Sexual identity has become a central aspect of cultural changes in the past few decades. Not only has society broadened its sexual ethic and expanded its definition of marriage and family, evangelical Christians have wrestled to understand and welcome openly gay believers like they understand and welcome those whose lives are colored by alcoholism, anxiety, greed, and pornography. In short, the balance of grace and truth is challenging. This sermon provides a brief history of the LGBTQ ascendance, key terms, a look at key texts about gay sexual practice, and four postures for responding like Jesus.

The fall affects us all in different ways. Some people are born into generational poverty. Others are born with brain defects. Some people inherit addictive or angry tendencies. Others grow up with same-sex attractions. But all of us is accountable to God for how we steer our lives toward his righteous standard. This sermon will explore our corrupt past, crooked path, complicated period, God's glorious plan to change us, and our need for supports in the meantime.
