Welcome to Part 3 of this week’s installment of “Consider This Perspective” with Alan Chambers.  This series is off to a good start, introducing us to perspectives from folks all across the board on faith and sexuality.  If you haven’t already, please read our introductory statements to this interview in which we speak openly about LOVEboldly’s perspective on Sexual Orientation Change Efforts (SOCE’s) and listen to Part 1 and Part 2 of the interview.

I hope you enjoy Part 3 of the interview in which Alan talks about mixed-orientation relationships and future efforts of Exodus International.

Keep the comments kind, productive, and helpful – but also feel free to express raw emotion in response to what you hear here.

  1. Thank you Alan for your very bold and brave transparency in this session 3 interview. So proud of you! I know this will be helpful to others.

  2. This series of interviews has been very enlightening. Thank you so much for airing them! I am glad to see that Exodus is acknowledging the pain inflicted (however well-intentioned) by past espousals of positions and organizations that were so focused on “fixing” what they saw as wrong with LGBTQ Christians. This new path will be a very difficult one for them to navigate, especially as they try to rebuild bridges, but it is certainly a more healthy, productive, Christ-like approach to what they feel God is calling them to do. While I still disagree with some of the basic views that Alan expressed, there is room for open, civil conversation, as he said, rather than a feeling of beating one’s head against a brick wall of bigotry.

    • Hi Marlene,
      Thanks for listening! I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed them and have been enlightened as a result. I too am glad to see some of the steps Exodus is taking towards publicly acknowledging their failures and working to correct them. I hope they continue forward with this, because I think there is a lot of repair to be done. I agree with you – the work ahead of them is going to be difficult. I have been praying that they would have the wisdom and integrity to move forward in a way that honors God and the LGBT community, and which would show true and lasting repentance for shortcomings.
