Uncomfortable Words about Conduct, Critical Analysis, and Be-ing

Dear ἐκκλησία,

We live in the midst of a time in history where myriads upon myriads of voices are competing rather cunningly not only for our attention but more importantly for the most prominent places in our decision making, advisory, and influential capacities. Constitutive Christian doctrines, tenets, principles, teachings, ethics, practices, and beliefs suddenly become negotiable to the point of being unrecognizable from divine design and purpose; or optional; or even archaic.

At the following link, Dr. Wayne Grudem sets forth  a “reminder of what God’s Word has to say about homosexual conduct, a teaching many believers increasingly prefer to forget”.

It is an uncomfortable reminder that is nonetheless crucial and imperative. Please consider prayerfully and reflectively.

An admonition, if I may: please walk (and pray, think, be, and act) in αγάπη as Christ ἠγάπησεν us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.  (Please note the word αγάπη. The love we be and do toward God and others is the love to which I’m referring. Got that?)   ~Ephesians 5:2
