Homosexuality: Should Christians Agree to Disagree? With Alan Shlemon—The Alisa Childers Podcast #68
Alan Shlemon from Stand to Reason joins me on today's podcast to discuss whether or not it's biblical for Christians to "agree to disagree" about issues relating to LGBTQ. We also discuss the Reformation Project, an organization which exists to change the minds of Christians on this issue. We talk about a couple of their talking points, including whether or not modern English translations have translated relevant Bible verses correctly. Specifically, we talk about the Greek words Paul used to identify homosexuality, and address the claim that the English word "homosexuality" didn't even exist until modern times.

Hi! I have a question. I listened to this podcast and thought it was incredibly informing and full of grace. I’m very much looking forward to the next one in the series. I’ve done a decent amount of research in the area and the smoking gun for me is the word Pedestary and what it actually was in Ancient Greek culture. Before we had the word Homosexuality in English bible translators used the word Pedestary. Will you discuss this at all in the next podcast?

There actually is a Greek word for pederasty that Paul doesn't use. He could have, if that's what he intended. Rather he coins a term from two Greek words in the Septuagint from Leviticus 20:13. Leviticus uses the terms man and bed and Paul combines the two into manbed.

This topic not only has eternal ramifications for the LBGT but the Follower of Christ who does not allow the Holy Spirit to address it through them. God is more than able to address all issues through his word and his Spirit. Walk in the Spirit means obedience to the word. No middle ground.
