Seven considerations before talking about marriage, sexuality and gender

time-to-learn

  1. It is possible to disagree with someone’s opinion about marriage, sexuality and gender without rejecting his person.
  2. Tolerance on these matters is only a virtue when there is disagreement. Tolerance is most evident when we strongly disagree but treat each other with respect.
  3. Tolerance is unnecessary where there is forced agreement on ways of thinking and talking about marriage, sexuality and gender. Coercion removes the need for tolerance because it is intolerant of different opinions.
  4. If there is a Creator who has revealed His purpose and will for us, we should pursue that will in humble confidence that we flourish best in it.
  5. Humans are beings of dignity made in the image and likeness of God and capable of making choices about morality and lifestyle.
  6. Beliefs on marriage, sexuality, and gender should be formed by seeking the best understanding our Creator’s will.
  7. Living consistently with the Creator’s will on marriage, sexuality and gender will be a struggle for all people because we are fallen beings with desires that conflict with the will of God.
