A good church is not just a place which teaches a biblical sexual ethic, but a place where those who have not lived up to a biblical sexual ethic can be supported in repentance and recovery.
That, of course, is all of us.
The problem is that we can draw a division between the respectable sexual sins and the non-respectable ones. And in doing that, we effectively categorise some of us as ‘OK’ and some of us as ‘outcast’ – even if we don’t mean to.
Here are two excellent recent articles exploring how church can genuinely be a hospital for sinners in this area.
Both very challenging and helpful.
