“People in different situations and with varying perspectives have asked us questions about the Bible’s teaching on homosexuality. Sometimes it is from a Christian struggling with this issue personally. Other times it is from a parent trying to love and guide a son or daughter while also wanting insight from a biblical perspective. Still others want to know our position as a matter of record. In a highly politicized world, where important matters are reduced to sound bites and shouting matches, it is crucial to remember that we’re dealing with people, not just issues…I want to offer ten basic biblical truths that guide Christian responses on this question. Like facets of a single diamond, they have to be taken together.” – Michael Horton
