2.5: Investigating LGBTQ+: Is there only one biblical perspective?
Show Notes

Let's dive into part 5 of "Outgrowing the Good Christian Girl!" Today we're talking with Matthew Vines, author of "God and the Gay Christian: The Biblical Case for Same Sex Relationships." Here are the questions we'll be talking about:

1. What did you used to believe it meant to honor God with your sexuality? (@4:05)
2. What was the fruit of seeing sexuality that way? (@13:10)
3. Would you tell us about how you approach the Bible? (@16:05)
4. Would you tell us why you wrote "God and the Gay Christian"? (@20:13)
5. What would the words for "homosexuality" have meant to Bible readers in the early church? What did "homosexual behavior" look like at that time in history? (@26:43)
6. Let's talk about the Bible passage that I used to think ended any conversation on homosexuality: Romans 1. Would you give us just an overview of what your Bible study has revealed about this passage? What about that word "unnatural"? (@34:15)
7. What is Scripture's trajectory with gender roles? (@37:45)
8. Let's go back to Romans 1! What was same sex behavior commonly associated with at that time? (@40:56)
9. So what about the option of celibacy? (@45:07)
10. What about other sexual orientations and gender identities? (@47:23)
11. Would you tell us more about The Reformation Project and the resources you offer for those who want to learn more? (@49:56)

Come back next week as James and I debrief this episode and talk about our personal thoughts on this topic!
