The Bible and Homosexuality: How the scriptures changed my mind

%PM %833 %Africa/Abidjan, %2013 %Friday:%Jun %p

Following on from a discussion last year about the so called “clobber passages” in the Bible, we thought it would be great time to revisit this subject and have a listen to Justin Lee – founder of the Gay Christian Network.

Often what we have heard and believed about what the Bible says to us about being Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex or Queer has impacted on how we feel about ourselves. And we are left with so many unanswered questions that go to the core of who we are. So many of us have struggled to reconcile our sexuality or sexual identity with the Bible, and felt really miserable and confused. And quite a few of us, spend literally years of our lives searching and reading.

It can be a really tough journey to finding the freedom to be ourselves.

We wanted to show this documentary and have a  discussion that we hope will provide some food for thought when looking at these passages in the Bible, and ultimately some insight that will help each of us.

Look forward to seeing you there.
