As a new feature on ACL, we want you to have a voice. So we are providing a summary of one section from our latest podcast and want to hear from you; are we on track or did we miss something? In this weeks podcast, we answer a question from friend of the show, Tony Vance (@TonyVance1966), “Are transgender issues worth fighting?”
Gene: The issues at hand affect large groups and in a sense, we didn’t pick the fight but we are faced with it. Because this issue is before us, we owe it to the world to share the truth which will naturally conflict with other worldviews. In that way, it’s not a fight worth fighting but it is an issue worth educating even at the cost of conflict.
Nate: The ‘who’ in the fight should be referenced to the church. The church doesn’t need to advocate legislative change but we can see biblical models (specifically Acts) of the church speaking up against moral issues based on their personal convictions.
Anything that is a clear sin is a clear position for the church to stand in opposition
Logan: Any issue which contains moral implications are worth fighting. We aren’t fighting transgenders we are fighting the morality of transgender issues. The church has an obligations to stand up for the source of morality and the more we ignore it the more it grows.
Who do you agree with? What are your thoughts? Should the church stand in opposition of transgender issues? Leave comments below.
