sexuality within the church, especially when it comes to homosexuality. He encourages Christians to refuse conversing on culture's terms in order to rightly communicate the essence of human identity.

Personal identity does not arise from sexuality. Rather, identity is grounded in the truth that all men and women are created in the image of God. When we differentiate sexuality and identity, we provide the framework for rightly understanding both personal value and sin. As you engage in conversations with those who are following our culture's misleading perspective on sexuality, point them to God as the source of their identity. Commit yourself to showing them their true value is found in Him.
