Francis Chan on Homosexuality, San Francisco and Surrendering to the Glory of God

We’re called to love people with radical grace while holding fast to biblical conviction. This isn’t always easy.

At an event hosted by William Jessup University, Francis Chan gave a Q & A with the audience on hot-button cultural issues. One of the questions asked was, “How do you minister to those in San Francisco who are living in the homosexual lifestyle?”

Chan’s approach to the issue was focused on the glory of God and our submission to his plan. “What I say to people–whatever issue you are dealing with today–is are you willing to surrender to God, no matter what he says?”

He went on to say, “If you disagree with God on an issue, would you still submit to him? I really believe that’s the core issue here.”
