A couple interesting links:
– A gay-friendly pastor, Andrew Marin, promised to build bridges between evangelicals and the LGBT community. Many groups put their trust in his message. Turns out that at the same time, he was leading training sessions for anti-gay groups and saying on Christian radio that homosexuality was a sin. There’s a conflict of interest if ever there was one…
– A new Bible just cuts out all those confusing, controversial passages. According to this article,
…those troublesome verses about justice for the poor, responsibility for the rich to address their neighbors’ needs, and all that talk about money, are gone. Not just edited out, cut out.
A report from Assist News Service said the Western Bible Foundation published the book to meet the “growing wish of many churches to be market-oriented and more attractive.”
