I started a discussion at the reliable sources noticeboard if anyone wants to take part. Is my sister a hipster? How is this encyclopedic in any way? Hell, the first paragraph contains more Lorentzen quotes than it does original text.
I am deeply grateful to the staff of Baptist News Global for their cooperation in allowing these essays to be published in book form, and so quickly.
For years, everyone has been waiting for someone else to take on the challenge. I have heard from scores of people around the nation and the world who have thanked me for making this attempt. Most touching have been the many messages from LGBT Christians, their friends, their parents and their ministers, thanking me for standing with them and their loved ones, and for providing ways into this issue that they find helpful.
I have also heard, of course, from a handful of Christians who have most definitely not thanked me. I am confident that Baptist News Global will be happy to give you a chance to articulate an alternative perspective.
In this brief concluding column, I want to reflect on what I have learned in writing this series. Then I will take two weeks off for travel and speaking, and resume my column every other Monday, talking about whatever comes to mind. And soon I will be too busy making a fuss over our first grandchild to want to talk about anything other than that.
Preparing this series, I have learned that: Conversation about the LGBT issue is stymied by those who dismiss the significance of these texts as well as those who think there is nothing new to learn about them.
This involves Hebrew and Greek work, consulting a range of biblical commentaries, reading in the most important works focusing on sexuality in the ancient world, and doing your own prayerful reflection.
If you must start with one book, go with his New Testament on Sexuality, which begins by summarizing key findings of his own previous works. And then, of course eall moral discernment requires the mysterious and unverifiable guidance of the Holy Spirit. If they have worked out their exegesis on the six big passages, they have their answer to what the Church should do today.
They do not attend seriously to suffering human beings. They do not acknowledge a pastoral task other than to report exegetical results. Often they scorn those who attempt to integrate real human suffering, and pastoral concern, into their response to the LGBT issue.
They call it emotionalizing the issue. I think paying attention to neighbors bleeding by the side of the road is exactly what the love Jesus commanded looks like Lk. Further, I have learned that: I am hopeful that more and more churches will move ahead with this discussion, properly resourced.
Clearly there is no unanimity among readers or churches, but a community able to deal respectfully and lovingly with lack of unanimity is not a bad place to start. Some have reacted with outrage. Clearly this particular issue evokes emotions far exceeding that of other issues in our context at this moment.Genxegesis: Essays on Alternative YouthCulture Summary Although most people think ""Generation X"" is a coined label for the post-Baby Boom generation, since the early s the phrase has signified a seemingly identity-less group of young people trying to define .
