Today on the podcast, Dr. Jones and the crew discuss the upcoming conference in October 7-9, 2016, “The Two Loves: A Biblical Responses to ‘Gay Christianity’,” featuring in particular two leading experts in the field, Dr. Michael Brown and Dr. Rosaria Butterfield. We hope to show that the stakes for the church go far beyond the rightful concern for the practical issues of living in a paganized culture, for the preservation of free speech rights, and for the pastoral care of individual suffering homosexuals who deserve Christian love. We must go deeper, to identify the prior ideological ways of thinking, either the pagan worship of nature or the Twoist beauty of God’s good creation. These notions go to the very definition of existence which is what Scripture brings to the world. Without seeking to make homosexuals feel guilty, we must show the implications of our Christian message for purity, holiness and the radical transformation made possible by the Twoist Gospel. We intend to show that those powerful, positive elements will be lost if pagan-inspired “Gay Christianity” becomes a defining element of Christian practice.
