Homosexuality DVD

NEW! HOMOSEXUALITY AND THE BIBLE: Answering Objections to the Biblical View (DVD)
by Charlie Campbell

Homosexuality is a topic that must be addressed in the church today because the culture is talking about it and it's important for God's people to be equipped to join the conversation and reason with people regarding what the Bible says. In this DVD Charlie Campbell responds to the most challenging and popular objections, criticisms, and questions people raise about the Bible's teaching on this topic. Some of those objections include:

    • “Homosexuals were born that way. How can say it's wrong to fulfill desires they were born with?"
    • “Jesus never said a word about homosexual activity. If it was sinful or important to Him, He surely would have addressed it.”
    • “What two consenting adults do is their business. They’re not hurting anybody. And Jesus said not to judge!” 
    • “You Christians ignore Old Testament laws forbidding the eating of shellfish and pork. Why do you inconsistently cling to its stance on homosexuality?” 
    • “When Paul wrote about homosexuality, he was referring to pagan idol worshippers, and rapists, not two persons committed to one another in a loving monogamous relationship.”
    • "Why are Christians opposed to same-sex marriage?"
    • "Why won't most Christians attend a gay wedding ceremony?"

Gay-Gospel-Joe-Dallas

THE GAY GOSPEL: How Pro-Gay Advocates Misread the Bible
(Book) by Joe Dallas


Is it possible to be both gay and Christian? Joe Dallas thought so. For six years he was both actively gay and a church-attending Christian. But deep within, he was bothered by one huge question: "Am I basing my decision to embrace the 'gay and Christian' identity on the belief that this is God's will for my life…or on the hope that this is what God might allow?" That question caused Joe to take another look: not just at what he wanted out of life-but at what God wanted for him. From this unique personal perspective on the pro-gay Christian movement, Joe provides a:

    • thorough background in the development and nature of the "gay gospel"
    • concise, detailed understanding of pro-gay theology's beliefs
    • clear, biblical response to each belief
    • practical, compassionate plan to bring truth to people who believe "gay" and "Christian" are compatible

In The Gay Gospel? you'll find the crucial balance between conviction and compassion and a practical guide to communicating with those who have embraced the pro-gay theology. Paperback, 265 pages. Click here to purchase.
