Addendum: Different but the Same:Testimonies about Homosexuality and Change.

A MISUNDERSTOOD PROCESS.

In this last section of his blog post, Heath Lambert says that RT has an approach to working with homosexual people that is not worthy of Christian ministry.

Why?

Well, let's see...

I continue my critique of Heath Lambert's critique of Reparative Therapy.

Part 1 one week ago (here).

Part 2 this week (here).

Part 3 one week in the future (here).

Addendum: Different but the Same:Testimonies about Homosexuality and Change.

A MISUNDERSTOOD PURSUIT.

The next misunderstanding Lambert identifies in Reparative Therapy is the reason for Reparative Therapy. Lambert says, "...the pursuit of RT is heterosexuality." And then he goes on to say:

This goal is not one that biblical counselors can embrace. The Bible never declares that heterosexuality is the goal of a full and contented life. I can say it more strongly. The Bible never says that heterosexuality, in general terms, is a good thing. Sex that the Bible praises is the kind that happens in heterosexual marriage—that is sex in a marriage between one man and one woman. The Bible, however, never commands or commends heterosexual desires in general terms.

Now, this gets a little confusing.

Heath Lambert has a blog post called, "What's wrong with Reparative Therapy?" In it, he has done Christians a favour.

Lambert has given the swelling chorus of Christian leaders' complaints about Reparative Therapy some susbstance.

Before reading his blog post, I found responding to anti-Reparative Therapy comments was like trying to pin down a rumour. Everyone had heard one side of someone else's story, but no one was sitting down and explaining exactly what they thought the problem was.

Heath Lambert has done that.

The problem is, he hasn't done it very well...

I've often thought that Australian Christians are too quiet about the abortion industry in this nation. This is not directly anti-abortion, but it is beautifully pro-life.

Yes, it's out! And it has been since 2013. And it looks like a Barbie movie...in terms of animation.

Should you watch it?

Yep.

Why?

Because it's not an American movie....
