"God hates sin but not the sinner" Engaging the LGBT Community Covenant Marriage - Covenant Church (Part 2) 1 Cor 6:9-11 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor [the] covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God. The major sin is rejecting God and living in open rebellion against him Truth and Compassion Engage the mind AND the heart What are our thoughts as a church? Christians are actually behind the ball on this issue The LGBT advocates have put in a lot of work to put Christians on the defensive. No logic will work without reaching the heart STR caller This topic is an emotional one not a logical one: Largest social issue this generation has faced We must have the proper mindset first before tackling the details of this issue 2 Cor 5:18-19 - Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Watch for changes in category: from Impersonal to Personal. Ideas to People Gen 1:26 - Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness..." 2 Peter 3:9 - The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. Will we accept them back into the church? It is NOT "being" gay or acting out on gay feelings or tendencies

(Complimentarianism) Is there a way you two work as a team to fulfill God's kingdom? To each other and to those outside of our marriage Iron sharpens Iron. (Prov 27:17) Our marriages sharpen other marriages Follow my example as I follow Christ's example (1 Cor 11:1) Our marriages are an example for other marriages to follow Great Commission (Matt 28:19) My marriage produces disciples, in and out of my house Do not forsake fellowship (Heb 10:25) My marriage promotes a healthy community and makes others want to be involved 1 Peter 3:15 Be prepared to answer questions. 53% of Very Happy Couples agree with the statement, "God is at the center of our marriage" (compared to 7% of Struggling Couples). 30% of Struggling Couples disagree with the statement, "God is at the center of our marriage." Highly happy couples tend to put God at the center of their marriage and focus on Him, rather than on their marriage or spouse, for fulfillment and happiness Nominal Christians (Christians by name only) “20% more likely than the general population to get divorced” Catholic couples were 31% less likely to divorce; Protestant couples 35% less likely Jewish couples 97% Why is being unequally yoked an important issue? Marriage as an apologetic: A covenant marriage A sacred commitment between people Much deeper than a promise Not a contract/ not transactional Entered voluntarily 82% of couples say they want a marriage mentor, and couples who have a mentor couple say their marriage is happier and healthier. Leading by example. Is my marriage evidence that God exists? How does your marriage re-affirm and proclaim God? How does it bring you closer to God? Does your marriage bring others closer to God? Does my marriage show the love of God?
