How We Speak To Various Groups.

In his blog post 'The Church and Homosexuality: Ten Commitments' Kevin Deyoung mentions how we may speak to various groups regarding this issue. I thought these were very good and easily adaptable beyond just one issue.

  • If we are speaking to cultural elites who despise us and our beliefs, we want to be bold and courageous. 
  • If we are speaking to strugglers who fight against same sex attraction, we want to be patient and sympathetic. 
  • If we are speaking to sufferers who have been mistreated by the church, we want to be apologetic and humble. 
  • If we are speaking to shaky Christians who seem ready to compromise the faith for society’s approval, we want to be persuasive and persistent. 
  • If we are speaking to liberal Christians who have deviated from the truth once delivered for the saints, we want to be serious and hortatory. 
  • If we are speaking to gays and lesbians who live as the Scriptures would not have them live, we want to be winsome and straightforward. 
  • If we are speaking to beligerent Christians who hate or fear homosexuals, we want to be upset and disappointed.
