#806 – What Does the Term ‘Gay Christian’ Actually Mean? Dr. Greg Coles

Preston Sprinkle

Theology in the Raw

GregColes is back! Actually, he never left. We just split our conversation into two parts. In our first conversation, Greg shared about his coming out story and what advice he’d give to parents with gay kids, and to gay Christians who are thinking of coming out. Speaking of “gay Christians,” that phrase is super debated, misunderstood, and has become the subject of much turmoil in the evangelical community. Greg helps us understand what people mean and don’t mean by the phrase. We also talk about other words and phrases like “homosexual,” “the gay lifestyle,” “practicing homosexual,” “same-sex attraction,” and “the gay agenda.” And we discuss whether same-sex attraction, or “being gay,” is itself a morally culpable sin from the perspective of a traditional Christian sexual ethic.

Here’s the blog series Greg and I referenced in the video:
