Contrary voice

While this is put more strongly than I would put it, I tend to agree with Michael Spencer in a lot of his points:

I’m not compromising on homosexuality or the glory of God by not taking up Dobson’s agenda or buying into his paranoia about homosexuality in the culture. I read Romans 1, and I am down at the church doing the rest of the book. Should Christians promote their worldview like homosexuals do? No. I don’t want schools making pledges to Christ. I don’t want Christians pressuring Hollywood to put them in sitcoms. I don’t want Congress to pass Christ-friendly laws. I don’t want the Christian faith made the law of the land. If I wanted to act like gay activists I would join Fred Phelps. I don’t want to imitate Dobson or gay activists. I want to do what Jesus commanded the church to do, the way Jesus commanded the church to do it. Should I be more upset that gays are telling my children homosexuality is OK? Frankly, that is a minor problem compared to the fact that most of the preachers and churches in America don’t proclaim- or even understand- the Gospel. The fact that Joel Osteen is the most popular preacher in America is a crisis. The lack of the Gospel in the church….there’s a problem I can grieve about. Frankly, Christians who are upset at homosexuals more than the sin in their own lives and churches have issues that go to the heart of the Gospel itself. (I Corinthians 5:9-13, I Corinthians 6:9-11, Titus 2:11-15, Titus 3:3-11) Despite what he says, I think Dobson is throwing stones, and I am hanging with the guy that says “Neither do I (condemn you.) Go and sin no more” to me.
