BLOG ON: SERMON Witness to a Homosexual (1)
Pulpit and Streets
Michael Coughlin
This is a copy of the PDF "How to Witness to a Homosexual" and the audio with the same title.

This is part 1 of the post.

When I was asked to write an article titled, “How to Witness to a Homosexual,” my initial impression was to wonder why we even need an article with this title. I guess I never really thought about it much. I’ve evangelized homosexuals before; often not even realizing they are homosexual. But the more I thought about it, the more it made sense for an article of this nature. What is apparent is that many homosexuals can get very angry when their views are challenged; they may even come across as threatening. There is also a significant portion of homosexuals who are actually so kind that an evangelist may not want to offend them by presenting the gospel in its entirety. Other homosexuals are so agreeable and skilled at friendly conversation that it can be tricky to convince them that they do not already believe as you do! As well, our society is so bent on protecting the feelings of homosexuals you may even feel you could be in some legal danger as the result of your speech! It seems clear that witnessing to a homosexual can be a difficult task; even a scary one. In the next paragraph, I’ve copied the previous paragraph, but notice: I’ve replaced the word ‘homosexual,’ with the word ‘person’ or ‘people.’

Look at the difference between the two paragraphs; should I say: the similarities? What is apparent is that many people can get very angry when their views are challenged; they may even come across as threatening. There is also a significant portion of people who are actually so kind that an evangelist may not want to offend them by presenting the gospel in its entirety. Other people are so agreeable and skilled at friendly conversation that it can be tricky to convince them that they do not already believe as you do! As well, our society is so bent on protecting the feelings of people you may even feel you could be in some legal danger as the result of your speech! It seems clear that witnessing to a person can be a difficult task; even a scary one. What’s the point, you may ask? The point is that there is really no such thing as witnessing to a homosexual. You witness to men, women, children; human beings. When you witness to someone, you tell a person who is hopelessly lost in sin about the Great God and Savior Jesus Christ who freely offers salvation to all who trust in Him by faith alone. It is irrelevant exactly which sins they commit for the purposes of sharing the basics of the gospel. An unrepentant heterosexual, who does nothing more than lust after a single woman in his mind, is condemned just as the most promiscuous homosexual. Both of these sinners need to understand their status before a Holy God repent and trust in the death, burial and resurrection of Christ for forgiveness of sins. So I would contend that “How do I witness to a homosexual?” is the wrong question. I don’t say that to reprimand you, as much as I simply want to put it on your mind that you do not need to cower to any sin-groups’ “pet sins.”
