N.T. Wright on Debate about Homosexuality

Posted by in Facebook's Pentecostal Theology Group View the Original Post

Bishop Tom Wright wants the Church to have a reasonable debate on the topic of homosexuality in place of the current “shouting match.” While acknowledging the complexity of the issue, he identifies the central question to be addressed, “What things about a person’s humanity need to be celebrated and what need to be repented of–and how do you tell the difference?” A thoughtful discussion on this question must then be framed by an understanding of God’s created order as revealed in Genesis 1 and 2, along with the historical knowledge that the Apostle Paul and his contemporaries in the ancient world would have been as aware of the reality of homosexuality as we are today.

    Link Hudson Angel Ruiz I find the last 3 videos by NT whom I respect greatly as a theologian and would listen to him and Perry any given Sunday, to be most puzzling: we have here the gay one, then the end-times video before it and then the first one posted on satan and evil I would not call them vogue because thats not who he is but perhaps unclear and puzzling

    He regarded homosexuality as wrong in this article, which is a long and interesting read.
