Should I Stay Or Go? (My Invite To A Same-Sex Wedding)
Today, we start a brand new series. It’s called, “The Gay Christian Identity: What It Is and How To Respond.” My guest is Joe Dallas. If that name sounds familiar to you, and I pray it does, you may remember Joe’s interview several years ago in his book – “The Gay Gospel? How Pro-Gay Advocates Misread The Bible”. Joe has also authored several other books like, “The Complete Christian Guide To Understanding Homosexuality” When Homosexuality Hits Home and Speaking of Homosexuality.
Joe is also a conference speaker and ordained pastoral counselor. He’s the Program Director of Genesis Biblical Counseling, which is a counseling ministry for men dealing with sexual addiction and other sexual/relational problems.
So let’s dive right in with my interview with Joe Dallas and discuss the most pressing questions that our culture has about homosexuality.
On today’s episode of God, Sex and You, we’ll discuss:
- Should I attend a same-sex wedding?
- How and why Joe’s position on gay marriage has changed.
- Can a homosexual really change?
I love listening to Joe Dallas, and here’s why – there are some Christian leaders who can discuss (in love) homosexuality, and there are other Christian leaders who can debate it in truth.
But Joe (and this is so important to understand) has an authority on the subject of homosexuality that very few people have. He has something that most Christian leaders desperately need, and that is conviction. When Joe speaks, you can hear the sincerity in his voice and the Holy Spirit love that is in his heart. He knows, that he knows, that he knows – that what he says is God’s truth. Why? Because he lived it. He experienced both the pain of the homosexual lie and the truth of God’s grace.
Jesus says this in Matthew 7:24-29
“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not act on them will be like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell—and great was its fall!” Now when Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were astounded at his teaching, for he taught them as one having authority, and not as their scribes.
People who heard Jesus knew that he was different. He had authority and conviction.
Are you a Christian who is not convicted that what the Word of God has to say about homosexuality is truly true because of our culture? Well, I would encourage you to visit www.JoeDallas.com and order some books and sign up for this webinar coming up on Saturday, February 3.
