  • Nashville Statement Is Biblical But Lacks Pastoral Wisdom, Further Alienates LGBT Persons

    The response to the Nashville Statement continues with some scholars now saying it damages the church's already negative reputation with homosexuals, and lacks pastoral wisdom even though they agree with the document theologically.Writing on his website Sunday, New York Times bestselling author Preston Sprinkle, who is currently a full-time speaker, noted that although he stood with the authors and signers of the Nashville Statement — a document published last week by the Council of Biblical Manhood and Womanhood and the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission that promotes the long-held Christian view of marriage and sexual ethics — it falls short on important...

    Speaker and author Rosaria Butterfield, a former lesbian, explained why she signed the Nashville Statement, which was released by a broad coalition of Christian leaders, including J. I. Packer and Francis Chan, articulating God's design for human identity as male and female. "I stand with biblical orthodoxy, which is inseparable from God's creation mandate and definition of gendered personhood found in Genesis 1:27," Butterfield wrote in an article for the website of The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, as a reason for signing the statement. "I signed the Nashville Statement because my conscience compels me so, because the promises...

    For some years I have been convinced of the need for a Church-wide theological statement on sexuality. In fact, I actually wrote one that never saw the light of day. I was glad, therefore, to be invited to a day-long analysis of the proposed Nashville Statement, which appeared in public a few days later. Though some of us urged the inclusion of biblical references, this statement faithfully reflects the Scriptural teaching on human sexuality. This basic statement of biblical truth is crucial in our day of biblical ignorance. Since many evangelicals now use egalitarianism (no difference between males and females)...

    The Nashville Statement is being treated as a nuclear bomb set by the Evangelical Community. In the meantime, the crazy little North Korean who has an Oedipus Complex has apparently successfully tested an actual fusion bomb, many times the strength of his previous tests. And Louis Farrakhan has allegedly gone nuclear with a so-called "profession of faith" in Jesus Christ. But the times are full of deception, and the wiles of the Devil are executing themselves at a furious pace in an attempt to deceive the masses. And he is succeeding. Scripture warns us that we must hold fast to...

    Evangelicals draw critics with 'Nashville Statement' on sexuality By Lukas MikelionisPublished August 30, 2017A group of evangelical leaders who released “the Nashville Statement” on Tuesday -- reiterating Christian viewpoints toward same-sex marriage and transgender rights -- have come under fire from Nashville's mayor and critics on social media.The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (CBMW), consisting of a number of evangelical Christian leaders, published a manifesto aimed at addressing issues of sexuality. It was endorsed by scholars, pastors and leaders at a Nashville conference Friday.“The spirit of our age does not delight in God’s good design of male and female....

    Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on a statement issued by evangelical leaders August 29: The Catholic League has a long history of mutual cooperation with evangelical Christians on a host of cultural issues. In that spirit, we condemn the unfair attacks against the statement on marriage, family and sexuality that was signed by more than 150 evangelical leaders following their conference in Nashville last week. “Hateful,” “homophobic,” “anti-LGBT” are among the hysterical condemnations of the statement flying around print, broadcast and social media. But the statement is none of those things. While restating long-held Christian teaching that marriage is...
  • 150 Evangelical Leaders Affirm: ‘It Is Sinful to Approve of Homosexual Immorality’

    The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (CBMW) released The Nashville Statement, signed by evangelicals and pastors throughout the country. The statement affirms that marriage is between one man and one woman and that the approval of same-sex relationships is sinful. The message comes at a time when some in the evangelical community have revised their views on human sexuality. “Our true identity, as male and female persons, is given by God. It is not only foolish, but hopeless, to try to make ourselves what God did not create us to be,” the statement reads. Article 10 of the statement...
