The Bible and Homosexuality
I am a pastor. Why do you need to know that? Because it will help you understand why I chose to speak on the topic of The Bible and Homosexuality. You need to know that there are people in our church that ask me about this topic, and I wanted to try and serve them well as one of their pastors. That is it. I simply wanted to try and take people to the Bible and see what it has to say about this challenging topic. I also wanted to try and engage with those who would also profess a belief in the Bible, but disagree with my position. I know full well that I did not answer every question and objection. I know that I am a fallible man trying to communicate God’s infallible truth. My hope in posting the video of my teaching is that it might serve you well as you too wrestle with this challenging topic.
Additionally I wanted to list out some resources that were helpful to me in my preparation. As mentioned early on in the video, I leaned much on Kevin DeYoung’s book What Does the Bible Really Teach about Homosexuality? I found this to be one of the most concise, helpful books on the subject. In addition to that book, I have listed below some of the other resources that were helpful to me…
Is God anti-gay by Sam Allberry
One or Two: Seeing a World of Difference by Peter R. Jones
