‘The Answer Is Absolutely No’—Steven Lawson Rebukes Begg’s Counsel on LGBTQ+ Weddings

“You have no business being there,” he added. “Because it is a travesty. It is a blasphemy. It is an abomination. It is not to be supported. It is not to be celebrated. It is to be repudiated. And it is to be exposed.”

The pastor warned that a Christian’s presence at an LGBTQ+ wedding is “celebrating this union and you cannot celebrate blatant, gross sin of the highest order.”

Lawson proceeded to quote late pastor and former Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) president Adrian Rogers’ words:

It is better to be divided by truth than to be united by error. It is better to speak the truth that hurts and then heals than to speak falsehood that comforts that then kills. It is not love and it is not friendship if we fail to declare the whole counsel of God. It is better to be hated for telling the truth than to be loved for telling a lie. It is better to stand alone with the truth than to be wrong with the multitude.

Marriage isn’t the “product of culture, society, or the result man’s thinking,” Lawson said, but rather “it is God and God alone in his infinite wisdom who has designed marriage.”

“There is the sanctity of marriage entering into a holy union, and those who are unholy are to be reproved for entering into that which God has made holy,” Lawson added.

Lawson concluded his rebuke by saying, “And so by even attending [an LGBTQ+ wedding], much less even bringing a gift, you are giving your endorsement of approval of what is taking place.”
