I theology of sexuality 2013 a foundation for a sexual ethics
I. Theology of Sexuality: (2013)A Foundation for a Sexual Ethics

Four Stages of Redemptive History in the Bible:

  • 1) Creation

  • 2) Fall

  • 3) Redemption

  • 4) Glorification.

    For our present purposes, two themes for each of the four stages will be identified.


Ii psychology of sexuality 2013 a context for a sexual ethic
II. Psychology of Sexuality: (2013)A Context for a Sexual Ethic

  • The most significant and useful psychological end point of the conversation, dialog or debate on homosexuality is NOT on causes or changes or cures for homosexual orientation,

  • The most significant and useful psychological end point is sexual identity.


Iii psychology of christ 2013 a motivation for a sexual ethic
III. Psychology of Christ: (2013)A Motivation for a Sexual Ethic

The key question for all of us is this:

  • “How do we relate with each other when our beliefs, practices, values and views, deeply differ, distress and even offend each other?”

  • My great hope for us is that we all would be able to move forward with this question.

  • To facilitate this movement, I’d like to highlight the contrasts between the Psychology of Christ and the Psychology of the Cosmos

    of Compelling Love when we clash against our sexual identity differences.

  • 5 Guiding Principles:

  • Same sex attraction & same sex orientation are not determined by personal choices

  • These two tiers are not personal sin choices

  • These two tiers are not commonly changeable

  • Celibacy with same sex attraction & orientation is a lifestyle choice to be supported with connecting grace & truth

  • Identity and Maturity in Christ is the goal for all
