Don't Be A Hater

The Nines Conference 2014


In this 4-minute session from The Nines Conference 2014, Dan Reiland, Executive Pastor at 12Stone Church in Lawrenceville, Georgia, considers the ways in which culture is trying to redefine love and grace.

In response, Dan shares some ways the church can remain committed to truth in a way that extends grace to those outside of the faith.

On the issue of homosexuality, the truth of Scripture is clear. But we cannot gain influence in conversation without grace. God loves lost humanity, which means that His children must share that love in the ways they interact with people living contrary to His word. As you invite conversations about homosexuality, know what you believe, remain consistent, and ask God to help you embody the grace He has shown you in Christ.
