  • Keep the Faith: On Family & Sexuality, Chapter 3: Homosexuality – Kevin Swanson

    Source: Generations - Posted: one year ago

    Contemporary Christian music stars are endorsing homosexual marriage. Presbyterians, Anglicans, Lutherans, and Mennonites are ordaining homosexual clergy. After the damage has been done by the false worldviews of humanism, existentialism, feminism, and sexual and gender autonomy, will there be any Christian churches and Christian families still standing? Will anybody stand with the Apostles, the Apostolic Fathers, the Church Fathers, the Reformers, and the church of the ages on the most critical issues of the day? Who will keep the faith, and who will keep the commandments of God? Kevin Swanson takes a look at these questions in chapter 3 of his book, Keep the Faith: On Family & Sexuality.

    "O’Reilly first came to prominence when I was a teenager, and has ruled cable news almost since that time. He was one of the most successful anchors in the history of broadcasting, and wielded enormous influence. Now he will slink off the scene in disgrace. There will be no retirement party. No sentimental retrospectives on his career. No farewell special with a who’s who of political leaders. . . . As Christians observe the pitiful end to all this success we can learn several crucial lessons."

  • Why the Transgender Debate Is About Redefining Reality – Joe Carter

    The sexual revolution has so subverted public opinion and Christian-influenced morality that teachings about sex that were previously considered immoral or even unthinkable eventually found their way into the classroom as school policy. But a quicker and more effective route to societal change is to simply reverse the process: force an issue to become school policy and eventually opposition to it will become unthinkable.

  • Foundation for Moral Law: Texas Should Disregard Obergefell

    Source: Foundation for Moral Law - Posted: 2 years ago

    The Foundation for Moral Law (“Foundation”) has filed an amicus brief with the Texas Supreme Court in Case No. 15-0688, Pidgeon v. Turner. The question before the court is whether Obergefell should be applied narrowly—limited to the issuing of marriage licenses—or broadly, affecting spousal benefits and other incidents of marriage. The Foundation’s amicus brief provides a unique perspective. Arguing that Obergefell is a wholly illegitimate decision with no basis in the Constitution, a pure act of judicial will that usurps the legislative power, the Foundation encourages the justices of the Texas Supreme Court, in fulfillment of their oath to the Constitution, to give it no effect.

He says, "Sexuality is God's idea, and we should learn from God what it is. It's a man and a woman created in beautifully complementary ways so that they form one flesh. And to try to do it another way is a distortion. It's a corruption. It's a dysfunction of the way God made it."

  • How Can Our Church Reach out to the Gay Community? – Kevin DeYoung

    Kevin DeYoung addresses the often-asked question, "How can our church reach out to the gay community?" He says, "I’m never sure how to answer the question. For starters, I’m no authority on 'reaching the gay community.' Our church has always had men and women in it who struggle with same sex attraction. We have some good stories to tell and some disappointing stories, but experts we certainly are not. The other reason I’m hesitant to answer the question is that it’s one of those questions that can only be answered with more questions."

    "Modern gender ideology promises happiness if we’ll just listen to our desires and cast aside any physical hindrance to them.

As the church, we can offer the world a true and lasting promise, and a name even better than sons and daughters."
