Josh Barro: “Stamp Out” Those Who Disagree with LGBT Advocates

My friend Andrew Walker and I just wrote a piece for National Review entitled “‘Stamp Them Out’: On Josh Barro and the New Sexual Moralism.” Here’s what it’s about: Last night, New York Times reporter Josh Barro tweeted out a disturbing message: “Anti-LGBT attitudes are terrible for people in all sorts of communities. They linger and oppress, and we need to stamp [Read More...]

Everyone Needs a Conversion Story: On Sexual Orientation and Salvation

One of the hottest topics in the public square today is the issue of anthropological identity, or, more plainly, what it means to be human. See, for example, Kirsten Powers’s recent column for USA Today on the church’s apparent need to embrace the validity of gay Christianity. This issue is closely tied to cultural approbation [Read More...]

Tim Keller on Mars Hill Preaching, Homosexuality, and Transgender Identity

I recently had the privilege of interviewing Manhattan pastor Tim Keller for Christianity Today. The interview was about Keller’s new book Encounters with Jesus: Unexpected Answers to Life’s Biggest Questions (Dutton, Nov. 2013). It’s a book that would be marvelous to read whether for one’s own edification or for the purposes of discipleship or evangelism. If you’re [Read More...]

The New JBMW Is Hot Off the Presses

See this announcement from Denny Burk, the outstanding Editor of the Journal for Biblical Manhood & Womanhood. CBMW has produced JBMW for three decades now and continues to produce a rich body of gospel-fired content aimed at helping the church to think biblically and theologically about challenges and opportunities related to gender and sexuality.

Why You Should Trust the Apostle Paul Over Precocious Millennials

My brother-at-arms Andrew Walker and I just wrote a piece entitled, puckishly, “Why the Church Is Wrong” for First Thoughts of First Things. It’s on the revisionist hermeneutic and hubris of Matthew Vines, Rachel Held Evans, and their ilk. You may know that these are the same folks who dare to correct the apostle Paul, a man [Read More...]

Should Christians Use the Term “Gay Christian”?

In his new book God and the Gay Christian, Matthew Vines seeks to legitimate homosexual practice among evangelicals. I responded to this heretical teaching yesterday in my post about the new Southern Seminary eBook, God and the Gay Christian? I quoted a section from my chapter on the church’s historical teaching, a chapter that has now been posted [Read More...]

God and the Gay Christian–An Evangelical Response to Matthew Vines

Led by President R. Albert Mohler, Jr., faculty from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary just published an eBook titled God and the Gay Christian? in response to a new book by Matthew Vines entitled God and the Gay Christian (published by an offshoot of Multnomah/WaterBrook, a historically evangelical publisher). I was blessed by the work of faculty [Read More...]

Rosaria Butterfield Subject to Protests at University in Florida

Denny Burk has the details: With this kind of PR before the event, you can only imagine how the actual presentation went. The protesters came to the event and made their presence known. The campus newspaper reports: As Rosaria Butterfield began her lecture about her journey and “train wreck conversion” from a lesbian professor to a Christian, [Read More...]

Are Complementarians Really the Most Pro-Woman Folks Around?

Yes, I think so. I explain why this is so in the media below. Recently, I’ve had opportunity in my role as Executive Director of the Council on Biblical Manhood & Womanhood (CBMW) to do several interviews that have allowed me to speak to my gospel-driven, positive vision for the organization. If you’re wondering how [Read More...]

Homosexuality and Humanity

One of the most common ideas on offer in the cultural discussion of homosexuality is this: “humanity.” As in something like, “Senator Rob Portman now affirms same-sex marriage because he has seen the humanity of his son.” The implication of this statement, at least by some, is that considering homosexuality a sin per Romans 1 [Read More...]
