Lead Class: The Gospel, Our LGBTQ Friends, and the Church
The Gospel, Our LGBTQ Friends, and the Church
Gender and sexual identity are increasingly captivating our culture’s imagination in deeply personal and at times controversial ways. Often Christians feel caught between internal struggles, cultural voices, and biblical truth. How can we think biblically and respond compassionately when the only alternatives offered are “affirm” or “hate”?
In this class, we will discuss the way of Jesus applied to gender and sexuality.
• In what way do Christians think differently about same-sex attraction and gender dysphoria?
• How does the gospel transform and restore our relational and sexual wholeness?
• What if my child “comes out” to me?
• Should I use my coworker’s preferred pronouns?
• How do we remain faithful to the Bible’s teaching and still winsomely engage in conversations with our LGBTQ friends?
