OC Pride Activism Spawns from False Teaching”

Why are so many activists for homosexuality coming out of Northwestern College and RCA Churches? Just talk to a few RCA Pastors, NWC administration or professors and ask a few questions.   Are homosexual actions sin? Is gay marriage OK or is it required to be one man, one woman?  YIPE!

The following is a response to an article written by Jason Lief, a Northwestern College professor of youth ministry.
