The Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (certified mind you) is having it’s annual conference on homosexuality October 5-7 in Louisville, Kentucky. Three days to talk about gays. According them:

The Christian community cannot only be known as the people who understand that homosexuality is wrong. It is a matter of urgent concern that we also be known as the people who move towards people struggling with homosexuality with the love, grace, power, and hope of Jesus Christ and walk with them through the door to real and lasting change.

Apparently this is a pray-away-the-gay symposium — with love, of course. Very effective I’m sure. But wait, there is an appetizer! On October 5 they are holding a Transgender Confusion and Transformational Christianity conference on Vimeo. There are five Christian speakers including Al Mohler. The other four are Owen Strachan, Denny Burk, Heath Lambert and Jim Hamilton. Five preachers not one of whom has any education in social science or medicine. Isn’t there something in the Bible about arrogance? Who, by the way is really confused?

Our culture is flooded with transgender confusion. The Christian Gospel speaks into this confusion with revolutionary clarity. God sovereignly assigns a gender to people created in his image. The powerful grace of Jesus Christ redeems and restores to sanity our thinking corrupted by sin. The church must speak with biblical conviction into this chaos with the clarity and love of Christ.
