Scripture is very clear on homosexuality and gender roles, and is the final authority. So how do we speak the truth in love? (Ephesians. 4:15) By calling them sodomites? Wouldnâ€™t the best way to reach the transgender community start by addressing them as they identify, and then proceed with repentance and the gospel truth? That Jesus suffered, bled and died for the sins they are actively practicing.
Isaiah 2:22- Stop regarding man, whose breath of life is in his nostrils; For why should he be esteemed? This is unfortunate and a sad telling of the direction the church has been headed. Conforming to the culture and not to Godâ€™s Word.

Unless there's a power glitch, isn't this a significant accretion of barnacles (e.g., sermons, commentaries, etc) that must eventually be scraped from our many Protestant hulls? (E.g., In some cases there is a single significant doctrine with 10+ different sermon definitions.)
Also, whatever happened to Luther's teaching on private interpretation? How is this even possible today with 1000s of good online sermons, instantly beamed to our hand-helds, which, however, constantly distract us from the study of the biblical text -- black-letters-on-white-page -- alone?
How can these collections of fine conservative sermons, ultimately, be in compliance with Sola Scriptura? Perhaps listeners are conservative now, but -- by-and-by -- by listening to these sermons instead of reading the Bible only, won't many of these listeners -- who, through laziness, have departed from reading the Pure Text alone -- inadvertently end in the liberal dust bin of history?
Note: The average American now reads no more than 4 lines on a screen or page. Hard to read and study the Bible with this almost illiterate-level of, self-induced, attention deficit.
