This video is making the rounds on the internets today. N.T. Wright's thoughts on same-sex marriage are spot on, biblical, and refreshingly God-centered. I've said this before, but I think when we go right to the issue of homosexual behavior being a sin, we muddy the waters from the get go. Is it a sin? Yes. But so is gossip and divorce and lust and unbelief and so much more. The Christian blogosphere expends so much energy on the ins and outs and details of rights and sins and loves and politics. I earnestly believe that we need to constantly back way, way up, back to Genesis 1, before the creation of man and woman, before sin entered the world, and look at God's cosmic design for creation and his kingdom. Marriage between same genders becomes a non-issue at that point.
N.T. Wright says it better.
