Answering tough questions about same sex marriage
[hidden] recently had the opportunity of speaking on this subject at a conference in Nashville, addressing the questions:
- How come Jesus never mentioned homosexuality?
- Can't we just agree to disagree on this issue as Christians?
- Surely a same-sex partnership is okay if it is committed and faithful?
- Doesn't the traditional Christian position on sex and marriage cause harm to people?
You can watch this session below. Do contact Sam if you'd like to discuss any of these issues further.
