“Rebuke your neighbor frankly so that you will not share in his guilt” (Leviticus 19:17b, NIV 1984).
This column is the first in response to a man named Donald who wrote some replies to my column entitled, “Should a Christian Attend a Homosexual Wedding?” In light of recent events, I believe it would be best to answer Donald’s comments in a more visible way, not only in the response section of my previous column.
Two things first: 1. If this column appears to start in the middle of a conversation, it does not; it simply follows from the above mentioned column. 2. I have slightly edited the responses to make them easier to read.
I begin with Donald’s first comment:
Homosexual acts always a sin? Submitted by Donald
Steve, I agree that all Scripture was inspired by God and is authoritative for a believer's faith and practice. I agree that all the verses that may allude to homosexual acts of any nature are negative, but I do not see Scripture as saying that every homosexual act is a sin, although some translations may say this; this means I think those translations are flawed.
