Homosexuality and Hamilton

John, drew my attention to Adam Hamilton's most recent sermon on homosexuality. Last night I had a good 30-40 minute conversation on this topic with some of my flock at a Bible Study. I think Adam does a good job with this topic (the first time he preached it was a while ago and it is included in the Confronting the Controversies Study he put out).

We need to interpret scripture through a lens, that lens is Jesus Christ the Word which became flesh. I think that is something I need to remind my congregation about more often.

BTW we are currently doing the Confronting the Controversies series in a Sunday School class I teach and we will be doing this discussion in a couple of weeks. I should be interesting in the fact that I think we all are battling the same questions but think we are alone in thinking this way.

That line struck me, too. I wrote it down as I was listening.
