What Does The Bible Actually Say? Have you been confused by “biblically based” arguments justifying homosexuality? There are many of them. They range from assertions that Jesus was not concerned about maintaining the heterosexual character of sexual relations to citing the inclusive nature of the New Testament.

This elective will critique these and other arguments used to discount Scripture’s witness to a male-female prerequisite for sexual relations.
