Alan Chambers: A Conversation About Exodus International

I wanted to post the following video not in an attempt to stir the obvious debate in our culture & the church about the issue of homosexuality, but to really attempt to ask a greater question: Have we as the Church lost the meaning of having a Savior who came to truly die for our sin AND change our lives in the process? Even if that process takes a long time?

I’ll get straight to the point: From seeing the interviews with Alan Chambers, former president of Exodus International, I believe he and many others have essentially “retreated” from standing for Truth.  And yes, I did capitalize the “T” in Truth.  Chambers seems to think that a man or woman can have a living, active relationship with Jesus Christ and yet continue to live a homosexual lifestyle.

I believe he is in GREAT error in taking this position.  We are painted a picture in God’s Word that we are to continually “die” to our sin each and every day.  We must die to ourselves.  Romans 6:1-2 says: “What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? 2By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?” To me, it’s clear that no matter what the sin (anger, jealousy, adultery, or homosexuality), we are to enter a process of death to sin as we embrace the grace that Jesus Christ offers us, because he has forgiven us.

Regardless, I wanted to post the video of Chambers to give you an idea of where I believe the culture is heading.  I would love your feedback and responses.  Do you agree with Chambers’ position? Disagree? Why? Write your comments below.
