This conversation is with Sean Maney of First Light, a St. Louis based ministry that is dedicated to sexual integrity and helping people live a life according to God’s standards on sexuality. We start off the conversation talking about the same sex attraction in the church, the idea of identifying as a celebrate gay Christian, and then move on to talk about the broader issue that First Light is involved in, which is God’s standards on sexuality for everyone.
Alex has an academic background in Christian theology and philosophy. We talk about relating to transgender people, pronouns, homosexual marriage and Christian anarchy.
Pastor Greg Johnson is pastor of Memorial Presbyterian Church in St. Louis. We talk about his experience as a gay man; becoming a Christian; being in the unique place of affirming the biblical view of marriage between and man and woman while also identifying as gay; and being impacted by the message of Jesus’ forgiveness, reconciliation and hope. I hope you enjoy it.
