I have to say, I was very surprised at your headline ‘Leading Evangelical calls for church to embrace same-sex relationships’ and even more shocked to find that the evangelical leader making this statement was Rev Steve Chalke. I don’t know how his times of prayer and Bible study enabled him to come to the view that the Bible – God’s Word – is supportive of same-sex marriage. I’m all for the Church being inclusive of people from all sectors of society, but the Bible does state that God is holy, and expects those who say they are His followers to abide by His commandments. I don’t see where same-sex marriage is a part of His plan for humanity in the Scriptures whatsoever. I can only conclude Rev Chalke is totally misguided. He is in my prayers.
