What Should the Christian View of Homosexuality / Same-Sex Marriage Be?

It’s a controversial subject, no doubt, but what should the Christian view of homosexuality & same-sex marriage be?

Does God just want everyone to be happy? Did God make them that way? In this 4 minute video, we address those questions and more.

When it comes to sin (be it homosexuality, adultery, lying, or whatever), the question is who is your final authority for morality and ethics? Man, or God.

Some say God made us that way. Are you kidding me? Did God make us as sinners? Do you reject your own free will? In truth, there are many temptations that ‘feel’ natural. Our ‘feelings’ do not permit us to pass the blame on to God.

Supporting verses:

[Romans 1:26:27]

For this reason, God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way, also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

 Side Note: Homosexuality should not be lifted up above any other sexual sin, including heterosexuals committing adultery, and/or sex out of wedlock.

Mike Cynar was raised in a church setting where he frequently noticed that many attendees would eventually drift away. The church labeled these individuals as ‘back sliders’ or ‘fake Christians’ just looking for ‘fire insurance’. However, Mike realized the issue was rarely with these individuals but instead with the church’s message itself. The teachings heavily emphasized behavior improvement and one’s flaws, with only a fleeting mention of one’s identity in Christ. It felt as though every sermon was tailored to the church of Corinth, who as we know or committing sins that even unbelievers don’t partake in. This trend was noticeable not just in one denomination, but across Baptist, Catholic, Pentecostal, and many other churches. Upon understanding the true essence of the gospel – that our righteousness comes from Jesus’ actions, not our own – Mike was inspired to liberate believers from lifeless sermons and reconnect them with the genuine teachings of Jesus. He believes that one can nurture a vibrant and growing bond with Jesus, unhindered by rigid religious practices. And thus, “Jesus Without Religion” was born.

It turns out that it is grace that leads to repentance. And if our heart is to get others to walk in the Spirit and live a godly life, then the best approach is not a beat down sermon, but rather to remind other that it is only when we understand our true identity in Christ that we will live it out. Yes, it’s true, if you’re convinced that God thinks you’re a dirty sinner, you will ultimately continue a lifestyle that mirrors that view, but if you truly believe that even on your worst day, you are called holy, sanctified, justified, and will be presented blameless in the end, well, it turns out this is the secret to living out on the outside what has been worked in to the inside.
