Turning a Kind Eye

Pete Briscoe

The Word and Politics: Looking at the Issues 

When election time approaches and debates fill the airwaves, certain social issues become fodder for discourse. Behind most social problems stand people—broken people, hurting people, real people. Unfortunately, we have historically either "turned a blind eye" or shouted so loudly that no one has listened. 

In this series, Pete Briscoe encourages us to "turn a kind eye" toward the people behind the issues. The evangelical church has been called to be salt and light to a dark, dying, and desperate world. Salt was used as a preservative in the ancient world, and as Christ lives His life through us, we are called to battle the decay in our culture and share the light of Jesus.

  5. 6. Homosexuality

    Pete Briscoe

    For people attracted to the same sex, the church is often the last place they want to be. But what if, as a Church, we make it a place they can come, hear the Truth, and experience God's love?

    Whether you are personally struggling with same-sex attraction or you want to reach out to those who are, Pete shows us what Scripture says about homosexuality. Our sexual identity is deeply rooted in our created bodies, so how do we accept the truth of our being? And how, as a Church, can we guide others to God's truth and love?
