Preston Sprinkle, one of the original advisory board members of Revoice, the “gay Christian” movement within Evangelical churches, has been instrumental in shifting the church’s doctrinal stance on homosexuality and other aberrant sexualities. It is through Sprinkle’s extensive relationships with mainstream Evangelical leaders James Merritt, Matt Chandler, and even names like Beth Moore, that he has been able to popularize what was once denounced as forbidden fruit by Evangelicals.
In a video clip published by Q Ideas, a ministry that is dedicated to mainstreaming controversial theological takes within Evangelical churches, Preston Sprinkle says that “listening” has been the most important factor in earning the trust of the LGBTQ community when attempting to reach them. He also platforms open homosexuals and “transgenders” who proudly proclaim they are attracted to people of the same sex and have embraced that identity, even while calling themselves Christians.
In a recent podcast on “parenting LGBTQ children,” Sprinkle and his guest, Bill Henson, come to an agreement that it is “good parenting” for Christian parents to allow their homosexual children to start dating people of the same sex while still living in their home. The reason for doing so, is that even if you don’t “approve” of it, you’re still “loving” them by allowing them to make these decisions on their own and maintain a relationship with them.
