Can you help us find a church for our son who is gay?
Rick Brentlinger Answers -
This is an email I received recently asking for help in locating a gay-friendly church.
"My 18 year old son, who is Gay, has come out to us (his parents), but is fearful what others will think and is afraid that coming out publicly as gay will affect his career.
He loves the Lord with all his heart but believes the Pastor of his present church will reject him.
Can you help us find a church in his area?"
My first advice is to have your son read this vitally important information about Coming Out so that he understands the reasons why Coming Out is important and the reasons why Coming Out should always be the result of prayer and careful consideration of the consequences.
Second, regardless of what is decided about Coming Out, finding a good church is vitally important for gay and lesbian Christians who believe the Bible and want to honor God with their lives.
Here is a very helpful page which explains how to find a gay-friendly, gay-affirming church which believes the Bible.
I have to be honest and say that its not always possible to find a gay-friendly church in every area. Sometimes we have to settle for something less than what we desire, which can be frustrating.
