In the city of Indianapolis there is a 30-day billboard campaign put on by the pro-homosexual Metropolitan Community Church in partnership with Faith in America. The billboards, posted all over the city, carry messages such as “Jesus affirmed a gay couple,” and include Bible verses that they claim support their points.
This week, I would like to explore the issue of homosexuality and the Bible. I will be looking at the biblical texts that this group and groups like it use to support their stance that homosexuality and Christianity are not in contradiction. I will also look at text that counter these points.
I seek to undergo this task in a serious but dignified manner. I am not afraid to offend people, because I know that regardless of the issue, Christianity is offensive to many. However, I do not set out to deliberately degrade and humiliate. I only seek to present the truth as the Word of God presents it, and in doing so to bring people to a knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Way, the Truth and the Life (John 14:6). I hope this discussion is insightful and edifying.
Please feel free to comment. I only ask, for those on either side of the issue, that you show as much dignity and respect as you would like to receive from others.
