Jesus is not our supreme example of love? According to some Christians, Jesus can’t be.

Enough Light

I recently read this book: Washed and Waiting, Reflections on Christian Faithfulness & Homosexuality by Wesley Hill (updated and expanded edition), Zondervan 2010, 2016.

It will take a few words to get to what the title of my post is about…

First a mini book review. I do recommend Washed and Waiting. Wesley Hill is an evangelical Christian with same-sex attraction since his youth, and he has chosen a life of single celibacy rather than disregard biblical teaching on this issue. In other words, he is a celibate gay Christian. He could not get rid of his same-sex attractions, and acting on them was not an option either. The book is honest, and he shares his struggles. The back cover of the book says: “He offers a fresh perspective, advocating neither unqualified ‘healing’ for those who struggle nor accommodation to temptation, but rather faithfulness in the midst of brokenness.”
