Is Gay Sex a Sin – Values

This is a continuation of my exploration of this issue, started here.  In previous posts I have looked at the Bible and at Sin, and today wish to look to values.

Probably the biggest cause of the difference in opinion between Christians on this topic and any other is whether God is a God of judgement, or of love and forgiveness.  I have written elsewhere about how our underlying values can affect our decisions, and the difference between the two can cause an enormous gulf between resulting outcomes.  (As an aside, somehow we need to walk the tightrope between the two).  However, this is not quite what it seems, as whether God is judgemental or loving only affects our view if we think that the behaviour in question is wrong.  If there is nothing wrong with the behaviour then it is irrelevant whether God is loving or judgemental!

This doesn’t then help us answer the question above.  Back to the drawing board.
