16:18 Podcast - 2.3 LGBTQ+C? In this episode, I share a conversation I recently had about LGBTQ+-ism and Christianity. Where does humanistic and Biblical morality clash?

My conversation with him turned to the Gospel: how we are all sinful from conception (Psalm 139), how we all deserve death (Romans 3:23), but how Jesus came as...
