Love Is an Orientation

Andrew Marin: Elevating the Conversation With the Gay Community

Love Is an Orientation:
Elevating the Conversation With the Gay Community
By Andrew Marin (IVP)
A 2010 Outreach Resource of the Year

“Love is an orientation that doesn’t scrutinize; rather, it observes. It doesn’t pick GLBT people’s lives apart, call down judgment on them or, conversely, give them dispensation to be and do whatever they want. Love doesn’t dismiss bad behavior or even outright falsehood, but love actively, concretely seeks the best for another. Striking that fine balance is difficult. It can only come after being convinced that we have been released to love freely in conjunction with the knowledge that in another’s life, God is rightfully utilizing His time in enigmatic ways.” —Andrew Marin, from the book
