Matthew Vines took a break from his studies at Harvard University in 2010 to study the issue of what the Bible really says about homosexuality. His conclusions should be of interest to all gay Christians, as he explains how the Bible does NOT condemn homosexuality, or same sex relationships. You might expect him to come from a liberal Christian theological background, but his upbringing is in the Evangelical Church.
In this hour long talk given on March 8, 2012, at the College Hill United Methodist Church, in Witchita, Kansas, Vines provides strong arguments that the traditional bias against homosexuality is a false interpretation of Scripture. Calm, articulate, organized, and lacking the fire-and-brimstone oratory usually seen when the issue of homosexuality is raised from the pulpit, Vines explains why the traditional anti-gay animus based on the Bible is wrong, and how Christians must understand that same-sex relations can enjoy the same acceptance and favor in the eyes of their God as heterosexual relationships.
