What does the Bible really say? Addressing Revisionist Arguments on Sexuality and the Bible.
In 2019 a series of ten articles by various authors was published on the liberal Anglican website ViaMedia.News under the collective title ‘Does the Bible Really Say….?’ The purpose of this series was to challenge the belief that the Bible rules out acceptance of same-sex sexual relationships and same-sex marriage.
The essays in this book are response to these ViaMedia. News articles. They show that the arguments that these articles put forward are not sustainable in the light of what the Bible actually says. Underlying the current debate in the Church about human sexuality is the question asked of Eve by the snake ‘Did God really say?’ (Genesis 3:1). Through nature and Scripture God has said clearly that he has created human beings as male and female and has ordained marriage between one man and one woman as the sole legitimate setting for sexual intercourse. We know that this is what God has told us and yet in the face of pressure from our contemporary culture we are tempted to question whether this is what he really meant. It is of the utmost importance that this temptation is resisted. The purpose of this book is to encourage such resistance.
