As I’ve jumped fully into the online discussion of inclusion and affirmation for our LGBTQ sisters, brothers and neighbors, I thought a page that listed my posts on various aspects and issues might be handy. I’ll try to keep the page updated as I add new posts. If you’re new to my blog or my posts on LGBTQ inclusion and affirmation, then please understand that I believe LGBTQ affirming exegesis, theology and ecclesiology are good exegesis, theology and ecclesiology.

I have known you for 30+ years (Your vehicle when I first met you was the largest picture in the yearbook “The indestructible, The Enterprise”) . On some of this you are either taking things out of context or just wrong in the translation. the actual Hebrew (the language from which we have gotten Leviticus and the warnings of אל תשכב עם גבר כמו שהיית עושה אישה. translate that and you get “Do not sleep with a man as you would a woman” you miss the last part. “both of them have committed an abomination”. This does not involve the act of pederasty or any other act other than the homosexual act. The context is found in 1 Corinthians 6:16-17 “16 Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.” 17 But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.” I would contest that if you lie with a man as one would a woman you have become united in the flesh with another man with as covered in Revelation 21:27 “and nothing unclean, and no one who practices abomination and lying, shall ever come into it, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.” As covered the abomination here is covered in Leviticus as the abomination of homosexuality.On this there is little doubt.

Please… knowing what car I drove in high school hardly qualifies you as a judge and jury of my intellectual or theological abilities. If prostitution is the context, then pederasty and other sexual abuses (separate from gender) are perfectly in context, thank you very much.
Be blessed, and may you know the blessing of queer friends, queer sisters and brothers in Christ. Until that blessing, I posit that you are incomplete. ~Todd
