I have been burdened about the near epidemic trend of couples living together outside of marriage. We have many such couples in my area (mainly 20-somethings) who have little to nothing to do with church until they desire to use our facilities for baby showers, wedding showers, house-warming showers, etc. I have talked to at least one other pastor about this and he basically says he allows such functions in order to keep the lines of communication open with such couples. However, he balks at the notion of homosexual couples desiring to use church facilities in like manner (as do I). My point is this: sin is sin...shouldn't we take as firm a stand against heterosexual sin as we do homosexual? I've proposed to my church that we prohibit such functions in our church in both cases. I have received opposition from a very vocal minority of our congregation, but most have been supportive. Am I doing more harm than good?
