I'm looking for a good module to download to study up on how to argue against accepting the LGBQT's into the church. I attend a United Methodist Church and there is a major contention about this which is causing the church as a whole to split.

You probably wont find a module on a site like this because most modules are made from dated, public domain works; and this topic wasn't an issue pre-1930's, As far as an authors you may find useful; pretty much anything Joe Dallas does on homosexuality, and Dr. James White has several 1-4 hour debates on the issue free to view on YouTube.

Thank you so much for your reply. It is indeed so very sad that some "churches" even consider this an issue of debate among their congregations. The Word of God warns us about wolves in sheep's clothing and this is a prime example. Those that are for it say they are doing it because we as Christians must accept everyone in love, but I say accepting immorality into the church has nothing to do with love. I could go on.....hey, maybe I should write a book!

I think that your comment is an over the top reaction. Here is something you need to consider: Anyone can be anti gay or anti anything else for that matter, That said, debate is a method, if you like, to reach across to those that are homosexuals to win them over to the Lord. And I'll leave that bit there as this is not the proper format to discuss this here. That actually belongs on the Theological Discussion part of this site, of which then you can rant, argue, or rave to your heart's content.

 

That said, quite a great deal of books and articles have been published regarding Homosexuality and etc in relation to the Scripture. But all of this these resources are copyright and etc. However there is nothing to stop you from purchasing, and getting permission to use them for the purpose of making them into e-Sword resources.

 

And, by the way, that could cost you a heap of dosh (money) when you have to pay for the royalties. So don't think all this comes free, because it doesn't. Kapish?!

 

Sorry that this comes across somewhat as harsh, but realities have to be faced.

 

Blessings,

Blessings,

I do believe that you jumped the gun on this one, I did not see any "anti-gay" tone in ChuckH's post. What I did see was a concern for the life of his church. When you look at the church of today what we find is one that is more concerned with being acceptable to the world than they are to Jesus.

 

While I agree we are to reach out in love to everyone that does not, can not, mean that we bring sin into the church. The only time that the church is effective is when we stand apart from the world and point out sin, we do not embrace it.
