203- Who Are You? | with guest Andrew Bunt

Posted by: WCSG & Hole In My Heart | Thursday, August 24th, 2023 (12:00am)

It’s the season seven launch!!

We are so glad to be back with you all, and are equally glad to engage last season’s identity theme one more time to ensure we take it from the ethereal to the practical.

The person here to help us do this is the author of ‘Finding Your Best Identity’ and ministry leader, Andrew Bunt. Andrew joins the team today to talk about:

—How can we know which parts of us are the true us, and which are not?

—Is sexual identity and gender identity core to who we are?

—How can we engage the world’s mantra of “Listen to your heart” to know who you are?

—How can we engage the world’s other mantra of “Let others define who you are”?

 

EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS:

“Questions of sexuality and gender...have become so tied to identity in the cultural context around us that when people hear that out of faithfulness to Jesus I am choosing not to have a relationship with another man, people say, ‘Well, isn’t God asking you to deny who you really are?’ It’s seen as so core to identity… it’s considered bad news for somebody like me.” —Andrew Bunt

“We are who God says we are. This actually frees us from defining ourselves by what we feel inside or defining ourselves based on the opinions of others.” —Andrew Bunt “I define identity as ‘our controlling self understanding.’” —Andrew Bunt

“My sexuality describes me. I am attracted to other guys. I am same-sex attracted, gay, whatever language you want to use. I am not denying that. I am not ashamed of that…But that describes part of my experience. It doesn’t define me. What defines me is that I have been adopted by God as his child.” —Andrew Bunt

 

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: What was (or is) your favorite school supply? (You guys sure love some Lisa Frank! Lol)
