So, the Southern Baptist Church is moving away from the Boy Scouts, because nothing says being like Jesus like moving away from children, even children you find vulgar, even children who represent what you consider the sickest of sins…
For Southern Baptist pastor Tim Reed, it was Scripture versus the Scouts. “God’s word explicitly says homosexuality is a choice, a sin,” said Reed, pastor of First Baptist Church of Gravel Ridge in Jacksonville, Arkansas.
So, let’s play a game. Explicit means “fully revealed or expressed without vagueness.”
What does the bible explicitly state? Now… the rules are simple:
- If the stated view can be challenged by another verse, then it is not explicit.
- You cannot deny facts such as historical criticism, or even lexicons.
