Interview: Chad Thompson – Author of “Loving Homosexuals As Jesus Would

I read this book soon after it was published. It released me to love those in my life who are gay and it also grounded me in a biblical understanding of homosexuality. The prescription for the response of the church toward those who are struggling with same-sex attraction is spot-on. I’m delighted to re-blog this post from a blogger that I admire and an author who gives me an example of godly living.

        If churches and individual Christians aren’t discerning and proactive (as we are commanded to be), if we don’t get involved and love successfully in practical and tangible ways – someone else WILL love them first. Where is our passion and compassion? The transparent, genuine, walking alongside and burden-sharing type relationships? Living out real life – everyday?

        Thanks again for helping us all understand and be more understanding!
