– Balance is needed on this issue. The Lord calls us to care for the weak and champion justice (Acts 20:35; Matt 12:18, 23:23). He also calls us to be all about gospel ministry (Matt 28:18-20; 2 Cor 5:18-21)
– We should beware of giving ourselves to any method of achieving reconciliation that is not gospel-based. The gospel saves and sanctifies. The gospel reconciles. (Rom 1:16; Gal 1:8; Eph 2:11-16)
– We should always speak the truth in love, returning conversations like these to the gospel.
– This is not an issue to divide over. We can agree to disagree.
