>How can we discern between helpful and unhelpful ways to reach out to our non-Christian neighbors? More particularly, how should we deal with the thorny subject of homosexuality or interact with those in our lives who deal with same-sex attraction? To help us navigate these waters, in this edition of White Horse Inn we talk with Rosaria Champagne Butterfield. She describes her previous life as a "lesbian feminist professor" in recently published book, The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert.How can we discern between helpful and unhelpful ways to reach out to our non-Christian neighbors?

  • Great interview, great points. All of struggle with sin in our lives, all of the time. I believe for each of us, there is a sin which looms largest and we struggle with the most. None of us can cast that first stone at anyone for homosexuality (or other sins), we should only lay down love, humility, and truth in the gospel.

    Christ died for that sin as well, and lived the perfect life we could not live in the place of that sin, whatever "that" sin might be in anyone's life. He is our only hope.

    Christopher, you're right Christ is our only hope that's why it's essential to speak the truth in love.

    Paul, tells us that if we find a brother in sin we should try to help them by snatching them out of the grip of their sin thereby saving some from hell.

    Love means telling people the TRUTH about sin. I think the problem some people have is the way we discuss sin as though it is exclusive to the person they are speaking with and they, themselves are free of any sin, which simply isn't true.

    Cancer is a deadly disease regardless of what kind it is, if you had it and your doctor withheld the truth from you he could be sued for malpractice because he/she did not reveal something that will surely kill you if not taken care of.

    When we who are Christians view sin like God does rather than focusing on a persons feeling or the fear we will feel from their rejection of us we will affirm the truth of God to them in love otherwise, not to do so is to hate them.

    Thanks for hosting the interview. It was wonderful. I spent the better part of the next four hours listening to youtube interviews, speeches and Q&As with her (I'm self employed and can listen as I work). Really well delivered stuff.

    An excellent segment!
    It was great to hear from someone who has "lived the life".
    The public radio station in my area has been increasing it's interviews and coverage on advocates for the "LGBQT" community.
    From the mainstream media reports, you would think it would be impossible for someone to have a choice other than to live an active sexual lifestyle with someone of the same sex.
    As the other comments mentioned, the greatest part of the segment was how it all ties into the sinful being of all of us, and how great God's love is that we can run to Christ and the cross for comfort, redemption and blessed assurance... we look away from ourselves, and turn to God.
    (and when I say 'we' I mean especially ME... from sins with minimal impact, to the ones that have large impact to me and those around me)

    I have liked listening to the WHI because it was one of the few Christian shows where you could just learn about theology and not be subjected to regular gay bashing. While some would not consider this interview bashing, it is if you were able to put yourself in another's place. Fine that R. Butterfield found happiness - we should all be so lucky. Everyone is different, however, and to basically say that male/female marriage is love and blessed while same sex marriage is a sin is bashing. Good news for most of you - Jesus loves you best because you are heterosexual or because you're trying to be!
