The Culture Alternative

Recently a number of Christian leaders signed a document called the Nashville Statement. It’s a basic declaration of Christian orthodoxy on sexuality, sexual orientation, and sexual identity.

Its 14 articles can be boiled down to a simple statement:We believe the Bible is the word of God, and the word of God declares that sexual intimacy is reserved for the lifelong union of a man and a woman in marriage.

It acknowledges the reality of same-sex attraction as well as the reality of transgender self-conceptions, but denies that God sanctions same-sex sexual activity or a transgendered self-conception that is at odds with biological reality.

In other words, it’s basic Christianity.

Of course, it was immediately attacked by group after group.

Jesus doesn’t get into politics. Everything Jesus said supports the Nashville Statement. As a follower of Jesus, I get to decide who to believe. I decide to believe Jesus.
