BEST  DEBATES  ON  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.

Homosexuality & the Bible:

 

Can You Be Gay & Christian?
(1:51:55) 
 

Dr. Michael Brown and

Can A Person Be A Christian Homosexual?
(2:32:57) 

 

Dr. James White is a prolific author, the founder of Alpha and Omega Ministries , host of the webcast The Dividing Line , and a well acclaimed apologist who has debated some of the top names in various fields of study. 
Justin Lee is the founder and Executive Director of The Gay Christian Network , a nonprofit, interdenominational organization working to increase dialogue between gays and Christians and to support people on both sides wrestling with related issues. He is also the author of Torn: Rescuing the Gospel from the Gay-vs.-Christian Debate , and the Director of the documentary Through My Eyes. This is not truly a debate. Rather, it is a civil and compassionate dialogue regarding the nature of the gospel and the boundaries between emotion and truth. This dialogue provides useful insight into a growing minority within the homosexual community--those who profess a faith in Jesus Christ, who are not necessarily practicing homosexuals, but who self-identify as gay.

 

 

Is Homosexuality Compatible with Christianity?
(3:06:49) 

 

Dr. James White is a prolific author, the founder of Alpha and Omega Ministries , host of the webcast The Dividing Line , and a well acclaimed apologist who has debated some of the top names in various fields of study.
Dr. John Shelby Spong was Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Newark for 24 years, and is the most published member of the House of Bishops of the Episcopalian Church of the United States . Although this debate was intended to address the question of whether homosexuality is compatible with authentic Christianity, it soon became apparent that the two guests do not agree as to what constitutes authentic Christianity. They disagree regarding the nature and authority of Scripture, the nature of God, and the essence of the gospel. Dr. Spong describes himself as a Christian mystic , and Dr. White adheres to the Nicene Creed . This debate is an excellent example of the futility of attempting to reason with someone who is in fundamental disagreement regarding the standard for determining truth.
