“Loneliness is the greatest plague of our generation. The fight for gay-marriage is simply a response to it. Church, we are doing something wrong in our approach. Until we can be a nest of intimate friendships and a holistic community for the lonely, estranged, and non-married, a traditional sexual ethic will never be attractive.”

I wrote that last week in a bit of frustration over the responses I’ve been reading about the recent SCOTUS ruling, and I wanted to follow-up on explicitly what I meant by those words.

I, too, was single and single ‘again’ (& a single parent) for many years. It is natural for mankind to desire and need ‘touch/affection’: to give it and receive it. The Church is meant to be a place where that need can be met in a godly, healthy and satisfying way! It is astounding how much a healthy touch or a godly/brotherly/sisterly hug can minister ‘life & encouragement’ to a person!! We need God’s love; His discernment; His direction & affection for one another! If those of us in The Body of Christ would, in fact and in act BE HIS ARMS AND LEGS – HIS HEART AND HIS MIND (His BODY) in this dark and hurting world as we are meant to be- and see that those ‘legitimate needs’ are met in ‘legitimate ways’ (healthy/ godly ways) then many would not be going elsewhere to have those needs met in ungodly and unhealthy ways!!
