A church that is an unsafe environment for a believer struggling with homosexual desires is also unsafe for any believer struggling in any way. And that kind of church communicates the truly threatening nature of its social environment subtly but clearly. No one opens up. Everyone is lonely.
As Francis Schaeffer used to teach us, may we hold together simultaneously both God’s holiness and his love in our relationships with one another.
