It is commonly said that churches that believe that homosexual acts are sinful are alienating themselves from our culture and therefore undermining their own mission.
This article looks at the research to test that assumption and finds that it is entirely wrong. Those who argue that the church must abandon biblical teaching in order to grow have to deal with the fact that it is the more liberal mainline churches that are declining rapidly and the more conservative churches that are growing (at least in the USA).
Somewhat surprisingly, research also shows that those identifying as gay or lesbian are 2.5 times more likely to attend a church with more conservative views!
We can easily be intimidated by what sounds logical in a society now very supportive of homsexual acts but maybe the facts reveal that God is doing something very different. Read the article for yourself.
