With much going on daily in regards to society and issues of homosexuality (though this is true to abortion or whatever other societal issue you choose), the church must confess boldly. Indeed, there is this tendency for Christians to speak against things. For many, Christians are simply those who are against homosexuality, against abortion, and against whatever else you want to pick.
Here is the problem. Christians should not speak of being against these things for sake of being against them. The confession and proclamation of the Church must be for the gospel of Christ crucified and risen.
On the issue of homosexual marriage, it is not a matter of being against homosexuality but for the gospel. While I can agree with much of what is shared on this particular example from the Christian Post, it falls short in that it does not get to the gospel.
Truthfully, any talk of marriage that is not revolved around Genesis 1 and Ephesians 5 always seems to come up short in this manner. The church cannot condone homosexual marriage, because it is against the gospel. It goes against how marriage is defined and given. It is about Christ and His Church. It is for the sake of the gospel. As the bride who awaits the coming the bridegroom, we await that consummation to come in the resurrection, the restoration of what was given in Genesis 1. For there is not two brides (two churches) thus to have no Savior, nor is there two bridegrooms, thus to have two Christs.
As Christians, when we speak on the issue of homosexuality (or really any other issue) it should not be that we are against anyone but always for the gospel of Christ, crucified and risen for you. This is basis of all discussions of marriage. Issues of divorce, abuse, children, sex, or basic marriage bickering. It should always be for the gospel, about Christ, crucified and risen, forgiving and restoring sinful lives. Until this is the talk of all conversations and marriage, they will always fall short.
