Divine Tension

The Nines Conference 2014

Hunter said, “My first job as a pastor is not to convince people to practice Christian ethics. My first job is to help them encounter the gospel of Jesus and see it as true, beautiful, powerful, and worth trusting with their whole lives.”  While those ethical conclusions may be correct biblically, true change occurs through an encounter with Jesus Christ, not through behavioral modification. In your conversations with people engaged in same-sex lifestyles, strive to introduce them to the Savior and not just biblical ethics.
