REVIEW: The Plausibility Problem: The Church and Same-Sex Attraction

plausibilityproblembook

My post yesterday generated quite a bit of interest. The comments section over there is quite interesting, and so far it has been very civil, which is all too rare when this subject is discussed. It seems to me, however, that some people felt I had not gone far enough, some people felt I had gone too far, and some people were confused about just how far I had gone!To summarize what I am trying to say on the subject, I really believe that the Church has a serious problem with how it has t … [Read more...]

Why Christians should support International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia

couples-306851_640

Today is commemorated around the world as the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia.  In this article I want to persuade you that Christians should support such a day, and speak out against violence against gay people, against discrimination, and against rejection. We should instead offer an olive branch of love to these human beings as made in the image of God, and people for whom Jesus died.I was speaking to a friend recently who told me that when he comes out as a … [Read more...]

Charles Spurgeon on Tithing

moneypile

Lined up today toe to toe are two camps of people when it comes to giving. In the one corner are those who legalistically tithe, do so out of fear, and believe everyone must tithe because God demands it. In the other corner are those who say, "We are not under the law of tithing so we don't need to do it." Often these people either don't give to God's house at all, or give very small amounts.Spurgeon, as so often seems to sit right in the middle and challenges both groups. Read the whole … [Read more...]
