Filmmakers stand by use of homosexual star

How did a team of evangelical Christians end up casting a gay activist to star in End of the Spear, their film about slain missionaries?

That has taken explaining, especially to conservative Christians. And helping the film team do that has been public relations expert Larry Ross.

Ross, an evangelical Christian whose company specializes in working with and for faith-based groups, said the filmmakers didn't learn that Chad Allen is gay until after they cast him.

Although the leaders of Oklahoma-based Every Tribe Entertainment disapprove of homosexuality, they chose to keep Allen in End of the Spear, Ross said. ``It was very much a considered ministry decision to demonstrate the love of Christ and to be consistent with the message of the film, which is about forgiveness,'' Ross said. ...

I agree that a sinner is a sinner regardless of the sin. But the uproar is that the other "non-Christians who have acted in Christian movies" were not known for ACTIVELY promoting their sins of which homosexuality is particularly egregious.

1 Corinthians 6:18,19 - Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

I'm kind of mixed about this issue. Yes he is a homosexual. However, the main issue is that he is a sinner, just like everyone else. No doubt, there have been non-Christians who have acted in Christian movies previously, but that has not caused an uproar.

Sure his sin may be different than others. But truly in God's eyes a sinner is a sinner.

"The message of the film....is about forgiveness", Ross said.
Sounds like Ross suffers from a modern malady,i.e. convenient amnesia.
What happened to repentance FIRST, forgivness second?.huh

"The modern Liberal will use it to describe him/herself. Yet they would'nt know the Bible from the Bus Timetable."

But would insist that the bus timetable was in fact the Bible and then insist on unity for his conclusion.

One problem is the definition of the word "evangelical."
Used as an adjective of the Christian today, means that it's meaning and application have "travelled."

*Dictionary circa 18th century:
"Evangelical - Agreeable to Gospel; Consonant to the Christian law revealed in the Holy Gospel; Contained in the Gospel."

In some quarters today it can even simply mean a zeal for something especially speaking and debating.

The modern Liberal will use it to describe him/herself. Yet they would'nt know the Bible from the Bus Timetable.
