A Matter of Integrity: The Bible and homosexuality

Steve Chalke has helped the Church to engage in the debate around LGB+T inclusion and same-sex marriage. Steve’s article, A Matter of Integrity, published in 2013, called the Church to grapple with the issues of sexuality and inclusion. He has called for Christians to face what he describes as the central issue, asking “what does real, Christ-like, inclusion look like?”

Steve’s article marked the first time in history that a well-known evangelical Christian leader publicly declared their support for loving, faithful and committed same-sex relationships.
