I don't know whether fairly regular visitor " franklin ", was trying to bait me in his comment...trying to get me to bite so he could set the hook. But anyways, I swallowed, now he'll have to play me a reel me in.
A few weeks ago on " Resonate ", we had some great conversation around Homosexuality, same sex relationships. Yes, it was heated at times, but all maintained their composure, we listened to each other...it became apparent, it is extremely difficult to draw hard lines in the sand around this topic...it leaks outside the container of our theologies.
Most of our conversation, came out of this post Bill Millar had written a while back. Bill and I seem to be standing in the same corner of the playing field this topic...here's how Bill starts of his post...
Several months ago when there was a bit of a stir related to a post of mine on 'Jesus and the family', I ended up in a few email conversations with folk who were interested in exploring the connection between the Bible, faith, sexual orientation and familly. Many others who have done a much deeper analysis than this – but here’s my take, for what it's worth.
There’s a lot of wrong assumptions around. One is that the Bible has a lot to say about homosexuality – it doesn’t. The second is that it clearly indicates homosexual behaviour is sinful. It doesn’t. But let’s take a look at it.
Folks who believe homosexuality is inherently sinful quote both OT and NT support for their view.
