Christ. Culture. Church || What Does God Say about the LGBTQ+ Community? || June 26, 2022


  1. It Begins with God…Not Us (Genesis 1-2)
  2. In His Image (Genesis 1:26-27)
  3. Don’t Do It (Leviticus 18:22; Leviticus 20:13)
  4. Exchanging God’s Glory (Romans 1:21-31)


Word to the Church


  1. We have elevated the sin of homosexuality above all other sins. We are all sinful. Our sin is no different. We love one another in the midst of our sin and we should love those who are gay as well. Do I hope they will choose to live Holy lives? Yes. But I pray that for all of us. There are some in this community that are living sinful lives with no repentance right now who need to make a decision to submit to God and His will.
  2. We are not defined by our sexuality. We are defined by the image of God by which we are created. But, many people exchange that image - that glory - for the glory of idols and the glory of the creation instead of the Creator. 
  3. To the one who is gay, just because I/we don’t agree with you choices regarding how you live your life doesn’t mean I/we don’t love you. There were many things my kids did growing up that I didn’t like or agree with but I loved them and still love them. I have people in my life that are rebelling against God in other areas of their life but I still love them and walk with them. You think by this statement I am not accepting you. I AM not only accepting you but loving you just as Christ love me and you.
  4. While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
  5. Romans 5:10 (NLT): For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son
  6. We ALL sin but there is ONE WORD that separates us in whether we are living in a relationship with God or not.
  7. REPENTANCE: The change of our mind, position, to turn back to where you came from. The turning of our entire being away from sin and the world and back to God.
  8. We can’t embrace a life built on sin. We have to repent of it and turn from it.
  9. We have to submit to God’s intent and will instead of our own regardless of what we feel is correct.

Time of Response

Take a few minutes of silence. Allow your own thoughts to quiet and be still. Where does the Holy Spirit want you to decrease so that Christ could increase in your life? What part of your life, if reduced, would make more room for you to thrive spiritually?
