Reason #4: The Church Hates Gay People

Classic Service | Modern Service | Audio

All kinds of people – including those who felt shut out by religion – felt welcomed by Jesus. In "Reason # 4: The Church Hates Gay People,” Pastor Dave Gustavsen and Art Periera discuss how we’ve failed (as a church and individuals) in loving our LGBT communities. They challenge us to be more like Jesus, leading with grace and truth, in our posture towards our LGBT friends and neighbors.
