How to Converse about LGBTQ+
Since this is Pride month, I’m spending this week sharing some words of wisdom from HarvestUSA’s John Freeman, on how to remain faithful when others embrace lgbtq+ theology. John tells us to be sure to engage others and ask good questions. As others voice their disagreement with you, realize that all worldviews stem from past experiences, wounds, and powerful emotions wrapped around sinful and twisted hearts. While we cannot correct others’ views and convictions, which is the work of the Holy Spirit, we can try to better understand them by diving more into their story, who they are, and why they believe what they believe. This usually happens through genuine listening and asking good questions, which often helps people drop their defenses, leading to more productive, non-combative conversations. Also, consider sharing your testimony, particularly highlighting your need of God’s grace. Thanks john, for helping us love others while remaining firm in God’s Word.
