Understand that hurt and judged people easily anticipate condemnation.

 The gay community has historically been approached as a community that “needs the truth told to them”, rather than a people to be loved, reached, and cared for.  It’s important to shift our perceived role in an LGBT person’s life from “truth teller” to “relational missionary”. Theology is important, but if I lead with theology (what I believe about sex and sexuality) then the person is likely to feel judged and assume I have one agenda in their lives – to make them feel conviction.  The truth is, I have no power (nor am I called) to make anyone turn from any sin.  The only agenda I want to have is to show someone the goodness and abundant life that comes from walking with Jesus.
