1 Corinthians 6:17-20
“17 But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit. 18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. 19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.”
Tensions are rising in the public arena as well as the church regarding how to approach the gay agenda. How can we communicate the grace of God when we don’t agree on the definition of sin and how to handle it? Messy grace, for sure. And that is the name of the book by Pastor/Author Caleb Kaltenbach, who was raised by LGBT parents, marched in gay pride parades as a youngster, and experienced firsthand the hatred and bitterness of some Christians toward his family—and is now a born again Christian and a pastor. Listen in to this week’s and next week’s episode as we hear from Caleb on how best to understand and reach the LGBT community without compromising conviction.
Caleb Kaltenbach is a pastor, founder of The Messy Grace Group, and the author of Messy Grace and God of Tomorrow. He speaks widely on issues of faith, reconciliation, and sexual diversity. Caleb is a graduate of Talbot School of Theology (Biola University) and received his doctorate from Dallas Theological Seminary.
