Posted on 06/07/2014 2:20:39 PM PDT by yongin
My denomination is dealing these days with a pastor in California who reversed his position on homosexuality. The pastor said that his shift coincided with his 15 year-old sons announcement that he is gay. This is a situation every Christian should think through, now. As Ive said before, at stake on the issue of a Christian sexual ethic is the gospel of Jesus Christ. But what if, sitting across from you, is your child or grandchild?
You will, without a doubt, have someone close to you in your family come out as gay or lesbian, if not already, then sometime in the future. How should a Christian parent or grandparent respond?
One of the reasons this is such a crushing experience for many is because they assume that their alternatives are affirmation or alienation. I either give up my relationship with my child or I give up the Bible. The gospel never suggests this set of alternatives, and in fact demonstrates just the opposite.

Tell them it is wrong and you will pray for them
What if your child is a thief? an adulterer? a murderer? etc....do you just throw out Biblical teaching????
If your kid is gay then he need psychiatric help to make he’s normal again.
and tell them they are too young to be having sex, period
If your kid is gay then he need psychiatric help to make him normal again.
You’re going to love your own child no matter what wrong he or she has done. That does not mean accepting the wrong. You don’t.
What if your child is a shoplifter?
“You will, without a doubt, have someone close to you in your family come out as gay or lesbian, if not already, then sometime in the future”
This is delusional. Its 2% of the damn population. You are actually incredibly unlikely to have this happen, the reason it is happening at all is that our culture promotes deviancy and degeneracy as noble virtues.
A British reporter recently went to southern Russia in the wake of the homosexual propaganda law and had an informal discussion with some average Russian middle-aged men who took him hunting. He asked them what they’d do any of their sons told them they were homosexual. The response of one of the men was “that wouldn’t happen”. And he’s right, unless the culture promotes it or their is some internal family dynamic, it doesn’t happen.
Here’s an interesting article by Russell Moore, the Director of the Ethics Life Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptists. I am pleasantly surprised by Russell Moore. When Russell Moore became the Director, I thought he was a wishy, washy moderate. Prior to becoming the Director, Russell Moore was a staff worker for Congressman Gene Taylor. Moore even named one of his sons after Taylor. Even he considers himself to be a political moderate, I’m glad he has his head straight on spiritual matters.
Inform him the odds of him truly being a mentally ill homo are less than 2%.
Well, apparently liberal thinking Christians are throwing out Biblical teaching, in the area of homosexuality.
People who presumably not disavow Biblical teachings about thievery or adultery, do disavow in the area of homosexuality.
Why homosexuality is deemed so special as to warrant this distinction, I have no idea.
I doubt it's even half that.
I will find out the root of why they think so and work with them to understand why they are not homosexual.
Then I will find out who abuse them and kill them.
Tell him you are proud of him for making such a courageous decision and that you will be there to support him through this trying time.
Three weeks later he will be straight again.
I would suggest to him that he is probably mistaken. If he persisted in that pathology, I would advise him to seek professional help. If he refused and elected to wallow in his perversion, I would inform him in no uncertain terms that I would continue to love him, but that that part of his life was not welcome under my roof.
What if you found out your child was ______
6) addicted to: (porn, drugs, alcohol, etc)
Sin is sin and should be addressed in the same manner. Tell the person that what they are doing is wrong, why it is wrong and how to get right with God.
Depending on age that just might be true.
Well ... he was born that way. [/s]
