Adventist Leaders and Writers Address Homosexuality

Since many of us have a hard time admitting our prejudices, Overcoming Prejudice Against Homosexuals by Christopher Blake is well worth reading.  

Seventh-day Adventist Pastor John McLarty explores a searching question in "What Would Jesus Say to Homosexuals?"

Biblical Marriage
October 2, 2003, editorial by Adventist Review Editor William G. Johnsson, argues that the definition of biblical marriage cannot be stretched to accommodate same-gender unions.
Marriage Under Siege: Is Society Headed for Moral Chaos?
October 2, 2003. Adventist Review Associate Editor Roy Adams argues that there's "no time for silence now" as he foresees the legalization of gay marriage.
Beyond the Box: Upstream
Leslie N. Pollard, Vice President for Diversity at Loma Linda University Adventist Health Sciences Center reports on the difficulty encountered in the process of standing firm on the biblical position on marriage in the face of the current popularity of approving of gay relationships. (August 1, 2002)

Christopher Blake, former editor of Insight, a Seventh-day Adventist magazine for youth, wrote a well-researched article in December 1992, entitled, "Redeeming Our Sad Gay Situation." We feel it is still relevant today -- especially as we see conservative church members retrenching in an extreme position regarding homosexuality. Because of its length, the article is supplied in several parts. Click here for the first part. For a printer-friendly version (all one long file), click here.
