The point of this painstaking evaluation of Greear’s public statements on homosexuality is not to try and show that Greear is some sort of false teacher or liberal theologian. Far from it. We assume the best about Greear and his words, and we are thankful for his clear stand in clearly proclaiming, along with the word of God, that homosexuality is sin. Yet we wonder why Greear would strike a tone that distances him from the historic position and practice of the Church on the topic of homosexuality. We hope in light of the concerns expressed here that President Greear and others might be in a better position to see some of the reasons why some people are upset by Greear’s words, and some of the reasons why others hope Greear might choose to be more forthcoming and clear about this topic of homosexuality in the future.
