Lead Them Home strongly discourages Christians from making a (distorted) faith statement by denying basic consumer services to LGBT+ persons. Such actions are unacceptably discriminatory.
For the purposes of THIS post, the divisive issue of services involving same-sex wedding ceremonies is not considered. The focus of THIS post is “everyday” consumer products and services.
“One” believer posting on Facebook seems to instantly and globally represent all evangelicals. One Christian business owner who lives out the Gospel by denying auto repair service to LGBT+ customers casts a wide shadow over the entire evangelical community. This is tragic.
This post offers ZERO judgment toward the auto shop owner involved in this situation. Our experience tells us that he is likely a very kind person sincerely seeking to please God in his business practices. The discriminatory posture is a blind spot – and all humans, religious or not, operate with blind spots. You – and I – are no different than this man.
That said, this kind of Christian witness must be addressed. With humility and sincerity of heart, Lead Them Home will offer a FREE 2-hour Skype Posture Shift seminar to ANY Christian business owner who thinks it is godly and biblical to deny service to LGBT+ customers. Our training will NOT compromise your biblical position, but it will radically shift your posture.
To the LGBT+ Community, Lead Them Home is not in the auto repair business. If we were, we would definitely fix your car! Thankfully, there are MANY evangelical business owners who do this every day!
