Recommended Resources for Participants of Advance Seminar 1 on January 23, 2016
By Marc Bayne, one of the two presenters
This is a short list of articles and documents for further reading and consideration on the subject of gay marriage, in connection with the January 23, 2016 seminar on this subject.
This seminar examined the arguments Christians and the Church have relied on in the "gay debate" within our culture. We presented some historical insights into the development of marriage customs from a variety of societies, with a focus on the West and America. Participants discussed and processed the content to identify the apologetics, and the moral/cultural considerations. In our discussion we also considered several Scripture texts to determine and show the Biblical position on homosexual behaviors and/or lifestyles, and how churches and individual Christians should respond accordingly. This topic is also of interest to Muslims because Islam experiences similar cultural currents in the West.
