Yesterday, the term and theological category “Same-Sex Attracted Christian” didn’t even exist. Now it’s everywhere — seemingly in every pulpit, at every conference, in every book, in every periodical, in every blog, on every podcast. The tsunami alarm has been slow to sound, but it’s now clear that Same-Sex Attracted Christian Apostasy is sweeping through Christ’s Church like a tsunami. Consider A.W. Pink’s Biblical definition of apostasy:
Evangelicalism’s Same-Sex Attracted Christian A-team
Today, Sam Allberry and Jackie Hill Perry are unarguably The Gospel Coalition (TGC), Together for the Gospel (T4G), and 9Marks’ same-sex attracted Christian A-team! They are the go-to same-sex attracted Christian specialists, teachers, preachers, counselors, and authors we are told we must hear, we must read, and we must get behind. They’re in the lead and we all need to follow. TGC released an article titled, “Christians, It’s Time to Go on the Offensive,” March 18th, 2019, explaining their constant quoting, promoting, showcasing, and deferring to Allberry and Perry’s same-sex attracted Christian instruction, counsel, and writings. Here’s an excerpt:
*Homophobic = an irrational and unbiblical fear of the scorn of a God-hating culture given over to the embrace, celebration, and defense of homosexual perversion.
This article is an open confession of what we’ve been seeing for some time. The leadership of TGC, T4G, and 9Marks are homophobic. When you fear being called a “homophobic bigot” by a homosexual crazed world to the point you’re willing to exchange God’s Biblical moral terms (abomination, vile passion, against nature, shameful, etc.) for the world’s amoral terms (same-sex attracted, gay, LBGBTQI, etc.) you are in fact homophobic. Homophobic men systematically exchange God’s sin condemning terms for the world’s noncondemning terms because they fear homosexuals and our perverse, God-hating, Romans 1:18-32 culture’s wrath — more than they fear God.
By their own confession, the homophobic men behind TGC believe Sam Allberry and Jackie Hill Perry to be the “most credible” evangelical voices to speak our message to the unbelieving “world where Christians are seen as homophobic bigots.” Having forgotten the fear of God, TGC’s homophobic leaders are trembling before homosexual activists and a world gone mad in its embrace and celebration of all the things Romans 1:18-32 condemns with incredibly descriptive terminology.
Their intense fear of being “seen as homophobic bigots” for believing the Bible and using God’s Biblical terms has transformed them into homophobic leaders who are actively, habitually, and dogmatically exchanging the truth of God for the same-sex attracted Christian lies Sam Allberry and Jackie Hill Perry are selling in their books and through their conference speaking fees. In full homophobic panic, TGC and much of Evangelicalism have thrown off God’s Biblical vocabulary terms as unnecessary, distasteful, divisive, unloving — even hateful.
You need only listen to Ligon Duncan’s Ligonier Conference Q&A commentary, do a quick survey of Sam Allberry’s livingout.org website, or read Jackie Hill Perry’s Gay Girl, Good God to see how God’s truth, moral terms, and holy commands are being exchanged for the world’s lies, amoral terms, and perverse counsel. TGC, T4G, and 9Marks’ esteemed leaders need to be warned that homophobia is a form of cowardice and “coward” is another unpopular Biblical term found very near “abominable” in Revelation 21:8.
TGC’s article deceptively assures evangelicals that God has raised up, “biblically faithful, same-sex attracted Christians…to speak for and to his church,” and that “We need to field our A-team in the public square. And the rest of us must follow their lead.”
There are several problems with that statement. Foremost, there are no biblically faithful, same-sex attracted Christians, as TGC, Sam Allberry, and Jackie Hill Perry define them. Bible-believing Christians need to categorically reject and expose TGC, Sam Allberry, and Jackie Hill Perry’s exchange of God’s true Gospel for a Same-Sex Attracted Christian False Gospel that leaves men and women perpetually enslaved to what the Bible calls abominable, unnatural, shameful, vile passions.
They boast the perverse acting out and unholy feeding of their vile passions through supposedly “non-sexual” hand-holding, hugging, cuddling, and kissing within live-in or casual relationships with other men and women who identify as same-sex attracted Christians. That’s right — Sam Allberry’s website encourages sodomy attracted “Christian” men to live with sodomy attracted “Christian” men, to hold hands, to hug, to cuddle, to kiss, and to raise children together (more on that below).
Those of us who still hold fast to the Biblical definition of repentance found in 2 Corinthians 7:11 must reject TGC’s false repentance that leaves men and women perpetually enslaved to vile passions. Those of us who still believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ saves sinners from both the eternal penalty and indwelling power of sin must reject TGC’s false gospel that leaves men and women enslaved to perversion and acting it out under the guise of sanctified same-sex attracted Christian affection.
We must not follow the lead of TGC, T4G, and 9Mark’s A-team but instead, follow the righteous lead of the Apostle Paul and stand firmly against their A-team’s perverse Sodomy Attracted Christian Cuddle Club. We must not follow the lead of Thabiti Anyabwile, Mark Dever, Kevin De Young, Ligon Duncan, Tim Keller, Albert Mohler, Russell Moore, Ray Ortland, John Piper, David Platt, and Sam Storms’ A-team but instead follow the Gospel defending lead of the Apostle Paul in Galatians 1:6-9 and stand firmly against their A-team’s Same-Sex Attracted Christian Apostasy.
