Gay marriage is one of the most polarizing issues of our time. It has often proven to be an unassailable issue for families and has managed to threaten the unity of local churches and entire denominations. In the middle of this crisis stand individuals who remain confused and perplexed because their personal experience is confronted by the church’s testimony to traditional marriage. It is imperative that Christians thoughtfully engage this topic while retaining its prophetic voice on gender complementarity. However, it is desperately necessary for churches to learn how to compassionately walk alongside gay Christians who want to remain faithful to following Jesus in our difficult contemporary context.
