SPOTLIGHT: Dr. Gagnon – “Making the Christian Case Against Homosexuality”

Written by David E. Smith

Making the Christian case against homosexuality has always been a great challenge in our engagement with the world, going all the way back to Genesis and the account of Sodom and Gomorrah. The biblical opposition to homosexual practice is especially relevant in light of the new ruling by Circuit Judge Britt Grant of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals regarding “reparative therapy,” whereby individuals with homosexual attractions willingly seek out pastoral or professional counseling to help them fight that specific sin. Keynote speaker, Dr. Robert Gagnon, addressed that topic and others at IFI’s 2020 Worldview Conference.

In his presentation, How to Make the Christian Case Against Homosexual Practice and Transgenderism, Dr. Gagnon explains why Christians must hold firmly to the truth, found first in Genesis and confirmed throughout Scripture, that God’s design of binary sexuality, marriage between one man and one woman, is foundational and inviolate. Dr. Gagnon also refutes the false belief that all sins are equal and warns of the danger in affirming homosexual unions and transgenderism out of a mistaken sense of “love.”

This presentation can also be viewed on YouTube. Please share Dr. Gagnon’s message with family and friends.

Dr. Gagnon is a professor of New Testament theology at Houston Baptist University and the author of The Bible and Homosexual Practice: Texts and Hermeneutics.
