Group Description

This is a group for those who question the effectiveness and safety of "ex-gay" ministries and therapies. We concur with the growing number of Bible scholars and theologians who believe Christian hostility towards homosexuality and homosexual relationships rests entirely on an interpretation of the Bible that in many respects is open to question. We also believe there is no credible evidence (biblical, scientific or otherwise) to suggest that sexual orientation is chosen.

Throughout church history most Christians who have used the Bible to condemn other Christians who were acting in good faith. History has revealed, however, that what many were defending was their presumption of what the Bible teaches, not the truth of Scripture. As best-selling author and former professor of biblical exegesis F.F. Bruce put it: “It is not enough to say: ‘The Bible says’... without at the same time considering, to whom the Bible says it, and in what circumstances.”

Contributions are welcome from all -- especially those seeking to reconcile a Christ-centered faith with their sexuality. Discussion is encouraged, but please respect others' views and keep comments brief. Please be aware that messages can be viewed publically. Anonymous members are encouraged to use an alternate Yahoo ID and omit specific names in their posts.
