Welcoming vs. affirming

In the LGBTQ debate there is a demand that for a church to be welcoming, it must also affirm people’s lifestyle. Trevin Wax highlights the problem with that – it’s not the church’s business to be affirming anyone.

“What is the crux of the problem here? It’s the expectation that the church would be in the business of affirming anyone at all. The Bible teaches that God’s righteousness cuts us all down to size. If a church were to close its doors to sinners, it would be empty. And if a church were to empty itself of only some kinds of sinners, it would soon be full only of self-righteousness. Better then for the church to close its doors entirely.”
