GOING SOFT ON HOMOSEXUALITY? Homosexuality and the problem with politically correct language
WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE MINDS OF CHRISTIANS TODAY?
A short commentary on the problem and some helpful papers and articles.
The True Gospel has always been accompanied by a warning about the sins of one’s contemporary generation. So today it would be radical feminism, homosexuality, stem cell research, euthanasia, abortion and such like. Already the unthinkable has happened in a number of moral issues such as: – Abortion – nothing is being done to enforce Biblical principles on this issue – Euthanasia – no articles or preaching against this practice – Feminism – no article or teaching showing how wrong this is Consider the facts: When the Church was doctrinally conservative, then we had great growth. But when we watered-down truths, then we went backward in membership, unity and truth; The people that took over these churches inherited the assets, but lost the members and any moral authority whatsoever. Instead, their members fled to home groups, small community churches or conservative churches. It is no different among the Churches and will get worse if we soften our stance on homosexuality.
Surrendering to Political Correctness is why some are not speaking out. Here are the likely reasons:
– Fear of what the world may do or accuse them of (eg discrimination)
– Lack of understanding of legislation. Out of the 200 or so nations in the world, there MAY be just one or two that do not permit public and democratic views on the subject. This trend may grow, but there is no need to fast forward what may happen in the future into the Church now.

Steve Gaines did the same thing when he heard about Paul Williams sexual molestation of his own young son. Williams was the associate pastor of Bellevue Baptist with Adrian Rogers and at Rogers’ death Steve became the pastor and Williams stayed on as associate.
