Biblical Sexuality

Sodom, We Have a Problem

Redefining Marriage is an ObamaNation Right Side News

Linda Harvey | Barbwire

Case in point: The leaders of the Episcopal Church USA, the Presbyterian Church USA and the United Church of Christ are all patting themselves on the back these days. Leaving behind sound biblical doctrine, they’re now celebrating “marriage equality.”

All three denominations ordain openly homosexual clergy and will now perform same-sex (so-called) marriages. “Aren’t we progressive?” is the smug attitude of these long-established mainliners, who may soon be joined by the ELCA (Lutherans) and the United Methodist Church in the official fiction of marrying two men or two women.

Men, Fornication is for Cowards

“Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body.” – 1 Corinthians 6:18

I had an interesting heart-to-heart with my dad the other day. We were discussing my son, his grandson, who was spending time with my folks in Colorado over the summer. At the risk of bragging a bit – my boy, an eighth grader who recently turned 14, is already 6-foot-1, very handsome and a competitive Olympic-style boxer. Evidently, on the previous day a “drop-dead gorgeous” high school girl had made a sexual advance at him, and while as a Christian young man, he had managed to graciously rebuff that advance, he shared with his grandfather that “it was tempting.”

Boy do I know it. Having been a teenage boy myself a few decades back I faced those same temptations on multiple occasions, and, regrettably, as I’ve shared before, both then and into my young adulthood, I succumbed to those temptations more often than not.

Why Liberals and Homosexual Activists Are Intolerant

Stephen McDowell

Secular humanism is the predominant religion of the mainstream media, academia, and the political left. It has become the established religion of government schools, and its tenets of relativism, positivism, and statism are widely taught. Toleration is one of its chief virtues. The degree of toleration has reached the absurd, where California now allows students to use male or female restrooms based upon their self-identification, not biology.

VA Christian Alliance: Churchgoers should 'Drop Out' of Boy Scouts

by Chris Thomas

The Virginia Christian Alliance is calling on churches to drop their affiliation with the Boy Scouts. The move comes less than 24 hours after the Boy Scouts announced they are lifting their ban on gay scout leaders.  

"I think it's the beginning of the end of the boy scouts," said Don Blake who is the president of the Virginia Christian Alliance. "Parents have to fear their children being molested."

Just a few years back, Richmond protestors rallied against allowing openly gay children into the scouts. A document made the rounds in the fan district that proclaimed "KEEP SCOUTING MORALLY STRAIGHT." The Christian Alliance is fed up now that openly gay scouts and leaders are allowed.

Sex Identity

Sex IdentityChristopher O. Tollefsen | The Public Discourse

As animals that reproduce sexually, humans in the paradigm case are either male or female, with the sexes specified by reproductive roles they can potentially fulfill. According to this account, it is impossible for someone to change his or her sex, and all attempts to do so involve mutilation. The first of a two-part series.

I reflect here on our identity as sexed beings. In tomorrow’s essay I consider what it means for us to be gendered beings. But to do so, it is important first to make some distinctions concerning sex, intersex, and trans-sex on the one hand, and gender and transgender on the other.

The vast majority of human beings are born as members of one of the two sexes, male and female. In the paradigm case, those individuals are genotypically and phenotypically easily identifiable as one or the other, and their sexual identity is clear. But for a smaller number of individuals, things are not so obvious; the possibilities include individuals with ambiguous genitalia, mismatched genotype and phenotype, and perhaps some form of hermaphroditism.
