Same-sex attraction ‘safe space’ – at Bible college!

September 16, 2016   |   Category: Prophecy News   |   Tags: , ,

Biola University, considered one of the most conservative evangelical Christian universities in the nation, has announced the creation of a “purposeful, community-focused program” for students with same-sex attractions.

 

A spokesman told WND the program does not in any way conflict with the doctrinal statement that, in italics and bold-face type on its website, affirms, “Biblical marriage consists only of a faithful, heterosexual union between one genetic male and one genetic female, and biblical marriage is the only legitimate and acceptable context for a sexual relationship.”

 

The Web page for the new program, called Sustinere, explains that students with same-sex attractions typically don’t feel free to talk about their experiences and feel unsupported in their community.

 

The program “will seek to provide a caring and supportive community where students can journey together to live authentically and lovingly with same-sex sexual attractions, orientations, and identities.”

 

Asked whether that means Biola has concluded that people with same-sex attractions are “born that way,” Matthew Hooper, the associate dean of students for student development, told WND no.

 

Biola’s belief that same-sex behavior is a sin is stated throughout its position papers and is taught in the classroom, he said.

 

However, he told WND a statement may need to be posted on the new program’s Web page, which provides no indication that same-sex activity is not approved.
