Are They Really Big Issues?

Richard Hays, Christian ethicist and scholar writes something interesting about the issues homosexuality and abortion:

The most passionate and rancorous moral debates in the church at present seem to focus on the issues of homosexuality and abortion—matters treated peripherally or not at all in the NT. Our feverish preoccupation with such questions is a sign oí pathology in the body of Christ. 

Richard Hays, in his article “New Testament Ethics”

Do you think that homosexuality and abortion serve as peripheral issues in the church? Or do they need to be front and center?
