The gotcha question - what if your teenage son was gay?

  8/30/2015

This is one of those questions that some people think is the gotcha question.  They think that Christians cannot answer this question.  They think that this question means that we cannot tell our son or daughter to avoid homosexuality.

The culture and media have brainwashed a lot of people with this question. 

But it’s not true.  The only way to make this true is to change the definition of love.  They use this question to redefine love as if it were hate.  They tell the public that if you son or daughter wants to be gay you must affirm them or you are hating them.  But that is not true.  Love is not hate. 

Love is not silence, it takes action to save someone from danger even when they don't realize they are in danger.  That is what Christ did, he loved us so much that he died for us while we were in danger and we didn't even realize we were in danger.  - Romans 5:8 

The real definition of love is found in 1 Cor. 13:4.

“Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth …”

Love does not rejoice in unrighteousness.  If we love our son and daughter we will not rejoice when they are involved in unrighteous sexuality.  Rather, love rejoices with the truth, because the truth sets people free. 

If we truly love our son or daughter we will do everything we can to keep them from the dangers of sexual immorality.  In fact, if we don't reach out to them with the truth we are refusing the love them.  Jesus showed us that love is not easy.  

Ray Comfort have a great video interview about this.  Here is a young man who is asked this gotcha question. His response unfolds the deception behind the question.
