Verunsichert Dich als Christ das Thema Homosexualität? Neben dem Studium der Heiligen Schrift und seriöser Literatur zum Thema (z.B. The Bible and Homosexual Practice von Robert A. J. Gagnon) empfehle ich Dir, einen bewegenden Brief von Michael Glatze zu lesen. Michael schreibt:
In today’s perilous times, people find themselves riled up by the forces of darkness and evil around us. We hear something that makes us sad, which leads to a bit of anger, which leads us into a foolish argument – which we are advised, by the apostle Paul, to avoid. Thus, we „engender strife,“ when we could – simply – love.
Does love mean we agree with everything? God forbid. Does love mean we don’t feel when people are hurting themselves? God forbid. God’s love is as great as His justice, His recognition of right and wrong.
And so, I write this article as a letter of encouragement to the Christian Church to continue trusting in the love of the Saviour, rather than in your own understanding, to continue swallowing your pride and letting Him fight our battles for us. Often, we have a tendency to want to play the hero, or the heroine; this temptation comes from a desire to prove ourselves. In Christ, our souls are already proven.
