When our culture accepts something as normative, we are going to lose if we think we can persuade people through logical explanation. The posture of the church ought to be one of inviting in the broken, speaking the truth in love, and allowing the Holy Spirit to bring about repentance. Resist the temptation to single out sins. Instead, look for ways to invite others into biblical community where God can move in them and guide them into greater truth.
