August 06 2018 By dvirtue Torn Between Two Cultures? Revoice, LGBT Identity, and Biblical Christianity

Just a few days ago, a conference was held in St. Louis. The "Revoice" conference was advertised as "supporting, encouraging, and empowering gay, lesbian, same-sex attracted, and other LGBT Christians so they can flourish while observing the historic, Christian doctrine of marriage and sexuality."

The name was no accident, as the organizers called for a "revoicing" of the evangelical message on issues of sexuality, sexual identity, and beyond.

That sounds like apostasy to me: deliberately moving away from Christian truth once upheld and affirmed. Let me offer two clear examples of this rainbow apostasy which have just occurred. The first is from the UK. Many Christians know and love John and Charles Wesley, and the ministry they had three hundred years ago.

July 24 2018 By dvirtue Five Spiritual Dangers in the Human Rights Campaign's 'Guide' for LGBT Evangelicals

HRC's push to encourage churches to accept people who suffer with same-sex attraction and gender dysphoria is laudable, and Christians have been too dismissive of these people in the past. But Christians must be careful to preserve the teachings of Jesus while extending His grace to those who struggle with these issues. God calls Christians to love LGBT people, but not to affirm LGBT identity, and HRC's "guidance" undermines that crucial mission.

July 02 2018 By dvirtue NIGERIA: An interview with Ben Kwashi, Anglican Archbishop of Jos

AB Kwashi seemed calm and joyful when he greeted us today. One would never know that just the night before last, his own compound was attacked, all his cows stolen by Fulani raiders, and his neighbor murdered while trying to protect his friend (the Archbishop). The terrorists seemed to be sending the Archbishop a warning. When we came to his door, Kwashi was saying goodbye to the leader of another Nigerian network of churches. They joked about their days in seminary together.

June 30 2018 By dvirtue CANADA: Edmonton Bishop Jane Alexander denies tapping into the Zeitgeist while doing it

Bishop Jane Alexander's opening gambit, declaring LGBT people are "not an abomination" is a loaded statement along the lines of "when did you stop beating your wife?" It presupposes that there are conservatives in the church who think they are an abomination: no conservative I know thinks that.
