Exclude No One

The Nines Conference 2014


For many people today, the subject of homosexuality is one that creates feelings of discomfort. At times, historically, this has led some to speak about homosexuality as though it is a worse sin than others. In this 5-minute session from The Nines Conference 2014, Daniel Fusco, Lead Pastor of Crossroads Community Church in Vancouver, Washington, urges the church to share the gospel in a balanced manner, communicating the saving grace of Jesus Christ to all no matter the sin that besets them.

Jesus said, "I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Luke 5:32). Homosexuality, like any form of sin, is not too great a barrier for God to bring about repentance. Because of this, the church should not be a place of exclusion, but one that welcomes all people for the sake of pointing them to the hope offered through faith in Jesus Christ. Spend some time considering the posture of your heart towards the issues of homosexuality and same-sex marriage. If there are any ways in which you view them in an unbalanced manner, ask God to change your heart and give you a burden for the gay community to experience the true joy found through submission to Christ.
