“Homosexuality:

A Series of Essays
Exploring the Question
of Homosexuality

Essay
Stephen M. Vantassel,
‘Introduction: Does the Protestant Bible
Support Homosexual Relationships?’

That provocative question is the subject of The Evangelical Review Theology and Politics first written debate. Though eschewed by many within and beyond academia, debates have a long and important history amongst people who take truth seriously. Why? Simple, debates have numerous benefits. First, debaters demonstrate intellectual courage by subjecting their ideas to public scrutiny by those familiar with the subject. Too often academics publish their papers certain that they will never be required to engage critics. I was once told by a colleague that academics frequently do not engage critics because to do so would be tantamount to giving their opponents credibility. The authors engaged in this debate have not taken that common but cowardly position…

‘Unjustified Exclusion:
A lack of Biblical evidence against homosexuality’

KEY WORDS

||  Prostitution ||  Spirit ||  Law ||

ABSTRACT
Homosexuality as understood in the 21st Century (a loving, consensual relationship between two monogamous adults in a committed relationship) has been unjustly persecuted by religious traditionalists. There is a lack of irrefutable Biblical evidence regarding this matter. A closer look at the so-called “clobber verses” reveals, apophatically, no condemnation of same sex sexual behaviour within the bible. Context matters when considering the meaning of a passage, as such there can be no plain reading of a text that is 2000-3000 years old, translated from an ancient language into modern contexts. This paper looks at the context, word choices, and the placement of words and phrases as an integral part of a whole. Thus, without any viable basis for condemnation of same sex sexual behavior, the issue for theologians becomes one of response to a behaviour we do not understand fully. Grace over condemnation, Spirit over legalism should be the response of people of faith.

Brian Huffling & Thomas J. Gentry,
‘A Biblical Case Against Homosexuality’

KEY WORDS
||  Homosexuality ||  Gay-Lesbian ||  Relationships ||
||  Biblical Authority ||  Revelation ||  Nature-Natural ||  Ethics-Morality ||

ABSTRACT
Homosexuality has become more and more accepted in western society. Churches have also become more accepting of this practice. Many Christians argue that the Bible allows homosexual behaviour. This article explores various passages regarding the question of whether the Bible actually does condone homosexual behaviour. The most pertinent passages of the Old and New Testaments are examined on the topic. Objections from scholarly homosexual advocates are presented along with responses to those objections. The conclusion of the article is that the Bible in fact does not condone homosexuality.
