Episode 7: Understanding the Same-Sex Marriage Debate

Summit Ministries

In his recent book, Same-Sex Marriage, coauthored with Sean McDowell, John Stonestreet unpacks how those who follow Christ can faithfully answer the standard talking points for same-sex marriage, what God meant marriage to be, and why it is so important to defend the definition of marriage as an institution between a man and woman.

The key to approaching this subject is not a contentious attitude towards those who believe in same-sex marriage, but a winsome perspective that is faithful to Christ, committed to truth and shaped by a love for God and others. Christians need to know that because Christ has risen, there is no such thing as “all hope is lost.” They are still called to engage culture even if they are viewed as wrong, illegal and intolerant.

John Stonestreet is the senior content advisor for Summit Ministries and host of The Point, a daily radio show heard around the world.
