God and the Gay Christian? A Response to Matthew Vines by SBTS Press
Today Matthew Vines will release a controversial new book called, God and the Gay Christian, that attempts to reverse the Church’s moral position on homosexuality. In the book, he looks at several key biblical passages and tries to explain that they address isolated acts of homosexual lust, rather than patterns of homosexual orientation that we know today. He intends to persuade the church that it is a misuse of these passages to condemn homosexuals and their same-sex relationships.
Vines’s arguments have been made before, but things are different today.
