Loving Those We Disagree With (Podcast)

We got a comment here from Gina recently, asking about how Christians can love homosexuals, and whether propositional truth might be at the core of our conflict. Those are great questions.

I’ve been thinking about putting out a call for questions from readers, which I would answer by way of 3- to 1o-minute podcasts. I want to make this a new and regular feature of this blog, mostly so that I can be responsive to your questions, but also so I can practice the art of podcasting, which is considerably different from public speaking. (I’m hoping you’ll give me some grace in the learning process.)

There were two questions in Gina’s comment, so this podcast runs almost all the way out to ten minutes.

As I post this I will also ask you to contact me with your questions. It has to be something bite-sized, since I want to keep these podcasts to a reasonable length.

    Tom, I appreciate your nuanced thoughts here. But in Gina’s question I hear a desire for something a bit more concrete & specific. What does it really look like in real, lived practice for a Christian to love a gay person?

    So much debate on these topics addresses the theoretical dimension of WHETHER or not it is possible to “love the sinner/hate the sin” but embarrassingly little time is usually devoted to imagining, brainstorming, or describing WHAT that loves looks like in real life. Ours in an incarnational faith that requires of us an ethic of lived, incarnational love.

    Would you say more about specific actions or conversations that you think would be helpful in making gay people feel loved by Christians?
