Do we expect an unsaved person to live free in the Truth BEFORE the Truth has set him or her Free? How unLoved has this man felt at the hands and feet of those who punched and kicked him in the name of God? And not just him, but all who have suffered beatings and epithets and discrimination and isolation -- which are NOT our privilege to administer in our Great Commission. The question is, for me anyway, How can we GIVE them ENOUGH LOVE to help them overcome their reasonable fear -- Not of God, but of US?

If the Bible is “a radically pro-slavery document” (Dan Savage), how is it that Christians who successfully fought for the abolition of slavery in the 18th and 19th centuries based their opposition to slavery on that very same Bible? The answer is simple: The Bible is actually not “a radically pro-slavery document.”

According to Savage (following atheist Sam Harris), “the Bible got the easiest moral question that humanity has ever faced wrong. Slavery! What’re the odds that the Bible got something as complicated as human sexuality wrong? 100% percent.”

To be candid, it’s easy to see where Savage and Harris are...
