Seeing as these comments are cleared by a moderator, my request would be that this video be taken down. I think that this is too heavy of a topic to have a message like this left in eternal cyber space when Eddie and I were literally put on the spot. This discussion deserves just that... more of a discussion. My request would be to pull it down. Matthew Gamble Lead Pastor Elmshaven SDA Church (aka The Haven Napa Valley) (206) 423-1991

The issue about sexuality is one that our world and even Christendom have struggled with for ages. It's really difficult getting many mixed messages from people who think they have the answer to this issue. I think a better approach is to come humbly and acknowledge our limitations when it comes to explaining things relating to sexuality. If really someone's "wired" heterosexually, that person has no jurisdiction telling someone who's "wired" homosexually about how to act, what to do and itís appropriateness. Let the person with the relevant credibility offer the advice. These video comments by the pastors provide "correct" answers which as an opinion donít help. Those who crucified Jesus also thought they were protecting the laws of God, so itís important to know sometimes, we, mortals can have issues twisted. We should just be careful in our conclusions.
