From the post:
“The surest way to guarantee you will lose a debate is to allow your opponent to define the terms, parameters, and worldview that will lie beneath your conversation. If we let them do this, our opponents will have won the argument before it even starts. While they pretend to be neutral, they are not. While they tell us to be open-minded, they are not.
In what TE Greg Johnson is calling a “war,” a thoroughly anti-biblical and secular concept has been snuck into the debate under the radar. If left unchallenged this concept will render the debate unwinnable for those who love God’s Word and the gospel and who long to see people liberated from homosexuality.

They’ve been listening to a society that tells them they are sick and there is no cure for their disease. … That is telling them, in effect…
