BEST  MEDIA  OPPOSING  HOMOSEXUALITY

 

Note:

Hebrews 5:14 teaches that mature Christians should be capable of discerning between good and evil, between true doctrine and the
doctrine of devils. The teachings included below are intended to provide the diligent truth-seeker with a thorough understanding of this topic. We at Inquisitive Christianity do not agree with much of the content included in these teachings. Nevertheless, we believe that these teachings offer valuable information for those who seek the truth and are spiritually mature enough to exercise discernment. We also think it is important to understand what those who disagree with us believe in order to fairly represent their position and also to better defend our own.

Introduction to Homosexuality

 

Faith-Based Investigation: Homosexuality
(1:34:10) 

 

This documentary was produced by Roman Catholics . Although we at Inquisitive Christianity disagree with several of the Roman Catholic doctrines--particularly the Catholic understanding of the gospel--this documentary does not focus on these doctrines.  Instead, this video serves as a valuable overview of the homosexual issue, its political history, and the science behind the arguments. The thesis statement of this documentary is, "Persons with same sex attractions deserve our respect and compassion.  But the militant gay movement’s message that 'gay' is good is completely false.  This lie is confusing society and hurting the individuals themselves."  Click here to access the documents used and referenced in this documentary.

 

  

The Cross & Christian Sexuality

 

Dr. David Platt is President of the International Mission Board , founder of Radical , an author, and the founder of Radical with David Platt on Moody Radio . In these two sermons, Dr. Platt addresses all sexual immorality and indulgence. As such, homosexuality is addressed, but only alongside such topics as adultery, pornography, masterbation, pre-marital sex, etc. Therefore, these sermons are not so much an introduction to homosexuality as they are an introduction to how God views sexual ethics. However, such understanding is foundational for any serious study of the particular issue of homosexuality. In this sense, these sermons are introductory.

 This is a "must-see" video for people on all sides of the issue. Pastor of Grace Chapel ,

Steve Berger, and Director and founder of Mastering Life Ministries ,
Dr. David Kyle Foster, candidly speak into the issue of homosexuality. As a former homosexual and male prostitute, Dr. David Kyle Foster is intimately familiar with the subject and speaks into some of the deep-rooted influences which can lead to a homosexual orientation, and he also speaks into some of the ways that this orientation can be changed. Pastor Steve Berger is deeply moved by the struggle, and sometimes past abuse, of those battling homosexual temptations. He challenges Christians to re-orient their thinking and to open their hearts to homosexuals while also maintaining a strong Biblical view of the issue. In this conversation, the transforming and healing power of the gospel is highlighted, and truth is undiluted. However, this truth is continually undergirded with a deep and obvious compassion and love for the homosexual and his struggle, making this an ideal video to watch with loved ones who are battling this temptation.

The Gospel & Homosexuality
(73:07)

 

Dr. David Platt is President of the International Mission Board , founder of Radical , an author, and the founder of Radical with David Platt on Moody Radio . In this powerful sermon which does address many popular
challenges by homosexuals, Dr. Platt pulls no punches. He speaks into all forms of sexual immorality, whether homosexual or heterosexual, and he challenges Christians to completely avoid selective moral outrage. In this sermon, Dr. Platt uses Romans 1 to teach that sin disorders our worship, our beliefs, and our desires. Moreover, when we see sexual indulgence, it is not merely reason for the judgment of God; it is evidence of the judgment of God. When we see sexual indulgence, it is a picture of God giving us over to ourselves, and this should cause every Christian to fall on his face and say, "God we want you to be restored to your rightful place in our lives, our culture, and our church!"

 

 

God's Standard for Sexuality
(50:24) 

 

Dr. Robby Gallaty, who serves as pastor of Brainerd Baptist Church , preached a powerful message on homosexuality as part of his True North sermon series. He vocalizes what many are reluctant to say regarding the pederastic history of homosexual practice. He argues that God never minimizes sexual activity but rather magnifies sexuality activity in the right context. He links what is likely the first recorded homosexual act in Scripture with the lifestyle and destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. He also argues that Romans 1 teaches that God's punishment for those involved in homosexuality is that God allows them to remain in their self-destructive lifestyle. Most importantly, he addresses how a Christian struggling with homosexual temptations ought to respond.

Dr. John MacArthur's church, Dr. Voddie Baucham argues that the homosexual issue is critically important because it is truly a question of origins; it is an educational issue; and the arguments being made in favor of homosexuality are illogical and unfounded arguments which can, should, and must be refuted.

Homosexuality and the Levitical Laws   (12:03)

How Should Christians Deal with Homosexuals in Business Situations?   (7:14)

 

Douglas Wilson was invited to speak into the issue of homosexuality at Indiana University. Even before anything was said regarding the subject of homosexuality, the primarly pro-gay audience was incredibly hostile--shouting expletives, mocking the speaker, chanting while holding up banners, etc. In fact, it was necessary to forcibly remove many for their disturbance. Additionally, most of the questions which were asked were highly accusatory and mean-spirited. Despite this, Douglas Wilson remained past the allotted time to patiently and respectfully answer 40 questions. Although his lecture and even the answers that he provided during the question and answer session were not particularly strong, this video portrays the double standard often encountered when speaking into the issue of homosexuality. Particularly, this video displays the intolerance of the "tolerant," the hatred of those preaching "love," and the disrespect of and judgmentalism of those asking not to be judged. What Douglas Wilson endured as an invited guest on a university campus is unbelievable.
