The gay dating bible

Rated 4.70/5 based on 777 customer reviews

Like Vines, I was looking for biblical justification and wanted to prove that the Bible blesses gay relationships.

As I read Boswell's book, the Bible was open next to it, and his assertions did not line up with Scripture.

Like Vines, I also came out as a gay man while I was a student.

I was a graduate student pursuing a doctorate in dentistry.

So Vines sought to arm himself with biblical scholarship on the affirmation of same-sex relationships and strove to convince his family and church that they were wrong—that homosexuality is not a sin.

Recognizing that celibacy is a gift, Vines contends that this gift should only be accepted voluntarily.

Citing 1 Timothy 4:3, Vines even argues that those who forbid gay marriage are false teachers who promote hostility toward God's creation.

As a racial minority, biblical texts on sojourners and aliens mean more to me than to someone who is not a racial minority.

However, experiences can also hinder the interpretation of Scripture.
